These slugs create and

Wondering how Evgeny Lifshitz accomplished quite so much in his career - turns out it helps to have a brother doing the same job and also naming things "the Lifshitz X" πŸ€”

Every time I receive a PDF from a bank/insurance/whatever that says "we protected it by passwording it with you lastname + dob" I sigh. But I've never checked to see how easy / time consuming it is.

I tested with hashcat + list of surnames(github) + pdf I just received: 47s

🌊ANOTHER WATER SHADER ALERT🌊

I've been meaning to make a stylized ocean shader for a while, so I'm glad @weareGamkat@twitter.com gave me the opportunity to make one for them ✨

12 Gerstner waves and lots of light fakery will get you quite farπŸ‘€

"The value in marvelous pursuits lies in their self-creation which evades both use-value and exchange value... it is very difficult for capitalism to recuperate them precisely because they are so useless."

I don't consider myself an anarchist, but I enjoyed this.

"Their Bionic Eyes Are Now Obsolete and Unsupported." A cautionary tale.

More than 350 blind ppl around the world have Second Sight’s implants in their eyes, after the company files for bankruptcy they find themselves in a world in which the technology that transformed their lives is just another obsolete gadget. One technical hiccup and they lose their artificial vision, possibly forever. The gadget also interferes with MRI scans and is expensive/difficult to remove.

So now I'm getting cancelled for letting my son have a little fun in the garage chip fab? The hydroflouric acid is kept in locked cabinets and even then there's calcium gluconate gel handy (HE'S BEEN TRAINED ON HOW TO USE IT)

Fuck this website.

You don't "have something to hide" when you put blinds on your windows or close the door when you're on the toilet, or wear clothes. Privacy isn't about having something to hide, it's not about keeping secrets. It's about being able to choose what you reveal about yourself, and when, and to who, and the other word we have for that is "dignity". Your inherent dignity, as a human being. Privacy is the agency you have over your dignity.

I recently had the pleasure to check out @liberaforms

https://liberaforms.org

I found creating forms to be a straightforward process and intuitive. This #FOSS software that can be #selfhosted or obtained as a service, is a candidate to recommend as ethical alternative to anyone that wants you to use #Google

Remember, and you should mention that too, that #Google Forms is operated by an advertising giant. Why would you send your data to them? Your survey data is shared about. That is crazy.

Darkdrop Coffee: Musky! Explosive! Almost certainly not actually brewed from bat guano! That's just Mr Wines' little joke.
