tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] XRevan86: some distros use proprietary blobs to accelerate drawingJun 12 00:01
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] pmOS does notJun 12 00:01
BaronVladimirHarI just got some more old medical bills, but the good news is that while my insurance denied them, they predate the bankruptcy.Jun 12 00:02
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] Ariadne: What proprietary blobs does PinePhone need though?Jun 12 00:02
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] GTK3 will use the GPU to draw whenever possible ala CairoJun 12 00:02
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] XRevan86: GPUJun 12 00:02
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] i believeJun 12 00:02
BaronVladimirHarSo I sent them a letter explaining that my bankruptcy cleared all the debt from before May 26th, 2020 and their bill is from April 2020, and here's the discharge order from the court.Jun 12 00:02
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] i need to checkJun 12 00:02
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] Cairo is not GPU-acceleratedJun 12 00:02

BaronVladimirHarMozilla switched from Cairo to "Azure" a while back. At least on Windows.Jun 12 00:04
BaronVladimirHarIt hooks into Direct2D.Jun 12 00:04
MinceRwhat, they render your UI in the cloud? :>Jun 12 00:04
BaronVladimirHarWhich was added in Windows 7.Jun 12 00:04
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] yes, surprisingly, Cairo does not use Direct2DJun 12 00:04
tr-bridge[A​riadne/tr] :pJun 12 00:04
BaronVladimirHarI believe it also got backported to Windows Vista Service Pack 2.Jun 12 00:04
CrystalMaththat's why my latest program will be using pure libX11 and copying a pre-rendered pixmap, to ensure software rendering and easier portability to DOSJun 12 00:07
MinceRlolJun 12 00:09
MinceRwhy not just write it for dos and ship it with dosbox and a starter scriptJun 12 00:09
BaronVladimirHarNo, you had to install Vista SP2 and the Platform Update to get Direct2D.Jun 12 00:10
BaronVladimirHarIt brings in all of DX 11 for that matter.Jun 12 00:10
schestowitzwowJun 12 00:12
BaronVladimirHarI recall reading that Vista was *almost* Windows 7 at that point.Jun 12 00:12
BaronVladimirHarThey left out a few things and it did go out of support sooner.Jun 12 00:12
BaronVladimirHarThe new service management framework in Vista in particular was a complete mess.Jun 12 00:13
BaronVladimirHarHP gave me a Vista Home Basic update disc for the laptop but it was so slow that I gave up on it quickly.Jun 12 00:14
BaronVladimirHarschestowitz Now's a really bad time to buy a car due to that chip shortage.Jun 12 00:16
BaronVladimirHarParts for my old car are still about the same as they were.Jun 12 00:16
schestowitzwow, so many nitter instances are rate limited nowJun 12 00:16
schestowitzlike, def. most of themJun 12 00:16
BaronVladimirHarI laid out some money today for some structural repairs that would have been crazy before, comparing opportunity cost.Jun 12 00:16
BaronVladimirHarBut between Illinois and their new used car surtax and the price inflation, repair is now the better option again.Jun 12 00:17

BaronVladimirHarGroceries, car repairs, gasoline, clothes....Jun 12 00:47
MinceRwhen companies doing shipping to the home often don't want you to exchange cash with the courierJun 12 00:47
BaronVladimirHarThe Federal Reserve studied it and came to the conclusion that the banks basically rip off people who pay cash in the form of higher prices at the store.Jun 12 00:48
BaronVladimirHarThen give the money to people who use the cards.Jun 12 00:48
MinceRand of course if you have something shipped to a delivery box, the only way to pay there tends to be via cardJun 12 00:48
BaronVladimirHarEven the gas stations that offer a 5 cent per gallon discount to use cash aren't worth it.Jun 12 00:48
MinceR(which, judging by cash-based vending machines, is totally understandable)Jun 12 00:48
BaronVladimirHarWith what gas costs now, I can usually get 13-15 cents per gallon in points.Jun 12 00:48
MinceRand of course online payment doesn't work with cash :>Jun 12 00:49
BaronVladimirHarschestowitzmight have noticed my plan to do occasional trips to Wisconsin for gas now.Jun 12 00:49
BaronVladimirHarThe Democrats figure that people burning more gas to get to Wisconsin because it's worth the financial loss in gas burned to avoid their gas tax will reduce carbon emissions.Jun 12 00:49
MinceR:>Jun 12 00:50
BaronVladimirHarJust like you can't buy a gun without a FOID card.Jun 12 00:50
BaronVladimirHarI figured out the spread will be about 45 cents per gallon after the first of next month.Jun 12 00:50
BaronVladimirHarIf I go up there and lose a gallon ($3) round trip and save $9, I net $6. If I have to get a tank of gas every 10 days or so, then that's $18 a month, or $216 a year, actually.Jun 12 00:51
BaronVladimirHarEven after the wasted gas.Jun 12 00:51
BaronVladimirHarSo it's basically, I don't really have to do anything to pocket $216 except drive 8 miles out of my way into Wisconsin a few times per month.Jun 12 00:52

