Crowdstrike Cockup
  • Great write up, and I'm glad you were able to recover most of your servers after this incident.

  • Pointing fingers at the wrong crowd rule
  • Definitely a planned assassination attempt. Used as the rallying call for his supporters. The picture of him holding his fist up just after being shot at proved it; no one, I believe, would be able to muster that sort of gusto after having a real attempt on their life.

  • Comically underinformed rule
  • You mean the party known for lying and falsification didn't have an assassin plant meant to take the fall for the planned assassination attempt against the fascist presidential candidate in order to further bolster the support from his allies and voters?

    There's no way this wasn't staged. And quite frankly, if the repubs are allowed to make up stuff, so is everyone else.

  • Who could pass up this ballin' opportunity?
  • This is the real deal...

  • Crocs (The shoe, not the animal) 🐊
  • I was a Crocs hater for the longest time. Finally I needed some new shoes for doing tasks outside (gardening, etc) and on a whim got some Crocs. They're pretty comfy and very convenient to slip on real fast to go outside.

  • What is everyone's favorite coffee brand?
  • Shout-out to Red Rooster Coffee. They're an independent roaster out of Floyd, VA with some awesome coffees. Try the Old Crow Cuppa Joe!

  • How The Forbidden Fruit Became an Apple
  • Interesting video. I think I've heard of it as an apple growing up in a Christian household.

    Semi related, but I enjoy the Gnostic interpretation of the Forbidden Fruit story, in which the Serpent (aka Lucifer) tempts Eve with the fruit of knowledge to achieve Gnosis, so she may learn the true meaning of their existence (the understanding that God is not their true creator). This paints Lucifer as the hero and God, or Yaldabaoth in Gnosticism, as the villain.

  • Devs should not be "forced to run on a treadmill until their mental or physical health breaks", says publisher of Manor Lords, citing how gamers seem to be trained to expect endless content work now
  • Basically, yeah. If your game is in a playable state, launching in early access allows devs to get feedback from the community, who help shape the game all the way to the full release. Generally EA games are discounted, with the expectation that it isn't finished or polished, full of bugs, etc.

  • Fellas of Lemmy, what's your Every Day Carry (EDC)?
  • Oil-absorbing paper

    Sometimes I'll get so oily, I fear the United States is about to launch an invasion on me. Do you have a brand or kind you recommend? Those might benefit me.

  • Hello, me. Complete with the triple tap check...

  • Honestly, a very useful skill to learn. Thanks for the pitch!

  • Damn, maybe I need a pair. I have the same habit, including picking at nails. I always end up with a really shitty hangnail or bit of skin that stings.

  • I used to rock Cirkul 4 or 5 years ago but the last few flavors I tried tasted waaaay too artificial to me. I liked it pretty good until that point.

  • Who knew EDC could be so... Aesthetic! Thanks for sharing that link too, probably should have looked for that community before posting. But I like giving people a chance to talk about themselves a little. :)

  • Fellas of Lemmy, what's your Every Day Carry (EDC)?
  • I see we have an EDC enthusiast in the house ;)

    You reminded me that I've been needing to do up a car-trunk-kit, and this has given me some good ideas to boot. Thanks for sharing!

    I hadn't heard of this company before, these look awesome, and just what I may be looking for! I presume by your hyperlink that your experience has been positive?

    Those who don't identify as a fella also welcome to answer!

    I'm getting tired of my wallet and I'm hoping to get some new ideas. Current EDC is my phone, wallet, and keys on a lanyard. Whatchu got?

    Edit: I ought to be a little more specific with my EDC, since most people are kindly taking the time to do so.

    Phone: Pixel 8 Pro Wallet: bulky leather wallet, I don't even remember the brand, I've had it so long. Keys: a stylized lanyard with various house keys, car key fob, and a keychain that reads "I hope your day is as good as my butt" from my wife. I have to keep that, you understand.

    Misc: Burt's Bees chapstick, Listerine breath strips, and occasionally a utility knife depending on my destination.

    Spectrum Call Center in Charlotte, NC Reportedly Provided Fried Chicken and Watermelon to Employees for Juneteenth

    >“We want to acknowledge some feedback received regarding our Juneteenth celebration,” Pezzuto said in his letter obtained by The North Carolina Beat. “Although our intent was to celebrate this nationally recognized day, some of you voiced your concerns regarding the associated food choices.”

    In other words, we're sorry you were offended.


    More and more lately, I see more large companies in hot water for another significant data breach (Dropbox, AT&T). Will this become the norm?

    More specifically, are we seeing companies breached due to their (obvious?) security flaws, hackers getting better at what they do, or a combination of both?

    What is the future of security for these large companies that we put our trust into that our data is safe?


    I cannot stand these spam calls any more.

    (Picture alt text: a screenshot of my phone's call log, with numbers redacted (just in case). The phone numbers (except for one) are all spam calls)

    I'm not sure if this is the correct place for this, but I am at my limit with these.

    Constantly throughout the day I get spam call after spam call. I constantly report them to Google (I've got a Pixel 5, if it matters), yet nothing changes. This has been happening for months.

    These calls will also leave the exact same, completely silent, 4-second voicemails. I will block and report spam, but you know how it is. There's no way to turn voice mail notifications off, and I wouldn't necessarily want to, because I know I'd miss something genuine or important.

    What do I do? Is there anything I can do, beyond changing numbers? Even then, I'm sure a new number would exist in some database somewhere and be victim to more spam calls. This is heinous.

    Thanks for reading. I'm just so frustrated.

    Edit: this got a lot more attention than I anticipated. I appreciate the suggestions for different spam blockers and settings! It's also nice knowing I'm not alone. Hopefully, at least in the US, we'll get some real legislation eventually that will kill these spam calls once and for all.
