Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!

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

There's an open issue for it here:

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)

Really gotta get my server working properly so I can start playing about with ActivityPub

This is coming from a place of making a living wage but

鈥楥apital stealing the value of my labor鈥 doesn鈥檛 feel nearly as important as capital stealing my LIFE.

40 hours of my week + recovery time. My education choices. Where I can live. Whether I own a pet. Capitalism limits all the wonderful things I could do in life.

I know money can acquire some of these things. I just think the phrase 鈥榗apitalism steals the value of your labor鈥 isn鈥檛 communicating well how much capitalism steals from us.

thank you, @garbados, for writing about "Structural Advantages for Software Developers to Leverage and Destroy"

i always knew software was somehow special, but i didn't realise how much leverage we (could) have

#DearWhitePeople No one wants you to feel guilty. Your fragility is hard enough to deal with without you hamming it up performatively. What we want is for you to acknowledge the systemic advantages you have because of whiteness and maybe even do some work to dismantle those systems that unfairly privilege you.

Everybody should know the basics of plumbing, just in case.

Some #rustlang devs saw it was wrong and made it right.

VSCodium is a MIT-licenced build of Microsoft's VS Code, minus Microsoft branding / telemetry / licensing.


If you absolutely must use VSCode, make sure it's not the worst version of it.

I think it would be nice to help our friends, help each other run social nodes. More blog posts, wikis, services like mastohost. What else?

I can't get any fucking peace in this house

so, i know that some people like follow friday #ff and some people don't

for myself, i'm actually looking for people to follow with socialist/poc/technology intersectional perspectives bc i want to learn from peers in this area

so, please give me some recommendations! also, i'd appreciate this being boosted as well so that i can get some more circulation. in addition, don't hesitate to recommend yourself

Seems it is very difficult to catch a tube at this time of day 9:15
