Just saw an ad for RoundUp followed directly by an ad for cancer settlements for "a popular weed killer"

The RoundUp ad was pushing the "protective shield" that keeps you from getting it everywhere/on yourself.

VPS/compute isntance providers have been offering IPv6-only instances (usually very low end) for some time.

When you're setting up a small service, only expected to be used by IPv6-ready hosts, it's tempting to save some money (and a v4 address) by going with these options.

And it's great, up until you have to pull down something from Github. Which has no AAAA records.

@Gargron Would there be any damage from changing an instances name (displayed on the homepage and in title bars) frequently, about once a week?

When the largest platforms automate the handling of abuse reports, the malicious use of these tools becomes easy, and attractive to attackers.

It's the reason we need to move away from a centralized Internet.

If your livelihood depends on a platform like YouTube or Twitch, you should consider "mirroring" all of your content to a server YOU control.

You cannot get falsely banned from your own equipment. Period.

@Gargron I've been thinking about single user servers....

I could for example have social.domain.com and be @user@social.domain.com, but what if the domain could specify SRV records, so Mastodon knows that @user@domain.com is hosted at social.domain.com?

Kill the concept of "RT does not equal endorsement."

Don't share content if you don't endorse it.

Don't spread it. Let it die.

Do not give it a platform.

Reportedly, in Tokyo, local gangs have started using drones to transport drugs across the city.

In response, the police are using net-carrying drones to try to capture these packets mid-air.

The gangs are counter-attacking with their own net-drones to try and drop police drones.

In a statement with the Tokyo police, they say they "Haven't had this much fun in years"

Step 1) Approach UPS manufacturers

Step 2) Inform them that there are currently zero power products currently marketed to gamers in the traditional way

Step 3) Welcome back to #LeagueOfLegends #Worlds 2020! JIZ Ligma's midlaner just got their third full item, and this power spike is brought to you by APC!

new hobby: switching "the" and "a" in sentences to make them more interesting.

"just took a shower"? Boring.

"just took the shower"? mysterious. Where Do You Take it? How?

I don't say a place got "socially engineered"

That phrasing, while clinical and professional, hides some of the simplicity of what happened.

I say an attacker "called up and asked nicely"

"The company was breached after a hacker socially engineered a support rep" vs "The company was breached after a support rep gave passwords to someone who called up and asked nicely"
