Hey folks. In honor of the Great Invidious Purge affecting most (if not all) instances I will be starting up my own Invidious instance.

"You can stop me, but you can't stop us all... After all, we're all alike."

Fuck you, Google.

Yours truly,
Jane Doe

The sandsifter audits x86 processors for hidden instructions and hardware bugs, by systematically generating machine code to search through a processor's instruction set, and monitoring execution for anomalies. Sandsifter has uncovered secret processor instructions from every major vendor; ubiquitous software bugs in disassemblers, assemblers, and emulators; flaws in enterprise hypervisors; and both benign and security-critical hardware bugs in x86 chips.

With the multitude of x86 processors in existence, the goal of the tool is to enable users to check their own systems for hidden instructions and bugs.

I feel like a lot of people who are used to using proprietary software for everything just... don't understand how powerful their computers are or how much they could do with them if they weren't restrained to the well-known proprietary tools that get advertised more than better free tools.

People are understandably upset about #Microsoft removing the option to not sign in into their cloud if you' happen to install #Windows while connected to the internet, but sadly and somewhat predictably, I see a lot of commenters making excuses for why they still cannot switch to #Linux, non working WiFI, audio - things not valid for a decade - instead people seem to be looking at #Apple.

#Apple that increasingly relies on services, lets contractors listen in on Siri conversations etc.

Intersting how people who nominally support free software and culture,
feel so strong about being part of the group.
Only message you can hear from them is «Conform or we will make you».
This cycle continues for five-ish years.
Well fuck you. Live and let live.

Stop hating on server software!

nginx is ESSENTIAL
apache is ENTERPRISE
postgres is RELIABLE
docker
ssh is SECURE

Is there anyone who uses Nix or Guix? Really want to hear about experience of it. Only downside (from convenienc persperctive) of guix as far as I see is free only packages.
