@kuleszdl i think it's got a good connection. The clamp sits tight on the chip.

When it's misaligned I get an error immediately after starting the interaction, but I haven't noticed any corrupted reads or writes (verified by doing the same read twice and diffing the result).

Question. How do you encrypt passwords in a GDPR/DSGVO compliant way, but give it in clear text to the cops when they want it? Asking for a German friend.

And how do you give the IP addresses and user names to the cops (they don't need a court order!) while being GDPR conform?

@kuleszdl got 8 more of those routers to liberate in the next few weeks. So I'll keep spending my time on automating and speeding up the task instead of doing it manually. Hope to also get around to documenting it.

@kuleszdl it's a CH341A device. I got it together with the SOIC8 clamp and a couple of adapters for ~10€ of eBay.

I find it incredibly slow, so that's why I want to try out using a SBC with on-board spi.

Rechtsterrorismus, Hanau, Nachrichten, rant

Ich habe Angst. Nicht weil ein einzelner Rechtsextremist Menschen brutal ermordet hat. Sondern weil es mir Sorgen macht, wie diese Gesellschaft auf solche Anschläge reagiert. Rechter Terror ist als solcher klar zu benennen. Und mit Faschisten redet man nicht. Punkt. #Hanau

My password managers passphrase generator doesn't seem to be random. It knows exactly what I'm up to, or how comes the generated passphrase is "quit-device-frying-[...]"?

Wrote a little script to automate it. There's lot's of room for improvement, but it works for now.

I still want to try using a (or similar ) instead of the USB spi-flasher to see if it's considerably faster.

Are you a #rust developer?
are you working on a #FLOSS project in Rust?

Even if not, please :boost_ok:​ my informal mini survey far and wide!

Are you…

@nhr @alexbuzzbee nobody asked me but I think if the point of leaving old code is to see what it's supposed to be doing then it seems tests would answer that question.

I would delete the old code and just leave a comment with the commit where the code was most evocative if that really helps someone.

dwagenk boosted

Write code to be clear and correct first. If you need to optimize, you can do that later. When you do, maybe keep the original code around in comments, so you can see what's supposed to be happening.
