The real benefit of GDPR is I get emails reminding me of all the sites I have to delete my account on.

PGP users,

I implemented a simple exploit for Apple Mail, which is vulnerable to direct exfiltration with its default settings. The mitigation, disabling remote content, works but is brittle. So never click "Load Remote Content". (Thunderbird/Enigmail is vulnerable in a similar way, but I haven't tried that one yet.)

I've got several narrowband methane filters from this dataset that are pretty neat, but I just tried combining them and balancing the color based on Saturn's cloud tops, and

Check out the nebula in today's APOD. Try to understand it. That's a star in the center with a torus of dust around it. The X shapes are understood to be a view of some conical structures viewed edgewise.

The well-known free software image editor GIMP now has its own team account on Liberapay: liberapay.com/GIMP

This means that you can donate to the project as a whole, then its members will decide how to split the money, whereas previously you had to figure out by yourself who the contributors are and how much to donate to each one.

🇫🇷 J'aime TeX, alors voici un lien vers son code source. C'est un fichier Pascal lettré de 20 000 lignes. C'est-y pas beau ?

🇬🇧 I like TeX, so here is a link to its source code. It's a single 20 000 lines litterate Pascal file. Nice, isn't it?

@DrWhax @Kensan Getting Heads+Qubes working on the Chell Chromebook required some surface mount rework and I didn't go far enough to figure out how to restore the non-dev-mode write protect screw.

For the last two years I've carried a honeypot laptop with me every time I traveled. I checked it in my luggage, left it unattended in my hotel rooms. After each trip, I did forensic analysis on the laptop to detect if it had been tampered with.

I wrote about my experience and methodology here: theintercept.com/2018/04/28/co

Today I've rediscovered the blanket octopus, pretty rade :3

Funny details: it's immune to the man'owar poison (which is hard poison) and hunt it, tearing the man'owar tentacles and uses them as weapons 😋

Two experiments in one! This one's for me. Needed a metal core because I wanted to make a thumb ring that I could use as a bottle opener. Also never bent a wood liner for a copper ring before. Results with smoked eucalyptus turned out pretty nice.

Isn't it funny how we say "I read the book" as if we were doing something to the book? But in the end, it's the book that comes out of it unchanged.

I wish "rss" hadn't become a synonym for "feed"

feeds are good and cool, but rss is not a good standard (or loose family of standards) that should be perpetuated

Hey people with ties to Poland, I'd like to rent a room or a flat for approx the month of May (totally flexible dates). Anywhere really, but starting to think Gdansk/Sopot/Gdynia would be pretty nice.

Any leads and retoots appreciated :)

(it would be amazing to find a place on here instead of a f***b**k group)

This. Every damned time. Emoji are great when used to sparsely punctuate messages, just not as a heap in your screen-name or at the start of every single message.

Screen readers read you're entire long, elaborate name, including emojis, with every tweet and reply. Imagine hearing "smiling pile of poo huffing with angry face Bob is Punching N*zis and Loving Life heavy red heart stack of books" before every tweet.

In my pre-teens I used to dream about escaping into a world of pure software. Because we could 'do everything over, and do it right'. Make a world without pain, fear, death. This was without even reading any of the cyberpunk writers.

But now I know that we wouldn't do it right. Because we had the chance, and we didn't.

What we put into computers is what's in our heads and our hearts, and those contain... things we need to work on.
