@aral @ScottMortimer Hang on - the article says they use AES-128 - that's not rolling your own! I bet the reason for using ECB is for any user to be able to recover after congestion - (counter could do the same ?). Distributing the keys is a mess though - I don't think there's a standard to use; Matrix has a complex scheme that only just about works but shows the challenge in a multiple-user e2e scheme - it's hard to exchange keys with an arbitrary no of users who can join/leave/dropout.
@mansr Not that I'm aware; it was under 5k a few weeks ago, just managed to get over 10k tests/day a few days ago, and hit 12k today.
@wyliecoyoteuk The thing I'm missing is why, with a -ve price we're not turning our gas generation down more - we're still running ~4.5GW of gas (and exporting about 1GW to the continent).
@wyliecoyoteuk Nice; apparently this is even with our nukes down to under 5gw (I wonder why, it could be maintenance).
@ajroach42 You can see someone writing out the requirements for the builders 'install cat 5 network jacks in every room' - 'done, tick...'

@codesections Things like phone switches at small offices can set any outgoing phone number they like; e.g. so that they can get you to phone back on a freephone/premium/central number even if the call is made from any one of their offices.
Similarly where there are multiple phone companies they provide the number to your phone company...and well they can say anything.
As for outgoing calls...there's not much security apparently in that either.
@alcinnz Welcome tot the world of heizenbugs. Still, if it doesn't happen in gdb, you can turn coredumping on and try gdb on the core.
@alcinnz OK! Let hte debugger help you when you can.
@alcinnz does 'bt full' get you any more info in gdb?
and is there a set of debug symbols for the haskell install so we can see what stg_deRefStablePtrzh is doing?
@alcinnz I don't know what the haskell C interface looks like; but have you got a gdb backtrace ?
Zoom's response to privacy failures -
@peter A lot of companies seem to have an odd idea that all they care about when using another company is that they've got a contract saying that the other company will keep their data privacy; it's very odd.
@rogerggbr It's worse in the US, they only get 6ft! Fortunately we have the metric virus over here.
@pro Then there's the point you end up running Dell's soft-disk emulation over a transatlantic VPN from your laptop.
