 "Each watch is constructed on a 20-meter-long assembly line in a clean-room environment, then hermetically sealed. No human intervention is necessary. Even the regulating of the movement, traditionally a time-consuming manual process, is hands-free: a laser adjusts the movement to an accuracy of +/-7 seconds a day." #swatch   #watches   #design

At least I know how to harass people without even trying: sign up for a fake @airbnb account. Someone used my business phone number, I got more than 5 calls in one hour, 5 texts that still continued when I messaged back STOP. Airbnb customer support will not allow you to contact them without an account. 
Very annoyed that I had to convince the stranger that called me (not from AirBnb, some random person) that they were using my phone in error. At least it wasn't fraud. Or was it?

"When I did Metal Machine Music, New York Times critic John Rockwell said, "This is really challenging."  I never thought of it like that.  I thought of it like, "Wow, if you like guitars, this is pure guitar, from beginning to end, in all its variations.  And you're not stuck to one beat."  That's what I thought.  Not, "I'm going to challenge you to listen to something I made." -Lou Reed, RIP

Lavabit is correct, providing their root encrption keys would undermine the expected privacy of over 40,000 users that have nothing to do with Snowden. It is an unreasonably broad thing to ask for that puts thousands of innocent people in the crossfire.

I sat through all of this. What can I say, I'm a Simpsons geek. Such a joy to see them all interact and give a lot of back story I hadn't heard yet.

"I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
— Phil Zimmerman, PGP inventor and Silent Circle co-founder, in an interview with Om Malik

A letter Steve Albini wrote to Nirvana in the run up to 'In Utero'. As a music fan, this is one of the best things I've read all day.

Got a disk drive going bad? GNU ddrescue might be just what you need. It copies data from disk <-> disk/image in several passes. First, a quick sweep gets data from the known good areas of the disk, attempting to avoid further corrupting it. Run it again, and resume reading / attempt to recover only the bad parts, and it 'fills in' what it didn't get in the initial pass.
Running it here using Ubuntu on a thumb drive to an external USB <-> SATA bridge.
