Random reminder to use a password manager if you aren't already! It'll help you stay safe online by using long, unique passwords for each service you use.

While LastPass or 1Password are great choices, I prefer KeePassXC

My getting-started guide:

OK, I just pushed a sort-of working version of...

A Rust CLI that checks the passwords of a KeePass database against the Have I Been Pwned password list

Currently it queries the HIBP passwords API, but I hope to make it work completely offline (once the database finally downloads...)

blergh how do I check if a Rust String is initialized or not?

@schlink I started using KeepassXC a few months ago, and password management has become much easier and more secure for me.

Alright, here it is: I am going to be making a zine every month this year out of newly public domain materials from 1923. I just launched a Kickstarter for subscriptions, which are capped at 100! Please back and share :)

tl;dr, in Rust 1.32.0, running

fn main() {
let x = 5;



[src/] x = 5

I can't change my passwords until my dog comes home from work because she's the one that keeps up with those things

Question: Do y'all want the compose column to be sticky when you scroll horizontally? There's this submission:


why is cargo doc so slow. it takes 5 minutes when i change anything in my project. there's definitely something wrong there. i'm not very good at macros so. how do i know why it's slow

not sure how i feel about recommending that people start using commercial software :face_think_shit:

like... if you're already using it, fair enough, but i wanna get people to use libre stuff! :ancomheart: 💻

FYI I should have referred to this as "the large list of emails/and passwords". It's not clear if the breaches themselves were recent.

From Motherboard: "The ‘Biggest EVER’ Collection of Hacked Passwords Is Not That Bad"

a huge multiple-site password breach? oh cool, cool, not like i care haha

just gonna... increase my transform rounds on my keepass database here. no reason.
