Interesting.

Need to make friends with this thing..

Also I don’t like these colors anymore they need a haircut and proper pallet oration.

Soonly perhaps tomorrow!

I think so.

There-in I found it'd actually got a lot of nice options for making a book and not so much for markdown, like I made a dead simple test and created an .ePub book (a format kindle supports,) in less than five minutes.

** That’s powerful. **

It's nice though. :). I will do the yearly subscription.

// Now before I forget, I need to paste my test document here:

Also, I need to buy the following:

  • [ ] New Bluetooth keyboard
  • [ ] Some cloth masks
  • [ ] What was it again ?! Darn I forgot already.

and start off a bit differently with an h2 instead of a h1 today.

Okay so, there are so many things that can be said about software, but presumably unless you are a programmer or run Linux, you just want it to work and don't know fix to fix it when or if it breaks.


Also, this is fine, from my vantage and fully normal.


So what kinds of things do people want software to generally do? We'll see that's where it's funny, and there are so many diverse workflows and software interfaces or styles of working.

Take auto-correct for example. You have to “train,” it.. and wouldn't It be nice if your word processor after some months have you the option to re-assemble the layout of buttons based on what it's noticed you use the most?

This is just more code, if a word processor did or was to do that, it's not gotten a mind of its own, its just something a clever and thoughtful human or team of humans thought it would be useful for it to do.

That was the whole thought.

what does this look like now on my blog? also, let's see if this “annotation,” is just a code block.

I bet it orders them and can be referenced like a latex or common-mark TOC..

:) 『This is the one I want to know what it does..』

was wondering when this would finally happen.


Boston Dynamics Is Selling its 70-Pound Robot Dog To Police Departments

4 HOURS AGO

The New York Times reports on what the city's police department calls Digidog, “a 70-pound robotic dog with a loping gait, cameras and lights affixed to its frame, and a two-way communication system that allows the officer maneuvering it remotely to see and hear what is happening.”

Police said the robot can see in the dark and assess how safe it is for officers to enter an apartment or building where there may be a threat.

The NYPD has been using robots since the 1970s to save lives in hostage situations and hazmat incidents,” the department said on Twitter.

“This model of robot is being tested to evaluate its capabilities against other models in use by our emergency service unit and bomb squad. “But the robot has skeptics. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat, described Digidog on Twitter as a “robotic surveillance ground” drone....

Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst with the American Civil Liberties Union, said empowering a robot to do police work could have implications for bias,mobile surveillance, hacking and privacy.

There is also concern that the robot could be paired with other technology and be weaponized.

too late, they already did that, but shh.


“We do see a lot of police departments adopting powerful new surveillance and other technology without telling, let alone asking, the communities they serve,” he said.

“So openness and transparency is key....”

A mobile device that can gather intelligence about a volatile situation remotely has “tremendous potential” to limit injuries and fatalities, said Keith Taylor, a former SWAT team sergeant at the police department who teaches at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

“It's important to question police authority; however, this appears to be pretty straightforward,” he said.

“It is designed to help law enforcement get the information they need without having a deadly firefight, for instance.”

The Times reports that Boston Dynamics has been selling the dog since June.

It's also already being used by the Massachusetts State Police and the Honolulu Police Department, while other police departments have called the company to learn more about the robot, which has a starting price of about $74,000 and may cost more with extra features,” according to Michael Perry, vice president of business development at the company.

The Times points out that the robot dog is also being purchased by utility and energy companies as well as manufacturers and construction companies, which use it to get into dangerous spaces.

“The robot has been used to inspect sites with hazardous material.

Early in the pandemic, it was used by health care workers to communicate with potentially sick patients at hospital triage sites, Perry said.”

Introducing Crowdsec: a Modernized, Collaborative Massively Multiplayer Firewall

Slashdot reader b-dayyy writes.

CrowdSec is a massively multiplayer firewall designed to protect Linux servers , services, containers, or virtual machines exposed on the Internet with a server-side agent.



It was inspired by Fail2Ban and aims to be a modernized, collaborative version of that intrusion-prevention tool.

