I'm not happy with how the Wil Wheaton situation was resolved. An admin was overwhelmed with frivolous reports about him and felt forced to exile him. I've said before that I think it sets a dangerous precedent on how a large group of people can mobilize to drive anyone off the fediverse. Mob rule is universally dangerous: Mods and admins must examine evidence and decide based on wrongdoing and danger, and not on how many times someone was reported.
8-character passwords can now be brute-forced by computers that can try all 6 quadrillion permutations in 2 and a half hours, but really, any good password system should lock the user out after the first quadrillion guesses. By the second quadrillion, it's probably safe to assume that it's not a legitimate login attempt.
Sueprised this is just a Mormon thing, basically the whole singularity idea is super religious anyway—seems logical to combine the two so the things that don’t make sense have an explanation in our current understanding of things (or lack of understanding of things).
TIL that Venus rotates so slowly that if it you were on venus at sunset, you could walk fast enough to keep up with it. You could watch the sunset for as long as you could walk.
I mean you couldn't because Venus is entirely made of fire and lightning and acid and unbelievable atmospheric pressure, and I think there's only a couple sunsets a year. (All the more reason to chase them, right?)
But I still am charmed by this idea of strolling along with the sunset.
~=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)
