Just so I remember for the future;

Even though Adobe warn people off installing or using Flash, Windows 10 installs Adobe Flash player, then keeps downloading updates for it, and the only way to stop this is to download, separately, the Adobe Flash uninstaller package.

I assume around December Windows will automatically uninstall Flash.

Watching old Glastonbury performances has taught me that I am the kind of person who will shout 'focus!' at the TV.

I'm sorry Samsung Pay can erase what now?!?

I'm sure that the intention here is to protect the user, but really, no you may not do that.

Pretty sure the android permission system is built against this kind of behaviour, too.

So far we've seen...

$ git ass -A

One of those 'North face' brand baseball caps, except the brim bit always rotates towards the magnetic North Pole.

My 6-year-old laptop makes a pretty good work-from-home machine, all things considered. It's still fast, can run all my business applications, and battery life is still over 5 hours of normal use.

Finding it difficult to justify buying a new one. The only thing this is missing is a TPM, but I might be able to mitigate that with software and smart cards.

2015: NIST concludes that 2FA via SMS is not sufficiently secure.

2019: Most UK banks begin compulsory rollout 2FA via SMS for online services.

Regrettably, this is still more secure than ever before.

Can we hurry up and switch everything over to IPv6, so I can stop talking about about split-DNS and NAT-reflection, please.
