THIS is why clown hosted DNS is never a good idea for ANY largish business.. host it yourself or just use paper and telephone :)
"Curve. finance had their DNS hijacked in the past hour. Hacker put a malicious contract on the home page. When the victim approved the contract, it would drain the wallet. Damage is around $570k so far. We are monitoring." ( text stolen from @cz_binance on tweeter)

@jeff_schmidt here in Cobb County, we take great pride in paying for pointless things to protect our kids rather than dealing with the actual issue: ajc.com/news/atlanta-news/afte

Actually, it is better called a WC (Water Closet) which is the anagram of CW, so....what were we talking about again?

Not sure folk are aware that using Google fonts by URL in their CSS undermines the privacy of each and every site visitor, sending their IP to GG with every visit. How? Because with each visit they download the font from GG, not your server.

If you will use GG fonts, don't do this

@import url('fonts.googleapis.com/css?famil[...]

Download that font, and resource it locally instead

@font-face {
font-family: FontName';
font-style: normal;
src: url('../fonts/FontName.woff2');
[...]
}

In folklore, you needed to get rid of nail and hair clippings, those could give a witch or sorcerer power over you.
We have this now with our electronic clippings, we give our clippings to social networks and that gives a whole heap of power to them and to the buyers of that data who can then analyse it.

FUCK YOU and your war on scrollbars!! Give me back a practical user interface!!!

So if you write an article and give image credits, you don't credit the place you found it, you credit the SOURCE.

Stealing an image, and pointing to a place that has also stolen that image isn't how it works.

If you find an image you'd like to use, you check to see if this is the original source of the image.

If it is, then see if there are any usage rights shown - and follow them.

If there aren't any, you contact the publisher and ask permission to use the image.

internet of tractors in time of war 

In a parallel universe, where John Deere is a Russian company, those UA farmers can't tow away those tanks. If they didn't disconnect in time or they've accidentally enabled the connection, there is no more towing for them. With everything on the internet, they've got a #TowBan and a #PlowBan

We're not in that universe, so we only have a #RepairBan, but are you sure you want to give up on your popcorn in time of war? #InternetOfTargets #IOT
