As part of my ongoing foray into turning a CPU into a "heater that does meaningful work" I wrote a little script for throttling a process — in my case, [email protected] — based on CPU temp.

Now I need to get a networked thermostat set up to drive it all.

Any Linux users with [email protected] experience? I'm wondering if there's a way to throttle [email protected] — or any process, really — based on CPU or GPU temperature.

I see that Windows users often recommend eFMer TThrottle, but sadly there's no Linux version.

@cypnk Well, baba ghanoush isn't going to do anything awful to me if I don't vote for it.

Boring desktop Tuesday! Don't blame for this boring theme, this is all me. ;p

Finally getting a chance to play after replaying the first two. Surprisingly it runs perfectly fine on through .

This is both a great little update _and_ a heartwarming little story!

@immychan I can fully understand a nerd or hacker setting up a listening device that they themselves control fully, but it surprises me a bit when they use these ones that are controlled by untrustworthy outside entities.

ToTok, the chat app that was recently exposed as a United Arab Emirates spy tool (and is now banned from Apple and Google app stores) is on a campaign to convince you its app is ok. This is the quid-pro-quo email I received seeking to pay me to promote it. nytimes.com/2019/12/22/us/poli

A more in-depth look at the FDLP.gov defacement.

Went through a short history of the site, fingerprinted plugin versions, and reviewed a probable attack vector.

Another great thing about libraries: librarians!

Librarians are interfaces between you and anything you could ever possibly want to know, ever. "Sure," you might be thinking, "so's my smartphone," but if librarians could be replaced with Google, don't you think it would've happened already?

If you've got a passing fancy in something, by all means DuckDuckGo it. If you REALLY want to know about a thing, ask a librarian. They have special powers beyond just searching.
