OK, watching my YouTube subscriptions via RSS (web feeds) is something I never thought I'd want.

Now I can't live without it.

In @Thunderbird, the videos in my list auto-play when clicked. I can delete it (like an email) when I'm done or if I'm just not into it, and the next one auto-plays.

They're searchable, I can apply filters, I can make my OWN "playlists" by using subfolders, etc.


Always the same problem: the temperature fuse is blown.

My guess: dust enters the bushings and gets trapped with the oil. The oils begins to heat and burns, causing friction in the shaft. Then the coil begins to heat as more current is needed to keep the fan spinning which eventually causes the fuse to blow.

Not sure if ball bearings would fix the problem.

What's the longest you've used a single smart phone? (Boost for a broader data pool.)

A fully parametric stool in .

I would need to 3D mesh it and run some stress tests before I’m confident the joints won’t break.

It feels like this should/could be a solved problem: reading & syncing my rss feeds on multiple devices, bookmarks across those devices, etc..
Any pointers (preferably #foss and self-hostable)?

I was thinking wether it was possible to automatically discover the dependencies of a program.

Begin with no dependencies in a chroot/mount namespace and then iteratively add more as the build process fails (I’m thinking GNU autotools).

A database of path to package is needed, and there are ofc multiple options for each path, but having a default policy may be able to select the reasonable packages by default.

I may try to experiment with it using or

More fun publisher surveillance:
Elsevier embeds a hash in the PDF metadata that is *unique for each time a PDF is downloaded*, this is a diff between metadata from two of the same paper. Combined with access timestamps, they can uniquely identify the source of any shared PDFs.

Cannot reproduce with curl by setting the same http headers. Both TLS exchange look fine.

Seems related:

I found the linked repo “Unavailable For Legal Reasons” in codeberg. A copy is available in the git server. Do you have more info about the “legal reasons” ?

Not sure what is dillo doing wrong here; w3m and curl work fine.

Signal created targeted ads for Instagram that show the personal data that Facebook collects about you and sells access to.

They were blocked.
