Pinned toot

Virtual DEFCON has cheaper beer, less BO, and I don't have to be far away from home. But I do miss hanging out with my Summer Camp crew

Oh, cool -- my employer (Veracode) decided to make some of their interactive, developer-focused security labs available for free to everyone. They're pretty good, with interactive find-and-fix security flaws and such.

If you're in infosec and also think COVID-19 measures are pointless because infection rates are fairly low where those measures are implemented, I genuinely don't understand you

"We don't need masks or restrictions because the rates are low" is exactly the same reasoning as "we don't need to spend resources on security because we've never been breached"

SARS-CoV-2 is a hell of an exploit. Until we have a patch (vaccine), we need to mitigate other ways

Lutten - sexual attraction to food and excess
Gluede - Wanting to own all the food, whether you eat it or not
Sleath - Taking all the bed for yourself
Srath - Simmering hatred that you never act on
Enthe - A sort of indescribable feeling of dread that you'll never own a Tesla
Peine - Being in awe of your partner's genitals

Here’s the pony I want:

A 13” tablet PC, ideally ARM-based, with capacitive touch and good pen input options. It should run a desktop OS and have USB-C. I want to dock it into a laptop chassis (not a “keyboard cover”) that gives me more peripherals and battery, better GPU, etc.; I might want different chassis for different purposes, like a lightweight option and a portable-workstation option. And the same dock system should allow for docking to a desktop setup as well.

Also, If anyone is looking for Static Code Analysis, let me know... I've got your hookup.

So it's sounding very much like the Twitter breach was some kind of social engineering/phishing attack on Twitter employees who are working from home

Remember this next time you say "but this is an internal app, so it's lower risk"

been thinking about making an "Abort Retry Fail" enamel keychain for like a year now but worried there isn't enough DOS enthusiasts for it :v

können wir ein Open Streetmap-Projekt starten, in dem wir Restaurants festhalten, die sich an die Maskenpflicht halten? Bitte? 🥺

Things we didn't do:
- Start the fire
- Shoot the deputy
- Steal the cookies from the cookie jar

Things we did:
- Tried to fight it
- Shot the sheriff
- Put the sham in the shama-lama-ding-dong

Things we will do:
- Survive
- Rock you
- Walk 500 miles
- Walk 500 more

Things we won't do:
- Get fooled again
- Back down
- That

Things we will never do:
- Give you up
- Let you down
- Run around
- Desert you

(Oops:
- I did it again)

That's not a rating system of "5 means secure!"; it's one star for each of the 5 *minimum* security practices — it's right in the name. The branding and UX is confusing, which Mozilla should be ashamed of

But they're not claiming Zoom is outstanding, just that it does each of the five basic things to meet the bare minimum

Those of us who study nuclear waste disposal for no good reason will find this "Live Laugh Love" sign pants-wettingly hilarious.

@djsundog There was, briefly. Refugees from CompuServe and AOL made a startup and rented a property on the outskirts of Saratoga, CA with the intent of creating KPG, a "perfect" format that would supersede GIF, JPEG, TIFF, etc. Based on emails sent that Fri. in May, one of the coders came up with a new compression algorithm. But when the C code was tested, something happened that created a spherical, non-gravitational event horizon ~20m across.

We don't want kpg. Ever. Just let it be.

For dessert, I had ice cream drowned in Unicorn Blood

No, seriously! I made affogato ("drowned") with the Unicorn Blood espresso from Dark Matter (Chicago)

Going through old accounts and remembered that time @dildog said "because sometimes I am root and shit happens", so I made drinkware:

And now I kind of don't want to delete my Cafepress account

Hey Netflix. Hey. Yeah. Imagine for a moment that I'm not trying to watch something on my mobile browser, I just want to add it to my list because someone recommended it

I mean, I know, weird. I want to use a lightweight web page. Clearly I should want your entire fucking app, which I will never use to watch a show on my phone, just to press the "add to list" button. But, I mean… could you just, like, humor me?
