My #wordpress install is under attack from bots that are hitting the login page and trying to log in as me and/or inactive contributors from a decade ago. They're not succeeding, but they are causing my usage to go up. Other than reactively blocking the IP addresses, what can I do to stop this?

"Are we being positioned to judge or pity these people? Either paradigm rests uncomfortably, as each is as patronising as the next."

Someone on Twitter mentioned that in some regions of Germany, a common idiom for whenever there's mist in the forest is "The foxes are making coffee", and thought the image was evocative enough for an illustration.

Well, I took the bait! 🦊☕

Grønland--an exceptional ambient composition by Glåsbird, an anonymous modern classical artist (who is possibly from Iceland?). It's the soundtrack for an imagined documentary film exploring the natural beauty of Greenland.

I posted the first piece (Debussy Sonata) from my concert last weekend. The HD camera did work after all. I am amazed at the difference a decent camera makes to the built in stuff on the laptop I had to use for the livestream.

makes me want to bring back HiFi and vinyl, and bin the mp3 :)

I think it's not too much of a waste if I repeat here two simple tricks with #ffmpeg in order to upload audio as video to mastodon:

1) test-tv image/animation:

ffmpeg -f lavfi -i testsrc -i AUDIOFILE -shortest OUTPUT.webm

2) album cover or similar:

ffmpeg -loop 1 -i IMAGE.png -i AUDIOFILE -s 200x200 -shortest OUTPUT.webm

* with -s WWWxHHH you can adjust the size/resol. of the video

* instead of webm you can safely use mp4 as output extension - it will create an mp4 with x264/aac codecs

"Kick it!" - new single track from me on .

(Warning: It's got BEATS!) ;)

Do you know why meditation is so effective?

The lack of thinking.

Thinking is something that takes energy. It also has a chemical effect on your brain that can drastically alter your mood. Thinking, 24/7, is the best way to stress yourself endlessly.

Stop. Take a deep breath. Open your eyes and look. Don't think about what you're seeing, don't think about what you hear, what you smell, just. Experience it. Breathe in, and out. Listen to the sounds around you.

When speaking with someone, listen to everything they have to say, fully, and /let them finish/ before thinking of a response. You won't interrupt them this way, your thoughts won't get in the way of you understanding them, either.

Il est sympa ce site #RedditMusicPlayer , il permet de jouer les musiques contenues dans des fils Reddit qu'il va récupérer sur youtube ou soundcloud apparemment. Combiné avec les playlists #listige ça le job :D

Le code source est public sur Github, ça serait super si ça fonctionnait aussi avec les fils #prismo ^^

Awakening is knowing that everything I experience is constructed, a product of my sensory perception and consciousness, and that Reality is contingent
