Le saviez vous ? En réalité, la lune grossit seulement de 15%. L impression de grosseur de la lune lorsqu'elle est basse est, en fait, une illusion d'optique. Pour s'en assurer, vous pouvez faire l'expérience suivante : tendez le bras pouce en l'air (comme un peintre), fermez un œil, et comparez le diamètre de la lune avec la taille de votre pouce. Répétez l'expérience à plusieurs moment dans la nuit. Vous vous apercevrez que la taille de la lune est toujours plus ou moins la même.

I really wish people would stop using Cloudflare for their sites. I’m getting more and more frequently blocked from sites (literally getting 403 Forbidden pages) apparently because I’m running OpenBSD. I can fire up the exact same browser (Firefox 99.0) on any other OS or computer in my home, with the exact same preferences/config (AFAIK) and browse the exact same content just fine. 🤔 shit’s getting old.

If you have VHS tapes sitting around with recorded TV shows from channels that had Teletext, there's a good chance that you have Teletext signals stored along with the show! Video recorders used to just dump the entire broadcast signal into tape, including the invisible part.

You can get to this data with these tools: github.com/ali1234/vhs-teletex

#NextCloud CEO and founder Frank Karlitschek was approached by a #Microsoft lawyer earlier this year to make a deal.

In the meeting, the Microsoft correspondent offered benefits in the form of collaboration and marketing to Nextcloud. For example, they wanted to promote the Nextcloud logo in Microsoft marketing material – if Nextcloud would consider dropping its anti-trust complaint.

Microsoft used to be a company of jerks, liars and cheaters 40 years ago, it remains a company of jerks, liars and cheaters today.


Dear fellow sysadmins, I am in the process of integrating #nut support in #riemann-tools to monitor UPS [1]. I guess each UPS / driver provide slightly different data, and I have access to a limited number of devices. If you can send me what upsc(1) reports for you (`upsc ups-name@ip`), it will help having better support! Send them with links to gist or an e-mail.

Retoot appreciated!

If we called it “applied statistics” instead of “machine learning” or “artificial intelligence” we’d probably get fewer people asking if the computer is alive.

So, here it is: a first public draft of our “cheat sheet” designed to give to students as a small gift when they complete a training. It will be printed on thick A3 paper.


I’ll [gladly] hear your complaints. ;)

This was predictable. Facebook/Meta is now encrypting the QP data so that Firefox and other privacy conscious browsers that strip the tracking data can't. Only way to avoid it is to not use Facebook at all. #DeleteFacebook #SurveillanceCapitalism www.ghacks.net/2022/07/17/face…
