I better reintroduce myself on here:
Hi, I'm Miriam aka. Miri aka. Miri Mayhem. I fled from early this year because of its inherent drama and it essentially being a second Gab and joined the first instance that looked alright. But finding an instance that actually matches, without creating a new one, is a bit more difficult, so here I am now.
I'm a polyamorous, asexual, trans lesbian, who only started this spring being open about being trans after trying and failing at being stealth. I'm pretty active on Instagram and try to bring more #Transvisibility on there as well as hoping to inspire trans siblings who are early in their journey.
In my offline life I'm currently a nursing student and trying to maintain the last bit of humanity that hasn't already been lost due to alarming lack of nursing staff. In my free time I'm playing Roller Derby in a local league and am planning to get a foot into officiating games as well.
That's it, for now at least.
@DissidentKitty That study is doubly ironic because many Christians say they are cat-holics.
> We have computed the very first chosen-prefix collision for SHA-1. In a nutshell, this means a complete and practical break of the SHA-1 hash function, with dangerous practical implications if you are still using this hash function. To put it in another way: all attacks that are practical on MD5 are now also practical on SHA-1. Check our paper here for more details.
@cambrian_era I have a collection of different pride emoj not already on this server, that I partly collected and partly made by myself. Are you interested in some of them for adding them?
State of #IsolateGab effort:
So as of summer 2019 when Gab ported every single user they had (active or dead) into a forked version of #Mastodon, the founder publicly said they had "over 1 million." As of today *still* just barely over 1 million.
And I suspect the lions share of those are inactive dead accounts still.
And look at the "insularity." 99.1 percent. They are just Gablins inside their echo chamber talking to themselves. And over time that just won't be sustainable.
Servers cost money, and even as they beg for donations, offer "premium features" for pay that other Fediverse servers offer for free, and do deals with whatever VPN's that are willing to take racists and nazi finders fees, still... it won't last if they can't grow.
They forked the #Mastodon code base because their expensive closed source platform was failing and couldn't sustain over time.
Keep it going in 2020.
