[Paid Release] BackupAZ 4 - A new version that support modern jailbreak

Hello everyone,

It's been 3 crazy weeks for me but the initial release is here, BackupAZ 4 has finally been pushed to Packix!

Here is the link to its depiction : https://repo.packix.com/package/com.synnyg.backupaz4/

For those of you that don't know what this app is, it's basically a mobile version of iTunes. It allow you to backup many many (many?) things directly on your mobile device. Not only the basic applications data are supported but also many things related to your jailbreak setup.

The app also allow you to reinstall these data later on, allowing you to restore your jailbreak setup right after a "Restore root fs" action for exemple, or after an iOS upgrade. This is possible due to the fact that BackupAZ 4 store your backups under iTunes safeguard location, meaning that when you restore an iTune backup (or with your Finder on your Mac), all your backups are reinstalled and will be visible :).

Also (and this is important to mention), BackupAZ 3 backups are compatible with BackupAZ 4!

Here is a full list of supported backups (this list is subject to changes, a big new backup / restore operation will soon come to the app: snapshots!):

  • Installed Cydia / Sileo / Zebra / Installer Packages
  • Deb of your installed tweaks !
  • Cydia sources
  • Sileo sources
  • Zebra sources
  • Installer preferences
  • Tweaks and Apple Applications preferences
  • Accounts
  • Calendar events
  • Call History
  • Address book
  • Health data
  • iBooks library
  • Mails
  • Messages and iMessages
  • Notes
  • Photos and Videos
  • Safari Bookmarks
  • SpringBoard settings
  • Voice memos
  • Voicemails

There is one thing I would like to mention specifically: there are some features / options that have disappeared compared to BackupAZ 3. This is because I wanted to have a quicker initial release for people to be able to use this app in a perfect timing (right after several new jailbreak releases, which is the best scenario people could use this app for). However all these features are being worked on and will be reincluded in the coming weeks (I just started a new job irl so please be patient, I promise I'll do my best).

As usual, if you have any questions, bug reports or just feedbacks please head over to my website at https://synnygr.dev/Support/support.php.

While submitting bug report, please upload the content of /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/BackupAZ/consoleOutput.txt to some past

WWE Network on Peacock Frequently Asked Questions and Transition Discussion

#WWE Network/Peacock Transition Frequently Asked Questions

As you may have heard, the US version of the WWE Network will be going away soon, with its content moving to NBC Universal's Peacock streaming service. This is an attempt to answer the many questions we have seen in recent weeks in a centralized location.

Sources:

  • https://www.peacocktv.com/sports/wwe
  • https://help.wwe.com/Answer/Detail/572
  • https://corporate.comcast.com/press/releases/wwe-network-to-launch-on-peacock-march-18
  • https://www.peacocktv.com/help/

#Transition Questions

When does the transition happen?

WWE Network content will begin appearing on Peacock on March 18, while WWE Network will cease operations in the US on April 4. There is already some WWE content on Peacock as part of an earlier licensing deal, but primarily documentaries and specials.

Will all WWE Network content move to Peacock?

Not immediately. On March 18, the following content is announced as being there:

  • Every PPV event in the last calendar year;
  • All previous WrestleMania events;
  • Current or most recent season episodes of WWE original series Steve Austin’s The Broken Skull Sessions, WWE Chronicle, and WWE Icons;
  • New weekly episodes of NXT the day after air, as well as the 2021 replays of RAW and SmackDown 30 days after air;
  • Documentaries, including Undertaker: The Last Ride, WWE 24, and WWE Untold;
  • Reality series, including Total Bellas;
  • Collections of featured series, topical moments like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Week, and playlists showcasing current Superstars.

Other content is expected to be available by Summerslam.

Everything that's on WWE Network now will be available on Peacock by Summerslam?

Yes, hopefully. A recent press release claims "Peacock will continually add WWE Network content to the library, making the entire WWE Network archive—including every WWE, WCW, and ECW PPV event in history—available to stream on demand before SummerSlam."


#WWE Network Questions

Do I need to cancel WWE Network?

No, however if your subscription start date is after March 18, you may want to if you're subscribing to Peacock immediately and want to save a few dollars.

How do I cancel the WWE Network?

This link should take you to the cancellation page: https://watch.wwe.com/cancel-l3

What happens if I pay for WWE Network this month and my subscription runs past April 4?

[Software Development][Wikipedia] A decades long debate over the name of an operating system.

