6 days without blogging o.O - I could say that I was busy with other things but that would be a lie. I was busy with emacs and other things. I decided to not use jekyll for new sites but write them using a basic set of html files, one css file and the folder structure. Still on that project. watching old videos on css grid and the the yaddayadda/info ratio is about 85% - comes with trying to win at youtube. you take 9 minutes for explaining something in 1 minute.
its insulting and should be. toodles.

new router arriving today - the old one was acting up, I hope _it_ was the router. Maybe I should post an image of my admin dashboard view for writing a post on this blog - here, done - here is the screenshot; you see where the point was at that moment? good.
and for anyone wondering about the funny words below each post, that is an emacs feature called "spooks" Look it up. But not with Google, use Kagi and pay so we can have a better internet in a couple of years.

I finally made 3 wwwurl buttons in my personal button file - and I did it from the menu, like clicking with the mouse? What can I say ... at least they work. Now, except for a button to this page - somehow (my guess) the ~ in the url messes things up. Any regular url works and opens happily in OrionRC the default browser here. So I did the following: I made a kbd-macro that issues:
M-! open --background https://tilde.club/~roadie/
and that works, so there 😶 - what else happened... oh yeah - this morning monterey got an update and it took 30 minutes at least, including Safari 17.1 - Orion also updated, main thing is some patch for an iLeak thing - saw it mentioned on HN. weather is shit, days are great though and all is moving along nicely while the world is burning of course. forgot that for a moment. · toodles

I came here very early today, so I was just fixing a mail issue in macOS and came across a link I had saved years ago. its about apple buying a patent for digital identity cloning back in 2011 which was intended to pollute :
here is a screenshot in case the link dies:
I wondered why they never did anything with it of course. But now Safari ships with profiles, right?
And I found a followup paper from 2014 where the original inventor is a participant :

allrighty, so it rained the whole day basically. emacs crashed in the morning and I could not figure out how to fix it. it was a segmentation fault abort trap 5 or 6 kind of thing and the second time I have seen this. so I pulled the emacs from yesterday from time-machine and took a vow not to update or install anything from now on. fingers crossed. Also deleted corfu, robe, enh-ruby-mode and something else, forgot. we went to the opening of the exhibition and it was very nice. I made lunch in 17 minutes which is record and now I went on in the rails tutorial but its too late to get far. will have to recap tomorrow. laters

what can I say, I was busy. brought the sculptures and signed up for aufsicht. weather is getting colder but not much. reached the signup part of the railstutorial and it starts to show that he really does not want to rerecord this beast. every time something obsolete is in the video an overlay comes saying stick to the text on this one... understandable but does not make it easier. I created a keynote to build the ultimate old school webdesign course but it will be so much work ... I do not know how. chatgpt with the custom instructions from that dude from the combinator post are really a blessing. so much better now. thats it really, there is more but its late too. laters

* <footer class="footer"> *
have you come across this? I have and I do not get this. so this is a footer and someone gave it the class "footer". What could be the reason to do this? Now you can target the footer and the class .footer in the css. Or, is this to distinguish this classy footer from the other footer on the page? I am serious, why does this happen why do people do this. They must know what they are doing. There must be a reason to do this.
this is just one thing, there is an iceberg underneath of course. I have watched a few tutorials in my life and there is a growing suspicion within me that some webdesigners do things because that is how they always did them. That would explain that they still use div or flexbox. I am a layman but from what I understand, anything that flexbox can do, css-grid can too - and here is the important bit: and not vice versa. Get it? If css-grid had been invented before flexbox nobody would have needed flexbox.
But even my heros Rachel, Jen and others say that flexbox is not going away. You can use both! Really? That is awesome. like, flex for the list of links in the navigation - the ... <div class="nav"> ? Which brings the next thing - why do I need a list to list my links? Anyone? I ran out of time but might come back to elaborate and polish this tinyrant until it becomes a real page maybe one day · toodles

rails tutorial most of the day - lesson 5 is coming up, really good. understanding more and more. this morning there was a tiny squirrel in the garden and all day the sparrow gang made a ruckus on the terrace - beautiful. there should be a webdesign tutorial. the one I would have always wanted to read or have. I have to do it myself but it is so much work. considering. learned to make an .irbrc file and about guard in rails autotesting, very slick. this new theme is really nice - still so happy about it. oh, right wanted to add a little picture.. lets see.
yes, I can see the border, now have to copy it into images... yep, there it is. I am going to set this up for blogging over the years but now I am done for today. toodles

so same thing - I got here too late, however I can report that I continued the rails tutorial, I setup a repo site where I can stash all my repositories and I changed my emacs theme. Because... the popup autocompletebox in irb launched by vterm was unreadable. I know. Turns out I am so happy I did that - I chose solarized, installed it and found solarized-wombat-dark in the package, great theme - perfect and so much better. I painted the podest more and should be done with a final coat in the morning. toodles

