I see a red door and I want to party rock.
No colors anymore I want to party rock.

Spotify had a big ass breach. This morning? Log in, force a log out of all locations, and reset your passwords.

At least 4,000 accounts affected with passwords exposed in plain text.

TIL `git push --force-with-lease`. I don't always git push force, but when I do, I make sure nothing else has been pushed first. Seriously though, that part always scares me so I'm glad this feature exists.

/opt/Signal/signal-desktop:
Position Independent Executable: no, normal executable!

After the next Electron 2.0.x stable release, Signal-Desktop should be able to use PIE.
