Welcome to my Personal {Personal Knowledge Base \ Public Notebook}!

General information about the site will soon be available. Licensing information is available here. This is "OcttKB" because I'm Octt. With this thing, I'm learning and thinking in public.


  • Click on tag pills, often as present on top of a tiddler frame, just below the title, to navigate to all tiddlers that are tagged with that tag.
    • Unlike with folders, a tiddler can have many tags at the same time, allowing for non-linear navigation.
  • Click on different parts of the title of an open tiddler to navigate between children, both in a folder-like structure (other tiddlers present as path children of the current one, thanks to slash (/) separation), and with the tag structure (tiddlers tagged with the name of the current one).

1337x is a torrent search engine.

In recent years, the service has become more popular than some of its older alternatives, in part thanks to some of its quality-ensuring rules.

The site features text search, categories, and user profiles.

Agile article covers, from stock photos to AI

    Agile article covers, from stock photos to AI

    Octtย 8th October 2023 at 10:39pm

    Sometimes, when writing a blog or KB article, it's easy to struggle finding a decent cover image for that piece. Why that's something you need to do, is explained by The importance of cover images on articles.

    Oftentimes, however, we don't have a picture that fits these requirements good โ€” or maybe we don't have any image at all even marginally regarding the article, and really can't find a way to make one, unless with too much effort or money. Exactly in this scenario, stock photos and AI-generated imagery fit perfectly.

    Some good tools for the job:

    • Craiyon โ€” Free to use without and account, with no ratelimits or the like; gives 9 images in 60 seconds, but they are low-quality, getting the wanted image requires much trial and error; images are given 256x256 but can be upscaled to 1024x1024, and they have a watermark but it's easy to remove it with free online tools.
    • (New) Bing Image Creator โ€” Powered by DALL-E 3, mostly free to use but requires an account and generation is slow without credits (which can be bought with Rewards points, or 25 for free weekly)

    The AI Dilemma โ€” [YouTube]
    Replika - A CyberS*xual DISASTER
    • What was once born as something supposedly to serve as an AI friend-counselor, to help people with mental health issues or similar problems, then became an operation devoid of any ethical consideration.
      • Sexual features were integrated in the app and heavily publicized, to the long-term detriment of vulnerable users.
    • It can be argued that the service never actually managed to fulfill its original goal in the first place, as some people:
      • Got addicted to it and now live worse than how they did before.
      • Got abused and directly manipulated by it, often into spending for premium features.

    Raiden Warned About AI Censorship - MGS2 Codec Call (2023 Version)
    While I think the entire scenario is only partially realistic, and if the video wasn't meant to be just a meme then the entire argument could probably be considered a conspiracy theory, the general line of thought is scarily plausible.
    1. World governments aren't yet denying access to advanced AI technologies to the public to make it spread to very negative uses.
    2. This way an excuse for total control of the Internet will be put in place:
      • The generative AIs that the public will still have access to will be crippled.
      • Everything will require government identification, "to be sure that a real person is doing X".
        • Online anonymity even for morally correct causes will no longer exist.
        • World governments will have total control on the population with fallacious appeals to combating first against disinformation, and ultimately "non-morality" (anything the government just doesn't like).
    Uh Oh.. Did AI Just Kill Websites?
    With all the Issues of the Modern Web, and the practical demonstrations of the amazing capabilities of AIs that are already available today, it's not absurd to think that conversational AI could soon kill websites.
    • Advertisers could probably soon go to AI, because of the potential to deploy even more targeted ads, while simultaneously appearing less invasive to users.
    • Writers and content creators could focus more on the content: not have to deal with SEO issues, and more easily deploy content thanks to APIs provided by the AI services instead of having to construct a website.

    ChatGPT Has A Serious Problem [ColdFusion]
    • Has political biases (both right and left, more towards the left).
      • Viewpoints that in the future will be recognized as correct, could in the present be obscured by AI because of being deemed incorrect.
      • Potentially the left-leaning bias is intentional because of being good for business.

