I have solved the Irish Backstop problem!
* The UK is the member of the EU.
* England and Wales Leave.
* Scotland and N.Ireland Remain.
* Thus England and Wales must exit the UK.
* The border with Scotland? No GFA; much easier.
* Gibraltar, Falklands etc? Remain with the UK. Referendums can be held to see if they wish to exit with Wangland.
* All that remains the divorce bill and any on-going maintenance payments that may be needed.
* Everyone gets what they voted for, everyone happy.
Can the UK revoke Article 50? Here's an awesome blog from Jan 2018 that examines that question, the mechanisms and potential consequences.

As #OpenBSD's de-facto wifi maintainer, I first learned about this WPA problem in June. A simple patch was provided which I could commit with slight modifications.
The original embargo was already 2 months long, and then extended again for 2 months.
The generall public (you) were left in the dark about this for at least 4 months.
This is a very sad state of affairs. It takes the industry much too long to apply a simple patch.
* 4-way handshake nonce reuse attack
* does NOT allow recovery of WIFI password or 4-way handshake negotiated encryption key (except for linux/android which can be tricked into using all-zero encryption key--lolz)
* does allow the attacker to preform a full MITM attack on a Wi-Fi connected client
* no access point patch can fix this, EVERY client device that connects to WiFi needs to be patched
Long on opinions, short on facts.
