How 'sleeper agent' AI assistants can sabotage your code without you realizing

Re: Great (LineageOS, et al.)

So why would you not move to a nougaty or newer Lineage OS (take a los?) or take advantage of your device's maturity to freshen its loadout from a well-fuzzed bsd source? No current maintainer, or more like losing the back screen (driver?)

Sure, you can keep Grandpa Windows 7 snug in the old code home – for a price


Re: Not funny caption

So what's the plan for nicotinamide riboside and WINE 6.1 then? First sign of missing a nickname 4 times in a row, clinical doses (2800mg, in fruit) then 200 mg a day (early in meals?) and when it releases? Quarterly dose adjustment dependent on whether they've installed AROS or VMS?

Single-use is design tragedy of sorts. Brutalism for nothingness fans. You either integrate the pipecleaner with the single-use straw or call it trash and imagine it thoroughly enough to pop out in a way that at least agonizes gulls if not performing as silage straw, doing turtle-gut cleansing that missing seaweeds no longer do, and making supercaustic in breakdown to combat carbonic acid.

So they shouldn't alternately excrete perovskites, electroparamagnetic organics, graphene and nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes? What's a successor microbe to do?

I wonder how much from Albertson's will get incorrectly flagged.

This will probably put the lid on the Theresa May bits where she wonders about shorting those people engaged in Labor; just when the exact opposite of what it supposedly discusses (plus honorifics and NHS LSD microdosing ad libum for the people who voted stay, and not waiting to TKO the rest of the wait or EU exit or probably poorly coined political terms in general) is earnestly needed.

EFF dinks HP Inc finks in rinky-dink ink stink


HPE has bug bounty cheering; get those MITM cartridge cozzies sent 'round!

Well, they have a bug bounty program https://firebounty.com/bug-bounty-program/4/hp so it the next log that hits 120 pages before INK OUT for a cartridge color you don't even love should let one take it out on a variety of select 'secure cartridge-printer communications.'

For example, can the printer tell that the cartridge inside it used to carry specialty inks used in vaccination labs, has a large family of colors (BEIGE 89257, BEIGE 89119, BEIGE 89740...) that have recently radicalized and traveled to color labs that also do human trafficking, eaten the chips out of several stockroom neighbors, and then trained for 3 months to put bows on replacement supplies with notes 'Please change ink when it whinges {top secret intelligence emoji}?'


Re: EFF Misnomer?

It could be Electronic Amnesty Foundation, out opposing the bricking penalty for printers and freeing PS4 from the obligations of PS2 or stopping systemic cruelty to odd version dot releases.

And it's not about advancing the bar or engineering per se, but more the people trying to live paperless and choose their own shared multi-head console without first shaking NIST (NBS?) .

Re: Yet again

Yes similarly why would we have a default browser, and yet it looks like wolf bait has served us very poorly here. The bar for subliminal content to include in 'bad tees' (as opposed to fine art toques) has been fattened if not raised.

Even so I get lots of intents I don't intend even without baseband p0wn season on, and on a BYOD I haven't rooted (my desktop for that has 2MB DDR2, I can't root everything; like the phone with no 5 of another Stephen) supposing there were a reason to tether or otherwise connect on usb for trust maintenance and backup who's to say I'd capture the right logcat food or fout()?

Nvidia GPUs give smut viewed incognito a second coming


See OpenCL, any other buffer mechanism at hand

Openfb had this problem only 12 and 15 years ago, so it's understandable that OpenCL, which doesn't allocate specific memory (only something free on the scoreboard) and which can have quite a long callback in being asked to clear the buffer used would have a hitch or so coughing up a callback for a clear displaylist. Or, your OS might use Persistent Mapped Buffers (OpenGL) and not be compiled to worry horribly about data load determinacy (v. callbacks w. new pointer optional) and reusing them. Quite normal if you're not running signboards in a government building! (Flying dockets! Tripletake defense-state!)

Either you want a fuzzer or active padding daemon competing (maybe with some determinism) with your power scheme to prevent leaks on displays of the same machine...reproduce it with lvm and you've earned an educational use case to ponder...or you really want to save power and noise.


Re: Video driver clearing memory

As reported it seems like the video replayed. If it's Flash, won't fix deprecated things seems to apply, but if it's incognito mode and HTML5, seems pretty significant to issue, commit and execute the GPU cache and data (otherwise frustrated by OpenCL, which I thought we liked.)

Contrawise, if there were a link that broke out bugzilla or git so:

-Reproduced with 4K HSVC 3D Gay pr0n; 2 hour video plays during aggravated Just Cause 5 Load (parameters at link, etc.) Came twice anyhow like always with loading screens.

-Reproduced with Hatsune Miku while falling at 7000' in an updraft 3:40.2. Came twice. Peckish.

-Reproduced with locals. Came four times. 5:13:11 according to FitBit. More worried than anything I can't remember seeing them.

