I totally forgot that I even had Evernote until I saw this article and remembered why I stopped using it.
I'm going have a look at Simplenote now.

Plenty of military hardware uses Xbox controllers. They’re familiar to the operators, reasonably robust and reliable (ok, you can have those two) and can be replaced more easily than some bespoke kit.
I CBFd looking up exactly how many and what, but a cursory search found a bomb disposal robot and a couple of other things.
This is one of them.
I always politely decline when a recruiter rings about this and similar firing agencies.
This crew and WITCH. For those watching at home and unfamiliar, WITCH can be seen as the opposite of the “glamour” of FAANG, a few of which I also wouldn’t work for but that’s another story.
TCL (can also be Tech Mahindra if you wish)
That people have got jack of subscriptions and actually want to buy something?
FWIW - CCIE here. Certainly doesn’t mean I run towards the bridge logo. In fact the subscription model has driven me up the wall for a few years now and I consider other options. Unfortunately most of them “require” subscriptions too.
“ not enough juice to supply the millions of electric cars that are coming” and the rest
Airfields have much more electricity supply than a typical house. Most have some kind of light industrial, commercial facilities and ALL that would serve as a destination for this kind of aircraft will have a terminal, radar, and about half a megawatt of lighting already sitting there. Most of this is also backed up by emergency generators so aircraft can still land and night in the event of a power failure.
These things won’t be that hard to “fuel” at all.
PS. I’m a pilot. Not that it matters that much in this context, but I know what you’ll find at an airfield.
"you would have to rely on it blowing itself up"
In he right place and time too. Let's say the thing takes a wrong turn and points itself at Titusville or Orlando and flight control can't resume correct navigation. You'll want to blow it up deliberately well before it gets to an urban centre rather than hope it manages to do it itself on its own before it hits something.
Thats actually rather generous, particularly by American standards. When I've been laid off (Australia) in the past it's been a kick in the arse and not much else. Most American mobs dont even get that.
Either way, I'd prefer to be employed than have a CEO who "accepts responsibility" and "feels terrible" and need to go home and tell the family Im looking for work and can't put food on the table because someone else made a few shit decisions.
How North Korea stealing crypto to bypass sanctions helps its defence programmes? I ,Evan it’s not like they can use bitcoin to buy a bunch of jets/destroyers now is it? Who would accept it? I’m guessing I’ve got that wrong.
All I can think of is maybe the stolen “cash” disrupts someone else’s economy.
I worked for Aussie”s third tier telco back in the day (this particular day, I’ve also worked for numbers 1&2 at various stages) An old ATM based partial mesh was replaced with a ladder type MPLS topology and everyone was happy. That was until two legs of the ladder “somewhere between the east coast and Perth” suffered from backhoe attenuation* almost simultaneously. The normally highly resilient ladder topology didn’t handle two backhoes a few thousand km apart going through two legs at the same time.
I recalled an old STM-1 that connected Sydney to Perth that no one remembered to turn off. Rang a NOC guy and asked him to log into the router these links were connected to. “No shut” on both interfaces and they lit up (!!!), better yet the old IPs were still on the interfaces and the bastards could ping. Immediately set up BGP neighbourships and they started to exchange prefixes. Bang. We’re up again. One poxy/stupid** ATM link is hardly a super resilient ladder topology but it worked until the network could be repaired (a week or so).
* Backhoe attenuation is a phenomenon where cables, particularly underground high capacity fibres, lose signal due to errant backhoes digging them up.
** If something is “stupid” and it works, then it is not stupid.
You’ll find there’d be some serious NDAs and handling procedures around this. I’ve had jobs where I’ve allowed to take “work stuff” home, and others where I can’t. I’d presume that Apple hardware, especially when it involves a v0 product will not be allowed to leave some highly secure room(s) at Appleville.
Here it is. With explanations of how to play etc. Personally I’m not sure I could have worked it out if this thing landed on my lap with the diagrams shown as the only “instructions” but I’m sure the sort who’d have the means to find the thing are smarter than me.
“Every new version becomes overloaded with features”
And new versions of certifications which must be updated every 1-3 years for engineers, and partner status to stay current, for no real reason but to sell poorly worded exams filled with spelling, grammatical and technical errors.
Granted VMware is an exception. I have not needed to renew my VCP-DCV or NV for a while now. I don’t see a personal benefit in the pissing contest in not being called a VCP 2022 just because some other guy has it.
Disclaimer: despite the fact I used to work for Citrix, and hate them so much I need counselling, I can acknowledge the worth and usefulness of their products.
I don’t understand how Citrix could have gone so badly during covid and associated lockdowns, and the rise of extensive remote working. For a company whose bread and butter is remote working products, associated security and the like should have absolutely cleaned up. Now look at them. Seems like they are hoping Broadcom/VMware stuff things up worse than what they did and that the customers who migrated to VMware Horizon come back when Vmware decide they aren’t big enough to be customers anymore.
Bank or similar body: your credit score is bad, therefore you are unable to get a mortgage and you’re on the street
Customer; How can that be? I pay off everything on time. I’ll investigate!
Equifux: We broke something. Sorry. Not your fault.
Customer: But I’m on the street now? What can I do? Consumers evidently rely on accurate reporting by you lot for our livelihoods. Well that’s what you tell us anyway.
Equifux: I’ll refer you to our previous sorry message and we’ll also add that we take security and IT issues seriously.
“Dynamic organisation” what? No one knows what’s happening there?
“Competitive salary” competitive with what? If it’s competitive, just tell me what it is then
“Agile” we have standups, but PMs want deadlines so they still fell relevant
“Continuous improvement” it’s a shitshow and won’t ever change
“ Additional duties as required” no shit, mostly after hours and not recognised as paid overtime
What’s routing protocols got to do with blocking websites?
Ok. Before you get smart, BGP sinkholes *could* and *are* used to block IP addresses, typically to block a DoS these days, but it means you’d be blocking any and all services hosted on whatever the IP you’re blocking is. Which is why you can resolve multiple FQDNs to the same IP address and whatever content you’re after is sent from whatever content or application delivery controller/system the host has.
