This post is pretty hilarious: person in 2013 baffled by seeing a standard 1960s-1990s compact-cassette 'stop' icon in a 2008 movie, not sure what it could possibly mean.

<< Unlike the Play and Record buttons, which are shown meeting standard interface practices of today, the lineup has that odd orange button that is never shown being used. My best guess, based only on its inclusion with the other two buttons, is that it represents a pause function or stop >>

@coldacid well it’s still here and still transmitting your eternal september hot bad takes so i guess it’s not all bad, señor biff

@liaizon i think it depends on the recognition library. eg the ones password managers on ios use are of different ability

@coldacid this is a very popular and very bad take. please go run software from the 80s if you prefer it-it’s still available-and leave my computers and servers alone.

@tedu i like you best when you are being mean

Oh, this is juicy. There's a SSH bug in some recent version where you must restart sshd after upgrading or it'll refuse new connections. That's a fun way to lose a server

The NSA released the crypt32.dll ECC validation failure 0day to attempt to regain trust from the security community.

They refused to say how long they have known about it.

My theory is that, due to the power of this bug, they would have sat on this only until they detected an independent discovery, and then burned it. They would never burn such a thing if it were their only one, or if it were still believed to be entirely unknown by anyone else. It’s far too valuable an offensive tool.

every time i log into my mastodon instance, i have a lack of new posts in my feed. could anyone recommend good users to follow? discovery is really an issue here.

idea: a web service that you put in your phone number and apple id email and the backend asks apple servers for your imessage pubkeys once per day (as if to imessage you) and emails you every time there is a diff, to detect wiretaps (sending clients don't show key list changes)
