I had no work units in the morning, and that was a good thing because I had a chance to disable CPU unit. GPU on its own makes more points than GPU & CPU (~84K vs 66K).

Now finally got one but need computer to work. It will have to run this in the evening.

The first ever video conferencing with jitsi is considered a success. No significant lag or connection weirdness.

Of course google broke something and now I can't upload photos with Firefox. Photos are uploaded flawlessly to chrome.

I guess it's time to ditch google photos. I already backed everything up.

What's up with google photos today? They don't process some of the photos I exported with darktable...

I wrote a blog post on how I use GoAccess to parse server-side logs as a replacement to google analytics.

Pro-tip: If you dress your kids in all green and set up a green-screen they won't disturb your video-call.

I hate Zoom and its stupid requirement for a nonfree plugin in an age when we have webrtc that works just fine.

Never waste a good crisis to teach a math lesson. In this video Grant Sanderson of the 3Blue1Brown channel explains exponential growth and why natural phenomena such as COVID-19 appear to be exponential in nature but are in fact sigmoid curves.

Yet again some US company with which I've had some dealings sends me an email about something, which prompts me to attempt to delete my account, only to discover that I'm IP-blocked, presumably because they don't want to deal with the GDPR. So I can't delete my account, or unsubscribe from emails, or anything, just because they want to track all their visitors without consent.

I just realized the reason Fedi is driving me nuts is because it's the Facebook experience of watching your uncle repost racist conspiracy theories from god-knows-what meme factory, only it's other leftists whose political positions you are basically aligned with, and now you've burned 2 hours trying to untangle primary sources for how the CIA could possibly be construed as responsible for the Unabomber, and...

... yeah, I have gotta unfollow some folks
