/ Pro-Tip of the Day: Privacy and security are less convenient. There is no way around this. It is often likely that the less convenient a measure is, the more secure it is.

This is not just digitally, but in the physical world as well.

+ Locking your door is less convenient than not locking it.
+ Closing your blinds is less convenient than not closing them.
+ Randomly generating passwords and storing them in a password manager is less convenient than using the same, memorable password for everyone.
+ Using a password manager is less convenient than not using one.

Come to terms with this and you will be much safer and much more private.

@sydneyfalk Hey i hope you don't mine me asking to follow. My name's Garrett, I'm in the USA, big into privacy stuff. We've vaguely interacted a couple times in the same threads through mutuals and I though maybe we would get along as well. No hard feelings if you're not interested...I take privacy very seriously and your privacy is as important to me as anyone elses.

Just spilled fresh coffee on my hand and floor because I was playing with one of the cats and ran into a door I thought was open further than it was.

hey young leftist friends. you're struggling to clearly and consisely define your ideology? let me tell you a secret. no one fucking cares. it's what you do, not what you declare that counts

Today I'm cleaning up/out lots of files between various hard drives and cloud storage spaces to get everything in one place, and also, so I can close down those cloud storage spaces I'm paying for.

Listening to Reanimation right now and it's just so good.

Linkin Park really did some ~ish that no one else was doing at the time.

"Mind sharing some anonymous data with us?"

No thanks.

We the American working population
Hate the fact that eight hours a day
Is wasted on chasing the dream of someone that isn't us
And we may not hate our jobs
But we hate jobs in general
That don't have to do with fighting our own causes
We the American working population
Hate the nine to five day-in day-out
But we'd rather be supporting ourselves
By being paid to perfect the pastimes
That we have harbored based solely on the fact
That it makes us smile if it sounds dope

Many websites already support TLS 1.3 (including our blog). TLS 1.3 is currently the most secure TLS version.

You can check all websites you frequently visit by (temporarily) switching to TLS 1.3 only:

– Chrome/Chromium: Set "--ssl-version-min=tls1.3" in chromium-flags.conf
– Firefox: Go to about:config in FF and switch "security.tls.version.min" to 4.

Feel free to reply to this post to list other websites with support for TLS 1.3. 🙂
