Chromium’s impact on root DNS traffic
Wow, just wow! An experiment with basic income starting, that's exciting. The number of participants is ridiculously low though, which I presume is because of the method off funding -- private donations. Still excited!
Some of the #BornHack participants brought a warmed up Tor relay and configured it as an exit node on our network! Welcome to the tent floor exit node! https://metrics.torproject.org/rs.html#details/6CDE3363F9F9AD5A6EA484DEFB58217CC9685E31
concerns regarding the fact that, ultimately, anything running on a hypervisor is at the mercy of the hypervisor.
This was addressed back in the ‘60s by IBM’s LPARs on mainframes where the hardware-based virtualisation ensured that each LPAR not only felt like a separate machine but actually was from a hardware isolation perspective.
I tried hacking LPARs for years and failed, I count it as one of my most important failures because of all the techniques I learned while failing:flan_greybeard:
Intel publishes yet another security extension, this time it is called “TDX” for “Trust Domain Extensions” and, in Intel’s own words, "introducing new, architectural elements to deploy hardware-isolated, virtual machines (VMs) called trust domains (TDs). Intel TDX is designed to isolate VMs from the virtual-machine manager (VMM)/hypervisor and any other non-TD software on the platform to protect TDs from a broad range of software.”
It is clearly aimed at “the cloud” to try and address…
3/3 On top of all of this comes the fear. And especially when you feel that your own government doesn't have your back when you need it as most. Lack of trust in those who decide who will live and who will die is a good reason for seeking advice elsewhere. Following the majority shouldn't be the worst idea and here we are.
2/ Adding to this is, I think, the overlap of chosen actions and opinions between the Swedish establishment and some extremely ignorant actors in the world, like the U.S. president and his cohorts. A reasonable gut reaction for a U.S. citizen seems to me to take the position opposite of whatever the administration is pushing, but even a blind hen sometimes finds a grain of corn.
1/ I think that the main reason why Sweden seems to be acting so irresponsibly regarding the pandemic is its focus on public health, as opposed to handling of COVID-19. The negative effects of lockdown, including long term effects, are taken into account. Ignoring this makes it all look weird.
