Oh sure, when a million dollar company puts files on my computers that track my activity its 'cookies' and 'business', but when I put files on their computers that extract information its 'hacking' and 'illegal' #computing #internet #privacy #bigdata #doublestandards

~=8 Character Passwords Are Dead=~

New benchmark from the Hashcat Team shows a 2080Ti GPU passing 100 Billion password guesses per second (NTLM hash).

This means that the entire keyspace, or every possible combination of:
- Upper
- Lower
- Number
- Symbol

...of an 8 character password can be guessed in:

~2.5 hours

(8x 2080Ti GPUs against NTLM Windows hash)

An IPv6 packet walks into a bar. Nobody talks to him.

8-character passwords can now be brute-forced by computers that can try all 6 quadrillion permutations in 2 and a half hours, but really, any good password system should lock the user out after the first quadrillion guesses. By the second quadrillion, it's probably safe to assume that it's not a legitimate login attempt.

Old store signs are one of the things I love snapping. They are the closest thing we have to time travel.

I'm pondering to make them next summer's photography project. I can also talk about fonts and other design fashion as it evolved through time.

If you can avoid it, never rely on just a password for anything. Use two factor authentication on anything and everything you can.

The other day, I tooted about how I'm using #vim to take time stamped notes and a couple of people said that might be handy.

In response to that overwhelming (?) popular demand, I now have a blog post describing what I did (along with the—very simple and MIT licensed—vimscript that makes it possible) codesections.com/blog/vim-time
