Several Sacramento legislators indicate they plan to vote no on SB 4/AB 14, bills to solidify CA's new universal fiber program, due to cable industry opposition.

I'd like to apologize to you, Eris, and to the other users on this instance who have been angry and dismayed by our response, or felt that Kolektiva did not care about their safety as it relates to our users.

apparently gravatar (universal profile pic service) uses md5(email address) to locate your URL. unsalted too! generating a colission, ie registering a gravatar account that lets you overwrite someone else's avatar would be cool. sadly i don't know of a second preimage on MD5 other than brute force 🤔 so picking someone specific as a target would be hard.
also iirc there was like uhhhh some kinda known-prefix attack? but specifically in the case of email, known-suffix would be a lot better.
i think the more useful attack here is a brute force to reverse someone's email address from their profile pic URL tbh
practice self care by doing a breathing exercise at lunch. take a walk away from your desk for 15 minutes to recenter. be unavailable for calls and texts between the hours of 1am and noon. quit your job and never return. leave a series and cryptic messages and clues in your bedroom. move into the nocturnal animal enclosure at the zoo. they will never find you.
@devinprater i think the game you're referring to isn't called “The Veil” but “The Vale: Shadow of the Crown”?
