I just mistyped a keyboard shortcut that caused my computer to say «I AM FILO AND EVERYONE LOVES ME» at full volume.
I have no memory of leaving a script attached to some random shortcut, and I can't find the setting anywhere.
Young me was a narcissistic asshole2
One day, I spoke to my team which yubi or nitro key to get.
Senior (s) : but what do you need it for?
Me (m) : for encryption. And securing our password managers. Stuff, I guess.
S : encryption is not gonna be a thing. It hasn't and it won't.
M : *leaves*
I've been so baffled I couldn't cope with the situation.
A few weeks later I left the company. There were too many of such people and those products.3
Long story shot,
I was the coder of a time machine and a bug took me 10 minute to the past. 10 minutes later I got to the same bug and got teleported again. This continued a while. I woke up later.4
OpenSSH 8.2 is out. This release removes support for the ssh-rsa key algorithm. The better alternatives include:
1. RSA SHA-2 signature algorithms rsa-sha2-256/512. These algorithms have the advantage of using the same key type as "ssh-rsa" but use the safe SHA-2 hash algorithms (now used by default if the client and server support them).
2. The ssh-ed25519 signature algorithm.
3. ECDSA algorithms: ecdsa-sha2-nistp256/384/521.
In this release, support for FIDO/U2F hardware tokens. Also noteworthy, a future release of OpenSSH will enable UpdateHostKeys by default to allow the client to automatically migrate to better algorithms.19
Do arcade games (Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Berserk) count? I got my allowance in quarters.
Atari 2600? Ti/99 with a tape drive to play a game at my friend's house?
Having to buy a 5.25" floppy in the HS bookstore for typing class on the TRaSh-80s and finding a way to put a break in the program and save it to disk so I got top score on assignments?
Tron. That's what really did it for me. To this day, I like to imagine there is a vast world inside the computer.
After a BASIC programming class in HS, I got an Apple IIGS and started writing my own load menus for these little games I'd find around FIDO and newsgroups. Instead of "PR#6, brun gumball" a nice styled menu would show where you could press the number of the game you wanted to play.
Who remembers sharing hacked PCP accounts to dial out of state BBSes?

What's a good password manager for Linux?
A few (optional) conditions (in order of preference):
1. It's free
2. It supports ssh, gpg, etc.
3. It has a GUI (a nice one with gtk/qt support)
4. It's (properly) secure
5. It has FIDO U2FA support (i.e. supports physical security keys like Yubikey or Solo)
6. It has a browser extension
7. It's compatible/non-conflicting with gnome-keyring17

I was about to print a bigass document. Wanted to save paper, and saw my printer had a two side mode. I try it out. A few pages print, then the driver says PAUSED - RELOAD PAPER. This is normal, as double sided printing is not automatic. Underneath, there is a message:
[Printing - Manual Duplex: Please reinsert pap...]
I try to resize the window to read the message.
THE MOTHERFUCKING WINDOW WAS NOT RESIZEABLE!!!
are these products not fucking tested???
I find a guide saying the paper should be reinserted with no flips, then the "continue" button should be pressed.
The button was not in the driver UI, or on the printer. Further research showed that you are supposed to:
OPEN THE TONER CHANGE DOOR AND CLOSE IT AGAIN TO CONTINUE A PRINT
what fuCKING designer thought this shit through!?#@?#$!
Devrant got my hopes up when I got on and saw the fancy new website.
Of course, the webapp is the same old interface :(
new site looks great though!!3
I'm trying to waste time reading rants, but don't get half of them because our work wifi network is too slow to load pictures
Any one ever heard of the Solo? It's basically an open source FIDO compliant U2FA usb (with planned support for PGP/SSH key storage!).
The guys who made it are now miniaturizing it into the "Somu" (Secure Tomu).
Please support it! It's a great project and a great (and cheap) addition to basic system security.
