@alcinnz The copyright cabal going after Internet Archive. Despicable. Absolutely shameful. Libraries should be temples, whether online or off. They should be the centrepiece and pride of our species. Their doors should swing wide open for all comers, both writers and readers. Any society which undercuts the Library has lost the aegis of Heaven.

Just in case it has already happened to you: For an unpacked TAR archive🗄️ no extra folder 📁 is created and the content is mixed with many other files in the same directory? How to clean up this mess⁉️

$ tar -tf Nice_Prog_RC1.tar.gz | xargs rm -r

With 'tar -tf' in :terminal: only the content of the archive is displayed. This list of files is given to 'xargs', which passes it on to 'rm -r' for deletion. On the next try we better unpack the archive into an extra folder.👨‍💻

I think my next attempt at ciabatta, I'll dust the couche and bench with semolina rather than AP flour like I did this time. I'm not a fan of that "coated with flour" result I got this time, although the bread itself turned out marvellous.

Also reduce the cooking time by a couple of minutes. I'm sure I don't need the full 25 minutes. I'll try 22 and see what happens.

They don't want you to be able to use the web without JS – the focus shifted completely from hyperlinked document delivery to untrusted multi-source application delivery thereby enabling and powering a huge global surveillance machine which they use to make their money.

@phryk I still think that Google only makes deals with Mozilla to keep them alive as a competitor that helps staying out of antitrust trouble.

The four ways that ex-internet idealists explain where it all went wrong: technologyreview.com/2018/08/2

"Both Optimism and Pessimism make the mistake of assuming that the internet has inherent features, but like any technology conceived of and built by humans, it is shaped by human struggles, by the push and pull of a multitude of interests and schools of thought."

At this point, I no longer feel it is merely morally permissible to violate copyright, but rather one’s *moral duty* to subvert the vast majority of copyright. “Intellectual property” is a thoroughly disgusting Orwellianism.

We have entered a period where a samizdat underground is necessary to sustain the basic facets of civilization. And public education is a central pillar of the commonweal.

I am not necessarily ignoring you, though that remains highly probable.

Remind me why didn't we use client-side certificates for web APIs? Why do we tolerate OAuth again?

Money is a form of unaccountable power.

It doesn't matter what you did to get the money; if you have a lot of it, you can make things happen.

(There's a small amount of accountability around what you do with it, but enough money makes it possible to hide from that as well.)

Let's say I had a friend who fucked off in school and now understands fundamental concepts in mathematics less intricately than he would like to. Would you lovely folks have any recommendations for resources that may help this friend of mine? Asking for a friend. Friend of a friend, even.
