Three conspiracy theorists walk into a bar.

You can't tell me that's just coincidence.

Designers (and project managers) need to go back to dialup until the web becomes usable again

Downloading megabytes of JS and CSS to view your "coming soon" page doesn't give me high hopes for whatever it is you're trying to sell

I wish more people who build information systems understood Claude Shannon’s work.

@gargron Threats are a crime, to be dealt with by the police. Upset individuals deciding to become vigilantes is not the solution.

@kurtm @kellerfuchs and to be perfectly clear: we coordinated with the original author on our commit in August.

That the author regrets that choice is 1) not our problem, and 2) not our responsibility.

it is completely inappropriate that he singled out , when e.g. Mikrotik also stealth published before hands.

@shellkr It appears, from here, quite the opposite.

The US government have declared Antifa "terrorists". That's a fact that's easy to prove with a quick online search and that's how I stated it in the video.

MOST people seem to support the facts I laid out. Roughly 4 to 1 on the video "likes".

I have, however, already received threats of violence from people demanding I take the video down. So. There's that.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

As 's de-facto wifi maintainer, I first learned about this WPA problem in June. A simple patch was provided which I could commit with slight modifications.

The original embargo was already 2 months long, and then extended again for 2 months.

The generall public (you) were left in the dark about this for at least 4 months.

This is a very sad state of affairs. It takes the industry much too long to apply a simple patch.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. I've seen malloc() crash due to SLAB allocation bugs in Solaris. I've seen Java programmers write a second god class because the first one ran out of memory.

All these memory leaks will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die();

mastodon.social got linked in @glinner's "goodbye twitter" blog post and now my notifications are full of new users

FYI it's better to link joinmastodon.org unless you specifically want to invite people to a particular instance like this, but I'm not complaining 😋

Something that's really refreshing about Mastodon is there's no ads. I spent an inordinate amount of time maintaining adblockers and using 3rd party social network apps just to avoid ads. It's worth it in the end, but it's still a drag. But here? Wonderful by default.
