How Low Can an Octopus Go
In 1971, scientists photographed an octopus living 5,100 meters beneath the waves. It was the deepest-dwelling octopus ever seen—until now.

I'm really pleased with my latest 'accoutrement', an object which symbolizes great ancients meanings, and also lends itself to both my philosophy and the tattoos I bear. :-)

It's allways a good thing when your life matches your tattoos. ;-)
That's fortune cookie true, man. Cheers. :-)

#Checkin welcomes you to Thursday, July 2!


Whether you are #newhere, a regular or a visitor, this is #checkin, which means you choose what you wish to do - wave, say hello, share your insights or worries about our chaotic world, unrelated experiences, pics, poetry, music, memes, questions, or, just relax, sip on your pixel coffee/tea/drink and enjoy the company. There’ll be good folks dropping in from many time zones to join us. No need to worry about social distancing here. 🤗




Topic of the day:
What's happening in your part of the world? I'm sure many annual traditions which involve gatherings of people have been cancelled because of the pandemic, however, what are particular things that are unique to your region at this time of year, regardless of limits to human socialization?

One of those occurrences in my region, along the west coast of Canada, is the availability of Spot Prawns. Spot Prawns are the largest of 7 varieties of prawns/shrimp in our waters. They are available from the waters off California to the north Pacific off Alaska, technically from February to November. But in single locales, they show up only once a year for 6 to 8 weeks. For us, Spot Prawns are here right now! Because of their limited availability, they are hard to find and regarded a very special treat. 😋

Good evening, I miss going to concerts or festivials. Start of carnival season in Germany is at the 11th of November (11.11), it will also be problematic or difficult to celebrate.
It ends usually around February. This year the carnival festivities have been early corona hot-spots
strawberries raspberries cherries all ripening.
it is almost the 4/July in U.S. thankfully many fireworks will be less this year.
Seattle summer really hasn't started yet!

@know well I only have 29tb right now.

@Christian M. Grube Ugh, don't remind me of those horrid things.... Very prone to failure.
@Josh Sabboth With unbelievableable speed connected to the parallel port :)

That's all cool beans and all, but...

None of those men immortalized in granite on that mountain were perfect humans. Each has his own faults and foibles.

G. Washington - slave owner
T. Jefferson - slave owner
T. Roosevelt - militaristic, hunter, egotist, etc.
A. Lincoln - no friend to Native Americans, black Africans, etc.

I guess my point here is that history is often softened over time. People we think of as "founding fathers" and/or important personalities in our past were NOT perfect by any stretch of the imagination. Sadly, few will ever research and understand this on their own.

Hell, numerous signers of the Declaration of Independence were slave owners. That document starts out with the this:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal..."

Yeah... I call BULLSHIT on that! What they should have written there was, "...all white men...".
...what I hate about this....'monument' is how it is the rude and illegal graffiti to use a Sacred Site to the local Native Americans without ANY admittance of responsibility...

Why encrypt emails?


Do you want to send your digital letters as post cards? Probably not.

Sending unencrypted emails is like sending post cards – anyone and any system that process your mails can read its content. If you encrypt your emails, you put your message into an envelope that only the recipient of the email can open.

Free software. Secure. OpenSource

Done For Today

Take good care of yourself and yours, stay home and wear a mask if you go out. Wash your hands with soap and water regularly. Live well and outlive your enemies; that's the best revenge.
... any day above ground, yotta, yotta ...
Yep! I always think of the lady I passed while walking at the park. I nodded and said something like, "How ya doing?"

She looked at me with a smile and these bright piercing eyes and said, "It's the best day of my life!"


In the 80s and 90s, because of my business, I worked with people from numerous three-letter-agencies. Great guys to work with, smart, we hung out, I asked a lot of questions and learned a lot over a long period of time. I wondered if things had changed since DHS was created, but maybe not, which is good.

I don't know about the other agencies, but one thing I can tell you about the FBI is that they are extremely focused on their reputation. Their reputation is golden and is their stock in trade. People trust the FBI implicitly which helps them tremendously in their work. The worst sin you can commit is to bring dishonor of any kind on the reputation of the Bureau.

So, when I saw Trump repeatedly accusing the FBI of all kinds of things and trying to drag them through the mud, I was curious what would happen. If it was the FBI I knew 25 years ago, they would not take this lightly nor forget, ever, nor let him just walk away and forget about it. I predicted that, eventually, when the time was right, something would happen. I was just commenting about this a couple weeks ago, and here we are.

Trump generates so much evil nastiness every day of his life, I chuckle that the FBI is probably overwhelmed and can't decide where to start. Hahaha.

