The link to the SpaceX "evidence" is an alien conspiracy video.
A SATIRICAL conspiracy video... but yeah it seems awfully out of place.
Go through your text, and everywhere where it says "password" change it to say "passphrase."
The password-setting step, where you have the user initialize their password, should also say "don't re-use the same passphrase that you use somewhere else." Just say it. (If users want to ignore it, fine. You can't help people who don't want to be helped.)
This doesn't fix all the problems, but it fixes the most, in the smallest amount of time/effort. One of your interns can do all this in a single morning.
After that, make sure you're hashing, but use something already invented for this job rather than trying to figure it out yourself. (This might not be a job for an intern, though I bet it could, at some places.)
Congratulations, your site is now better than the other 99.9%. We'll revisit and update these decisions in a century or two, when you're considered to be better than only about 90%.
If you trust the alternative root, then it can't forge the entire tree, because it's not forging anything at all. It's protecting you from forgery. (And also, it won't be an alternative root, either; it'll just be the root.)
Let's all hope that this ends up not happening. It'd be an extremely minor improvement which only prevents any serious improvement from ever happening.
If the government is going to use force here, then it should be that any interstate commerce in TV must use standards. Why demand a free-as-in-beer app when you can just demand free-as-in-speech specs? That would get us all plenty of free-as-in-beer apps anyway, except that you get as many are needed, until everyone agrees it's competitive enough. Don't like Company X's TV player? Try Company Y's, or this one on githib, or write your own. A week after specs are published, you're going to have way better stuff available than any app Comcast is ever going to make for your Roku, which will be the next thing for you to be constantly bitching about (assuming you're still using the Roku when the app comes out).
If you're not going to force the use of standards, then don't bother using force at all. Why go to so much trouble just to do it wrong? You're setting us up so that when we tire of this next failure, the cable companies will be able to say "but we did what you want! It's not fair to make us change again!"
Protocols and interoperability are what have value. Stop stressing implementations so much. Doing things is fucking trivial, compared to figuring out what to do and being allowed to do it. Freedom gets you diversity, which gets you performance. Does anyone really still pretend to not know this?
What's UPS going to charge you for a letter? $10?
Let's suppose we lived in that world. It's 2036, and sending a letter costs $10. Are you better off than you were in 1996 (when it cost 32 cents), or worse off?
We might be better off. Sure, it costs thirty times as much, but you might be having to do it less than a thirtieth as often. I'll admit my memory is foggy, but I'm pretty sure that every damn month I was having to mail multiple bill payments. That crap is over, and we're all happier for it, aren't we? Nowdays, I'm snailmailing infrequently enough that I don't even know if it's something I do twice a year, or once every two years, or what. It's getting hard to measure, but one thing's for sure: it ain't much.
$10 for a letter would be ok, if you almost never had to use it. And aren't we heading that way? Isn't nearly every instance (I'm trying to be open to there being some exceptions, though I'm actually drawing a blank right now) where you can't use email, a situation where you view the requirement as being a consequence of someone else's fuckup, incompetence, anachronism, etc? (e.g. this AC's idea that "my financial records where I need physical copies for tax audit purposes" is a feature of snailmail, rather than a defect in government's information-provenance-verification procedures.)
I'm not even necessarily advocating the death of USPS. Maybe they'll "rightsize" to fit the country's communications needs, such that they are the ones charging $10 to deliver a letter. It wouldn't be so bad, if overall, we still end up spending less.
And here I was wondering if it's worth taking a look after the inevitable price-drop that will follow the bad PR. Thanks for saving me from that. Love Elite too much (though the original still is the only real one).
It may come as a surprise, but there are actually honest people out there who want to deliver what they promise. They are actually, believe it or not, the majority of businesspeople out there.
I know some pretty disillusioned contributors to Kickstarter projects that would say otherwise.
Whereas I, who (amusingly enough, perhaps) have been a copy editor, had no trouble at all reading your post. But I also have little trouble reading text in a mirror, or letters that are upside-down. That seems to hint that this may be a cognitive thing, and for some people significant whitespace works and for some people it just doesn't and it won't, and the endless arguing about it might be pointless.
Perl forever! You can write it, and afterward you won't even be able to edit it.
Well, for starters, LinkedIn only leaked data for around 6 million accounts. Yahoo leaked data for half a billion accounts. Also, considering that people use Yahoo for their personal email and to track their finances, the data on Yahoo was potentially much more sensitive than anything on LinkedIn.
Musk himself said he is focused on building the transportation infrastucture, not the colony itself. He is leaving that to others and basically inviting people with resources and ideas to join in.
Ah, I see. So we can think of it as kind of a Hyperloop to Mars.
An authority is a person who can tell you more about something than you really care to know.
