PF 2024

merry xmas from AI family...

As another year draws to a close, I find myself reflecting on the year that has passed, and I can’t help but notice that my blog has been rather quiet. However, I’ve made a resolution to share at least one more article before bidding farewell to this year.

When I think about what best encapsulates the essence of the past year, it’s hard to deny the profound impact of AI. It has become an integral part of our lives, and what better way to illustrate this than by sharing the image we chose for our Christmas greeting cards, which amusingly reflects our family dynamics? And, of course, the text you’re reading right now was crafted in collaboration with GPT, a tool I’ve grown to appreciate and enjoy.

I remain optimistic about AI’s role in our lives. I don’t fear it taking over our jobs or overshadowing our creativity. Instead, I see it as a valuable assistant that helps me articulate my thoughts and refine my writing to sound more organic and authentic.

As we approach 2024, I can’t help but anticipate what the future holds. Looking back on the past years, I am certain that the journey ahead will be nothing short of thrilling.


BTW yes – I am the one who always talks to AI nicely, thanks for everything and hope that maybe one day it will help me to get a lighter work once it will take over and will rule the world…. Until then – All Hail Hypnotoad!

We can get list of logged users from the last command, but how to linked these outputs with the list of commands from history? And/or how to push all commands to be written in history when users are using tmux or screen?

Let’sEncrypt (finally)

For such a long time I’ve been using StartSSL certificates for my webs (and jabber….). But after all their affairs I lost my trust in them. And not only me – more and more companies nowadays revoking their CA from the list of approved and trusted CAs.

Also I’m lazy and always forget to renew the certificate so I was looking for solution that can auto-renew all certificates I need…

And last (but not least) reason why I wanted the change – it’s so popular now to use the Let’s Encrypt CA!