CrowdSec is free and open-source (under an MIT License), with the source code available on GitHub.

It uses a behavior analysis system to qualify whether someone is trying to hack you, based on your logs. If your agent detects such aggression, the offending IP is then dealt with and sent for curation.

If this signal passes the curation process, the IP is then redistributed to all users sharing a similar technological profile to 'immunize' them against this IP.

The goal is to leverage the power of the crowd to create a real-time IP reputation database.

As for the IP that aggressed your machine, you can choose to remedy the threat in any manner you feel appropriate.

Ultimately, CrowdSec leverages the power of the community to create an extremely accurate IP reputation system that benefits all its users. It was clear to the founders that Open Source was going to be one of the main pillars of CrowdSec.

The project's founders have been working on open-source projects for decades— they didn't just jump on the train. Rather, they are strong Open Source believers.

They believe that the crowd is key to the mass hacking plague we are experiencing, and that Open Source is the best lever to create a community and have people contribute their knowledge to the project, ultimately make it better and more secure.

The solution recently turned 1.x, introducing a major architectural change: the introduction of a local REST API.

GTW { for composition} >> SyncNotes + {editing and preview} >> AceMark {double check} and Noto {for filing} .


Then of course into writeFreely, to post on write.as, until I get vivejournal.com running writefreely, and then yeah..There’s my mastodon project too.. One day at a time..


  • GTW is the only editor with a trackball (it’s really well executed), has an incredible file-manager, and does a lot of export options. It’s unique.

  • SyncNotes+ has been dead simple and extremely responsive for years.

  • AceMark has great themes and a lovely template engine (you can write your own css)..

  • Noto is gorgeous and has great preview and is an up and coming polished offering without being overly complicated, but still does a lot.


Some additional notes:


  • Editorial is outdated and nearly useless,
  • 1Writer is pretty nice but misses a lot of marks.

  • Type is pretty nice but still an up and commer.

  • OneMarkDown and MWeb are basically the same app, a new engine in OneMarkDown and an old abandoned buggy as hell concept of a static site generator in MWeb.

  • iAWriter is fantastic but feels very sloppy to use but is quite feature rich if not a bit behind..

Lastly,

  • Drafts is WAY too complicated, but extremely powerful; Although the sliding bar and interface generally make me want to tear out my hair and become a monk.

hope this helps *someone better spend their money and less of their life getting pissed off at iApps.

:) #iOS #writing and #markdown editor #review

I omitted things like Bear, Ulysses, Wordsmith, Evernote, and Writemator – Because they are a different category entirely and my brain does not enjoy that type of application workflow...

In general they are “too pretty,” and “too symbolic,” ultimately too hard to be efficient with, which is ultimately extremely frustrating, and counter-productive.

Runner up: “Mettle.” It would be a half-way point, between symbolic and power user type interfaces and workflow, but it gets disqualified because I managed to crash it three times in under an hour. With semi-total data loss.

Four tenths of a cent. 😁🙏🏽🌶🔭

Good morning !

Just got my first micropayment from blogging.

___ >”0.04¢ little man, put that four hundredths of a cent in my hand.” – to paraphrase Jason Mewes of the film ”Clerks.”

LOL, this is interesting. I need an audience and such now.

Looking for in between stupid simple without features, and drafts pro which is a burgeoning powerful monster but too much faking work to use on the regular for anything other than an archival of “things that have been done and the crazy powerful scripting and automation.”

Here’s a sample .md created with “ace mark” :


Ta da , hehe! lol

This is ace mark

It seems a reasonably competent editor. It’s not great. But it could be. > Still it’s more intuitive than most.

Swipe down or up from the markdown row to dismiss would be Much-better than a gesture.


Here is a h3 heading

![Image alt](https://www.trueform.org/Favicon.

But it died because there is no setting to not launch safari while editing a link on shortish press.

We are done here. Good luck hehe!

Oh but it can be used to build themed templates PDFs or as a local website creator- so there is THAT strength in largess.

The themes are pretty as well but limited. I like the green one and the blue one. The solar used misses the contrasty mark.
