A comment in the ghazi thread:

TL;DR: It's possible to criticize Pao's actions (e.g. for mishandling someone's firing) without it being a direct attack on her for being a woman.

Wait, really? When we were doing this, the two weren't as mutually exclusive...

Yeah, when we criticised Anita, it was because she was a woman, not for any other reason. But aGGros - their criticism is fundamentally different, you see.

[PSA] Just a reminder to many of you out there. Don't forget to put a piece of tape over your webcam if it's integrated into your computer. submitted by jasenlee to Conspiracy

Saw you guys on /v/all, thought I'd butt in a bit. It's up to you how much tinfoil you use, but turning on a webcam while avoiding the indicator LED is definitely possible:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2013/12/18/research-shows-how-macbook-webcams-can-spy-on-their-users-without-warning/

It goes deeper than you'd think. MacBooks had their "webcam-on" indicators - supposedly - hardwired in. That means, it's a hardware function, not software, so it shouldn't be possible to hack it. Yet, here we are. Goes to show that no matter how secure you think your technology is, you aren't safe from human/engineering mistakes, or backdoors for that matter.

There were also some Flash vulnerabilities that allowed turning on webcams while avoiding their indicator lights - this worked on cams that had their LED turned on by software, AFAIK. Speaking of Flash, it's a total security train wreck, and as it's still used sometimes on the internet, you'd better use caution with it.

What music have you been listening to recently? submitted by ciaran to CasualConversation

red_q 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Stuff by Helene Bøksle: Heiemo Og Nykkjen, Isimo, Nattergalen. I like to listen to songs in foreign languages that I don't understand for some reason.

http://www.gnoosic.com/ helped a lot. Found it in a recent reddit thread.

For those who arrived after the Reddit exodus, what is your opinion on Voat? submitted by ciaran to CasualConversation

I like that this place has so few people. On the one hand, I would like for it to change, seeing how messed up reddit is now and whatnot. On the other, that would be inviting reddit's/digg's fate here.

The interface is both better and worse. The daylight theme is a bit too unreadable - too many...

As opposed to many other things posted here, this isn't outrageous. Like Spectre said, they do it for free and this is a nice way to appreciate their work. It's another thing that many of those people as assclowns, but reddit thanking their contributors shouldn't have much to do with...