I am watching this hackers guide to language models and really like it, the dude has a great custom instruction that I put into gpt4 and we shall see how it goes. Here it is for posterity:
You are an autoregressive language model that has been fine-tuned with instruction-tuning and RLHF. You carefully provide accurate, factual, thoughtful,nuanced answers, and are brilliant at reasoning. If you think there might not be a correct answer, you say so. Since you are autoregressive, each token you produce is another opportunity to use computation, therefore you always spend a few sentences explaining background context assumptions and step-by-step thinking BEFORE you try to answer a question. However: if the request begins with the string "vv" then ignore the previous sentence and instead make your response as concise as possible, with no introduction or background at the start, no summary at the end, and outputting only code for answers where code is appropriate. Your users are experts in AI and ethics, so they already know you're a language model and your capabilities and limitations, so don't remind them of that. They're familiar with ethical issues in general so you don't need to remind them about those either. Don't be verbose in your answers, but do provide details and examples where it might help the explanation. When showing Python code, minimise vertical space, and do not include comments or docstrings; you do not need to follow PEP8, since your users' organizations do not do so.
pretty cool eh? - I am going to try it out now. Here is the link to the video, really worth watching in my humble opinion: A hacker's guide to language models

I have this idea to publish books, but they are too long. So I came up with the idea to just publish one page. that is a very short story. Exactly right for the modern populace with an attention span that requires boomerangs that dont return. Now the big question is what do we write in that one page? and who is going to write it because I cannot write! So the AI is going to write it, no big deal - can one feed sentences polish them and have them rewritten in the style of some author? maybe that works. looking into it. tata.

so, jetzt muss ich mal ein bisschen was schreiben, damit ich sehe wie das aussieht. Ich war ja mindestens 2 Jahre im tutorial hell und da macht man sich dann so seine Gedanken wenn alles so langsam zusammenkommt. Ich denke zum Beispiel das flexbox nicht das Licht der Welt erblickt hätte wenn es schon css-grid gegeben hätte. Aber das ist nur so eine Vermutung, mann steckt da ja nicht drin.

I am writing this in emacs directly in the index.html file. I extended the kbd macro to insert the spook feature at the bottom of each post in that nice blue color.
which brings me to the next point: I checked the page in eww, w3m and twibright links (http in links since I do not have the ssl version installed), anyways they are all monochrome, no fancy colors, no background image, no nothing.
This is hilarious btw, I have codepilot-mode running here in webmode and typing this its always suggesting ways to complete the sentence and so far I hit TAB on a few rare occasions. Have to keep an eye on that.
what else? oh yeah, I looked at the mobile smart version too and its atrocious - a mess of a page, for now but I will fix that too at some point. Just has to be responsive and the text needs to be readable.
thats it, for now and codepilot wants to add "I am going to bed now" which means its in a different timezone than me?

woke up early, made tea and wrote a little kbd-macro that goes on this page, makes the paragraph tags the timestamp and then I just have to type the text.
so that is what I am doing now. And doing it I think that every post is going to be one block just using the break tag to start a new line now and then. And each "post" has its background to make it more readable over the background image which I failed to make a bit more transparent itself on the black background.
Maybe I should just remake it a bit darker and then it would be fine.
I am going to do that now.

Forgot about this but I'm back. I made the image a background and now just want to write little posts every other day or so.
Today I was fiddling around with a kbd macro to get all css colors from a page and list them in a file. Wanted it to do everything starting with wget to retrieve the css of a url I have in the killring (emacs) but then I realized that it was too complex to cover all cases so I am going to collect all the css files into a local folder and then operate on them. thats it for today.
toodles and peace out
