    I'm also a fan of Odenkirk from Mr Show

    Please explain.

    I tried watching Mr Show. I … couldn't. It was bad. Like horrendously bad. Did I just watch it wrong or, what am I missing?

    I'm a fan of both Cross and Odenkirk. I would have loved to see them together.

    "Just use FastAPI" is my answer nowadays, but this guide looks pretty fair and unbiased.

    That said, I don't think Bottle is worth considering, and imo Flask is strictly worse than FastAPI. The choice is only between DRF and FastAPI.

    Here's a help article: https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000479507-Managing-Cloudflare-Origin-CA-certificates

    Use Origin CA certificates to encrypt traffic between Cloudflare and your origin web server.

    To ensure greater convenience, security, and performance, Cloudflare recommends an Origin CA certificate over a self-signed certificate or a certificate purchased from a Certificate Authority. With an Origin CA certificate, you can use Full and Full(strict) SSL/TLS encryption mode in the Cloudflare SSL/TLS app without first purchasing a certificate from a Certificate Authority to install at your origin web server.

    The key thing to understand is that an origin certificate is issued and signed by Cloudflare, and is trusted by Cloudflare. If you were to use such a certificate at the edge, your web browser would cry foul and say "Who the fuck is Cloudflare?". They are not a trusted CA.

    Another key thing to understand is that origin certs are older than Lets Encrypt; they come from a time where, if you wanted to have full end to end encryption with cloudflare at the edge, you'd have to purchase a cert and install it on your server. They're a better user experience than this.

    Anyway, lots of CF functionality relies on CF itself being able to read your content and replace it, such as auto-minify, various compression overrides, etc. Now that I'm saying this out loud I realize I might have misled you saying that E2EE was even possible with CF; I don't know if there's a case outside of enterprise where they let you use your own cert end to end on proxied endpoints.

    I've lost a couple of people who came out as anti-vax. I found that I had zero patience for that shit; In each case I calmly and plainly told them I disagreed, and I simply stopped talking to them.

    No big fight. No going out with a bang. Just a "huh, this person is just not worth talking to right now".

    The way I'm phrasing it might make it sound like their position made me feel like this about them but truthfully, it's the other way around: the way I felt about them made me not want to bother when a major philosophical disagreement came up. In other words, this only came up with people I didn't care much about in the first place. Turns out, none of the people I connected deeply with are anti-vax, and there's probably a good reason for that.

    If one of them were, would I be able to disagree with them and retain my friendship? Yeah, I'm certain of it. I'm very good friends with people I clash on in much more significant ways.

    With an origin cert, Cloudflare decrypts and re-encrypts using a different cert to serve to the end user, so it's not e2ee.

    The article started off weird but ended up being very good, and the title here doesn't really do it justice. This is insight into the meaning of consent in the mind of someone who has had years of experience as a sex worker, and exercises that allowed her to train to be more expressive about it. It's fascinating.

    That was awesome, thank you for posting! I had no idea that game show existed. Hah, that Joe Biden cameo. And Penn and Teller!! "Where in time is Carmen" had a very catchy theme song, too. Boy, 90s tv was something unique. I sometimes wonder how shows like these would fare today. And production and distribution is so much more accessible now; Youtube would be a good platform for publishing them.

    Well! It's been 10 hours, I'm having chills and the fever is slowly starting, right on cue. I was pretty well-rested this time around, so I guess tomorrow will suck. We will see!

    Can be said about anything.

    You essentially have to predict future problems and find potential solutions to get a result without flaws.

    For example, an unintended consequence of machine learning is often that these systems are fed biased data based on our own flaws which results in automating racism (see this Vox video for an explanation).

    It's utterly absurd to generalize the failures of machine learning to failures of technology as a whole. It's akin to saying "Lie detectors suck, why should I trust my plumber to know how to fix my faucet?"

    The two things that inspired me as a kid were my gameboy color and my tamagotchi. Not saying those are it, but if you're looking for simplicity, there might be something to these old school handhelds.
