@bob How about a "G***** Cardboard" of HMDs:

The concept is stupid simple, can be 3D printed and the most expensive part is the smart-watch.
I'm happy to explain details of the concept if someone wants to build their own.
(They insisted to patent it at work, but at least this way it became public and can be replicated by individuals)

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

A remarkably familiar argument, where have we heard that before?

Wishing a very happy birthday to @sophia… her shitposts bring all the Fossplainers to the yard. They’re like it’s better than ’dows… damn right, it’s better than ’dows… she could teach you, but she’d have to charge…

~=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)

:ad: arch linucs is good, i realy like it even after useing debian for a long tim e

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.

@art I'm inherently biased, but there are self-hosted streaming servers like Icecast. You send it e.g. a WebM video stream and anyone can just open the stream URL in their browser.
Feel free to ask more specific questions.

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