  • I really need something like a USB C to C cable that when you plug it in to any two devices, on both devices immediately a file explorer opens up to copy files to and from both devices. That would save so many headaches and time.

    Amen.
    There are some proprietary solutions, and devices with OTG can attempt to do it, but there's nothing universal.

    Okay, only one PC controls the stuff, but has bidirectional access to everything.

    Was fun to use.
    ChatGPT is scary, I watched this video and as a developer this makes me feel nervous about the future of my work.
    I realize for more complex things it can fail with regards to code, but looking at how quick ChatGPT got released in this state, how can we not expect it to be on par with experts in the future?

    Nvidia Broadcast's look at the camera AI is scary. I would use it in uni but the only problem is looking away and back has a very robot-like eye movement.

    Mind is such an illusion, you look back into the past and it can compress a year into feeling like it flew by like in a month even though if you think about it, you know you experienced a day each. Something so common I see is people thinking their childhood was great but really it was pretty normal, the present is probably worse in comparison so it looks great.

    Commendable wisdom, unusual for your young age. The mind is illusion: whether it remembers the past, anticipates the future, selects certain moments and enriches the simple fact and twists it, with subjective desires or fears. The past is never better, the future neither: totally immersed in the here and now: only that is real, the rest is daydreaming. 😑

    I'm building like an AIO video downloader / player app for Android and possibly iOS. But I wonder, is there any way to allow downloading videos from YouTube, or would I be in legal trouble? Are there workarounds, or is just allowing to play a video from an extracted URL fine if I don't provide a download option?

    If we use NewPipe as a case study, it looks like they were allowed on the Play Store provided that version does not allow downloading of videos, it can only stream. Not sure if other compromises were made.

    As far as legal concerns go outside of just Play policy, youtube-dl is still around even after some tried to take it down, so there must be some justification? Would recommend looking into that case

    Subscription plans are great for Buddhists, you don't truly own anything in life and you don't get to take anything to your grave anyway. So it's just a free discount.

    PowerToys is awesome.
    Something I always do when I get a new gadget, I don't plug the charger into the device, I turn on the charger first on its own. If it somehow blows up, nothing happens to the device. 😬
    Might be a good idea to buy a RP2040-Zero just in case, almost certain prices are going to go up a lot due to demand.

    With all the new Machine Learning models to generate fake images, the whole influx of demands to be "opt-out" of models and "noai" labels to hosted images is honestly immensely stupid. You can't be serious if you're telling me people with malicious intent will respect your wishes not to be included in their AI tool.

    Yeah I was more talking about the use in the art world. I wasn't realizing you were talking in the context of deepfake, which iirc deepfake software ignores the tags even today

    Indeed, someone made a good point saying even if society starts being sceptical of images outright, it still can be damaging to one's reputation, proven false later or not.

    Kinda off topic, but when I get a better PC, I wanna mess around with trying to make an AI model of my voice, I think being able to dub stuff in foreign languages with my own voice would be sick

    More people should really learn Notepad++'s features. Especially just the basic Replace function, it saves so much editing time for anything.

    Extended find/replace is such a lifesaver for inserting something at the beginning or end of every line. I use it all the time.

    It is even more powerful if you use regular expressions. Search and replace with regular expressions is one of these things pay back big if your learn it.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    The scenario in question is to do disk erases on some storage servers at my job that have I think 12x 14TB spinners, SATA SSDs, and nvme disks. The process I'm using to erase the spinners is to kick off an ATA Security Erase in the disk's firmware, then once that's done do a dd zero-fill as a second pass.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    These spinners take like 22h per each of those operations
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I'll admit sometimes it takes me longer to write and debug a script that will do that for me, than it would take me to make the changes manually, but this is more fun.
    +1
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    And running it over a serial console I'd either have to spin up a dozen and a half screen sessions or just run one operation at a time
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Wrote a horrifyingly long one-liner to do all of that - spin up a shitload of screen sessions, run these commands to it, pipe output to kmsg so it shows up in the default tty's shell, and some other shit on top of that.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Can't you run pssh?
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Some day I'll write out a properly formatted shell script that lives on our firmware server or git repo and just call that, and have that handle every kind of server we run much more gracefully than my hobbled together atrocity does right now
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    pssh - nope. 1, what I'm doing gets done from our bootable provisioning environment, and you can only interface with that via serial console - we don't accept ssh connections on the servers in that state, and 2, I don't even know if our bootable environment has pssh baked into it
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    3, I've never even heard of it before lol
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Anyway I can open serial console sessions to multiple devices at the same time, and broadcast my input to all of them (iTerm on Mac is the terminal emulator I'm using). It's just a matter of how many commands I'd have to run by hand, and how long they'd take otherwise lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I just assumed you were working via SSH. I know my way around that. If a server is only accessible locally it's waaay beyond saving from my end so I let the DC team work on that :tpi:
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I *am* the DC team :P the remote arm of it, anyway
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Trust me, I wish I could do everything I need to do via ssh. Working through these serial console servers suuuuuucks in comparison

    I love that there's a network filesystem that runs on top of ssh - sshfs
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I use it in most of my home network for mounting network storage in various *nix VMs
  • Veho @ Veho:
    sshfs you say...
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I use SFTP but it doesn't have the bells and whistles.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Dumb dx11 and lutris
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    sshfs allows you to mount networked storage on a machine as a FUSE filesystem. It's sftp under the hood but has all of the interactivity and usability you'd expect of a locally mounted filesystem. Downside, it can slow down a little bit with massive directories, but I haven't personally run into that yet
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    This perspective is all linux oriented fwiw. I believe there's an sshfs driver for Windows, but I haven't used it yet. and no idea for MacOS

    By the way under Windows you can use Total Commander to access so many sources as drives, SFTP, FTP, WebDav, Cloud shares, etc.
