Damit die Europäische Bürgerinitiative für ein Bedingungsloses erfolgreich ist, brauchen wir in Deutschland 67.680 UnterstützerInnen.
Das können wir doch schnell voll machen!
Unterzeichne jetzt auf der offiziellen Plattform der EU: eci.ec.europa.eu/014/public/

Die Stromanbieter wissen um dieses Problem und bieten teilweise sogar an, dass man weitere Vertragspartner*innen mit auf die Rechnung schreiben lassen kann.

Der dämliche PDF-Parser von der Behörde, mit der sich die Mitbewohnerin leider beschäftigen muss, frisst das natürlich nicht.

Habt ihr gewusst, dass man in Frankreich seine Wohnadresse nicht etwa mit einem Personalausweis nachweist, sondern mit seiner Elektrizitätsrechnung?

Und ich jetzt meiner Mitbewohnerin eine eidesstattliche Erklärung ausgestellt habe, dass sie hier wohnt, weil die Stromrechnung zufällig auf meinen Namen läuft?

Um ihre Adresse nachzuweisen braucht sie also die Stromrechnung, meine eidesstattliche Erklärung, und eine Kopie meines Personalausweises.

Macht mich jedes Mal fertig.

I should note that university mentioned they will have a meeting to decide about contact tracing and send an announcement with the decision. But next week is already week 3 of the semester and no decision yet. Which is why I took initiative with this intermediate solution for my classes.

I am currently teaching three times a week at a University in Paris, on site, groups of 12 to 40 students.

The best I could quickly come up with for contact tracing is using Moodle's attendance module to take note who was attending class, and manually removing data two weeks after the class.

What do you think about that?

I want that in case of a Covid event in my class, the attendance data is accessible even if I am unavailable for whatever reason.

Masken sind Restmüll

@guenther @kora random.org is super cool :)

However it is not usable as a "random oracle" in the cryptographic sense: I want to give arbitrary values as input, and if the random oracle is called with the same inputs, I want that the same randomness is returned. (that's one theoretical model for hash functions that is frequently used in cryptographic proofs).

I appreciate that in the context of SEPA, "payment initialization" is abbreviated PAIN. It is certainly a pain to get SEPA XML for direct debit to work. (with CiviCRM and a random small German bank, the latter of course provides no useful documentation or error messages)

@kora Oh cool, finally!! First steps to implement the Global Universal Composability framework!! (If I recall correctly it requires, roughly, everyone to use the same one-and-only global random oracle) Now we need to convince everybody to use your service for every hash function call.

@guenther @eichkat3r Ha, this is ... kind of amazing and scary at the same time.

@ionathanch A couple of days ago a friend of mine pitched an idea to me, and unfortunately I had to tell him that a CCS 2019 paper did the exact thing (I had seen the talk and remembered it well, was a good presentation). After a first disappointment we agreed that at least it was done only last year and not like 10 years ago. Like, if the ideas, even if they turn out to be already done, are at least converging to more recently relevant research questions, maybe that's good?

The university in Paris at which I am teaching forgot to organize and pay people for unlocking the classrooms in the mornings at 8h30 and also apparently could not be bothered to find an intermediary solution within 5 days already.

Which means entire classes of students are waiting outside closed classrooms, alongside with the teaching assistants.

@damalstm Nice, 10 Worte Klartext, also keine (erkennbare) Verschlüsselung erlaubt.

@tunda Gut zu hören, dass es wieder läuft! Sicherst du mit dem Backup Dateien, die von deinem Standarduser nicht lesbar sind? Das könnte es erklären. Warum sich das allerdings plötzlich geändert hat, bleibt dann noch offen.

Which basically amounts to BOINC only running during nights. Makes me think about if it is weird to leave the smartphone running all night actually, but I guess most smartphone users are doing this anyway?

On my laptop I am no longer running BOINC because I need this precious RAM and CPU myself. Also my laptop is not running through the night.

I installed on my smartphone half a year ago. It's running only while charging. Turns out I indeed mostly forgot that I set this up, which is good because that means apparently it is not getting in my way during daily phone usage.
