oct 2025: 30 years of nettime

The nettime mailing list exists for 30 years.

From "choose-your-own adventure: a brief history of nettime" by Ted Byfield & Felix Stalder, nov 2015: "Relying on fluid relations of friendship made it possible to run the project without involving any financial exchanges, not even donations or grants. Someone pays for the domain name, but that's it. Everything is donated in kind, according to ability and according to need. There was never a compelling reason to develop any formal organizational structure, and - in light of periodic ruptures in funding patterns that led to so many failed cultural organizations - many compelling reasons not to. As an organization, then, 'nettime' is made up of deep, overlapping ties of mutual interest, friendship, respect, and commitment. For those without such ties 'nettime' might sometimes seem exclusive or even "closed," culturally speaking."

tbd.camp: "[tbd] calls on you to take a crowbar to the stack pointer and explore with us the raw limitless potential of the (turing) machine. We welcome any contribution that will salvage the broken remainders of that dream we once dreamed of free flowing information, will weaponise the trash from the electronics bin for the creation of noise and the downfall of the smart city, that creates outside the mind-numbingly boring paradigms of software development, that takes pride in a carefully placed goto statement, or that articulates whatever else the struggle for liberation leaves to be discussed... [tbd] is a participatory event organised by anyone who is interested in contributing. It is an open invitation to participate in co-creating an environment where knowledge is shared and infrastructure is decentralised. There is space to organise workshops, debates, present your ideas or projects, and engage with other inhabitants of the event."

Fantastic OPRFs and where to find them (Talk) by stf

An Oblivious Pseudo-Random Function (OPRF) is versatile
cryptographic primitive which is the basis for a wide range of
protocols and tools. They enable one to outsource randomness
computations to an other party without having to trust them or
make any compromises in confidentiality of the inputs. The most
common benefit of using an OPRF, is that it adds strong privacy
guarantees to protocols. A well-placed OPRF can also provide
confidentiality without needing a PKI infrastructure. In some
cases an OPRF can provide strong security guarantees that
traditional systems cannot provide. OPRFs are truly one of the
most exciting and underappreciated cryptographic building blocks
of the last decade.

In this talk I am will explain how OPRFs work, properties can
achieve, and how OPRFs are used in various protocols. I am going
to show some examples of existing free software tools which use
or provide OPRFs and how these tools compare to alternative

Mobilisatiedag Extinction Rebellion, zaterdag 21 augustus 2021, 12:00 tot 17:00, LAC gebouw, Mathildelaan 1a in Eindhoven

Maak jij je zorgen over de klimaatcrisis? Kom dan naar de Extinction Rebellion mobilisatiedag in Eindhoven!

De klimaatramp is dichterbij dan ooit. De bosbranden en overstromingen die deze zomer gaande zijn het resultaat van een terug leunende houding tegenover de klimaatcrisis. Hierom moet er actie ondernomen worden. Extinction Rebellion houdt daarom een mobilisatiedag op zaterdag 21 augustus van 12:00 tot 17:00. Het zal plaatsvinden in het LAC gebouw, Mathildelaan 1a in Eindhoven. Hier is ruimte om vragen te stellen over de beweging, toekomstige acties, het klimaat en nog veel meer.

Extinction Rebellion (Brabant en Limburg) is een burgerbeweging die door vreedzame, creatieve en disruptieve acties proberen de gevolgen van de klimaatcrisis te stoppen. Op de mobilisatiedag kan iedereen die geïnteresseerd is langskomen om kennis te maken met deze klimaatbeweging in het zuiden van het land. De dag is bedoeld voor zowel bekende rebellen als nieuwkomers of nieuwsgierigen. Er is muziek, je ontmoet gelijkgestemden en er is tijd voor een hapje en drankje. Er zijn verschillende workshops en lezingen om bij te wonen. Op het programma staat onder andere: een klimaatlezing met een eerlijk verhaal, een lezing over landbouw en klimaat en een workshop over de relatie tussen klimaat en racisme. Daarnaast zal er ook een training worden gegeven over hoe je veilig kunt actievoeren voor het klimaat. Als laatst is er ook de mogelijkheid om je eigen vlag of banner te maken.

