Welcome to 2019, traveler from 2009. The brief:
-sysadmins are now "ops"
-servers are all just "cloud" something
-algorithms are "AI"
-DBs are "blockchains"
-Everything that spies on people is "smart"

Good luck. And update your CV with the above words.

I've started to compile a list of common mistakes that antivirus software is making, not unlike the one I published under palant.de/2018/08/29/password-. So far I have three perfectly avoidable issues. One antivirus had all of them, another "only" two. #infosec #antivirus #cybersecurity

Given that many G+ community owners need to make a decisions soon I wrote a blog post about #FLOSS software to create a #forum or #community.

Just in case you were thinking that the issues described in palant.de/2018/07/09/is-your-l are fixed and all is fine again - I found another loophole allowing #LastPass to access your passwords easily. This one will take a while to get fixed, I'll publish additional info then.

@jalcine @clacke DRM isn't about asking people to pay. Copyright law already does that, and DRM is copyright vigilantism. DRM is about restricting what people can do with stuff they already paid for, to make sure that they can't treat it like something they own. DRM is about treating your clients as your enemies. It's inherently adversarial.

@aral Yes, but on macOS all accelerators use Command, right? That's what Linux desktops environments should do too, rather than only change copy/paste. Ctrl would then just be something you use in the terminal for sending signals and stuff.

Christmas PSA:

For those who keep fetishising Iceland as a representative of their utopian fantasies: ICELANDERS DO NOT SPEND CHRISTMAS READING! THEY CELEBRATE JÓL WITH THEIR FAMILIES! AND MOST OF THE PRESENTS ARE NOT BOOKS BUT THE SAME SHIT YOU GIVE EVERYWHERE ELSE!

Stop making up shit about Iceland to make the most reactionary and tribal of the Nordic countries sound like a Marxist pseudo-intellectual utopia. It's a nice place but nobody is served by bullshit myths

Please.

"Firefox intends to turn "trusted" lookup on BY DEFAULT for everyone, giving Cloudflare a copy of the world's browsing traffic. They promise to safeguard this data. But what if the US DoJ or NSA shows up & asks for a copy & promises the "terrorist support" issue gets settled? 4/5"

People shit talk TempleOS but it had some very interesting concepts. It's just kind of a shame that the guy behind it had problems that prevented normal social functioning; and frankly, asshole trolls who thought his illness was hilarious fed into it.
