OK. This is quite technical. But TL;DR - the neural hash system #Apple uses for their CSAM detection has been confronted with its first possible collision by some good hackers. This dog might be marked by the system as suspicious. Ouch. Issue 1 at github.com/AsuharietYgvar/Appl

The apartment I'm renting is eating 50+kW/h of power per DAY 😧 This is with a heat pump.
People who live in cold climates, is this normal? I've just moved countries and don't have a frame of reference for this.

Apparently #Wire wants to #free its product from #Google to bring it to #FDroid and they're "looking for a contractor who can handle an older scala codebase, and has experience around app notification processes".

“…this new single-minded focus on CSAM in the revived anti-encryption push feels like an exceedingly cynical move on the part of the U.S. government … One proposal … is to build a system where the provider … would check content … before it’s encrypted and transmitted … i.e. while the content is on the sender’s device … to try to figure out whether that content is or might be abusive content such as CSAM.” – Riana Pfefferkorn, Oct 7,

We need some help with #PHP #packagist and #composer.

Could someone help review a pull request that updates `composer.json` for packagist.org?

Für eine vom #BSI betreute Bachelorarbeit wurde untersucht, ob sich die Technische Richtlinie BSI TR-03148 („Router-TR“) eignet, um einen gängigen Router mit installierter #OpenSource Firmware OpenWrt zu prüfen.
Darüber hinaus wurde für diese Abschlussarbeit analysiert, welche Testfälle der „Router-TR“ OpenWrt bislang nicht erfüllt und welche Vorteile OpenWrt gegenüber proprietären Router-Firmwares aufweist.

What Apple is doing with its plans to scan content on your own devices (and, to a lesser degree, what it was doing earlier with its News app profiling you on your own device) is an attempt to redefine what it means to violate your privacy.

It doesn’t matter where your privacy gets violated (on your own device or in the cloud). It matters that your privacy is being violated. The violation of privacy isn’t the scanning of the content, it is the notification of a third-party based on the scan.

Oops I did it again…

A little warning banner showing up, reminding you what Apple decided they should do. I guess that will stick around a bit longer than the hype around the problem.

Mark my words: Apple’s plans to have teenagers’ phones snitch to their parents will result in honour killings in places like Turkey. Women and queer people will get murdered because of this. I truly hope Apple reconsiders starting down this dangerous path.

So Apple decided that they'll take every one of your pictures and try to asses them to check if they contain nude children.

Imagine some random guy knocking on your door, stating they are from the photo album manufacturer and they would now need to check if any of your photo albums contain pictures of naked children. And if he considers anything suspicious he might need to report it to the police.

I'm sure you would enjoy such a visit every week, I mean, it's to protect children, right? Right?

Love this little trick from @victoria to get self documenting makefiles.

As a bonus I took a look at why we use .PHONY in makefiles: to ensure commands run even in the presence of a file of the same name as the command.
