The wonders of corporate messaging

Giffgaff: "we're making some exciting changes...", and a page later "prices are doubling"

A talk on surveilance and censorship listing who sees your traffic:

IT, the usual suspects (picture: FB / Google / etc logos), your ISP, state agencies (picture: Eye of Sauron)


Reading "The Art of Electronics", turns out it's surprisingly fun -- from a table, describing the properties of electrolytic capacitors:

Accuracy: poor
Temperature stability: ghastly
Leakage: awful

Note to self: next time, when ordering electronics, check the package type.

Guess I'll have to learn surface-mount soldering.

Advent CTF done... time for writeups.

Yesterday's challenge for the OverTheWire Advent CTF: take a break from cyber things and go bake cookies

Coming soon(-ish): πŸͺ​


I do strange things with computers and computer-adjacent objects. Currently a PhD student, working on I'm-not-sure-exactly-what-yet, but generally in the direction of security and signal processing. Expect "dumb signal-related problem of the day" every now and then, sometimes with extra radio-related weirdness: as far as I'm concerned, radio technology is black magic.

CTF and general "breaking of things" enthusiast.

Fan of all forms of sci-fi (especially the written ones), board- and card games (bridge!).

I have been lurking around the fediverse for some time in the forms of @dd_ (now moved here) and @dd0 (food-related posts every now and then).

Greetings :hackers_town:​!

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
