  1. I guess the "D" in D34 stands for Dalek?
  2. With the current disarray in the DNC, the Powers That Be may have decided to sacrifice Harris while the Party resets and starts working on the talent pool for 2028.
  3. That wasn't Joe Biden writing. He didn't call Trump a fascist or threat to democracy even once in that letter. On a serious note, connecting the dots on the criminally inadequate USSS protection provided to Trump leads all the way to Jill. Jill surely has been enjoying the fruits of Hunter's and Joe's influence peddling, but obviously she is not up for being grilled by House Republicans concerning the Secret Service.
  4. Amusingly, this nonsense would have been picked up with less than an hour of testing. Numerous lessons to be re-learned, though they won't be. One thing that I haven't seen mentioned clearly, is that from a change management viewpoint, the closer you get to Ring 0, the bigger the blast radius.
  5. Crowdstrike is an equal-opportunity Breaker Of Systems; https://www.neowin.net/news/crowdstrike-broke-debian-and-rocky-linux-months-ago-but-no-one-noticed/

  7. No bombshells, as Fauci was as careful with electronic communications as any other criminal; https://www.bloomberg.com/news/newsletters/2024-06-21/read-dr-fauci-s-covid-pandemic-text-messages Here's the actual story; NIAID is staffed by liars, plain and simple.

  9. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2024/07/19/illinois-deputy-charged-sonya-massey/ . There have been enough of these situations now. IMHO, if an officer turns the bodycam off, it needs to be grounds for immediate termination and maybe a TRO so that they can be disarmed.
  10. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2024/07/20/trump-secret-service-security-attempted-assassination/ Isn't this an example of what the left wing now calls "mal-information?" Note again the outsourcing of security to small municipal/county LE organizations. Problem is, those city/county LEOs are overtasked just with traffic control and similar activities, and usually don't have the budget for world-class counter-sniper and bomb detection work. It is now clear to me that this is a mechanism for both encouraging assassins and shifting blame to the locals.
  11. This situation does illustrate the cluelessness of younger generations. The way history is taught these days certainly results in some awful behaviors.

  19. I've never messed with any CrowdStrike product or worked where they are used. That said, my gut impression is that, like most big software houses, they are a marketing firm with a coding hobby. The fact that they are seemingly in bed with the DNC does not do wonders for their credibility. I have read a couple of articles on their website talking about IT security issues, they do have some credible talent.
