thank you for this headline USA Today

Fact check: Tom Hanks is now a Greek citizen, but pedophilia has nothing to do with it

HENCE WHY FOREVER ALONE
 
I saw the date today, and all day I thought "I'm sure it's someone's birthday today but I can't remember who". I began to worry that my mental faculties were in decline.

Imagine my relief when I logged into NZGames to realise it was actually Savage who was getting old!

Happy birthday bro

That Brenton Tennat is going away for a long time. Or was it Tenton Bennet? Fenton Mennit? Ten Ben? I dunno, not a name I'll ever remember.

TBH I was hoping to not see the guys face or name in the news, but they're both there in the article on Stuff.

NZX down for third day in a row, following another cyber attack

I wonder how long this will go on for? The obvious speculation is this is to do with the sentencing in Christchurch going on, given the timing. But that could be a cover I suppose.

Its been in there for a long time. Maybe since he was officially charged or something.
News outlets only did the "not mentioning his name" when the hype was still high with the case.

I'd say its an easy target. Whatever happens, short of a government enquiry we will never know.

Mmmm the bias is strong with this assertion. What do you base this on?

Puzzled a bit as to why their DDoS border protection didn't help (or did they not have any?)

What I'm also confused about is how a DDoS attack can make the stock ticker on Courtney Place flip to Euro-Trance mode?

Listen to these chaps every week! Next week might have some details?

Um - did RocketLab get Biggus Dickus in to commentate on that launch?

(And they made him say "Successful separation!")

Actually, that was probably a bit harsh. Well done on a quick return to flight chaps.

We all make mistakes. It's easy to look down one's nose when one has twenty years of scar tissue built up from making similar mistakes, especially when - at least in my case - all my big fuckups were in the pre-social-media era and they were easy to bury.

A 20-year-old who knows nothing, meh. A 40-year-old who thinks that he/she knows everything, rage.

Preach, shit happens and it's easy enough to make a mistake like this.

Just last night I was discussing with an old colleague some of our own past hilarious mistakes (which were certainly not hilarious at the time) - e.g. rebooting a Citrix server with 50+ user sessions, or a production hypervisor instead of one of the VMs hosted on said hypervisor

With the new console generation upon us, I have finally decided that I will not buy a PS4 or an XBOne. So for the first time since the 8-bit years, I have fully skipped an entire console generation.

If Spotify thinks it's going to disrupt the podcast world, it bloody well better implement a 1.5x 2x feature. and while at it add a skip silence, and compression / autogain feature. You know, like every other podcast app.

the ultimate would be the inclusion of reverb removal, de-noise, and auto-eq optimised for speech transmission index...Spotify may be the first to actually make money from podcasts, so here's hoping they implement killer audio processing on even the worst podcast guests (ie on their laptop, in a laundromat, sitting 2m away from the microphone)
