What do I think about Facebook’s “Rooms”?

October 24th, 2014

In short: Nice idea, not so good implementation.

Nice idea: welcome back, 1988! IRC anyone?

The Implementation:
1) Scan a qrcode in order to join a room, seriously?
2) Where is /list?
3) Why nickname is only unique per room? people can use other people’s nicknames and impersonate them on other rooms…
4) Where is the android client?
5) Why does it require IOS 7?
6) Why is it only available on the US apple store?

Really disappointing.

On the other hand, you can always connect to DALnet 🙂

freenode servers got hacked?

September 13th, 2014

17:33 [freenode] -tomaw(tom@freenode/staff/tomaw)-

[Global Notice] Earlier today the freenode infra team noticed an anomaly on a single IRC server. We have identified that this was indicative of the server being compromised by an unknown third party. We immediately started an investigation to map the extent of the problem and located similar issues with several other machines and have taken those offline. For now, we recommend that every change their NickServ password as a precaution.

[Global Notice] We’ll issue more updates as WALLOPS and via social media!

21:31 [freenode] -tomaw(tom@freenode/staff/tomaw)-

[Global Notice] Some have pointed out that it might have been useful if I had told you HOW to update your passwords. Use /msg NickServ SET PASSWORD (without the <>). Thanks!

Lois Lane: You still think I’m crazy?
Clark Kent: I think you’re brilliant. But there is a fine line between brilliance and lunacy.
