NIST has so perverted the ways of randomness, their crimes an affront
to decency and entropy oppression...

explain to current day me how y2k day me playing with first generation
C5XL single source XSTORE feature would over a decade later still be
dealing with a shit pool of broken randomness in crypto everywhere.

the only consolation being that the technology irrelevant total
fuck-ups, like goto fail, or debian openssl, or android secure random,
prove that the world needs to learn to sweat the simple, dead
important stuff before they get all concerned and atwatter over the
esoterics of threat models and computational complexity.


i have been informed that hackers and cypherpunks and malcontents are
more productive countering the quo when they are amused or happy.
   ...  "2014 [and counting] - never have we reduced the scope of
info|comsuck unknown unknowns at a faster rate!"
  for the REers
   ... "2014 [and counting] - never have we expanded our attack
surfaces at a faster rate!"

, ... the and counting is a heavy handed overt reference to the fact
that i will overdose on some cool new future drug long before the
trickle of disclosure reaches its conslusion.  this is not an
acceptable circumstance.  -_-

(did do lul right?)
