Mastodon :mastodon: security:

In August, Mastodon 2.4.4 was released which contains two fixes for security vulnerabilities.

Today, 39.5% of all Mastodon instances which show their version number are still running vulnerable Mastodon < 2.4.4.

We already checked this twice:

– 10/1/18: 42% vulnerable
– 8/23/18: 38.6% vulnerable

Either the remaining instances are all unmaintained or admins refuse to update.

...at least it's consistent. 2 out of 2! Again the display in the ICE gets stuck. 227km/h displayed while we are waiting in a station 🤦🏻‍♂️ social.bankmann.name/media/DYO

Google translate and lockers apparently became self aware and are now fighting money-making schemes at museums! 🤣 social.bankmann.name/media/7O7

And of course why should the order of the trains on the sign match the order or the trains on the tracks... 🤷‍♂️

Ahh, nothing like Deutsche Bahn...
One display shows nothing, the other the wrong train number and 156km/h while sitting in a train station. 👍 social.bankmann.name/media/o2C

So happy about this icon for @tootapp that I finally managed to put together.

My favorite IBM design though is their 1980s cloth-bound manuals, designed by Massimo Vignelli. These are a joy to use and to look at.

Amazing video about game design and development tricks in crazily limited amounts of RAM.

Holy crap. Malware hidden in a strand of DNA hijacks the computer that analyzes that particular gene sequence.

We're going to live in a very weird world man.

Our golden age ended on September 11th, 2001. The day we decided to make fear our ultimate ruler, when we succumbed to the false promises of safety in exchange for liberty, when we chose to rate our believes higher than our knowledge, when we started to reject the stranger instead of welcoming him and when we turned our eyes from the future towards the past.

My favorite DOS all-in-one is the stunning IBM PS/2 Model 25. #retrocomputing

Text files are the cockroaches of the modern information ecosystem.

They might not look pretty and they scare kids, but they are SUPER well adapted and functional and they'll survive almost anything short of total hard disk failure.

Really like the current beta of Toot! on iOS. Fast, beautiful interface. Looking forward to what's to come 👍

This is a private Mastodon instance. Federates with anyone but does not accept new users.
