The numbers do matter in the case, becase even if 2 persons are fleeing the country, it is enough to state “The news itself that people are fleeing the country”, right?

PS. Russian-language source referring Khazakhstan officials, there are around 34k left the Khazakhstan border in the last week (98k in, 64k out).


Instead of numbers we have satellite pictures: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/russians-fearing-conscription-flood-border-georgia-mongolia-rcna49487

It is actually drone videos, not satelites’ pictures. Anyway, they are qualitative, althought numbers from THAT video can be calculated.

Finland’s border control released these statistics yesterday: https://twitter.com/rajavartijat/status/1574376900256055296. So far it’s about 3000 Russians not returning per day.

Seems to be ok.

Of course I can try to check the actual numbers from several countries (if the actual and correct statistics are available), and that is something everyone can do :)

That’s the main problem. It is not your not mine job of doing that. It is the original post journallist fucking job to that, i.e. gather numbers from officials and do own checks, and present them to readers! Instead the source feeds their readers with the arbitrary drawn number out of anywere; the number look OK in some reasable borders, but the “reasonable borders” it is quite vague notion, which vary from 10k to 1M.


" is now full of people leaving"

is not the number. You cannot jump from “qualitative statement” to “quantitative statement”, because “full of people leaving” might vary from several hours of staying on the borders (hundrets) … to tens of thousands. The numbers from Georgian/Mongolian/Belarussian officials, of couse, will likely be around true numbers, but they are missing too (in the article).


Have you got any proof this information here is propaganda?

What is the original source of the number 260k ? If it is “undisclosed source” (Kremlin’s security services) - that is non-proveable, as the other source can tell 1M or 5M ). So, it is propaganda (does not matter natos or russian) unless it tells some official person, which has access to that information.


The front line is quite large, so there is no enough manpower to streighten it. Recent Ukrainian successful counter-offence demostrated softness of the frontline, so doulbling manpower on the front seems work on mistakes.


The co2 emission methodology is not clean. The much more simple methodology would be how much cpu & gpu time spends client compuer by loading front-page. JS-bloated sites will obviosly anti-leaders, comparing to lemmy and https://old.reddit.com/




There are C++ alternatives like CAF or rotor , they are far away from features of AKKA, but still they are FOSS and they are actor frameworks.



The sole EU is responsible for it’s breaking up. Why put responsibility of that to the others?


According to Russian sources, Russianse able to neuralize about 1.2k Ukrain warriors on the 1st day of the offensive. If even half of that is true, that was pure Zerg-Rush attack, ended without any success.



There is a “appimage” solution for developers. I.e. just make you app “fat” (let it bundles everything it needs into single executable), then user just downloads it and launches. Even automatic updates can be supported, afaik!

“Appimage” (and flatpack etc.) shoud not be used instead of standard disto packages, like firefox, chromium etc.


Try to change a disto, then. debian/void/arch/gentoo. )



Ukranian casualities are classified by the goverment, as well as the location of mobilized solder during his first 90 days of duty. That’s gives an possibility to the govement say literally any numbers of casualities.

There are indirect pointers of heavy casualities: introduced military duty on women, introduced mobilisation of infected with tuberculosis (non-officially), hard to leave the country by men, catch civilian attempts to mobilize on streets etc.


I completely agree with you, that HIMARS in the current amounts cannot play game changing role.


You do realize that Ukraine had hundreds of MLRS systems before they got HIMARS right? There is nothing magical about HIMARS, it’s not some wunderwaffen that western media makes it out to be.

You are right when you compare HIMARS with other Russian/Soviet MLRS. The difference comes with NATO satelite’s targeting / highlighting. Together with long-range missiles (300 km) it can be serious weapon. Ukraine don’t have such a missiles for now, at least officially, as far as I know.

Russia demostrated recently that it can successully intercept 100% of them with S-400 anti-air weapon.


lost a City at the heart of the eastern battle.

Actually, it is quite a large port-city Mariupol, and a few minor cities like Lisitchansk and SeveroDonetsk. As the result whole territory of LPR is deoccupied from Ukraine (or lost by Ukraine). It is quite a strategic win of Russia, isn’t it?

they’re trying to form a bigger counteroffensive right now

It is not fair to compare “plans” with “gains”. Every side might have big plans, but from military point of view it is better to compare initiative and territorial gains.

They’re also getting another big batch of tanks from Poland.

The amount of tanks is about 200, as I’ve heard. It is actually quite a few number, as Ukrain had about 6’500 of them in 1992 ( English wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armed_Forces_of_Ukraine ). Would it be 10 000 of tanks, yep, that definitely might change the situation drastically.



I'm glad to announce v0.2.0 release! The major feature of the new release is the possibility to use [relay transport](https://docs.syncthing.net/specs/relay-v1.html#relay-protocol-v1) from the public pool of synthing relays from [https://relays.syncthing.net/](https://relays.syncthing.net/) . Currently `syncspirit` picks a random on the start. More complete changelog can be seen [here](https://github.com/basiliscos/syncspirit#020-22-may-2022), and the source code and binaries (for windows and linux) can be downloaded [here](https://github.com/basiliscos/syncspirit/releases/tag/v0.2.0). `syncspirit` is [syncthing](https://syncthing.net)\-compatible syncrhonization program, which implements [BEP-protocol](https://docs.syncthing.net/specs/bep-v1.html). `syncspirit` is written from the scratch software, which has different technical decisions on it's foundation to overcome `syncthing` limitations. `syncspirit` is available for windows and linux; you can build and use it on [termux](https://termux.com/) for Andoid. Currently `syncspirit` is targeted to power users and early adopters, who feel self comfortable with command-line. Any feedback is welcome! WBR, basiliscos.

Hello, I'm glad to do first announcement of my [syncspirit](https://github.com/basiliscos/syncspirit), an alternative implementation of BEP protocol, gracefully shared by syncthing developers. In simple words, it is syncthing-compatible. `syncspirit` is written from scratch in C++, so a lot of expected features found in `syncthing` missing. However, it is able to do one-side syncrhonization, i.e. it implements "receive-only" folder model at the moment. Currenly only command-line intreface is available, so, it is targeted mostly to power users. The prebuild binaries for windows and linux are available for [downloading](ttps://github.com/basiliscos/syncspirit/releases/tag/v0.1.0), they are statically built, so no additional external dependencies should be required. The interface can be evaluated and at [asciinema](https://asciinema.org/a/474217) Why `ss` might be interesting for you? Well, it already has some unique features, like **rsync-like mode** (i.e. download files from peer and exit; it is implemented as "exit-on-inactivity-timeout"), and, it might have quite a good disk performance on HDDs since it tries hard to write sequentially. Also, the whole performance is tuneable (i.e. number of threads is manageable and configurable). Any feedback is welcome. My short-term plan will be implement relay-transport. Cheers, basiliscos





What to bring to Cuba as a small IT-gift as a tourist?
Hi, After a month I'm going to have a vacansion in Cuba. I have heard, that the country has shorage of electronics due to sanctions. I have a few old, but working, wifi-routers (with openwrt, I think), which I do not use any longer. Is there any sense to bring them here and give to people, do they have such a need? Or this also electronic garbage, and just throw it away?