"Old school hardcore, metalcore, doom, emo, metal, grindcore, postrock, punk, sludge, etc. [...] Just like the previous years, we hope to welcome about 10.000 visitors. [...] Each year over 120 volunteers make it all happen. The “DIY” spirit is still roaming around here!! [...] even in the food court itself we try to offer you [...] a good variety of tastes, all of course still 100 % plant-based. Yeah, right on: fully natural meals and snacks in front- and backstage, since 1992 [...] Open air in Ieper, Belgium, at the crossroads of Poperingseweg and Hazewindstraat. Ieper is situated in the Flemish speaking part of Belgium, in the so-called H8000 area (legendary among HC kids worldwide) and just 15 km away from the French border. The closest bigger cities are Kortrijk (BE) and Lille (FR). Ieper is a cosy town with just 35.000 inhabitants, internationally known as one of the war fields during both the first and second World Wars."

old refurbished lenovo thinkpad x230 laptop, bought from mostlyharmless.io. the coreboot boot menu makes booting from usb really a no-brainer: even I could do it without asking friends for what's the magic key combo i'd have to type really quickly at exactly the right moment after powering up the machine. thank you mostlyharmless.io. i've blessed the machine "agni".

installed debian bookworm using beautiful usb stick from debconf23 conference (installs / offers live system for debian bookworm, devuan, ubuntu, you name it). very happy with this massive amount of choice we offer the conference attendees. hats off to whoever made this happen.

the installer is also very nice: it's even possible to install a working system without any network access (i performed this operation in a dutch train, in less than half an hour) even with a jetlag-hampered and old brain it's possible :)

From: Simon Josefsson
Cc: debian-vote
Subject: Re: Changing how we handle non-free firmware
Message-ID: <8735deb3gg.fsf@latte.josefsson.org>

'Debian' as an OS is promised to be 100% DFSG free but 'Debian' as a
project will accept to distribute certain non-free material on its
servers.  Thus Debian can be labeled as a 100% free OS but Debian as a
project deals with non-free content but not as a first-class citizen.
This has lead to forks that don't want to be stuck with the same
dilemma -- Ubuntu/etc as a non-free variant and gNewSense/PureOS/etc as
a free variant.  This inconsistency may continue to be both a curse and
a blessing, allowing Debian to be relevant to both worlds.

How to deactivate search within firefox address bar: Tested on firefox-esr 91.4.1esr-1~deb11u1 op Debian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye). See my message to the nllgg linux list. Inspired by what Harindu Lakshan wrote on 4/15/20, 12:48 PM, I did:

    type in addressBar "about:config"
    click Accept the risk and continue

    Search "keyword.enabled" and change it to false
    Search "browser.fixup.alternate.enabled" and change it to false

You might want to do this if you want to protect your privacy and therefore don't want to inform the company behind your default search engine about any typos you make in domain names and urls.

Addendum, чет, 24. мар 2022.: you might also like this:

    type in addressBar "about:preferences#search"
    under Search, Search Bar: enable "Add search bar in toolbar"

The film is a poetic treatment of the life of 18th-century Armenian poet and troubadour Sayat-Nova. It has appeared in many polls as one of the greatest films ever made and was hailed as revolutionary by Mikhail Vartanov. The film is now regarded as a landmark masterpiece.

In het rapport (eindrapport_tijdelijke_commissie_uitvoeringsorganisaties.pdf) worden zeven aanbevelingen gedaan:

1. Praat met de burger en de uitvoeringsorganisaties.
2. Schenk meer aandacht aan de uitvoerbaarheid van beleid
 en aan doenvermogen (burgers moeten de wet niet alleen
 kennen, maar ook ‘kunnen’: ze moeten ernaar kunnen
3. Signaleer en adresseer problemen in de uitvoering zo
 snel mogelijk.
4. Creëer meer vertrouwen binnen de driehoek Tweede Kamer,
 departementen en uitvoeringsorganisaties.
5. Verbeter de kennis- en informatiepositie van de Tweede
6. Geef de uitvoering meer waardering en de professionals
 meer zeggenschap.
7. Evalueer de impact van deze aanbevelingen een jaar na
 behandeling in de Tweede Kamer.

Zie ook dit bericht over het eindrapport op tweedekamer.nl. Die aanbevelingen zijn niet alleen voor de samenwerking tussen 2e kamer, uitvoeringsorganisaties en burgers van toepassing, geloof ik.

ad tech: capitalism refined to its purest? by Ariadne Conill.