-Cannot reproduce; it's video not actual fecundity. [Don't want to know.]

From Zero to hero: Why mini 'puter Oberon should grab Pi's crown


Re: Author comment -- could you lot miss the point any more widely?

The VGA, PS/2 keyboard bit sort of plays up the historical and wearing-the-sweater-to-the-last-pill (missed the easy germanic word, sorry) sensibilities and gilds the age of the pre-U1...U3 microSDHC. Just the sort of thing for playing Assassination Classroom in public; can Team Bluebottle find vulns in Team Oberon? Only perhaps this sticks one with exposing a pad with the JTAG pin or feeding it an ASK antenna.

Playing on Hardcore you'd have to bring tree frog/caterpillar blood antifreeze or some other rite of spring (...for 10y.o. if I'm reading this right, so caching freshwater might be in there...) into the competition.

The FPGA is a perfectly sensible inclusion; no need for 10k seat licenses on there until you lock in Knight's Bridge wordlengths (500-bit?) at scale. It would make it uncomfortable for the wearer to have to dissipate top-line SHARC or FPGA...you'd know your sweater shorted it or you'd been found vulnerable.

I am looking forward to the next XMOS thing.

Re: The author is thinking like a colonial.

Yes, once we realize Libya is a completely together place from the point of view that they live and breathe browser SoCs and evangelism, and the character encoding of their communications becomes clear, the USA will have nothing to do but build humble desalination plants; also raising sorghum, hominy and cinnamon. Everyone will want to move to Libya's stylish non-filetree namespace for .mozilla/firefox/CrashReports/pending/ to have the absolute latest.

Also they have been publishing group photos of all those million-a-day founders; just wait for the associated 3D web printers, the tv shows about fighting API docs, the Limits To WebGL financial to-do...

Gartner magicians conjure technological TUBE MAP

Do you never get a 'magic quadrant' investment jostle browsing about (your Script Arch browser extension starting to sneeze as you allow some Engadget script over Reg Hardware, say?) The thing is, C-level business sometimes very sensibly asks for their reports to answer questions like 'can I has designer VM flash market?' and 'So where are all the people I came for, then?' When people cannot afford the work and terms of Sterling, they hire Gartner.

Hershey Bars. No pub atmosphere at all. Twinkies. YMMV.

I hear the ones from the plant in Pennsylvania are better than OK owing condition, but it's not like there aren't lots of artisinal bars with 20-92% (tastes better than nibs by me) more than 4% cocoa solids. Gritty sounds like it's not a bar made of sugar and fat, and no flour that would make it shortbread, so...was this a thing of focus in the book?

Twinkies are very durable cakes for when a patisserie seems 700-7000km away, and though I would make plans to change this and that (oh ruin, fiber, flavinoid and ALA3; towards a cell signalling narcotic snack food for today) I did like them.

Wouldn't they do better to acquire and study Gone Girl? The words go together, I hear.

Adapt or...mind the carbon and live on land.

That's excellent adapting more, and I feel that some carbon-based life is up to it, but side-effects of doing things right (reducing filth, farming (well...buying from a local vertical farm) in concert with a like for natural abundance and adaptability) permit society, and mean a human die-off less harsh; plus transhumanism suffers less salt damage. With luck, buildings that can weather 100 years well will remain possible. Efreet cities and orbital arcologies' workup would need workup cycles shortened from 9000 to 9 years out; no model rockets, 11th grade is for sentient foil air bearings and a Masters' Defence for replicating your department's level of work in half their volume of night sky.

Carbon from industrial sources is on par with...farming! For every ruiner tribe faking sewage treatment with pipes seaward, cooking alone and dieseling to work, there are farmers using land cleared in the last 50,000 years, hard put to emulate uncleared land productivity.

Logitech CEO: Google TV a 'gigantic mistake'


$149 for 1080p (so 60Hz) videoconferencing ain't bad. Well....

It's the 2.5-meter diameter warm-white ring light and gobos, plus peri lens, shotgun mics, and software to make corner shots look like structured spaces that made the product.

Logitech managed to make the universal-remote-wot-has-a-screen hover at $100-250 for a decade, but to credit their wits I hear it works great (and doesn't chime or drunk-dial.) They've definitely fallen under the rollers Samsung, ASUS, store brand et al have on market (counterexamples?) in timorous introductions of pool-cue, brainwave, nunchuk, and 6-DOF cue shuttle controllers. Given the scale of the company, the $300 box is a giant mistake in the manner that an Economist reader tossing $30 instead of $5 on lotto is. Obviously they did not lose (gain) a toehold on set-top-boxes in China.

They should, of course. As it is it looks like conferencing envy is split between Dick + Ribs Software Holdings Premium customers, and people with RED cameras and something Sony's demoing among comers whose studio and H.364 self-noise is under 7dB; so it's not like there isn't room in the $29.00-3900 gap, user-made content hype machines revving or not.
