Things can get very interesting when we add the iter.Pull function in the mix. It works like pythons yield from.

The range function can signal when to stop running by returning false from the yield function.

I noticed this afternoon that we currently have Carnival vacations this week. So many people outdoors.

I’ve seen three great spotted woodpeckers and heard dozens more hammering the trees. But the photos turned out to be rubbish.

It was very windy at the summit, but I sat on the castle wall and enjoyed the sun beating on me. I would have loved to just relax there half an hour longer, but I had to be back in time. :-(

09 looks like it’s straight from an AI, but the moss was actually on top of a smaller tree. I fell down from a giant moss-covered tree next to it.

Quite cool how much reach the lift’s outriggers have to level it on that steep street.

29-32 show the reason for closing the forest road for one and a half months. A tree fell over and got hung up in the telephone cable in a 45° angle. Only the wire prevented it from crashing down on the road. I find it astonishing that the cable did not rip apart. After all, the tree was quite substantial. No idea why it took them so long to get it removed, though.

The entire meadow in 36 was totally covered with mouse holes. Sick!

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I have that \a in my regular prompt. Any long running command will trigger the terminal bell, which is very handy. 🙂

But … for tea, I have this:

(I love that thing. It’s ancient but it keeps working. And it’s maintenance free, because it’s solar and radio controlled. 👌)

I’ll have to disappoint you, not properly joining the Christmas profile picture thing, for the second year in the row.

This year in fact countering it, with a profile picture wearing sunglasses. Hopefully at least the Australian users, have my back with this one.

Omg! I’m always playing on those pixel placing canvases, where it’s usually an endless war of factions or just things being attacked for no reason, but now someone did the most wholesome thing imaginable and drew another inugami facing mine and drew them shaking paws.

Exactly 10 years ago Kokori’s first release on vinyl was out - and we celebrated with a release party in one of the afternoons of the Entremuralhas festival.
Ten years later, we’re back attending the festival, and this time we see one of the stands selling our latest release, rootkit, on CD! ♡

I hate reading translations. Here’s an example why: the same passage of the English and the Portuguese translation of the same (French) book. Not just the length of the passage shows one of the translations wasn’t faithful, the behavior of the character in one version is the opposite than how he behaves on the other version…

An official FBI document dated January 2021, obtained by the American association “Property of People” through the Freedom of Information Act.

Image

This document summarizes the possibilities for legal access to data from nine instant messaging services: iMessage, Line, Signal, Telegram, Threema, Viber, WeChat, WhatsApp and Wickr. For each software, different judicial methods are explored, such as subpoena, search warrant, active collection of communications metadata (“Pen Register”) or connection data retention law (“18 USC§2703”). Here, in essence, is the information the FBI says it can retrieve:

  • Apple iMessage: basic subscriber data; in the case of an iPhone user, investigators may be able to get their hands on message content if the user uses iCloud to synchronize iMessage messages or to back up data on their phone.

  • Line: account data (image, username, e-mail address, phone number, Line ID, creation date, usage data, etc.); if the user has not activated end-to-end encryption, investigators can retrieve the texts of exchanges over a seven-day period, but not other data (audio, video, images, location).

  • Signal: date and time of account creation and date of last connection.

  • Telegram: IP address and phone number for investigations into confirmed terrorists, otherwise nothing.

  • Threema: cryptographic fingerprint of phone number and e-mail address, push service tokens if used, public key, account creation date, last connection date.

  • Viber: account data and IP address used to create the account; investigators can also access message history (date, time, source, destination).

  • WeChat: basic data such as name, phone number, e-mail and IP address, but only for non-Chinese users.

  • WhatsApp: the targeted person’s basic data, address book and contacts who have the targeted person in their address book; it is possible to collect message metadata in real time (“Pen Register”); message content can be retrieved via iCloud backups.

  • Wickr: Date and time of account creation, types of terminal on which the application is installed, date of last connection, number of messages exchanged, external identifiers associated with the account (e-mail addresses, telephone numbers), avatar image, data linked to adding or deleting.

TL;DR Signal is the messaging system that provides the least information to investigators.

On my way home I went for an enormous detour through the forest to visit the tadpoles pond. There was a dead mole on the middle of the forest road, so I moved this poor little feller to the side.

Image

Later, after a bend I ran across two very beautiful and large deer on the forest path. I immediately stopped and they stood around for 5-10 seconds looking at me before they slowly walked into the forest. Unfortunately, my camera was in the backpack. No chance, lighting would have been brilliant, though.

I just checked on my little mates. It was already too dark for my shitty camera, so please excuse the crappy shots. One slough dried out, so those tadpoles didn’t make it. :-( What a bummer! Especially considering one puddle on the forest path 30 meters further is still going strong. There were very tiny frogs or toads (not sure which) around the big tadpole pond, though. That was super cool to see. I have to come back the next days when the sun is still up.

Opera browser: my final disavowal

While the Internet is being flooded by a record amount of Opera ads, affiliate program members and new hardcore defenders, while I - as someone, who has been using it without a break, for more than 10 years, have had enough and I’ve finally decided to uninstall it.

Part of the reason for this decision, was the new Opera One UI update, that I not only found incredibly ugly and uninspired, but also worsening the already abysmal performance of the browser, as well as adding to the already gigantic pile of bugs within.

All of this, came after a few very frustrating weeks, where the browser constantly crashed, under the weight of its own AI bloat. Every time any text was selected, it was trying to load some ridiculous AI integrations on top, but always crashing and loosing all the opened tabs.
After the UI update, the whole browser somehow felt even more wonky and laggy.

Even for those, who might be fans of the new UI and all the added “features”, that now include a built in generic anime girl game and stupid cartoon noises, upon clicking almost anything, in the “gaming version” of this browser, the growing concerns about this browsers spyware-like connections, to all kinds of mysterious servers, should at least be considered and looked into further. Not to mention the extra problems, that come with them being a Chinese-ran company, storing this data in China.
Quick summary: https://youtu.be/NV8akIgfDqQ

Int the interest of brevity, I won’t go further into the pointless social media arguments they engage in, their past promoting predatory loans, them inserting affiliate links (to the sites you visit through tiles), running a very questionable free VPN service, hidden extensions, that cannot be removed and god knows what else.

Either way Opera, you were an alright browser - many, many years ago. Sadly all I can say now, is “rest in piss, you won’t ever be missed!”.
