How do people even discover new music in the post-last.fm age? I feel really old because im excited to have found a program with decent music on the public radio.
Youtube and Spotify recommendations are shit, not sure how they did it but after 10 years of development in the field of statistics / "AI", these two still cannot even come close to last.fm.
One advantage of contributing to Mozilla Common Voice is that it is very likely that all kinds of new voice recognition engines will be trained on your own voice. I've been trying proprietary accessibility program Talon and it has been recognizing my shitty accent better than Google or any other engines ever have. Because it has been trained on my shitty accent. You don't need to be an altruist in order to contribute to https://commonvoice.mozilla.org/ , selfish reasons are okay too.
Working with the creator of #PHP, you sometimes get deep lore like "the original function hashing mechanism was strlen(), so I named the early functions so as to spread them out evenly in the hash table"
One more update! @smpl alerted me to a torrent of youtube-dl with all branches and full commit history.
This seems to have been sourced from: https://git.osuv.de/star/youtube-dl
I've mirrored that repository here: https://codeberg.org/polarisfm/youtube-dl
Here's the torrent: https://polarisfm.net/mirrors/youtube-dl.git.7z.torrent
Here's the original Tor Hidden Service that contained the torrent (also has a download for the 7z itself): http://3ednr4mi7zo5fpdghabu74furrr6ir7pgk27o7jz5zfc3lc27npgfbqd.onion/
@uint8_t good thing we'll all respect the takedown, and definitely not download it from any of the following mirrors and continue rehosting
@GOwin Are you sure they dont extract all possible metadata including face recognition or so , for the owner (FB) before bluring ? They are now ,in fact, a part of world largest business based on exploring our privacy.
Shared #PHP web hosting is a hostile environment, with all kinds of limits and idiocy imposed on the script. I avoid any jobs involving working in such an environment (imagine working without an error log!), which makes me even more impressed with Akeeba Backup. Just take a look at this little wizard trying to sense all kinds of limitations so it can do its job even where it's hardly doable.
censorship on google play, fedi meta
so google wants to throw out all fediverse clients from the play store, because one can access hate speech instances with them and they consider the client developers responsible for that
by that logic, google would have to…
1. ban all web browsers (including chrome) too, because surprise, all fedi instances have a web interface
2. ban Twitter and Fashbook too, because they're VERY tolerant of right wing hate speech (more than most mastodon and some Pleroma instances)

A month without network outage is a month lost at #vultr. You'd think they have their shit together given their pricing.
