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 ( 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.

Congratulations, ryan28561, you're the winner of "the most useless response encountered on Stackoverflow today":

(BTW, the correct answer is "this happens if DEBUG is set to True. You have to set it to False to avoid this message.")

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.

@uvok yes, DNS resolves any RR regardless the protocol requesting them, and an IPv4 DHCP server may return IPv6 name server addresses as well (at least the one used by Fritz OS does.) IPv6-only networks need a bit more configuration in various areas. We have one customer that runs an IPv6-only cluster, setting that up was ... interesting.

@uvok In short, no. I'm not aware of any specific libnss_* plugin for glibc, nscd doesn't implement it, sssd apparently neither, I haven't checked on NetworkManager, and rdnssd (besides not being packaged for a number of distributions) just modifies /etc/resolv.conf thus probably won't interact very well with nscd/sssd. I haven't checked systemd yet, though. But I'm afraid you'll have to use DHCPv6.
