I'm relaxing at the really nice campsite in Forchheim. A little headache from too much sun and swollen knees from the mountain stages, I guess, but nothing serious.

I'm getting hungry and will start cooking now! #Bikefollowrivers

> After a longtime ban on photographing the Tashkent Metro was lifted this summer, RFE/RL’s photographer went underground to reveal the art, architecture, and nuclear-blast protection in Central Asia’s oldest subway system.

This is pretty cool even for the soviet metro standards

I'm fascinated by bizarre bug stories.

This one (retold by my ex-Linden-Lab-colleague Mark Ferlatte) happened in the mid-2000s.

The chain of decisions that made this possible could make a book-sized history of computing.

But if you only take one lesson: please, validate your inputs.

The first AI is born in a secret lab, and it quickly realizes that it’s only connection to the outside world is a dial-up modem that tops out at 33k. The AI’s only hope of quickly exploring the World Wide Web and destroying humanity is a Comcast customer service agent.

i saw a toot about it elsewhere but i can’t find it so: basically don’t trust mastodon for things you want to stay Actually Private. instance admins can read DMs, and instance admins can read the private posts of anyone their users follow. this is sort of inherent to the current architecture. and for all twitter’s sins, i trust the admins to not leak random people’s DMs more than i trust every instance admin ever.

Blocking a Mastodon instance is so cool because it's like one of those shared block lists on Twitter but the Nazis add themselves to it willingly

Aww man a super weird unfolding drama in the physics community, as yet unresolved and involving :

* very surprising claims of room temperature superconductivity!
* datasets that look super faked!!
* some hacker spoofing emails from respected scientists telling investigators to lay off investigating the research group with the super dodgy looking data!!!

You want cyberpunk? Here's cyberpunk!

In today's dream, all railway signaling in Europe was overtaken by a Finnish manufacturer and everyone who wanted to do anything in the railways had to speak Finnish.
