@utahcon At, it appears it's open registration, pending approval of the application. I thought it was invite-only. I'll fill that out instead.

@utahcon Could you send me an invite to the fostodon.org instance by chance?

Is it just me, or does Brave Search look and feel like Duck Duck Go?

I don't support Tor vanity URLs. Sure, they might be more user friendly, but they open up a door for adversaries to generate look-alike malicious onion sites, as it encourages the user to only check the vanity part and not the whole thing.

No, I'm not going to name the exam, site, or organization, but I guarantee you've all heard of them, and you would also all agree this is 100% on par.

Do be perfectly 100% clear, according to the passwd(1) manpage, the syntax is:

passwd [options] [LOGIN]

So there is no way the exam is insinuating that "N3wPWD4thi$" is a password, because they know that [LOGIN] is a username, right?


I doubt it.

Taking a practice exam, and a question is asking what the following is executing:

# passwd N3wPWD4thi$

The supposed answer "Change the password of the underlying desktop Ubuntu installation".

If the underlying Ubuntu install has a user named "N3wPWD4thi$", then I agree.
