So many interesting rabbit holes to go down. So little time.
Curiosity: How did you choose your instance?
I just created my own because there wasn't a humor instance and I wanted a place for my friends and me to play.

Looks like we'll be planning for the next round of VMware updates due to #L1TF tomorrow: https://www.vmware.com/security/advisories/VMSA-2018-0020.html
"vCenter Server, ESXi, Workstation, and Fusion updates include Hypervisor-Specific Mitigations for L1 Terminal Fault - VMM.

As an emergent and self-governing system, it could be expected that the size distribution of #Mastodon instances roughly follows Zipf's law.
At first you see the top 6 instances, and then the rest. But on a log-log scale the size distribution is close to a straight line, which would be expected from an emergent system.
OH: "Yeah, that's a good point. I can code, so I suppose I could just built this functionality myself. That's what's great about Slack. If you want something it doesn't have, you might be able to find it, or buy it... but you can very likely build some version of it."
That's some serious Stockholm Syndrome right there. Plus, super annoying how corporations are hijacking the opensource spirit of DIY.
Another amazing feature of Burp Suite's new spider:
The SATCOM talk for #BlackHat2018 was more dire than I guessed. Sure, you can hijack SATCOM terminals to burn people. But Santamarta found in flight aircraft on Shodan and observed botnets trying to infect airplane and ship SATCOM systems. Many ship systems are already infected. Full story soon. #infosec
