Who doesn't think of `/etc/init.d/dphys-swapfile restart` when they think `swapon -a`.

TIL: swapoff will turn of swapping in Raspbian, but swapon will not turn it back on. Makes total sense. 🤡

I'm sure the U.S. Army leaving behind enough weapons and military hardware to supply an entire battalion of Taliban soldiers with fresh, modern equipment was just an accident! I mean, who could've known that the base would be looted when you vacate the whole complex in the middle of the night, without telling the Afghan security forces?

"npm audit: Broken by Design" by Dan Abramov overreacted.io/npm-audit-broke

I'm so glad someone finally said this. The current situation is a huge mess.

You see, flying your own plane is better for the planet than taking the literal air bus, even if it's a fucking jet engine.

They're not trying very hard to hide their hypocrisy:

> Private jets will enjoy an exemption through classification of "business aviation" as the use of aircraft by firms for carriage of passengers or goods as an "aid to the conduct of their business", if generally considered not for public hire. A further exemption is given for "pleasure" flights whereby an aircraft is used for "personal or recreational" purposes not associated with a business or professional use.

"It means every instance of Kaspersky Password Manager in the world will generate the exact same password at a given second. This would be obvious to spot if every click on the “Generate” button, in the password generator interface, produced the same password. However, for some reason, password generation is animated: dozens of random chars are displayed while the real password has already been computed. This animation takes more than 1 second, so it is not possible to click several times on the “Generate” button within a second. That is definitely why the weakness had not been discovered before."

Had to harvest some stuff. But there's too much Rosemary and Basil to prune still.

By the way, this thing doesn't just search titles. It's a full-text search over the RFC content, too.

This is probably the fastest RFC search website on the Internet:

Even the motherflippin' WEF is debunking energy FUD these days:

> Comparing this with the energy footprint of “always on” electrical devices in American households estimated at 1,375 TWh/yr, which is 12.1x that of the bitcoin network. Could it be argued that the development of financial inclusion and an open system may be worth the power consumption of 1/12 fraction of American appliances and electronics?

Almost 80% of USD have been printed into existence within just the last 5 years! (Not counting what banks conjured into existence by handing out loans secured by fractional reserve only, or any other fedcoin derivative tokens on the market.)

What could possibly go wrong?
