Defeating Google's ReCaptcha using Google's own voice API :blobeyes:

An unexpected feature of my new-ish apartment is that a few times a year, the 36 tenants of the building are invited to dinner at a restaurant at the housing corporation's expense. I'm surprised the housing corporation doesn't just pocket the money instead. I wonder if this is normal, as I have never lived as a tenant before.

Me: "It's time to take the train home to Funen"
Meanwhile on train line:

Heck I'm curious if it will even be able to collect screenshots and clipboard data from xorg. I'm even tempted to run this thing under Wayland.

My university has a proprietary exam monitor that I have to run, which uses the long deprecated Java Webstart. This thing could be as old as from 2006, and the UI hardly works.

I wonder if it is time to finally exercise my GDPR rights for insight and erasure. Ironically, this monitor is managed by the local data protection agency.

I have mixed feelings about the holidays. Even though I am visiting my parent's house and doing almost nothing productive all day, I still feel stressed.

Maybe I just have trouble winding down from self-employed work, or perhaps it is from seeing my mom working her ass off both at work and at home.

I sure am happy that I got to the train station early when going home for Christmas. The terminals on the platforms to check-in one's RFC travel card were unresponsive. I had to go to a vending machine instead, and later directed another 7-ish confused strangers as well.

Why does this have to happen on one of Denmark's biggest transit days?

Drinking free beer for the third day in a row, each from 3 different organizations. That's a pretty interesting coincidence considering that these 3 events are unrelated.

I'm tempted to get into functional programming. I mostly work with , which has given me a bit of a taste for .

Any recommendations on guides and languages?

I'm tempted to get a server to act as a dedicated docker daemon. My work involves a of docker containers to just run in the background, and they are rather slow to start.

It's annoying to deal with SSH tunnels though. I wonder if there is a more elegant approach to connecting the two machines.

@camellirite always a pleasure to share my taste in music :blobhappy:

I wish I had half as many fedi followers as I have Discord friend requests

I really hate my university's multiple choice exams with a passion. For instance, I was just given the question "Can an abstract Java class be instantiated?".

The correct answer according to the test is no, but in reality abstract classes are just instantiated via their subclasses. I shouldn't have to think like the teacher to do a test.

I got really bored so I wrote a simple dithering tool in Kotlin. It is surprising how little loss you get when reducing an image to 8 colors. Source code:

Visiting my parents and they have a hecking draft beer dispenser :blobcatsurprised:

Fre_d boosted

Black Friday deals on ALL KDE SOFTWARE! 100% OFF! (also tomorrow, and the day after that, and the next day, and the next one after that too, and ...)

I am both tempted and frightened at the same time

I might actually need this...
