Just doing some tidying and found this receipt. It is from a time we loaded up a trolley with all the empty glass Irn Bru bottles that we found when we tidied the Aberdeen University Computing Science Society's lab. It was not easy to transport 30 loose glass bottles without breaking them. We probably should have put them in bags. As I recall, we spent the proceeds on more Irn Bru.

I will not discuss voting systems, democracy, or systemd today. I might ponder something less controversial, like text editors, or indentation sizes, so I can have a peaceful day.

Vulnerabilities in some SSDs allow attackers to bypass the disk encryption feature and access the local data without knowing the user-chosen disk encryption password:

– only SSDs with hardware-based encryption are affected (self-encrypting drives (SEDs))
– modes affected: ATA security and TCG Opal

Dear Lazyweb,
consider: You have a laptop, it does wifi, you are at work and you get IPv6 via stateless address autoconf. You slam the lid shut and the laptop goes to sleep. The wifi link goes down.
1) you wander around for 5 minutes and wake the laptop up
2) you go home where you have a different IPv6 prefix and wake the laptop up
3) you go to your favorite cafe which is legacy-IP only and wake your laptop up.

What IPv6 addresses are configured by your favorite OS? #BoostsAppreciated. #IETF103
