    Bonsai Herbs

    Bonsai Herbs

    Eric pulls out the BBQ, taunting the Rain Gods. Jon checks on his bees and deserves a third wire. Hackers lure folks with AI promises from hijacked social accounts while a software supply chain narrowly avoids a big oopsie. Eric dips his toes in hydroponic herb gardening while Jon eyes smart contact lenses (and narrowly avoids an April Fools oopsie).

    Robust Investigation

    Robust Investigation

    Eric gets back home from vacation and Jon (tries to) defy range anxiety in his new car. Google has a proposed settlement for their harvesting of incognito browsers and the big AT&T breach has 'encrypted' PINs but are easily reversed. The first Neuralink transplant recipient pulls an all nighter playing Civ6, and we (may) have a record number of bee colonies in the US.

    Taunting Spring

    Taunting Spring

    Pi day, wasps about, new 3d printer, Dune 2, and a bee update. Stroustrup objects to the characterization of (modern) C++ as unsafe (but are any projects in C++ fully modern??), Apex Legends tourney participants forced to cheat, swappers come for the eSIMs, and your connected car is probably selling your driving behavior data to insurance companies. For fun we have a sick tulip identification and eradication robot and the Voyager 1 was POKEd in early March and is returning its FDS memory for analysis.

    I'm Not Confused

Jon is giddily gearing up for bee season and educates Eric on Yellowjackets. Roku discovers what its user accounts are worth on the dark web and Jon needs to update his QNAP. Again. The British Library is under-appraised the consequences of a cyber attack. Learning to program a computer is similar to learning a spoken language and Jon shares plans on how to build a Langstroth Hive.

    3d Printer Brick

    3d Printer Brick

    Eric's 'things are breaking' woes continue and Jon has a nice trip to UW. Info stealers are targeting ChatGPT creds, beware cheap IOT devices (like that's new advice), and Anycubic's cloud MQTT service is hacked (or misconfigured). Bumblebees exhibit cumulative culture (!!), Eric says to watch Resident Alien, and Colossal scientists manage to induce pluripotent (asian elephant) stem cells in their quest to resurrect mammoths.
