I'm still amazed at the progress that SpaceX has made in such a short time.

There's 1 million Teslas sold. How many "bucketloads of YouTube videos and EV forum posts with Tesla owners" are there? From how many different owners?
Also, plenty of drivers from other brands do stupid things: https://www.slashgear.com/mercedes-active-lane-assist-fooled-with-soda-can-02339580/
Please provide proof for that "significatn proportion of their customers" claim? Also, as Tesla stats show: Accidents happen far less often with activated AP than without.
Btw, every day, human drivers cause thousands of accidents and crashes. I'm sure you're also vigorously fighting that no humans are allowed to drive cars anymore, right?
When was the last time you boarded a plane? Didn't you wonder why there's a flight captain and co-captain? I mean the autopilot has been in planes for decades. Sure they don't need pilots anymore if you think it's autonomous.
So, why did you never wonder why there's still a captain and co-captain despite the plane having autopilot?
To my understanding, LEOs aren't much of a problem as non-functional satellites will come down to earth within a short period of time and vaporize themselves in the atmosphere. The higher up the satellites are, the longer it takes until earth's gravity puts them in again.
I generate passwords usually using pwgeny -ync 40 and then I store password, username, email address, login url in my password manager. When I need to login, open password manager and just copy'n'paste the password. Why would I need to type those passwords all the time? One password for phone encryption and one password for the password manager is all I need.
From facebook we know that they sell directly all your data and give thousands of shady people full access to its api so slurp up everything. Google, on the other hand (to my knowledge), does not sell your data directly. They will match it with ads but the advertisers don't get your data. While both data hoarding services are very worrisome, currently I still view Google as the lesser evil of the two.
Contrary to Mercedes with their "DrivePilot" ad, Tesla never said it's a driverless car. They clearly state that option will be available in the future - meaning it's not available today. Also, everyone who has a driver licence should know the basic rules that, as driver, you'll always have to be in full control of the car and dedicate your full attention to the traffic situation.
How is automatic renewal a pain? I've been using LE since it was available for beta. Meanwhile I just use DNS-01 because that allows me to get wildcard certs and cerst also for (sub-)domains that aren't reachable from the internet.
And as LE recommends, they get renewed every 60 days, so there's a grace period of 30 days and LE also sends out friendly reminders if your certs are to expire soon and you haven't requested new ones yet.
Sounds like a Toyota 2009 issue: The problem exists between steering wheel and chair.
"More often than not, drivers who reported that their accelerators were stuck were inadvertently flooring it and thinking they were pressing the brakes. Data from many of the “black boxes” from cars involved in incidents of unintended acceleration showed that in most cases, the brakes were never even touched."
Not everyone lives in the UK ;) although I still think that RIPA is in conflict with the ECHR as it guarantees a fair trial which inclused right to remain silent and not to incriminate oneself. See https://www.echr.coe.int/Documents/Guide_Art_6_criminal_ENG.pdf , p. 35.
My android phone is encrypted with a rather long password. When I boot into TWRP and don't supply the password, I see only garbled entries in the filesystem. So those tool can also get physical access and do bit-by-bit extraction. But the they will still be encrypted and hence useless. Or can they also break the encryption?
The general public's perception of AP is that it does all the work between take-off and landing? Then surely the passengers of a plane wouldn't have problems with pilot and co-pilot leaving the cockpit and getting drunk partying with the flight attendants while the AP is doing it's thing....
Oh wait... I guess passengers wouldn't be amused by such behaviour.
Why would he think that autopilot is named wronlgy? It comes from a plane. Planes had autopilots for decades. There are basic stupid autopilots that just maintain course, hight and speed. They don't take any evasive action etc. and they all require the pilot to be attentive. You wouldn't board a plane with autopilot and no pilot.
No matter what the autopilot should or should not do, no matter waht the truck was doing (e.g. merging, crossing the road, or anything else) there's no suggestion of any foul play on the part of the truck driver and yet - the driver DID NOT EVEN SEE IT --> despite the driver being legally obliged to put his full attention to the road and traffic.
Autopilot is the correct name for the system. Where do we know that term from? -> from planes.
Just imagine you being a passenger in a plane. Would you want the pilot and co-pilot to leave the cockpit, drink lots of booze and have party with the flight attendants, all the while the "autopilot" does the rest? I'm sure you wouldn't want that.
Also, traffic law still dictate that a driver needs to focus his whole attention on the traffic. So the "Drivers are supposed to keep their hands on the wheel, and remain prepared to take control, at all times when Autopilot is engaged." in the article is misleading. Its your legal duty to keep your hands on the wheel and focus your attention to the traffic and surrounding.
On my servers I use amce.sh as client for Let's Encrypt. It's a "simple" bash script with no real dependencies except openssl and curl/wget - so pretty much everywhere usable.... syntax is very simple and it also supports dns-01 (if you have a supported dns provider).
The certs issued I use for apache, postfix, dovecot, syncthing and other services. They work really fine.
I hardly ever use quick charging. At home I have Qi charger, at work I have Qi charger.... when I arrive at work, I put it on my Tylt.. it gets charged the whole day while I'm at work... when I'm back home, I put it on my Tylt... it gets charged all night long.... there's hardly ever a need to use quick charging myself :)
