Warning: The Ban TikTok Bill Is Not What You Think It Is
Post Date: 2023-04-01 02:53:04 by Charles_Byrd
Like many Generation X folks, Ive complained long and hard about TikTok and the brainwashing effects on young people of 15-30-second intervals of entertaining social programming for hours at a time. I have also been concerned about the Chinese ownership of TikTok is this just a giant psy-op? So when I heard that Congress was finally getting ready to ban the app, I was curious. I do see inherent dangers with TikTok. I do believe its being used to both spy and brainwash our young people. But should it actually be banned? And what door does such a ban open to further restrictions on our freedom? Click for Full Text!

If you're connected to Wi-Fi while reading this article, you might be interested in testing your internet speed, which you can do with a simple online search to check your download speed. The highest median download speed in the United States is in Minnesota, with 100 megabytes per second, which is great for all work and entertainment uses. However, while high-density states such as New Jersey, New York, or Washington D.C are high, those states with more rural communities suffer from much lower internet speed: Mississippi, Vermont, Wyoming, and Alaska all rate the lowest in the U.S with less than 40 Mbps median speed.

Post Date: 2023-01-06 00:20:54 by Charles_Byrd
Twitter appears to have been breached yet again. In the latest instance, a hacker calling himself StayMad has reportedly leaked the personal data of over 200 million users, including high profile accounts such as Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Donald Trump Jr., SpaceX, CBS Media, NBA, WHO, and more.

The latest instance of 200 million accounts are the remnants of the previous hack, after the elimination of duplicate data. Click for Full Text!

Lindsey Millar, who reported the breach exposing the sensitive information of the site's users, reports that Governor Hutchinson is trying to villainize the person who stumbled upon the unexpected data flow. It all started innocently enough when a programmer, who had attempted ...
LF Back on line
Post Date: 2020-03-01 11:31:36 by Pinguinite
Some server difficulties arose yesterday and was resolved, but I attempted some additional maintenance and that was unsuccessful which took the web site down. So the server has been rolled back to it's previous state and is now back on line. This server operating system is actually pretty old and has been upgraded repeatedly over the years, but that underlying age is catching up to it so it's apparently reached the point where it's time to simply create a brand new server and migrate all services to it, including this site. So that's on the to-do list in the coming weeks. When that's done, there shouldn't be any noticeable outage. Apologies for the downtime.
The Democrats' Unhinged Hearing With Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg
Post Date: 2019-10-25 10:38:29 by Tooconservative
Without question, there is a bias among Big Tech. Theyre all based in Silicon Valley, California. Theyre unabashedly liberal, though they understand that there is a conservative audience that has money. Often times, conservatives go about combating this bias in embarrassing fashion, usually flubbing the messaging part especially. Yet, for all of the Rights faults in combating social media bias, Democrats showed yesterday that theyre not really all that far behind in spewing their nonsense about Facebook. The social media giant is working on its own cryptocurrencyLibrabut that didnt stop Democratic lawmakers from making total clowns of themselves ...

International Space Station switches from Windows to Linux, for improved reliability
Post Date: 2019-08-30 14:07:32 by Willie Green
The United Space Alliance, which manages the computers aboard the International Space Station in association with NASA, has announced that the Windows XP computers aboard the ISS have been switched to Linux. We migrated key functions from Windows to Linux because we needed an operating system that was stable and reliable. In specific, the dozens of laptops will make the change to Debian 6. These laptops will join many other systems aboard the ISS that already run various flavors of Linux, such as RedHat and Scientific Linux. As far as we know, after this transition, there wont be a single computer aboard the ISS that runs Windows. Beyond stability and ...
