Internet forums are disappearing because now it's all Reddit and Discord. And that's worrying.
  • I’m kinda split on it tbh.

    On one hand, we have a literal ip spacing crisis - mainly because there’s bajillions of arguably repetitive content among other non scrupulous stuff.

    On the other hand, having a niche community has its pros.

    Totally agree with your analogy of Walmart though - but then there’s also things like FediNet which basically let people use a standard framework to hve their niches.

    It’ll be interesting to see what the future brings

  • How many people actually want fully on-site IT jobs?
  • Keep this in mind, some places raises will barely cover inflation.

    Now factor in gas and, most importantly, time spent commuting.

    All that on top of effectiveness in working with social interruptions, trips to the coffee machine, bathroom breaks, lunch, etc.

    Any of these businesses that are pushing for on-site are locked into costs from renting space - guarantee it. I get wanting to do the occasional face showing or in person meetings, but they should be concise and few in number - if they’re an efficient shop. Plenty of new blood that get the value of hybrid/remote work.

  • The Feds Want to Know How Fake Titanium Got in Boeing's Planes
  • I’ll take X company cheaped out, bought from unreliable, dog shit materials provider in country Y (who either purposely or neglectfully knew what they were doing, as a manufacturer), and now has a scape goat despite the root of the issue for 5000 please.

  • Pentagon ran secret anti-vax campaign to undermine China during pandemic
  • Let’s be clear - this was a disgusting move on behalf of the US. Something that happened under Drumpf, specifically pushed by the military state, and against actual diplomats wishes.

    This, yet again, was stupidity pushed by the toxic burning pit of tires that is the military in the US. Backed by a moron Fascist, that was shutdown when Biden came into office (eventually, after it worked for the most part and became less relevant - go figure. Classic opportunistic, ‘we’re the good guy’ democrats)

    This government is rotten and decaying and its death is expedited by war-hungry militaries. As it appears to be, across the world and nations. We have a human problem on our hands and no amount of “we’re the good guys” will ever solve it. Everyone is complicit in this shit and it’s time we fucking own up to our failures and struggles to actually solve the root of our problems. Enough is enough.

  • Google Search Result Link Hover (Edge/Chrome)

    Hey all!

    While investigating some malvertising campaigns today, I noticed that one of the sponsored google search results, upon hovering, appeared to be changing/resolving through rather than simply showing what link was being used by the result.

    Any ideas as to how this hover url result works and if you can disable resolving/force top-level results upon hovering over anchor elements?

    Malvertising is hot hot hot!

    Windows Syslog Receiver

    Hey all, got a quick question!

    I want to receive, parse and store syslogs from various devices on my home network on my windows box. I know, I know, its a bit backwards but I'd like to proceed with this sort of setup if possible (not against discussion, of course).

    I've looked and looked for options but it seems like everything has been bare bones and basically just receives, or is locked behind premium. Surely there's some sort of solution out there, no? I'd be willing to implement something in Python if I need to but I'm considerably more hesitant when compared to using an open source soln.

    Thanks for your time, looking forward to discussing/learning more!

    GPT Malware Creation

    Anyone else getting tired of all the click bait articles regarding PoisonGPT, WormGPT, etc without them ever providing any sort of evidence to back up their claims?

    They’re always talking about how the models are so good and can write malware but damn near every GPT model I’ve seen can barely write basic code - no shot it’s writing actually valuable malware, not to mention FUD malware as some are claiming.

    Thoughts?
