Pine-Pine appreciation post
I need to catch up with Space Dandy
I saw geardrops post this on twitter and it’s blowing my mind. Basically making contact with a laptop (even with your bare hands) and measuring the voltage changes and using those changes to figure out the encryption keys of an encrypted device like this is some crazy sci fi bullshit
Side channel shit be crazy, yo. “Side channel” is crypto-speak for attacking a system by examining the elements by which it’s implemented, generally the physical hardware (and the limitations thereof) it’s being run on. The simple end of it is stuff like “We know it takes n picoseconds to check each letter in a password, so we feed it a password, and if it takes 3*n to tell us it’s wrong, we know the first two characters are right, and try a different third letter until it takes 4*n to spit us back out again.” The more complex stuff gets into watching voltages, current draw, EM radiation, sounds made by different keys on a keyboard. This is a lovely example of how far we have to go to examine our systems to truly protect ourselves.
When I first read about Van Eck phreaking (basically you point an antenna at a monitor and by analyzing the changesthe electromagnetic radiation it puts off you can reconstruct the image it is showing) it was in some sci-fi short story and I thought it was made up
Gudetama can best be descibed as a lazy, distressed egg who likes to lie around -whether he’s fried on rice or casually resting on top of tamago sushi.
Gudetama is officially my favourite Sanrio character.

Transparent Haman Karn for all your Haman Karn needs.
Salmon have serious swimming skills—some travel thousands of miles to return to their original homes to breed. But even though they can jump as high as 12 feet in the air, they can’t manage to get over massive concrete dams that we have built to block their journeys back to their homes. Now one new idea could give them a boost. The plan involves whisking the fish through a long vacuum tube at speeds up to 22 miles per hour and then shooting them out the other end like a cannon.
The very term “MOBA” is an acronym. The NAME OF THE GENRE is JARGON!
Good point I mean what the fuck is a multiplayer online battle arena you mean like quake or something right
BASICALLY, Riot games wanted to distance themselves from Dota so they made up MOBA, Valve has called Dota2 the far less stupid sounding Action Real Time Strategy or ARTS.
I really love seeing people react to all the ridiculous bullshit that happens in jojo.
Bring back titan Samus.
6’3! SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE 6’3!
GIANT SAMUS IS BEST SAMUS
