@ScottPack Speak for yourself. I'm proud of our laziness and apathy.
 
@Xander 25% voter turnout FTW
 
@ScottPack The lower the better!

4:33 AM
I don't understand that comic at all.
The first two panels are fine, but the third totally confuses me.
 
@RoryAlsop @RoryM NO!
 
4:54 AM
@LucasKauffman Is that the result or your reaction?
 
@TerryChia the vote
 
@LucasKauffman Ah. @Adnan must be disappointed.
At least our whisky supplies are secure.
 
my strongly pro independance internet friend will probably be complaining about this for weeks ;p
 
5:48 AM
Yaaay! I won 50 euros!
@RoryA Congrats
 
6:05 AM
So does that mean the people who have been been campaigning to "free scotland" for several hundred years can pack it in and go home? It's not the oppressive english anymore; now not even scotland really wants independence.
 
@tylerl Well, a bit less than half of the country wanted independence.
I don't think it's fair to say "not even Scotland wants independence"
 
@Adnan overruled by their own majority
 
Yes, the 'No' vote has won
and that's it. That's all this means
 
@Adnan When you gonna change your profile picture? :P
 
Hopefully, the nice people at Westminster will honour their word on giving Scotland new wider powers.
 
6:08 AM
@Adnan nope. not going to happen. the vote is done, no need to give anything anymore.
 
@TerryChia I'll be taking a pic in my kilt today. I'll use that one instead
 
@Adnan please do
 
@tylerl They promised the powers if Scotland votes 'No'
 
@Adnan but now that the vote is over, what's the incentive to keep their promise?
England/Scotland have a long, long history of that sort of relationship.
 
@tylerl I don't know. We'll see in the following months/years
 
6:21 AM
@tylerl It's more now about doing reforms than anything else
@tylerl Where's our Apps and Google glasses btw? /cc @TerryChia
 
@tylerl It's not there. I live in Europe.
@tylerl anyway I'll stop annoying you with the question :P
 
@LucasKauffman Yeah, the EC won't allow anything interesting into the EU because they're afraid that someone might take pictures.
and that's "creepy"
 
6:38 AM
@LucasKauffman Nice @tylerl can buy a few of them and then post them to us
 
maybe he gets a google discount?
 
He probably does!
 
7:04 AM
@Xander not sure if you're being sarcastic, but yes - at such low turnout rates it should be a considered a vote of no confidence in the system.
i.e. scrap the whole thing and start over.
@Adnan I take it as "most people cant be bothered with all the work involved in creating a new government, which frankly shouldnt be all that important anyway"
sorry! that should be "can't be arsed"

ahw, a pat on the back and a comforting pint to all the scots here that didn't get their way
 
@Thomas Gibson probably understands less than 10% of what he says. Seriously, try reading any of the articles he's written - and then try to understand it. I promise you, it's not your shortcomings that would prevent that, its that it simply has little to do with reality.
 
@AviD He knows just enough to convince people not actually in the field that he's an expert. That's what makes him dangerous.
 
@TerryChia that doesnt take much... toss around a few buzzwords, make up some new techy-sounding terms, and just keep talking. It gets picked up.
hmm, ythink maybe he was one of CSI writers?
 
@AviD Dunno, I never actually watched that show.
 
7:14 AM
yeah but cmon, there are a few wellknown classics.
should I go on?
 
@AviD If it entertains you.
 
hehe. it does.
> ENHANCE!!
 
NCIS <3
i alays watch that with my mom, on the couch, glass of tea, some crackers and cheese
 
ah oops, thats NCIS not CSI? Who knew?
 
@AviD @Lighty apparently.
@Lighty That yo momma joke does not compute.
 
7:22 AM
@TerryChia neither does your mom.
 
7:43 AM
@TildalWave I never subscribed to a list. I use my own lists as alternative news streams since I try to keep my main stream low volume and high signal.
 
so, by putting me into this list, you're basically saying my signal is too weak? I should be insulted.
 
@AviD get a longer atnenna then
 
theres pills for that.
 
atleast they say so
stoopid keyboard
 
PEBKAC
 
7:47 AM
gasundheid
 
@AviD He may not get that.
 
Huh. Um, guys? I'm thinking he really doesnt know what that means.
Soap and pillow cases, boys. Get them ready.
 
nononono
i get that
pelase dont rape my ears
 
what? no.
 
isnt that something like, user is to blame? :x
 
7:49 AM
 
has anyone here tried this tails thing?
 
@Lighty wants some tail.
 
@AviD i prefer Tigger tails ;3
 
The only thing that sucks for me about the whole referendum thing is that I won't be able to go to Scotland without visa.
 
@ScottPack embarrassing to every other vote in the UK ever :-)
So - how be ye lily-livered scurvy security knaves this fine morn?
(why are they always lily-livered? Why not poppy-pancreased)
 
8:08 AM
@RoryAlsop Just finished making meself some tea in the scholary
(or however that's written)
 
oo, Is today that fine day on whence we all doth theatricalize and play as 17th century independent sick sailors?
 
@AviD I have a list called "Talk too much". Didn't put you on that one ;)
 
@AviD 17th century independent Cornish/Devon sailors
 
@CodesInChaos heh, thanks, I guess
@RoryAlsop yes yes, thats what I said.
 
