My kid doesn’t think that The Giving Tree is sad so I guess she’s on the sociopath scale 🤷‍♂️

@brightneedle @djsundog weeeelll, stargaze sg1 definitely blew up a lot of aliens, but they did also have important alliances and cooperation. So, glass half full?

Hey sci-fi fans of mastodon! What are tv shows or well-known series where human/alien diplomacy and living together are a major theme?

Thinking along the lines of Babylon 5, DS9, Mass Effect...

Obviously there’s human/alien stuff like Alien(s), but I’m interested in longer-term coexistence. #SciFi #SpaceOpera #Syfy 😜

~=8 Character Passwords Are Dead=~

New benchmark from the Hashcat Team shows a 2080Ti GPU passing 100 Billion password guesses per second (NTLM hash).

This means that the entire keyspace, or every possible combination of:
- Upper
- Lower
- Number
- Symbol

...of an 8 character password can be guessed in:

~2.5 hours

(8x 2080Ti GPUs against NTLM Windows hash)

GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program and GNU stands for GNU’s Not UNIX and UNIX stands for Uniplexed Information and Computing Service so the full proper name for GIMP is actually:

One of the best things I did recently was shove a loaf of bread in my bag. Now when I walk just right, or open it up I get a whiff of fresh wheat. It’s the best my bag has ever smelt.

Did you know Netflix has a Middle Ages Korean Zombie Palace Intrigue show? I mean I knew it but it took an episode before I REALLY knew it. They do.

I've been thinking a lot lately about how cyerbpunk action/sci fi visions of the future from the 80s and early 90s seemed a little silly to us in the 90s when we thought we were going to get this sleek black and steel future that looked like an Infiniti car ad, but then we got nostalgic for that earlier, slightly cheesy-seeming cyberpunk aesthetic. Now it's poised to be the unironically cool aesthetic of the early 2020s.

Climax Jerky is a terrible name for a dried meat company.

WP: someone spends too much time watching letterkenney in the days before a big meeting and lets slip an awful turn of phrase at the worst time.

Pitter patter.

@lawremipsum eee, I just let it ride. I figure they have some hardware redundancy and it’s all ephemeral anyway. I suppose it depends on what you’re protecting against though.

@lawremipsum I’m glad you shared! Sorry you had to fight it, I went through the same thing and did not post anything. github.com/jamesprior/mastodon is what I’m using although the values are kinda obscured.
