Re: I'm not an expert but I'm thinking "Not a chance."
Jason seems to be overly cautious, I've been running it on my Ubiquity ER-X and Android phone and this thing rocks. In terms of speed and stability, it leaves OpenVPN and the likes far behind.
What stands out most: enabling it doesn't involve any connection at all, zero battery drain. But when it notices you try to reach the configured network, it will pack your packets and send them off.
Since both Linus and Greg are a big fan of WireGuard, chances that it gets merged are the full 100%
Re: sustainable, clean energy
Neither are solar and wind, because after 20+ years you need to replace the infrastructure. I'd bet the junk this creates has a higher volume than nuclear waste ;)
FWIW, the vulnerability used on QNAP devices was fixed more than a year ago. And by default it nags about a new firmware when you log in.
This isn't a patent of an idea, its a patent of a solution or system to solve the problem.
I don't think this files under the typical US obvious patents.
Re: |matrix| ?
I thought it was a fork of |Matrix| ?
Re: 6 Warnings to keep your hands on the wheel
It already does. If it thinks you're not keeping the hands on the wheel, it disables autopilot and the car must come to a complete stop before it can be enabled again.
Re: Don't call it Autopilot, for a start
Don't start that discussion again, for a start.
We've been here before, including the analogy with what the autopilot on a plane does...
I am, however, interested in hearing why the anti-collision didn't do its work...
Re: Debian SID
We are both right, you know... LTS is based on Testing, the other releases are based on Unstable (SID)
If you know what Ubuntu is based on, there's really no surprise...
yeah, they're getting good at it, with no decrease in production of it ever since they decided to shut down nuclear
Re: Not sure about Office?
Yes, MS is upping the marketing effort...
They are also doing a Wordperfect tactic here, with some bizarre deal that gives all kids of all the schools in my city(*) an Office365 account, all homework and communication is done on it so no escape for the brainwashing of the kids.
Only years before we had managed to move the school of my kids to linux, everybody happy, and then this move came in from above.

I see what you did there

Re: I'm confused
This is in fact not true, but most cases of soft enforcement do not go through courts and lawyers and certainly don't make the news
Re: IoT ... HA HA HA HA
Espressif already has a firmware out with fixes, so IoT using ESP chips can be upgraded (mine will).
I hope they pick [Matrix] - works well already
An under-run bumper would have shown up as 'not an empty space' so it very much would have saved his life, it would have triggered emergency braking
P4 would have been better for heating
Re: Well... you get what you pay for...
indeed, the problem isn't free or paying, but closed or open.
If you can't export your data, you're screwed
Re: How many are from India?
Most of the EU has identical skills gaps so no...
It installed a 'patched' version of the latest firmware containing malware, so the hole is not in 4.2.5, it was fixed in that version.
The malware creators installed their 4.2.5 infected version so users would think they are OK and the system would not see any need to update.
Re: Malware discovered on QTS devices
If you expose its WWW side to the net...
The hole was in their Photo Station app, which has a web interface. That's where they got in.
The malware was a bitcoin miner (AFAIK, maybe there were others?), and they have a malware remover app that they update whenever they know about nasties targeting their NAS models.
The hole seems to have been in the Photo Station app, so upgrade that one ASAP!

AC is confusing North Pole of the Moon with that of the Earth ;)
headphones that do not drown out the environment
That's exactly why I bought the backbeat 903 years ago: it delivers the music but doesn't block the environment much.
It's the only safe way to use headphones in traffic
@S4qFBxkFFg what a wrong comparison... when you use the foreign SIM you're not actually using something you bought there, you're using the cell towers build by the operators in your country, and you expect they will give that usage for free?
Who's shit-brained here?
Re: All of the above notwithstanding, it's a bit hard to understand use of rm -rf ...
ctrl-a and then shift-delete
bonus: on windows it would have taken ages to delete 300GB
Now I'm wondering why my Squeezeboxes have been playing so well for the past many years
I never new they were impossible to work so well, I guess I will need this new technology to fix this problem I don't have
The big difference is that Obama was seriously blocked by missing a majority elsewhere. Trump will be able to go ahead without blocks.
Re: When did Linux start becoming like Windows?
That's a bit cheap and easy, not? Blaming kernel and *NIX tool bugs on systemd...
I had no trouble at all getting good and fast support from UBNT, much better than other vendors.
Will buy again, regardless of your personal vendetta
Re: Think I've found the problem....
You mean like how Philips did with their photo frames? Since all their MAC addresses were sequential popping them all in a row was easy (and done)...
indeed, the attack will include fallback to 2G so how long before 2G is removed completely?
3 easy rules I use
Since there is some IoT stuff I want to use but don't trust, I use three rules when connecting them up:
1) separate VLAN: they all go on a wifi that uses a separate VLAN, and the firewall allows access from my main network to the VLAN but not the other way around.
2) whitelisting: access from the network to the internet is blocked by default, only whitelisted devices are allowed. Guess what, none of the IoT are on it (in fact the VLAN is just blocked anyway)
3) reverse proxy: for stuff I do want to access for convenience, I set up a reverse proxy on the webserver.
I pity the poor consumer who has no network knowledge and buys some internet connected crap....
Don't step in an airbus then. Or in several modern cars.
Drive/fly by wire is not new, you know?
What is happening here, however, is just plain bad design. Having a critical system with single point of failure. <- period there
Assuming you didn't copy your joke from http://xkcd.com/1740/ ...
Re: But why're they all so small?
And then there are M.2 modules that talk SATA and others that talk PCIe, so make sure you check what both sides are capable of.
Re: Samsung drives?
While meant as a joke, your comment is actually not far from reality.
Just scrap Samsung and flames, but these M.2 modules do get hot and cooling them is not always that easy.
Re: No news...
So... actually making my point and still downvoting...
I can use Hangouts on multiple devices, so I don't see why Allo is any worse.
Still need to check how the whatsapp desktop API does it. Wouldn't surprise me if they knew the key too.
In fact, most chat systems have encryption to the server - Signal being the odd one out
Why single out Allo?
Any chat system that allows to operate on multiple devices (in sync, with history) is storing the data on a server....
Re: Down for the count
"First find your infinitely long wire. Then find another."
nah, just cut the first infinitely long wire you found in two
Eh no, I was refering to the massive hot water storage tanks in Reykjavik, called.... Perlan
phew... for a moment I thought they were going to launch a few massive hot water tanks into space
and to help fix it
If focus is on routing and destinations, maybe they should have re-branded to THERE
Re: Getting Distracted
Why should one exclude the other?
I think all the extra's come from the fact that it can be done on the platform.
Re: What a stupid fucking statistic
Your argument makes absolutely no sense.
If you have seen any video on how users are using AutoPilot, you would see that it is being used a lot in circumstances Tesla does not condemn. Maybe get informed before blurting out your venom.
I find it amazing how little accidents have happened *despite* how users use it, far away from the easy, safe highway with simple lanes, etc...
That said, Tesla should invest even more time and energy in informing the users on the limits of the system since there are plenty of daredevils who want to find the outer edge of its limitations...
