One of my favourite books!

QT jamestplunkett: I just stumbled on EM Forster’s The Machine Stops. Published in 1928. It’s about a distant future in which humanity lives in physically isolated cells, communicating only by video link, controlled by an omniscient global technology platform. This is the opening scene.

I have no idea how he could recognise them but my Portuguese butcher assured me that both of these chickens were called Frango.

A vulnerability has been discovered in Cisco Small Business, Smart, and Managed Switches, which could allow for a denial-of-service condition. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could allow an attacker to cause the switches' management CLI to stop responding.

QT TonyaJoRiley: New: A popular fertility app with more than half a million users was sharing user data without consent or the ability to opt-out, @IDACwatchdog found. The app stopped sharing the data with one third-party after The Post reached out.

Hi, Pouhiou here, I've just bstarted my day of work (for Framasoft) and I read you toot: thank you!

To some extent we also need to drop the idea that folks are selfish and convenience is king. Facebook isn't easy to use for everyone, but it's the main system of communication with friends and family some people have. Same with Gmail. It's why what @Framasoft does is important. The chatons network of providers is young. These things take time, and we need to be patient. It did take years for Facebook to grow with the resources it had.
