My conversations app hasn't been able to connect to the linuxrocks.online XMPP server due to a TLS negotiation failure. Looks like it expired on 2/28 fyi

This is crazy! But I notice a few things that can differentiate between AI generated faces and real ones but they are really subtle.

Eyes, teeth, ears, and the occasional "google dream" like errors in the photo. The errors have that purple/multicolor whisps familiar to google dream images.

The eye's iris sometimes have an odd pattern, ears misshapened, and small errors in the teeth area.

I highly recommend Termux on android. It really enables me when I'm on the go but need to SSH into work to run some quick scripts.

This picture shows me running Termux -> SSH to my laptop at home via OpenVPN -> SSH to work computer via OpenVPN -> Tmux running a Python shell writing/running functions on the fly for QA.

Signal Messenger鈥揊irebase Analytics inside?

Signal had to switch from GCM to FCM, as mentioned in this issue: github.com/signalapp/Signal-An

It was implemented 20 days ago:
github.com/signalapp/Signal-An

However, the AndroidManifest.xml clearly shows that Firebase Analytics is turned off.

This also affects other messengers like Conversations (XMPP), or Riot (Matrix).

Search for "firebase_analytics_collection_deactivated" == "true".

Yay, they're gone! Thank you mods or @indonesianlanguagetranslator@linuxrocks.online for knowing better spamming rando links.

Today Lauri Love is suing the National Crime Agency in court, who appear to be performing a Crime鈩 by refusing to return his computers just because they're encrypted, despite not being investigated for a crime.

Crypto isn't a crime, but stealing people's property is.

This is what I mean. The last photo is of the side roof cavities that I can easily run a fish tape through. Going in the attic and trying to get a line out to the side cavity is, um, lets just say its a headache.

One thing I've been working on recently is installing a security system for my home. I'm going as DIY as possible to avoid vendor lock-in, and allow me to use any IP camera that uses PoE, RTSP, and ONVIF. Using FreeNAS for the storage, and a zoneminder FreeNAS jail for the software.

Also got a cool new PoE extender switch that allows me to run one Cat6 STP line over 802.3at and serve 4 PoE cameras over 802.3af. If you have to run cable through an attic, you would love this!

Finally got to moving to different domain for my hosted services at home. To do that I need to update my nginx reverse proxy and use certbot to get new SSL certs from letsencrypt. Also, its always good to revoke your old certs!

Couldn't do it effectively without tmux. If you're in the CLI and aren't using tmux, you don't know what you're missing!
