A common dark pattern to discourage from price comparison while booking flights or rental cars: "for your privacy and security, the session has been terminated due to inactivity."

Well f*ck you, too.

Also abwarten. Bald kommt Update der CWA und dann werden die Zertifikate in der App selbst aktualisiert. Cool! Wie letsencrypt für Impfnachweise! I like!

„Laut Planungen des RKI sollen die Corona-Warn-App ab Ende Mai und die CovPass-App im Juni per Update fähig sein, technisch abgelaufene Covid-19-Impfzertifikate zu aktualisieren“

Oh great. It's gonna be the first show rehearsal next weekend and our director/producer has caught covid. Fortunately, he's vaccinated and boosted, but now we have to figure out the logistics without him being present on site. At least we'll be able to video conference him in.

"We cannot reinstall, it's a critical system" — should I call your CIO? Or the BoD?

I adore the US Southwest, I love its deserts. And looking at the absurd growth of populace during the last 20 years or so, I'm obviously not the only one. But it's not sustainable and if I were living there, I'd seriously consider moving elsewhere as soon as possible: deseret.com/2022/4/27/23025672

I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's

Ok, but Mastodon has Blahaj stickers and I instantly feel better about this place.

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.

Funny enough, they do offer 2FA by Google Authenticator, though their mailings kept pestering me to add my phone number.

And on top of that, Paypal already harvested my phone numbers from vendors who made it compulsory in their order forms.

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)
