Over the next few nights, we can watch for long bright streaks in the sky. It’s the Perseid Meteor Shower. Earth will pass through remnants of Comet Swift-Tuttle’s tail. Every year this cosmic dust puts on quite a show. http://planetary.org/articles/your-guide-meteor-shower

Good (well maybe, we will see, though doubtful): The US Senate passes a climate bill
Morally corrupt: The US Senate blocks a bill capping Insulin to $35 a month (should be free!)
Meaning that Amazon is making money from the person that is violating their terms and then making money from the company trying to stop the terms being violated....
And its the Drop shipper that is the problem?
So here you violate an Amazon policy and 5he company makes wholesale rates rather than retail. Then to "help" track your products Amazon has a scheme that charges 5¢ for a QR code to track the product.
I must be missing something here. In the real world this would be like going to CostCo and then selling it in your own store (assuming you paid the sales tax)?
Drop-shipping isn't illegal, but rogue sellers are costing companies millions.

Oh goodie now there is a github malware.
Time to dump github? Or does gitlab have it too? Or even Codeberg?
I doubt the last one, but public commits...
I did report this to github, the search phrase for reference is:
Search your code for that URL!

Can't believe it's taken so long for people in NZ to question the gov't's (anything-but-NZ-owned-and-run) 'Cloud First' policy for offshoring NZer data with US-owned megacorporates like AWS, Microsoft, and Google. https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/morningreport/audio/2018851605/iwi-experts-want-more-onshore-cloud-data-storage I'm appalled that our gov't ever thought this was ok given that those corporations are beholden to the US Cloud and Patriot Acts.
"We are updating the security of your university e-mail....The most secure way to access your e-mail is Outlook. For Linux use your Web Browser"
Oh look Davmail does Office365 Modern authentication. Oh and Thunderbird still works. Also actually can encrypt the e-mail from the client so its unreadable by the university... And look this all works on Linux. Plus, no Geolocation!
Yes, probably not the most secure way but still. Also sensitivity labels do not work but OpenPGP!

Ah mainframes :D
IBM turns in a pretty good quarter for systems, thanks mainly to mainframes, big Power10 iron, and storage attached to both. Now, we wait the Power10 bump in the second half.
They updated the app.... The arithmetic has dropped to a new low!
Today it estimates my average daily usage as 12 kWh which it claims will cost $2.26 because of course 0.88+12×0.18 equals.... Hold on... Nevermind my usage has never been above 3 kWh.
This after every day before the new bill having the price rise (about 5 cents a day) when the usage stayed at 2.54 kWh... And being on a fixed price contract.
