Need to check if “PrivacyNator” is already out: a local TensorFlowJS app that blurs your screen when you are not behind it

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/11/16

Interesting app that hopefully does get published: “PrivacyNator”.

So I need to check if anything new has turned up on [Wayback] “PrivacyNator” – Google Search.

The horrors of HTML email where there CSS

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/11/16

[] Kat Maddox on Twitter: “Who’s the CEO of emails I need to talk to him… “:

This is why dreamweaver still exists.

[] Kat Maddox on Twitter: “You don’t need a time machine to go back to the past. You just need to try to write HTML in emails. If I have to nest one more table, I’ll have gone back far enough to be able to warn people about the dot com bubble. Fuck it. I’m writing this newsletter in markdown”

Markdown with an HTML generator actually is quite a good way to get HTML emails going.

Another route is [Wayback] Foundation for Emails | A Responsive Email Framework from ZURB.

Oh remember this: [] StuAngel on Twitter: “rule of thumb “the mail clients are about 5 years behind in HTML support” – that was like 10 years ago and they have never gotten any better…”

unix/linux: using paste to turn separate lines into a comma separated list

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/11/16

Never to old to learn new things: I was totally unaware of the GNU paste tool that is available on virtually all unix/Linux/BSD core installs.

Thanks [WayBack] zeppelin for answering this question at [WayBack] linux – Turning separate lines into a comma separated list with quoted entries – Unix & Linux Stack Exchange:

You can add quotes with sed and then merge lines with paste, like that:

sed 's/^\|$/"/g'|paste -sd, -

If you are running a GNU coreutils based system (i.e. Linux), you can omit the trailing '-'.

If you input data has DOS-style line endings (as @phk suggested), you can modify the command as follows:

sed 's/\r//;s/^\|$/"/g'|paste -sd, -

Now I can get a comma separated list of for instance ssh available mac algorithms:

# ssh -Q mac | paste -sd, -