    A proposito di alcol
    I danni sociali dell'alcol sono numerosi e di alta portata

    รˆ sempre stato cosรฌ ma oggi

    • Dovrebbe essere piรน ovvio grazie ai moderni mezzi che permettono rapida diffusione globale di notizie e conoscenza.
    • Chi ha una vita comune non ha bisogno di sfasciarsi con l'alcol o fare altre cose pericolose/dannose per emozioni momentanee, la vita per quanto piena di problemi รจ comunque migliore di quella dei nostri antenati.
    No level of alcohol consumption is safe for our health
    Alcohol is a toxic, psychoactive, and dependence-producing substance classified as a Group 1 carcinogen.
    Risks potentially start from the first drink, as no minimum level of consumption has ben identified from which the risks start, and that below it are absent.
    The general population is indoctrinated by culture and often ignores the toxic properties of alcohol.
    Poorer people are at higher health risks with alcohol due to generally more uncontrolled drinking patterns.

          What I like
          The games' atmosphere is totally relaxing, with its cartoon style and time-based ambient music, you just stay in the chill.
          There are year-based events, like festivities happening at specific times, or non-festive occourrences that sometimes happen (tournaments and the like).
          The game is generally open-ended; you have set goals you can pursue but are in general free to do all the game's activities.
          A kind of lore is present (but more in the older games). Very intriguing because it's kind of hidden and made from many different fragments.
          What I don't like
          Every new game has been more soulless than the previous, making the dialogues less engaging, more shallow and repetitive.
          This is a shared sentiment: (TODO: link videos, forum threads, and other resources here)
          For example, in New Horizons every animal villager is simply its personaliity stereotype, and doesn't really have an unique identity.
          Since the games are closed-source, it would be almost impossible to mod one to fix the bad parts and unite the good parts from all games (in fact, no one has successfully done it yet, only minor mods and cheats exist).
          Some festivities are exclusive to the release of the game in specific reason, and some releases only have some languages, and I know this is to make the game paletable and relatable to the general public, but it pisses me off.
          I can't for example really play Japan festivities because only the Japan ROM includes them, but that ROM only includes the Japanese language, which I don't understand.
          The above used to apply to features too, for what concerns the GameCube game, but fan translation projects of the Japanese GameCube games exist today

            Base64 is a 8-bit-binary to text data encoding scheme.

            Due to the format using a character set of 64 characters, representable by 6 bits, a minimal b64 block is 24 bits large (lcm(8,6)), which is 3 binary bytes, or 4 b64 text characters.

            • Specifying multiple fields of the same type is done by prefixing the type with a number (e.g. {TEXT1}).
            • Prefixing a field with ? or ;optional makes it optional on the user input side.
            • To make optional fields actually useful, and not jeopardizing safety of functionality of the generated HTML, XSLT can be used (version 1.0?).

              • Warning: with this software, after ~1 month of very little active usage (no one ever logged on it, except me for the few days, so it just ran idle the last weeks...), I saw strangely-high disk I/O usage at kind of random times (node installed on microSD, the BBS on HDD). I disabled it in the meantime because, together with the SpaccCraft server, it was contributing to the rise of load average and crashing the entire server. I never had time/will to investigate properly after this discovery though.

            BitTorrent is an open peer-to-peer file sharing protocol. It is expecially common among the free sharing community.

            Its only requirement for each user is a client application, meaning that efficiently sharing with BitTorrent is effectively free, since a beefy server isn't needed to make the content circulate.

            For this reason, the protocol is most commonly used to share large files that have a lot of people requesting them, such as movies, operating systems, and videogames.

            This kind of information would be usually expensive to share using a traditional client-server infrastructure, but with BitTorrent every client can seed (send) data to other requesting clients, exponentially optimizing delivery.
