Ah I see it’s time to treat a social media intern as an Infosec pariah again. ZOMGWTFBBQ you are an [idiot|moron|imbecile] for not knowing how salted hashes work! Was it a *good* answer? Ofc not, but this continual piling on of the pitchfork brigade nonsense is bullshit. Calling out VirginMedia for poor password hygiene I have no issues with, but there is a *human* behind that account; likely a low grade employee who doesn’t set corporate policy. Birdsite bullshit.

@finux you heard from Mike recently? Hasn’t been on bird site for 3 days.

Doin a little open source shit tonight.

'Barrier' is a fork of Synergy 1.9 that is free, since Synergy 2 is an attempt at commercializing the product.

I am adding the ability to constrain the area of the client screen that the server mouse/keyboard has access to. That way you can control part of a remote computer, but limit what parts you can touch. Useful for multi-multimonitor setups where some screen areas might be off limits, or where you use Barrier in conjuction with a KVM.

Anyone looking for pentesting work? We need to hire some full time, non contract, with benefits people!

Here's the thing they don't want u to know and i dont see people exploiting but they could. Windows will automatically install drivers for devices that it sees appear on the network. Via SSDP. This fake thing can make an ancient printer with an out of date driver full of fucking holes magically appear on your network, and yay here's johnny.

@stevelord out of interest, what’s with the gopher resurgence?

Does anybody here know really well? I've been stuck on a stupid problem for the last day or so, and kinetic pattern hair loss is setting in.

I have a config map, manually created. This is good. But how do I automatically create the config map when Kubernetes first spins up and starts deploying pods?

Confidence and discouragement 

Follow up story:
A mentor was working on something he found interesting that everybody else thought was not valuable. That small bit of esoteric technical knowledge was later reused in a seriously impressive exploit.
He said this to me about it, "we don't need to know where the lock for a key is to recognize that a key is valuable."

For me the hardest part of making a Mastodon bot was figuring out the OAuth dance to get my access token.

Twitter offers a UI that does this for you, so I made one for Mastodon! It works on any instance, but it does require you to run a `curl` command (that it generates for you) at the very end. Hope you find it useful!

There are a lot of new Mastodon instances now than there were this time last week.

A gentle reminder to the fledgling #Mastodon #admins to sign up for the mailing list, so you can stay abreast of releases, instance-breaking bugs, and community issues.

And just chill out with your fellow Mastodon admins.

Just had a brief flash of "I'm a social washout, my life is shit, why do I bother, I don't know what I'm doing, I'm never going to a con again."

The older I get the more socially awkward I get, I've noticed. I don't know what happened or why, but my brain is increasingly unable to process social cues.

It's frustrating. What happened to me? I don't know.

On the subject of coding, here is an excellent way to get in to Ruby.

Hey! If you want to install Mastodon on ubuntu trusty, my ansible roles are now a bit more templatized & complete. They are also in a github repo for easy cloning & editing:
