Hey, ist das nicht bequem, wenn man den Autoschlüssel nicht mehr ins Lenkradschloss stecken muss? Und sich die Karre auch noch von selbst abschließt, wenn sich mit dem Schlüssel weit genug von ihr entfernt? Und wieder aufschließt, sobald wieder näher kommt? Also, man sich gar nicht mehr um den Schlüssel kümmern muss? Also, ihn quasi vergessen kann? nytimes.com/2021/01/06/nyregio

@fribbledom oh, okay, it’s because the golden ratio (1.618…) is very close to how many kilometers are in a mile (1.609…)

Mind blown, I never realized this coincidence:

You can use the next number in the Fibonacci sequence (1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34) to convert from miles to kilometers.

For example, 13 miles is 21 kilometers.

How convenient, this SCA (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strong_c). It's a perfect way to extort mobile phone numbers from customers.

And that's why FreeOTP or Fido keys as providers of the additional factor will not get any significant traction beyond corporate use, regardless that SMS is insecure (for example subject to passive monitoring, MitM, or SIM swapping social engineering)

Fuck. Yes.

At last! I figured how much my favourite East Frisian tea brand costs in East Frisia without asking my mom (who'd left me non the wiser but send me a care package instead) Next task: finding a local store that sells the pound packs and not only the 250 g ones that cost almost the same, each.

The best thing about the Anet A8 3D printer is the reset button on the control board...

Bottled water companies don't produce water, they produce plastic bottles.

*groan* why was the "nomodeset" boot parameter set for the VM? No wonder the QLX driver didn't work.

I rarely post fursuit photos here, but I really like the photo @SquashTFC@twitter.com took of Tashville the coyote at NordicFuzzCon 2019.

Tashville performed by me, costume by Clockwork Creature.
