Today I passed what was obviously @thegibson's home town: Gibson City. This feels like the perfect place for a hacker party at some point.
I know some people are still upset about the original HP ENVY lines being discontinued in 2012. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP_Envy
Just remember, you can still get the original HP in your local grocery store. I hope this offers some consolation.
In related news, TIL HP sauce is a thing.
I just started my first real woodworking project and plan on taking it from "a tree growing in our yard" to "a finished cutting board". I've worked with lumber here and there, but working with green wood and drying it myself is a whole new thing for me! I expect there to be some failures during the learning experience.
doyensec looked into WiFi direct (the thing that lets you send files from one phone to another without any internet access nor WiFi) and found multiple minor issues in all 3 implementations that they investigated. https://blog.doyensec.com/2020/12/10/novel-abuses-wifi-direct-mobile-file-transfers.html
The punchline is that if you accept a transfer from someone, you might get more than you bargained for. They claim one of the bugs is wormable, but provide no mechanism to bypass the acceptance prompt nor to gain code execution, so I don't believe them.
Hey @stevelord, do you know of anyone getting the original secret of monkey island working on modern computers? I tried virtualbox and Win 98, but that went poorly (driver support, then it just stopped working altogether).
I feel like I should be able to play games that I bought, on O/See that I bought. I still have a CD-ROM drive too.
@jerry You are seen
I could really use some neighborly help from someone who has a clue about ZFS.
Boot disk won't mount b/c I have 3 pools with the same name (the 2 dupes are from previous installs). I can import the correct one by ID from my initramfs shell. How can I destroy the other two?
Status and list commands don't help me because they only show things successfully imported.
Boosts appreciated! I've spent all last weekend on this. :'-(
"In Big Sur Apple decided to exempt many of its apps from being routed thru the frameworks they now require 3rd-party firewalls to use (LuLu, Little Snitch, etc.)
Q: Could this be (ab)used by malware to also bypass such firewalls?
A: Apparently yes, and trivially so"

I just learned that there is gaming company named Razor and that they have an adorable mascot names Sneki Snek.
I want to see fiscal responsibility in my leaders. That's what the Republicans claim to support, and yet the latest administration is continuing to make things worse, by about 10% in 2 years (2019 numbers do not appear to be available yet).
For those who are curious as to how the national debt could go up when so many services were cut, it's due to tax reforms cutting income more than expenses were cut.

I like figuring out how things work. he/him
Mostly hackers, mostly in Urbana, IL, talking to each other & our friends on like-minded servers without giving our personal data to the marketing machine.
