If a catastrophe caused the Internet to crash, there are 7 people in the world who have keycards that can reboot the system when all 7 keys are used together. Source
It’s getting to the point where technology is indistinguishable from magic.
"Oh, no, the MASSIVE INTANGIBLE LIBRARY OF INFORMATION which allows humans all over the planet to communicate and share information has ceased functioning! Call upon the seven sages whom hold the artifacts which will repair it!"
Dude its even better than that, they have to journey to a certain location in america to combine their codes into the Master Code which can revive the internet.
did fucking hideo kojima design this system
This is fairly bullshit. They’re talking about the key (password) for re-enabling the DNSSEC signing certificate for the root servers.
Except that since roughly 98% of the internet’s DNS is not signed with DNSSEC, (such small timers as Amazon, Google, Microsoft, AOL, EBAY, PayPal, none of them use DNSSEC) those servers will still work without the key, because unless you are running, a) chrome or firefox with a special plugin, or b) your own DNS server that will not accept non DNSSEC responses, you will never know if you are on a DNSSEC secured site or not. Our customer lookup servers recognize and pass DNSSEC information but only if the key is wrong will they block the lookup. Because the same people control the root servers and the DNSSEC repositories (which are global) all they would have to do is remove the key entries from both and things would stabilize in hours.
Trying to give a bit of personality to my character sketches
This month I made patterns from Youtube videos of flying animals! I marked specific points on the wing throughout one wingbeat, and drew in curves that fit all 15 points in the wingbeat loop.
It was a bit of a challenge to draw this character as Nimona is drawn in a style that is quite different than my own.
Nimona had its last update today, so I thought I would reblog this and let everyone know what a fun comic it was. I encourage you to check it out or preorder the print edition.
Full body drawing of the character from yesterday
Initial character face sketches. I know I want her to have curly hair, strong cheekbones, strong jaw, and a short face. Just have to start refining and discovering her personality so I can start drawing her consistently.
