Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: Simulated reality

One of the weird things about the simulation hypothesis is that if it's true, then our lives have objective meaning

Also, a simulated universe is definitely the product of intelligent design.

ME: I am more then just a data point in a bell curve.
GOD: Don't make me tap the graph.

God hasn't warned anyone about anything since the bronze age.  Can you blame him?  Do monkeys listen?  The fuck they do.
First, Moses dropped half the "tablets". Then we did away with the comandments dictating how we should relate to "the one". Now, now we can hardly even deal with each-other. Go figure.

I know I said yoink a long time ago but here's a thing
Takeaway: everyone reading this should open an exit node, and, only boot virtual on non state-sponsored OSs. The latter condition currently precludes tor, so. :horrormirth:

If this were a simulation, Eris would not exist.

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?

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.
