WTF Weekly for December 26, 2019

The Hacker Who Took Down a Country After the fiasco with Bloomberg’s apparently made-up story about embedded devices on computer logic boards, you may be loathe to trust anything they say about technology again, but this is a good one. Senate removes phrase ‘white nationalist’ from measure intended to screen military enlistees Now the argument […]

WTF Weekly for December 18, 2019

Well, it’s official – my migration from WordPress to Hugo has begun. I’m starting with my personal site, and the rest will eventually follow (including WTF Weekly).
