Wow, apparently my delivery driver didn't want to leave my package unattended. I'm in an office with over 70 people in it. I call bullshit on the delivery being attempted.

I have a second Facebook account to use on sites/apps which only allow FB logins, and this morning after logging into it for the first time in months to update the profile picture, I was locked out for "suspicious activity", and the only way to proceed and unlock the account was to provide a mobile phone number for a six digit code confirmation code to be sent to.


RT Remember when they let the British public decide on the name of a boat? And the result was disregarded because they felt the public's decision was too silly to follow through on?

"holy balls. this is incredible

the [libssh] vulnerability literally works like this:

me: "can i log in?"

server: "no. you need a password."

me: "hacker voice i'm in"

server: "login successful. you're in""

I feel like this article somewhat misses the point.
You could also very easily ask "Why don't period dramas move on, stuck, as they are, with their olden day aesthetic"

I've fallen down the rabbit-hole of starting to graph "just a couple of things" on my home network, and now I will be spending the rest of my life creating grafana dashboards...

Note to self: when you run all of your browser traffic through a socks proxy, the browser extension which talks to a local service running on will struggle to work until you add a proxy exception for localhost.

On the plus side, I've now got Joplin ( ) fully up and running, and am confident that it'll be a good evernote replacement for me.

Is there a version of this windows 10 update which *doesn't* send stuff back to Microsoft?

Unexpected WFH today, so using my laptop, not my work macbook, and when it was time for the video conference, I discovered that my £80 ebay X220i is such a low spec that it is without webcam.

This pleases me, and means that my procrastination in buying a new privacy cover was well worth it ;-)

Kudos to the RaidSonic customer service team over in Germany. Replied within a couple of hours to my "is it possible to get replacement system boards for my icy box enclosure" email.

Unfortunately for me, the answer, after providing the serial number, was "that’s from first generation and old. We can’t replace this PCB".

Fortunately for me, I have replacement capacitors, and voltage regulator IC in the post, so fingers crossed I can coax it back to life.
