Not that I know too much about Cloudflare in general, not my job to configure it but I know we use it a lot because it is on most of our websites these days.
 
I'm not a fan of CDNs overall.
I mean I see why they can be necessary...
 
J--
@forest Yeah as with any big tech company, I guess.
Wait, how is LetsEncrypts organisation setup?
They're a company, right?
Not like a non-profit or something?
 
They're a non-profit.
Truly wonderful, imo.
 
J--
Oh.
 
They're supported heavily by Mozilla and the EFF.
 
J--
12:01 AM
I didn't know that. That is really nice, yeah.
 
And the Snowden revelations were actually a huge impetus for their creation.
 
J--
Yeah, that is super cool. I always assumed they were a company.
 
Not to mention StartCom (aka WoSign, the CA that has free certs) getting permab& by all the browsers lol. Since then only Comodo had free certs and they suck. So LE came around and actually gives free certs that are useful and easy to deploy with automation. They greatly increased TLS usage.
 
J--
lol. I've heard of them before.
I wasn't really in security before LetsEncrypt now I think about it, lmfao.
Yeah, April 2016.
Still worked in that shitty MSP then, lol.
LetsEncrypt were huge by the time I got into security.
 
@forest I fucking love let's encrypt
 
J--
12:05 AM
^ +1
 
Biggest thing that ever happened to the net
 
One of them, at least.
 
J--
Now we just need all the sites to band together to get 90% of the web using 2FA :D
^ we can dream... lol
That reminds me.
GitHub really annoyed me the other day.
You can use a YK or similar.
But youy still need a phone registered with an app
as well.
At least, I couldn't figure out a way of getting rid of the app in favour of JUST the physical key.
 
Same!
 
J--
Which pissed me off.
 
12:08 AM
Twitter too
 
J--
Yeah. What a stupid fucking system, right?
The whole point is that I don't WANT an app.
 
Can't have the key alone. You need google auth + key
Fuck knows why
 
J--
Yeah, fucking retarded. Very annoying.
Made me want to switch to GitLab for good. But perhaps they have the same thing, I am not sure.
 
Controversial opinion: 2FA is overrated (at least for the security-conscious folks).
 
J--
That is very controversial, I use it everywhere :D
 
12:10 AM
in The Side Channel, 5 mins ago, by b degnan
@forest For a single tunnel cycle, I can say that the recovery is 100%. It'd take 10s of seconds of tunneling to make it so I cannot see a difference. I can read down to 20fA, that's super small. We are dealing with so few electrons, there's a probability issue with the work function.
neato. I'm now very curious to see how SED is implemented!
 
J--
My entire computer is 2fa :D
 
@forest I just do 2FA so I feel like the money I paid for a YubiKey isn't wasted
Honestly, my twitter account has like a handful of followers who all just followed me because I occasionally retweet cosplay pictures
What value is that for an attacker?
 
J--
I use 2FA because I am... Paranoid.
The other day I heard a strange sound through my headphones so I destroyed them with a drill.
For some reason I convinced myself that NCA were listening or something...
The worst thing is I have totally irrational paranoia.
I am like 99% certain the NCA were not hacking my headphones. Didn't stop my brain telling me they were...
@forest this conversation in The Side Channel I was following for like... 3 messages? Maybe a couple more. And now I am totally baffled LUL
@MechMK1 I'm not much into cosplay, or anime, but if you have any Asuna cosplay i'll take it :D lmfao
SAO is the only anime I've watched. I am frequently told by anime advocates it is dogshit but I really liked it so /shrug
 
@J-- It's mostly touhou
 
J--
In-fact, I might rewatch it.
 
12:21 AM
@J-- Honestly SAO was fine. I wouldn't call it "dogshit", but it has its issues. Doesn't mean someone can't enjoy it
 
J--
I really enjoyed that series.
 
All my favourite games have their deep flaws
And I love them still
 
J--
Yeah, I mean, considering I never watched anime before that, it was just popular so.
Also, the fact it is based on gaming made me really interested to watch it in the first place.
I tried watching some others like Tokyo Ghoul because someone recommended that but I think it was just the entire plot of SAO that interested me so.
Didn't really get into anime at all, just liked SAO.
 
@J-- I'm honestly not that much into Anime either
Been ages since I last saw one
 
J--
Oh, my mistake.
I thought you were an avid fan :D
 
12:23 AM
Not at all :D
 
J--
Ah, I see.
Main takeaway: asuna hot :D
 
Okay, not true. I did see the fan-made touhou anime and almost had a throbbing erection when Sakuya first appeared
 
J--
Heh :D
 
Because Sakuya is the best character from touhou and if you say otherwise, I'll find you and I will
convince you otherwise
 
J--
She's cute. My girlfriend is really into anime.
So I think I get the Asuna hot pass because of that lol
 
12:24 AM
How could you not love her?!
 
