@movq It's very useful. I always start my music player in a tmux session so I can SSH in, attach it, and control the music from another computer. It's also handy for letting long-running tasks on a remote machine continue in the background even if the SSH connection is broken.

@prologic Monero has stayed a little more stable than Bitcoin but it's still a cryptocurrency and it's still going to fluctuate quite a bit. It also uses proof-of-work algorithm so it still consumes quite a bit of electricity. I think the value of being able to send any amount of money, any time of the day, to anyone on the planet in 20 minutes (appears in 2 minutes, spendable in 20) **completely privately** with near-zero transaction fees exceeds the drawbacks.

Unfortunately, the characteristics that make it useful as a global currency for day-to-day transactions also make it useful for people doing illicit things. Many exchanges, fearing regulatory action, won't accept Monero for the same reason they won't accept Bitcoin from a mixer.

Monero shouldn't be banned just because people use it for bad things. It's just a tool and it can be used for good or evil. It's the same reason countries use when they ban or restrict Tor usage.

> Monero, a privacy-focused cryptocurrency, is not illegal globally but is banned in some countries due to its potential use in illicit activities. Countries like Dubai, Japan, South Korea, and Australia have either banned or recommended a ban on privacy coins like Monero.23 Oct 2023

@prologic That sounds great. The only other container-level hosting service I've heard of is PikaPods which seems much more managed than cas.run would be. It has customizable tier-based pricing and the minimum specs are 1/4 of a CPU core, 256 MB of memory, and "about 100 MB" of storage for $1/mo which seems awfully steep compared to a low-cost VPS. I don't know if PikaPods offers an IPv4 reverse proxy or not.

Monero uses cryptography to make transactions anonymous and the coins completely fungible. With most cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, the transactions associated with an address are public and you can trace those coins all the way back to their origin. This means that not all coins are the same. For example, some exchanges won't accept Bitcoin that comes from a mixer because they assume you're doing something untoward.

With Monero, it's not possible to trace any transactions with just an address. People can't see what you're spending your money on or where your coins came from. Transaction fees using Monero are also very small. It's less than the equivalent of 1 cent in USD.

Minuscule transaction fees and anonymity make it the best choice in my opinion for buying goods and services online. Monero is much more like "digital cash" than Bitcoin, which I think is better described as "digital gold".

Ah, interesting. Ui, that can hold some water. Certainly looks like a water level gauge to me. Maybe a precaution for a hundred-year flood or something like that. Or is there a dam nearby? Could be a facility to reduce damage in case it breaks.

@prologic I might have mentioned this already but you might want to look into MoneroPay for payment processing when you get to that point with cas.run. It's a completely self-hosted backend service for receiving and tracking Monero payments and it's written in Go.

I took advantage of the last sunny, but also 25°C hot day and hiked in the woods. It was so much more pleasant in the forest than out in the sun. The wind could have been a long stronger with that heat. I was completely soaked.

At one point I thought I better grab my camera out of my backpack, so whenever something comes up, I'm ready. But I was too lazy and thought, well, I just wait until there is a nice subject and keep going instead. No joke, ten meters further I came across two squirrels. A red and a brown one, sitting on a tree at just one and three meters height two meters away from me. If I only had unpacked my bloody cam a few seconds ago! I just watched them sit on the tree and then tried to slowly strip my backpack and grad the cam. It was still booting up when they decided it was enough sitting around and climbed higher. What a silly move on my end, damn.

I tried to improvise some Lyse Street View, but felt really uncomfortable to photograph other people's houses. Somehow my cam produced sooo many blurred shots on the way up still away from the village, it's unbelievable. I scrapped nearly the entire project. Only very few survived. There were heaps of people on the mountain summit, so I quickly left again.

Looking forward to next week's rain and temperature drop to 16°C or even 8°C.

@movq You could always keep it running in a detached tmux session and attach it when you see the spike. Processes that were recently using the netwotk stay in the list for 10 or 15 seconds after they're finished so you don't have to catch it in the act.

@lyse It’s probably better for them if they’re shy. 😅 But yeah, if they’re used to humans, they won’t run away so easily. At least the ducks won’t – the rails/moorhens do. 🤔

Ahh, I remember those Asperg shots. 😅👍

That whole area with the tunnels and basins is *probably* some sort of “retention basin” (Regenrückhaltebecken), with several levels to reduce the flow. There’s almost never a lot of water in there, though. Not sure if this structure just isn’t used anymore or if it’s too dry. There’s also this “pole”, it’s a bit hard to see, though:

https://movq.de/v/dd71ae14a5/a.jpg

Looks like they’re trying to measure the water height (Pegelstand)? The pole is super high and I doubt that any rainfall will ever reach the top of it. 🤔

There you go, multithreading. 🥳

I tested this in QEMU, which luckily supports throttling disk I/O, so I can make sure that scanning the disk actually takes a while.

https://movq.de/v/f714cfebff/pmdusage.mp4

(Still boggles my mind a bit. When OS/2 2.x came out, DOS was still the norm for us and I didn’t even know what multithreading was. I really didn’t appreciate this operating system enough back then – only now.)

@prologic 0.15 to 0.20 USD sounds about right, compared to small VPS’s like those: https://www.netcup.eu/vserver/vps.php

It’s an interesting offer/concept, btw. Lots of minimal software doesn’t require lots of “oomph” and I’d be fine if my VPS was smaller. 🤔

@movq Oh wow, how cool is that?! :-) Ducks over here are quite shy, unfortunately. In Ludwigsburg on the other hand they are very habituated to humans. I was very surprised to see that when visiting a mate. There were a bunch of them laying on the stairs and I tried to keep my distance to not scare them off. Didn't dare to get closer than maybe five meters or so and was super happy that they stayed. That has always been impossible over here. After we proceeded, some tourists came by and stood a meter next to them or so. That was crazy for me to see. :-)

Yeah, walking next to a highway is torture. I try to avoid it as much as possible.

Nice! The third photo looks like a Kneipp basin. What's that round tunnel? I love those moss-covered rocks, they just look so beautiful.

You could get better value for money with a super cheap VPS without IPv4 connectivity but it wouldn't be worth it if you didn't need the extra resources as a VPS wouldn't be practical with such low specs. It would also require significantly more effort on the part of the operator.

I would understand paying a small premium for using the lowest-cost tier, convenience, and especially if you operated a reverse proxy with IPv4 connectivity.

@lyse The ducks aren’t too scared of humans. Great story from the first days of Covid in 2020: There were so few humans out and about that the wildlife began to reclaim its place. Those ducks in particular waddled around near the shops – and one of them even went *into* the super market. 😃 Never seen that before or since.

That path leads to a highway, yeah. Or rather under a highway. 😅 The photo with the graffiti shows a short tunnel, the highway is on top of it. It’s usually annoyingly loud, so I don’t go there often.

@lyse I’m surprised as well. It’s one of those big, clunky laser printers:

https://movq.de/v/8a3495c3c2/

But it’s not “industrial grade”, it was a normal consumer printer and cost about 370€. I changed the black toner once and nothing else. Admittedly, the color toners are “worn out” and don’t give great results anymore, but I can’t be bothered as I hardly print anything in color these days. It might be worth buying replacements *now*, though, before they go out of production. 🤔 It’s already impossible to buy original ones, but there are still 3rd party toners. (Wtf? Was this a super popular model?! 😂)
