basically it's ln -s /path/to/link /path/to/link/target but for windows.
it lets me have steam installed where it wants to be in the file system (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam) but all it's files arent on my 200GB SSD, they're on my 3TB WD blue instead (path: C:\Storage\Program Files Ext\Steam because i also mounted the drive under C to avoid having another drive letter.)
Am I the only one who has to look up the manpage for ln every time to see which one is the link and which one is the target? Then create a link in current folder and realize that I had to use absolute paths. lns CLI interface is the father of gits.
Apparently, the nitwit said something along the lines that bugs were impossible because they programmed everything in machine code; any mistakes would make the program crash, so no crashes meant that everything had to be correct.
Well that's just bullshit.
I've known that both computing and banking are totally fucked as industries for a very long time.
Ideally, the trial should have gone something like:
Judge: "Clearly this is critical software, so it must have been written according to strict standards, passed extensive quality testing, and keep a log of all events. Is that correct?"
Prosecution: "Your honor, to be honest, we just kinda threw it together in two weeks."
Judge: "In that case, I declare the entire banking industry unfit for handling anyone's money. Case dismissed."
Isn't the whole point that the CPU is being monitored for memory access
By what? The attacker really has a very awkward attack surface at best, since they've got very little choice as to what code they can run to start with.
OTOH, I'm of the opinion that allowing the attacker to ever be able to specify code that is run (outside of whatever profiled sandbox you happen to think you might trust) is a pretty bad idea in the first place. The key problems are elsewhere; ASLR makes a class of attack harder to use, but it's still a band-aid on a disembowelling.
@TimeBandit Which proves what exactly? We all know that every platform has it holes. May I remind you that a few years ago that every SSL cert was fucked on a *nix system, but was fine on Windows machines ...
The sad part is, there were warning signs well before this that OpenSSL had issues.
The fact that it failed Valgrind tests because it was essentially reading uninitialized memory (which may or may not have old data) as an entropy source was a huge fucking clue.
And mind you, that was a known issue in 2008, 6 full years before Heartbleed.
It's not like there weren't alternatives, gnutls existed far before then.
Yes, all over the place. But it is actually not a WTF at all, because that is the only way to size several boxes to the size of the parent and still have some padding in them. Because CSS can't specify with of 10% - 20px.
it's easy to buy from Apple, their marketing is simple, clear, you don't have to choose from x different models which all differ in some weird numbers most people don't even understand.
Yup, I'm lying. Got me.
You win, I lose.
You're awesome. You're so great. You noticed this lie so perfectly, where everybody else failed, I'm impressed!
Now my WTDWTF persona is compromised forever. No one will take me seriously in the future. I'm done, I'm dead, I'm gone, I'm old news, I'm blowing in the wind, I'm done for, you did me in, you shot me oh ever so swiftly I didn't even get a chance to see where the bullet was coming from.
The reference in that song to "nineteen for me" is understating the reality of the time the song was written. At the time, the top rate of UK personal income tax was 97.5%, that is, thirty-nine for the tax man, but it would have sprung the rhythm...
