"Remote login is a lot like astral projection."
We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.
Which is your primary browser on your computer?
Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

With Hong Kong being such a hot topic, are FOSS licenses recognized or effective in Hong Kong or China? I wonder what the software landscape is like over there. It would be discouraging if your FOSS project got shutdown b/c someone copied it all and claimed your license was worthless. That said, there's probably the same sort of problems with FOSS here in the US.
I found it! Looks like there was a CTF writeup that used my module. Nice!
Real hackers enable the evil bit on all their outgoing IPv4 packets! My RFC 3514 kernel module has gotten a lot of traffic recently. I wish I knew why...
My mind is being blown by what you can do with SAT/SMT solvers in Python. You can use them to solve sudoku puzzles in just a handful of lines! I'm starting to wonder what you can't do with them...
The Librem 5 smartphone -- running GNU/Linux -- is "confirmed for Q3 product shipping."

# This is one of my fav Linux commands to show people. Watch those interrupt counters climb up!
After seeing how CSS and JS can track your mouse movements I decided to compile #firefox myself. I commented out two lines to disable all CSS hover and HTML/JS onmouse(enter,leave) events. Pretty neat! Although I have no way to turn it back on for those sweet Wikipedia page previews... I hope I can figure out how to make it a per page option.

Interesting, looks like they are taking the principles of FOSS and applying them to hardware and #electricalengineering design. Still, I think it's not exactly what I'm looking for. Is there an #ee community like the FSF that allows hobbyists and EEs alike to share and freely license their schematics/designs? I don't have any extraordinary schems (mostly for guitar pedal circuits), but I think it would be incredibly cool to have a site and community that did just that.
The NSA now have source posted for their reverse engineering platform, Ghidra. Last I checked it was an empty repo. Seems to work well! I disassembled a small program I had laying around and it eye-opening to see in action. Time to poke at some other software I have...
