Bind mounts. Always use bind mounts for data you care about, otherwise the "managed by docker" volumes are fated to be forgotten.

It won't be your file structure as the file tree is managed by paperless, but at least using bind mounts you can easily navigate files and back them up independently or docker and paperless.

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

yes, a bind mount / bind volume is when a volume is explicitly mapped to a location in your local storage rather than managed by docker and likely owned by root.

Firefox 123.0 changed DNS settings?

After installing Firefox 123.0 I ran a Mullvad Connection check https://mullvad.net/en/check and found I had a DNS leak. Turns out that Firefox had changed the settings under "DNS over HTTPS" so that my Mullvad DNS wasn't being used any more. After changing this setting to "off" in Firefox, the Mullvad check passed.

My Firefox DNS over HTTPS settings are as they were before the upgrade. Maybe this is Flatpak-specific?

OTOH there are captchas that you just need to check a box today. It boggles my mind this is not more widespread.

"No, let's make our users play a fucking puzzle for a minute before granting them access".

That's not true. Look how invisible recaptcha works.

I'd like to try that too, but unfortunately I'm over 18.

Similarly, other users told the outlet that the AI hallucinated wrong answers or miscalculated spreadsheets. AI experts, including The Wharton School professor, Ethan Mollick accused Copilot of making bizarre suggestions for weekend meetings.

It seems these users never used GPT

Google is following their lead with Gemini, it seems. What is wrong with them?

Sweet. I'm pairing Heliboard with Sayboard for dictation.

https://f-droid.org/packages/com.elishaazaria.sayboard/

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

That's a way of saying I'm using both, they're not integrated.

When you install Sayboard, open it as a normal app, enable it in the settings following their instructions, then download the VOSK model following their guidance.

Heliboard should have a microphone btn that will open the default voice keyboard you enabled in the previous step.

worse? What did I miss - it was never good to start with. Alexa, Siri, Cortana, Google Assistant - all they were ever used for was set timers and play songs.

AI is the only hope to make them marginally more useful than they are.

I think this happened to me once when the assistant was trying to use another clock app than the native one.

I read 128GB SSDs and thought "who cares"

impressive.

that's for enterprise use; also plenty of uses in a data-driven world to run predictive models on.

Well, they already made it very clear to everyone back in May that the content created by the community does not belong to the community. Anyone still using that dump deserves to be explored.

I used PowerDeleteSuite back in June.

It's private and not paid like Redact. I'd consider editing the comments instead of deleting them to spread the word/reason of deletion.

I think beginners spend too much time and effort on the "choose a distro" quest. Choosing a DE is far more important than that.

sudo crontab -e ?

edit: I just read the "I know I could have just edited /etc/crontab and run my script as root"

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

I'd also change the owner of /path/to/my/script to root, avoiding the open path to a privilege escalation.

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

I'd just sudo chown root:root /path/to/my/script and sudo chmod 744 /path/to/my/script

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

because it’s owned by the user

...and executed by root. Meaning anyone with access to this user can have access to root by modifying the script that root will run for them.

changing the owner of the home path to root

just chown the script itself.

I hate that quick action bar for toggling WiFi, Bluetooth etc. I used to be able to have 6 control buttons there, now they take twice the space they used to and only fit 4 quick actions. It feels like I'm using a toy phone sometimes.

I can't recommend OnlyOffice enough. I just did a test repeatedly killing the application and the document is recovered with the default settings.

despite everyone reverting it back to double click

Says who? I'm still using single click and won't go back. This is a very different choice than having autosave on by default.

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

I'm feeling old right now, thx

I even impulsively hit Ctrl+S when writing comments on Lemmy once in a while

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

it is and it isn’t

It is. Single/double click behavior is a matter of preference. Autosave on is a measure to mitigate risk. Very different "UX" choices.

Edit: just adding context that the clicking behavior on executables is defined by another setting on Dolphin.

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

It doesn't, that's another setting. By default Dolphin asks confirmation before running anything with mouse clicks. Also you can double click just as impulsively as single clicking, so it wouldn't even be a good safeguard.

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

Which is why I say they’re both UX decisions.

yet very different - binning them into the same category is not helpful. Single click as default is ok, autosave off as default is probably not.

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

risk mitigation definitely comes before preference, whether you call them both UX or not

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

you’re still refusing to acknowledge that they’re both ux problems

I'm not - I'm saying calling them both UX problems is unhelpful when one is clearly more important than the other. In fact, single clicks by default does not even rank as a "UX problem", it's preference and habit.

If you're unable to differentiate what's an actual problem from what's mere user preference, you're no better at judging what's worth putitng time into than the open source contributors you're pointing at.

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

Naming something accurately does not make the observation helpful. You're the one writing nonsense.

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

Computers should never do things, especially with important documents, without the user telling them to

L take. Computers have always done thousands of things in the background. Autosave does not mean "overwrite the original file".

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

Not this one, every one. The only difference is that they bother to put this info on the label.

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

you don’t even need to think about letsencrypt

Do you know if it's just as friction-less to have a self signed cert up with Caddy for internal use? I was using Nginx PM recently and had the need to serve https but I can't use letsencrypt because it's not public-facing. Nginx PM only has letsencrypt as an option.

I wish there was a checkbox that just deployed a self-signed cert without bothering with the details (it's 2024 ffs, HTTPS should be 1 click away, whether that's self-signed or not).

9.9.9.9 has twice the latency for me. Why pick quad9 over, say, 1.1.1.2?

eager_eagle ,
@eager_eagle@lemmy.world avatar

I'm always on VPN, so latencies add up.

dig +stats @1.1.1.1 www.google.com | grep '[\d]+ msec'

gives me 10-20ms using a nearby vpn server

dig +stats @9.9.9.9 www.google.com | grep '[\d]+ msec'

gets me 30-50 ms, and not rarely >100ms.
