Petite astuce si vous souhaitez faire basculer votre TIC en mode standard sur votre compteur Linky en étant client.e EDF:

Contacter le 09 69 32 15 15 puis choix 1, 2 puis 4.
Si le conseiller ne connait pas la procédure, dites lui de faire une F185 sur le site SGE en choisissant le mode standard. Préciser que la procédure a été confirmée précédemment avec le groupe TD.

Appeler de préférence en période creuse (temps de midi par ex). Normalement, le changement devrait être effectif la nuit suivante.

@Emmanuel Caillé la puissance réactive est indiquée pour les contrats <= 36kVA avec l'option production, d'après ce que j'ai pu lire. Ça ne remonte pas d'après zigbee2mqtt, en tout cas.
ha, j'ai pas d'option production.

A DICOM image.

DICOM is the medical image format, very TIFF-like.
Its preamble makes many polyglots possible, including TIFF-DICOM sharing the same image data.
It doesn't tolerate appended data - but just append a "private" tag if needed.
Dissection of a DICOM image, showing the preamble, the magic signature, and the tags and their values.

Every company saying that their data is encrypted at rest with "strong encryption" is saying nothing. It's a free, effortless and shameless statement to boost the org's false security posture to the untrained masses. It's even worse when they say it to justify that their security was sufficient after a breach.

Encrypted data at rest just means they use the cloud. It's standard cloud practise. They give it basically for free at a button toggle. "Using military grade encryption" yes I know it's AES. That shouldn't make you feel any safer. Optus even said their unauthenticated API was protected by double layers of encryption! (TLS in transit and AES at rest!). That meant nothing, and did nothing to protect their breach. Why?

Because the threat models that encryption at rest protects against is someone walking into some data center and grabbing hard drives. And no one does that. Every piece of encrypted information stored by your business is constantly decrypted at some point for use - especially customer and production data. Any attacker who compromises your employees with access to cloud resources, or an application/system with access to those cloud resources will have credentials and permission to decrypt the data. Because at the end of the day encrypted data is just as useless to you as it is to the attacker.

when we, 1Password, talk about our layers of encryption we don’t even mention the encryption that comes free with AWS. What matters is data encrypted with available only to our users.
yea no, I get that, and SRP is not in the typical encryption bullshit list that I meant. 1password being a password manager obviously needs to have its encryption described on the tin, in technical detail, which it does quite well.

@h4sh, thank you. I wasn't taking your post as being about us. I, too, get very irritated when services call "encryption at rest" is a defense against an exceedingly narrow threat. (Someone walks away with the hard drives.)

I get even more irritated when auditors and the like conflate that with what we do.

@WPalant this is how I feel about podcasters saying server side AES on S3 will solve public bucket leaks


- "How obscure are your musical tastes?"
- "Well, today I found out I've got a full shelf of CDs the national library in charge of the mandatory deposit in my country does not even have in its database, which lead me to read back the law to ensure I wasn't liable to a hefty fine."
Hum, that's not really an incitation to share...
tbf I share 99% of my library being online daily. But I still keep a few exclusive recordings which I know are either very rare to come by or shit I recorded from livesets from when I used to work as a sound engineer.

The rare records no one would actually be interested in, the live sets could easily be tied to me if they happend to leak on yt or something.

Note this is a choice some IT person made years ago and nobody realizes is optional, or something is actually broken and people just got used to it. Re-Auth could be entirely seamless if they wanted, or only enforced for certain apps. This is not intrinsic.

Something I see a lot is people accepting bad IT experiences as mandatory. Like this is life, get on with it. But this isn't remotely true.
It's a choice, sometimes just not a choice an organization realizes it has. I have to be the person calling bullshit on stuff because I know. Because I understand what's normal outside the org, or I have literally done their job before as an IT Generalist.

The business malaise in accepting deteriorated user experiences is frankly shocking.
You're being led like a dog by people who aren't being challenged to do better. Who often are not stupid and can do better, but have no mandate to venture it.

Hearing radio astronomy objects is actually fairly easy on the 2m amateur band with a small array. Here a 4x7 element array easily hears the Sun and Sagittarius A. This from an urban backyard!



I was unable to pull the data wire, since the duct was obstructed, so I went the wireless way. Next step: attempting to switch telemetry from legacy to standard format.
j'avais évité ce truc car zéro intégration avec home-assistant et pas envie de bricoler... dommage ça semblais quand meme intéressant. enfin, 50€ pour ça ça reste quand même du vol.

In 1959, the IBM 1401 computer was built from boards called SMS cards. A single board might hold just 3 logic gates so the computer needed thousands of boards. Silicon transistors weren't popular yet, so they used germanium transistors. Source: https://www.righto.com/2021/03/germanium-transistors-logic-circuits-in.html #history #computing

A slide with the title "Thee Idea" It has an IBM reel-to-reel vacuum column tape drive on the left and a Ryzen Threadripper picture on the left, between the two there is a purple double-headed arrow with the text "catgirl magic" above it.

We have to deromanticize community. It's not some pristine untouched forest of soft moss and good vibes. The corporations count on that misconception to stripmine us for content.

Community has always been as weird and messy as humans are. It's work. It's relationships. It's hard. There isn't a magic number. They aren't inherently anticommercial. They don't all look or act the same.

That's one of the reasons I wrote this and am driven to write more: https://powazek.com/posts/3571

I slept very poorly last night due to the news that Musk gave privileged / possibly PII & DM level access of Twitter mod access to a variety of strident anti-LGBTQ (especially anti-trans) bigots who masquerade as journalists. This is an incident which would require user notification under California law, if it weren’t for the platform owner granting it. It still might be a violation of privacy laws. It’s absolutely a disaster for all LGBTQ people who used Twitter.

In August 2011, Los Alamos techs posed 8 plutonium rods on a work table to take a few photos.

Had these rods rolled into each other there would have been an instant criticality event. (Think "Demon Core")

Worst still, a supervisor who saw the display ordered the techs to safe the rods, ignoring the protocol to evacuate EVERYBODY (b/c even a hand could moderate the neutrons & cause criticality).

It caused a 4-year, billion-dollar shutdown.

...

Smart people + overfamiliarity = stupid things.
