RIP John Glenn: First American in orbit – and later, the oldest, too

This small blue dot.

Has just decreased it's albedo a bunch.

I wasn't about for Mercury, or rather wasn't at that point aware enough to pay attention. I watched (and remember watching) several of the Apollo missions. I watched shuttle launches religiously, and still pay fairly close attention to what gets kicked up there.

There are few that hold a candle to the grace and serenity that was John Glenn. I met him once and didn't even realize who it was (until a relative told me who I'd been chatting at).

Damn you 2016.

Re: Go ahead

I find pidgin(with sipe) works just fine for me. The whiteboarding crap in lync just plain does not work in a properly secured environment. Desktop sharing in lync works, but it really doesn't suit my requirements.

Other than the fact that having Lync and Outlook365 running on a windows system eventually chews up every last scrap of ram and then some, eventually hanging windows, I don't see an advantage to S4B.

initial thought

Was teething infant, squalling.

Oddly, that works laterally to get Trump. (never held office, thus teething, finding out that the crowd that has tagged along with him gets to keep status quo, thus the squalling)

Personally, for sweet, I prefer Shepards. Bell Peppers over here tend to be hothouse grown and have almost no flavour. A nice Cali Reaper and you have something that will make your veggie chilli stand up and bark.

Whiffy kitchen after last night's chips? Clear the air with SPACE PLASMA

"Big noisy fans"

Those things are not just there for 'the smell' in a commercial kitchen.

And I can tell you - there isn't a chef/cook/kitchen worker alive that is going to let you remove those big noisy fans from their kitchen. Kitchen is nicer place than sauna, especially when you're slaving over someone else's food. And I'm kinda certain that the H&S folks don't want them sweating into your plate.

That said, I'll agree that if you get the plasma temp wrong by only a few degrees you're doing more damage than good by not breaking that molecule out correctly, and leaving nasty things in the air. Most kitchens are *gas* fired. The fat in the fryer may well be nothing to sweat over once you have the gas off the (propane/natural gas/etc) combustion in the mix.

Re: Yet another example

Phil:

Stats on this side of the pond are thin on Ex in specific, but, at least for what there is, *legally prescribed* Oxycodone kills more people than Ex. That may have more to do with lazy doctors than anything else tho.

Not, of course that Canadian stats have bugger all to do with New Zealand or Australia, the point is quite simply that the "War On Drugs" has been done *wrong* from the beginning. So folks that run around under that banner need to open their eyes and stop using selective statistics for guidance.

In reality, sitting over here, if a criminal record is going to be an issue for an employer, it is *the employers* responsibility to have the appropriate forms filled out and submitted, and the *future* employee normally has to sign off on this (in some cases must acquire the record check themselves and hand it in). Given that, if the question is not asked prior to employment *commencing* an employer cannot fire you for not telling them you have a record.

Quite simply, logic dictates this:

If a criminal record is an issue in a field of employment, one cannot offer someone a position until such time as it has been determined that there is no criminal record.

If a criminal record is NOT an issue in a field of employment, discovery of one after the offer was made is irrelevant to the situation.

Mind you, who the hell ever said that contract IT was logical?

storage of IT equipment.

Functional or not as the case may be.

Most of the IT equipment I deal with lives in proper DC space.

Every once in a while something in a network/comms closet gets thrown my way.

Things I've found in said network/comms closets in my travels:

Bicycles (one closet had four. One of which was in numerous parts, including what looked like having had part of the frame cut using a hacksaw, the metal shavings from said operation still lying on the 'raised floor' tiles in the room)

Old TVs/Display panels (usually stood up long ways against the backs of the cabinets.)

Bundles of fibreglass insulation, pink, yellow and green. In one case, neatly taped into packs of three slabs, and stacked in the space between the back of the racks and the wall. Tightly packed of course.

Cases of empty beer bottles. (in that one, 248 two-fours, stacked against the aircon unit, blocking airflow *into* the unit ....)

dead PCs. from a cleanout of a callcenter as far as i could tell. I made it to 150 before I stopped counting.

Broken toilets (just sitting in the middle of the room, chunks of shattered ceramic)

Unused desks, unused chairs. A very large, sloppily decorated plywood box. As far as I could tell it was a magicians "cut someone in half" box.

An 8 cylinder diesel engine, and I'm guessing the clutch to match it.