J--
Yeah, I just googled her :D
 
Time-manipulating, knife-throwing maid=
 
J--
If they got long legs
its over for me :D
both in real life and cartoons lmfao
 
@J-- If I am not mistaken you like dark-skinned girls too, right?
 
J--
Yeah, mostly. I am not into white girls at all.
 
12:26 AM
I'm pretty sure you'd like Scheherazade from Fate too then
 
J--
I mean, my girlfriend is not dark-skinned. Not really.
She is quite white, she has that very Arabic look.
That's the kinda' girls I like.
This character is Persian? :D
Ah yes, I see.
 
Yes, she is from the book 1001 nights
 
J--
Yeah, my girlfriend is a bit more light skinned but this kinda' middle-eastern look is the one :D
I don't even know why. Never been into white girls.
Just don't often find them attractive.
 
During the recent valentine's event, every character had a unique cutscene
Hers was that she wanted to tell you a story to comfort you
But honestly, my heart belongs to Raikou
How could it not?
 
J--
Isn't that a Pokemon? :D
 
12:30 AM
That's what many people say
 
J--
Oh, heh.
 
Both Raikou from pokemon and Raikou from Fate were named after Minamoto-no-Raikou, a legendary japanese swordsman
 
J--
Ohhhhhhhhhhh.
Interesting.
 
The concept of the "Fate" series is that legendary figures from human history and mythology are summoned as warriors
 
J--
Wow that character has some...
Well, I think you know.
 
12:31 AM
Once you get to know her, it gets even weirder
But luckily for her, I'm into that shit
 
J--
That must hurt her back :'D
 
She's a strong woman
 
J--
Yeah must be.
I cannot imagine carrying those around lmfao :D
 
So as I was about to say, that includes some "obvious choices" like Heracles, Beowulf, Vlad the Impaler, etc...
But also some stranger choices like Nikola Tesla, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart or William Shakespeare
They also go into indian mythology, adding Rama from the Ramayana
Or celtic mythology, adding Scáthach
 
J--
See, I know nothing about this. I don't read much fiction or any, really.
 
12:34 AM
@J-- Well he's been explaining physics which is quite far from cryptography! I have trouble understanding it too, but I can google some of the terms to get a better understanding.
 
J--
My favourite books are: Animal Farm, 1984 and A Clockwork Orange.
@forest Yeah, that is where I started to get very confused :D
 
I understand some of the basics (electron tunneling, hot carrier injection, etc).
 
J--
I should note that A Clockwork Orange is quite dreadful but a cult classic at this point.
The film is tragically bad.
 
wtf, I loved the film
 
J--
I love the film too. Like, in my heart, I love it.
 
12:36 AM
>Clockwork Orange
>Bad

Pick one
 
I love me a little ultra-violence!
 
J--
But it is an awful movie..
The acting is horrendous.
 
lies
LIES
 
J--
Hahaha :D
 
To sum fate up: "So Nero Claudius, Elizabeth Báthory, Geronimo, Billy the Kid and Rama seek out the presi-king and CEO of the United Eastern States, Thomas Alva Edison and his friend Helena Blavatsky, to defend against the invading forces of the Celtil Kingdom of the Western United States, lead by Queen Medb and her lover and murderer, Cù Chulainn"
 
J--
12:37 AM
I do love that movie but I also love that I think it is trash in terms of quality.
 
Clockwork Orange is a masterpiece in every way.
Also feeling slight existential dread because >tfw no Raikou to bemother me
 
@J-- You like Big Bang Theory. You've lost your right to critique media.
 
J--
Has anyone ever seen Birdemic? :D
That is the WORST movie. I've ever seen.
@forest Yeah many people say that :D
You're right, you're right.
 
Also anyone here got experience cultivating psilocybe cubensis?
The worst movie is After Last Season
 
@J-- You've never seen Manos: Hands of Fate.
 
J--
12:38 AM
YEah but guys
look at these birds...
It is LAUGHABLE.
 
J--
oh god...
you might be right.
that might be worse...
 
I love After Last Season
Do you want to know why?
 
J--
Enlighten me...
3 seconds of this made my head hurt.
 
Because even if everything I did ended in failure, even if everything I did was awful in every possible way, it comforts me that it will all be lost to the sands of time one day, and nothing of me will remain. And of this nothingness, nothing will ever be worse than After Last Season.
In other words: No matter how badly I fuck up, it can't be so bad that something worse than this comes out.
 
