Hey all! I’ve been working hard to get the #Podcast up and running. I think I’m FINALLY at a point where I’m ready to go.

The first episode is already live and ready for you. It’s a little old now, due to setup, but it’s definitely still relevant!

Did you know @awai (the founder of @mobian) plays Guitar, and has album called “Dirty Greed” up on band camp? Neither did I! The sound is hella tight. Links are in the video description and on the Podcast Homepage.

The Podcast #video is available here: https://media.kaitaia.life/w/2waGiHKoqD7Jmg3Nw3Vq81

The Podcast #Homepage is: https://pebkac.show

You can find the #RSS feeds for #MP3; #AAC; #OGG; #FLAC and #Opus are all listed clearly on the main page.

If you just want to skip all the hassle, you can grab the MP3 feed here: https://pebkac.show/web/feed/mp3/

A huge shoutout and thank you, goes out to @awai, for giving me some of his precious time for an interview. Also, @linmob for helping me decide on direction, and giving some sound advice along the way.

I’d really love to hear what you think, and let me know if there’s anything you think I could do to make it better!

Thanks so much!

PS. Please forgive the ping and hashtag stuffing! After this post, I’ll never do it again (unless someone wants me too 😉)

"Fast Fashion Is Hot Garbage" by Climate Town youtube.com/watch?v=F6R_WTDdx7

Main points:

- people in privileged economies buy way more clothes, beyond luxury

- donated clothes often go to garbage piles

- "recycled" clothes aren't, just like "recycled" plastics, they go to garbage piles

- every aspect of industrialised fashion releases CO2 and consumes water in astronomic amounts

- it's based on practically slave labour

- make the most use of what you have, don't buy, deindustrialise, decolonise

Does anyone have any good learning resources for hand-writing parsers without things like yacc and lex?

I'm trying to decide if I want to do a round of browser dating and check out Brave and/or Vivaldi again or just stick with Firefox.

@NeonPurpleStar

yesterday i learned about a firefox advanced preference called "privacy.firstparty.isolate" which is supposed to block any domains that aren't the same as the one you're directly visiting.

i think that's a pretty good answer to a lot of tracking, although i haven't tested if it works.

@NeonPurpleStar

well, there's a lot to consider.

1. do you want to support sites that don't respect users' privacy by visiting them?

2. websites can track users' ip addresses, which extensions can't cover. only a vpn or tor can.

3. if someone wanted to have a tracker free experience on the web, shouldn't they be able to have that?

4. most privacy extensions rely on blocklists to block trackers, which, like antivirus software, can't block new trackers.

5. lots more stuff, i'm sure.

if only there was a way to search only for privacy respecting websites on the normal http web... i bet there is... somewhere out there. #privacy

Amazon Ad: That's a low price!

Amazon reality: That's not a low price for poorly made shit from China. That's not a low price for out-of-print CDs. That's not a low price for delivery.

Techies of #linux some advice/direction with permissions:

I want to #darktable to organize my photos. For this, it needs to access my files on my synology.

#ssh connection: fine.
sshfs connection: fine, can mount.

Darktable still complains about access on the mounted folder. It also complains about access on my other internal hard drive (mounted in my fstab, no issues otherwise).

I'm thinking the user Darktable runs as doesn't have access? but top shows me as the user.

What gives?

lmao, this guy did a test to see if "google was listening" by talking about dog toys in front of his computer, and then he went on some random websites are there were dog toy ads.

i think it's probably coincidence. hbu?

"Does the Brave Browser Really Beat Fingerprinting? Let's Test!"

yewtu.be/watch?v=dsu9b5FqK_0

(This test is from almost exactly one year ago)

He tests Brave with a tracking program that he made and sees that Brave changes the hash of its fingerprint every time it's restarted. Other mainstream browsers didn't.
