Hashing != encryption[edit]

Re: your userpageWhile both are cryptography, hashing isn't encryption. Encryption is reversible by design. Hashes are designed to be one way.チーズバーガー • めん Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 00:05, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

@CheeseburgerFace Had a feeling it might not have been correct. (But hey, who's to say there isn't some private key that'll magically reverse it? You don't know.) But thanks, I'd never actually bothered to find out what technicality makes encryption special (though I knew what a hash is). Learn something every day :) —Kazitor, pending 00:19, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Just a question, mate. What's wrong with redirects? Nerd (talk) 01:22, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

@Nerd My main objection is that pages that are technically in your history don't display as such. But also, when hovering over the link, it might not be apparent what's going to happen. —Kazitor, pending 03:09, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
Could you please explain exactly what you mean by, "pages that are technically in your history don't display as such"? Nerd (talk) 13:29, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
@Nerd Links to pages in your history get the :visited pseudo-class, which makes them appear a darker blue. If the link is to a redirect to a page you have visited, but you haven't visited the redirect, the browser doesn't know that so it appears light blue. But it's also generally about obscuring what will happen; when you hover over the link it says something that it doesn't go to.— Unsigned, by: Kazitor / talk / contribs
Ah, I see. Thank you! Nerd (talk) 00:13, 15 July 2018 (UTC)


I refreshed the theme for my userpage. I'm now an A.I invented by Google. I am not evil. beep boopClickerClock💾 talk.txt 03:24, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

@ClickerClock huh, I have the "Hack" font installed but it only displays when the CSS is set to "hack" rather than "hackregular". Are these different fonts, or do you have it installed under a different name, or...? Maybe just add "hack" to that list so it displays properly. —Kazitor, pending 03:36, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
I don't have "Hack" installed, I was just guessing for the proper name for it to show up. Thanks for telling me. I'll fix it. I'm more of a Source Code Pro person. —ClickerClock💾 talk.txt 03:43, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
Wait I do have "Hack" installed, I just forgot about it. —ClickerClock💾 talk.txt 03:44, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
No problem :) Maybe I'll check out Source Code Pro; currently I use Fira Code because of the fancy ligatures. —Kazitor, pending 03:45, 14 July 2018 (UTC)


That's beautiful, mate! Thank you for sharing. Speaking of hydrogen, excess heat Generation IV nuclear reactors could be used to produce hydrogen fuel cells. Their temperatures, hot enough to melt lead, is one of the reason why they are more efficient than their predecessors. I will update our article on nuclear power soon.

It was something that was sent to me and I thought seemed like the sort of thing that belongs on WIGO. I really do hope the near future has enough of a push against fossil fuels to prompt more research into sustainable sources and lead to its widespread usage. Until then... —Kazitor, pending 01:39, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
I'm not too worried. Things tend to work out in the long run. People everywhere are becoming more and more environmentally aware. But of course, actually progress is made by actions, not words. Signing international agreements, declaring ambitious goals, or giving inspiring speeches do not really mean much. (Oh, and thank you for removing DJT. I'm getting sick and tired of seeing that guy everywhere, if you know what I mean.) Nerd (talk) 13:26, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
I was trying to work out what you meant, so I looked at my recent edits and had a moment of realisation. I feel exactly the same way, it's just boring really. —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 22:26, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
