https://youtu.be/iCiCO8YNuAw?t=420 so when this lady started talking I had a more "This really sounds like Dutch" feeling than usual with Swiss German. To no surprise she turns out to be Dutch 😂 probably a good example to what I've been saying for quite a while, Swiss German sounds a lot like Dutch
Funny enough said script only had support for a single bank as their customers were all on this one bank. Although it was easy to customize and extend of course.
Sure they never got a lot of users (it was just a 2 man company), but I still think the idea was really cool and supportive for the local community. Sadly the company is gone and the market is mostly gone anyway as most elderly people are just using tablets nowadays (with their own problems of course)
Looking at some old school documents from about 10 years ago while updating my resume. At a company I did an internship where they had a customized ubuntu on their own lightweight machines, slightly modified for elderly people. I had totally forgotten one of my ways of improving their security was killing teamviewer (which was installed by default as we provided remote service) when a banking page was opened. A scam I often hear about in the dutch news nowadays 🤔
Ranting on Ingress, Android, "SafetyNet", and "root/superuser is for hackers" mindset
So, I've been playing #Ingress for a long time, getting to level 3 or higher by Year Two. I've never cheated.
For years, Ingress classic didn't care if you rooted your phone. As long as you weren't GPS spoofing, it was fine.
Now, Ingress Prime uses #Niantic 's anti-cheat for Pokémon Go/etc, going beyond #Google 's patronizingly-named #SafetyNet, scanning for files vaguely related to rooting, even when you deny it Storage access (it's possible for apps to check if a specific file/path exists even if it can't open the file).
In this case? I had…
I renamed it to…
And all is fine so far. 💢
Lesson: Don't penalize ownership, and don't try to verify higher-privilege systems (operating system) from lower-privilege systems (apps).
(For those unfamiliar, Magisk is a popular, open-source rooting/system overlay app. However, the existence of that file has no bearing on Magisk working; you can delete it after installing Magisk and you can create it without root.)

So I set up a @torproject bridge in August because of a campaign they were having (we want more bridges, set one up, send your fingerprint and you might win something). They just out of nowhere send an email back thanking me that my bridge is still running (apparently a lot of people took them down afterwards). Kinda nice to see them actively thanking people that contribute to their network.
This is a feature docker hub themselves offer, or at least sort of. They only offer it for non official images.. And of course, it requires you to have your images on docker hub to begin with, which not everbody wants.
Project I've been working on for a few days. Basically a monitor for docker hub base images, which will send webhooks to your configured projects as they updated so you can rebuild your images automatically with the latest base images. https://gitlab.com/schoentoon/wendy
I recently wanted to setup a new project and mirror it to gitlab.com and github, I however forgot some details. After fishing them up I decided to just make a brief blog post about it instead 😅
