In-reply-to » @lyse flawed is the right word, no harsh at all. Good reading, and thanks for supporting the possibility of convincing @prologic to switch to a database! :-D :-P

I really don’t understand why I’m getting such a hard time from y’all over my choice of database(s) and data storage/retrieval solutions in general 😢 Why? 🤔

In-reply-to » 👋 Sheesh! I’ve been gone for a good while. Lots of stuff going on between work, new sleep schedule for the kiddo and other personal things. How’s everyone going over here?

@screem@twtxt.net Hey hey! 👋 INce to see you again and good to know you’re doing okay 👌 – We should maybe catch-up for a beer or something since we’re now geographically close to one another 🙏

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I guess unusual garbage in places, where one wouldn’t expect it, is a problem everywhere. Still find it hard to understand, as even if you don’t care about nature and animals living there, in any way, it still takes a lot of effort, to bring the furniture, car parts and heaps of other junk there.

I also doubt the average perso doing this, is carrying washing machines into forests by hand and when you’re already driving around with it, it’s probably simpler, to just dispose of it legally. In many cases it might also be closer, or get you a bit of money, for the scrap metal.

In-reply-to » They say AI is now filling up the content of the Internet with gaslighting posts from humans who do not exist and tweets from machines who make up stuff. Nowadays we discuss things with bots, not humans.

@off_grid_living@twtxt.net No problem. The dataset the site searches, is only comprised of images, with very detailed text descriptions attached to them, as that’s something all images used for AI training need. Therefore I think this site works more based on those descriptions, than it does recognizing the text on the images themselves. 🤔

In-reply-to » @bender @prologic I've went further down - sometimes to seek something I've read and caught my attention at the time, othertimes to reference old threads in new ones. In this context, nothing is "too old".

@bender@twtxt.net fetched on demand, implies some kind of client-side JavaScript; so probably not.

However, there is another way that we talked on IRC last night…

Which again leads to searching and indexing the archive 😆

@jlj@twt.nfld.uk You did very good! Crazy how much you gathered in such a small amount of time. It’s sad to see how people are just disposing of their rubbish like that. @thecanine@twtxt.net Not at all. Unfortunately, that sounds familiar. You won’t believe what we dig up each year with the scouts at world cleanup day or our own forest cleaning event.

In-reply-to » @lyse lovely trek, and a long one indeed! Quite a bit to see on those photos. You got goats fighting, a picture perfect in the middle of nowhere (frame and all), a church, seemingly vast parches of land, snow, ice, a castle, a village, greenery, etc., etc., etc. Wow, it fees as if you walked through different seasons too! Well done, mate, well done.

@bender@twtxt.net Thank you very much! :-) Only blue sky and more sun would have made for even nicer scenery. But I don’t want to complain at all.

In-reply-to » Yesterdays hike was something around 22-25 kilometers in five and a half hours dead on. I encountered some very steep and slippery sections. It was exhausting but great fun, though. Sorry about the number of photos.

In-reply-to » Media I repurpose the original steps to lead into the new verandah floor level, the concrete pad is still to be placed underneath.

Lyse, that is the camera quality, the timber is hardwood Eucalyptus, either Yellow StringyBark, or IronBark, both very long enduring timbers commonly used in steps.
