Didn't take too many pictures of Sydney, since it rained pretty much the entire time I've been here. I think they need the rain more than I need the sun though. So no photos of the succulent garden (who wants to see a wet cactus?) or sad elephants at the zoo. And I've got pictures of pretty much everything on my other, other phone anyway. Also discovered my newer phone has the disagreeable habit of changing screen brightness as I'm framing a shot, so some of the exposures are all wrong. Ah well. Adios!

I took snippets of the DEC BASIC-8 manual for the TSS/8 operating system and inserted them into a poetry generator. This is the poem. (The randomizer runs the same every time (no seeds though I could fake it) so this is in a sense *the* output.)

An old CRT computer screen, black background, white text. The following poem, in all caps:

@adams seems to be about the same.

And 25ft is probably overkill. 15, or even 10, would be sufficient to hide the case behind something solid enough or around the corner.

Just musing since it's been a long time since I've needed to touch a desktop while sitting at my desk (cdrom, etc.).

@farhan go. I think there's an initial hurdle where you aren't sure how activitypub works, and you don't get a lot of feedback on interop issues. It just doesn't. But you can get something minimally viable without too much effort. Maybe a few weekends. Then it's just a never ending amount of refinement. (Organizing threads, etc.)

Microsoft's Chain of Fools

Microsoft's Chain of Fools


> This post is a quick day one recap of what we know so far about CVE-2020-0601, what Microsoft has dubbed the Windows CryptoAPI Spoofing Vulnerability. I haven’t heard a catchy name yet, so I vote for Chain of Fools with a dutiful nod to the queen of soul, Aretha Franklin. The analyses presented (my own included) are only as good as the information we have on hand, which so far is still fairly thin on technical details. This is by no means intended to be exhaustive or authoritative, just a curated selection of information sources from people who are technically credible or experts in the field.

The three people at the table next to me have been conducting a meeting for five minutes, and I have no idea what it's about. Pull up the email, review the feedback, refresh our objective, realign the mission, orient the target. Laying the foundation for greatness, surely. I can't wait to find out what it is they're working on.

Software developers, project maintainers please listen to my plea:

If you break your users's config because it's insecure, YOU DID A GOOD THING FOR THE PLANET

Change the defaults. Make them better. It's more important admins wake up to a broken service that is easily corrected than having severe data loss, cryptolockers, etc etc destroying this society.

It's also kinda amazing that the LAX website loads a megabyte of javascript to tell me that it works better in chrome or firefox. Has no one considered that people trying to get the hell out of the airport may not have a fiber connected desktop with a variety of browsers at their disposal?

Today's flight was made a little extra thrilling by the fact that the noise cancelling on my Sony headphones is adjusted by an app, and the app requires you to agree to the privacy policy, and it can only do this while it is connected to the internet.

Apparently most, or even all, AMD Epyc processors have 4x 10gbe on chip, but it's disabled on all but the designated 3000 series processors for embedded systems. And it's hard to find systems that actually connect them to the outside world. Most just seem to still rely on a separate 1gbe controller.