As my friend Maia put it, “ad tech is about trying to scam the rest of ad tech as hard as possible, while trying to not get scammed too hard yourself.” One can therefore argue that ad tech, like the crypto craze, is just capitalism refined to its purest: there is nothing of actual value being bought and sold at prices that are far in excess of what little value actually exists. And, like crypto, ad tech is responsible for substantial carbon dioxide emissions. In short, do everyone a favor, and use a damn ad blocker. Oh, and don’t work in ad tech. I have wilder stories to tell about that engagement, but sometimes things are better left unsaid.

Ross Anderson: Security Engineering - A Guide To Building Dependable Distributed Systems, 3rd edition, 2020, Wiley. ISBN: 978-1-119-64281-7, 1232 Pages. At Chapter 26: Surveillance or Privacy?, page 821, 26.1 it says:

Security technology arguments are often used to bamboozle or intimidate legislators. For example, all through the Irish republican terrorist campaign from the 1970s through 1990s, the British police had to charge arrested terrorist suspects within four days. But after 9/11, this was quickly raised to 28 days; then the government said it needed 90 days, claiming they might have diculty decrypting data on PCs seized from suspects. The real problem was police inefficiency at managing forensics. Now if the police had just said ‘we need to hold suspects for 90 days because we don’t have enough Somali interpreters’ then common sense could have kicked in; Parliament might well have told them to use staff from commercial translation agencies. But talk of decryption seems a goodway to turn legislators’ brains to mush. People who understand cryptography have a duty to speak out.

[...] "[...] this does not imply that the LUCA was ever alone: Instead, it was one of many early microbes but the only one whose descendants survived beyond the Paleoarchean Era." [...] "At the beginnings of life, ancestry was not as linear as it is today because the genetic code had not evolved.

Nocturnal Reading 06, 8 september 2021: Maria Roossen leest een verkorte versie van 'De Rijke Bramenplukker' (1952), een sprookje door Godfried J.A. Bomans (Den Haag, 2 maart 1913 – Bloemendaal, 22 december 1971).

"Voor STATIONS maakte Marien Schouten een architectonische sculptuur van multiplex. Nocturnal Reading is een uitwerking van A Reader’s Bedroom (2019), een houten ruimte met daarin aan de ruimte bevestigde meubelachtige objecten. Nocturnal Reading is niet alleen een formele architectonische sculptuur maar tevens een expressie van de toestand van slapeloosheid en tegelijkertijd een bestrijding van die toestand, waar Schouten vaak last van heeft en dan de nachtelijke uren vult met lezen."

'moderate conduct, not content'

'Any verbal expression [...] has two closely intertwined functions, which we can call informative (content) and performative (conduct).'

'conversation is a commons, and courtesy (performative) is one of the ways that participants maintain the commons'

'you preserve a commons by setting up formal limits on its use, and penalizing and excluding people who try to violate those limits'

'freedom of speech and freedom of the press are about [...] informative freedom, not performative freedom'

But I put the boa webserver on it and could just serve pages on the Internet. I didn’t have to get permission. Didn’t have to pay a hosting provider. I could just DO it.

I was recently startled at how much excitement there was when Github introduced “dark mode”. Yes, Github now offers two colors on its interface. Already back in the 80s and 90s, many DOS programs had more options than that. [...]

Can't Get You Out of My Head is a beautiful documentary from 2021 by Adam Curtis for the BBC: "Can’t Get You Out of My Head: An Emotional History of the Modern World is a six-part series that explores how modern society has arrived to the strange place it is today. The series traverses themes of love, power, money, the ghosts of empire, the history of China, opium and opioids, the strange roots of modern conspiracy theories, and the history of Artificial Intelligence. Inspired by the 2016 apex of populism—the political ideology which presents The People as morally good, and The Elite as morally bad—the underlying aim of the series is to show why the critics of Donald Trump and Brexit were unable to offer an alternative vision for the future."

3.2. Priority of Constituencies

In case of conflict, consider users over authors over implementors over specifiers over theoretical purity. In other words costs or difficulties to the user should be given more weight than costs to authors; which in turn should be given more weight than costs to implementors; which should be given more weight than costs to authors of the spec itself, which should be given more weight than those proposing changes for theoretical reasons alone.

tijdelijke natuur:
"Grondeigenaren, soms zelf ook natuurliefhebber,
besteden kosten om de natuur van hun terrein te
weren, voorafgaand aan de realisatie van de
terreinbestemming. Dat was een onbedoeld
negatief neveneffect van de Flora- en faunawet.
De ontheffing Tijdelijke Natuur is bedoeld om
dit neveneffect teniet te doen. Met die
ontheffing mogen grondeigenaren de beschermde
flora en fauna verwijderen op het moment dat de
gronden nodig zijn. Daar zijn wel enkele
voorwaarden aan verbonden. Zo geldt deze
toestemming alleen voor de beschermde planten en
dieren die zich nog niet op het terrein bevonden
vóórdat het een Tijdelijk Natuurgebied werd. Ook
moet worden voldaan aan de zorgplicht."

