"I can't say that partman was a failure...Anything that deletes that many #Windows partitions is a success."

"(although with a few hundred more lines of code, #propellor is d-i 2.0)"

It's 2004 and I'm in Oldenburg DE, working on the Debian Installer. Colin and I pair program on partman, its new partitioner, to get it into shape. We've somewhat reluctantly decided to use it. Partman is in some ways a beautful piece of work, a mass of semi-object-oriented, super extensible ...

My new #security tool:

Just need some #malachite and a power source like the example in the video.
Good news everyone! There's an unusual way of stopping malware that (chances are) you're not already doing.

"How the Soviets bugged typewriters in the US Embassy from 1976 through 1984.

This is an amazing story, and I also love that one of the players in this drama is named "Bob Surprise".

    The typewriter bugs marked a new level of sophistication because they were electromechanical. For the first time, the Soviets gathered information from a piece of equipment that held written plain text information. Prior to the discovery of these bugs, the U.S. believed that the Russians had only used room audio bugs with micro- phones or listening devices to eavesdrop on American embassy activities. [...]"

Mars Moon Phobos: View 1 | NASA Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter
Phobos is the larger of the two heavily-cratered Martian moons and is dominated by three large craters. The largest of Phobos' craters, Stickney, was named after the wife of Asaph Hall, the astronomer who discovered the moons of Mars. Stickney crater is 10 km in diameter, which is almost half of the average diameter of Phobos! The crater is so large relative to the size of Phobos that the satellite probably came close to breaking up. Radiating away from Stickney are sets of parallel grooves or striations. These fractures undoubtedly formed as a result of the impact that produced Stickney.

Another interesting feature about Phobos is the duration of its orbit. Phobos revolves around Mars at an astounding rate. In fact, it revolves around Mars 3 times during one Martian day! As a result, Phobos appears to rise in the west, and set in the east!

The illuminated part of Phobos visible in this image is about 21 km across. The most prominent feature in the images is the large impact crater Stickney, in the lower right. A series of grooves and crater chains is obvious on the other parts of the moon.

Since commonwealth funding supports state schools, religious education in those schools breaches section 116 of the constitution.

Organizations are often run according to “the superchicken model,” where the value is placed on star employees who outperform others. And yet, this isn’t what drives the most high-achieving teams. Business leader Margaret Heffernan observes that it is social cohesion — built every coffee break, every time one team member asks another for help — that leads over time to great results. It's a radical rethink of what drives us to do our best work, an...

Most impressive how "heat wave" correlates with global temperature though, and how long the literature took to come up with a recognisable standard phrase.
