CrowdStrike broke Debian and Rocky Linux months ago, but no one noticed
  • That is not accurate.

    • RedHat is the standard for high-budget American corps.
    • Rocky and similar for low-budget American orgs
    • Ubuntu Server has a large following with developers who think they don't need sysadmins.
    • Debian Stable is more popular with European orgs that aren't incentivized by US government contracts to go with Redhat. It is much more stable than Ubuntu, has been more reliable in its support promises than Redhat, and doesn't suffer from the NIH syndrome that infects both.
    • Ubuntu is popular with home users
    • Debian Testing is good for workstations and personal machines that need to be a bit more current
    • Debian Unstable for people who like Debian but want to live on the bleeding edge
  • DNC moving forward with Biden virtual nomination; voting to begin no sooner than August 1
  • I stand corrected - Alabama is apparently exactly like Ohio in this case. Both originally had filing deadlines that came before the DNC, and both passed legislation to extend the deadline.

    Not sure how I missed that before, but thank you for pointing it out.

  • DNC moving forward with Biden virtual nomination; voting to begin no sooner than August 1
  • There is no "places like Ohio" - Ohio was the only one. And they passed legislation this year to move the filing deadline back explicitly to accommodate the DNC. So that argument doesn't hold water at this point.

    Edit: See below for correction

  • FBI cracks phone belonging to Trump rally shooting suspect
  • At the nation-state level with an ex-president target, pumping heated liquid through the arteries of a dead body isn't much of an obstacle.

    Probably not actually what they did, but seriously people - a single biometric security factor is not going to secure anything when a government has the body and actually cares about getting in.

  • Columbia University suspends three deans for 'antisemitism' in private text messages
  • No need to - "gay bashing" is unambiguous and hasn't been used for decades to describe criticism of gay gangs that go around clubbing trans people to death.

    Acknowledging that Zionists have robbed the word "antisemitic" of its meaning is the first step in reclaiming the word. The second step is to use other words to describe actual antisemitism so that people understand it still exists. The third is to refuse to allow Zionists to continue conflating anti-Zionism with antisemitism.

    You asked how to describe it, and I engaged with you in good faith to provide an answer. You responded with a second rhetorical device, and I engaged for the benefit of other readers. I won't bother a third time.

    [Edit: I removed the last paragraph after initially posting, being unsure I was responding to the same user in both cases. When I re-added it after confirming, I used slightly different language. Their quote of "rhetorical trick" below matches the original wording, and is a legitimate quote of my response]

  • To serve his country, Donald Trump should leave the race | Editorial Board
  • We expect biden to.

    No we don't. Some of us believe there's a shadow of a prayer he might be pushed into it by Democrat party leaders and his own advisors, but even the politicos calling for his withdrawal have been clear that they expect him to lurch his way to an electoral disaster.

  • ‘The Movement to Convince Biden to Not Run Is Real’
  • I see the down votes, but I took this as a Wag the Dog reference. They're pointing out just how terrible an idea it is for Biden and the democrats to keep trying to sleepwalk through this election while Trump and the republicans pull out all the rhetorical stops.

  • Israel rescues four hostages in operation Palestinian officials say killed more than 200 people Google News

    The Israeli military rescued four hostages in a special operation in the Nuseirat refugee camp, central Gaza, that Gazan authorities said killed 210 people and injured more than 400 others.

    Noa Argamani, Almog Meir Jan, Andrey Kozlov, and Shlomi Ziv, were rescued by the Israeli military, intelligence and special forces from two separate locations in Nuseirat, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said Saturday.

    All four were kidnapped from the Nova music festival on October 7.

    “They are in good medical condition and have been transferred to the ‘Sheba’ Tel-HaShomer Medical Center for further medical examinations,” the IDF added.

    An Israeli policeman from a special counter-terrorism unit was killed in Saturday’s rescue operation, according to Israeli police.

    News of the rescue came soon after Israel’s military said it was operating in Nuseirat and other areas of central Gaza, where heavy shelling and artillery fire was reported.

    At least 210 people have been killed as a result of the rescue operation, the Government Media Office in Gaza said Saturday.

    The killed and wounded are arriving at two hospitals in Gaza, Al-Awda Hospital in Nuseirat and Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir Al-Balah, the media office added.

    CNN is not able to independently verify the media office numbers.

    Nidal Abdo, was shopping in Nuseirat on Saturday when he described a “crazy bombardment” hitting.

    “There are children torn apart and scattered in the streets, they wiped out Nuseirat, it is hell on earth,” he said.

    Another local, Abu Abdallah, said the strike hit while people were sleeping, adding: “Dogs were eating people’s remains. We pulled out six martyrs, all torn up children and women, we risked our lives to get them to the hospital.”

    Hamas described the operation as a “heinous crime” in a press release Saturday, saying the Israeli military “committed a horrific massacre against innocent civilians.”

    Hostage rescues are rare: this is only the third such successful operation. IDF Corporal Ori Megidish was rescued in October last year from the northern Gaza Strip. In another operation on February 12 this year, Fernando Marman and Louis Har were rescued from southern Rafah.

    One of the group, 25-year-old Noa Argamani, became one of the symbols of the October 7 attacks, after video emerged of her seen shouting and pleading from the seat of a motorbike as a group of Hamas fighters drive away with her in tow.

    In the video, Argamani’s boyfriend, fellow Israeli citizen Avinatan Or, is also led away and kidnapped by Hamas fighters.

    Noa’s mother Liora Argamani is a Chinese citizen who has been grappling with late stage brain cancer. In a video released last November, she made a desperate plea to be able to see her daughter one more time.

    “I don’t know how long I have left. I wish for the chance to see my Noa at home,” her mother said, calling on US President Joe Biden to push for her daughter’s release.

    Argamani’s family had previously received signs that she was still alive. She appeared in a series of Hamas propaganda videos released in January this year.

    Video showed Argamani embracing her father after her release. She also held a phone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who told her “we didn’t give up on you for a moment.”

    Of the others freed:

    Almog Meir Jan, 22, is from the small city of Or Yehuda, outside Tel Aviv. He was due to start a new job at a technology company on October 8.

    Shlomi Ziv, 41, was working as a security guard at the Nova festival when he was kidnapped on October 7. Ziv had been living in the local moshav or agricultural settlement for 17 years with his wife Miren.

    Andrey Kozlov, 27, is a Russian citizen who move to Israel a year ago. He was also working as a security guard at the Nova festival.

    Rescuing hostages taken during the Hamas attacks of October 7 remains a major goal of the Israeli military campaign in Gaza.

    Following Saturday’s announcement, the total number of hostages still held in the Gaza Strip from October 7 is now 116, of which at least 41 are dead.
