Today I'm grateful I'm using Linux - Global IT issues caused by Crowdstrike update causes BSOD on Windows
  • Nah it was specifically related to their usage of BPF with the Red Hat kernel, since fixed by Red Hat. Symptom was, you update your system and then it panics. Still usable if you selected a previous kernel at boot though.

  • This specific issue is different than the other specific issue, correct.

    The point is, “this could only happen on windows” is wrong.

  • It was affecting RHEL 9.4 users within the last two months.

  • In the US 911 is decentralized, so widespread things will always affect it in some places. Solarwinds hack was another one.

    Assuming the entire phone system isn’t down, there are typically very shitty to deal with workarounds for CAD outages.

  • Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog), 2004
  • Back when Ubuntu was Linux with naked people.

  • Firefox enables user tracking
  • I think it’s more because the Mozilla Corporation is a for-profit company and people barely understand the difference between the Corporation and Foundation or what the Foundation even does, or the rules that allow a non-profit to own a for-profit.

  • Firefox enables user tracking
  • You can’t donate a cent to Firefox anyway, the Mozilla Corporation does not accept donations. Thunderbird is also developed by a for profit company under the Foundation, but does accept non-tax-deductible donations.

  • [Crosspost from r/Firefox] Mozila needs to learn that Chrome's UI/UX is not the "correct UI" for a browser.
  • What’s the difference between active logins and cookies?

    Are offline pages used much anymore?

    I don’t think it obfuscates it, it describes each (most) of those items while grouping them more logically. It is just less granular.

  • Parallel computing with 64,000 processors, in 1986: The Connection Machine CM-1(1986)
  • A while ago I read this really good essay about working with Richard Feynman on the Connection Machine: https://longnow.org/essays/richard-feynman-connection-machine/

  • Android users, what's stopping you from switching to an iPhone?
  • I think you need to look up how it is actually implemented in the wild today, because Google extended it and a very large number of people are using Google Jibe.

  • Android users, what's stopping you from switching to an iPhone?
  • It worked out well for Microsoft since Apple dropped their lawsuit over QuickTime code that made it into Windows via an Intel contractor.

    RCS is in iOS 18, but “integrate the messaging system compatibility” really means “use Google’s RCS”.

  • Android users, what's stopping you from switching to an iPhone?
  • Pull down on the home screen and type the first few letters.

  • Privacy concerns with DHCP (DHCP fingerprinting)
  • They are watching DHCP Discover option 55. The device tells the server what options it expects to receive, and different vendors and device ask for different options or ask for them in a different order, and they are fingerprinting that.

    Cisco also describes the tactic: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/security/identity-services-engine/116235-configure-ise-00.html

    The fingerprints are viewable at https://github.com/karottc/fingerbank/blob/master/dhcp_fingerprints.conf - it is more specific than a mac vendor but not extremely anti-privacy, anybody watching firewall logs will know an iPhone connected pretty easily too.

  • Privacy concerns with DHCP (DHCP fingerprinting)
  • You need to say more than that about what your concern is, especially on devices configured for Mac randomization and other privacy features.

    Aruba is looking at the dhcp traffic and inferring information about the device. The device is not sending all of this data.

  • Thanks for the Software Update!

    @[email protected] or whomever is responsible, thanks for updating the software to 0.19.1 (rc). Silly me I thought it was unlikely to happen over Christmas.

    Really appreciate you taking the time over the holiday to update and hopefully resolve the issues we've been seeing for a while.

    Let the comments flow!
