#introductions Hi federated social web, I’m Carey from 🇳🇿 . I’m a mythical full stack web developer 🦄 in Java on Windows and Linux.
In my spare time, I read, play Euro Truck Simulator and Skyrim, listen to not-quite-mainstream pop music, despair about the waste inherent in Bitcoin, and try to think of something to use #rustlang for.
I’m no good at social media, and I don’t expect Mastodon to change that.
Stop using letters that you don't know the pronunciation of. You can't just use them as fancy versions of the Latin alphabet.
We have computed the very first chosen-prefix collision for SHA-1. To put it in another way: all attacks that are practical on MD5 are now also practical on SHA-1.
We have reduced the cost of a collision attack from 2^64.7 to 2^61.2, and the cost of a chosen-prefix collision attack from 2^67.1 to 2^63.4.
Demo: The legacy branch of GnuPG (version 1.4) is vulnerable. We have created two PGP keys with different UserIDs and colliding certificates.
I’m reading the new #Eberron book that I got for Christmas, and the I’m enoying the descriptions of characters that suggest different kinds of TV shows:
The espionage agency which, if you get yourself in trouble, will disavow any knowledge of your adventuring.
The consulting inquisitive who writes crime fiction for a living, and whose relationships with the party can be a source of drama, or comedy.
I wonder what I’ve missed, or if I’m reading too much into it. #DnD
"Once again, the setup resembles a casino—you win some and you lose some, but the longer you stay in the casino, the more likely you are to lose. The free market is essentially a casino that you can never leave."
Reading about #Eberron while my wife watched TV, I thought about the tavern at the edge of Underlook run by the halfling Han d'Ghallandra, with two human waitresses from Lower Dura and Korranath who are trying to save money to start their business selling Aundarian tarts.
Yeah, sure, there's no problem playing "baby it's cold outside" every christmas because "it was a product of its time" but if I go around singing "let's get a few people tied up in trees and sacrifice them to odin this midwinter solstice" which was an incredibly popular song at the time (if a lot more pithy in the original ancient norse) then I get chucked out of lidl
