FreeBSD 11.2 on the One Mix Yoga

Got a One Mix Yoga and I've thrown FreeBSD 11.2 on it. I've been really pleased with it. Sound and touch screen does not work, but wireless and the mouse does so it all good.

Also I am really pleased with the performance of the scfb X driver.

Been reconning my new One Mix Yoga via Xubuntu 18.04 for getting FreeBSD on it. One thing has really stood out to me and that is how fucking little software is available in Ubuntu.

Also was Pocket Pussy already taken for a release name?

One Mix Yoga, got one coming and am going to be trying FreeBSD out on it. Looking forward to it.

Should be interesting, given its very low power proc and small size.

I definitely suggest checking it out. It works fairly nicely. Just finished setting up my own personal instance here.

For those not familiar with it, it is a meta search engine that searches other search engines and anonymizes your searches.

When it comes to the GDFPR, I find it curious how people constantly overlook it does nothing to shutdown the bad actors. Just creates some fines the large companies can pay, requires them to rewrite their software, and add a few additional bits to their EULAs so it can be business as usual.

The fact it did not outlaw the sort of datamining Google and Facebook does and adds in toeknized pseudonymisation is all one needs to see it is a joke. Sure, you can ask them to delete the mapping key, but that is pointless with the amount of data being gathered as it will quickly be regenerated.

Crony capitalism at its finest. Allows large companies to be pieces of shit while helping lock out smaller ones.

It utterly ignores what it is trying to regulate is a market that needs to flat out die.

Watching people try to defend WebUSB is painful and cringe worthy.

On a similar note it is curious to watch people deny the massive holes in the GDPR.

Red Shell Spyware

Been interesting to look at how the mods on various subreddits have been burying it. On the popular gaming subreddits there are no pinned posts about it, despite the level of scandal, notability, and the like of it.

Shadowrun

Really need find a game. Been way to long.

Really need to see about getting a game going on like Wednesday or Thursday night.

interesting...

https://github.com/git-federation/gitpub

Started following that a bit.

Interesting idea and I like the basic idea. Although if that group produces anything, I'll be surprised.

What started out as federated pull requests has devolved into attempting to build a federated ticketing system by a group of people who are paranoid as fuck to the point of being crippled by it and clearly don't have much experience working with ticketing systems.

The Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security have said they need more power to stop drone threats to government facilities. A new bill in Congress gives them too much.

Woot! Gallery updated...

Finally got around to re-rendering it.

Also pondering Toader2 and what I've learned from writing the original one. It and the ZConf stuff are something I've really run out of energy to work on. Both have major issues that need fixing. ZConf though was definitely a interesting experiment even though I never had the chance to push it to its full potential.

Pondering basing the a new one around Text::MultiMarkdown and making it more sorta Githubish.

Some thoughts on Microsft buying Github...

I am less than worried.

The major company to worry about that constantly gets a pass is Google. On top of that when it comes to companies shit for open source I'll throw Red Hat in there as well. Both of them have done more to seriously fuck the open source community in the last decade than Microsoft has...

Wayland, systemd, constant use of embrace and extend, the fuckery that is Android, killing XMPP, killing CalDAV, and a whole host of other issues...
