Ein #Witz:

Warum ist der Magnet männlich?

Wäre er weiblich, wüsste er nicht was er anziehen soll

Short reminder to **NEVER** reuse passwords, especially not for important accounts.

One of my accounts got hacked, because I logged into it from school (it was an account made specially for school).
Luckily the password wasn't used anywhere else. The email was used somewhere else but was not my "personal email" but rather a business and real life matters (like applying for jobs and such) email.

Also reminder to never trust any systems you do not own. Treat anything you don't know as compromised.

When I initially saw how IT matters are handled there I had a suspicion anyway. I refrained from connecting to the Wi-Fi. Also because everything is bigtime layman DIY.

My paranoid view of security was encouraged once again.
This has one good thing though, I'm more motivated to practice even better IT security.

That's it for today.
Also a little freebie for people that made it this far. I accidentally sent half an email to a customer today, it stopped mid sentence because I fat fingered CTRL+Enter. There was no confirmation prompt.

Getting deplatformed from Apple. “Your account has been permanently disabled. There is nothing else you can do, there is no escalation path.”

Man, if "Save us Tim Cook, you are our only hope!" is the only way of fixing this, I'm glad I bailed a few years ago.

Guter Artikel aus der taz, auf den mich mein Bro aufmerksam machte:

Im Frühverkehr sind 100 Personen entweder in 1 Straßenbahn oder 1 Gelenkbus oder 87 Autos unterwegs. Mehr #Öffis, weniger Staus und mehr Platz in den Städten für Grünflächen. #Hitze #Klimakrise

So, die Wohnung ist durchgelüftet und runter gekühlt. Bring it on! Sommerhitze!

Twitter ist kaputt. Gäbe es doch nur eine coole, dezentrale, freie Alternative dazu.
