@gamingonlinux Haha I forgot about that. I used to like to sit 'inside' the cube like it was a room full of desktops.
Now I use a tiling WM which couldn't be further. Fast forward 10 years and I will probably not have a graphical server
@gamingonlinux I remember not wanting to pay for a Windows licence.
My mate showed me Ubuntu circa 2007, showed me the wobbly windows and I was sold.
Don't use Ubuntu anymore, but I've been a Linux guy ever since, and I make a living as a Linux guy.
@matt It was sound thrashing in the end.
"Colleagues had a car broken into and laptops stolen in downtown Mountain View last night while we were at dinner. We wondered how they knew to break into the hatchback when it is not see- through."
"They turn on bluetooth scanners and follow the beacon to find electronics."
What a time to be alive
@daniel_bohrer Ooh fun

Jack Monroe 'loses £5,000 in phone-number hijack'
1. SMS is not good 2 factor auth. Banks should not be using it. I have at least two banks that do.
2. This still requires a password to have been leaked...
2a. Possibly not if the attacker used social engineering with the sim jacked number
@dirtycommo I use xmpp with OMEMO every day. No 'sign up with your phone number' BS
I run a single-user instance so I follow a lot of people to keep the fedi part of fediverse alive.
Ben's sort of single user mastodon instance.
