Pre-scriptum:
By this insistence on the word "console" I predict that you operate in a windows environment.
Hardly.  The last Microsoft OS I have significant experience was Windows 98.  Then I spent a couple years with RedHat, until I developed a deathly hatred for RPM, after which I switched to Gentoo, which I have been using ever since.  They let me use it at work, too, although most of my co-workers use Ubuntu.

From what I gather, 14665 does not require physical access and has been executed via SSH:
"OpenBSD #0day Xorg LPE via [...] 665 can be triggered from remote SSH"
—@HaXOrFantastique

My initial reading on the subject was focussed on Linux, where it appears to be a local-only exploit, but on further searching, it appears that it can be remotely triggered on OpenBSD.  I partially retract my initial glibness.
what would make BSD remove that line of code from BSD update!

Hey guys, new (2 yo., via xorg) Linux BSD bug gives you root with one simple command:
CVE-2018-14665

I don't worry too much about exploits that require console access.  Unless the admin is paranoid, physical access is enough to hack most linux boxes with no more than a reboot.  Just set init=/bin/bash in the bootloader, and you're in.
you could remotely ssh and escalate any user to root without physical access or reboot privs. or, is ssh considered physical access?

So, my search for a new laptop within bounds of practical reason keeps returning zero. from this I deduce the proximity of some kind of tectonic shift... isnt having like 9 (nine) cpu's an oxymoron or something?

All the crazy in the world right now is part of a global immunization effort to prepare humans for their next evolutionary 'leap.'

Rand Paul's wife says she keeps loaded gun by her bed over fear of liberals https://www.newsweek.com/paul-wife-loaded-gun-liberal-attacks-1160029

Quote
“We’ve updated all of our security systems at home. I sleep with a loaded gun by my bed. I’m home alone a lot, obviously when Rand is [in Washington], and so I’ve got deadbolts all around my house so that if someone’s in my house when I go to bed I’m deadbolted in three different levels,” Paul told Breitbart for an interview published Monday.

She also commented about the recent rash of protestors heckling prominent politicians at restaurants in Washington. The most recent example was Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and his wife last month as protestors forced the couple to leave a restaurant after chants against Cruz’s support of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
At least, at least "any sea-dwelling mammal can actually sleep with half a brain."

Dumpster dove some Quadro k6000.  Dunno if any work because my damn power supply is short a cable  :argh!:


My luck though is they're actually fried.

Could just be an ity bity resistor? Give us a ring next time, we have all diving certifications.

Oh yeah, for sure it would be overkill and then some.  But for such a small price difference, I thought I'd mention the option.
I for one appreciate knowing that that might be overkill— at least now I know which way is up. its frankly disorienting, this technology is.


Many prospects here.
I like.

Cain/E.O.C:
Yeah, I still dont understand GPU's very well. when I'm doing neural nets tho, I know I need about 4Gigs, at least thats what works on the desktop.

I did a quick and dirty price comparison, and a GTX 680 4GB only costs around $40 less than a GTX 1060, which is listed as 3GB but is effectively 16GB of virtual RAM.  Given the difference, I would go for the latter as the price difference is negligible but having more VRAM is always nice - it will allow you to do other things while the neural nets work away.
Current Status: Well, at least 1080 is divisible by pi. Thar goes my future in IT and liberal democracy.

Ty for the specs. For the commercial OS, I'm prolly still gonna have to do a hackintosh, because I dont see being able to migrate back to windows anytime soon. cant even think about /usr/local.

So, instead, today I bought some chains at the hardware store, to which I can still somewhat relate. Oh, and now I need broadband or Mr. Thiel is gonna pull me over.

Modded Unix, uncle mac, you mean apple shite?

Yeah they mold all their components, and inject with plastic save a mm in space, kill the heat profile of the device, you can never repair a faulty component, it forces users to replace the whole thing. I've been apple free since 2016 when I got rid of itunes, haven't had their hardware since 2014. Have never looked back.

if I may be so bold, could you be kind enough to tell us what you run?
(I did enjoy osX's free bsd kernel and bash shell)
(I might just get a 2017 and run a linux box)

[edit 0]
IIRC some noob now owns git. so i feel a smidge less sure of myself.

Q) Dear Axod, why is your knowledge of hardware so deplorable?
A) Internet porn, Sir.

I thought that his mis-represenation of the truth during his hearing would count against him. Now it seems like they were testing for that as a qualification to play in the highest court... in my days, they would have given /him/ the polygraph, not her.

World population now at levels which cannot be contained within the limits of novelty's manifold. This results in novelty compression protocols that make several individuals share the same (identical) experience of novelty. This results in a whole new wave of identity politics that takes the manifold itself by surprise (in a good way)
