Some SSDs have had their full-disk encryption password be 32 NULL bytes, no matter your input 🤦‍♂️ ru.nl/publish/pages/909282/dra (PDF) #encryption #fail t.co/1XCQWplJv7

it's weird how "low-poly" can both mean "the triangles are flat shaded and showing" and "doing literally everything in my power to make it appear that the very large triangles are absolutely not showing"

Users are more aware of, and concerned about, the harms of pervasive tracking than ever before. So why does Google still build Chrome as if it needs to vacuum up everything it can about your online activities? eff.org/deeplinks/2018/11/goog source: twitter.com/eff/status/1059213

so interesting few facts about newjack.city

The instance is being fronted by Cloudflare but due to the nature of federation, the source IP of their origin server is revealed in logs:

67.171.154.53 - - [03/Nov/2018:19:54:47 +0000] "POST /users/staticsafe/inbox HTTP/1.1" 202 36 "-" "http.rb/3.3.0 (Mastodon/2.6.1; +newjack.city/)"

That is a Comcast residential IP in Troutdale, Oregon, USA. Traceroute/mtr and the last few hops reveal that bit.

What do Epic Games sending itself a takedown, Sony claiming it owns Bach, and romance authors arguing about who owns the word "cocky" have in common? They're all entries in our Takedown Hall of Shame eff.org/takedowns source: twitter.com/eff/status/1058834

I made something for Mastodon: A gallery mini-app.

source.joinmastodon.org/Gargro

You can simply drop it in your Mastodon server's public folder, and it will show images from your server in a mosaic grid with infinite scroll. Supports some configuration as well, e.g. whether to limit it to only local images, or a specific hashtag, or which server to fetch from.

Please mind that not safe for work images are displayed without warning in the gallery.

When I started going to college, I majored in deaf studies. I wanted to learn sign language and become an interpreter. However, I wasn't very good at it. So I changed majors and got an associates in business, then transferred to a 4 year university and now I'm working on my bachelors in social work.
My mom is hard of hearing and that why I wanted to learn to sign, so I do still want to learn some day

New exemptions to section 1201 of the DMCA will help more creators and technology users, but they don’t save the law from being an unconstitutional restraint on freedom of speech. eff.org/deeplinks/2018/10/new- source: twitter.com/eff/status/1058894
