If you use PlayOnLinux(*) and your programs stopped launching in recent days, you will find this link helpful:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=852765

and

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=849192[1]

TL;DR netcat-openbsd changed and breaks PlayOnLinux




(*) I don't play games but this package makes installing windows programs a breeze :)

The news continues to develop almost faster than I can type analyses. But I've tried to round up the most critical updates from the past few hours, together with a discussion of what they mean.

The short version is this: we're seeing the formation of an "inner circle" of government, including Trump, Bannon, Miller, Kushner, Priebus, and possibly Flynn and Conway, who have been taking deliberate steps to hobble the ability of all other parts of government – the rest of the Executive branch, Congress, and most especially the courts – from controlling them. Somewhat unexpectedly, they went straight for an attempt to grab extraordinary physical powers over people (yesterday's Muslim ban), rather than trying to boil the frog slowly; in the context of other moves taken over the past week, this starts to look like a coherent strategy.

Power, including the power to execute every one of the things that Trump promised to do during the campaign, is the primary goal; money, in large, untraceable quantities, appears to be the secondary.

Governor Jay Inslee calls Trump EO "unconstitutional action". Let that sink in. 5 minutes of controlled rage worth watching. https://www.youtube.com/embed/ESoB5iVAq_4

"Our president is a pathological liar. Say it. Write it. Never become inured to it. And dispense with the terms of art to describe it."
