This is an extremely good, straightforward writeup on the LLL basis reduction algorithm that I find myself reading for one reason or another a couple times a year and so now you’re reading it too. kel.bz/post/lll/

Perhaps it is a generational thing and because I started too young in this field but I cannot fathom the incompetence which permeates the industry as a whole.

It is clearly about profit and, before than, incumbents having no incentive to perform at any level but I believe there is a deeper underlying issue: there is simply no desire at any level to “do a good job”.

One wonders if this is not just a warning about the “End of the Empire” just like Rome before the barbarians.

There have been great updates on the patreon so far this month. Whats stopping you?

/* what follows is a horrible bunch of code that builds, from the entries /W, /Index, and /Size in the stream dictionary, a parser for the cross-reference data itself...

deraadt@ changed lib/libc/sys: Document msyscall(2): ld.so can use this (once only) to tell the kernel where libc.so's text segment is, thereby allowing invocation of system calls from that region. An upcoming change will kill the process if a system call is invoked from addresses not explicitly permitted.

Just learned about a woman in computer science history: Elizabeth Fong. She spent her career at the National Institute for Standards and Technology, and is mentioned as attending data standardization meetings in RFC-316 (1972). She was heavily involved in the effort to standardize SQL in the 1980s.

Here's a 2014 interview with her:

And a brief autobiographical sketch on being awarded for 48 years of service at NIST:

Uebermorgen ist der letzte letzte Mittwoch in diesem Jahr, der nicht auf einen Feiertag und in die Congressvorbereitung faellt. Ich darf Euch also ganz herzlich einladen, noch einmal gemeinsam dem Cable of Filth zu huldigen!

I've been spending the last few days writing a PDF parser (reasons) and it's beautiful, but this little example I just threw together to test some new pretty-printing is making me way happier.

Come and jump the fence with me, said the cyan lion.

I never thought I would hear anything so serious from Sacha Baron Cohen. I also never thought this would be the most sense I’ve heard all week. This is why I’m here, I’m sick of supporting exact what he is talking about.

One amazing sign that Signal is gaining more mainstream acceptance is that it’s now the sexting messenger of choice for normal, non-Infosec humans.

for those wondering how to establish trade relations with crows:

- feed crows food A regularly
- when crows decide to bring you gifts, feed them food B
- when crows bring you different categories of gifts, feed them a food-per-category, ex: food C for jewelry, food D for paper money, etc
- crows will recognize these exchange patterns and opt to bring you things in order to acquire desired treats

good luck! 🐦

some thoughts about "OK Boomer" from a GenX perspective

"Zwischen Engagement und Gewalt

Zivilgesellschaftlicher Einsatz, aber auch gewaltbereit, wichtige Quelle des Verfassungsschutzes, aber in Teilen auch „Beobachtungsobjekt“: Die sogenannte „Antifa“ hat viele Facetten. Auch wenn man selbst innerhalb der Szene das Image vom angriffsbereiten Antifaschisten pflegt, ist die Bewegung viel mehr."