18 dec 2020: Costes and Anne Van der Linden

Kurt Snoekx for la revue bruxelloise Bruzz, nov 2019:

Anne Van der Linden turned sixty this year, but the star of the French underground still makes the same brutal work as when she had just exchanged her protective bourgeois home for a squat and a tangle of incalcitrant, subversive ideas. [...] her work is so essential and so desperately needed, whatever the ever-unanimous, nonsense spewing guardians of good taste who want to safeguard themselves from any and all inappropriate influences may claim, while a world in ruins processes past us on TV and on the street every day. We're all swimming in the same beautiful shit. That acceptance germinates here. As does rage.

If you can't get enough of that, you might also like costes (NSFW) (also on Wikipedia). 'seul contre tous' since 1954. In 2000 he released a CD “Nike ta race!” on the Rectangle label with rap and raï musicians.

How to install a bleeding edge youtube-dl (or any software from unstable/sid) on a Debian stable 10/buster system:

joostvb@oganj:~% echo 'APT::Default-Release "buster";' | \
 sudo tee /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01release
joostvb@oganj:~% echo deb http://deb.debian.org/debian sid main | \
 sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sid.list
joostvb@oganj:~% sudo apt update && sudo apt -V install youtube-dl/sid

It'll now get automagically kept up to date when doing your regular system updates (e.g. by running

sudo apt update && sudo apt -V dist-upgrade

NB: do this only when you like to live on the edge. In almost all circumstances, tracking youtube-dl from buster-backports gives better results in the end.

Almost a century ago, famed British author Virginia Woolf said that women needed “a room of one’s own” to allow for their creativity to flourish. Deferring to the opinion of external authorities, she wrote, was like inviting rot to develop at the heart of one’s work. On Instagram, deferring to the opinion of the authorities that built the newsfeed algorithm is not a choice. Refusing to show body parts dramatically curtails one’s audience. Male and female entrepreneurs must abide by the rules set by Facebook’s engineers if they want to stand a chance of making a living.

Date: Wed, 17 Jun 2020 12:03:34 +0000
From: Debian FTP Masters
To: Joost van Baal-Ilić
Subject: caspar_20200611-1_amd64.changes ACCEPTED into unstable

The .deb entered in the Debian archive, and this version (or a newer one) will likely end up in the upcoming Debian 11/bullseye release. This caspar release will likely enter Debian bullseye (testing). (Debian 7/wheezy (stable) ships caspar 20120530-1; Debian 6/squeeze (oldstable) ships caspar 20100624-1 [...] etch 20060618-1; sarge 20050302-1.)

You can read about the changes in the Debian package, and about what's new in the caspar tarball.

If you'd like to use this new caspar on your Debian 10/buster system, you can just fetch the unstable package and install that one: there are very few (and only harmless) dependencies. Or, even better, you might like to try to track this package using apt pinning.

And then there's this nice story about Russian animator and childrens book writer Влади́мир Григо́рьевич Суте́ев: "Suteev took part in the Great Patriotic War from the first days till the very end. He then returned to Soyuzmultfilm, but left it in just two years because of his unrequited love towards Tatiana Taranovich, also an animator who joined Soyuzmultfilm in 1946. Their sad story was well-known inside the animation community. She was 13 years younger than Suteev, happily married with a daughter. According to Tatiana's granddaughter, Suteev wrote "hundreds of letters" to her, but she answered only twice. Nevertheless, 37 years later they finally married. By that time they were both widowers; Suteev turned 80, while Taranovich was 67. They lived together for 10 more years and both died in 1993."

