Pinned toot

Oh, I never pinned an !

Hi! I'm mostly here for conversations, reflections, and geekery around subjects that catch my fancy. Recently that orbits technology (esp , data services, networks), music (writ large), languages (esp ancient Greek), autism, and general silliness. Structural protection for the marginalized is close to my heart, but I've learned I need to engage gently to stay healthy. I try to keep shitposting to a minimum.

I co-administer .

Note to self: When I'm pushed, my defensiveness gets stridently accusatory and bleeds into unrelated conversations. I feel pretty good about my accuracy, tbh, but I could probably work on recognizing that mental state and adding a diplomacy subroutine.

> We have computed the very first chosen-prefix collision for SHA-1. In a nutshell, this means a complete and practical break of the SHA-1 hash function, with dangerous practical implications if you are still using this hash function.
