How do we know? didn't she say she deleted them all?

How do we know? it got "accidentally" erased.

The immovable object versus the unstoppable force: How the tech boys club remains exclusive

Social engineering does not work.

Youll just destroy the West's ability to compete with sane societies that don't shackle their productivity like that.

Want more women at the top?? That is a goal worthy for you? great! teach your children to be ambitious and not want participation trophies.

How many times must we repeat those mistakes? why won't the writer learn from the Scandinavian experiment? the more they forced Women to be like Men, the stronger the lash back got.

Female-free speaker list causes PHP show to collapse when diversity-oriented devs jump ship

Idiocracy at its best

I guess soon all development of PHP (and other projects) will halt until the commit level of female programmers will be at 50%.

What a suicide pact!

Couldn't they ask some of their male programmers to identify, for that day, as females??

How four rotten packets broke CenturyLink's network for 37 hours, knackering 911 calls, VoIP, broadband

Why would a node agree to forward a broadcast packet? Are there legitimate internet (vs intrAnet) broadcasts packets?

Python joins movement to dump 'offensive' master, slave terms

Sure only talk about Ameica re slavery,

Whats(goes)App must come down... World in shock as Zuck decides to intertwine Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp

Talk in Trump's tweets tells whether tale is true: Code can mostly spot Prez lies from wording

..And yet, he keeps making tood trade deals with the rest of the world, progressing with N. Korea..

When did it become a demand, that your country's leader is not allowed to use tricks and deceptions to get its goals? would YOU ever agree to negotiate a deal by telling, in advance, all the facts and truths? Is so, I'd really like to buy your used car... I'd simply ask you what is your 'red line' price, you you would, of courses, tell me the truth, because that is what you demand from political enemies?

TSMC chip fab tools hit by virus, payment biz BGP hijacked, CCleaner gets weird – and more

Re: It has several background services

Answering myself - I haven't noticed that launching CCleaner starts 2 ccleaner64.exe processes.. the 2nd remains behind to do the spying and keep try startup installation

gal5

It has several background services

Blocked CCleaner on firewall.

BUT, it does something else, too - anvir keeps popping warnings about CCleaner trying to install a startup item (which I keep sending to Quarantine), probably the tool to collect info.

Big Question is, how does it do that, when IT IS NOT RUNNING?? searched with msconfig for anything by piriform.. nothing

(command line is

"C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /MONITOR

Mozilla hired their executioner? time will tell.

Zuckerberg thinks he's cyber-Jesus – and publishes a 6,000-word world-saving manifesto

How about starting simple - stop draining mobile batteries in the background? Just the amount of batteries replaced due to facebook app drain is doing a lot of damage.
