@lain well well look what made it past the DMZ
In 10 years @sir will accidentally eat a terabyte of storage when he inadvertently seasons his dinner with picoSD flash flakes instead of coarse ground pepper
@taweret That's a fantastic tribute to the late Don "Mr. Limpett" Knotts on the eve of what would have been his 95th birthday
The current reigning "WTF champion" of password policy in my experience is the VPN access for the SCADA system of a client that shall be shamed but not named.
The password must be 10 characters.
Ten shall be he number of characters. Not 11, not 9. Twelve is Right Out.
The password must contain 1 or more uppercase letters, lowercase letters and (number or symbol).
Oh except spaces. Or slashes if I recall.
Thanks for sharing the wonderful #dprk pictures. Pyongyang looks pretty surreal to me, urban yet pastoral, like it was built for five times the population or something.
Also it is like the Kim Dynasty violated a Doctor-Who-like temporal nexus when they took power and the timeline collapsed, with bits of today leaking into 50 years ago.
Vice Media hot take Show more
In light of the recent issues #NaiomiWu has had with Chinese government oppressors...
Just a reminder that Vice Media are unprofessional hacks and you shouldn't promote any of their articles.
Same goes for Vice alumnus Sarah Jeong, whose dismissal of @SexyCyborg 's concerns about sexism, racism and homophobia in China was appalling considering Jeong has had to live with the same kind of discrimination herself.

@dtluna Wish is the e-commerce equivalent of Gab
@acesabe Nylon/polyester/etc are not exactly 3d printed. It is more like they are extruded into really thin filaments which are woven into fabric on a different machine.
But you probably could "weave" it with #3DPrinting by printing alternating patterns of single strand lines and allowing the layers to cool enough in between so they don't adhere into a solid piece
Weight Loss Show more
That's awesome @sean !
I've managed to maintain a weight about 25lb below my peak (from 210 to 185, most of that after my cardiac event 5 years ago)...relatively modest change but still very noticeable.
While I appreciate the improvement in my appearance what I REALLY notice is when I'm carrying a backpack or something around that weighs about 25lb for a couple of hours. Even now I sometimes think "wow I used to carry this around every waking hour how did I cope?"
@dansup seems appropriate considering how much childish behaviour goes on there, and that such behaviour gets rewarded with higher engagement and exposure.
