The folks at ABC News really did an amazing job putting together this visual representation of HaveIBeenPwned data, to easily show what's really out there about you.
Fun fact: I tested it both with my old Gmail account that I used for almost two decades (and that I've used to sign up to all kind of services over the years), and with my personal self-hosted email address that I've basically used to only sign up on services that I host myself.
Guess which email address was included in 20+ data breaches and which was included in none? Even if my self-hosted email address is publicly listed on the web, it doesn't appear in any data leaks.
Of course, that doesn't mean that my services are airtight and impossible to break. It just means that the larger the pool of users, the bigger the efforts that criminals put. You don't put in a few days or weeks of work to get your hands on a db dump with a few tens of users.
The best way of avoiding your personal information to be leaked in data breaches is to avoid the large services that are most likely to attract most of the breachers' efforts.
E2EE is really driving governments crazy. Political representatives are becoming morbidly obsessed with spying into their citizens' conversations and they've stopped using excuses.
Spain has apparently stopped pretending that they're doing it for the kids (that's always been a dumb excuse to start with). They're clearly stating that the government needs the ability to decrypt everybody's conversations, period.
I'd propose a simple idea for political representatives who talk against encryption. If any of them ever says again "it should possible for governments, and nobody else, to safely break E2EE, without any risks for privacy and security", they should be fired on the spot.
I'm sick of hearing boomer politicians with no clue of how computers work repeating this stale piece of bullshit again and again. I'm sick of their surveillance morbidness paired with their deep arrogance and ignorance. An incompetent employee who doesn't know what he/she is talking about and is in a position where their ignorance can do great harm should be fired without appeal, period.
- 2 new Noctua case fans, they're actually silent during normal usage
- new Corsair AIO water cooler, it works pretty well
- new nonsensical Corsair iCUE RGB controller, why do I need this
- 2 new Corsair fans for the AIO radiator, it makes some noise but overall is still bearable under normal scenarios
- 1 cut on my hand
- 1 panic attack over a standoff not screwing properly
but at least my computer's overall under 60 degrees Celsius, at most 70 degrees in-game.
@BrodieOnLinux If the way to make Linux popular is to make it nothing like Linux, then most current Linux users will just move to BSD, as the joke goes.
I run Linux because it is the easiest way to run a mostly #FreeSoftware OS, I use Arch because it gives me a feeling of true control over my computing experience, I run DWM because I love how barebones it is, and it only does what I want it to do.
If the only way to make more people use Linux is to make it Windows, than please don't.
Also I'm glad @CJLinuxGamer and @atlas_core both have alts outside of that instance too.
The real takeaway from the #Twitter bug restoring deleted tweets should be in recognizing that those tweets were never actually deleted
Mastodon was really meant for a large audience, but I haven't really enjoyed it so I'm back here.
