Thoughts on this setup?

The black lines are just USB A connections, except the Steam Deck-->Steam Deck Dock connection, which is actually USB C. I'm thinking about getting a second monitor later on, but that might complicate things. I don't know really how switches work yet.

FauxPilot

This is an attempt to build a locally hosted version of GitHub Copilot. It uses the SalesForce CodeGen models inside of NVIDIA's Triton Inference Server with the FasterTransformer backend.

Prerequisites

You'll need:

  • Docker
  • docker-compose >= 1.28
  • An NVIDIA GPU with enough VRAM to run the model you want.

Note that the VRAM requirements listed by setup.sh are total -- if you have multiple GPUs, you can split the model across them. So, if you have two NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPUs, you should be able to run the 6B model by putting half on each GPU.

Support and Warranty

lmao

Setup

Run the setup script to choose a model to use. This will download the model from Huggingface and then convert it for use with FasterTransformer.

$ ./setup.sh 
Models available:
[1] codegen-350M-mono (2GB total VRAM required; Python-only)
[2] codegen-350M-multi (2GB total VRAM required; multi-language)
[3] codegen-2B-mono (7GB total VRAM required; Python-only)
[4] codegen-2B-multi (7GB total VRAM required; multi-language)
[5] codegen-6B-mono (13GB total VRAM required; Python-only)
[6] codegen-6B-multi (13GB total VRAM required; multi-language)
[7] codegen-16B-mono (32GB total VRAM required; Python-only)
[8] codegen-16B-multi (32GB total VRAM required; multi-language)
Enter your choice [6]: 2
Enter number of GPUs [1]: 1
Where do you want to save the model [/home/moyix/git/fauxpilot/models]? /fastdata/mymodels
Downloading and converting the model, this will take a while...

Done! Now run ./launch.sh to start the FauxPilot server.

Then you can just run ./launch.sh:

Copilot Plugin

Perhaps more excitingly, you can configure the official VSCode Copilot plugin to use your local server. Just edit your settings.json to add:

    "github.copilot.advanced": {
        "debug.overrideEngine": "codegen",
        "debug.testOverrideProxyUrl": "http://localhost:5000",
        "debug.overrideProxyUrl": "http://localhost:5000"
    }

And you should be able to use Copilot with your own locally hosted suggestions! Of course, probably a lot of stuff is subtly broken. In particular, the probabilities returned by the server are partly fake. Fixing this would require changing FasterTransformer so that it can return log-probabilities for the top k tokens rather that just the chosen token.

Working on an idiot project, would appreciate codecel input

Imagine for a moment that you are me: a balding smoothbrained millenial on the wrong side of 30 emanating a constant funk of mildew and sour milk. The last time you cared about coding you were booting off floppy diskettes and making HTML websites with frames.

Now, I'm working on an idiot project. I want to make a web applet where I could input text, store it in a .txt file and then retrieve it from another PC.

Is web2py and an apache server a feasible approach? I'm too :marseyretard3: for django.

web2py uses SQL for a storage db, but honestly it's going to be a single user app (just me) and storing the .txt files in a directory with a date/time naming scheme would be fine.

Would this work the way I want it to? I have tried googling but these questions are too basic and r-slurred to find answers to.

Instagram to increase ad load as Meta fights revenue decline

Following another quarter that saw marketers pull back on their ad spending, Meta today announced it’s increasing its ad load on Instagram with the launch of two new ad slots.

Called “post-loop” ads, these 4- to 10-second skippable ads and standalone video ads will play after a Reel has ended.

In addition, the company is introducing new Instagram ad placements as a way to increase the surface for ads as it struggles to monetize its TikTok competitor, Reels.

Historically, Instagram had only placed ads on Explore within the Explore feed — that is, when a person taps on a post and scrolls.

The company said it saw third-quarter revenue potentially declining between 2% and 11% year-over-year to somewhere in the range of $26 billion to $28.5 billion.

Instagram is also launching the open beta for AR ads in Feeds and Stories, a format that was previously announced, and rolling out a song library with free music advertisers can use in their Reels ads.

lol webshits I HATE WEBSHITS :marseyneko: SO MUCH. THEY CANT EVEN DO THEIR OWN JOBS PROPERLY :marseyraging:

So I was called into fix this UNFIXABLE CSS bug in an application. I am not even a css expert and they for some reason they call me to fix this shit. well anyway the bug is that some of the fonts are not working on some screens .

I go look at the css and the scss files and what do I see? this shit (SEE IMAGE). The red is old, bottom is what I fixed. You know what they did?

for @font-face they used the entire font-family string so basically they setup the @font-face as

"'ourcustomsansfont', -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, 'Segoe UI', Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif"

this makes the name of this font as that WHOLE string, no, not ourcustomsansfont like it should be.

then they go on using the whole string in the font-family atrribute like this

font-family: "'ourcustomsansfont', -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, 'Segoe UI', Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif"

thats the name of a single font. no, they are not fallback font, THAT WHOLE THING IS A SINGLE FONT NAME. IMAGINE THAT

NOW IM HERE WORKING TILL 3AM because of these retards who couldn't visit w3cschools and understand how to declare a @font-face

This whole thing has 40+ references in the code and I had to search replace change it from

font-family: "'ourcustomsansfont', -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, 'Segoe UI', Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif";

to this

font-family: ourcustomsansfont, -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, "Segoe UI", Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;

and the @font-face to

@font-face: "ourcustomsansfont"

I HATE CSS, I HATE WEBSHITS :#marseyshooting:

The NSW government will introduce laws to confiscate unexplained wealth from criminal gangs and ban the use of encrypted devices as part of long-waited reforms to combat money laundering and organised crime.

