Biden’s exit from the race is just what Trump feared
  • Hopefully it leaves the Republicans without enough time to develop and implement a new strategy. It wouldn't surprise me if they have some contingency plan already, but it might be too late for them to actually use it.

  • 'Is Stephen Miller okay?': Dems gleeful as Trump adviser has 'meltdown' over Biden dropout
  • I've been very much thinking that Biden had the best chance to win, mostly due to name recognition, and that switching candidates would be a bad idea because there isn't a lot of time left for campaigning. I didn't think Joe was necessarily the best person to be president (given the options), but I did think he had the most exposure and was most likely to collect votes.

    But I didn't really consider that switching candidates might seriously upset the Republican campaigning strategy. This could work. As long as the Democrats line up behind Kamala and don't fragment, this risk might pay off.

  • Flatpak is not a container and should not be thought of as such for security/privacy purposes:

    In general though we try to avoid using the term container when speaking about Flatpak as it tends to cause comparisons with Docker and rkt, comparisons which quickly stop making technical sense due to the very different problem spaces these technologies try to address. And thus we prefer using the term sandboxing.

    It can provide container-like functions if specifically configured for that, but that's not normal and it shouldn't be relied on as a security barrier.

  • Major IT outage affecting banks, airlines, media outlets across the world
  • This sort of fix might not be accessible to a lot of employees who don't have admin access on their company laptops, and if the laptop can't be accessed remotely by IT then the options are very limited. Trying to walk a lot of nontechnical users through this over the phone won't go very well.

  • Major IT outage affecting banks, airlines, media outlets across the world
  • If all the computers stuck in boot loop can't be recovered... yeah, that's a lot of cost for a lot of businesses. Add to that all the immediate impact of missed flights and who knows what happening at the hospitals. Nightmare scenario if you're responsible for it.

    This sort of thing is exactly why you push updates to groups in stages, not to everything all at once.

  • Major IT outage affecting banks, airlines, media outlets across the world
  • Wow, I didn't realize CrowdStrike was widespread enough to be a single point of failure for so much infrastructure. Lot of airports and hospitals offline.

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) imposed the global ground stop for airlines including United, Delta, American, and Frontier.

    Flights grounded in the US.

  • Macron wins shock vote to keep coalition hopes alive
  • And extremists are just extremists at the end of the day.

    Deciding that you're too good for centrists is the same thing as deciding that you never want to accomplish anything politically. You're all talk and no practice.
