SGMII stands for “Serial Gigabit Media Independent Interface.”
SGMII is a mode of
communication between the MAC and PHY to allow for 10/100/1000BASE-T
operation. In 100BASE-TX mode, the MAC still transmits to the PHY at 1.25 Gb/sec,
but each byte is repeated 10 times. The PHY then converts this repeated data to
100BASE-TX format. The process is the same in 10BASE-T mode but each byte is
repeated 100 times.
"In particular, the researchers said, the SSDs fail to link the owner's password to the actual data encryption key (DEK), both of which are stored in the drive." https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/11/05/busted_ssd_encryption/

Does anyone know about any thinking or projects in the #fediverse about federated blogging? I've been reading a lot of blogs on Medium recently and wondering if there's any existing work bridging the gap between total centralisation and having to run/hire your own web host.

Dear Fediverse, can you recommend me something on UX and UI for programmers?
I'm about to start developing a new native desktop application at work. I'll be the programmer there, but we don't have UX and UI designers, so I'll have to fill these roles too. I'd like to prepare a bit so the fail isn't too catastrophic :)
Reading https://www.joelonsoftware.com/2001/10/24/user-interface-design-for-programmers/ now; "Design of Everyday Things" is up next. Where else can I get the core principles from?

Bruce Schneier in #CH2KE: "In fact, I think that people moving their data and processing into the cloud is our most fruitful avenue for security improvements. Already, Google does a better job of securing our data than most individuals or small business can do themselves. Cloud providers have both the security expertise and economies of scale that individuals and small businesses lack; and anything that gives people security without their having to become security experts is a win."
