On some websites lately I see "Subscribe to our newsletter!" buttons now along with a captcha. Srsly? Doesn't it dawn on them how futile this is? Maybe this will be the final blow to such practices after all.

And there are captchas recently that take me over 1 minute to solve because of deliberately slooooooooooooow fade-in pictures. The web is becoming more and more unusable.

In future, there will be programs that, by the way person writes, will be able to tell, if two different texts were written by the same person. Well, probably there are already systems like that. Such a system is a topic of whole south park cartoon season, by the way.

I am not much concerned about my anonymity (finding me is as easy as googling “lowpolybrain”) but there are other places on web I might someday want to go and stay anonymous there.

Now there’s a question. I am learning English. The way I type changes every, like, month. Of course, there are still habits, like inserting the word “like”, but the overall structure and the way of typing changes every day.

Will that mean I will be kind of immune to detection by some kind of a neural network smart ass text analyzers? Comments welcome.

[Bitcoin Munich Meetup] Bisq & BBQ

Tuesday August 22nd, 18:00
Pirate Party LGS Bayern Schopenhauerstraße 71, 80807 München U2 Milbertshofen, exit South-West. 3 minute walk along Schopenhauerstraße.

https://www.meetup.com/Bitcoin-Munich/events/240705685/

We're excited to have Manfred Karrer, founder and lead developer of Bisq, formerly Bitsquare, an anonymous (or better: identity-agnostic) decentralized application for exchanging and trading crypto-coins against each other as well as against fiat currency and back. It makes use of the Tor network in the background.

On our meetups we're often asked how to get bitcoins, easily, and with optimized privacy.

One short answer (we honestly often forget to mention) is to download, install and run the free and open source application Bisq on your Windows-/Mac-/Linux-PC.

manfred

The long answer Manfred, Austrian-born and now living in Barcelona, will give in the in-depth introduction, presentation and walk-through of his masterpiece, long-standing, well-known and widely adopted in the crypto-currency space. He will explain and show all the features which might be overwhelming to newcomers at first, like why arbitration and escrows are necessary on this platform and how they work.

Especially there'll soon be a DAO (not an ICO) feature in Bisq, so you'll learn how you can become part of its eco-system.

Here are some interviews with Manfred:

We'll also have BBQ, just because. It's summer after all, seems the weather will be nice, and as far as it seems we'll be kindly hosted by the Pirate Party who have a backyard, terrace, and grill.

Attackers Use DDoS Pulses to Pin Down Multiple Targets.... A “pulse wave” DDoS attack comprised of a series of short-lived bursts occurring in clockwork-like succession (Fig. 1), pulse wave assaults accounted for some of the most ferocious DDoS attacks we mitigated in the second quarter of 2017. In the most extreme cases, they lasted for days at a time and scaled as high as 350 gigabits per second (Gbps). #DDoS #pulse_ wave_DDoS #HACKER #SECURITY #BOT https://www.incapsula.com/blog/pulse-wave-ddos-pins-down-multiple-targets.html
