IRC still rules. No ads in my irssi.

If you mean that in some channels only some people can actually "talk", I think it depends on the configuration of the channel, but it's a possibility.

I thought people used Discord because you could have video / audio chats (not sure about this, I've used it very sparsely.)

And then there are Open Source projects that use Discord as the documentation repository. Hell is a place on the Internet, apparently.

You're right, I completely misinterpreted the comment. The thing is that "voice" is a very specific term within IRC, and I got confused :D

The situation in Malaga is going to be a shitshow pretty soon. There's basically no water there anymore. This summer, hotels will be able to fill their swimming pools, but residential buildings will be banned from doing so. There are talks of bringing water in boats from Murcia. People that got rich planting avocados and mangos saw their crops fall 85 % last year. And of course there are already water consumption restrictions, with water flows restricted at night.

But at the same time there are talks of beating all previous tourism records. This is insanity.

Damn, I was used to work around shitty stuff on Teams. Are you telling me they're going to push another, different set of bugs on me now?

What has been your involvement with Reddit as a user so far? I'm trying to understand what users are getting those offers.

Rising water: Quebec lender ending new mortgages in flood zones ’just the beginning’ ( montrealgazette.com )

Desjardins Group announced as of Feb. 1 it would no longer offer new mortgages for properties in “0-20 year” flood zones — where there is a five per cent chance of flooding in any given year — because of what it called the rising effect of climate change....

I was listening to a podcast the other day (could have been "Rachman review", which is typically very good) and the interviewee said that yes, there might be interest in this, but companies want to see long-term orders before committing. There's currently no capacity, so they have to build it on their side, but they don't want to do it if they think the orders are going to dry in a few months / years.

Some people have already commented how to find it.

However, on a tangential note: last I heard, they stopped adding new papers due to a trial in India, but I never found out the outcome of that. Anyone has news about this, or did I dream it?

We can't have nice things.

The full text describes clusterfuck after clusterfuck. It's worth registering (it's free to read) even just for this one.

Also, some (most?) RSS readers don't need the path to the feed directly. You give them the regular URL and they'll figure it out. TinyTinyRSS does it.

You can generate a code grid and remove SMS altogether.

Wealthsimple and Questrade seem to support TOTP but I’m not sure if you can still bypass it with SMS. I don’t think so but I haven’t dug into it.

Questrade allows TOTP, SMS and some other methods, but you can select which ones you want to enable. I have only TOTP and it works as expected.

rinze OP ,
@rinze@infosec.pub avatar

That I don't know. I store the TOTP keys into an app on my phone an into a separated KeePass DB that's different from my regular one. Two copies of that is good enough to let me sleep at night.

Reddit: 'We Are in the Early Stages of Monetizing Our User Base' ( www.404media.co )

Reddit said in a filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission that its users’ posts are “a valuable source of conversation data and knowledge” that has been and will continue to be an important mechanism for training AI and large language models. The filing also states that the company believes “we are in the early...

I wish I had known about Power Delete Suite. I nuked my posts / comments by hand :-(

In case it's useful to more people: https://github.com/j0be/PowerDeleteSuite

I trust there won't be a hack and all that will get leaked.

Chat Control May Finally Be Dead: European Court Rules That Weakening Encryption Is Illegal ( tuta.com )

The Court takes note of the dangers of restricting encryption described by many experts in the field.” Any requirement to build in backdoors to encryption...

Yes, these things are never dead. They just come back under a different name / pretensions until they pass.

I created an account a few months ago but I've barely used it. DDG provides pretty much everything I search for. This might be because I don't typically do very "esoteric" searches, but for now I don't see the need for a paid service. Most of the times, tweaking the query so that it looks for a specific source is good enough.

I'd love if DDG had a system to remove entire domains entirely from the results, though.

I created my account in Spain around 2009, moved to Canada in 2014 and came back to Spain late last year. Never had a problem with this :-?

Came here to post a similar comment zedeus made in another thread:

Nitter is dead.

I still checked some Twitter accounts from people that were interesting to me and didn't migrate to Mastodon. One less thing to worry about, I guess.

rinze OP ,
@rinze@infosec.pub avatar

Yes, I'm aware those filters exist, but I'm asking about the practical implications of the set up I mentioned in the post.

Nice! Reading you from infosec.pub. Just checking if this works.

Damn. I knew this was a huge problem in Europe, but I didn’t know this happened in Canada too.

Here’s the Wikipedia article on this type of fraud: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_trader_fraud
