For years, renters in Oakland CA have been denied access to the Internet Service Provider with the best service and pricing for their needs. If this has happened to you, EFF wants to know about it. eff.org/deeplinks/2019/02/oakl

Don't let telecom companies mislead you:
* 5G isn't here yet
* There are actual standards for what constitutes a 5G network
* Those standards rely on the fiber infrastructure, and we aren't anywhere near ready for it

~=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:
- Upper
- Lower
- Number
- Symbol

...of an 8 character password can be guessed in:

~2.5 hours

(8x 2080Ti GPUs against NTLM Windows hash)

#Searx is an open source search engine which combines results from 70 other search engines while stripping away their trackers.

You can try it out on any public Searx instance, for example:

searx.me

If you run a server, you can also install your own Searx instance:

asciimoo.github.io/searx

It also works through @torproject if you want an extra layer of privacy.

This article presents what we all kinda know in a very clear way:
- The organizations who pay the highest wages do so because they have the highest income per employee
- This also means they don't employ lots of people
- Those organizations who need lots of people can't pay them much because their income per employee is low

Capitalism doesn't seem to have a solution for this conundrum yet. This is why I believe we need to fundamentally re-think our economic system.

I love the Mastodon meetups, but what if we had a "Fediverse Conference"? Like with talks and stuff?

There could be tracks for technical topics and community topics, maybe a Q&A panel for instance admins. If we held it near Seattle or Portland, we could probably get half the fediverse, lol 😀

The excellent Mastodon/PeerTube/Pleroma app Mastalab has changed its name to "Fedilab", to reflect that it works on many Fediverse services.

Fedilab is available through Google Play and @fdroidorg

The new site is at:
fedilab.app

Their Fediverse account remains the same though, it's still at:
@tom79

(It's also due to get PixelFed support soon.)

Did you know that #Fedilab has a feature that allows to don't take care about text length. It will automatically split the message in replies and add mentions in each messages. Thus it also works with private messages.
To enable it, just go in your settings.
