If you or your company uses an All-In-One Fax, you need to read this now

Check Point Software Technologies discovered a serious security flaw in ALL HP all-in-one fax printers (and may likely exist in other brands since they all use the same fax protocols). By sending a specially crafted fax transmission to an all-in-one HP scanner/printer/fax they can hack the printer's...

To Fix That Pain In Your Back, You Might Have To Change The Way You Sit

I learned to sit like this several years ago when I used to suffer from sciatica pain. I've also taught myself to hinge bending at the hips like football players are taught, which keeps you from straining your back when you bend over. https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2018/08/13/636025077/to...

The Bard's Tale Trilogy REMASTERED $15 on GOG & Steam

I'm going to get the DRM free, no online connection required version from GOG instead of Steam. I prefer games like th...

Florida candidate admits to posting inaccurate diploma, but her apology disappears from Facebook

I love this post from her: “I would like to apologize to my family and my supporters for this situation. It was not my intent to deceive or mislead anyone,” YO BABE! This wasn't just mis-stating something. YOU FORGED A FAKE DIPLOMA. That's "intent to deceive or mislead" in any court of law...

Android 9

My Pixel 2 XL just started offering it but I'm refusing for now. Reports about issues and despite claims, no one is seeing performance or battery improvements yet.

Also most of the changes are under the hood so no compelling reason to upgrade.

Rather let everyone else be a beta tester first.

Re: Anybody playing PAth of Exile ?

Hmmm, there does seem to be a single player game. They're also saying even multiplayer the only time you interact with randoms is in towns where you can join up with others as a party. If you leave a town along, it seems you are running in your own instance in the online world. You just want to disa...