BaronVladimirHarMinceR: When you consider the time wasted for the $216 in net tax avoidance income, then it's still more per hour than some Uber drivers make.Jun 12 00:56
BaronVladimirHarAnd no risk of getting shot by a fare.Jun 12 00:56
BaronVladimirHarIt takes about an hour each month if Google's travel time is accurate, I suppose less the time you would spend pumping gas either way. $216 /12 hours per year works out to $18 an hour. Easily better than Uber drivers make.Jun 12 00:59
BaronVladimirHarIf Illinois had been happy enough to remain tax-competitive with surrounding states, it wouldn't have lost the taxes and jobs to other states. What else is new?Jun 12 01:00

MinceRand a bit heavyJun 12 03:20
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] Just like the phone?Jun 12 03:20
MinceRdunno, iirc the phone can't boot from removable devicesJun 12 03:20
MinceRcurrently i'm trying to figure out what the actual security advantage of picking AMD (PSP) over intel (ME)Jun 12 03:20
MinceRlike, is the AMT code actually missing from devices they claim are "not eligible" for "vPro"Jun 12 03:21
MinceR+grammarJun 12 03:21
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] MinceR: From what I've heard PSP is nowhere near as ambitious as ME, but that sentence is all I know.Jun 12 03:23
MinceRyeahJun 12 03:23
MinceRstill, it too has access to a lot of hardware built into the system, so the main difference i can find is what code is actually there and exploitable more easily by attackersJun 12 03:24

MinceRoh, also, it seems that most accounts of the PSP gloss over the "secure OS" that is loaded into the SRAM of the PSP at the end of the boot process or soJun 12 03:24
MinceRi don't have much info about thatJun 12 03:24
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] MinceR: Regarding the Librem phone, I don't know if it is brickable or not, but it has problems with appeal in general, it's a strange device.Jun 12 03:25
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] Maybe later when the software is more ready a more expensive phone than the PinePhone would have a bigger audience, but right now… don't know about that. Also it's bulky.Jun 12 03:27

tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] MinceR: Also software-wise phosh and the related software like the phone book, the SMS messenger and such are a Librem project.Jun 12 03:33
MinceRi knowJun 12 03:33
MinceRand it wasn't my first choiceJun 12 03:33
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] In that respect, ye probably do care about PureOS :)Jun 12 03:33
MinceRit's just that sxmo and hildon (maemo) don't seem to be ready for use yetJun 12 03:33
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] I on the contrary don't, phosh annoys me greatly.Jun 12 03:34
MinceR(and i'm not really sure what hildon is capable of anyway)Jun 12 03:34
MinceRalso, if i were to use sxmo, i'd probably want gtk to be built to use x, not waylandJun 12 03:39
MinceRwhich pmOS doesn't seem to doJun 12 03:39
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] MinceR: It's a touchscreen phone anyway. I never believed in that ye'd be able to use sxmo productively :)Jun 12 03:40

tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] It's all in the logs, heh.Jun 12 03:40
MinceRit has touchscreen gestures and a pretty usable virtual keyboardJun 12 03:40
MinceRafaict you don't even need to use the hardware buttons for most of the menu functionalityJun 12 03:40
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] MinceR: It's just not a good design for the touchscreen.Jun 12 03:41
MinceRjust for lock/suspend stuff (which doesn't work for me currently, and is the main thing keeping me from using sxmo)Jun 12 03:41

tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] MinceR: The amount of work to navigate menus for everything.Jun 12 03:43
MinceRit isn't that much work if you just tap on the menuJun 12 03:43

tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] It's nice when one's deductions align with reality perfectly.Jun 12 03:48
MinceRhow do you know for sure?Jun 12 03:48
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] MinceR: Clearly not from rasengan, heck if I can get a straight answer from him.Jun 12 03:49
MinceRapparently the "Secure OS" is called "Kinibi TEE"Jun 12 03:50

tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] So yea, the reasons behind the downfall of freenode are quite something.Jun 12 03:55
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] schestowitz speaks about the importance of freenode, the nicks, the channels, and that's not hard to understand, but that's supporting the man who destroyed the whole freenode organisation and took over, over not wanting TOTP.Jun 12 03:58
*rianne__ ( has joined #techrightsJun 12 03:59
MinceRthe freenode organization was not destroyed and what happened to it was not done by one manJun 12 03:59
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] He's the reason why freenode is dying, and so all the love and support he should get?Jun 12 03:59
MinceRfreenode has been dying ever since lilo diedJun 12 04:00
MinceRif not earlierJun 12 04:00
MinceRthey've set it up so that it was always heavily dependent on moneyJun 12 04:00
MinceRand then they set up a company to own itJun 12 04:00
MinceRand then they sold that companyJun 12 04:00
*liberty_box ( has joined #techrightsJun 12 04:00
MinceRand then two large egos got into a fight over who gets to control the domain nameJun 12 04:01
MinceRand then i didn't mention how they put people in charge (long ago) who shouldn't have been trusted near free software ever, and now they even have their signatures on a letter to prove thatJun 12 04:01
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] MinceR: And then no one actually took control over the domain name.Jun 12 04:01
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] The claims that tomaw took away access are bogus.Jun 12 04:02
MinceRmeanwhile we have hundreds of IRC networks running on infrastructure controlled and provided by the people who run them, without any corporation or foundation necessaryJun 12 04:03
CrystalMathTOTP?Jun 12 04:03
CrystalMathi don't want that crap eitherJun 12 04:03
rbraunthey dissolved the company that owned itJun 12 04:04
CrystalMathrbraun: hmm?Jun 12 04:04
rbraunso no company owned itJun 12 04:04
rbraunCrystalMath: PDPCJun 12 04:04
CrystalMaththat was a long time agoJun 12 04:04
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] CrystalMath: If the staff didn't feel like a password is sufficient for protecting their everything, I can understand that.Jun 12 04:04
rbraunfreenode ltd wasn't supposed to own it and it's unclear how the sale was ever validJun 12 04:04
MinceRafter PDPC was dissolved, freenode ltd. was incorporated at some pointJun 12 04:04
CrystalMathalso Christel owned freenode ever since the Texas PDPC dissolvedJun 12 04:04
MinceRso it seems people made the same mistake at least 2 timesJun 12 04:04
CrystalMaththat was 2008Jun 12 04:05
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] MinceR: freenode also ran a convention.Jun 12 04:05
MinceRi knowJun 12 04:05
rbraunCrystalMath: that's not at all clearJun 12 04:05
CrystalMathrbraun: all the servers were leased to herJun 12 04:05
CrystalMathwhat else is there?Jun 12 04:05
rbraunCrystalMath: most of the servers were provided as barter, there was no "lease"Jun 12 04:05
rbraunlater on she may have leased some servers, but then she takes on the role of a sponsorJun 12 04:05
CrystalMaththere was, i asked about donating a server to freenodeJun 12 04:06
rbraunMinceR: definitely was two large egoes thoJun 12 04:06
CrystalMathi was told that there are contractsJun 12 04:06
rbraunthat's for sureJun 12 04:06
rbraunCrystalMath: when?Jun 12 04:06
CrystalMathbetween 2013 and 2017Jun 12 04:06
CrystalMathi think 2014Jun 12 04:06
CrystalMathyou basically have to sign a contract with Christel, and then you can't touch your serverJun 12 04:07
CrystalMathonly freenode administrates it remotelyJun 12 04:07
CrystalMaththis is to prevent server owners from spying on PMsJun 12 04:07
MinceRallegedlyJun 12 04:07
