there's at least a disclosure now on the "create new apple id" screen that when you create an account it's going to enable icloud backup which backs up everything on your device. it doesn't mention that it's without e2e encryption and that apple and the fbi can see it all, but it does at least mention that your data's going to leave.

it's sort of amazing that apple of the 2020s is now the microsoft of the 2000s.

the OOBE on an iphone12mini with a new apple id is absolutely atrocious. apple's really just not good at network services, for the most part. account creation should not be this difficult.

apple's "stay on 14.x point release or upgrade to new major version" upgrade options being exposed in UI are their tacit admission that the new os is boring and slow

Coinbase is now working with ICE.

Good thing you can't talk politics at work there!

how many times is linux going to change where the dns server IPs go?

for some reason my golang apps dns is still broken in containers, but everything else works fine. what the fuck golang

ugh tried updating my system by holding back the package and updating everything else, somehow broke dns inside my containers, which then upgrading and restarting the daemon (which kills ALL my dozens of containers and restarts them) didn't fix it.

@cnx i'm asking for a saas like 500px or flickr or something that i can put a little js embed on my webpage that will show the photos in the appropriate resolution/size and serve them from the third party

@cnx yes i would like to embed them on my website but i don't want to do any of the following:

1) massively increase the size of the git repo that runs my website

2) write the code to generate derived sizes/resolutions

3) run the code to generate derived sizes/resolutions on every website change

4) write the javascript to embed them dynamically based on screen dpi and screen size

5) require a non-web-based workflow for publishing new images

offer: i run a mattermost server (which has a mobile app that does notifications) which i can create arbitrary private channels on, which can receive webhooks. i also run a statping instance on the same server. if you'd like some free offsite service monitoring, i'm happy to set up some icmp or http checks for you and hook them up to a private channel (so you get mobile notifications). inquire via email.

i knew years ago that things like slack and discord would be the killer apps of the internet, and didn't build them because i find implementation and product details to be relatively boring.

in particular, i'm super duper surprised that apple has opted to use slack internally. it's caused no end to problems for their management, it sounds like, and also not being e2e seems like a real secrecy/privacy/security nightmare for their internal security teams.

considering how much sensitive shit people do on slack, it's surprising the amount of 3p js that is loaded on's main page. (it's much less on the <subdomain> actual app sites.)

@surfingalot if this question is about discord, it's all new accounts created from vpns/tor.

I'd like to start publishing some of my photography. I use Lightroom to edit raws and export to high resolution 20-40MB JPEGs. What's the easiest way for me to share them with the world? Paid services are ok.

i'd like to hire a junior golang developer to make some simple webapps on a contract (remote, of course) basis. please email me, or have anyone interested email me.

hey google why don't you add a 301 for /voice to instead of just 404ing? every fucking time i have to remember

Is there a machine-readable database of the SCPs, or perhaps an API? I have an idea.

@raphael yeah, i guess we're in agreement: projects that depend on hype are irrelevant projects, in my view.
