@kas Yikes, sound like that card should be basked up if it can't give you the same hash twice. Maybe throw clonezilla at it and see how it does.

The term UUID always seemed a bit hyperbolous to me. The universe is very vast. vaster still is we consider that vastness * a universal time scale. :)

@kas Because Webby!. I think a lot of the people developing these things get quickly lost outside of HTTP/JS.

@lucidiot Having heard neither term I'm not sure if you tried shitposting or sithposting. Both are potentially intriguing.

There were a lot of other issues "losf" was just the last straw.

Their GUI client is even worse. Basically I gave up on the whole mess when the CLI (and thus GUI) needed lsof to compile. Requiring lsof is very questionable for a privacy oriented app.
[4 weeks ago]
@johanbove I was doing that with keybase for a while but their client (cli) is a huge bloated POS (I was building from source and watching in horror as it pulled parts from aall over) T.

as an exapmle I've had an X-PGP-Key: header in my e-mails forever. I have a copy of public my key on my webserver, and on the public keyservers.
[4 weeks ago]
@kas Interesting stuff. I do love reading RFC's. But this one feels like a solution without a problem. I have no problem getting my key to people. And newer options like autoucrypt headers make it even easier.
[4 weeks ago]
@kas Yep, sure is.. But still works fine for me. And at the end of the day isn't that what it's all about?

@lucidiot Hope you and everyone else there is OK.

I still call BS on it. and so does ublock Origin which blocks the GIF from being pulled so Clearly I'm not the only one leary of it.
[5 weeks ago]
digging deeper with developer tools show this header coming with the GIF: https://help.duckduckgo.com/duckduckgo-help-pages/privacy/atb/
[5 weeks ago]
Hmmm.. I should check if a cookie comes with that GIF
[5 weeks ago]
in searching around I have seen them say that things under /t/ are for tracking engagement. But that is BS since they just served me the page with the beacon on it.

if you wget either of those you'll have a 1x1 pixel GIF

Still no reply from DockDuckGo Re: the 1x1 web beacon. Not good DDG folks this is a valid question.

The things you notice when using a text only browser.

DuckDuckGo has a 1x1 pixel GIF (classic web beacon) on the bottom of all my search results. Looks like a tracking attempt to me. E-mailed them to ask why.

@von crowdsourced click fraud? re: cfc.io

@von Yes it has always been a struggle to get people other the FLOSS heads to use XMPP. Sad really since it had OTR E2E before other IMs ever even began thinking about E2E

@svf Welcome to #twtxt
[2.8 months ago]
@mdosch yeah, I noticed.. But the Function instead of an alias is still a good hack and one I'll remember. I'll probably just make the 2 line script :)
[2.8 months ago]
@lucidiot Ah! a function instead of an alias. Very clever. I can see this leading to a bunch of new functions in my .bashrc or .profile
[2.8 months ago]
What I'd like is for it to work correctly if I : tweet <a multi word tweet here> . But forget to quote the words of the tweet. Right now if I forget the quotes it sends each word as a seperate tweet instead of gobbling the entire $2-$N as the tweet.
[2.8 months ago]
@mdosh I have a bash alias tweet='txtnish tweet'. If I just say tweet I get to edit the tweet in vim...

@kas How much of a hastle was setting up INN. I'm no stranger to server set-ups but the few times I've pondered it it seemed a bit complicated (tho that would be year and years ago)?
[2.9 months ago]
@kas I fire up tin to read from nntp.aioe.org from time to time.. but definitely not like the early days. I had soo many good conversation on NNTP back in the day. Hopefully it'll find a niche like gopher seems to have.

@kas I use NNTP out of naustalgia from time to time but it is hard to find really good free NNTP servers like back when NNTP was a thing and before it was poluted by binaries.

Liked the term so much I wrote a blog entry for it: http://freemor.ca/2019/08/21-the-sheeplenet
[3.5 months ago]
It will also allow me to say things like "No, No, I'm all over the Internet. I just don't go on the Sheeplenet."
[3.5 months ago]
Why the new term? Because today I relaized that my aversion to the Sheeplenet means that I am gonna be damn near impossible to Phish.
[3.5 months ago]
Sheeplenet: Refers to Google, FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Amazon, etc. Basically the things that 90+% of the population are thinking of when they say Internet.

