Do you not clean up enough? Is part of it that you really fucking hate the idea of touching dirty things? Do you buy a pair of marigolds and then lose them, over and over again? Me too! Here's the thing: you are allowed to just go on Amazon and buy disposable nitrile gloves!

a cautionary tale of infosec just desserts 

if you are going to be nontechnical, and if you are going to let your ego take the wheel by building a resort-wide wifi rollout, and if you are going to scab as much money as possible by charging silly money and using the cheapest possible gear, and if that cheapest possible gear means using a rinky dink little RB750 as the edge firewall and walled garden - if you are going to do all of that - then at least make sure you patch for CVE-2018-14847 yeah?

Is there an "ActivityPub for idiots" guide anywhere? Looking to implement it and struggling to find quality documentation.

@thomasfuchs hey! two things -

first, thanks for everytimezone, I use it very frequently and it's easily the most low-friction way I know to bounce times around.

secondly, a quick bug report; it's still listing London as BST (UTC+0100) - we left BST on the 28th October.

today in "are the cryptocoiners okay", Peepeth: a distributed, blockchain-backed Twitter clone with no delete button by design.

you read that right. you can't delete anything you post, ever.

yeah, that'll work out just fine.

@rummik Thanks for the report. The spammer (and multiple other spam accounts) have been suspended.

"I'll just dist-upgrade to bionic", thought I. Two days later, Mastodon is back up and running with no data loss. Apologies to anyone impacted.

When a smol, I took pen and paper on car journeys, held the pen to the paper, braced as close to neutral as possible against gravity, and let the inertia of the journey draw lines. I wanted to see whether a journey had a repeatable 'signature'. Today, that's how INS systems work.

News outlets trying to fight fake news with short videos and a call to "share this to fight fake news" are getting on my tits. What you want to be doing is saying "consider whether you trust us, evaluate our sources, and make a good sharing decision", but them metrics tho, right?

Facebook revenge porn “upload your nudes” thing - I understand what they’re trying to do & the intention is good. However the premise of giving Facebook, of all companies, private content is daunting. Needs to be perceptually hashed client-side, and only the hashes, or if content is really needed, machine-usable but human-unfriendly content (eg blurred thumbnails) sent and stored.
