Firefox 72 is out today with great updates:
1⃣ Blocks fingerprinting tracking by default
2⃣ Hides annoying notification requests by default
3⃣ Introduces picture-in-picture video
If you haven't switched yet, here's what you're missing out on https://markosaric.com/firefox/
PSA: SHA-1 was broken before, but now it's VERY broken. Don't use it for security.
"By renting a GPU cluster online, the entire chosen-prefix collision attack on SHA-1 costed us about 75k USD. However, at the time of computation, our implementation was not optimal and we lost some time (because research)."
I'm getting back into writing some more Rust code after a few months of not really touching that particular codebase. I've been working mostly in Java and Kotlin in the interim, and a little bit of Python too. But rustc is really a different beast! It makes you think really differently about how to express your program to the computer. It's a kind of refreshing change actually.
As a programmer it's been really hard to wean myself off of thinking in terms of global solutions. This, in comparison to building local or community technology.
Thinking this way can make things harder (now your tech needs need to scale to the world) and not useful (different people in different places have different needs).
This kind of blew my mind: like, you can just go and build a piece of tech and only give it to your friends & the immediate people it's helpful for. You don't *need* to design for The World. I think this kind of thinking is really important for breaking away from capitalistic modes of thinking.
"What will Rust development look like in 2020? That's partially up to you!"
#Rust folks are calling for blog posts
"We are accepting ideas about almost anything having to do with Rust: language features, tooling needs, community programs, ecosystem needs... if it's related to Rust, we want to hear about it."
The thing people miss about #desktop #Linux is: it's not that Linux users are using Linux purely for ideology, in most cases. If I could get everything done on Windows in a similar amount of time with a similar level of satisfaction, I probably would.
But I can't. I can't use a tiling WM. I can't use BTRFS or ZFS for my external storage cluster. I can't have a decent package manager or functioning containerization or a command-line driven workflow.
Once more calling out for help:
A bigger #Mastodon instance wants to move out of Crimefl… ahem, Cloudflare, and is looking for an affordable CDN it can move to. We're talking about half a terabyte of data – and it needs, well, a CDN and HTTPS support at an affordable price (so Amazon is out, if it ever was in); and it should be privacy-friendly and ideally FOSS friendly (the latter two are my additions, but feel right).
Any recommendations? Asking for a friend :wink:
Pls boost if you don't know yourself.
