~=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)
Last year, I joined my partner on a work trip to BSDCan. Just for fun. A tutorial partner kind of gave up on me. In July, I bought a used x250, installed OpenBSD, and started using it everyday.
Seven months (to the day) later, I became an OpenBSD dev. I just made my first commit. \o/
Not a bad speedrun! Thanks for the warm welcome and generosity, everyone. :D
I'm tooting from RISC OS on my raspberry Pi (via Brutaldon)
Any #RISCOS folks out there want to give some tips to a noob?
Like, how do I highlight and remove text? Is there a better web browser than netsurf? (If not, that's AOK with me, I just want to know.) Is there a video editor or an audio editor?
I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to make use of RISC in my daily life.
Dear kids in Washington State: you can make an appointment with your doctor, or walk into a clinic or ER, and get vaccinated. You don't need permission from your parents. You don't have to wait until you are 18. If the health care provider gets confused, the magic phrase is "Mature Minor Doctrine", and point out that not wanting to catch measles is sign of sufficient maturity.
Please reshare, and copypaste this any place this would be useful.
‘HTML, CSS and our vanishing industry entry points’
this says so many things i agree with, i hardly know where to begin pulling quotes. web design and dev used to be something you could organically transition toward from a variety of other roles or hobbies. there was a broad, porous space between laypeople and ultra nerds. this zone created a culture i was able to grow and succeed within. it is now nearly gone.

Use Google Drive, but encrypt everything.
Create separate, fake Facebook and Twitter accounts for anything that requires linking to a social media profile.
Buy locked-down hardware that's sold at a loss and then jailbreak it.
Jailbreak all your friends' devices.
Hack the ink cartridges on your printer so you can refill them.
I don’t want to get people too excited, but my email letting FOSDEM know about those conference videos I’m posting on PeerTube has started a positive discussion on their mailing lists about possibly supporting the platform. 🤩
I will continue uploading as planned for now as it may not happen, and even if it does there’s still value in not having to manually sift through every video yourself to find the good ones. 👍

Dead Kennedys - Nazi Punks Fuck Off (1981) https://wilwheaton.tumblr.com/post/182638338699/fallingsystem-dead-kennedys-nazi-punks-fuck 1/3
It's become clear that I don't have the resources to fight the horrors of this world on my own, that was naive.
I love free software, but working at that level does not help us transition away from the insane capitalist world we're currently in, I want to work at a lower and more human level.
Are there any good socialist and or lgbtq+ organisations that need a programmer, systems engineer or system administrator?
Favorite net radio stations? I like #SomaFM 's selection of stations. I used to like Digitally Imported in the early 2000's, but then they switched to a pay model.
YouTube’s algorithm sent me this gem of a channel this morning: Nybbles and Bytes. It’s one of those PBS-style retro computing shows like Explaining Computers except for two very important differences:
1. The focus is on low level software programming on retro computers
2. The host is a trans femme
This is literally new new favorite channel and I hope anyone interested gives her a subscription because support our family!
