GitHub etiquette question: If someone makes a PR and it's wrong, and you tell them how to fix it, how long should you wait to just make your own PR that's correct?

Have I mentioned how much I fuckin' hate pasting with formatting? And particularly when it's the default behavior? And when there's no bloody way to turn it off? Fuck your interface and the lack of thinking it rode in on.

The Maidsafe guy gets it. He says that if we're creating a decentralized web and we just end up creating decentralized versions of Facebook and Google then we've totally failed.

Building a new web is like starting again, but with prior knowledge of the pitfalls.

Documents seen by The Intercept, marked “Google confidential,” say that Google’s Chinese search app will automatically identify and filter websites blocked by the Great Firewall. When a person carries out a search, banned websites will be removed from the first page of results, and a disclaimer will be displayed stating that “some results may have been removed due to statutory requirements.” Examples ... include BBC and the online encyclopedia Wikipedia.

The notion "you can't be racist against white people" is just a convenient package to justify being a bully. "It's okay for me to treat someone poorly, because they're white."

Why can't we just be nice to everyone?

There's something immensely satisfying though about telling Gmail that yes, you want to select 37,000 emails, and then that yes, you do want to delete them from all folders, and watching it just crank trying to handle it.

Good Lord, removing my Google presence is annoying. I have an account I want to get some emails off of but Google refuses to let me IMAP to it and "recommends I use an app made by Google". And then I realized another account of mine had a copy of 37,000 emails or so in it because of how I had the forward setting set. :|

So, current security belief is that password rotation is now a bad idea and you need a password manager. But I switched email addresses three years ago and it hasn't shown up in a single HIBP breach yet.

Which is to say password (or email address) rotation is probably pretty darned effective.
