I have seen far too many artists gone on hold for unknown periods of time because their sole computer is a laptop.
Seriously, people, most laptops are not made to last, unfortunately. If you need reliable access to computing power, you really need a desktop. Modular, upgradeable, easy to repair by yourself, or the local techie.
With the immense help of all our donors and as well as patrons from our Patreon, we've been able to add a brand new dedicated storage server to our lineup of assets!
Spent the afternoon setting up my first VPS running Ubuntu 18,04 LTS set up SSH disabled root login enabled public/private key login with a really long password to escalate the login account to su. This is a bit of a playground for me, I have been using linux on the desktop and on my servers for the last 10 years or more so it is not new ground on the OS front just need to work out what to do with it...
I'm fucking mad over this shit, as I'm heavily immunosuppressed due to the medicine I must take for my disabilities.
Anti-vaxxers should be ASHAMED of themselves. They are not only causing great harm to their children but to others also. I definitely did not need to see this :(
About the "security issue" on #VLC : VLC is not vulnerable.
tl;dr: the issue is in a 3rd party library, called libebml, which was fixed more than 16 months ago.
VLC since version 3.0.3 has the correct version shipped, and @MITREcorp@twitter.com did not even check their claim.
@hiddensoul Ham radio for sure! These are probably the only remaining area of customer electronics which is not designed with a "DO NOT SERVICE" mindset...
So I am training my fish, I have already got them trained that when I tap the top cover and open it they come uo for food now just before that I am setting the colour changing lights Green. I am ONLY using green for feeding time not for mood effects, that hope is that in a few weeks they will associate green with food
A more literal example, I literally do gardening for a living. I get paid $15/hr to pull weeds while listening to podcasts all day, because rich people hate being outside and touching dirt. This shit is not that hard. Any dumbfuck with enough fingers left to hold a shovel can do it. And yet I am still paid what is, to me, a comparatively stupid amount of money, because rich people spend cash like they breathe air.
I hack with the battery in...
I am not a coder I am a hack, I am more into the hardware side of things and see software and coding as a necessary evil.
