RT KDbyProxy: Donald Trump on computer hacking: "Nobody gets hacked. To get hacked you need somebody with 197 IQ and he needs about 15 percent of your password."

RT matrixdotorg: Last Sunday the UK/US/CA/AU/NZ/IN/JP govts issued a statement asking tech companies to add backdoors into E2E encryption. This is a big deal: unfortunately *backdoors do not work*.

RT RedPavlova: As a Nurse of 47 years I will say you can stuff this where the sun dont shine . How insulting. @MattHancock twitter.com/HSJnews/status/131

RT neil_neilzone: โ€œIn a way itโ€™s a little bit disappointing that we still live in an age where gaining a single female engineer requires its own press releaseโ€ twitter.com/ispreview/status/1

RT ZoeJardiniere: You may think that's obvious and it is.
But the constant reinforcement of "Sunak will pay workers" or all the "eat out on Rishi" crap we heard over the Summer is deliberate, and it creates a myth of Sunak as some kind of personally generous benefactor in people's minds

Well, printer has gone to be โ€œadjustedโ€ so that the gaps in SIM cards donโ€™t upset it. Once back Iโ€™ll have the challenge of reverse engineering the USB and making a Linux driver for it. For now it works well using my Ethernet based drivers.

RT WhatsEuroPinion: The government can only account for 4 billion pounds of the 12 billion spent on Serco track and trace.

Where is the missing 8 billion pounds?

RT Mythic_Beasts: . @PayPalUK have arbitrarily and without notice blocked our account. If you need to make a payment, please use another method if possible, otherwise please contact support. We'll update status.mythic-beasts.com as we know more.

Obviously it does not matter what is printed on your SIM card, what matters is the service. But it is cool that you can order an @aaisp SIM card printed with your own choice of artwork!

I have only just discovered that in 2019 they officially banned the 24:00 โ€œend of dayโ€ version of โ€œmidnightโ€. Iโ€™m shocked as an amusing point of pedantry has now vanished, but in the long run it does completely clarify โ€œmidnightโ€ by international standard now.

RT gcluley: Umm.. Twitter hasn't been shut down.

Why on earth would the President of the United States tweet that it has?

Read that again, the *President* of the *United States*.

Something here ain't normal.

Ha, nice one @Apple , selection an image with a QR allows you to link to QR now. Randall (@xkcd) is thwarted!

So for my latest internal interface for a system I am making, I have streamed back to back JSON objects each each way on a TLS TCP connection. It works well.

In every sci-fi that has people hooked up to some sort of suspended animation / artificial reality system, it is impossible to โ€œun plugโ€ people without risking killing them. Future technologists please donโ€™t have this stupid flaw. (Star Trek Voyager this time).

RT BBCPolitics: Government ads with wrong Covid tiers appear in local newspapers

RT neil_neilzone: Is it *really* justifiable that, of the payments made by streaming services, artists get just 13%?

Labels and publishers taking *87%* seems like a statistic well worth investigating.

Weโ€™ve had to legislate against overly powerful publishers - the Stationersโ€™ Company - before... twitter.com/OnlineMediaLaw/sta

Nice, @CostaCoffee, but you know the COVID is a virus not a bacteria, right? Is this just profiteering on peoples fears?
