About the "security issue" on #VLC : VLC is not vulnerable.
tl;dr: the issue is in a 3rd party library, called libebml, which was fixed more than 16 months ago.
VLC since version 3.0.3 has the correct version shipped, and @MITREcorp@twitter.com did not even check their claim.
@hiddensoul Ham radio for sure! These are probably the only remaining area of customer electronics which is not designed with a "DO NOT SERVICE" mindset...
So I am training my fish, I have already got them trained that when I tap the top cover and open it they come uo for food now just before that I am setting the colour changing lights Green. I am ONLY using green for feeding time not for mood effects, that hope is that in a few weeks they will associate green with food
A more literal example, I literally do gardening for a living. I get paid $15/hr to pull weeds while listening to podcasts all day, because rich people hate being outside and touching dirt. This shit is not that hard. Any dumbfuck with enough fingers left to hold a shovel can do it. And yet I am still paid what is, to me, a comparatively stupid amount of money, because rich people spend cash like they breathe air.

make sure when discussing strikes, make sure to not treat people who rely on these services as scabs (disabled people who may be homebound who have to do shopping online) vs people who can and have the privilege to support strikes. Suggest alternatives to them but don't blame them when corporations prey on disabled people when they create these services that become integral to them.
War On Drugs and medical weed
The war on drugs where do I start... I have chronic pain and for years I was taking cannabis by smoking. I would smoke a gram or a stick, most people would smoke this in one sitting maybe with a friend to get stoned.
. I would cut it with 2 cigarettes and then use a water pipe, bone to smoke it. A gram and two cigarettes would last me 24 hours and it was costing me about AUD90 a week.
I was not smoking to get stoned just to manage the pain, anyway due to circumstances I would rather not get in to here including it being illegal in Australia I gave it up.
Now I am on 3 different types of opiates and valium (Diazepam) and then I also need laxatives as the opiates cause me to bind up and then there are also other side effects that I did not have when I was smoking a few cones...
I am worse of from the prescription drugs and they do not do as good a job as weed did..
So a group of students spray-painted cars at a school overnight, the took the time to cover their faces with hoodies and masks but didn't think of the phones they had that automatically connected to the school's wifi and they then got identified by the MAC address of the devices
So I have been setting up my house with google smart devices. I have 5 Home Minis, one in the lounge, one in the radio shack, one in the master bedroom, one in the bathroom and one in the second bedroom.

#relationships... I need hep, In the middle of an argument with my partner they told me I was right what the hell do I do now ?

I am not a coder I am a hack, I am more into the hardware side of things and see software and coding as a necessary evil.
