... Actually, you know what? Now that I have swap set up, let's see exactly how screwed I'm about to be in a few minutes.

Updating to 2.7.4, which, of course, means shutting down the Mastodon processes because Webpack inevitably causes the entire thing to run out of memory if I don't. Whee.

Hey, y'all-- Facebook recently announced they're launching a "Patreon killer" service.

Regardless of your thoughts on Patreon, FB's alternative is TERRIBLE!

โš ๏ธ 30% gross revenue fee
โš ๏ธ Automatic LIFETIME IP rights to ANYTHING you put on the service
even if you quit!
โš ๏ธ FB wants to give discounts and freebies whenever they like, w/o creator approval, and then deduct it from creator revenue
โš ๏ธ FB will also control WHO sees your content and how many views you have

Emerging new company starterpack by /u/super_corndog

mad @ technology company 

fucking lmao

the wish shopping website does not confirm e-mails when you sign up before letting you do stuff and somebody registered with my mail address

so after a password reset I can see... all of their data, including... credit card info (which, fortunately, that person has not filled yet)

a+ security, but I'm sure it's all worth it for those sweet, sweet Conversions

I can't even delete the account, there's just a "deactivate" button (the button seems to do nothing)

~=8 Character Passwords Are Dead=~

New benchmark from the Hashcat Team shows a 2080Ti GPU passing 100 Billion password guesses per second (NTLM hash).

This means that the entire keyspace, or every possible combination of:
- Upper
- Lower
- Number
- Symbol

...of an 8 character password can be guessed in:

~2.5 hours

(8x 2080Ti GPUs against NTLM Windows hash)

#Hacking #Infosec

#Mastodon v2.7.2 is out ๐ŸŽ‰

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

It is a backport release, which means if you are running from the master branch, it's not for you.

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Appel ร  tous les admins du #Fediverse qui gรจrent des instance dans l'#UE. La #CopyrightDirective se rapproche et nous devons montrer aux parlementaires ses effets sur l'Internet.

Nous prรฉparons une liste de toutes les instances europรฉennes #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, etc.

Contactez-moi. Je n'ai besoin que du nom de domaine, du pays et de l'objectif gรฉnรฉral de l'instance. Un nombre approximatif d'utilisateur est le bienvenu, mais pas indispensable.

C'est important.

Soon enough, the French Academy rose to the occasion, and published its opinion on this version of French which doesn't exclude women and nonbinary people by design.

They described it as a "mortal peril".

I'm not joking, this is a real quote from its official declaration. Including women and nonbinary people in your spelling puts the French language in "mortal peril".

I absolutely hate how gendered French is, it's literally impossible to talk about someone without gendering them and it sucks

Protip:

When designing a user interface, imagine some old woman using it, say Margaret Hamilton, and she's clicking your app's buttons and saying to you, as old people do,

"Young whippersnapper, when I was your age, I sent 24 people to the ACTUAL MOON with my software in 4K of RAM and here I am clicking your button and it takes ten seconds to load a 50 megabyte video ad and then it crashes

I'm not even ANGRY with you, I'm just disappointed."

I love that literally the DAY OF Tumblr hittin the shits Twitter decides that its newest fun thing is "Jack Dorsey sent an envelope of his beard hair to Azealia Banks so she could craft an amulet to protect Dorsey from ISIS". Tumblr's communal curse needed a new host