Which is why I built myself a small SBC based MID (Mobile Internet Device) years ago. All the power of linux at my fingertips. None of the crap. And Way cheaper then a smartphone.

@mdosch It should be noted that IRC is federated (servers talk to servers) just not across "IRC Networks". And XMPP does sometimes require bouncers (just server side) to deal with spambots and asshats that will exploit you...
[5.1 months ago]
@mdosch I'm a big fan of XMPP too. Ran my own server for years. Guess I just see XMPP and IRC as two different things. XMPP -> Hanging with friends, IRC -> local pub/comminuty center/coffee shop
[5.2 months ago]
Yep, long term plan is to monetize Bittorrnet protocol and turn in into just another CDN for the big media folks. Hope if flops hard.
[5.2 months ago]
Uck. looks like my other concern around "Bittorrent Speed" may be well founded.. Straight from the Bittorrent site: "BitTorrent (BTT) allows content creators to connect with their audience, earn and spend digital currency without a middleman."

SuperBowlers coming in with increasing dbs perhaps it'll be a Skip kind of day today as well.

The skip was insane today. Nice QSO with 370 in Ottawa, Ontario. Thats ~ 680km as the crow flies.

@nonlinear got your rough QHT from your Callsign. That'd be an amazing QSL if we could work it. We've got the whole contenent between us.

@nonlinear 11m is license free.. You can probably pick up a nice CB rig for not too much. Throw up a half wave dipole. And then grumble about the fact that it's the solar minimum. :D

@nonlinear No MUC that I know of but there is the #twtxt irc channel on Freenode.

[5.6 months ago]
That may change in the future if I decide to join one of the 11m DXing groups like 9-TC. I've heard some of the 9-TC crew out there but haven't managed to QSL any of them yet.
[5.6 months ago]
@nonlinear if you have an 11 meter capable rig. I'm usually on 27.3850 LSB when the skip is good as "350 Newbrunswick Canada"
[5.6 months ago]
@nonlinear Not a Ham (yet), just gettng back into 11meter CB stuff (AM/SSB) right now. QRP DXing is loads of fun. On the Ham side CW would probably interest me most.

@von Glad you found it. For those of us that like Encrypted mail it removes the complaint of others that setting up encryption at their end is too hard.

@von Ah... mastodon bot. I was thinking something more generic bot wise :)

@von Nice article on twtxt. :) What was your bot up to that warrented a complaint? Are you aware of txtnish and other twtxt clients?

Always fun teasing apart a virus that someone tried to spam me with. Sometimes interesting, often meh. But almost always fairly low detection rates on Virustotal.

... phone # as identifier is a horrible idea from both a privacy and security standpoint. Especially with SIM Swapping becoming a major issue for SMS 2FA.
[1.1 years ago]
... It would also slow down any malicious hacker that got ahold of the database. I'll avoid that program like the plague just because it uses phone #s. Same reason I've never played with #KonTalk.
[1.1 years ago]
@kas Advantage of hashing the phone # (especially with something strong like PBKDF2) Would be that people feel more comfortable that this wasn't just a way to collect a ton of phone #s

@reednj Yes, there is a core group of dedicated #twtxt'ers

My concern was more for "average users" (what ever that is) Who would have a cam and be unaware that From: is meaningless

@mdosch Yep, I'm in the same boat. Laptop doesn't even have a webcam, I'm not on any social media accounts (that they clain to hav stolem contacts from) etc.

Sextortion spammers are taking a new tact. Remind your friends and aquaintances that the From: header is entirely spoofable and proves nothing.

@kas Did more digging after your response Seems to have something to do with the cipher suite. If I go bare bones FF based browser it works. anything with hardened prefs seems to fail.

Actually make that a screen of JS with a thin HTML wrapper. Sorry, if they can't even make a site that drops to plain HTML (even if just to say turn on JS) I am not trusting their security creds.

@kas Re: email security grader.. xlink -> invalid cert (can't load), ok try w3m -> invalid cert. Ok proceed anyway -> screen of raw HTML. I'm gonna trust these guys to tell me if my email is secure?

@enkiv2 The "web" is already decentralized. Peoples use of it is not. It is trivial to set up an HTTP server. people just don't do it.
