      It is the Monday after Glasto

      And there are still a few sore heads around. The music was great but J.C. on the pyramid stage? Can't we forget politics for a couple of days...? Please? The real world is up shit street so an event like Glasto is a chance for us plebs to get pissed/stoned, listen to some good music and forget the mess we have to go back to today.

        And yet pop music is full of politics, from the clearly labelled Rage Against the Machine and Public Enemy, to Hendrix, Marley, Future Sound of London. But yeah, adversarial political talk in pubs bore me, I just feel that 'Tories are bastatds / Labour are muppets' to be unproductive and getting in the way of more interesting chats about where we, as a society, nation, planet go in the future.

        That said, could there be a trade? If Corbyn spoke on the Pyramid Stage, could we have The Prodigy play in the House of Commons?

        If Glastonbury is your only means of escapism then I feel bad for you son. I've got 99 problems but the Prime Minister in waiting appearing on the Pyramid stage isn't one.

    Now, Kanye West 'headlining' the Pyramid Stage with two hours of Autotune karioke was atrocious. At least JC was in keeping with the ethos of many of the Glastonbury staff and organisers.

      I genuinely don't know if I should downvote for that, or upvote for pointing out the obvious about Kayne.

      Thank ye ghods for good music.

    The base product looks like the old IBM/Lenovo Secure HDD, which I've used for quite a few years. Nice to see someone picking the product up and running with it, though the prices are a bit on the high side.

    Users can pre-program the diskAshur drives with a unique Self Destruct PIN which, once entered, instantly deletes the encryption key rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever.

    How long before an MP calls for this to be banned?

    "Bad person" gets arrested, "law enforcement" request access to data on disk, "bad person" has ability to instantly wipe disk by supplying the self destruct PIN. "bad person" can't be accused of not supplying the "password", who can prove they gave the wrong pin deliberately or by accident under duress, and there's now no available incriminating data.

    It was handy back in the day (and also very expensive) when Macs used AFP, but things move on.. like using a capital Z at the end of a product name.. (its not 1990 anymore more)

    macOS is SMB3 by default... supports DFS out the box..

    Next you'll be telling us about ADmit-Mac .../shudder/

    As always.. Keep it simple (stupid)
