To the Tumblr refugees: welcome!

Having been on the Internet for over thirty years, I have one piece of advice for creative folks working online:

Control Your Platform.

Don't build a business around Facebook, Tumbler, G+, Geocities, MySpace, AltaVista, or any of these other third parties that claim to offer quick and easy results.

They all go away. Every one of them.

Build your own site. Use third parties to steer people to your site.

Third parties are the devil--useful devils, but devils.

Btw: If you need help backing up your #tumblr or their backup tool is not working for you I'll gladly help you save your stuff

So if you’re gay, we can handle that.” Ray Hill, ‘citizen provocateur’ who fought for gay rights and prison reform, dies at 78 A sweet obit for inspiring activist Ray Hill

Kennt sich hier wer mit #GPLv2 aus? Mich würde interessieren, ob man irgendetwas veröffentlichen muss, wenn man eine GPLv2 Software (wireguard) auf einem nicht Standard Linux (QNAP NAS) zum laufen bekommt und ein "fertiges" Paket anbieten (qpkg) möchte. #followerpower #GNU #GPL #QNAP

Basic documentation for the PaX SEGVGUARD implementation in #HardenedBSD is now written:

A more in-depth technical write-up still needs to be performed. That will come with time.

Actually it's not, the bastards just slow down your browsing with these shitty interstitials to make you install the app so they can have more data about you

A common bug is to leave sensitive mem uncleared and reuse memory (e.g. via #malloc’s cache) without proper initialisation, leading to secret leakage. The purpose of freezero() and recallocarray() is to protect against that threat. Big threat to the application is the application.
