    [–] does peridot still live in the bathroom?.... zeronine 2 points ago in stevenuniverse

    Everything on that page is canon now as far as I'm concerned.

    [–] I love working from home... zeronine 5 points ago in polyamory

    Pro tip: stick to phone conferences.

    [–] Decided to make a classic meme zeronine 3 points ago in ProgrammerHumor

    All of these are bad advice, and lead to passwords that are hard to remember and easy to crack. The NIST guidelines that ensconced these have been updated with better advice. In short:

    • No upper length limits
    • Don't force rotation after just time
    • Rotate after suspected breach
    • Allow all characters (including whitespace and unicode)
    • Don't require any specific character set
    • Salted hash on storage

    I gave a seminar recently about this.

    [–] Reminder! In about 8 hours, we'll be getting a announcement about SU! zeronine 8 points ago in stevenuniverse

    A lot of fans don't like them because they don't advance the main plot and lore of the series, not realizing that the townie episodes are parallels to the overall arc and themes of the show thereby making it directly applicable and relatable. It also emphasizes that Steven is half human. Most of these fans also don't realize that the Rocknaldo episode was about them.

    [–] This special tool for pulling IC chips. zeronine 2 points ago in specializedtools

    Echoing other comments here, I remember the first computer toolkit I ever got, a little leather bound zip case from Radio Shack, had a weird bit of plastic with some flat metal hooks on the end. I thought I was a big computer nerd and had absolutely zero clue what this thing was for. Finally someone explained the chip puller to me and what it was used for. I still have that kit today. In over 25 years, I don't think I've ever used the chip puller once.

    [–] WTW for a significant/noteworthy point in history? [Urgent!!] zeronine 3 points ago in whatstheword

    "Watershed" is a good one.

    "The watershed moment of OP's academic career came when they realized they shouldn't wait until the very last minute to write that essay for class."

    [–] Does anyone else get ridiculously excited when encountering a new piece for the first time? zeronine 3 points ago in lego

    Absolutely! I came back to Lego after about a 25 year break so I had a lot to discover immediately. I remember the first 2x4 slope I saw and was like, wait, that's a thing now?

    [–] Love. It's what makes a Subaru a Subaru. zeronine 1 points ago in funny

    If one hand is filming, how is he driving?

    [–] Other than sex, what's something that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime? zeronine 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I once bought my girlfriend a Lego set but I stuffed voids in the box with tissue paper so that it wouldn't have that telltale rattle when she picked it up or shook it. It was a complete surprise to her when she opened it!

    What media format is this supposed to be? Rectangle mp3?

    [–] My town was home to a total badass during the revolutionary war zeronine 0 points ago in pics

    Absolutely agree -- though I'll say that what he went through and survived is badass no matter which side he's on. That's what I was in awe of, not why he was fighting. :) If a British soldier had done the same, I'd be similarly in awe!

    You mean like how we bomb weapons depots of "insurgents" today? Yeah, seems like a solid military tactic.

    1. There was no Constitution at the time.
    2. There was a war on and he was a soldier though acting as a civilian at the time (the events that lead to this encounter is what all started it)
    3. The definition of "arms" ownership is completely different (single musket-loads, man)
    4. The second amendment, when it did finally show up, is about creating a well-regulated militia at a time when there was no standing army. We have a standing army now, it's mostly redundant. But if you really want to join the state sanctioned militia, the National Guard will be happy to have you.

    The marker's off by a couple years according to other official records.

    Glad we can agree that there should be stringent laws governing their use and ownership, then! A law-abiding citizen should have no problem abiding those laws, after all.
