Looks like #NVIDIA's been naughty.

Welp, that idea went bust when I did full validation. There would be an opportunity for a clever adversary to forge signatures. It was somebody else’s obscure cryptography. But, about 4 hours after I realized the flaw, my brain bubbled up the correct answer, and it’s novel. Anyone else starting to see finate fields as topography?

Hey and friends. Don’t let your guard down, with regard to social distancing and masking. It’s not even COVID that is surging around me, it’s influenza! I got it from my kindergartener, because they are filthy vectors for all sorts of illness. I feel like shit. Don’t be like me, stay safe from COVID-19 and influenza, wear a mask.

I don’t even play normal wordle, It was too easy. My first word is always whatever my last incorrect guess was. Make it kind of determinisitic. I got lucky here, but sometimes I’d rather be lucky than good.

Huzzah! I can use my pq signature algorithm to sign ephemeral SIDH keys. Literally nobody understands wtf I’m talking about, but, great success! Everything seems to be running correctly, finally.

SCOTUS USPOL OMGWTFBBQ 

I know a lot of people are looking at this draft opinion from the supreme court and taking it at face value, which is appropriate. But past that, my question is who leaked it, and why? What was the politicial calculus? I honestly cannot decide if this is a Republican Hail Mary to re-engage their base ahead of the mid-terms, or if this was a Democrat cry for help, it certainly wasn't both. Any thoughts

@jerry @TunnelJanitor I highly recommend Backblaze for object storage, you can stuck Nginx in front as a proxy (or Cloudflare) and the prices are dirt cheap despite really good speeds and solid reliability.

$5/TB and free outbound data if you're using a bandwidth alliance partner (DigitalOcean, Cloudflare, etc.)

I don’t always fl3x this hard, but let it b known, my |<-R4d l337 street credz so legit, it could be leveraged to buy Twitter! What’s left to do?

It’s Friday! You know what that means, right? That means, we drink all the booze, all the things, vape all the concentrates, eat all the Mexican truck burritos, and merge all the commmits.

Is there a cryptographer instance, or do I need to make one? Cryptocurrency people who don’t understand cryptography are not invited.

Gitlab project export import timewarp, with a weird number of commits added to the wrong day? Whatever, soon, the colored boxes will grow, and eventually surpass the empty boxes. This is the way.

Sure would suck if you spent $44,000,000,000 on a website thinking that people would keep looking at that website and then people stopped looking at that website and went and looked at a different website instead

Anyone else get this email?
