@SciencePhysicist I'm legitimately wondering if that's what they're planning. Do they start letting Linux own real hardware in 2021? Do they start telling people to write Linux drivers in 2022? Does Hell freeze over in 2023?

All my music is now Pay What You Want.

I have this theory that Monetizing My Hobby™️ has sucked all the joy out of it. It changed my mindset from "here's a thing I made, pay if you want" to "here's a thing I made, please pay me for it."

This hasn't worked for me. It doesn't get me the tools I need, and I can't make what I want in that mindset with my current tools. We'll see what happens.

Boost appreciated.

MICROSOFT TOP SECURITY CRYPTO API DEVELOPMENT TEAM RECRUITER:

ok so we need you to do some whiteboard coding exercises, number one, here's a C++ API for evaluating digital certificates, so the NSA asks you to hide a backdoor in it, what would you change

ME:

(sweats) whew that's heavy well uh I'd obviously have to hide it with VERY obfuscated code, uh, give me a moment...

RECRUITER:

I'm sorry, the correct answer is (checks answer key) "literally just don't even read the parameters". Next.

Recently I learned that you can watch any youtube video without going to youtube.com simply by replacing youtube.com/ with invidio.us/ - rather useful.

Site title: "You are being redirected..."
Displayed site body (in noscript tag): "Javascript is required. Please enable javascript before you are allowed to see this page."

I don't think it's a hot take to say that I shouldn't need to enable JavaScript on a page just to go to a different page.

Wow, some very interesting new research here: tpm.fail/

Researchers published attacks that can recover encryption keys from Trusted Computing Modules (TPMs) (which isn't supposed to be possible) by timing elliptic curve signature generation. "On Intel fTPM, our key recovery succeeds after about1,300 observations and in less than two minutes."

Nearly all Windows computers store BitLocker encryption keys in TPMs.

@yogthos "No citizen is above paying taxes. Well, except Markus Vansten. But that's understandable because he's so wealthy. When you're as wealthy as Markus Vansten you have proved your value to society through hard work and determination, and are no longer required to show anyone any further proof that you care about anything or anybody else. Because you obviously do, look at all your money!"

@Kevin "May not be secure", as opposed to Chrome that they made sure is not secure and will spy on you?

If you own a browser and you start to block other browsers you should get with an anti-trust lawsuit right in the face, at the bare minimum.
