IRC channel logs


back to list of logs

<rekado_>civodul: twitter tells me again that we’re being suspicious, because logging in is very suspicious.
<civodul>rekado_: yeah, i just logged in, and it told me it was suspicious
*civodul feels suspected
<rekado_>I’m so tired of solving captchas…
***rekado_ is now known as rekado
<civodul>rekado: i sympathize!
<rekado>I wonder if there’s something weird about our icecat or chromium builds
<rekado>I’m forced to join Zoom calls regularly and *every* time I need to identify buses, chimneys, motorcycles, buses…
<rekado>this can’t be the experience everybody else has. Or else they would all be using Jitsi.
<zimoun>rekado: I only used Zoom once and I do not remember. Maybe it happens if you do not install the App and instead use Zoom via the browser; because I remember that the once I used it, I “installed“ stuff.
<rekado>it tries to push the application hard
<rekado>it doesn’t even show you the option to join with the browser until you have refused to install the application *twice*
<rekado>then you have to solve captchas
<rekado>and then it asks you to accept their ‘privacy’ terms
<rekado>if you disagree it tells you that you can’t join the call if you disagree.
<rekado>after 15+ clicks you can finally join the call and then click some more to hear anything, mute yourself, and enable the camera
<zimoun>it looks like an string incentive to install the App :-)
***sebbu2 is now known as sebbu
<civodul>a remote colleague of mine works on
<civodul>(.pro makes it sound fancy already)
<civodul>Conda + Docker + Singularity
<civodul>what else?
<civodul>"best practices" to create containers:
<zimoun>I enjoy how Bio folks append “bio” to everything. It is not container but biocontainer, not mechanics but biomechanics, not informatics but bioinformatics, not chemistry but biochemistry, etc. biopython, biojulia, bioconductor… Well, they are like Bioman ;-)
<zimoun>Ah not Conda but bioconda too
<civodul>PurpleSym: do you have commit rights?
<PurpleSym>civodul: To Guix proper? No.
<civodul>looking at .guix-authorizations i'd say no, but i no longer recognize all the nicknames
<PurpleSym>Does it make sense to apply? I was hoping for CI and automation, but that still seems far away.
<civodul>sure, it makes sense
<civodul>CI is here, but automation around patches is... yeah
<civodul>cbaines has made great progress though
<PurpleSym>Okay, I’ll see if I can scrap together three members who vouch for me. Will you be the first?
<civodul>yup, gladly so!
<PurpleSym>Excellent, thanks! :)
<rekado>zimoou: :)
<civodul>aaah, here's biorekado!
