If you are on twitter don't repeat the impeach M.W. !!!!

I have seen tweets supporting Maxine Waters repeating that phrase. All that does is amplify it boosting the numbers. Put impeach trump if you are responding.

Cummings and Waters will be on AMJoy today.

This will be a good show having both on.

How Shipwrecked Champagne Is Changing Winemaking

Thought this was interesting. I wonder if they will run lab tests to see if there is a change in the chemical compounds.

"Connoisseurs have long suspected that wine ages differently underwater. Analyses from a 10,000-bottle-capacity cellar off the Spanish coast by a company called Bajoelagua Factory show that factors like atmospheric pressure and water currents change the chemical compounds in wine.

Napa’s Mira Winery conducted its own taste tests on 240 bottles in Charleston Harbor. When the first case was pulled up in 2013, a sommelier told owner Jim Dyke: “You’ve turned a 2009 cabernet into a 2007 in three months.” "

How many r's will be indignant when/if

Dipshit donnie's kids are charged with rico cases or tax evasion?

From the very beginning I'm pretty sure most people here have thought it will be coming. Not talking about any of the stuff going on lately but in general. All the mafia ties, shell companies, misuse of charity funds by daddy, etc. I am sure those life teachings were passed on to the kids.

I fully expect the trumpers to be screaming fake news! (At daddies prompting) They will be saying they shouldn't go after the "kids" even though they are adults and aware of consequences. Trying to come up with some kind of excuse for their actions. Or saying it is all a conspiracy.

What's coming next from the nsa tools out in the wild?

Not including this one or variants of the ransomware released that caused a lot of problems. I have a question for those who have heard what else was in there.

What other threats may turn up? This last one was directed at Microsoft products. Are there some different programs that affect Microsoft stuff by a different route? Are there Apple hack tools? Linux? Phones? Or any of the "internet of things" hacks in the stuff stolen?

Sunoco blend-o-matic gas

After posting the Steppingwolf and Josefus songs got me to remember about buying that gas. I would run normal gas (15-17 cents per gallon) during the week. But Thursday I'd hit the Sunoco and put in the "good" stuff. For street racing through the week end. They offered 8 grades of gas.

For those who never heard of a sunoco blend-o-matic they sold some really high octane gas compared to other stations.

Here's one of the gas pumps.

I had 2 cars I would toss some of it in. A 1967 400 cubic inch 4 on the floor gto. With mandatory hood pins. (Just kidding about mandatory but they were in at the time.) And a 1964 chevy impala with a 327 and 4 on the floor. Both had the kind of normal upgrades holley, glass packs, chrome, etc.

'Accidental hero' finds kill switch to stop spread of ransomware cyber-attack

From the Guardian

First published on Friday 12 May 2017 21.41 EDT

An “accidental hero” has halted the global spread of the WannaCry ransomware, reportedly by spending a few dollars on registering a domain name hidden in the malware.

The ransomware has wreaked havoc on organizations including FedEx and Telefonica, as well as the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), where operations were cancelled, x-rays, test results and patient records became unavailable and phones did not work.

However, a UK cybersecurity researcher tweeting as @malwaretechblog, with the help of Darien Huss from security firm Proofpoint, found and activated a “kill switch” in the malicious software."

Looks like it had a built in kill switch. It would check if a domain was live. And if it was live (AKA registered) it would shut down.

An “accidental hero” has halted the global spread of the WannaCry ransomware, reportedly by spending a few dollars on registering a domain name hidden in the malware.

The ransomware has wreaked havoc on organizations including FedEx and Telefonica, as well as the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), where operations were cancelled, x-rays, test results and patient records became unavailable and phones did not work.

However, a UK cybersecurity researcher tweeting as @malwaretechblog, with the help of Darien Huss from security firm Proofpoint, found and activated a “kill switch” in the malicious software.

The switch was hardcoded into the malware in case the creator wanted to stop it spreading. This involved a very long nonsensical domain name that the malware makes a request to – just as if it was looking up any website – and if the request comes back and shows that the domain is live, the kill switch takes effect and the malware stops spreading.

Josefus

Long time back in a different world you could go to a park and hear such bands as Josefus for free. (Heard ZZ Top there also.) Strange memories and times. Milby Park in Houston had a long run. It did change over time. I was even there the day the police came in with buses to bust everyone they could. All of us who had motorcycles got away pretty easy going through the woods and coming out past them.
