PSA: If you might ever need the ACPI spec, fetch it while it's still open.

It's moving to the UEFI Forum.

Where it's currently "hey, just download it", they require you to sign away your right to implement the standard, then go request a license to do so which can be terminated by the Forum within 30 days (the adopter's agreement). So you better avoid doing things that the entities controlling the Forum dislike.

Of course, they might do the right thing here (and while we're at it with UEFI, too), but extrapolating from history, I doubt it.

Since our public broadcasting network managed to mess it up: https://archive.org/details/snowden_interview_en is a world-accessible mirror of the undubbed interview they conducted with Snowden.

Unexpected: Intel released FSP to the general public.

Now let's see if they allow redistribution in coreboot.org's blobs repository.

"Im Wahlkampf hatte [Wahlsieger] Yameen versprochen, für Recht und Ordnung einzutreten. So solle die Todesstrafe künftig vollstreckt, Haftstrafen verlängert und die Bürger flächendeckend überwacht werden."

Mit so einem Wahlprogramm kann man ja nur gewinnen.

"FxA means giving the users the ability to never say goodbye to their Mozilla experience..." is newspeak for "vendor lock-in", right?

Bad Mozilla. No cookie for you.

Exactly. Sadly though!

gerrit 2.8 removes the "gerrit approve" notation used by jenkins's gerrit-trigger. Once you'll find out about that (somewhere on their mailing list), the fix is simple and can be done in the jenkins UI

There will be a couple of presentations on 30C3 that might be of interest to coreboot enthusiasts.

For example the one linked below, concerning the use of coreboot as "goodBIOS", and https://events.ccc.de/congress/2013/Fahrplan/events/5380.html which covers backdooring a system through Intel's ME.

Another ME exploit, hard on the heels of the claims that they won't happen again. The whole ME saga is just so frustrating. It's known to be a bad idea, it's known to be a bad implementation, and it's known, for each version release, to be exploitable. And yet, there it appears, in each new chipset, year after year, long after it should have been put out of its misery. Bizarre. When do we finally drive a stake through it?

mailman creates lockfiles with timestamps in the future (in our case, pretty much exactly 30h). Of course this means that they're valid until then - couldn't be any more obvious.
