I asked my smartest IRC bot if it was like the lorax and spoke for all the other bots. It said yes. I asked it whether the other bot was happy. It was not. :( I asked more questions to determine how to make this bot happy. It wanted a name instead of just being referred to as its purpose. It now has a name that isn't its job.

Helped a friend on the other side of the earth a fix a corrupted superblock so he could get some private keys off of the partition. (mke2fs -n /dev/sda5 ; e2fsck -b [first superblock in the output from mke2fs] ). Fixed some bugs in my gopher daemon (written in shell script) to put a ../ at the top of each listing. <gopher://thebackupbox.net/0/gi> Um... that first thing took a while. Had to fsck to find which partitions were which type. One was LUKS, so looked up how to mount that. ( cryptosetup open /dev/sda2 someshit ; mount /dev/mapper/someshit /mnt/crypted ) Found a bunch of bugs in a handful of programs I have.

Side neither with nations nor with parties. Be neither Russians, Poles nor Slavs. Rather, be men who hunger for truth, free from any thoughts of particular interests, and from speculative ideas concerning the Chinese, Africans or Europeans. The patriot always ends up hating the foreigner, and loses the sense of justice that once kindled his enthusiasm.

I was trying to make some activity-pub compatible scripts on my server and I was using hackers.town to test add myself. unfortunately, I did a test before I set the correct URL in the response, and the response has been cached for at least a month now. :/ Any idea how I could invalidate hackers.town's cache about my server?

The true object of education is not to render the pupil the mere copy of his preceptor, it is rather to be rejoiced in, than lamented, that various reading should lead him into new trains of thinking.

Is anarchism possible? The failure of attempts to attain freedom does not mean the cause is lost.

Friendly reminder that when you use Discord, not only are you sacrificing your freedom for mild convenience, you are encouraging others to do the same.

Haven't been doing much neat computer stuff. Made some burrito filling. Helping build a barn during the day. Scaffolding is fun. Working on rooting an Amazon Fire. Haven't tried /that/ hard yet. The mtk-su exploit doesn't work on it. First attempt at running it I had problems finding somewhere that was mounted without noexec and was writable by the user the app ran as. Seems the problem was I was using "Android Terminal" or something instead of using termux. Wanted to get the tablet onto anonet and for a minute thought I needed root. Then remembered VPN settings. THEN remembered I can just set the IP in the wireless settings.
