Milk is NOT an effective treatment for tear gas and pepper spray. To treat police chemical weapons you need an unopened water bottle with a sport top and a pair of nitrile gloves.
This is a PSA by your friendly local protest medic. Instructions on how to use this equipment in the thread.
@Ocean22 Holy shit. I've been pondering building an as-libre-as-possible portable computer and I think you just found the perfect aesthetic for it. I especially love the slightly imperfect panel screwing on the right. Gives it that hacked-together feel.
Chaos Engagement-Idee, Weihnachtsmärkte Show more
Idee: Chaos geht auf Weihnachtsmärkte, verkauft dabei leckeres selbst gehacktes Essen, witzige selbst gehackte Weihnachtsdekoration und macht ganz nebenbei Aufklärung bezüglich Sicherheit, Datenschutz, Open Source und Nachhaltigkeit (selbst reparieren und sowas)
Man könnte dann auch noch Spenden sammeln und nebenher auf Floppy-Laufwerken und Scannern Weihnachtslieder spielen!
Is this a thing?
If not: Why isn't it a thing and who wants to make it a thing?

imagine: a 2FA security key with USB-C and a housing that's the same shape and size as the USB-C connector, so it just looks like a little shiny flattened metal tube that you can keep hung on a silver chain around your neck
that would be aesthetic as heck

PROFESSOR: so tell me why are you all are taking this class on social media?
EVERYONE: *some variation on “I like instagram and want a job”*
ME: I’m interested in the ways social media allow companies to assert ownership over organically formed communities… *tents fingers* and how to put a stop to that
PROFESSOR (nervous): …ok
"We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings." - Ursula K LeGuin
Good morning comrades. If you're feeling down, if you're feeling like the spiral we're in it's inevitable and unending, remember: that thinking serves the neoliberal establishment. No act of resistance is too large or too small.
Do something kind and subversive today. Do something that trades in the ineffable.
I love it how in Unix the distinction between "a programmer" and "a system administrator" is kind of a false dichotomy.
It is programmable, through and through. It was designed to be like that from the very start. "Everything is a file" philosophy + universal interfaces like pipes and text + ability to program the system shell (and not just write list pf commands type scripts, but use loops and conditions and variables and functions - which is more than enough to call it programming) means that you can manipulate the system and data in it automatically at almost any level and the integration is easy. It's pretty amazing. #ilovefs
It's a bummer though that we didn't go completely through with it, and didn't apply this concept more deeply like Plan9 did.
So this came up on the feminist Python meetup yesterday and it is a very fun game for anyone with some Linux knowledge. http://overthewire.org/wargames/bandit I'm playing this since then :D
~=8 Character Passwords Are Dead=~
New benchmark from the Hashcat Team shows a 2080Ti GPU passing 100 Billion password guesses per second (NTLM hash).
This means that the entire keyspace, or every possible combination of:
...of an 8 character password can be guessed in:
(8x 2080Ti GPUs against NTLM Windows hash)
