The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.

I was going to toot about how I'm a fool for not making more notes, after I had a great idea for what could become a dystopian story (because the world needs more of those ;-) /s ) but had entirely forgotten it due to not taking notes.

The process of typing that toot brought the idea back into my head, so lucky escape there.

Moral of the story: No need to take notes, just type a toot about forgetting a thing ;-)

I guess I have my answer to the question of does the phonetrack-android app for nextcloud treat the minimum distance and time as AND or OR...
That feels like it needs to be smarter, although starting to contemplate how that would be coded makes my head hurt...

ok, step one was easy. takeout.google.com/settings/ta then select only location history, and change file format to kml format.
Once that's done, I'll see how well my nextcloud install copes with a 170MB kml file...

Finally got around to setting up phonetrack on my new nextcloud install. I like it.
Now, I wonder if I can export all of my google location history and import it to my device...

wow, this is a new one

if you need my “personal data” to pay your staff then you need to find a more ethical fucking business model

Didn't check the backup of my OwnCloud directory before nuking my server.
_Of course_ the backup was poked, and less than half of it is good.
On the other hand, there's also google photos and amazon prime photos, so I'm not overly sad that I didn't check my rsync.
I should probably check those other two backups though...

In so much (cyberpunk?) media from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, the hero is a journalist.

Journalism, was seen as the ultimate tool against despots.

(Think Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future, or Transmetropolitan, Makers (and many of the rest of Doctorow's books) or even Futureworld.)

And VCs + Facebook have effectively crippled modern journalism. Destroyed most local journalism. Rendered the pursuit of truth an optional side project for the left, and incompatible with the right.

It appears that an N36L hp microserver might not be enough server for running Plex media server, which has sent me down a "new server" rabbit hole.
It appears that what I would like (micro itx, AM4 socket for a Ryzen CPU, and an esata port for using my existing external box o'hdds) is not what anyone else would like, based on available motherboards...

I absolutely had intended to be good, and play through my current nintendo switch games before buying any more, but then I discovered Aaero, and then...

I rebuilt my home server this week and switched from Kodi to Plex for my home media needs.
Creating optimised versions of files might not be an ideal task for my N36L microserver...

In the process of rebuilding my home server (well, one of them, shh, I know...) I decided to have a look at plex media server.

I guess a plex pass is now going to be my christmas gift to myself ;-)

More testing of neural networks is happening! Now with added asymmetrical objects! :P

btw the only reason tumblr is removing porn is because apple blocked their app for nsfw content. if you were still on the fence about whether or not walled gardens have a negative effect on free speech

Oh my, PocketCHIP friends look at this DIY PChip replacement. They are using a Pi 3B+ and the pimoroni Hyperpixel display plus a diy keyboard and 3D printed case.

This morning's cycle to work has pushed me over the edge, it's time to get cameras set up on my bike again.
Too many idiots on the road, so it's "self-righteous prick" time ;-)
