If you dual boot Linux and Windows on your machine, be careful with the most recent Window updates!
Microsoft disabled more than 100 SecureBoot signatures and locks out distros like Ubuntu 20.04 or Manjaro from booting on your computer.
You can temporarily disable SecureBoot in your BIOS settings, should you already be affected by this situation.
Anyone really think Domain Name System (DNS) can be replaced by some "domains on blockchain" whatever? Seriously, we struggle to bring #DNSSEC into addressing system and out of a sudden we will rework entire naming of the internet that's been there from the beginning? 🤣 Don't get me wrong: I adore #cryptography and implementations of #crypto on #blockchain but it's just ridiculous how some think blockchain is a solution of just about everything. It's not. #buzzwords #dns #web3 #web3scam
As #github now finally supports Mermaid.js #diagrams there is really no further stoppers to use them everywhere 🤓 I've got to know this great plain text (therefore easy to version on #git) diagramming library by Knut Sveidqvist when using @gitea for @inretio needs and liked it a lot to use also with #VSCodium (via plugin) for daily notes. Highly recommend!

#Ukraine: Russia has launched 'full-scale invasion'
When #corporate greed undermines #engineering culture, disasters happen. At Boeing it literally happened two times with passenger aircraft #boeing 737 MAX killing hundreds. Senior management was only interested in stock prices - those criminals cut costs in engineering, quality assurance and training. Yet instead of jail time CEO Dennis Muilenburg walks away with $62.2m in stock and pension awards. He is back in #aviation industry now. This is outrageous. #documentary "Downfall"
As #Spotify co-founder Daniel Ek invested 9 figures EUR into defence startup Helsing and continues to host misinformation by Joe Rogan exclusively paying him 100m USD, it's time to leave this #music and #podcast platform for good. Highly encourage to #deletespotify esp. if you pay for Premium subscription. #canceljoerogan
Canonical, maker of #Ubuntu basically advertising for NFTs as some of it uses Ubuntu Core 🤦🤦gross.
It may not be them doing it directly, but that's a pretty clear NFT endorsement.
Did the folks at Canonical really think this through? Too busy seeing ££ signs perhaps? NFTs are shite, stop it.
Interesting to know: Corsair acquired Scuf Gaming, leader in performance console controllers, in 2019 which has a large portfolio of patents around rear paddles and trigger technology. XBOX Elite series controllers are licenced from Scuf Gaming #gaming
We applaud Google for implementing this much-needed feature. Now Apple needs to implement this feature as well, for the safety of their customers. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2022/01/victory-google-releases-disable-2g-feature-new-android-smartphones
Max Schrems, the lawyer who successfully sued Facebook, has scored another victory; this time against Google: Austria's data protection authority has found that Google Analytics is illegal on European websites. #Fight4Privacy 💪💪💪

Love European electronics 🇪🇺 ❤️ Perfect way to start #arduino journey with #retro console Gamebuino META from France 🇫🇷 Powered by the same chip (ATSAMD21) as Arduino Zero but also having LED screen, audio, lights and controls out-of-the-box. And the note in #Lithuanian is simply adorable 😊 #opensource #madeinfrance #lafrenchtech #cpp #development #hardware #engineering
While we used the original chips for the TinyNES to keep that nostalgic feel, for other components we modernized the process.

I've been very critical of "web3" over on 🐦 recently: https://twitter.com/ilikebeans.
On @firstname.lastname@example.org, I wrote about how the #fediverse, if anything, seems like the closest thing we have to a true "web3" (without blockchaining all the things): https://write.as/matt/what-would-a-real-web3-look-like
