The car key

keyBananas has been watching a youtube channel in which the ‘secure’ individual key has been diminished by as this authorised agent tries various keys to find he has one that opens doors and switches on the car.  Most of these cars are american made but it does raise a question.

European cars seem more secure provided you cannot sniff the wireless protocol.

In England the Metropolitan police here London once ‘lost’ a set of universal car keys in the past and these where known to have entered criminal society.

a number

I guess with enough patience and a vin a spare set of keys could be easily made.

Think about it.

bulkanized new tlds

renHave heard of .ren ? or Renren Inc – apparently it is a chinese social media thing not skincare which made it an odd sighting in the mail.log

Anyhow i am none the wiser but i do wonder if this use of .ren breaks the icann rules of the global top level domain i mean the zoo is not in China.  If somebody can pass this along to the great firewall f china team it be most appreciated.

 

the radium girls,Kate Moore

raduimisbn: 97814711533877  is a bit girly, our freshly minted author is described on the back as as

a rupert murdoch bestseller (my blog) and ghostwriter come playwright

So not a real bestselling author.  At times its very pro social justice warrior and blame science attitude when if it was honest would point the blame at on the handling of the radioactive material in the us not the nature of the beast.

readybrekIt deals with the glow in the dark (readybrek? – porridge) illuminated watch dial painters c1915 in the US, so european industrial handling was much better.

These american people glowed before there jaws fell off.

SJW’s complain about a lot of things and the use of girl is prevalent through this book, I suppose girl means victim right on sisters and fuck that equality shit.

Sogo webmail lethargy

mehIs part of gandi* update and its buzzwordy with a zeg demo (my blog) and various distro install methods – even i had google what zeg was.

I did not have most requirements its very 64bit – and so it failed to compile.

Oddly there pretending to be the zoo – Probably not pork product spam then.

Pachinko,Min Jin Lee

isbn: 9781786691354 is a american korean author who i never read before, south korean literature when i can get it (my blog) can be good.

Despite its time in the 1920’s tbis multi generational tale is readable without falling into the traps of victim literature.  Overall it starts to fail in 1950 and that is where i began to loose interest.

Perhaps non fiction wold have been better.  1/5 bananas

 

Nobody gets fired for buyng Microsoft

Friends of the nhs

The nhs (my blog) is seen as a nice gravy train by firms like Oracle and Microsoft where there ‘products’ are not up to the job

Microsoft email is thoroughly shit there is the classic story of the large email list in the nhs that if anybody replies to all costs about £300,000.00 per email due to some ‘bug’ in exchange.

Ransomware is the latest find that exploits Microsoft failure to not defend against but since the exploit was known by both gchq and the nsa (my blog and not passed on you could argue that the government is ransoming itself by keeping mum.

I am not saying there is a perfect solution even assuming that this was not an inside job but it points the failure in any reasoning that Microsoft is enterprise software.

Since it is so insecure perhaps the people who buy Microsoft products should be given medals and awards by governments for allowing mass interception of data.

I am sure the management of the nhs would like that

Professors ne’er-do-wel experience

Pretending being a lion

Pretending being a lion

A ne’er-do-wel is somebody who sucks the life out of an experience – some are easy to spot and others have a veneer of fake and Professor here in the told us an amusing story about some seemingly nice people who did not have the same values.

The hire car was done on the cheap, no spare car seats so yes it was car for x people but without anything else in it, and ignore the facts that you also have luggage,  the reputability of the insurance is a point also deemed invalid although it perhaps was best that it was not tested which was a start.

Others involved with Prof soon wised up the the ne’er-do-wel and it soon became tense.

It sounded funny to us secondhand, but i am sure it became grating.

Professor learnt a lesson (at a un-recovered cost) so there’s hope for you humans.

It is something that will not happen again to him.

King Charles III (bbc version)

King Charles III was a play that you probably needed to sell both kidneys for to see live (my blog) and the desire to see it meant that it was something i had heard of but did not bother with.

However somebody who did sell both kidneys and works for bbc saw it and made it into a drama on the bbc.

Prince Charles and Diana

Most of my views on Charles* (my blog) remain unchanged from before i saw it and it says what i think eg Charles is not fit for the position to become head of state for his deeds so far..

How much truth here is something i do not know or care about but i enjoyed the output for being thoughtful and provoking.

5/5 bananas go find it.

*Charles (wikipeadia) is an unfortunate name for king’s – I have a film review (my blog) and another that one day i will post.