@CodesInChaos hahahaha - oh, now I wonder which one I'm on... When following folks on twitter I first look at their posts-per-day average. If it's over 3 I generally don't follow
@Adnan scullery :-)
 
8:19 AM
@CodesInChaos yeah btw, when you put someone in a list, they get a notification....
 
Hi!
I have a short question: how to get the ip where domain/subdomain points to?
 
@AviD I don't think they do if it's a private list.
 
@CodesInChaos was sec.se a private list?
 
ah
 
8:22 AM
@IonicăBizău simply ping it
 
@CodesInChaos True, but when server is down it shows: ping: unknown host
 
I don't think so. It shows that if you're not connected to the internet and DNS doesn't work.
 
@RoryAlsop @scottpack yeah that's easily double what a lot of elections get turnout-wise due to our stupid first past the post system
 
@IonicăBizău That message looks like you're not connected to the Internet
@IonicăBizău Personally, I prefer nslookup example.com
 
@Adnan you windows person you
 
8:33 AM
Hmm.. I had the following scenario: a NodeJS server was not running and this error was appearing. When I started the server script, then ip appeared in ping output. (@CodesInChaos, @Adnan)
 
@RоryMcCune nslookup is on *nix as well.
 
@TerryChia indeed it does but it's generally deprecated in favour of dig I'd say, so likely outcome is that @Adnan is a MS lover
 
@RоryMcCune True. I personally prefer dnsenum.pl because when you have a hammer, just smash everything with it. :P
 
I didn't know nslookup. It's great. Thanks! Works on Linux too. I'm on Ubuntu 14.04
dig is also good
 
@RоryMcCune When I want to get more info, I use dig
but when I just want the IP, I always go for nslookup

Q: HMAC- SHA 256- algorithm?

raviCan any one provide me a complete algorithm, how to do hash computation with a complete example.

> Could somebody also give me a lite kiss on my ass check?
> The left one, please.
 
8:41 AM
@Adnan Go find @Kisu you perv.
 
@Adnan see for me that's slower... dig <host> <cr>works but with nslookup it's.. nslookup <cr> host <cr>
 
@Adnan Did you get my tls tool working?
 
i recieved a exercise from my teacher, and he wants me to write a report ona few languages (script, programming, libraries and framworks), and he told me i should ask you guys something too
did anyone here ever use AngularJS, if yes, for what?
i need to describe what it is and where you should use it for, but i never heard of it untill today
 
@TerryChia heehee, thanks, I was hoping
 
8:48 AM
i know how to google, but my teacher was clear i should ask others ttoo, as in, more sources of opinions/experiences with it to orientate wider
 
@TerryChia It worked, but I didn't bother with modifying it to accept client certs
So I opted for SSLScan
 
@Adnan Aye. What was the use case for that? I am setting aside time this weekend to clean up the code so I may as well add more features to it while I'm at it.
 
@TerryChia The target server requires client-cert. It didn't spit out any info without providing the cert
 
@Adnan Ahh, right. That shouldn't be difficult. :)
 
Honestly, I always assumed that the server would tell you the cipher suites it likes way before it asks for the cert
No?
 
8:52 AM
@Adnan Hmm. Yeah that sounds weird actually.
I'll read the RFC later.
 
Or you can ping @Thomas
 
@Adnan Ah, looks like client cert is a TLS extension.
It's RFC 5878 if you wanna read up on it.
 
 
1 hour later…
9:58 AM
Awwwh.. the HarlemXSS was fixed :(
 
10:58 AM
@TerryChia Client certificate is not an extension (though there can be extensions that talk about certificates)
@Adnan The server does not tell the cipher suites it likes, only the one cipher suite that will be used.
Client sends a list of supported cipher suites (with order of preference); then server responds with the cipher suite that will be used.
If the server wants a certificate from the client, it asks for it afterwards.
If you want to obtain the list of cipher suites supported by the server, you have to connect several times, first with a huge list, then removing suites one by one until the server gives up.
That's what I do with TestSSLServer.
@TerryChia RFC 5878 is about authorization, which can be incarnated by a special case of certificate called an "attribute certificate" (I never saw one of these in the wild).
An attribute certificate does not contain a public key, and is called "certificate" only on a technicality.
 
@ThomasPornin why dont you do it the other way? I.e. send only one at a time, and it will either connect with that one or not.
 
11:32 AM
So - looking at the referendum results, it looks like Glasgow and Dundee should go independent :-)
 
Highland too. Just cuz.
curious, if it had been closer - would the criterion for winning be "50+% of total population" or "at least half of the councils voted 50+%" ?
 
@AviD it was population based IIRC
@RoryAlsop I was surprised at the result in Argyll and the Highlands, would have them pinned down as pro-independence.
 
@RоryMcCune so why do all the voting results show it per council?
or is that just for interesting statistics
 
@AviD just how they grouped it for reporting purposes
 
ah
 
11:46 AM
@RоryMcCune anything north of inverness hates the SNP (pretty much) as they have been shafted for years
 
@RoryAlsop I thought Inverness enjoy getting shafted? ;-)
 
@RoryAlsop well Orkney/Shetland I can see obv, just I thought the highland clans might have been more for it...
 
I didn't realise Dundee was such a pro-independence area
I expected Glasgow - just because
 
Of the many comments I've seen this morning, thought this might be the funniest
 
yeah but even those places were not so far from a nearly even split
