@n82ps Was interested in the title but the trailer was turned me off. The reviews make it sound like there might be a story in there.

Retweeted by Dan O'Donnell@bynkii Marlinspike says it's time for a replacement. And I agree. (That paradigm is 20+ calendar years old.)@cqchoi So, I apologize for offending you. I just thought it is a fun and funny scene.@cqchoi And it appears I didn't learn the lesson well enough, as I just threw down on a guy with 1000s of followers whose writing I admire.@cqchoi But one lesson from my sensei that the duel scene illustrates - be careful who I throw down on...regardless of how big my weapon is.@cqchoi And studying it is not useless. It's a good skill to have. (And a good distraction for the mind from intellectual pursuits.)@cqchoi …that you are doing it. My fellow student is an accomplished sensei in his own dojo. I suppose I should have included a smiley :-)@cqchoi Actually my intention was not at all to mock or make fun of you or your hobby. My sensei was very skilled with a blade. And I admireIt all depends on context I guess…If the goal is honor in a swordfight, yes. If the goal is to find a lost GF in a crowded souk? Not so much. If the goal is to stay alive? NoYou have no grounds to whine about gummint snoopery if you can’t be bothered to take Step #1 in maintaining your own privacy. 6/n </rant>.@cqchoi https://t.co/f1jwqMKrFm“Please resend unencrypted as I do not have a gpg key.” WTF dude!? You had one a few years ago and demanded that people use it. 5/nA few weeks ago sent a gpg-mail to a guy who sells himself as an info sec expert. Used his public key. He replied… 4/nWent to the key server to get a public key for a private spook. Alas…sigh, no public key. You’d think that PhD spooks would get it. 3/nEven people who can create a key pair and post to the key server do not seem to understand the diff between public and private keys. 2/nSo I look up a surname on the PGP key server and get three returns. One is “First Last, (private key)”. This is why PGP/GPG is hard. 1/n

@ctdawe Given the to-the-right-of-cheney leadership both groups have had lately, it's good that some will pick and choose their beliefs.What if NASA sent #MESSENGER the command to dive into #planet Mercury and the satellite replied "aw fuck it, I'm outta here"?

@shanselman If the population is down to ~50k from a peak of ~100k, that would indicate the demise is well on its way. #HowCultsEndIs there a webmail service that doesn't mind access via Tor & that doesn't require e.g., phone verification? Actually asking for a friend.

Utterly unpredictable.. @RAKraemer @AnnaLeidreiter @JeremyRifkin @SuzanneWaldman 15 years ago we talked about peak oil. Now we’re awash in new oil.. @RAKraemer @AnnaLeidreiter @JeremyRifkin @SuzanneWaldman The further in the future they go, the more (exponentially) inaccurate. 2/n.@RAKraemer @AnnaLeidreiter @JeremyRifkin @SuzanneWaldman They have no awareness of an infinitude of possibilities.
