~=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:
...of an 8 character password can be guessed in:
(8x 2080Ti GPUs against NTLM Windows hash)
#Slackware makes me feel like a responsible computer owner. 😃
I will have a new computer for developing #Fedilab :)
I would like to thank you all for your donations or your encouraging messages. You can't imagine how much I feel happy for your precious help!
I chose a Tuxedo computer and @tuxedocomputers offered me a discount on it :)

Big thanks again to all
Gawd, I didn't want to do this, but I really want to try out Fractal (https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.gnome.Fractal)... which means I have to install Flatpak to make it easy and time conscious. I kind of hate Flatpak, but here goes.
I may keep Flatpak after this... maybe not...
@alcinnz I you boosting my browser post made me realize that I haven't tried your browser on my Slackware machine yet! My only issue is that eOS apps don't often build very nicely on Slackware. I am adding yours to my list to try. Midori is _still_ compiling.
Holy cow... mastodon let's you stream the music from my post??? What is this wizardry!?
@bleakgrey introduced me to Kai Engel a few months ago and I just wanted to share his latest album. It is gorgeous.
#FLOSS friends and lovers, jump on in and we'll add some discount to get @tom79 a shiny powerful development machine! ✊
One final push to get @tom79 the funds they need to get a new computer for further development of the app? Anyone have just a few bucks/euros they can throw at him?
@tom79 We got you covered! There's no need to buy Windows licenses. Furthermore our 2 years warranty even allows opening the laptop for hardware upgrades etc.
Core i7, 16GB RAM, 500GB NVMe SSD, French keyboard with Tux on the Super-Key and Linux preinstalled shipping from Germany!
Regular price is at 1.234€ but to support your work on #Fedilab we would offer you some discount...
I think I am actually happy with #XFCE.... I never thought I'd say that. I have been trying to get #LXQt running on my Slackware machine, but in doing so I have finding different tools for XFCE that really are awesome... now, I think I am happy with it.
The only Qt app I am using is #Falkon. I wish there were a better GTK browser out there.
I have just donated to @tom79 's gofundme campaign to allow him to buy a new computer for development of the great Fedilab app!