"SyRi-wetgeving in strijd met het Europees Verdrag voor de Rechten van de Mens" tweets Haagse Rechtbank. And nos.nl reports on it on feb 5, 2020 in "Anti-fraudesysteem SyRI moet van tafel, overheid maakt inbreuk op privéleven":

"De huidige wetgeving over het omstreden overheidsprogramma Systeem Risico Indicatie (SyRI) moet van tafel. Deze is niet controleerbaar en respecteert het privéleven van betrokken burgers onvoldoende, zegt de rechtbank Den Haag. De wet die het inzetten van SyRI regelt, Structuur Uitvoeringsorganisatie Werk en Inkomen, is in strijd met artikel 8 van het Europees Verdrag voor de Rechten van de Mens. [...] SyRI is een initiatief van het ministerie van Sociale Zaken. Het systeem werd gebruikt in Rotterdam, Eindhoven, Haarlem en Capelle aan den IJssel, maar problemen bij de uitvoering of techniek gooiden roet in het eten. De rechtszaak was aangespannen door het Nederlands Juristen Comité voor de Mensenrechten (NJCM), Platform Bescherming Burgerrechten, Privacy First en Stichting KDVP, oftewel De Koepel. Onder anderen columnist Maxim Februari en schrijver Tommy Wieringa hadden zich betrokken bij de zaak."

And also on asser.nl: "[...] the neighbourhoods where SyRI is now implemented used to have a helpdesk to provide support to file tax and welfare forms. However, this has since been closed due to budget cuts. This is problematic because filling out these forms without making any mistakes is a challenge for anyone, something that our previous Ombudsman Brenninkmeijer already recognised in 2013. [...]"

And zylstra.org: "SyRI is sinds 2015 toegepast in Eindhoven (G.A.L.O.P. II), de Afrikaanderwijk te Rotterdam, Capelle aan den IJssel, Rotterdam Bloemhof & Hillesluis en Haarlem Schalkwijk. Altijd in sociaal zwakkere wijken. En in contrast met alle verhalen over cutting edge dingen die je met big data en algoritmen kunt doen, werkt SyRi geheel niet. Het vonnis gaat daar verder niet op in, want het was geen onderdeel van de zaak. De Volkskrant achterhaalde vorig jaar echter dat er nog géén énkel fraudegeval is opgespoord sinds SyRI in 2014 wettelijk mogelijk werd. Maar iedere inwoner van de genoemde wijken is er wel als bij voorbaat verdacht voor aangemerkt."

En Peter Olsthoorn met veel linkjes naar bronnen. En Arnoud Engelfriet:

"[...] Grof gezegd: als in het weekend je waterverbruik hoger is dan normaal en je staat als alleenstaand bekend, dan ben je een mogelijke fraudeur, pardon een risico want kennelijk woont je partner in het weekend bij jou.

And Elizabeth M. Renieris writes on medium.com:

"The emerging case law shows us that we don’t need #ownyourdata campaigns or fancy data-as-property proposals to preserve our privacy, dignity, and autonomy. Rather, we need our lawful institutions to apply decades-old laws and principles to new and emerging technologies through an unchanging lens of our shared humanity. Despite a few panicked years of drowning in data and grasping at straws to govern this new reality, it may well be that the answer has been right in front of us all along."

In this commit on mpv-player: "stream_libarchive: workaround various types of locale braindeath", wm4 wrote, in Nov 2017:

Fix that libarchive fails to return filenames for UTF-8/UTF-16 entries.
The reason is that it uses locales and all that garbage, and mpv does
not set a locale.

Both C locales and wchar_t are shitfucked retarded legacy braindeath. If
the C/POSIX standard committee had actually competent members, these
would have been deprecated or removed long ago. (I mean, they managed to
remove gets().) To justify this emotional outbreak potentially insulting
to unknown persons, I will write a lot of text. Those not comfortable
with toxic language should pretend this is a religious text.
All in all, I believe this proves that software developers as a whole
and as a culture produce worse results than drug addicted butt fucked
monkeys randomly hacking on typewriters while inhaling the fumes of a
radioactive dumpster fire fueled by chinese platsic toys for children
and Elton John/Justin Bieber crossover CDs for all eternity.

Within 12 hours, they gathered almost 1 mln in loans. This is extraordinary:

_eight_ fucking days to reach the one million mark. Plan B reached that same
mark in just over 12 hours, with no press _at all_ surrounding the start of
their loan campaign.  It's a blast from the past: when XS4al started way back
when, they hoped that they’d gather 500 subscribers within the ensuing year:
that would tide them over. Instead, they got more than 500 subscribers in one
weekend. The same thing is happening now.

