@ekzyis is a bit fighty ( in a funny way ), often procrastinating ( too much on his hand I guess ), "lazy" but in a smart way! but he's one of the kindest stackers in SN:))
Thanks for building SN and being the dev always listening and fixing bugs as we catch them!

Are you trying to grab my sats? If so, you're doing a good job :)
reply
maybe I could offer my honest feedback as a service šŸ§
I'm not good at saying nice things, but I do like to inspire others to be better

Oh, I think this is similar to what I had in mind when I mentioned r/roastme here. I just called it "roasting people" and not "honest feedback", lol. But yeah, there is a difference between just wanting to roast people and giving good, honest, precise and accurate feedback :)
I think it could be a great service. Honest feedback is always very useful and appreciated, so why not pay for it?

honesty is undervalue! I guess that's part of the reasons why I really appreciate the super toxic @DarthCoin

Yeah, he's just so "toxic" because we all aren't "toxic" enough.
Therefore, he has to be toxic for all of us, lol
reply
Haha this is a cool reply. Honesty in this society is undervalued!

I believe me and @ekzyis have a lot in common when it comes to our interests and passions - programming, networking, security, privacy, bitcoin, and all things tech related.
His two territories ~crypto (cryptography) and ~security (meat space and cyber space), are part of my short list of territories that I frequently check out and recommend.
It's surprising that ek hasn't received many comments on his bio... considering the proof-of-work he consistently showcases and his contributions to SN. He definitely deserves more recognition. Hey, @Natalia and @davidw, show him some love by leaving a comment on his profile aswell! šŸ˜„
reply
@ekzyis is kind of a big deal. Really pushing Stacker News forward not just on the dev side but also with engaging original discussions.
Loved by many stackers from afar, and always raising the bar šŸ‘
reply
I guess stackers usually pay more attention to the bio comment part when new accounts join - being warm welcoming.
I haven't really thought about using it to share love haha, but yes, I agree with you - we need to show more love to people whom we care about.

Btw, I think you left out CTFs on purpose. I will make it my mission to also make you interested in CTFs in 2024, lol :)
reply
yeah, you are right, it was the first time i heard that term (maybe second, i think i remember a scene from Mr. Robot where he was in an underground hacker club or something and they were hacking each other i think that was CTF right?) šŸ˜ƒ i haven't looked much into it tho

20 sats \ 3 replies \ @ek OP 1 Jan
Yep, there was a scene like this :)
And I think they weren't hacking each other. That's a specific form of CTFs: Attack and Defense
I think it was a Jeopardy-style CTF as explained here:
Jeopardy-style CTFs has a couple of questions (tasks) in range of categories. For example, Web, Forensic, Crypto, Binary or something else. Team can gain some points for every solved task. More points for more complicated tasks usually. The next task in chain can be opened only after some team solve previous task. Then the game time is over sum of points shows you a CTF winer. Famous example of such CTF is Defcon CTF quals.
I only played Jeopardy-style CTFs so far though.

I need to rewatch the show. I only watched the first 3 seasons (i think?) when they came out, many years ago.

Oh, this means you didn't finish it? It's well worth finishing it imo :)
reply
Yeah. Life got in the way, and for some reason i completely forgot about it.
This time i will understand the show/hacking scenes better ;)
The OST's were amazing too.

Btw, I think we didn't specify this in our contract so that's on me but ...
Are you going to delete this comment? lol
reply
No, the comments will never be erased from the timeline. :) will update the post later.
reply
Oh wow, what a way to start the year! I just woke up and this is the first notification that I read on my phone.
Thank you for your kind words, this was well worth 500 sats. And was indeed a steal since I got 2 comments for free as @Natalia mentioned, lol

Wishing you a Christmas filled with warmth, love, and happiness.

you have the same story arc?

Very close to the same. There may have been some 6 months of shitcoining on the side thrown in, but I found my way back on course.

I'll be honest I still have a few erc20 dust stuff I can't pay the fees to do anything with since I sold the eth. Oh well. I'm glad I sailed out of that storm.
Finding spaces like this, interacting with others, and actually using lightning has been a way better experience.
