Youtube going down is, in my opinion, another reminder of the issues of having one semi-monopoly platform for such an important and useful service. When the platform that is the only place that does the thing goes down, you can't do the thing.

Lol the hot cocoa is almost completely sold out.

Spotify had a big ass breach. This morning? Log in, force a log out of all locations, and reset your passwords.

At least 4,000 accounts affected with passwords exposed in plain text.

Boost for visibility.

Turns out a neighbor on my street has a weather station. It just wasn't on when I was looking for nearby stations. It's an older model and probably not as accurate, but I don't see the point in buying one myself if I can use theirs.

Youtube going down the same day as a libssh vuln getting released is not very reassuring. Especially when ffmpeg depends on libssh... is youtube using ffmpeg?

I have recently started using weather underground instead of and it seems to give me much more accurate readings. I’m undecided, but considering getting a home weather station to contribute to the readings that wunderground uses.

I would like to live further away from civilization, but still have a top tier internet connection.

Is anyone actually using PMD source code analyzer for security purposes these days? The secure coding rulesets I've found out there haven't been updated in six years.

Who knew that years of burning the midnight oil would result in insomnia later in life.

No but really, these hacking scenes are horrendous.

I've been working my way through Designated Survivor, which has really horrifically bad hacking scenes and a really sweet reassuring president in it. Overall, I like it.

Just made green salsa using tomatillos from my garden. Fall is pretty great.

Looking for a top down RTS with less clicking than Starcraft, less toxicity than League of Legends, and graphics that don’t suck. Ideas?

It has taken me a long time to realize it, but I have come to the conclusion that the reason I value privacy is because it frees me of many cumbersome social expectations. No one cares if my outfit consists of ripped sweatpants and a ten year old t-shirt if I’m lounging around my home all alone. I value that time out of the public eye and I’m starting to wonder where the line is. Is the area behind my curtains in my bedroom really private if I have my phone?