A snap cabinet meeting late on Wednesday night agreed to the new measures, designed to cripple the finances of crime networks, stopping criminals from profiting from their actions and incapacitating them financially.

The new powers allow for the confiscation of unlawfully acquired assets of major convicted drug traffickers and expand powers to stop and search for unexplained wealth.

Senior ministers have been working on new laws to deal with proceeds of crime and unexplained wealth since last year, when secret briefings from top-ranking police warned that organised crime in NSW was out of control.

Police Assistant Commissioner Stuart Smith warned cabinet ministers and senior public servants in December that organised crime was rampant and anti-organised crime laws in NSW were abysmal.

Days after that briefing, Premier Dominic Perrottet was also provided with the same darning update from Smith, a senior government source with knowledge of the conversations has confirmed.

That month, Attorney-General Mark Speakman and then police minister David Elliott began working on laws to tackle unexplained wealth. The work has continued under new Police Minister Paul Toole.

Perrottet said the new powers would help police infiltrate criminal networks.

“Organised crime is all about drug supply and money – and to truly shut it down we need to shut down the flow of dollars that fuels it,” Perrottet said.

“These reforms will better arm law enforcement agencies with the powers they need to confiscate unexplained wealth and create new offences and tougher penalties for those seeking to launder money derived from criminal activity.

“Organised crime and the technologies that criminals use are always changing and evolving, and these reforms will put our state in the strongest position to deal with these insidious crimes.”

Deputy Premier and Police Minister Paul Toole “organised crime in this state is on notice”.

“If you think you can hide the ill-gotten gains of crime, you are wrong. If you think you can avoid detection by using encrypted devices, you are wrong,” Toole said.

“We know these encrypted devices are being used to plan serious crimes like drugs and firearms smuggling, money laundering and even murder.

“These reforms will make it an offence to possess these kinds of devices and allow us to better target high-risk individuals from using them to orchestrate crime.”

Legislation will be introduced when parliament returns for the spring session.

Yes, it requires save-crop-save, which is probably not the predominant use-case but I think it's still gonna be frequent.

This also applies to the "Snip & Sketch" tool in Windows 10.

Note that this doesn't apply to the windows 10 snipping tool.

OPNsense is an open source, FreeBSD-based firewall and routing software developed by Deciso, a company in the Netherlands that makes hardware and sells support packages for OPNsense. It is a fork of pfSense, which in turn was forked from m0n0wall built on FreeBSD.[3] It was launched in January 2015.[2] When m0n0wall closed down in February 2015 its creator, Manuel Kasper, referred its developer community to OPNsense.[4]

OPNsense has a web-based interface and can be used on the x86-64 platform.[5] Along with acting as a firewall, it has traffic shaping, load balancing, and virtual private network capabilities, and others can be added via plugins.[6] OPNsense offers next-generation firewall capabilities utilizing Zenarmor, a NGFW plugin developed by OPNsense partner[7] Sunny Valley Networks.

In November 2017, a World Intellectual Property Organization panel found Netgate, the copyright holder of pfSense, used the domain opnsense.com in bad faith to discredit OPNsense, and obligated Netgate to transfer domain ownership to Deciso.[9]

Some of you may have come across OPNsense.com a domain that until September 21, 2017 was home to a controversial website with content targeted to harm our open source project.

On the fore mentioned date we filed a complaint with WIPO, the World Intellectual Property Organization to try and stop this website from being operated.

Until our legal action we were unable to determine the owner of the domains as it was registered using Domains By Proxy, LLC, however we believed the site was created by a pfSense enthusiast who had gone a step too far.

Much to our surprise we received an email on September 26, 2017 stating that the owner of this domain was in fact Jamie Thompson, Rubicon Communications dba Netgate also known for the competing pfSense project.

Maybe this should not have come as a surprise as ever since we created OPNsense they have tried to harm our project and aided in spreading false information, mostly done using anonymous accounts. Their aim has been to scare off new users and keep our project from Wikipedia, this way depriving others from making their own choice.

Their actions have been bad for the open source community as they undermine the very basic principles of open source.

Today we have been able to stop Netgate and although we are glad this chapter can be closed, it does not feel like a victory at all as the time, effort and money could have been spend much better.

The full text of the WIPO panel’s decision on OPNsense.com can be found here:

http://www.wipo.int/amc/en/domains/search/text.jsp?case=D2017-1828

The content of OPNsense.com prior to our action can still be seen on the WayBackMachine, the internet archive (beware it contains shocking material): https://web.archive.org/web/20160314132836/http://www.opnsense.com/

The video that was not cached contains scenes taken from the film “Downfall”, the historical war drama film depicting the final ten days of Adolf Hitler's rule over Nazi Germany, along with a comment reading “From deep within the OPNsense development bunker”.

[never before seen Schizocopy of the video :capyhacker: linked in op]

As Deciso, the company behind OPNsense we have not yet decided upon further action, but ask all who read this to push back to those who try to harm our community and open source in general.

As a final note, we wish to thank everyone for their overwhelming supporting and are proud to have witnessed the positive development of the project as a whole, a rapidly growing community and the next major release 18.1 almost at our doorstep.

Stay safe,

Your OPNsense team
