that without full disk encryption or locking down your config, an attacker with physical access to your system can simply edit the boot parameters (adding an "s" for single user (root), or "init=/bin/bash")) and boot straight into a root shell.

Wow. The response here has been absolutely overwhelming. Many more replies, dms, and boosts than I expected. This is inspiring and I feel a responsibility to turn this attention into something meaningful.

I will be launching a forum and irc channel to facilitate furthering these (many) ideas and conversations.

I've bookmarked every response to the parent post; if you'd like to be notified when the forum and irc go live just reply to this parent toot, or DM me.

My turn to give back now ❀️

I've spent the weekend away from my desk (probably a good thing), but I'm looking forward to getting back to a new week of :javascript: training.

Next Tuesday @ 18:00 UTC, join us for our first PrivChat, a live conversation series w/ experts in the tech and internet freedom fields.

This edition we'll discuss online privacy in the context of COVID-19 and activism. Plus live Q&A!

Hey fediverse!

I'm looking for some motivated computer programmers to learn and collaborate with.

I am the sole developer at my job, and the (mostly) sole developer for all of my side projects; and to be frank, I've been lonely.

My goals are to further study mathematics and computer programming fundamentals in order to become a true professional and not just some "guy who makes webapps". I want to contribute meaningfully to my field and the world.

Feel free to boost, dm, and share links.

The @EU_Commission is currently examining the @google @Fitbit merger. PI wants regulators to block a merger that will give Google too much info & power.

Would two buttons to jump back/forward by 10 seconds be a sufficient replacement for a tracker bar on Mastodon audio posts?


Now that I finally have my set up, I'm a big fan. One stays on my keys and is touched to my phone when I need some mobile codes ( required). The other will always stay on my desk. The setting to require touch to display codes is a nice feature.

Hello @codeberg, this is a special gratitude for your awesome service. I am a satisfied user.

Here's MoodleNet, the world's first federated social network for educators, a decentralised digital commons.

I've taken this as Product Manager from zero to one, and leave Moodle on Friday.

The team is calling this v1.0 beta and proud of what we've achieved. Unfortunately the management seem to think it's "alpha quality". You decide...

For those with communal recycling and refuse containers: did you ever notice how many empty boxes still have the full shipping labels on them?

A gentle reminder: remove any label that has your name, mailing address (sometimes, phone number) and barcodes from the boxes you dispose of.

Don't put your purchase history and personal information on display for dumpster-divers or anyone else in the middle of the garbage cycle.
