they are saying that ‘more and more students believe fake news, like “my government isn’t telling me the whole truth”‘

is this a joke?

has anyone experimented with setting up a mesh network? especially anyone in the seattle area

it's really telling that the evilcorp with a site/service most commonly rendered (more) broken by my adblock & tracking protection is none other than Fucking Paypal

something is clogged in the cloud of tubes. I feel it on some sites but not others.

I work in IT which is the reason this house has:

- mechanical windows
- mechanical door locks
- no Alexa/HomeKit/Google
- no Internet connected thermostats, lamps, or whatnots
- a dumb TV
- wall switches for lights

I’m glad Eugen is going to make it to the Eunomia workshop tomorrow. Eunomia really relies on him to look legitimate... which is a real hurdle in a project like this.

Selon, quel évènement à le plus de chance de survenir en premier ?

i will soon be returning to my fedi sabbatical, but first, i would like to observe something related to security.

i think we need to talk about authorized fetch. it's really a quite rotten security feature that provides no actual security.

here is why.

authorized fetch depends on HTTP Signatures to function, which is fine and dandy, of course, nothing wrong with that.

but what if gab.com starts signing their requests as totally-not-gab.com?

this would be a fairly trivial modification to any fediverse software, really.

but, even better, you don't have to modify the software at all.

fediverse software supports proxies, which may be used to proxy object fetches. this is actually a good thing, as it allows the fediverse to continue working behind firewalls or across islands (such as TOR or I2P).

well, a proxy can silently rewrite the HTTP Signatures, meaning that gab.com can deploy a software which rewrites the HTTP Signature and thus evade the effects imposed by authorized fetches.

i look forward to somebody releasing such a proxy to demonstrate this point. maybe then we can talk about actual security, for once. haha who am I kidding?

Heya #css people!

is there a tree-shaking or dead-code elimination utility that won't require me to use #webpack?

(it's okay if it's written in #node, since i'm already using node #sass and #bulma)

I mean maybe it's just idealism talking, but,

If we just... stopped doing terrible things that make most of the planet's biological life go extinct,

yes some numbers would stop going up, but, maybe not doing terrible things that make most of the planet's biological life go extinct is better than some numbers going up.

I dunno though. Let's hear from the experts at the Economic Numbers Go Up Foundation, they are the experts on numbers going up so probably we should listen to them.

"Fortunately, Bob, the global destruction machine is only a bit wobbly. It hasn't completely stopped. The markets are betting that it'll get back very shortly into the grand plan of devouring all biological life and turning this planet into a ruined, drowned husk swept by toxic storms."

"And that's good news Jim!"

"Absolutely. We cannot afford for the global destruction machine to slow its accelerating rate of destruction for even a moment. Real people get hurt each time it slows down."