The article uses the word revenge, but I think a reckoning is more accurate. And, I have a feeling this is just the beginning.

When I worked for the military I met a few of these 3-letter agency guys, and ironically gained quite a bit of respect for them, even while I continued to not trust them, particularly. Main thing is, never underestimate those smart fuckers. ;-)

I am no fan of “the agencies”, but virtually anything that gets Trump out of office would be appropriate in this situation.

Estimated excess deaths for USA, 1 March - 30 May: 122,300.

Thats 'only' 28% more than the registered number of covid-19 related deaths.


in a way, if each one of us runs the numbers, will come out to the same conclusion. We mostly live to produce trash, and wrap that trash in pseudo morals replacing achievements with accomplishments, missions with goals, ideals with populism, integrity with conformism.
There are very few of people out there, whose life has a positive ROI, sadly during the pandemic we saw many of those on the front line, under-equipped, under-payed and under-appreciated.

I've found an anti-police lawsuit that you'll oppose. Yes, seriously.

The Meyer family who owns Vince’s Crab House in Middle River say Baltimore County Police are failing to protect them from social justice protesters

Vince Meyer drew the ire of protesters for his disparaging [read: RACIST] comments on Facebook about the protests sweeping the nation after the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police.
and for his video non-apology, which intentionally ran 8m 46s
(plus other racist statements mentioned at ^ link---plus the fact that his customer base is 75% Black)

stirred ppl up and now he's whining about it
“It’s time the law is enforced,” Brenda Meyer said. “It’s time for us to walk outside our own business without being yelled and screamed at... it’s time for our customers to feel safe.”
OK, KAREN

Typical complete lack of understanding of how others might not feel safe
(also of the First Amendment right to protest)

[Tails-news] Tails 4.8 is out


This release fixes many security
vulnerabilities
.
You should upgrade as soon as possible.

New features


* We disabled the Unsafe Browser by default and clarified that the Unsafe Browser can be used to deanonymize you.

An attacker could exploit a security vulnerability in another application in
Tails to start an invisible Unsafe Browser and reveal your IP address, even
if you are not using the Unsafe Browser.

For example, an attacker could exploit a security vulnerability in
Thunderbird by sending you a phishing email that could start an invisible
Unsafe Browser and reveal them your IP address.

Such an attack is very unlikely but could be performed by a strong attacker,
such as a government or a hacking firm.

This is why we recommend that you:
\* Only enable the _Unsafe Browser_ if you need to log in to a captive portal. 
\* Always upgrade to the latest version of Tails to fix known vulnerabilities as soon as possible.

* We added a new feature of the Persistent Storage to save the settings from the Welcome Screen.

This feature is beta and only the additional setting to enable the Unsafe
Browser
is made persistent. The other settings (language, keyboard, and other
additional settings) will be made persistent in Tails 4.9 (July 28).

Image/Photo

Changes and updates


* Update Tor Browser to 9.5.1.

* Update Thunderbird to 68.9.0.

* Update Linux to 5.6.0. This should improve the support for newer hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.).

Fixed problems


* Fix the Find in page feature of Thunderbird. (#17328)

* Fix shutting down automatically the laptop when resuming from suspend with the Tails USB stick removed. (#16787)

* Notify always when MAC address spoofing fails and the network interface is disabled. (#17779)

* Fix the import of OpenPGP public keys in binary format (non armored) from the Files browser.

For more details, read our
changelog.

Known issues


* Administration passwords set at the Welcome Screen cannot contain most non-english characters, including spaces (#17779). Because of this you should limit your passwords to only alphanumeric characters (a-z, A-Z, 0-9) and the following special characters: [email protected]%+=:,./-. Once you have logged in you can change the password however you like using the passwd command in a Terminal.

See the list of long-standing
issues
.

Get Tails 4.8

To upgrade your Tails USB stick and keep your persistent storage


* Automatic upgrades are available from Tails 4.2 or later to 4.8.

* If you cannot do an automatic upgrade or if Tails fails to start after an automatic upgrade, please try to do a manual upgrade.

To install #Tails on a new USB stick


Follow our installation instructions:

* Install from Windows
* Install from macOS
* Install from Linux

All the data on this USB stick will be lost if you install instead of
upgrading.

To download only


If you don't need installation or upgrade instructions, you can download Tails
4.8 directly:

* For USB sticks (USB image)
* For DVDs and virtual machines (ISO image)

What's coming up?


Tails 4.9 is scheduled for July
28.

Have a look at our roadmap to see
where we are heading to.

We need your help and there are many ways to contribute to
Tails

(donating is only one of them). Come
talk to us!
