As #OpenBSD's de-facto wifi maintainer, I first learned about this WPA problem in June. A simple patch was provided which I could commit with slight modifications.

The original embargo was already 2 months long, and then extended again for 2 months.

The generall public (you) were left in the dark about this for at least 4 months.

This is a very sad state of affairs. It takes the industry much too long to apply a simple patch.

From Vimperator to Vimium-FF for a vim-like browser keyboard usage, quite happy so far, more convenient to use letters to open links than numbers. ⌨

Happy FreeBSD day ! I personally like the system and wish it well going forward, if only I could use it @work ! 😈 πŸ’»

I mean, come on. About half the country thinks that democracy and the right to confidential communication is pointless if someone - entirely unrelated from encrypted communication - grabs a truck and stabs people with knives?

How about we ban cars and trucks instead? They even cause unintentional deaths. Much, much more effective than trying to peek into private lives of everybody.

It's not much but if it can spark some interest about ZeroNet it's πŸ†’ . Here's a small blog post I've written over there (obviously you need ZeroNet to access it, see :

@kzimmermann Testing ZeroNet, it's pretty fast ! Found your blog over there. Do you know if site contents get shared even if my firewall is very restrictive (basically INPUT deny if not related/established). I can connect & seed to regular bittorent swarm(s) just fine but here nothing seems seeded (yet?)

if you use Windows, malware/virus attacks are pretty much a given. Use open-source OS: OpenBSD, NetBSD and sane versions of Linux (meaning no systemd)...