J--
12:41 AM
HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA
I wish I could star that 12x
That is probably the best reasoning I've ever heard for loving something so bad.
 
It's 100% true
 
J--
@forest Going to search it now... :D
1966... Here we go.
 
If you haven't seen it, you have to watch it. It's considered to be the worst movie ever.
But it's a cult classic.
One of the actors is on LSD the entire time.
 
J--
No WAY I skipped in a bit
and im dead already, wait.
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE JOKING ME
hahahahahahahahahahahahah
 
:D
 
J--
12:44 AM
im crying
im gonna watch this entire film
i have to.
why does his costume have hands on it? HAHAHAHHAHA
You know, this reminds me of like... A... A video to join a cult.
Like in the starting week. They show you this section.
 
Too bad I can't join heaven's gate anymore
 
Fun fact about Manos: The guys who made it had a camera that could only hold 10 seconds of film at a time, so all scenes are limited to 10 seconds. It also had no audio capabilities, so they dubbed it over with like 3 voices afterwards. Also, the intro contains about 10 minutes of two people driving and later making out (and the girl keeps looking at the camera like "do you still want us kissing? It's been 45 seconds. How long is this supposed to last?")
 
J--
Oh.. Would you look at that.
It is about a cult...: " underground, devil-worshiping cult led by the fearsome Master"
 
How do you even find shit like that?
 
J--
^
 
12:47 AM
Like, a camera that only holds 10 seconds sounds like a meme challenge for film students
 
J--
You know what. This makes me want to watch The Addams Family film again, for some reason.
The one from 1991.
 
Manos was created as a bet between a salesman (or something) and his friend that anyone can create a horror movie without experience and sell it in theaters. He technically won the bet...
 
J--
WAIT.
I have heard an audio segment of this before, somewhere.
 
@J-- Would make a banger sample
 
J--
I am trying to find the section.
 
12:50 AM
[buildup] "I've never been to that town, but..." [break] "I've been though it" [brutal drop]
 
J--
" oh mike, i dont want to spend the night here i dont like the looks of the place"
where the HELL have i heard that.
I actually think you're right, Mech. I think someone has sampled this in a song I've heard, really
 
Wouldn't surprise me
 
J--
This is annoying me. As soon as I heard it, I knew I've heard it elsewhere but i can't figure out where.
Well, this is going to annoy me until I figure out where I heard it :D
In the mean time, can we all appreciate the costumes in this film.
 
Now I want to make some dubstep with samples from After Last Season
 
J--
First the cape with the hands, now we have this masterpiece...
Also, look at this guys face... He looks like a menace.
 
12:53 AM
"Indana Joe"
 
J--
HAHAHHA :D
@forest im in love.
im in love with everything about this movie.
The costumes... The acting. The lines. The attempt at spooky music. The sets.
Just all of it.
 
Or to put it like a chinese knock-off halloween costume: "Archeology Adventure Man Costume"
 
It's truly a masterpiece. You have to watch it all. It's worth it.
 
J--
Manos Returns 2018.
THERES A SEQUEL AND A PREQUEL
 
And you see the guy who can barely walk? The servant or something? He's actually on LSD and is wearing some kind of leg braces. He permanently damaged his legs during the movie.
 
12:55 AM
Also completely unrelated: I fucking love the balance in GFR
 
J--
@forest Oh thats why he is stumbling...
 
@J-- Well those either aren't official, or were made to milk its infamy.
 
Every skill of Qing Yan is made to synergize with the weapon Hell
Every single one
 
@J-- Yep. Acid + bad fitting bracers.
 
J--
@forest Ah damn. It has the original guy who played the master in them though ::(
But I guess not written by Harold P whatever his name is.
 
12:56 AM
Like, the designer sat down, took this shotgun, said "Which skills would work well with this?" and then dumped all of these skills into Qing Yan
For example: He deals more damage to enemies close to him. Synergizes with a shotgun.
 
J--
"oh manos, thou a primal darkness, thou who dwelleth in the depths of the universe of the black chasms of night" :D :D
 
He deals more damage if more than 4 projectiles in one shot hit an enemy. You know..like a shotgun
 
J--
did they just try and use as many words they could think of to explain spooky and dark :D
 
@J-- Remember, it was written by a salesman (or something), not a real director!
 
J--
Its genius! :D
I love the music as well. Like a flute or something...
 
12:58 AM
He gets a bonus after reloading. Which you do a lot with a shotgun who's unique mechanic is that you reload each shell seperately
 
J--
To try and be spooky lmfao
DAMN THIS GUYH THE ORIGINAL PIMP
HE GOT 6 WIVES
