Why pack 'V'?

substr( $v, $p / 8, 1 ) is a byte, why mask with 4 bytes?

    Oh. That. It's just force of habit, I adapted this bit of code from the way I code bitmasks for IPv4 subnets. It would make more sense to code it as pack 'C',... rather than pack 'V', although it works either way.

[Corion]: Yay. FF now has u2f built-in (behind an about:config setting), so using an USB token to sign in actually works :)
[Corion]: So, it's not all bad with the new FF :)
[holli]: 2factor is a bit too much for me. i just use passwords like jhbn8789q27312laks dmaw98^
[moritz]: isn't there also some about:config setting to enable the old plugin API?
[Discipulus]: indeed, only the logo is nicer
[Corion]: moritz: Hmm, I doubt so, as I think they moved away from XUL and other UI stuff, which was used by most plugins I used
