Re: Brontos Are Doin' It for Themselves

I have had the dubious fun of repairing a few of the exact same surface-mount microUSB jacks, on some gear where the cable was mounted at a right angle to the direction the cable was most likely to get yanked. It was not impressive design. Assuming you can get it resoldered back down successfully (I...

Re: Little Pig, Little Pig! Let Me Admin! (Security Thread)

It's a banner month for circumventing basic security practices. Exhibit B: Google has crafted a practical attack on SHA-1 . A nice big "I told you so" to the hardline approach they've taken to shaming-out SHA-1 TLS certificates for the last several years. Exhibit B-and-a-half: Turns out t...

Re: I'm Driving! I'm a Driver!

I can't speak much to reliability of used cars, unless you want to hear all about my Volvo that is probably older than some of our posters. But I do get to drive a wide variety of smallish rental cars, and based on that experience alone I'd probably get either a Ford Focus or a Mazda 3 if I needed a...

Re: Election 2016

Tom Price as prospective Secretary of Health & Human Services? I can see the hand of Mike Pence in that appointment, and I'm continuing to be amazed/terrified at their ability to pick the person that can most effectively destroy their department for every successive Cabinet pick.

Re: Election 2016

I actually have some sympathy for the registration thing, because here you can roll up to the polls on voting day and register right there. I mean, you gotta bring ID and proof of address, but still, that's the way it should be. You can do that in about 11 states here as well. Most non-shitty state...