7 years worth of tax filing documents for a subsidiary of a company that my company bought. Each year was in a several file folders. The file folders were laid flat in a rack, and stacked on top of one another. It appeared that the computer rack was dedicated file storage. (there's a joke in there somewhere)

4 (4'x4'x4') cardboard boxes full of nothing but those stupid styrofoam peanuts.

Once, an old old OLD freezer. Locked. Rusty. most definitely was NOT empty.

in one case in excess of 80 bottles of photography chemicals, loosely arrayed on shelves in a rack over the PDUs that fed the equipment in the next 2 racks.

I try not to go to weird locations to recover hardware any more. It has left me with various nightmares.

Oh- and the birds nest. There were eggs in it. It was rather dusty so I doubt that the eggs were likely to hatch, but it also made me wonder where the parent(s) were.

IETF plants privacy test inside DNS

Alistair
Silver badge
Black Helicopters

@MNGrrl -

"- DNS lookups are not encrypted -- even if you are using a VPN, they typically are sent in the clear over the 'default' routing rule. Thus, what you're looking for from within the VPN is leaked over clear channel."

This somewhat depends on *what sort* of VPN you're using and how it is configured. This functionality is how some of the 'netflix/hulu' vpn's actually function.

In quite a few cases, the 'open internet vpn' providers *do not* reroute the DNS traffic through the tunnel, but override the default resolver. The queries may still go out over the untunnelled path, but they end up going to some other dns server, the overall affect of this depends on where the pervasive monitoring is being done.

What this *can* do for you is handle local resolver requests, wrapping them in TLS and sending them to one of 4 "privacy servers". What this can do for you if your skillset were sufficient is provide you with a local DNS stub on your local network, wrapping all local queries similarly. On the local wire, your queries would still be readable. But between the stub and the 'privacy server' they would indeed be encrypted.

Once more, this depends on overall configuration of the systems on the network and what one wishes to accomplish.

Great Gaping Hole at the moment is that there are only 4 of these 'privacy' servers. Far far far too easy to compromise that.. even without handling the servers themselves - one could watch both ends of their connections - TLS in -> UDP out to the root servers perhaps? I'm sure that someone could come up with correlative data. In any case, it is a *very* small step forward of sorts. And forward we should be going.

It all depends on how much tinfoil one wishes to wrap around one's hat.

(since we don't have a tinfoil hat icon)

stubby.

Brings to mind old fashioned beer bottles up here at least, likely down south of the (soon to be built) wall as well.

DNS resolver logs make interesting reading for TLAs. NAT is one thing, but is only partially sufficient to mask the paths your browser travels. TLAs have access to your ISP's logs, and assuming that DNS over UDP is cleartext, they can pin bows on the IP connections.

Over here in the 'western' world it means very little to most of us that the TLA's and such can put all this together. At least at this moment. There are places where this sort of collation of information is already a threat to one's continued ability to walk about town and enjoy sunshine. At some point, cat videos will become the equivalent of porn.

Nice to see some work being done on these fronts. I'm sure they will put down the latencies and efficiencies so that those who need to can make the call if its 'worth doing'. Because, there will always be that moment, for someone, when it will be worth doing.

Bell just came by and lied to me again about getting 'upgraded fibre' connection. Since we still have UTP or BNC, and all of the local services are subterranean I'd like to know when they dug up the service tunnel around the crescent. They've run an additional link to the neighbourhood node, providing additional node to network bandwidth, but .. )cough( it still runs over copper from the node to the drop block and UTP from the drop block to the house.

initramfs (or initrd as the case may be)

Really, the only *issue* here is that they can copy the encrypted volumes or *possibly* install a keylogger. In any case, one has to have one's hands on the hardware (or VM control surface), and one has to have a tailored piece of software to install on the machine. -> at this stage one would be installing a kernel module to shanghai the keyboard input, thus "tailored".

Many distro's are getting into the habit of *not* mounting /boot during runtime unless called for (updating the kernel, rebuilding initramfs or initrd) to avoid having stuff dropped in there that does not belong due to drive by or 'stupid user issues'.

Systems on the DC floor? If you've made it to the console level or have your hands on the hardware, the game is already over.

Not so much a "massive security bug" as it is an "oh, crap, forgot to take that line I put in just in case out".

