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

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)
