"holy balls. this is incredible

the [libssh] vulnerability literally works like this:

me: "can i log in?"

server: "no. you need a password."

me: "hacker voice i'm in"

server: "login successful. you're in""

I feel like this article somewhat misses the point. theguardian.com/games/2018/oct
You could also very easily ask "Why don't period dramas move on, stuck, as they are, with their olden day aesthetic"

I've fallen down the rabbit-hole of starting to graph "just a couple of things" on my home network, and now I will be spending the rest of my life creating grafana dashboards...

I don't have the money, or a place to keep/use it, but I want it. Maybe I can come up with an installation...

I did this a few years ago, and can recommend.

This winter, the behind the scenes tours of Tower Bridge return, offering access into the engineering spaces, and the huge bascule chambers under the main bridge.

I'll just leave this here without any comment...

Note to self: when you run all of your browser traffic through a socks proxy, the browser extension which talks to a local service running on 127.0.0.1 will struggle to work until you add a proxy exception for localhost.

On the plus side, I've now got Joplin ( joplin.cozic.net ) fully up and running, and am confident that it'll be a good evernote replacement for me.

Is there a version of this windows 10 update which *doesn't* send stuff back to Microsoft?

Unexpected WFH today, so using my laptop, not my work macbook, and when it was time for the video conference, I discovered that my £80 ebay X220i is such a low spec that it is without webcam.

This pleases me, and means that my procrastination in buying a new privacy cover was well worth it ;-)

Kudos to the RaidSonic customer service team over in Germany. Replied within a couple of hours to my "is it possible to get replacement system boards for my icy box enclosure" email.

Unfortunately for me, the answer, after providing the serial number, was "that’s from first generation and old. We can’t replace this PCB".

Fortunately for me, I have replacement capacitors, and voltage regulator IC in the post, so fingers crossed I can coax it back to life.

Spent the weekend tidying up the flat, and managed to clear off the dumping ground^W^Wbreakfast bar enough to do "a art"...

At some point, there's functionally no difference between enabling exploitative incentives, harmful behavior, and societal degradation vicariously through the products and services we create and actually going out and committing those acts ourselves

Software engineers in particular are masters of deflecting responsibility for the things we create

That's not something to be proud of

Looks like the "weekend project" was actually a pretty quick Friday evening project instead...

Three cheers for leveling up my privacy stats. Now to spend the rest of the weekend trying to fix my utterly broken docker install ;-)
