Step up to the mike …
I'm a bit annoyed Stuff haven't explained in depth what the IDI is. And how come we had all that hooha about Bill English and big data and this wasn't explained then?
Had a problem with a raid array not starting after a kernel update and reboot. I may have to reboot a few more times.
Substack on the RSS looks good (for Nick at least)
Unfortunately this was a social day (partners birthday). So it took a while.
Problem turned out to be a few extra drives from the old raid array which I’d forgetten to remove the superblock from. Which was why the site was starting up in January.
I’ll have a look later to see if anyone commented, and maybe do a port.
One more reboot to test that everything starts properly.
That came up without problems.
Now I just have to set aside some time to remove the extra drives from the case.
There were half a dozen comments on OM 8/1/23
Woken up after a pleasant doze. I'll dig them out of the comments on the old drive(s). But I'll load them into a virtual machine.
Turkish public broadcaster TRT World's coverage of today's earthquake.
Dozens of large after shocks, too. Awful.
Insufficient fire brigades Iskenderuna aid teams could not come. Fires started to break out. We cannot reach our friends under the rubble. Teams are needed. Nobody knows what to do. please spread help urgent
Aftershocks continuing at 6.5+ – truly devastating.
Widespread offers of help across Europe (and other countries)
I thought this was a really interesting and informative (well, at least for me) article on the imminent risks that AI (even if it's not really true 'intelligence', it's a reasonable facsimile) may pose to information – and especially social media influencing.
Like all technologies, it has the potential to be a two-edged sword. And, in an environment of information illiteracy (most information consumers neither question their data nor curate their sources for balance) – could change the social environment radically.
