Before switching to Tutanota, lots of people want to know what is better in Tutanota compared to other email services. So we've tried to put together a comparison with some competitors. However, as we are not unbiased, we'd like to hear your thoughts on this as well. Thank you for your time and support! 😃

Did a 45-60 minute drawing of @kensanata D&D character using random colours.

Now I gotta run!

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...

A filesystem where each directory can have only one subdirectory.

Last Friday I went to Erasable Inc's 24 hour show at my school (University of Maryland). It was a fun show and I really enjoyed the performers' enthusiasm and dedication to it! I made this sketch of the group to commemorate the event based on a group photo we took.

Idea: Large-scale cracking contests as a sport.

You have an attack team and a defense team. There's some kind of system (Web site, application, database, email, whatever) that is the focus of the whole thing.

The defense team gets a few hours to harden the system, then the attack team gets some time to try to break in and achieve one of several objectives. The attackers get more points the more they accomplish (theft > destruction > DoS). The defenders get more points the longer they hold out.

I attended Bitcamp, a hackathon at my school, this past weekend. My team made a trash can that insults you when you put recycling in, and we won "Most Entertaining Hack!" If you have time, please like our project on devpost so we can win the people's choice award. Or just check out the description because it's indubitably humorous: devpost.com/software/obnoxious

I gave the presentation on digital rights to the Christian fellowship tonight and people said they learned a lot. Some of my friends gave other presentations about mass incarceration, human trafficing, and gentrification, and I learned a lot about those as well. This world is deeply unjust, and whatever your passion is, you will find brokenness in that area. I'll upload a video later, but here are the slides for now: drive.confuzer.cloud/index.php

So far I have:
racial and sexist bias in digital profiling companies (ad targeting, background checks)
cost for a smartphone (and conversely poor people being judged for owning one)
ethical options are harder to find

I'm writing a 5 minute presentation on "Digital Rights for the Marginalized" for my Christian fellowship's series on God's desire for justice. Any recommendations for topics I should mention?

Day 29: I messed up an apt-mirror by having it sync to the wrong folder and it filled up the disk. Fun fact: when a disk is 100% full, you cannot start apache, tmux, etc.
