Hello internet friends!

I tried to block all “unsafe” traffic when using a public hotspot, but the web (including many of my own sites) are not prepared to handle a world in which port 80 is not allowed.
And because I am very smart I disabled my SSH host before going on this trip.

Meanwhile in news from the future that we’re living in:

Apple Music is confusing enough that even a big fan manages to destroy his music library with it. He’s famous enough that someone at Apple helped him, but not everybody has this option, do we?

It is possible to hack into cars and do serious damage.

And maybe, just maybe, we need a new model for journalism that doesn’t turn a medium-length ranty article into a 7MB monster.
I used to play games that simulated a whole season of Formula 1 that needed less space.

But hey, just small sidesteps on our way to becoming a Type I civilization, right?

Be safe.
