So are there any libraries out there for parsing/normalising & JSON objects? All the ones I've found seem to be incomplete or not very clear on what they actually do/how to use.

@dredmorbius something like a news aggregator where I can enter a search term and get an rss feed that is updated whenever there's a new article related to that term

So, I just published "Building software together with Git" on my #blog: eliotberriot.com/blog/2019/03/ 🎉

Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!

@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.

The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.

There's an open issue for it here:

github.com/GetTogetherComm/Get

There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.

Can you help?

(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance :blobaww: )

~=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:
- Upper
- Lower
- Number
- Symbol

...of an 8 character password can be guessed in:

~2.5 hours

(8x 2080Ti GPUs against NTLM Windows hash)
