#introductions I'm a software developer and systems admin. I like to keep an eye on infosec so I can help my team and company build better tools
@directhex Whatever happened to your crossposting alarms? They're just question marks now.
potentially dystopian video game idea I dunno Show more
I wish games like Destiny 2 had something where you could specify how much time you want to spend playing the game per week, and then the game dynamically adjusts the milestones and missions that it shows you to match what is reasonably possible in that amount of time. and maybe also used that number (hrs/week) as a guideline for multiplayer matchmaking.
UofAlberta is hiring an IT security analyst, posting here: https://www.careers.ualberta.ca/Competition/S101338446/
I doubt anybody I 'know' here would be interested, but I thought I'd pass it along anyway. The team lead there seems like a good human being and the pay seems reasonable for a job like that in the City of Champions.
Oops, I did it again. updated #hardenedbsd without familiarizing myself with all the steps for a major system upgrade.
Learned the rules for owning lock picks in Alberta. Bring them into the house and leave them there.
Or, do two years of apprenticeship, have a criminal record check and fingerprints on file. I don't really have time for the apprenticeship, but the other two are easy. I had to get those all the time when volunteering.
I think it's beautiful how imperfections make art. Software developers work really hard to add imperfections to art programs and CGI, because humans can sense when something is too perfect; we're made uncomfortable by it.
We love the grit and grain of the page and the graphite. The rough and irregular edges of ink and chalk. The imprecision of the human hand.
Don't be perfect. Be you. That's what people want. That's art.
Was playing a bit of Fallout 4 around my 10 year old this weekend. Mostly looting stuff.
He asked if that's how lock picking actually works (turn the bobby pin to the right spot turn the lock with a screwdriver). So I started digging into the links I've collected from the likes of @tinker and @deviantollam to show him how picking actually works. I think I should pick up a beginner set for us to learn with.
Still using RSA for OpenSSH authentication?
You should read: https://latacora.singles/2018/08/03/the-default-openssh.html
tl;dr: OpenSSH uses by default the md5 hash of your password to encrypt the id_rsa private key.
Good news, you can fix it by running this command (with -o it uses the improved key-format):
ssh-keygen -o -p -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa
Or even better, generate a new ed25519 key (they use the improved key-format by default):
ssh-keygen -t ed25519
Thanks @amenthes for pointing me to the article!
