The new Chrono Romancer EP, Krieger, is available for download on bandcamp and streaming on all major streaming platforms!
(Just search for "Chrono Romancer" 😃 )

My wife, our friends, and I worked hard to make this happen. Give it a listen!

I'm still looking for a good instance to post it up on...

I have a sudden odd inspiration to write songs inspired by peeps I follow here on Mastodon; just name each track by their username and see what happens...

Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Another bit of hacker history for you, if you didn't live through it:

Remember the Morris worm of 2 November 1988?

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morris_w

The one that helped inspire one of the movies hackers love to hate, _Hackers_?

The Morris worm used a couple of exploitation techniques that we consider largely obsolete these days, namely, buffer overflows and stack corruption for remote code execution. In 1988.

In 1988, hacking was pretty much "guess lots of passwords until you get lucky." That's it. That's what we had.

rtm (Robert Tappan Morris, Jr.) was writing RCE exploits in 1988. In comparison, _Smashing the Stack for Fun and Profit_ by Aleph1 (www-inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/~cs) was published in Phrack issue 49 (8 November 1996). Think about that for a moment. He was about seven years ahead of the state of the art for the hacker community.

RTM's father, Robert Morris senior worked for NSA between 1985 and 1994. He helped write some of the security standards that we take for granted these days, whether or not we realize that they were published in the Rainbow Books. He was also a Chief Scientist while at NSA.

There is an excellent chance (more likely a certainty) that most of the exploitation techniques that the hacker community takes for granted were discovered, perfected, and weaponized years before they were effectively rediscovered by the underground (or the professional infosec community). rtm certainly knew about some of those techniques, though exactly how remains a matter of speculation.

Are you okay with that state of affairs?

Love is the Law, Love under Will.

Which #license should I start using? I'm currently using MIT most of the times but I am looking for license like MIT but that forces people to give me credit at least.

New post on my blog: "Self-hosting VSCode"

If you like neither VSCode nor Docker, pretend this blog post never happened 😄

For everyone else: this was actually quite an interesting experience and I love this setup!

I left my phone (Samsung Note 5) in the rain, so I put it in rice for 2 days. When I turned it on it did some kind of factory update thing--which got stuck and I had to manual reset it. Everything seems fine but my system theme is white instead of black now and I have no idea how to change it.

Played around with #godotengine 2D last night to see what I could do with lighting and shadow to give flat shapes an illusion of depth.

Found a bunch of unexpected cool stuff like bloom and time mapping post processing effects, and was kinda blown away with what’s possible with minimal effort over just a few hours.

Success! I have nine of the levels from the game reimplemented, though the layouts are slightly different to make it more interesting. Also new HUD, pickups, and other cool stuff. Technically ready for a prerelease, though I want to add more levels.

Side-effects of boring meetings may include... writing a VAT calculator in POSIX shell scripting *during* the meeting 😅 🤣

It just lets you add or substract VAT rates. Nothing else. Its first version helped us through the meeting, actually... Extended it a bit and boom! pushed 😎

This is a trivial script, but hey it was just for fun. Never lose the fun in coding!

My Gemini capsule is back up, but it required me to regenerate the certificates, so your client may complain that the certificates don't match.

It was me, not a malicious actor. Be at ease.

So the (78 who saw and decided to respond to this poll) people have spoken.

But now, I want to know *why* is it not okay to use Discord? Like really, why should I not use it?

Fuzzy-wuzzy feel good post.

I'm so glad I switched from mastodon.cloud to fosstodon.org.

The community here is so much more engaging, it's easier to find "toots" and accounts I'm interested in, and overall brings me back to the early days of Identica before it switched to pump.io.

Anyway, thanks for the awesome experience. I'm loving it so far.

If you know any accounts in the topics of , , , , , , etc., let me know.

Are you interested in the idea of the @fossandcrafts Hack and Craft (virtual community group: fossandcrafts.org/hack-and-cra) but can't attend our first session on June 19 at 15:00 UTC? Give us feedback asynchronously!

What timeframes on a Saturday would you generally consider reasonable to attend a virtual event?

Israeli politics 

For those familiar with the situation, do you think this new Israeli gov't is going to be a net positive or net negative for the country, its citizens, and those who deal with Israel? (Palestine included)
