The Password Hash

Here we go

I was working in the cube, late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
Plaintext credentials my eye spies
And suddenly to my surprise --

They did the Hash, they did the Password Hash
The password hash! It was hard to smash!
They did the Hash, they stored it on flash
They did the Hash, they did the Password Hash

Lucky for me it was MD5
So my attacks it did not survive
Cracked the password I just stole
Accomplishing my dark goal

They redid the Hash, they did the Password Hash!
The password hash! It was harder to smash!
They did the Hash, they stored it on flash
They did the Hash, they did the Password Hash

Beams from space have penetrated my skin and scrambled my DNA causing parts of my body to commit suicide.

In other words, I got a sunburn.

I am a genderqueer green card holder from Israel.

I moved to the US in 2007 in search of an academic career, but in 2010 decide to join Google and apply for a green card. While I am not a national of the 7 countries mentioned in Trump's ban, I am scared.
In May 2016, while returning from a vacation, I was interrogated at a US point of entry. I was told to leave all my belongings behind, including phones and laptops. My passport and green card were taken away and I was told to wait in a small room, unable to contact anyone, with an American who brought Cuban cigars. When my turn finally came the immigration officer asked why I didn't look like my picture and asked some more simple questions about my occupation and my ID. He asked for my CA driver's license which had the same photo. I asked the immigration official why does the photo even matter when they have verified my fingerprints. He didn't answer. After some more questioning I was released with the immigration officer telling me to "get a new photo". Later that year, I did.

Tomorrow I am going on an international business trip. I told my team members I honestly do not know if or when I will return.

This is not normal.

Rumors are that an EO will require me to submit social media sites, and immigration agents are already questioning green card holders and citizens on their loyalty and political views. Black Lives Matter, a movement I support, may be declared a terrorist organization.

This is not normal.

If I get deported, it would be to Israel, a country that is in the midst of its own extreme right-wing takeover. Benjamin Netanyahu is a big fan of Trump, and is emboldened by this regime. I honestly do not know if I will be safe there.

This is not normal.

I'm going to Disneyland March 5-7. Anyone want to join me?

I Pushed to Prod
(to the tune of "I kissed a girl" by Katy Perry)

This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
The code's checked in, you understand
No circumvention
It's not what, I'm used to
Just want to get it done
I need this Q2
Want my promotion!

I pushed to prod and I broke it
The mess was so caustic
I pushed to prod on a Friday
I hope Techcrunch don't mind it
I was so wrong
You were so right
Now I'm in the spotlight
I pushed to prod and I broke it
I broke it

Pushed all at once, that's my shame
It doesn't matter
A small experimental change
Turn on a feature
It's not what, good SWEs do
Not how they should behave
The process, so confused
Hard to obey

I pushed to prod and I broke it
The mess was so caustic
I pushed to prod just to try It
I hope Techcrunch don't mind it
I was so wrong
You were so right
Now I'm in the spotlight
I pushed to prod and I broke it
I broke it


We think our tests are magical
Find all faults, that's typical
Well, there's one case so critical
Just ready to fry it
Ain't no big deal it's incorrect

I pushed to prod and I broke it
The mess was so caustic
I pushed to prod just to try It
I hope Techcrunch don't mind it
I was so wrong
You were so right
Now I'm in the spotlight
I pushed to prod and I broke it
I broke it