MinceRit seems like it's a recipe for disasterJun 12 04:07
CrystalMathrbraun: everything seemed to be in her name, and she owned the networkJun 12 04:08
MinceRand if you don't want your PMs to be spied upon, use Tox over TorJun 12 04:08
MinceRor RetroShare over TorJun 12 04:08
CrystalMathi think that was even before 2013Jun 12 04:08
rbraunwell PDPC was a legal entity before thenJun 12 04:09
rbraunso it would have been with themJun 12 04:09
MinceRor fork Ricochet and update it to the new Tor code and key size :>Jun 12 04:09
CrystalMathi don't think so, tbh, i think that as soon as the texas on dissolved, it was all Christel from that point onJun 12 04:09
rbraunwrongJun 12 04:09
CrystalMath*texas oneJun 12 04:09
rbraunPDPC was legally incorporated later on in the UKJun 12 04:09
CrystalMathChristel founded PDPC LtdJun 12 04:09
CrystalMathyeahJun 12 04:09
rbraunbad move, considering both UK libel law and UK charity lawJun 12 04:09
MinceR+Jun 12 04:10
CrystalMathyeah it didn't workJun 12 04:10
CrystalMathbut i doubt that that PDPC owned freenodeJun 12 04:10
rbraunand was forced to dissolve due to lack of required funds in 2013Jun 12 04:10
rbraunright, soJun 12 04:10
rbraunif PDPC didn't own freenode, then christel didn'tJun 12 04:10
MinceRwell, people doubt that freenode ltd. owns freenode today, so that's not surprising :>Jun 12 04:10
rbraunand if she didn't own it then she couldn't sell it to rasenganJun 12 04:10
CrystalMathrbraun: the contracts were with Christel i thinkJun 12 04:10
CrystalMaththe entire timeJun 12 04:11
rbraundoesn't mean she owned the network or its servicesJun 12 04:11
CrystalMathuntil 2017Jun 12 04:11
CrystalMathrbraun: what else is there?Jun 12 04:11
rbraunit means you would have had a legal obligation to her to keep freenode safeJun 12 04:11
CrystalMathyeah but freenode *is* just these servers :PJun 12 04:11
rbraunnot that she owned itJun 12 04:11
rbraunno, it's the services db and the actual operations of the networkJun 12 04:12
CrystalMathwell later on it was Freenode LtdJun 12 04:12
CrystalMathand Freenode Ltd owned the database and had all the servers leased to themJun 12 04:12
CrystalMathso it became perfectly clear thenJun 12 04:13
rbraunyou don't know that they owned thatJun 12 04:13
CrystalMathwho else?Jun 12 04:14
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] To me the ownership aspect is a very big whatever as it has no involvement in justification of Libera's existence.Jun 12 04:14
rbraunthe unincorporated consortium of staffJun 12 04:14
CrystalMathrbraun: i disagree with thatJun 12 04:14
rbraunwho had no employment contracts whatsoever to the network they ranJun 12 04:14
MinceRseems to have a pretty big involvement in that to meJun 12 04:14
rbraunor to freenode ltdJun 12 04:14
tr-bridge[X​Revan86/tr] To me it doesn't matter if rasengan had the legal right to topple freenode. No one's trying to sue him over this.Jun 12 04:14
rbraunno, contrariwise, *he* threatened to sue to establish his right to do soJun 12 04:15
rbraunand the exorbitant cost of litigating it in the UK convinced staff to fork it insteadJun 12 04:15
MinceRit hasn't been toppled, at least not yetJun 12 04:15
rbrauntrueJun 12 04:15
CrystalMathi should start an IRC network called cheburnetJun 12 04:15
MinceRlolJun 12 04:15
MinceRsounds like a network i wouldn't want to useJun 12 04:15
rbraunand two decent networks surviving is better than one, but the administration of this one so far has left a lot to be desiredJun 12 04:15
CrystalMathrbraun: i really love what they're doing, there's now even a free BNC!Jun 12 04:16
MinceRso has the administration of the other 2 networks advertising themselves as being about free softwareJun 12 04:16
rbraunthere's now even (checks notes) another round of random vengeful k-lines this morningJun 12 04:16
MinceRdo your notes say "another"?Jun 12 04:16
rbraunwell there are the k-lines of ex-staff rasengan sent out right when he took overJun 12 04:17
CrystalMathFuchs deserved itJun 12 04:17
MinceRif jose and amdj got k-lines, they deserve themJun 12 04:17
rbrauni don't think they did! :PJun 12 04:18
rbraunit was othersJun 12 04:18
MinceRalso nhandlerJun 12 04:18
rbraunsorry to burst that bubble for yaJun 12 04:18
CrystalMathrbraun: Fuchs did get oneJun 12 04:18
CrystalMathbut it was temporaryJun 12 04:18
rbraunre over TOTP, idk if that was any more than the trigger, but i think tomaw was about as arrogant in that and at fault in causing the split 12 04:19
-TechrightsBot-tr/ | · GitHubJun 12 04:19
rbrauni just don't at all approve of what rasengan did after thatJun 12 04:19
rbraunCrystalMath: how do you know it was temporary? his services account is still frozenJun 12 04:20
CrystalMathhmmJun 12 04:20
CrystalMathi thought i saw him on laterJun 12 04:20
CrystalMathbut maybe notJun 12 04:20
rbrauni've seen the others on, but on alternate nicksJun 12 04:20
CrystalMathi talked to jess today :PJun 12 04:20
rbraunexcept KindOne, that k-line and freeze was reverted, but he wasn't staffJun 12 04:20