Some history: Sinéad O'Connor @ Saturday Night Live, 1992: In 1992 (3 Oct), O'Connor (then 26 years old) appeared on Saturday Night Live. She sang an a cappella version of Bob Marley's "War", which she intended as a protest against sexual abuse of children in the Catholic Church, referring to child abuse rather than racism. She then tore a photo of Pope John Paul II into pieces. The incident occurred nine years before the Pope acknowledged the sexual abuse within the Church. Two weeks after the Saturday Night Live appearance, on 17 Oct 1992, she was set to perform "I Believe in You" at the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary tribute concert in Madison Square Garden. The "don't let the bastards get you down"-incident happened, with Kris Kristofferson.

It's on youtube @ QiadASyP0bU and o8B_J-Bd0iE, and there's a twitter tweet on it @ audrawilliams/status/1086857070362705921 .

I believe this is what gives me (this is on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS):

instead of (on Debian GNU/Linux 9.8 (stretch) w/ coreutils 8.26-3)

Note to self: find out what's going on here... And, even more important: stop using su from within a root shell, but start only using su to increase my permissions. If you're interactively running su (or sudo) as root, you're doing something wrong. You're prone to vulnerabilities in Unix tty handling.

I've managed to remember: I've attended

DebConf0 and DebConf1 were in Bordeax, France, at the RMLL / LSM event. DebConf2 was in Canada. DebConf3 was the first DebConf which published Tshirts.

Did running in Montreal: Ran alone, with breaks, did record distance nor time. Did do 10 km in 51 minutes (including about 2 minutes of traffic lights), with Tollef. Also: ran with Kartik, about 10 km, some rain. Also: ran in Laval, north of Montreal, about 5 km I guess, in the rain.

нед, 25. дец 2016.: new laptop: "perun"

Got myself a new laptop; I've named it "perun". It's a lenovo thinkpad X200 with 500 gb ssd, 4 gb ram and dual core intel cpu 2400 MHz. Debian GNU/Linux stable preinstalled and Libreboot preinstalled \o/. Thanks Paul van der Vlis!

How to use your laptop as a "walkman": carry it in your bag, use a headphone playing music:

root@perun:~# vi /etc/systemd/logind.conf

and change "#HandleLidSwitch=suspend" into "HandleLidSwitch=ignore". Now if you reboot your laptop and start playing music, and then close the lid, your music should keep playing. Tested on Debian jessie running systemd. See logind.conf(5) for more information. (A full reboot might not be needed, you might get away with just hibernating your laptop (e.g. by running "obsession-exit --hibernate", as non-root) and power it on again.)

update, сре, 4. окт 2023.: no a full reboot is not needed, and a hibernate won't help. the way to effectuate a change in logind.conf is:

root@agni:~# systemctl restart systemd-logind

(or maybe better "reload" instead of "restart".) tnx DaemonInformatic @ DBLUG

News for Natural Language Processing scientists interested in Memory-Based Learning (dealing with classification tasks, generating part-of-speech taggers or chunkers and related subjects): Real Soon Now, updated versions of

 mbt mbtserver ticcutils timbl timblserver dimbl
will get uploaded to Debian/sid. Furthermore,
 frog frogdata libfolia ucto

are scheduled to get removed from testing; the upcoming Debian stretch release will ship without that software (as agreed upon in a discussion between me and upstream developers, march 9 2016).

These 10 pieces of software are developed by the LAnguage MAchines group by Antal van den Bosch. Functionality of frog and ucto is also available as a webservice from the Centre for Language and Speech Technology Webservices.

In 2010, this software entered the Debian archive; and since march 2013, users of Ubuntu and Debian systems should just run:

$ sudo apt-get install science-linguistics

once, and, from then on, one's system is automagically kept up to date w.r.t. LAMA software.

Current versions of ILK-tools as shipped with Debian; "upstream" what we would like to get shipped with upcoming stretch release, if time permits.

Mon, 04 Apr 2016: "This version of XScreenSaver is very old! Please upgrade!"

I was shocked when my beloved and trusted XScreenSaver on my Debian/stable system started behaving differently, and show me this annoying message "This version of XScreenSaver is very old! Please upgrade!". After reading Bug #819703 I decided XScreenSaver and I should depart (after a lot of years). So I ran:

root@incagijs:~# apt -V install xtrlock && apt -V purge xscreensaver
joostvb@incagijs:~% xtrlock -b

and was happy again. (BTW, i3lock and suckless-tools' slock do the job too.) XScreenSaver's author Jamie Zawinski wrote "I would like Debian to stop shipping XScreenSaver". In a reponse, Matthew Garrett wrote the insightful "There's more than one way to exploit the commons". People also discess the issue at LWN. And the "bug" got "fixed".

