The single best sourdough discard recipe I've found: pour discard in bowl, add salt and herbs to taste, cook in a medium-hot pan with a dash of oil. When the bubbles start to break on top, flip. This has absolutely changed my life.

One nice thing about being stuck at home is it makes it a lot more comfortable and secure to explore new looks and wardrobe options. Leggings, yoga tops, tennis skirts and skorts.... I'm getting my home clothes and activewear in order.

Well, that's the first time I've ever watched my stack overflow right into the global data area. Only took 20 years of a career. Kids, this is why we have memory protection.

It's 2020. Why does it feel like such a goddamned miracle every time I get the network printer to work?

Something that's been weird during lockdown is how much I've stopped using social media. I get up, I drink tea, I work, I do stuff with the fam, I game, I go to bed. At a time when people seem to be suing social media more, I'm using it far, far less.

@epilanthanomai Just a quick heads-up that I got an AWS connectivity alert for . Now, obviously I'm telling you on here, so it appears everything is up for right now, but be sure to keep an eye out.

Today I learned that many/most color laser printers layer an array of yellow microdots on top of documents 🔬

This Machine Identification Code encodes a print date and a serial number unique to the machine. It only became public knowledge in 2004, ~20 year after deployment 😑

The Technical University of Dresden released a tool 2 years ago to layer on _even more dots_ to render the MIC unreadable and aid whistleblowers publishing

Storyteller: ((tosses die)) "You have failed your rouse check and gain one hunger. The Beast claws up your spine until you feel it in your throat, growling."


Storyteller: "Indeed. Strength + Brawl, please."

"Now some people would say, 'This glass is empty.' But other people would say, 'This glass hasn't been filled yet, but when it has, I'll like what's in it!' Those are the people we're looking for. The people who look on the bright side. The people who want to like things." --Michael Peppe, "AD"

This might be sign that I'm becoming a fossil, but I am regularly confused when I discover that Ubuntu doesn't include lynx by default.

Hi, ! We had a short-ish outage today when our AWS instance got high and wandered off. I was able to restart it sooner than usual because we have service alarms now! :)

@epilanthanomai You've got a powerful knowledge of music. I presume you've heard "New York, New York" by MCL before?

Hi, ! We apologize for the outage that appeared to last through most of last night. Our AWS hosted machine became unreachable, but a reboot seems to have brought it back up.


Hello there, I'm REZ.

I'm a demoscener since 1993, actually member of a group named RAZOR 1911 as coder.

I'm still living in the 80's, that's probably why I love so much big pixels and lowfi musics!

One of my latest work was a software 3D engine running on the lovely PICO-8 fantasy console:

*sheepishly goes up to the recruiter* is... there a bottom internship?

> 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. To put it in another way: all attacks that are practical on MD5 are now also practical on SHA-1. Check our paper here for more details.
