My 0.0000002 BTC's worth re ok cupid's decision to dox their users

Some of you may remember that what is now called follow in keybase, used to be called track. This led to a heavily commented issue.

My suggestion to use recognize wasn't because "it sounded nice", but because this was the most accurate description I could come up with for a non-trivial concept concerning crypto and identity — fields where god is in the details and NSA et al hide where they're absent or vague.

I don't claim my idea is or was the best, but facts are:

  • It was ignored.
  • The fact that the term pin wasn't (although it's bound to be confused with something irrelevant on pinterest and something compeletely different on ssh) suggests that @malgorithms et al actively chose not to dignify recognize with an answer (not even a negative one).

Trumpinator: a Lua cgi script that generates a random Trump speech


A Lua cgi script that generates a random speech by walking a Markov chain generated from Trump's inauguration speech.


The output text does not represent Trump's views or anything. It's just a stupid algorithm generating nonsense. If you feel uneasy with it, feel free to fork this and use text from somebody else's speech 😉.

Why Lua?

If I understand correctly, it's the easiest [non-php] way to serve dynamic web content from an OpenWRT router, so I've decided to learn it, and this is my first Lua program (not exactly mine. It's based on an example in the book 😉).

Gotcha - Simple Arduiono alarm system with "dead man switch" support

Lately, somebody started stealing from us. Took us time to figure it out. At first we thought things got lost. When they took a gas tank, it became obvious ;). As far as I know, it ain't over and it's no game. It's a lousy perimeter to defend, especially for old hippies who moved to the land of smiles because they got tired of saying "perimeter"[1].

But enough about me

This is a generic Arduino sketch that lets you whip up a simple and friendly alarm system from whatever sensors and controllers you've got lying around in cat-infested shoe boxes.

  • A sensor (PIR motion detector, magnetic door switch, weight sensor, etc.).
  • A controller (hidden button, keypad, RFID reader, etc.) to temporarily disable ("chill") the system.
  • A noisy device (buzzer, ghetto-blaster, tennis ball cannon aimed at a gong, GSM modem for sending SMS, etc.).
  • A LED.
