Htop on macOS High Sierra · Issue #682 · hishamhm/htop

Can confirm: I can trigger this problem with either HEAD or 2.0.2 release, while using while true; do sh -c "exit 0"; done to spam at the background. Because this can be confusing (yeah, who will spam this in the background anyway), let me explain my story on debugging: I upgraded my Mac to 10.13,…

Where Pot Entrepreneurs Go When the Banks Just Say No

Where Pot Entrepreneurs Go When the Banks Just Say No

Applying for a Safe Harbor checking account is an invasive procedure. The credit union first tries to learn as much as it can about the company and its owners, beginning with an hourlong interview, followed by the document collection that Behzadzadeh found so aggravating: lists of owners, investors, vendors and customers; financial statements and tax…

Productivity in 2017: What we learned from analyzing 225 million hours – rescueTime

And another year turns over without any real understanding of how we actually spent our time. But our mission at RescueTime has always been to help you do more meaningful work. And this…
The T2 chip makes the iMac Pro the start of a Mac revolution

The T2 chip makes the iMac Pro the start of a Mac revolution

I’ve spent the last week with Apple’s new iMac Pro, and in most ways it’s just a faster Mac. It's the first pro Mac desktop in over three years and the fastest Mac yet made, granted, but still entirely familiar. And yet in many ways—some noticeable, some entirely invisible—this new Mac is completely different from…

Announcing the OpenWrt/LEDE merge

Both the OpenWrt and LEDE projects are happy to announce their unification under the OpenWrt name. After long and sometimes slowly moving discussions about the specifics of the re-merge, with multiple similar proposals but little subsequent action, we’re happy to announce that both projects are about to execute the final steps of the merger.

More details about mitigations for the CPU Speculative Execution issue

Summary Mitigation This attack variant allows malicious code to circumvent bounds checking features built into most binaries.

When the CPU determines the bounds check has failed,…

Xerox Alto zero-day: cracking disk password protection on a 45 year old system

We've been archiving a bunch of old Xerox Alto disk packs from the 1970s. A few of them turned out to be password-protected, so I needed to figure out how to get around the password protection. I've developed a way to disable password protection, as well as a program to find the password instantly. (This…

The Case for the Subway

II. WHY WE MUST SAVE THE SUBWAY The subway has been saved before, and the man who saved it was Richard Ravitch. Stocky, white-haired and gruff, Ravitch, now 84, is the type of civic macher you don’t see much anymore, an urban idealist who has spent his career moving back and forth between the public…
The Giant, Under Attack

The Giant, Under Attack

On the last day of his life, Gary Benefield expressed hope for the future. He was finally about to “get right,” he said. A Harley-riding tough guy and retired utility worker, Mr. Benefield had let addiction get the better of him. He was downing a dozen Budweisers a day and smoking nonstop, despite needing an…

Kenichi Yamamoto, Father of Mazda’s Rotary Engine, Is Dead at 95

“We had to show we were different; we had to show our distinctiveness,” Mr. Yamamoto told The New York Times in 1985. His team produced a successful engine: The prototype of a stylish rotary-powered coupe called the Cosmo made its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1963. Mr. Yamamoto patiently talked about the Cosmo…
