So I am a satisfied GPMAA family customer. It's a product that simply works, reliably, also offline, and also with Sonos. That product is going away.

There is a supposed replacement coming up, which is not yet available in my country. And it's unclear if it will have the features that I need - Sonos integration, play my own uploaded music, offline access from the cellphone and family integration. It's also unclear if they will migrate my existing 40k uploads and my playlists.

In the past, whenever Google "improved" their offers, I had to migrate to some other, non-google service to compensate. That's why I am on WhatsApp and that's why I am still using aCalendar+ instead of the Google Calendar app.

So what music service are you using, and can it do what is important to me?

Writing Specs is hard. Here is PSON: https://puppet.com/docs/puppet/5.5/http_api/pson.html » PSON is a variant of JSON that puppet uses for serializing data to transmit across the network or store on disk. Whereas JSON requires that the serialized form is valid unicode (usually UTF-8), PSON is 8-bit ASCII, which allows it to represent arbitrary byte sequences in strings.«

The microspec specifices encoding rules. There are 7 special snowflake encodings for ", \, Space, Backspace, HT, LF, FF and CR. 5 of them are for characters in the 0x00 to 0x1F range.

The microspec also states that » In addition, any character between 0x00 and 0x1F, (except the ones listed above) must be encoded as a six byte sequence of \u followed by four ASCII digits of the hex number of the desired character. For example the ASCII Record Separator character (0x1E) is represented as \u001E (0x5C, 0x75, 0x30, 0x30, 0x31, 0x45).«

The spec says "except the ones listed above" as an aside in parens, but of course the parsers recommended will happily accept both, and the spec does not speak about canonicalisation. That means, that a LF can be encoded as \n as well as a \u000A. Which means that you cannot compare encoded values for equality easily.

In Unicode, that was the root cause of many problems, most of them exploitable security problems.

Anderswo ist gerade ein Riesenaufriß um die kommende "Chat" Anwendung, die Android Messages (SMS) ersetzen soll, und damit iMessage Paroli bieten soll.

In https://plus.google.com/+AJSitthixay/posts/dvhV2X2Tv73 ist der Konsens, daß das offenbar eine US Sache ist, denn anderswo verwendet niemand SMS. Und daß Amerikaner endlich auf WhatsApp umsteigen sollten wie man das in zivilisierten Ländern halt so macht.

Ich denke, die Analyse ist nicht ganz falsch. 2FA, falls der Google Authenticator kaputt sein sollte, oder Lieferbenachrichtigungen und Provider-Messages. Sonst hat es kein SMS.

It's not actually rare for a fire suppression system to kill a data center. It's happened in sweden this time, https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/technology/loud-sound-from-fire-alarm-system-shuts-down-nasdaqs-scandinavian-data-center/

but it has happened before. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/acoustic-shock-data-centres-martin-mcgettrick/

Disk heads are really, really close to the surface of the platter. They just barely fly. With Helium filled disks, even closer. Noise creates vibration. Disk heads crash into the rotating surface of the disk, destroying the head and the media and the data. Done.
