Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.

#DeleteChrome
Quote from the linked article:<br><br>Today, Google launched an “origin trial” of Federated Learning of Cohorts (aka FLoC), its experimental new technology for targeting ads. A switch has silently been flipped in millions of instances of Google Chrome: those browsers will begin sorting their users into groups based on behavior, then sharing group labels with third-party trackers and advertisers around the web. A random set of users have been selected for the trial, and they can currently only opt out by disabling third-party cookies.

Sarebbe fico fare un bot con i valori delle altezze idrometriche del lago
https://laghi.net/homepage.aspx?tab=3&subtab=2&idlago=1
E chi lo sa fare? Io no... Magari @valhalla oppure qualcun altro
esiste un RSS di queste altezze da qualche parte?
troppo facile :)
va bene, ma se dovessi scrivere un bot da dove prenderei i dati?
scraping?
di cosa?
boh, forse? ma raise TooManyProjectsError, sorry

però sì, sarebbe figo se qualcun'altro lo facesse :)

So today I took my time to read SQLite docs about window functions and changed 3 queries (written copy&past-ing without really understand) which took almost 3 seconds to run, to one query which runs in 0.1 seconds.. nice :)




"Lazy afternoon"
Result of an afternoon of playing with Blender.
Models by me following techniques from Ian Hubert's Lazy Tutorials, except the two plants and pots, which I found on Blend Swap
Textures from Ikea catalog, except for the floor, which comes from an image search, and the two comics (by Leo Ortolani)

experiment of the day:
https://git.sr.ht/~fabrixxm/zint-vapi

Vala bindings for Zint barcode generator library , with a simple Gtk UI to generate barcodes

How did you know I need this! ?

My meagre attemt is here:

https://gitlab.com/sspaeth/speedticket/-/blob/master/vapi/zint.vapi
and also, can it get a Gtk.Image somehow? I was able to a) either save it to a file or retrieve an in-memory bitmap which could not be easily squeezed into a Gtk.Image.

Going to check it out.
You can load the bitmap into a Gdk.PixBuf, then you can do whatever.
https://git.sr.ht/~fabrixxm/zint-vapi/tree/master/item/test/example_3.vala

I wanted to have the bitmap field as uint8[], mostly because looks vala-y and because it's what is in Gdk.PixBuf.from_data()'s signature).
I found that it needs a length to works with Gdk.PixBuf.from_data(), so I added the get_bitmap() method to set the length.. It works but I don't know if it's the correct solution... there so much things I'm not sure about and docs are useful only up to a point...

(as a side node, the zint.h header I have on disk has a bitmap_byte_length field which would be so good to use as length value for bitmap (setting it directly in field's annotation in vapi) but looks like is not used and docs doesn't mention it.....)
YOU ARE THE HERO OF MY DAY!

Oh for Vala's sake! I spent a day on this (vala is not a language I really know) and now there are already at least two vapi files ready 😃

Linux distributions in a nutshell
Have to wait for Fedora to develop it, Arch to document it and Debian to package it. Only then can Ubuntu market it.

#TIL there are #ZIM files for entire #WikiBooks collections as well. This is the English language collection, for example:

That's a 4.6 GB download (just over a few HD movies) for 3100 books, free for use and available offline for reading in your phone or computer, anytime.

Vidi una volta un paesaggio simile attraversando in auto il Chott el Jerid, da Tozeur a Kebili (un rettilineo di 80 km), dopo una giornata di pioggia.
Praticamente vedevi solo la strada e non c'era alcun orizzonte: impressionante!

Ok, I just found that one of my favorite band from Jamendo not only has released a new album last year, after 13 years (!), but they are also on the fediverse @pornophonique
We’re glad that you found us even in this little corner of the internet. It’s cozy here. But hope to see you live on tour someday – stay strong!
