Re: Chicken gun

That's the one.

When I first heard it, it was a British team firing a frozen chicken at a train.

Chicken gun

Ahaha you fell for the chicken gun story. One of the oldest urban legends on the internet.

The nationality, company, target, and payload differ between variations of the legend.

I literally have no idea what any of this means.

And yet can tell you with certainty, this is why you'll spend millions of dollars and still get hacked.

AWS

The marketing overload surrounding "cloud" products is so offputting.

First AWS is a bland generic acronym, not a brand I instantly recognise.

Then which product do I want? Aurora, Glue, Greengrass, Beanstalk, Lambda, Route 53, CloudFront, CloudWatch, Buckets, Dynamo, Elasticache, Redshift, Lumberyard, Chime.

Seriously, what the fuck is any of this stuff.

Re: Australian encryption is easily crcked

No wonder Australian encryption is weak. They're still using SHA-0 which can be broken using a boomerang attack.

Speaking in Tech: What is a Windows 10 licence worth these days?

massivelySerial
Silver badge

Re: Windows 10 Licence Worth?

A Windows 10 licence has negative value. Microsoft should be paying you for all your personal data.

Do I bookmark? That's a combination of yes and no.

Yes because I don't trust social sites with yet more personal data. No because the social sites have destroyed the web so there's nothing left to bookmark.

Thou shalt indent to three, no more, no less.

Three shall be the number thou shalt indent, and the number of the indenting shall be three.

Four shalt thou not indent, neither indent thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three.

Five is right out.

Then K&R coders, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.

Re: Nope Nope Nope

I would.

However I'm waiting for someone to integrate VDSL drivers (lantiq open source) with OpenWRT / LEDE.

Hacking on a device that can only be unbricked by soldering a serial interface is a bit more fannying around than I can be bothered with, so I'll wait for an aussie to do it.
