Well written. Confirms what +Russell Stuart said at Humbug some weeks back

OK, that's the last thing I'm reading about SystemDebStartGate until this is over.  Because it's brilliant.

Russ Allbery has won by being civil to his opponents. That's a great example!

Help!  Anyone out there using memory ballooning in production, or know someone who is?  I'm trying to gather data points for the OASIS virtio standard, where we're deprecating the old balloon, and fundamental questions go deeper than devs can answer:
In particular, would you be happy with guests simply giving the host back whatever memory they can spare (as Xen's self-balloon does)?  Or do you require the host-forcing approach?  Comment or email please!

Since a couple of people were arrested in Florida for trading on localbitcoins.com I decided to get a legal opinion on the situation here in Australia and they agreed to share. News is good for individual traders:

Ah ha! Thought I saw this flash past as we watched Wargames. Unfortunately the movie was released a year before the GNU project began, so not a homage... :(

They're remarkably subtle these time travellers, in their jokes.

Indeed, confirmation bias by authorities, when combined with secrecy so that it can't be challenged, is a geniune source of terror.

I think we should all be worried by this.  There are a bunch of things that Brandon did that were suspicious if you assume a bunch of things are 'unpatriotic' - like believing in a religion other than Christianity and helping people that aren't USAdian citizens.  Everyone does things that could look suspicious given a particular zealous mindset.

You only have to look at the article on the BBC site:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/adamcurtis/posts/BUGGER
to see just how the whole spying industry gets turned in on itself - continually paranoid, continually seeing signs that it's under attack, and always able to find reasons to justify its existence.

+Rusty Russell - yea more accurately would  have been for the report to say there's no online fraud that the store has to worry about :-)

Brian - I think the problem is that many people have demonstrated that they are unable to properly protect (and backup) their private keys. And these are the early adopters who have higher than average technical comptence. So the burden for security shifts from the stores and banks to the end-user who is in most cases going to be a lot less technically competent.

Open source location service being built by Mozilla!  Android people, please install (scanning so far while driving across town really wore down my battery, but assume it would be less intense if you're not travelling).

I'm 1216th on the leaderboard, but hoping to break through #1000 tonight!