gustaffwiw the wifi on my Rpi4 is a bit flaky when transferring large number of filesJun 12 16:36
BaronVladimirHarUntil Comcast forces it off their network I don't plan to buy a new one.Jun 12 16:36
BaronVladimirHarThe sooner I buy one, the sooner the new one is obsolete again.Jun 12 16:37
BaronVladimirHarDOCSIS 3.1 devices are still fairly expensive and they're not even that much of an improvement.Jun 12 16:37
BaronVladimirHarThey're not strictly necessary because Comcast hasn't really upgraded their networks to where the potential performance improvements would help.Jun 12 16:39
BaronVladimirHarEven gigabit internet would be prohibitively expensive and DOCSIS 3.0 can actually handle that.Jun 12 16:39
MinceRit doesn't have to be prohibitively expensiveJun 12 16:40

MinceRmy ISP is upgrading me from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps soon, allegedlyJun 12 16:40
MinceRat the same price as beforeJun 12 16:40
BaronVladimirHarIt's like that because of the government protecting their monopoly instead of hitting them with antitrust like they should.Jun 12 16:40
BaronVladimirHarAgain, when does the government follow its own laws?Jun 12 16:41
MinceRthere isn't much competition here eitherJun 12 16:41
BaronVladimirHarThe government doesn't follow its own laws and when you sue them in court, about 90% of the time, the court says that the law doesn't say what the law says.Jun 12 16:41
BaronVladimirHar😁Jun 12 16:42
MinceRyupJun 12 16:42
BaronVladimirHarSo you start out where only about 5% of the time does the law benefit you, and then 9 times out of 10 of the 5%, the court will hand down a ruling that says the government doesn't have to obey the law.Jun 12 16:44
BaronVladimirHarSo you have about a half a percent chance of the law being both on your side and held up in court.Jun 12 16:44
BaronVladimirHarMinceR: I'm kind of shocked that I won my FOID appeal at the state police commissioner review level.Jun 12 16:48

