Yea, leave my car for 8-12 hours unattended at a 7-11, that's the ticket.

Why on earth would you leave it for 8-12 hours? Just so that noone else can charge there or what?

I have never thought that I needed a 120Hz screen, maybe I am too old to see any difference. I will be upgrading my XS to 13 when it will be available but I hope I can turn off the 120Hz feature to increase battery life.

Yeah... I would not recommend to delay these updates. I can't be bothered to micro-manage the individual components and I haven't had any issues whatsoever with the Windows patches yet. This particular issue has been fixed already with a patch from Microsoft anyway.

From the source article:
As April's Windows 10 KB5001330 update fixes over 100 security vulnerabilities, including actively exploited and publicly disclosed vulnerabilities, it is strongly advised that users not uninstall this update.

I am not so sure staying 3 months behind with the updates is a good strategy, but you do you.

It isn't good for anything except criminals
Actually.. not that much

Cash is still king for criminal activity. The only time I have used cash in the last 10 years is to pay contractors under the table for small jobs (i.e. used it for illegal activity). I can't think of any other use for it actually.

Can't wait for DV's Dune! Anyone else all stoked 'n stuff?


I am trying to stay grounded, but it's difficult to not get excited about Denis version of Dune. I loved the whole Dune book series as a teenager, loved the 80's movie and I love every movie that I have seen from Denis Villeneuve (especially Blade runner 2049).

Match made in heaven

I use a Keepass file with a long password that I store on Dropbox, and use the standard Keepass client on windows and KeePassium on iOS. This setup works for me. I dislike all browser extensions, consider them to be a major security hazard.

The iPhone KeePassium app has paid monthly tier and a one time purchase options, but I haven't hit any limits on the free version so I just use that.

But the jackpot isn't any higher. The jackpot isn't the price of bitcoin, it is the amount of USD the companies can afford. The companies have to buy the bitcoins with dollars.

The article also references "the prevalence" of threat email over the summer of 2020, at the time when the price of bitcoin was very low!

I am not sure if you are being serious yourself, because this is just stupid.

If you run an extortion operation you will set a price tag like a normal business. If you think the company is willing to pay $100 000 then that is the price you ask them to pay, converted to bitcoin (or preferably to another cryptocurrency which is less traceable).
Do you think if the price of bitcoin went down to $100 they would just stop the DDoS extortions, instead of, you know, set the price to ₿1000?

As Bitcoin price surges, DDoS extortion gangs return in force

Why on earth would the price of bitcoin have any effect on DDoS extortion, this is just silly!

And no one has the PB&J as a state sandwich? That's gotta' be one of the most popular sandwiches on the planet!
I am not so sure it is the most popular on the planet, PB&J sandwich is very much a North American thing.

Completely off topic for anything.. but I was wondering if anybody knows what happened to Creston? He commented pretty much daily until December 2019 and not a word after that!

I am such a chicken, I don't think I could play such an intense and atmospheric game in VR. I really really want to so I would probably buy and never dare to play it.

The basic steps would be:
1. Create an account at an exchange, go through KYC procedures
2. Transfer your bitcoin to a deposit bitcoin address that the exchange will provide. Since this is an on-chain transaction it will cost around $7 to be in the next block, less if you are willing to wait.
3. Sell your bitcoin to other participants on market for a 0.25% transaction fee or less (depends on exchange and if you are a maker or taker)
4. USD withdrawal from the exchange to your bank account, fee depends on payment method but expect $5 to $35

My BSOD errors have always been hardware related, don't know if Win 10 will do some magic. But worth a shot to upgrade if it is still free. I have had 0 issues with Win 10 and now that 7 is out of service then I would not want to be running it.
