    Back in the day that meant you needed trader cred on Heatware.

    We should have a "First & Last" badge for events. @Gargoyle would get his for this event.

  • Re: It is dangerous out there New Years Meltdown and Spectre edition

    I don't think that's the tl;dr at all.

    As I read it, both these attacks require having software running on the processor. That means public cloud service providers are impacted, but not private cloud. For instance, I have trouble imagining how someone leverages this against Google; they aren't letting random people run software on virtualized boxes that neighbor your Gmail account.

    I don't pretend I understand stuff like kernal memory leaks on a deep basis, but I do understand you first need to be running on the same kernal to exploit it.

    I can't help but feel a little disappointed in humanity that the impact of that decision was lost on so many.

    Anecdotally, both theaters I saw it in (in different states) were suitably silently awed by it.

    TEMPERATURES FOR FRIDAY THRU TUESDAY ARE BETWEEN -5 AND 20 F.

    Please bring appropriate clothing.

    It was 61 in the house when I woke up this morning. I've since gotten it back up to 67 with the help of the fireplace and a third electric radiator, but this weather is no joke.
