Well, I managed some 😎

I have 3D regions now, which consist of a stack of 2D layers, each of which maps to a SadConsole surface.

The lowest layer is always solid (the sea bed) and I've used a simple CA to grow cave-like rooms for the next layer up, then inverted them (so the hollow rooms now become solid, rounded, organic rock-like formations).

Completed the code to +/- the depth and render each layer. Next I need to "grow" the terrain upwards from the sea bed. πŸ™

I don't know what Deezer is trying to tell me this morning, but segueing from Jason Mraz singing "I Won't Give Up" to Floyd's "Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2" is sending mixed signals. πŸ€”

@Zach I don't tend to notice it, but I do have less followers/follow less people than you. I would take exactly that approach though, if/when it comes down to it. Pare down the list until the signal is clearer. I'm already fairly ruthless about ignoring people who (to my perception) seem to contribute nothing more than meaningless noise to the Fediverse.

~=8 Character Passwords Are Dead=~

New benchmark from the Hashcat Team shows a 2080Ti GPU passing 100 Billion password guesses per second (NTLM hash).

This means that the entire keyspace, or every possible combination of:
- Upper
- Lower
- Number
- Symbol

...of an 8 character password can be guessed in:

~2.5 hours

(8x 2080Ti GPUs against NTLM Windows hash)

#Hacking #Infosec

Hoping to do a little this weekend. On my submarine game. Unless I get distracted by writing. Which I probably will.

@ivyandgoldx As a heads up, there is currently a fairly heated argument going on in my office between someone from New Mills, two fellas from Macclesfield, a lad from Bolton, one from Leicester and another from Cambridge. πŸ˜‚

@ivyandgoldx I don't get the muffins thing at all. One of my colleagues calls them muffins. It's wrong. Muffins have fruit in them, like teacakes...

@ivyandgoldx Map wouldn't display for me, but if there's any confusion:

I played tig in school.

A gap between houses is a ginnel.

Bacon and egg goes on a barm.

And the last meal of the day is tea.
