Re: CAPTCHAs Cracked

Yeah, I'm finding most CAPTCHAs are a pain and worthless. For crying out loud, how many times do I have to pick cars out of a grid of pics? For the same stinking site? The text ones are impossible to read, so even humans can't get through. I don't use a CAPTCHA on my web site. I don't have accounts ...

Re: Music Festival UK - our first, and it SOLD OUT

I looked up the venue. How can you be sold out. Just spill the festival out over the farmland in the area. ;-)

It will still let me buy a ticket.

Yep. Brian is the best. One hell of an investigator, too.

Another Facebook Fail

This is getting to be a habit for FB. Check your accounts, change your passwords. Consider dropping FB all together.

Re: What books are you reading?

Currently reading (and about done) Drone Fall, by A.L. Buehrer. I think this is still looking for a publisher. Interesting concept. Drones watch over everything. An underground effort is doing "drone sniping." Then they stumble on "Human Ambassadors."

Might watch for it.

Re: LOVELY weather

Oh, I know, Opus. I did OCS at Benning in the summer. 95+ and 95% humidity. Didn't know the difference when I got out of the shower.

Re: LOVELY weather

Well, it cleared off today and we're going to have 90's the rest of the week. Now, that's what summer is supposed to be!

FPU security flaws in Intel CPUs

Here's a rundown of the LazyFP security issues in Intel processors. The interesting aspect is that the flaw exposes access to internal structures, such as cryptographic keys. Hmmm ... Do you suppose this is how the US FBI plans to get a back door? https://appleinsider.com/articles/18/06/14/first-det...

Re: Getting the band back together ..............

Well, I'm still in touch with Paul in Scotland, but don't know if he is interested in getting back here. Don't remember his handle here. A lot happened in his life.
