A Hacker’s Guide to the GRU Indictment

It’s true I work with computers but that encompasses a lot of things, some of which I know quite a bit about and others almost nothing. I must admit that the intricacies of networking and “cloud” computing fall in the latter category, mostly because I have a pronounced philosophical preference for strong peer computing (a …

Impeach!

I’m sorry but I just can’t understand why all the “Very Serious” people in D.C. are saying very serious things about how appallingly serious, and unexpected, and confusing, and WHY DO YOU KEEP WASTING MY TIME PRETENDING THIS IS “NEW” AND DIFFERENT!” It’s the same impeachable offenses it was January 21st, 2017.

A Good Day For Dinosaur News

A Game Without Pity (But A Lot Of Cheating)

The socially redeeming aspect of golf lies in the vast number of lawyers and bankers and managers who play it, and when you think of the damage they would do if they were at the job instead, you can see why golf courses are a wise investment for any municipality. So Trump is at Turnberry …

A Bad Week

So over last weekend Theresa May had a big Tory summit at Chequers to reconcile the Hard-Brexit plurality with the reality of her new “Softer” Brexit policies. Policies that, soft as they are from a Tory point of view, are intolerably flawed according to the European Union and have been already rejected as insufficient. As …

What He Knew And When He Knew It
