Oh, cool: Wenn man die Nachricht vom Enigma Coin aus dem Open Enigma for dummies Handbuch entschlüsselt, stösst man auf ein Geocache-Rätsel in der Schweiz. Ich bin dann mal Beschäftigt.

How to move in the CLI / readline shortcuts. Perfect flashcard format, courtesy of Clément Chastagnol at https://clementc.github.io/blog/2018/01/25/moving_cli/
Text reading "$ cp monfichier dir/", coupled with arrows above and below detailing the movement shortcuts, starting at the center "c" letter. Arrows above show movement, arrows below show erasing.<br />Detailing the movement options here is probably not helpful, but ping me if you'd like them in text form.

# # When saving passwords in Chrome or Android, these aren't just stored locally, but may get automatically copied to the cloud. Check https://passwords.google.com/ if it did so and disable it, if this isn't wanted.
 
I discovered it had stored over 150 accounts from a work related device more then 5 years ago, when I must have signed in with a google account, that I only created to be able to use an Android back then. Fortunately most accounts got their passwords changed since then, but I deleted them all nonetheless and will have to change passwords on some of them.

I do use a password manager integrated in Firefox (Passman), but store those in my nextcloud instance at home, where I can physically pull the plug if necessary. The fact that the Google browsers did this without my consent or even telling me that this was part of what the Google account did is really bad UX design, to say the least. Firefox was always very transparent about its synchronization feature and back in the day you could synch it with your own server instead of the Mozilla provided one. At least I can choose to use Firefox without signing in and with different, self-hosted synchronization solutions.

 


 

Meine Eindruck vom Congress: Das ist hier wie das Internet in den 90ern - bunt und animiert, wild, frei, mal laut, mal zum Nachdenken, man merkt gar nicht wie die Zeit verfliegt und es gibt immer noch mehr zu entdecken. Ein riesen Spass! #

 

Fediverse meetup am 36C3


As discussed: # - for those that want to get in touch with me - this is the 2011 single-user Friendica instance.

 

Der Kongress ist eine bessere Welt voller netter Menschen. #

 

Ross Andersons presentation at the # introduced me to the concept of security economics: "If Alice guards a system, but Bobs bears the cost of it failing, expect trouble." (quoting from memory)

Sehr schön: PHP 7.3 ist endlich wieder so schnell wie 7.0. Habe ich bemerkt als ich 7.3 zur unit test suite von PrivateBin in TravisCI hinzugefügt habe https://travis-ci.org/PrivateBin/PrivateBin/builds/497382696 - Somit habe ich nun auch das unit test docker image auf 7.3 ge-upgraded https://github.com/PrivateBin/docker-unit-testing/commit/b42a19bd01215d169bcbeb0033d2160e1c4c4808

 

# is the first primordial contact-binary ever explored up-close by a spacecraft, meaning it was once two separate objects that are now bound together. It is a pristine specimen, preserved as it was formed. Other similarly shaped objects have been modified over time due to their closer proximity to the Sun.

DSGVO (GDPR)


In den letzten beiden Wochen habe ich von unzähligen Organisationen erfahren, welche meinen, ich hätte noch irgendetwas mit Ihnen zu tun und freue mich darüber, endlich aus deren Datenbanken zu fliegen, so dass meine Spam-Filter deren Mails nicht mehr ausfiltern müssen.

Und nun gibt es endlich wieder anständige Webseiten welche schnell laden und sich auch ohne Javascript lesen lassen:

- USA today (US Tageszeitung)
- National Public Radio (Verbund öffentlich rechtlicher Radios der USA)

Ich muss sagen, ich finde das eine wirklich grossartige Entwicklung! \o/
