lol. Will democrats actually try to fix vote counting in the US now, or will they keep saying that anyone who suggests that there are problems is trying to "undermine trust in the democratic process"?

You just need ONE broken #CA on the planet, specifically just ONE private key lost without disclosure, to impersonate ANY website.

Now think about the whole world and give an estimate of how many times this happened already.

This is how secure #HTTPS is.

@benjancewicz Keep in mind that there are some complications with ranked voting systems [1], and that people have put the effort in to design systems that are really good [2].

@kaniini Are your pen and paper hand-counted or optical scan? Optical scan machines are the absolute best hacking target, since most people don't even know they *should* be watching them for shenanigans.

#golang, or, how Google geniuses ignored 20 years of compiler design, removed any feature they considered the average programmer too fucking stupid to understand, and still ended up with a language where nil != nil

A cry of “fake news” is making the rounds concerning the Chinese supplychain attack against Supermicro reported by Bloomberg.

Bloomberg reports all official statements (nationstates & corporations) deny the attack.

Supply Chain Attacks are feasible (tough but feasible) and make logical sense. Plenty of motive for plenty of actors.

If it is widespread, there’s plenty of opportunity for corroboration.

Time to crack open your own #Supermicro and have a look see!

I just ordered an RPLidar A2. I bet a solid state 2D lidar for under $50 will come out next year. I better actually do something with this one before that happens.
