My LTE connection is barely alive. You know what? Fuck it! I'm gonna run my own LTE network! With blackjack and hookers!
tfw writing code in Haskell and the function's type is 4.5 times longer than its body. 89 vs 20 characters.
What's that thread everyone's talking about?
My girlfriend wants to move in with me.
WHAT DID I DO WRONG??!!!
After seeing five (FIVE!!!11) defective monitors in three different stores, I wrote a letter to Iiyama, asking them to unfuck their quality control process and sell me a monitor without dead pixels.
How surreal is this?
I was asked to explain Haskell to a young girl. And that's what I'm doing right now.
Fun fact btw. There are no security checks on domestic flights in Iceland.
I hope I'll be able to spare a week for a visit to Iceland this year.
I find it interesting how it is now ok to let total strangers into my home to clean up while I'm out having breakfast.
And that story further jogged my memory to recall the photo copier character substitution bug with presumably wide but unknown impact. Think silent data corruption but for paper:
I think I got my ass covered without major losses this time. But I still find it disturbing that everyone and their mother insists on the use of phones for authentication given how easy they are to hijack.
After visiting my bank and re-reading the contract (I had to do something while waiting), I found a curious clause there. Apparently, the bank cannot be held liable if my money gets stolen in an event of nuclear attack or nuclear poisoning of the territory.
This story continues. My carrier has an app for various things, and it allows for a phone number change. The only way that app does authentication is though the sim card. I don't know specifics, but apparently someone managed to either obtain my simcard info or circumvent the authentication entirely.
I have contacted the carrier's security team, they promised to look into this within a couple of days.
The lesson to you all is DO NOT RELY on shit for authentication like this. I'm glad I don't.
In case you've been wondering why relying on text messages to your phone for authentication sucks. I've just had my phone number stolen.
Cities without street lights at night look a lot better, you know?
