Perhaps the Aussies could take a few tips from New Zealand?

its most famous memento of the Norman conquest of England
Napoleon put the tapestry on display in Paris in 1804, while he was planning an invasion of England.
it has not yet been decided where in the UK the tapestry will be displayed
Somewhere close to Trafalgar Square or Waterloo Station?
Highway lanes expand and contract automatically for high-traffic times," dreams John Jones, Fjord's VP of design strategy.
Just like the A38M.
BTW, I worked on the requirements specification for the tidal flow signalling back in the early '90s
could stuff Cloudflare in front and tick the "always on" option.
LKML did, and does, have a Cloudflare front end, but since the site is so dynamic, the "always on" option wouldn't be much help.
Would it have been as stable on a cloud provider?
It is on Cloudflare. It was just the back end that went down, but since the mailing list has very little static content, that took the whole site down.
There is, however a case on AMD when eBPF JIT is turned on, which allows userspace to read kernel memory.
AMD doesn't have PCID.
IBM have announced that firmware and kernel patches for their POWER architecture are will be released soon.

x86/mm/pti: Disable global pages if PAGE_TABLE_ISOLATION=y
Global pages stay in the TLB across context switches. Since all contexts share the same kernel mapping, these mappings are marked as global pages so kernel entries in the TLB are not flushed out on a context switch.
But, even having these entries in the TLB opens up something that an attacker can use, such as the double-page-fault attack

Ed Foudil, a web developer and security researcher, has submitted a draft to the IETF — Internet Engineering Task Force — seeking the standardization of security.txt, a file that webmasters can host on their domain root and describe the site's security policies.
Vessels sunk before 1945 are particularly valuable, since there is no fallout from nuclear bombs in their steel, so they can be used for shielding radiation detectors.
Lead is slightly different - an ingot's natural radioactivity will have decayed to insignificant levels since Roman times.
It's Christmas and work is quieting down, so for a true "Boy's Own" story of one of AE1's sister boats, on which one of my distant cousins was the navigator, read about the E11's adventures in the Sea of Marmara.
A VC for Captain Naismith, and DSCs and DSMs for the crew.
The original quote is by Tanenbaum: "Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway".
+1 any way for beating me to it.
Were they the ones with two bars that formed a touch switch to turn them on? With a rechargeable battery to power that circuit?
Some useful advice on hardening ssh, from 2 and a half years ago:
And a program to test an ssh server:

when I was in Southampton installing a very early automatic line following map digitising system, I remember being told that aerial photos weren't sufficiently accurate - it's the house walls that go on the map, not any overhanging eaves.

In an adversarial situation – a court hearing, a job interview ...
In the quiet of the late shift last night, having a long chat with one of the apprentices, starting with the difference between section 1, 2 and 3 man pages, we eventually wandered on to to exactly this, and I showed him Doctor Fun's still relevant cartoon from all those years ago.
Mind you, I had to explain what Usenet is too, also the history of the ARM processor (Tim and I were porting GST's 1st Word+ onto Arthur for the launch of the Archimedes exactly 30 years ago).
Rosenkranz works for Orrick? Alas, no Guildenstern though.
In the 80's I used to get confused between Martlesham and the then New Scientist / Bill Tidy comic strip "Grimbledon Down". My friend who then worked there researching surface physics would get quite upset if I referred to it as "Martlesham Down"
So is this a different breach to the one they disclosed on September 15th?
several hundred gallons of black paint or alternatively several thousand Spın̈al Tap album covers.
ISTR part of the plot of a Neal Stephenson novel - one in the "System of the World" series, involved partially filled flasks of mercury on a galleon causing it to resonate, roll and sink.
Now why does that sound familiar?
Hmm. Should I go and submit an Ingress portal for the top of Malham Cove?
Opps - sorry - typo - should have been 1977.
The early 1900 series computers had (possibly germanium) transistor memory and nil cores, and they were obsolete by the mid to late 70s (despite the ravings of people who used them).
In 1987 Computer Weekly ran a "Win-A-Computer" competition for schools. The entry I was involved in didn't come first, but as a "consolation" prize, an (IIRC) bakery company who was disposing of their ICT 1902T offered it to our school. It was the time of my "A" levels (the award ceremony was the day of my Physics exam), so I never saw it arrive at the start of the next term, but my brother did. It was never got to work properly, and when my brother left he took the core store box with him. It's now with The National Museum of Computing.
Did they reallyl have ferrite core stores?
Some of them did. I can't remember which model they had - the one back at our office was an 11/45. WIkipedia confirms that the '45 could have core.
I was visiting a government establishment that had problems with its PDP-11 (yes, that long ago).
It was the sort of place where they had two different colours of line printer paper - one for secure state, and one for when they had visitors, and all the secure printout had to be locked away before we were allowed in.
We read in the memory diagnostics paper tape and ran it. It was unclear whether it was a memory board problem or the backplane, so we turned the computer off, unplugged the memory board, moved it to a different slot, turned the computer back on, toggled in the load address on the front panel and ran the diagnostics again. At this point one of the locals asked why we hadn't re-loaded the paper tape. "It's core store" we answered "non volatile". At which point panic took hold. "You mean that the top secret contents of memory don't get lost when we power off?"
We went away with after giving them the instruction that could be toggled in to wipe memory ("MOV -(PC) -(PC)" IIRC) and leaving them to re-write their procedures without making it too obvious that they had previously had a gaping hole in them.
209 CVEs have appeared in the RSS feed overnight. Oh well. Back to work.
Yesterday one of my cow-orkers was running vimdiff inside screen over ssh when it "hung". I went over, first tried ^L (as you do), but that didn't help. ^Q did, however. I then had to explain XON / XOFF. Coincidentally I'm just reading ESR's Things Every Hacker Once Knew.
It's not quite as simple as that. At one place from which I connect to my VPN, packet loss on the VPN at peak times is far greater than packet loss going directly. Seems to be some sort of deep packet inspection attempting to throttle torrents / Tor / streaming, but it makes trying to read my e-mail when I can't get into work because of the recent train strikes almost impossible.
It would be easy for an ISP to whitelist bandwidth measurement services and claim that everything is fine, whilst still providing a very poor service.
Years ago the ICO were absolutely useless - reports of abuse disappeared into a black hole.
These days, they want to give the impression that they are trying harder. They are at Glasgow Central Station today giving advice on Nuisance Calls.
