@JPEG why was Aurora pulled from the MAS?
How is https://github.com/8051Enthusiast/regex2fat not an April Fools joke? Truly we live in the most amazing era.
I upgraded something on one of my Debian VMs and now every time I start a session, PAM launches ssh-agent (even if, e.g., I already have a forwarded agent). This is super-annoying and smells like #systemd being obnoxious. Anyone recognize?

Wrote my first non-trivial #Rust application which uses Warp and the new post-stdlib-futures Hyper. Not too bad, although I really wish Warp would let me write output filters without that terrible make_service_fn hack.

No matter what I say they just come back that NIST SP800-63 says 8 characters is good enough so we shouldn't require more than 8 characters.
My damned growth team is trying to get us to reduce the password length requirement for user accounts; does anyone have a persuasive citation for why 8 characters is not enough any more? I've got a few infosec-focused ones (including from our security auditors), but they're not buying any of them so far.
