A leak of 120 liters of liquid helium in a medical facility lead to massive failures of Apple iDevices including phones, tablets, and "fitness" tracking bracelets (archived).
UG Federal Communications Commisioner Michael O'Rielly regaled attendees at the "Free Speech America Gala" with a weird ball of Fiat Pantsuitist insanity (archived). The Commisioner attacked so called "Pirate" radio, where people broadcast on radio frequency spectrum without submitting to Fiatist rules as contrary to Free Speech. The cognitive disonnance required to advance the position "Free Speech" is only possible with a permission slip from a censorhip agency is mind boggling.
The daily hate's latest target Gab is set up to have Godaddy steal their domain name as Godaddy tends to do. This is problematic for "all comers" toilets which need the centralized registries, but breaking dependence on centralized DNS is very recommended. In a lesser setback worthy of noting for the indictment, Medium.com suspended Gab's account on their platform and in the process deleted an apologetic post by the Gab team where they announced their cooperation with "law enforcement" among other things.
Germany's Angela Merkel has begun advertising her plan to escape her ruinous political career in these changing, great again times. Her exit will begin this December where she will not seek another term as chairzher of her party and continue through 2021 when she will not seek another term as chancellor. Of course she could lose the chancellorship earlier if her coalition collapses under the weight of the messes she wrought.
IBM has reached an agreement to buy Red Hat, paying cash at a price of 190 USD per share (archived). IBM will colocate Red Hat in their "Hybrid Cloud" section. Red Hat ran out of "rebel" and "Innovator" credibility when the red hat inspiring their name was discovered to be a Cornell University lacross team hat, but being bought out by the punch card company is something else.
Gab, a twitter alternative that welcomes all comers,1 has lost its hosting after the Pantsuit made a fuss over one of their anti-Trump users trying to shoot up a ceremony celebrating the Jewish Covenant of Circumcision (archived). The shooter happened to have an account on Gab where he was likely radicalized into terrorism by US "law enforcement", and an ISP calling itself "Joylent" decided they couldn't continue taking Gab's money while the media was talking about Gab. Paypal joined in and decided they couldn't handle Gab's money.
In this world where Bitcoin exists with the Republican, Pantsuit resistant, PizarroISP running, there is little reason for people interested in publishing with censorship resistance to resort to heathen solutions open to all comers.
While Gab insists they are a "free speech" alternative to Twitter, they crack down on "illegal content" in a disappointing buy in to Pantsuit insanity. ↩
The hole-iest of move fast and break things cults, SystemD has had another hole documented (archived). In systemd-networkd the DHCPv6 client will write outside the bounds of its heap when fed the right kind of packet leading to a range of effects depending on the particular packet fed. Chief SystemD thing breaker and professional tumor Leonart Poettering has published a patch which supposedly addresses this particular documented issue while introducing a unknown number1 of new bugs.
And likely unknowable. Can you truly count how many individual bacteria in a gram of sewer effluent are alive or dead at any moment in time? ↩
The FBI patsy arrested in the recent bombing hoax has been identified as Filipino American Cesar Altieri Sayoc.1 Law enforcement and media reports are continuing to identify Sayoc as "white" in their statements. The education section of his LinkedIn profile is quoted in full below. In it he clearly self identifies as an Asian American.
