Mark lost his mind. Just 2 weeks after admitting it stored hundreds of millions of its users’ own passwords insecurely, Facebook is demanding some users fork over the password for their outside email account as the price of admission to the social network. https://www.thedailybeast.com/beyond-sketchy-facebook-demanding-some-new-users-email-passwords
@Gargron are there any plans to improve the moderation tools in Mastodon? Our instance has just been hit with a rather large spam account campaign and the only way to clean them up is to go into each profile one at a time and suspend them.
Bulk action functionality is desperately needed. Some kind of integration with services like "StopForumSpam" would also be beneficial.
Please #StopUsingMedium. It’s really annoying and makes me not read your content, no matter how good it is. Not specific for this author. This a general statement.
Some banks are trying to standardize an intentionally weak variant of TLS that enables easier tapping of encrypted communications. Just so that they don't need to overhaul their legacy security architecture based on capturing all traffic on the wire. The discussion in IETF was an interesting read.
To elaborate on this, here's an algorithm how to DDoS someone and break the Matrix network at the same time:
* Get a domain
* Get a wildcard certificate
* Spawn a stripped down instance with $randomname.yourdomain.org that can only talk to matrix.org.
* Send a join to #matrix:matrix.org
* Redirect $randomname.yourdomain.org to your target you want to DDoS
* Kill the instance, repeat with another $randomname
Now 2000 - 5000 servers will constantly hammer your target with TLS handshakes.

Hi, I'm giving mastodon another go, this is like the third time I'm coming to mastodon to try things out.
I am a code quality engineer who writes spaghetti code on personal projects. Guess that defines me pretty well (￣▽￣)ノ

I'm a developer into system programming on GNU/Linux. I find native development most rewarding but I occasionally dabble in web development too. I'd like to learn more about computer science. I'm also curious about graphics programming and demoscene. I also enjoy good stories and fiction.
tinywl has been merged into the wlroots tree:
If anyone is looking for a simple example compositor based on wlroots, here it is. It's in the public domain too so use as much of the code as you want to bootstrap your own compositor project!
A developer who likes system programming, C++ and Linux. Interested in graphics too.
