#introduction Hello, Fediverse! My name is Brandon. I have been blogging since 2008. I write about productivity, technology, books, religion, coffee and tea, and Texas. I joined Mastodon to share my work and learn from other writers, but also to escape Twitter, which has proven to be useful for neither of these things. You can find my blog at brandonsnotepad.wordpress.com.

For example, I can connect to freenode.proxy.localhost[127.2.0.1], which is tunneled through freenode’s Tor services (thanks @kline​) via `socat`, started on-demand with `ip2unix` and `systemd`. To `irssi`, it’s just a local IRC server with TLS—no proxy support needed.

Web Browser Add-Ons to boost your productivity

I'm using Mozilla Firefox as my primary web browser, this is the application where I spend a large portion of my working day on.

While it comes with a nice set of features out of the box and is under constant development, there's also a great ecosystem of add-ons and extensions that make my daily

Dit is al de >1'e keer dat mijn telefoon echt volledig unresponsive is (behalve dat d emuziek wel vrolijk doorspeelt) als Spotify zijn ding aan het doen is. Ik ben benieuwd of dat aan Spotify ligt, of aan de laatste update van OxygenOS die ik van OnePlus heb gehad. Ik kan geen van beiden uitsluiten.

What Family of Linux do you run?

Apparently, a similar “share button” for Mastodon did exist before it got removed again (github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/). It’s Mastodon’s decentralized nature that makes things so complicated: there simply isn’t a single URL to point to. That said, there seems to be this alternative JS library (aly-ve.github.io/Mastodon-shar) that may just work.

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

The stuff being done with GPT-3 and OpenAI is honestly one of the biggest mindfucks I've ever come across.

I'm listening to OpenAI JukeBox try to finish segments of song samples...and while a lot of it is flawed, a lot of it sounds like creative output to me.

A guy just did an interview with GPT-3 via API calls and rendered the responses through another AI renderer to capture the responses in a video, and it makes for a very believable set of interactions.
