@samgai @rysiek you missed a common one:
"here at <company> we value your genitalia"


@rune @rysiek

"We care about your genitals"
"Your genitals are important for us"
"Review your genitals settings"
"By submitting this form, you agree to our genitals policy"

If this sounds weird and creepy, why would you talk about our privacy that way?

@rysiek @samgai well just to be safe I here by officially grant an unlimited WTFPL license to the entire fediverse for my posts in this thread ©️

A friend from the Warsaw Hackerspace made a thing:

This webpage will exploit your LG webOS smart TV, gain local root privileges, and install the webOS Homebrew Channel.

I almost wish I had an LG "smart" TV!

@rysiek unlike with my private parts anyone is free to do anything they like with my words.

@rysiek 2022 is lining up to be a good year w.r.t. gdpr rulings, but it's weird it took so many years to get confirmation that it's wrong to let Google measure my private parts

@rysiek indeed. It almost flows naturally with this analogy.

Maybe the EU should replace the gdpr with shorter more concise "penis and vagina" legislation that we can all understand.

@rysiek much like private parts they shouldn't:
- talk about it
- have access to it
- use it without my knowledge or consent

When I see "we care about your privacy" I get a weird creepy vibe from it.

Like, why? Why the hell do you care about my privacy? What business of yours is my privacy?

Why don't you go ahead and care about something else? My privacy was just fine before you started "caring" for it.

I've been evaluating IPFS as a potential 'value added' hosting business, over at Digital Ocean. I ran it a few weeks on my residential network before DO.

What I find is, it is rough, it is slower than DNS to propagate changes, and anything but performant unless you have high demand content that will be 'communally shouldered' by it's consumers.

It's a pretty narrow application space, and a hard sell for me. I think I'm gonna pass.

Ja znam, ale to niczego nie zmienia. W crypto pieniądze biorą się tylko i wyłącznie od innych ludzi. Oznacza to, że w przypadku paniki to wszystko runie. A ja nie dostrzegam żadnego powodu, by miało się to dalej rozwijać. Żre to energii niemożebnie, więc kolejne kraje zakazują wydobycia, a i urobek jest coraz trudniejszy. Otworzyłbym popcorn, ale nie lubię.

@feld @mplammers @feonixrift @thegibson @rysiek These are social problems that, ultimately, require social solutions, such as funding the government agencies that are *supposed* to be auditing the banks and stock exchanges, to a level where they can actually do their jobs.

Attempts to solve social problems with code *don’t work* and usually make the situation worse.

@rysiek the ios note at the bottom is funny

why is there HTTP 3? who needs it whats the point :VEIHYPER:

Please, when you're arguing loudly on your mobile, put it on speaker phone so we can hear both sides and decide which side we're on.

"World-class security is very inexpensive when you outsource 90% of it to strangers you've never met and don't pay." You'd fire your facilities manager instantly for saying that. And when your CISO says it you don't even notice.

Struggling for the best education hope to be employed someday an make things right to there place.
I am having some difficulties in life which are really hard sometime hard to take care of them. But what can I do I doesn’t choose the life I’m living in but who’s knows the future might looks great. We have been in to many things in life but thank God we are still alive an doing well even though my parents has a kind of bad sickness which is always need to be treated.

The most sad part of it is that my first thing to do in life is our house an take care of the family.
