Re: Still brickin'...
I had a very quick look and I *think* firmware-amd-graphics and firmware-brcm80211 are going to be what you need to get things to a useable state where you can then add the non-free repo and install anything else you need

Debian by design doesnt support non-free drivers or firmware out of the box you have to specifically enable that and that position will never ever change as its somewhat central to debians ethos.
Its quite likely that your network chip and gfx card require firmware and/or non free driver to operate.
You might want to look into installing the appropriate nonfree firmwares or at least whatever your network interface needs, then enableing the non-free repo and installing the rest.
You can also get unnofficial install media with the nonfree drivers builtin which might be easier for you.
Yeah how dare you *checks notes* clone a repo from github.
Dont you know everything on github is a private secret not meant to be cloned by the public.
Some of the responses are making me wonder how many people here are keeping private photos on imgur.com and are going to act all shocked pikachu when they find out everyone can see them.
I presume the "figure of 10,000 compromise attempts over five years was a conservative one" as they didnt count all the UK's operations or the ones were we were merely tampering with a linkedin profile in transit as that doesnt count.
Doesn't this mean that their sales team are going to stop caring once a sale gets beyond ~9 million or so as they won't get any increase in comission beyond that?
So difficult to negotiate £27 million contracts will become super easy to negotiate £10 million contracts? granted possibly not quite so extreme.
In fairness the CoL havent exactly covered themselves in glory running Action Fraud:
But then aslong as its individuals being defrauded and not one of their paymasters in the financial services industry they aren't going to care.
The other way to look at it is that ISP 's are businesses and will look to monetise any asset they control so they are probably selling that data, theres a reason they started squealing about mozilla adding DoH support https://www.theregister.com/2019/07/10/ispa_clears_mozilla/
I just googled this case and found an article on the whitchurch heralds website* that quoted the judge as saying:
"All parties need to take a long, hard look at themselves. I suspect if the residents of Whitchurch saw those emails, they would be deeply shocked."
Which seems to be in reference to:
"[Young] found herself the subject of criticism from some councillors, which affected her health," said Mr Hanratty. "Including 250 emails from two councillors in a short period of time.
As they seem to have been evidence in court can you FOI request the emails so the residents of Whitchurch, and us in the peanut gallery, can read them and be deeply shocked?
I cant think of a worse outcome than creating the conditions that would result in china making tiny ADS-B transmitters, pry one out of a crashed drone, prod the electronics a bit to make it report as being several jumbo jets vaguely near the current location, strap it to a seagull and head to your nearest airport to cause havok
An earlier date to consider, Tea smuggeling in the 18th century:
And with figures like "More than 3,000 tonnes of tea was smuggled into Britain a year by the late 1700s, with just 2,000 tonnes imported legally." That is either a few dishonest people drinking a hell of alot of tea, or or alot of people drinking suspiciously cheap tea no questions asked.
I imagine there will be some market for this in the coming years once we crash out of the EU end up with wto tarrifs and massive customs queues, what sane persons going to bubble up their suplier who's smuggleing in their tea and insulin
I think a more measured headline would have been:
"Pissing tiny speck of radioactive material goes missing, government to spend $275 on replacement"
I have no idea of the cost of the plutonium one but if your in the US and want a 10µC Cesium¹³⁷ standard United Nuclear have got you covered for $145 + $130 if you want better calibration:
Im seriously tempted by their Spinthariscopes though, but i have no idea if I can get one shipped to the UK:
"Gets really nasty to work out why the code doesn't work as expected if a mix are used"
Dont you have a just-fixit script to replace all tabs with 4 spaces? it saves loads of aggro when copying and pasting a mish mash of stackoverflow answers, some with tabs and some with spaces. :P
Paul Hovnanian that was 9 months ago and was likely a leak from a medical isotope making lab, and was in the order of a few micro grams*, and given it has a half life of 8 days after 9 months there will be basically nothing left. It got plenty of sensationalist news at the time but the news didnt get across the incredible sensitivity of the detectors and the tiny amounts involved, It's like me farting in south wales and somebody detecting a whiff of that fart in scotland levels of sensitive.
Thats what 802.11p is going to be used for i believe, the roadworks will broadcast the restriction to cars.
In europe i believe its all in the ETSI ITS-G5 standard.
I presume america will have a different incompatible standard as is customary.
The raving idiots from the ukranian youtube channel Kreosan have a small scale demo of this with their staggeringly mindboggelingly dangerous magnetron on a stick:
Kind of interesting to see but it made me wince even though im 2000 miles away at the other end of an internet connection.
How about old fashioned barrage baloons, but rather than those large cumbersome WWII things i was thinking more dental floss and party baloons its quite effective when wrapped round a motor.
You can see it towards the end of this video here:
Also the drone mounted chainsaw might work in a defensive capability too
I have a plan to uparmour my drone to defeat this using easily and cheaply produced ablative carbon foam tiles¹ to whom sould I apply for an opportunity to test this armour against the laser? Perhaps the special projects bureau could get this tested for us, expensive laser Vs £1 worth of diy carbon foam? :P
Given the lack of information its impossible to be certain but the few android powered connect to the tv boxes I have seen use something like a 5v 2A wallwart adapter, the cheap ones of these are all shit and will fail on creepage and clearance and probably also on having undersized copper clad aluminium cables.
Bigclive on youtube has plenty of teardowns of such grotty adapters if you want to see more.
If your really worried have a rummage through that big old box of branded psu's to old equipment you have long since lost and find a suitable one with the same voltage and current rating, just check thay havent done something staggeringly stupid like make it center negative :P
I had a mooch at the Biohax Sweeden site (aparently they are assisting with the implants) and they seem to use the NTAG216 chip.
Another quick mooch on t'internet and it seems chinese magic writable UID Ntag cards are a thing now.
How much carbide do the ships carry for the acetylene lamps? Id imagine if the ship has been subjected to a sufficient blast for an EMP to take out the electronics the lightbulb will be quite dickered and electricity may not be available.
Im not even going to look as is sounds like the sort of stupid thing someone would have made but id be stunned if you cant find a mobile app on google play that does the same thing with the camera on the phone and the led flash to let you send pointless messages at night over distances you could just shout, just add some local bluetooth/wifi sync so one phone acts as master and the rest slaves and have all the sailors line up on deck pointing their phones at the other ship and marvel at them all flickering in sync.
If this doesnt exist im relying on you good reg readers to make it a thing, the world needs a mobile phone based clacks terminal.
Before the linkfarmers were banished to the wilderness beyond results page 10 I can rember having to search using a variation of:
Just so find the actual product i wanted for sale instead of some spammy comparison site that didnt even link to somewhere selling it, so as well as giving us the bloody annoying cookie popup perhaps we'll be getting seo stuffed chaff in our search results too, fantastic.
Currently we have GPS, GLONASS and Galileo to choose from and by 2020 ish China will have expanded BeiDou to be global, then as has been mentioned there is the wi-fi/celltower geolocation stuff if close is good enough or are they proposing some apocalypse proof system? in which case id suggest the stop and ask someone method, you will be furnished with a list of turnings and pubs you will go past to get to where you want to be.
A 2m Drone! seems legit.

Its somewhat improbable unless its some ridiculously expensive commercial thing, i just measured my cheerson cx-20 and its about 40cm across.
Given the description of "orb shaped objects" its likely either weather balloons or my childhood favourite of bin bags cut up and taped together to make a balloon envelope and burning hexamine tablets wired into the bottom to make a diy hot air balloon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OjB6ia5v0c , although these days you can just buy environmentally unfriendly sky lanterns off ebay but not that big i think.
