TFW you're trying to improve the safety and security of a software system and you get several people saying it's not possible to make it perfect, so it's not worth even trying.

pcal is a calendar-generation program, which creates great looking postscript output.
Example: A4 landscape calendar for Oct, with Monday as first day.
pcal -B -F monday -o Oct2018.ps -P a4 10 2018

Checking out of the hotel soon. It has been another really great Tor meeting where I have met a lot of new awesome people. The Tor Metrics roadmap is not yet finalised but it is almost there. I will be publishing the slides from my session once I get home and will share them here too if you are interested.
Thanks to the meeting organisers, the hotel staff, all the participants and everyone else who helped make this amazing meeting happen.

Pokémon was honestly years ahead of it's time by not only inventing cloud storage but also noting that it's just someone else's computer.
Replacement seems happy. Not done this in a while.

I don't know my password. My password manager knows my password. I dont have my password manager on the bus or when I'm at the shops. Mobile apps seem to assume everyone remembers their passwords. Bandcamp thinks I know my PayPal password, which makes me very sad.
