The common can survive without your help.

The obscure needs you.

The horror of an era replete with magic (technology) is that your choices matter. You can lose your life in here, gazing blankly into a whispering void. Or you can seize great power... wisdom of ages at your finger tips, should you know the correct incantations (search strings) to seek it. But noone will rescue you from the former, should you get distracted in your quest for the latter.

I'm not leaving the net. But I am leaving the UI.

At least for a time, hopefully permanently. Enough is enough. I know timeline is a dark pattern for me. I know better than to allow dark patterns to soak up my time.

"The app" is the lie they had to sell us - that for us to receive information, we had to run their code and see what they wanted us to see in the order they wanted us to see it in. I reject the app model.

I will emerge my crystal towers of knowledge above bitstream fields of data. I will do it on my own terms. There is no efficiency in succumbing.

Ftr, this account does not willfully discriminate against partially or wholely synthetic intelligences.

Is there an AI tool thing where I can upload a picture and it identifies the contents and a degree of certainty. Like, the kind of output I want is a scale from how much it thinks the image is a human to how much it thinks the image is a dog.

Also, I need to be able to ask this a lot of times with potentially very similar pictures.

Interested in #Suros, my #Elisp webserver that's meant to be activitypub compliant? I've set up a matrix channel for talking about it:

#suros:matrix.org

(unfamiliar? It's an #ActivityPub and #IndieWeb focused personal webserver for serving up data from your #Emacs client, like #OrgMode files)

At any moment we could be reduced to sneakernets again.

always remember this.

mind, the entire emacs documentation could use a change of century...

'kill' for 'cut to clipboard' and 'yank' for 'paste' has only grown more preposterous.

You know who's got it's-all-IRC-guy beat? The one using emacs as their IRC client...

From Ye Olde Teknologikal Magicks Folio, have a gander at the glory of HMSL, the Hierarchical Music Specification Language, an object-oriented extension to #forth used for experimental music in the 1980s and 1990s:

To be fair, the emacs experience has improved a lot since I last encountered it. But that was 20 years ago, so I should hope so! (Vim hasn't. )

Does anyone have experience setting up VoIP using a SIP trunk provider and a software PBX like Asterisk for your home phone? I'm considering doing this instead of just doing VoIP through whatever ISP I coose (most likely AT&T) but I want to hear from people who have done it. I have 3 questions about it:

1. How difficult was it to set up?
2. What did you learn from doing so?
3. Do you think it was worth it and if so, why?

Next in bad ideas: The emacs phone. It doesn't even run irssi. Why would you need to leave emacs? ;)

US pol, *EVERYONE* in the US needs to know 

Rising CO2 and temperatures like they are, we might want to distrust our collective intelligence as well.

The generation of leaded paint and gasoline are still with us. Maybe distrust of their collective intelligence isn't unwarranted.
