I'm putting G+ on hold for the time being.

From now on new posts will be coming in at https://henry-flower.dreamwidth.org/.

TTFN

I finally saw Horace and Pete. 8/10

Steve Buscemi is the best, as usual.
Louis C.K. is alright.
Edie Falco's performance is outstanding (btw, she is the very dudette who was playing the wife of Anthony Soprano).

Facebook Mom → idiom

A mother who doesn't do shit for her kids but will post on her kids Facebook wall like she's parent of the year.

When this happens, I recommend to go take a walk, look at the trees, enjoy life,

2016: It was a year when Firefox became irrelevant

Firefox (50 + 51): 3.12 + 1.82 = 4.94%
Opera Mini: 4.12%
IE11: 3.69%
...
Chrome (desktop + mobile): 22.55 + 24.01 = 46.56%

Oh, wonderful :(

"A hacking group linked to the Russian government [...] likely used a malware implant on Android devices to track and target Ukrainian artillery units from late 2014 through 2016, according to a new report released Thursday.

The malware was able to retrieve communications and some locational data from infected devices, intelligence that would have likely been used to strike against the artillery in support of pro-Russian separatists fighting in eastern Ukraine"

"Downloads of the legitimate app were promoted on pages used by Ukrainian artillery on vKontakte, a Russian social media website, CrowdStrike said. There is no evidence the application was made available in the Android app store, limiting its distribution, the firm said."

vKontakte, my arse.

Is this what I think it is? A dude uploads an apk on vk, KGB says "THANK YOU VERY MUCH IDIOTS" & poisons the apk, which gets downloaded later on by a naïve Ukrainian soldier to his phone.

:(

Sometimes I think that Ukrainians are hopeless.


Kyiv, Dec 2016

A small store filled w/ the crappiest phones ever made. A nice looking girl looks closely at some horrible Lenovo device that has a price tag of 1599 UAH (~ $60). A dim sales assistant w/ a face of a dead ox approaches her. I overhear the girl asking him:

"Какіе банкі крєдітуют?"

I don't even.
Wait while more posts are being loaded