BaronVladimirHarOh, that's the great thing MinceR.... Appeals can go on for years. Lawyers can work on contingent if they think the state will end up being the party that loses.Jun 12 16:50
BaronVladimirHarAll those billable hours...Jun 12 16:50

immibisbtw your protection against this kind of thing is VOTINGJun 12 16:53
BaronVladimirHarThere was a big panic between 1996-2004 in the US among conservatives.Jun 12 16:53
immibisno system can defend against a majority of idiotsJun 12 16:53
BaronVladimirHarThey realized, due to polling, that it was really the older generations that didn't approve of gay marriage by a wide margin, and as soon as they were gone, the issue would be lost.Jun 12 16:54
BaronVladimirHarSo they tried passing gay marriage bans in both the state and federal constitutions.Jun 12 16:54
BaronVladimirHarThey put it on the ballot in many states, and shoved it in, and it's dead language now.Jun 12 16:54
immibistrans people are the new gay people (from conservatives' POV)Jun 12 16:54
BaronVladimirHarThe majority of Republicans have moved past gay marriage. Not the huge majority. Like 55-60% of them have.Jun 12 16:55
BaronVladimirHarBut yeah, those trans bathroom bills and trans sports bills are big now.Jun 12 16:55
BaronVladimirHarI really don't care who uses what bathroom or if you have an X on gender on your driver's license. Functionally, it makes little difference.Jun 12 16:56
BaronVladimirHarConservatives are trying to back their bathroom bills with the "I don't want some pervert in the bathroom with my kids.", but perverts have access to kids and I doubt the statistics on that would change too much.Jun 12 16:57
*CrystalMath (~coderain@reactos/developer/theflash) has joined #techrightsJun 12 16:57
immibisclearly, no conservative that backs a bathroom bill is aware that trans men also exist, because they would freak out when they saw a trans man use a women's bathroomJun 12 16:58
BaronVladimirHarThere never has been a criminal law in most states on which bathroom you use.Jun 12 16:58
immibisusing the wrong bathroom probably falls under trespassing or something like thatJun 12 16:59
BaronVladimirHarA business may ask you to leave for any reason, and if you don't it's trespassing. But that's been the extent of it. Most people would feel embarrassed about walking into the wrong bathroom.Jun 12 16:59

BaronVladimirHarThe government reserves the right to do truly awful things to anyone at any time it wants, even if it currently chooses not to do so.Jun 12 18:14
BaronVladimirHarMinceR: The Democrats couldn't repeal the draft by a party line vote right now, but they could repeal the financial consequences for not doing so.Jun 12 18:16
MinceRBaronVladimirHar: "If they can bleed and run, they can hold a gun."Jun 12 18:16
BaronVladimirHarFor example, you don't qualify for federal aid for college if you don't register, but that's a thing that affects the federal budget.Jun 12 18:16

BaronVladimirHarThere was a guy that came in complaining of his Cadillac doing it one day and he didn't want to pay $3,500 to have the air ride replaced on a 1998 Cadillac.Jun 12 18:30
BaronVladimirHarSo he started to walk off. I said, "You could just have it converted to normal struts.". He asked the shop manager how much that would be and he said "$950".Jun 12 18:30
BaronVladimirHarIt's what almost everyone ends up doing at some point. Giving up and changing over to quick struts on both axles.Jun 12 18:31
BaronVladimirHarHe asked the manager what the downside is. "It won't ride like a Cadillac anymore."Jun 12 18:31
BaronVladimirHarI was like, "Hey, if the air ride's broken it's definitely worse now than struts that aren't broken.".Jun 12 18:31
BaronVladimirHarThe struts are the main load bearing component in the suspension system, so at first they're just noisy and you're bouncing around like crazy, then they start damaging other expensive parts in there, and then your wheel could actually fall off while you're driving.Jun 12 18:33
BaronVladimirHarPeople drive around on bad struts and turn the radio up. I've seen plenty of cars on the road recently where the wheel fell off and they crashed, or it was parked and sitting on a wheel that folded in.Jun 12 18:33
BaronVladimirHarI don't know if they're broke or just cheap, but getting into an accident over a wear item that does need to be replaced sometimes is stupid.Jun 12 18:34