Kotkin: Why Trump won

Alistair
Silver badge
Coat

Times, they are a changin'

FD: Canadian. Born in Mass. Decided, when things were what they were in 75, that it was not a good thing to be a geeky, awkward teenager with a US passport visiting relatives in the US.

@J.RH -> yes, yes you do, in general.

Trump. How the Hell did they elect trump?.

There's lots going around about Bigotry, Hate, Misogyny, White Male, etc.

Kotkin's got the right idea. What is stunning is that no one has noted just *who* has been stuck to his side all the way through.

Trump is for "Change".

Hillary is for "More of the Same".

I seriously seriously doubt that the vast majority of Hillary voters voted because she going to continue the oligarchic evolution that has been happening in the US for the last 40 years.

I seriously seriously doubt that the vast majority of the Trump voters voted because he is going to run around grabbing pussies and shooting Muslims and kicking Mexican landscapers out of the country.

What happened here was that Hillary represented "more of the same" and Trump represented "change".

What change? - for some: kick those wimmins rights actinazis in the nuts

for some: kick those black lives matter twats off our streets.

for some: lock them furriner terrists up before they bomb my walmart

for some: drop that trade deal that will cost me my job.

But - -the HUGE majority on the street, just want the overall political entity that owns the US -> From the breakfast table to the 4 pillars to be changed.

Not all Trump voters are misogynistic, racist, religious nuts, even if *some* of them are. Most of them are just tax payers who've watched things from the late 80's devolve in the excited snakes and honestly believed that Trump could do something. ANYTHING to change the course the country was on.

Well. I'm quite sure things will change. They always do. Not sure if *any* of us are ready for the ride. But it will happen.

Just a suggestion in my view. If you have any debt anywhere, pay it off. now.

McDonald's sues Italian city for $20m after being burger-blocked

Alistair
Silver badge

Mc'Ds sues ....

... I rather believe its also not the first time they've gone after a municipality about things like this.

I'll note that I'm a Canuck, its not utterly relevant, but it applies later.

a) I find that McD's food serves a purpose, usually after I've not been able to poop for three or four days. Puts a smile on the youngest's face that we get McD's and puts a smile on my face an hour or so later.

b) Corporations have been dying for the ability to take over the entire process, from birth to death, step by step, meal by meal for the last 35 years. Possibly MUCH longer. If you owe them from the moment you're born to the moment you die, you are an asset on the ledger books, and are thus improving their stock value. McD's is likely suing not because they cannot sell, but rather that they cannot put a 3 star location on the books. It would not matter to them, considering that the piazza in question is a tourist zone, with great commercial exposure and a prime property, if the location lost money hand over fist. Its a corporate asset in and of itself.

c) Good on the council for standing up and saying no. I hope to hell they have lawyers with the same determination. Litter, the smell, the seagulls (and I know that pigeons go there too, but the seagulls LOVE McDs' and will assault even large children going for those fries, the pigeons would be gone in a week)

d) Banff actually has some fairly tight restrictions already encoded into local bylaws, as well as the federal park protection laws that exist. The local council is fine so long as they pay their taxes, and follow..... local law. *cough*

e) I've not had much occasion of late to travel, but that is one Italian location I will be going to when I get over there. Being that I'll be in a foreign location, I'll very likely not have any issues with constipation. I'm fine with there only being 6 locations in the town, not actually in the centrepiece

Apparently the Trump voters took the day off work to vote, and have had much free time to post.

DACs

Yes, easier to plug and play. This is a major advantage in some cases.

I'll allow your 4 servers in a back office around the corner, plugging into a switch under the secretary's desk . *grin*

Put 38 servers in a rack and dual path connect them to the top of rack switches.

a) you need the wider racks just for the cables. Trust me I have thermal sensor maps that prove that.

b) you need cable management at the servers, and at the top of rack switches. In some cases you may want to have slot bars on the walls of the rack.

c) you need to keep the *substantial* difference in weight in mind after the 3rd or 4th rack.

d) when DACs *do* go south you need specialized testing tools. Which apparently even our 3rd level vendor support folks don't have.

Where they've most definitely provided simplification on one level, they *can* require more complex preparation, and they absolutely require changes in the planning, prep and implementation stages.

I've basically had a bad set of experiences with DACs, bad planning, and really tight overloaded racks. Mind you we've also *never* had a bad fibre cable recover after being "cleaned" at all ends. Thus I may just be a cranky old bastard letting my experiences colour my perspectives.
