      I’m in a barber shop and a man in his 50s just asked for a “Donald Trump style haircut”. The barber is trying to formulate a reply.

        @33mhz now if you’re talking something that maintains silent connections like the pairing between your phone and tablet, those usually have better security with random pin codes and such @jws @morrick

          @33mhz you have to be within range of the device during the few seconds it’s in pairing mode, and then you stole the pair so the user’s device doesn’t work. They re-pair to fix it and your evil connection gets dropped. @jws @morrick

            @jws it’s one of those usability / security trade offs, and as scary as it appears it’s not a bad one imo :) @33mhz @morrick

                      It’s stunning how much both Microsoft and Apple have changed in the few years since their new CEOs took control. Best examples ever of how critical it is to select the right successor, and how their vision (or lack of) can completely reshape big companies.

                        @jdscolam This is fixed. My bad. It's still not up to date but at least the history is there. Will fix up to date soon.

                          @jdscolam I think, perhaps, that’s not gonna be fixed. I’ll see what kind of workaround I can hack together…

                            My guess for Elon Musk’s announcement? He snuck some Martian hardy seeds and a webcam onto Schiaparelli. Mention of Tesla was just a ruse. 😉

                              PSA: When looking up that command line option you forgot, "tar man [www.google.ca]" returns somewhat different search results from "man tar [www.google.ca]".

                                @berg Hello! Any idea why the API would be missing search results? eg: Alpha's most recent post (before_id=70510648) [alpha.app.net] is 70510647 / 2016-10-11T04:59:29Z, but the API's most recent post (before_id=70510648) [alpha-api.app.net] is 70487266 / 2016-10-04T04:05:07Z. /cc @jdscolam

                                  @mandyd Yes good chance it was politically motivated. But that doesn’t change the fact that it exists, just that people know about it. Would you want a president that treats people like that, regardless of it was public knowledge or not?
