So had my 7 year old son today ask what TFA was. I said I don't know assuming that it was another YouTube sensation or something. He then showed me. What he was referring to was 2FA. Fortnite is now encouraging gamers to enable 2FA on their accounts and in return they get an item for free. What a great way to educate youngsters and better secure their accounts. Very impressed with Epic and their approach to security 😀
During an interview
„What would you use to do $x“
„I’d use $y, it’s not that we know but awesome!“
„I’m not sure that’s the best idea for this scenario, we want x,y and z and y and z aren’t that well supported“
„Oh it works you just have to learn a bit more about $y to understand how to do it“
Candidate was talking about a project I created...
Just published „unit testing command line applications in #Swift“ https://www.timo-zimmermann.de/2019/02/unit-testing-command-line-applications-in-swift/ - I actually managed to run in one of „those problems“
And today in “#Swift is production ready”: What does the following error tell us?
`Undefined symbols for architecture x86_64: […] Swift.String`
If you guessed “you are trying to unit test a target with a `main.swift` file” you are correct.
IT IS RIGHT THERE IN THE ERROR
Wrote up my opinion on the whole “screen recording on iOS” thing going on right now https://www.timo-zimmermann.de/2019/02/screen-recoding-on-ios/ - finally Apple taking a strong stance for their users #privacy
Just published „the Apple Watch that finally won my heart“ (but still not a permanent spot at my wrist) https://www.timo-zimmermann.de/2019/02/the-apple-watch-that-finally-won-my-heart/
Anyone recommendations which software I want to use if I want to track all changes made to a #Windows system? (Software downloaded, installed,...)
Just published my opinion on Apple revoking certificates and the unique chance they missed making a strong statement pro #privacy https://www.timo-zimmermann.de/2019/02/on-apple-revoking-certificates-i-would-have-hoped-for-more/
Just blogged - migrating back to #Wordpress https://www.timo-zimmermann.de/2019/01/migrating-back-to-wordpress/
What a bug... FaceTime lets you call another iOS user and listen to their microphone briefly without them even answering https://9to5mac.com/2019/01/28/facetime-bug-hear-audio/
Summary of the #Pleroma API changes:
Pleroma emulates the Mastodon REST API to piggyback on the Mastodon apps that already exist (fair enough). Pleroma changes IDs returned by their emulated API, from numbers encoded as base 10 strings, to numbers encoded as base 62 strings (difference being the method by which they can be sorted in typed systems) (1/2)
I got an project idea and the more I think about it the more I like it. But
- it will cost a lot of time
- it will cost me some money every month
- there cannot be any revenue
- people will annoy the fuck out of me with suggestions like putting it on the blockchain and integrating federation which completely misses the point
Not sure if I want this to happen enough to put up with the above four... :/
So now it is official: Facebook knowingly and willingly ripped off children, refusing to reimburse illegal charges when parents noticed - all as a means of maximizing profit. They called it "friendly fraud" internally. Wow...
If you ask me, everyone involved should be facing jail time now.
Still working on the mobile teams for Nurx.com - the iOS pipeline looks amazing but the #android one is a bit small for my liking.
If you know someone who is looking for a great opportunity please let me know. We are hiring from junior and senior, it’s a #remote position - you can work from our office in SF or course - and the team is truly awesome.
I build backends, apps and sometimes break them, practice martial arts and enjoy video games.
Currently working as head of security.
A Mastodon instance for info/cyber security-minded people.
