Today, while car shopping to replace another vehicle, my cars water pump fails. Ironic, i know. So im stranded, Call some friends to hopefully tow me, but nothing. So I start thinking about mechanics. Call a few and i get some ballpark quotes around $700 and that doesn't include the tow to get it there. So i finally decide im going to fix it myself. I call a tow truck to tow it to my house ($130) got the water pump for $50 and the belt for $20 and a long evening and $200 later im mobile again!😃

Probably old news to some but this is shit. I won't be buying a OnePlus as a future replacement now.
Here are my thoughts on the recent announcement of Invidious shutting down soon. I also go over what this means for both Invidious and FreeTube in the future. If you have any questions regarding this, please let me know.
Omar Roth is stepping down as maintainer of the Invidious project and the invidio.us instance will be shutting down September 1st, 2020.
It seems to need programming contributors.
It was recently announced that Invidious will be shutting down in September. I don't know for sure what will happen to the project. I'll be making an announcement on what this means for FreeTube as soon as I have time.

I don't get the #youtube community. They keep talking about how bad the censorship is and how terrible the platform is in general. They ask for an alternative and when you recommend them one of 6 alternative platforms they refuse to switch. They can't even make smallest of sacrifices for more creative freedom.

Hi everyone, newbie here.
I'm a IT Pro for a living, but in my spare time I mess with tech, have a growing interest in privacy related tech, spend far too much time thinking about my football team (Bradford City) and have a 3 year old to keep me young :)
Just getting my head around Mastodon so you probably won't hear too much from me to start with ;)
US wants to make Math not work when it's inconvenient for law enforcement:
> The terms "device manufacturer," "operating system provider," and "provider of remote computing service," apply only to firms with unit sales over one million annually or one million customers/subscribers.
So #Signal would have been able to avoid it if it was a federated network of independent service providers.

maybe someone has an.idea.on what to.do to fix this issue... I fired up a vpn (nord) and it used 10Mbps of my 15Mbps connection as overhead.. this doesn't sound right..I tested this multiple times with different settings.
My pc is a ryzen 2700x and 32 GB ram.. i should have no issues.. Granted, I have not tested on my linux box.. This is on Windows 10 which I hate, but have to use for work.
Fawkes is a new anti-facial recognition tool from University of Chicago Sand Lab. It subtly alters faces in images so that that they cannot be correctly classified by common machine learning classifiers, while leaving them legible to human viewers.
These small changes - adversarial preturbations - merge features from other peoples' pictures with your own to cause classifiers to misfire, mistaking pictures of you for pictures of your "masking" target.
I forgot to actually include what i wanted! oops! Im looking for ideas and resources for how to learn to do this. If i could look at something similar and have it explained that would be awesome! Im just not sure where to start with this.
