I've... exploited 0days you programmers wouldn't believe.

ROP shellcode on non-executable memory ran as the machine of Turing.
I watched Offset2lib pwns ASLR near the stack of kernel space.

All those bugs won't be fixed in time, like

@rick_777 @niconiconi The manual for my Amiga 500 is similar. :bloblul:

By contrast, the most recent thing I've bought that did have something like that was a cheap-crap screwdriver from B&M a year or two ago, and that actually surprised me. :blobastonished:

This 2008 Hitachi just stopped spinning after 27,000 hours of faithful service.

And mom said today she got a "SATA port enabled" message and it came back to life again?! I checked S.M.A.R.T and it was nothing wrong, probably thermal protection (you can cook eggs on the HTPC during summer if Windows Update is running :doge: ). but better be safe and dump everything.

Meanwhile, all my Seagate at home are long dead... Unfortunately, Western Digital acquired Hitachi HDDs, later killed HGST. Duopoly time.

@niconiconi 大概是覺得能/會給Linux內核提交補丁的人就是高端人才了。順帶一提我還試過收到招聘Java Developer 的廣告,但我會的是Javascript (.....)

The service manuals of old professional equipment are truly amazing, the schematics are shown in three different abstraction levels, every single connection is shown, waveforms at 100 different test points are drawn, every single component is listed, with step-by-step test and calibration guidelines. You can almost remove everything from the board and put it back together with a service manual.

Something that today's consumers can only dream of...

Our Telegram bot just said the following:

Stop using mtproto now!

🤣 🤣 🤣

In addition to those GitHub spammers, another bunch of stupid Chinese companies are scanning "git log" of torvalds/linux.git, days and nights. You got a patch merged into the mainline by Greg K.H, and you have a Chinese sign-off name?

Congrats! You'll get automated spams immediately: We offers top job opportunities for experts like you (lol, I don't even believe myself is one), blabla.

EVERY SINGLE TIME. 😡

Let's Encrypt's ECDSA root certificate is postponed AGAIN?! :oh_no: I've already been waiting for 2 years...

github.com/letsencrypt/website

It wouldn't provide much security benefits, but making the certificate chain fits within fewer TCP packets would speedup the handshake dramatically.

The game, just like other city builder games, requires the player to manage power and water for the city. Power plants produce electricity and require both clean water and sewage. Water towers provide clean water, sewage pipes get rid of waste — both of these require electricity. This sort of duality between sewage and water towers allows the construction of AND as well as OR gates.
