@abucci

I don’t want to see AI-generated text anymore, that ship has sailed.

Oh boy, you are in for a rude awakening! This is just getting started. 😬

@prologic @mckinley I’m all for playing around, but for what it’s worth I’ve blocked ChatGPT bots and filtered that keyword in other contexts because so many freakin people are generating stuff and posting it online that I’ve grown tired of it. I don’t want to see AI-generated text anymore, that ship has sailed.

@prologic actually, Telegram approach for bots is pretty good, you can handle them in two ways:

  • Fetch new posts and handle them in batch with scheduled loops or with long pooling
  • Register a webhook and handle a POST endpoint and do what you want in it, this for everything posts separately

For Yarn the rest can be done with the existing API on a special bot user.

Second day of being sick. Mostly chills, minor aches, and a slight dry cough. Typical flu stuff. I did slightly burn my tongue and lips last night when I was climbing some stairs in the dark and accidentally took a big gulp of hot lemon water rather than a sip and then compounded my mistake by resisting the urge to spit it all out.

@prologic I’ll have a look, but I can’t claim that I’m an expert in that field, either. 😅

In-reply-to » I finally gave up following Ars Technica. For awhile I enjoyed their tech news because they seemed to dig into stories a little more than other outlets.

@abucci I’ve toyed with the idea of having some kind of “user-defined logic” that can be applied to feeds from external sources. Wondering whether there’s any interest in this type of thing? 🤔

@prologic but why? What about “This is my first, rather experimental, post.” is so enticing, that “quite a few folks” have to immediately follow feeds? 🤯

@prologic Pretty sure I was, and I may have been the one to create it. Anyway, not anymore.

@justamoment No I haven’t seen such a bot yet… But I have come up with ways one can be developed. It would mostly reuse some of the code that yarnd users, but you’d want to build a sort-of “bot framework” if you will 👌

@prologic then have you seen a bot here on Yarn.social?

How would someone use something like that in a meaningful way here?

Oh man 🤦‍♂️ Advent of Code. I’ve done it two years in a row, but this year I just can’t seem to musty up enough energy and “spare time”. New job, blah, something else, blah 😅 Maybe next year and I’ll probably do what you’ve done @movq – My own pace 👌

I left (almost) all private leaderboards and I’m just doing this on my own terms now, after work. It’s much more enjoyable this way. I don’t have to get up early and I have something to look forward to throughout the day. 👌

@prologic about bots, I’ve never really seen something that I can describe as a bot by now, what would be an example of bot to you?

In my mind it’s something that act like reddit bots or something you mention and reply somehow.

For anything else it’s just a feed to me. 🤔

In-reply-to » TIL: Argon2 is a newer modern password hashing algorithm 😅

@prologic I read it in the German wikipedia article. Search for “currenc” in the author’s internet draft:

Argon2d uses data-dependent memory access, which makes it suitable for cryptocurrencies and proof-of-work applications with no threats from side-channel timing attacks.

https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/draft-irtf-cfrg-argon2-03#section-1

And:

These settings are more typical for backend servers and cryptocurrency minings. For practice we suggest the following settings:

  • Cryptocurrency mining, that takes 0.1 seconds on a 2 Ghz CPU using 1 core – Argon2d with 2 lanes and 250 MB of RAM.

https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/draft-irtf-cfrg-argon2-03#section-4

In the wikipedia article I read it more like a recommendation, but the original sounds in fact not that bad. Still, to me, that is not confidence-inspiring. I did not read the entire article, just quoted out of context. :-)

@prologic thank you. Let’s see how it goes. I am just trying to make the other issue come afloat.
