This is perfectly on topic, but lets put it into offtopic section.

With people mentioning Meltdown/Spectre in the ping/lag posts, I highly recommend reading up on what Cory has to say on the war on general purpose computing:

Not sure if this will work either but it’s not April already is it?

Thats link for the 1st one and it is fighting against government surveillance using the “new smart rectal thermometer” - WTH is that a thing?  Actually no don’t answer that, I always thought the IoT was sh*te and that just confirms it!  I had to stop reading at that point as I thought I might rupture something laughing.

Glad I got that tin foil hat for Christmas. ;)

TinFoil Army!  TinFoil Army!

 

Seriously though, the 1st article is very interesting, thanks for posting!

thanks for the laughs with the 2nd one too :)

Hopefully this version of the 2nd one works...

 

Is interesting, I admit I hadn’t really given much thought on the negative uses of DRM type tech. as I do strongly believe that producers of content are free to monetise or not their IP and protect it from theft but it is obvious really that can and will be misused :facepalm:
