On the web, you can do other stuff while reading an article. On a BBS, get distracted and it will kick your ass off!

Like for real
it should be illegal to make someone call to cancel a recurring payment if you let them sign up for it online

These "By continuing to exist, you agree to our privacy policy" things just continue to get more and more ridiculous.

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir ( and on the board of Facebook.

I do not recommend using Brave.


Not sure if this is more of an Android Pie, or a Juice SSH issue...

I recently upgraded to a Pixel 3. I haven't been able to get Juice ssh to save homescreen shortcuts that link directly to tunnels and ssh connections, like I used to do on my old Galaxy S4.

I choose the option from the tunnel's/connection's context menu, it says "homepage shortcut created" (like it worked), but when I go out to the homescreen, there are no shortcuts/icons.

Decserver exploits.

Using the Mac IIsi to connect to the Decserver 200MC, then to a LAT service on a Raspberry Pi, then out over telnet / tcp/ip to a BBS to post about it.
