Cyberpunk is the idea that technology will condemn us to a future of totalitarian nightmares here you can discuss recent events and how technology has been used to facilitate greater control by the elites, or works of fiction

>Psychobiotics were previously defined as live bacteria (probiotics) which, when ingested, confer mental health benefits through interactions with commensal gut bacteria. We expand this definition to encompass prebiotics, which enhance the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. We review probiotic and prebiotic effects on emotional, cognitive, systemic, and neural variables relevant to health and disease. We discuss gut–brain signalling mechanisms enabling psychobiotic effects, such as metabolite production. Overall, knowledge of how the microbiome responds to exogenous influence remains limited. We tabulate several important research questions and issues, exploration of which will generate both mechanistic insights and facilitate future psychobiotic development. We suggest the definition of psychobiotics be expanded beyond probiotics and prebiotics to include other means of influencing the microbiome.

A few papers on using microbe to convert coal into methane.

>Microbial CH4 chemistry and its formation in coal are summarised. The results of recent research on microbial CH4 formation are reviewed from Australia, China, Germany, Japan, and the USA. Two fields of interest are considered in this report. Enhanced microbial CH4 production is under investigation to improve the yield of CBM. A further development is to inject CO2 in coal seams, using microbes to convert it to CH4 for recovery.
>There is reliable evidence for the production of CH4 through recent microbial activity in coal beds. Microbial CH4 may be enhanced artificially and there is an incentive to turn CBM, where appropriate, to a continuously renewing system. The introduction of large quantities of CO2 from carbon capture systems could have a favourable effect on microbial CH4 formation. However, there are uncertainties about the supply of H2 which is essential to form CH4. Field and laboratory studies are in progress to address gaps of knowledge in the geology, microbiology and engineering.

>Microbial methane accumulations have been discovered in multiple coal-bearing basins over the past two decades. Such discoveries were originally based on unique biogenic signatures in the stable isotopic composition of methane and carbon dioxide. Basins with microbial methane contain either low-maturity coals with predominantly microbial methane gas or uplifted coals containing older, thermogenic gas mixed with more recently produced micPost too long.

So I found this comic while reading about bitcoin privacy. I never thought about it this way.
I guess it makes sense that you don't really need complicated password, hard to remember, just put it in a phrase which computer will take ages to solve even though its easy to remember for you in particular.
But couldn't this make it easier for people to know you to break to your passwords? Still I guess it would be pretty difficult.

This unironically made me think. What are your thoughts, /tech/?

 No.2

>>191
ugh, I'll start with something that makes sense first and then move to harder passwords later. Really need to do a cleanup in my PC files and stuff first…

 No.3

>make it easier to break your passwords
A few considerations:
You are supposed to use random dictionary words, not a phrase you make up yourself.
The "Entropy" mentioned is a measure of pure randomness, so even if someone knows you used this method you can be sure of your safety if the entropy was high enough.


Personally I think this comic is a great advance in security for normies, but if you care about this sort of stuff you must to combine it with opsec.

The first principle is to know your adversary, which in practice means you choose an adversary to defend against.

For example: Your bank account might attract professional crackers with scripts for dictionary attacks and fuzzing, but they don't know you personally so a nonrandom passphrase may well protect against them. Your friends and family may know about your interests, but you might bet on them not having the expertise to build a dictonary and run scripts. If a bank employee or the state by extention wants access, your password aint gonna do shit. So even though your bank account is a high-profile target a nonrandom passphrase is surprisingly secure.

This does make assumptions about your situation. If all your personal information is available online it's possible to build a dictionary to solve your passphrase. Don't put personal information online. Personally I have some close friends who have the expertise to build a dictonary e.g. from all the emails I sent them, so I have to be more careful in selecting the passphrase, that's what random words are for.

The second principle is to know who has access. E.g. Who has access to your desk and does this provide a path for information to leak to the adversaries you chose? If not you can leave all the sensitive stuff right there on your desk.