And I wrote this crude 1 minute hack (a1-lock needs a1-prompt) tweaking xtrlock's behaviour.

Ian Murdock died a victim of mental illness. It’s horrible that such a genius, someone who did so much good, went through that disease and had such a meaningless, unfair, undignified death.

сре, 9. дец 2015.: crypto

The Moral Character of Cryptographic Work by Phillip Rogaway was published december 1, 2015.

Abstract: Cryptography rearranges power: it configures who can do what, from what. This makes cryptography an inherently political tool, and it confers on the field an intrinsically moral dimension. The Snowden revelations motivate a reassessment of the political and moral positioning of cryptography. They lead one to ask if our inability to effectively address mass surveillance constitutes a failure of our field. I believe that it does. I call for a community-wide effort to develop more effective means to resist mass surveillance. I plea for a reinvention of our disciplinary culture to attend not only to puzzles and math, but, also, to the societal implications of our work.

Here's a PDF.

уто, 29. сеп 2015.: blog post by Rodney Folz

"Selling Out and the Death of Hacker Culture - We’ve sold each other for profit and lost what makes us happy." by Rodney Folz, about hackatons, past and present:

"[...] there was now a judging process; there were now first, second, and third places, with associated prizes. I remember these prizes being alluring — people were less willing to talk about what they were building, less willing to help others debug, because that was time they could spend building their hack. And if they had the best hack, they could beat everyone else and take first place. Yahoo! might even hire them."

2014  45 (15 G + in
 total 30 G donated by
2015   2 (and counting)
430 GB in total

As of aug 2013, I had 381 GB of music. Running "mpc stats" tells me about this 381 gigabytes:

Artists:   7836
Albums:    4262
Songs:    50961
DB Play Time: 168
 days, 22:47:55

That's 14597275 seconds per 381 GB, a 70 minutes CD takes 112 MB, a 5 minute song takes 8 MB. (I store songs in ogg, mp3, flac, m4a, you name it.)

Recent additions, in MBs:

Dunno why 2013 was such a lousy year wrt music. strange...

нед, 1. мар 2015.: VCS

My current VCS-preference list is:

  1. git (Currently using it)
  2. darcs
  3. cvs
  4. svn (Subversion, Currently using it)
  5. rcs
  6. hg (mercurial) (Never used that)
  7. bzr (Bazaar)
  8. mtn (monotone) (Never used that)
  9. tla (GNU Arch)

I'm an experienced user of 7 of those 9. Still have a love/hate-relationship with git btw. CVS wasn't that bad after all. I'm getting more and more annoyed by Subversion. I'd _love_ to start using darcs again one day; hrm... maybe I can convert systraq's svn repo to darcs... Otoh, at one point I was not using just 2, but 5 of those systems concurrently. That's proven to be next to impossible for me...

(There's (still) a bug in this script: it mixes debian source packages with debian binary packages. Thanks to JanC for pointing this out. I don't think fixing it will yield another ordering in the different version control systems, 'though.)

суб, 28. феб 2015.: draai

New draai release: version 20150228 - The Nieuwe Leij Release. draai is a command line music player, implemented as a wrapper around mpc(1). You can read about what's new in this release.

A new draai Debian package: draai 20150228-1 got published. (version 20140828 - The Nuuk Release will likely never get packaged for Debian.)

    .... (.....)           20090615-1 (ITP: #519838, Jun 2009)
    squeeze (oldstable)    20100511-1
    wheezy (stable)        20110603-1
    jessie (testing)       20131212-1
    stretch (newtesting)   20150228-1 (?)
    buster (newnewtesting) ?
    sid (unstable)         20150228-1

draai 20150228-1 has entered the Debian archive, and will likely end up in the next upcoming Debian stretch release. (Debian jessie will likely get shipped with draai 20131212-1.) You can read about the changes in the Debian package.

If you'd like to use draai on your Ubuntu Linux system, you're lucky: draai gets shipped with Ubuntu since the "lucid" release. This new draai release will likely get shipped with the upcoming Ubuntu Linux release.

nov 2014: debian systemd init stuff

Nice blog post by Stefano "zack" Zacchiroli about Debian's General Resolution: init system coupling:

The winning option is not as crazy as its label might imply (voting to declare that the vote was not required? WTH?). [...] With this GR the Debian Project affirms that the procedures we have used to decide the default init system for Jessie and to arbitrate the ensuing conflicts are just fine. People might flame and troll debian-devel as much as they want (actually, I'm pretty sure we would all like them to stop, but that matter wasn't on the ballot so you'll have to take my word for it). People might write blog posts and make headlines corroborating the impression that Debian is still being torn apart by ongoing init system battles. But this vote says instead that the large majority of project members thinks our decision making and conflict-arbitration procedures, which most prominently include the Debian Technical Committee, have served use "adequately" well over the past troubled months.

