A five year old Reddit post just helped me solve a knotty problem.
I hate to think how much useful info is being lost in ephemeral services like Discord, Slack, and IRC.

I work at a ccTLD (.IS), and lately we are seeing a *lot* of new accounts immediately registering multiple domains that all had been registered in the past. I suspect we're not the only ccTLD that sees this.

We know of at least two instances of this being used to take over social media accounts that had e-mails in expired domains set as backup e-mail addresses.

This seems to be organized and well-resourced.

Please double-check you don't use e-mails in any expired domains anywhere.

If you have other options, don't buy Starlink. If that's your only viable option, please tell them, as a customer, that you care about keeping Low Earth Orbit safe for use for the future, and that you care about dark night skies.

There is a LOT more that these fantastically talented engineers could be doing to make the satellites darker and to use fewer of them to provide service. But they will only do that if it's a priority for their employer.

“.01% of bitcoin holders hold 27% of all bitcoin! That’s 100x the wealth concentration of the regular economy.”

Next time someone tells you cryptocurrencies and blockchain are about decentralisation, laugh in their faces. Loudly. While pointing at them.

I highly recommend reading this about #monkeypox . It really gets to the point of what you want to know in language most of us can understand!

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but there’s a deadly pandemic going on.

Many people can’t get vaccinations (e.g. young kids) and it can still cause potentially life-long disability even when vaccinated and if the acute disease phase is “mild” or not noticeable.

Wear a mask.

For fucks sake, if you’re a COVID denier or anti-vaxxer get out of my timeline

So... 5 days isn't enough... and we infected people with something we knew would cause mass disability..

I mean this just confirms what most of us already knew..

Long Covid sucks.. and you don't want it.. because it's not just a cold or flu.. it's SARS

Nature: The pandemic’s true health cost: how much of our lives has COVID stolen?

Santa Clara County’s #covid19 case counts are now somewhere about halfway to the peak of January 2021 figures, with a strong upward trend. It’s already far worse than the Fall 2021 wave.

This wave will probably not be as bad as the January 2022 Omicron one, but it’s not going to be trivial.
