@lattera I'm (@Vavassor) accepting donations sort of recently through patreon.com/Vavassor or paypal.me/Vavassor.

I've been avoiding advertising here just because I don't want any confusion that those funds aren't compensating any other contributors.

Welcome to your tech Idiocracy dystopia: incompetent leaders, corporate rule, capitalism eating itself, and a future where any and all information you give to any 3rd party WILL be sold and used against you in any way imaginable.
Like, for instance, health insurance co's buying up all your DNA info to deny you coverage etc.

Starbug [from CCC] was able to demonstrate that a good digital camera with 200mm-lens at a distance of up to five meters is sufficient to capture suitably good pictures to fool iris recognition systems.

.../... the iris picture is printed on a laser printer. .../... a normal contact lens is placed on top of the print. This successfully fools the iris recognition system into acting as though the real eye were in front of the camera.

On May 6, 9, 20, and then early in the morning today (May 23), the VPS running this instance (scholar.social) has gone down, with the host citing an "extreme amount of disk IO."

It's only happened 4 times since I started up, and I haven't thought through very clearly how to diagnose the problem.

Before I start going too crazy, are any other mastodon admins also having this problem?

Thanks!

@phessler As your attorney, I advise you to take a hit out of the little brown bottle in my shaving kit.

Anybody else going to see Amanda Palmer in concert tonight?

@oneiro It's funny that you mention that... my constructs have been my allies for a few years now.

👿 witches what are some things that make you excited for the future of 'technology'?

i'm doing a lil "technology isn't scary actually it's terrifying let's make some art" workshop (basic frame: tech is about LEGIBILITY and CONTROL and let's make it about POTLUCKS and WITCHCRAFT) for highschool students and am looking for things to point them towards~

@oneiro Cheap and easy to get hold of personal computers. I'm a technomancer, so this means even more ally spirits to work with.

Programming as will-working.