I've requested for Lire to get removed from the Debian archive since it's buggy, upstream development is stalled, nobody wants to maintain the Debian package, and there aren't that many users. Lire, the full-featured log analyzer and report generator, has been shipped with Debian since woody, it entered April 19, 2001. 13 years ago.

суб, 1. нов 2014.: ILK NLP software

Good news for Natural Language Processing scientists interested in Memory-Based Learning (dealing with classification tasks, generating part-of-speech taggers or chunkers and related subjects). In the last 4 months, the Induction of Linguistic Knowledge Research Group, Tilburg University, together with the Language Technology Research group of CLiPS, Antwerp released new versions of their software packages:

 ticcltools-0.1.tar.gz	14-Aug-2014 17:10 	389K
 foliatools-0.1.tar.gz	14-Aug-2014 17:51 	384K

 frogdata-0.6.tar.gz	29-Sep-2014 09:48 	19M

The Debian packaging infrastructure is being moved from Subversion to git, on alioth.debian.org. The first results are visible:

 Oct 28 Debian FTP Master: mbt_3.2.10-5_amd64.changes ACCEPTED into unstable
 Oct 30 Debian FTP Master: ticcutils_0.7-2_amd64.changes ACCEPTED into unstable
 Oct 31 Debian FTP Master: timbl_6.4.6-1_amd64.changes ACCEPTED into unstable

Fresh .deb's of ucto e.a. will get uploaded RSN. They'll end up in the upcoming Debian stretch release. Jessie will ship with:

dimbl       0.12-2
frog        0.12.17-7.1
frogdata    0.4-1
libfolia    0.10-4.2
mbt         3.2.10-4
mbtserver   0.7-3
ticcutils   0.4-5.1
timbl       6.4.4-4
timblserver 1.7-4
ucto        0.5.3-3.1

. For people running Debian "stable": In may 2013, Debian 7.0 "wheezy" was released. It comes with timbl 6.4.2-1, timblserver 1.4-2, mbt 3.2.8-1, mbtserver 0.5-2, libfolia 0.9-2, frog 0.12.15-3, frogdata 0.3-2, ucto 0.5.2-2 and dimbl 0.11-1. It will likely be supported till about late 2014.

aephea is a text-based authoring tool for HTML. If you'd like to generate manpages, but don't like troff syntax, and find Perl's POD too limited, Aephea's Portable Unix Documentation is likely useful for you.

The new aephea package has entered the Debian archive. This version (or a later one) will show up in the upcoming upcoming Debian jessie release.

I am working on getting it in wheezy too. If I fail, wheezy will ship with aephea 10.008-1. (And zoem 11-166-1. squeeze ships zoem 08-248-1. Debian ships zoem since March 2004.)

djbdns is not shipped with any Debian release, it's available in unstable only, due to Bug #516394. There's an alternative for djbdns: dbndns, a fork of the djbdns package, including patches for e.g. providing IPv6 functionality. That one is not in any stable release either; due to the same bug.

Downtown Kigali, by Jenny and Randy aka hellotrain on their blog The Other Side of the FenceI'm back home from my first trip to Rwanda. Have visited the cities of Kigali (pictures) and Butare; have been working as a volunteer at the AfNOG-11 meeting's AfNOG Workshop 2010 at Kigali Institute of Technology. Furthermore, I've visited the IT department of Rwanda Development Board as well as National Universitsity of Rwanda. I've learned to enjoy Zingaru with Pilipili while having a "Mintzig" and am happy to have met the very kind people of Rwanda. I'll be back.

Uploaded new Eekboek (Bookkeeping software for small and medium-size businesses) Debian package: eekboek 1.04.02-1 has entered the Debian archive. It will likely enter Debian unstable soonish. You can read about the changes in the Debian package. This version (or a later one) will likely end up in Debian squeeze (the current unstable). lenny (the current testing) won't ship eekboek. It'll also likely get shipped with Ubuntu. You can view some Debian developer information about the package, and browse its Version Control repository.