TL;DR: The guys who (mostly) created one of the most used operating systems in the world got into a controversy with a guy who accidentally got it named after him, he wasn't even fighting back... and still they lost.

Now, you might say "But /u/NirgalFromMars, software development is not a hobby, it's a JOB". Well, not in this case, get ready to see probably the most world-changing hobby ever.

A short introduction to operating systems

You're probably reading this in either your computer or your cellphone, right? Maybe a tablet. Or if you're too GenZ, maybe in your X-Box? (I dunno, us millenials are the new boomers. What do kids browse the internet on nowadays?)

But in any case, to read this you're using an app or a program. Firefox, Chrome, another browser, the Reddit app... there is a piece of software that accesses Reddit and displays the very letters you're reading. And this software has to interact with the device to do it in multiple ways. It has to:

  • Access your input (keyboard, screen, mouse, whatever) to know where you want to go.
  • Access the network to visit Reddit, request and receive the information.
  • Access the display to show you the information.
  • If there's any audio involved, it has to access the speakers.
  • If you use any kind of audio reception, it has to access the microphone.

And so on.

Now, it's not like all the programs can directly do that, because programming every single one of these functions in each program would make it too cumbersome and bloated.

There is a more fundamental layer of software that can do all that, and every program you run only needs to know how to communicate with that layer, which is the same for all the programs you run. That layer is called the operating system (OS for short) and handles all the interaction between the software and the hardware. Some of them are for example Linux, Windows, MacOS or Android, but there are many more in the market.

Usually, an OS is not a single piece of software, but a big and complex set of programs working in parallel, each of them controlling one individual function (or sometimes more than one), and in the center of them all something called the kernel, which basically regulates how all of these programs interact with each other and how they access the resources of the computer, sends data to be stored in memory, and makes sure all the programs do what has to be done. But keep in mind that the kern

Pricing Update & Big Releases Coming To Syncro

I wanted to be the first to let you all know that big changes are coming to Syncro! First, let’s talk features. We’ve rolled out a dizzying array of features in 2020, along with our utterly massive Syncro Backups release from earlier this year. Yet somehow, that almost seems small in comparison to what we have in store for the rest of 2021. Now we’re ready to pen our next chapter.

To get things rolling, we're announcing four major feature releases coming over the next two months, and no, that was not a typo.

Policy Inheritance

We’re adding an all new asset policy management system where policies can be applied at the customer level, and up to five levels of subfolders below. Each folder can have its own policy assigned, which will add to or override policies above it. Assets can also have policies directly assigned to them serving as the last level of the policy inheritance tree. Assets can simply be dragged from one folder to another to apply the applicable policy tree. Asset deployments will now allow you to assign which customer subfolder the asset will fall into during installation.

Splashtop

We are bringing a fully-integrated unattended version of Splashtop into Syncro for all customers which will replace Syncro Live's Remote Desktop. You won’t need to setup accounts or manually manage anything as this will all happen behind the scenes. We’re also ensuring you have one-click remote access to assets from everywhere within the platform.

Mac Agent

Our new Mac agent, which coincidentally is rolling out today as an open beta, has been completely rewritten from scratch. It’s fully compatible with current versions of macOS as well as Macs with updated hardware including M1 processors. It will also support silent deployments.

Once deployed, check your installers for the new “Mac V2 Beta” download.

Internal Report Builder

Much like our new Executive Summary Report Builder, we’ll be rolling out an internal version where each block can be scoped to a single customer, or scoped to all customers, allowing you unprecedented freedom in customizing your internal reporting capabilities.

--

I’ll be announcing more details on each one of these four features over the coming month, starting with a deep dive on our new Mac agent coming next week.

Syncro has made a significant investment in our development team, increasing capacity so that we can roll out bigger features more often. We’ve kept this pace since we first laun

When your friend asks you to build a rig for them...

Lately I've been inundated with friends asking how to get into crypto. They want to buy a rig or give me cash to "rent" one of mine, etc. Numbers ranging from $10k to $2mm. I decided to detail out all of my experience to date and I blasted an email to all of them, which is copied verbatim below.

The response? "When can I drive down to pick up my rig?" I was stunned. Anyway, what follows is my real life experience and observation of mining ETH and getting pretty deep in the weeds on the development cycle.

Disclaimer - this is not legal advice, investment advice or any advice. This is for entertainment purposes only. If you drop a toaster in your bathtub and die it's not my fault. Happy mining.

========================================

Hi all,

I wanted to relay my experience to date with mining ETH and lay out some of the complexities and risks associated with the mining operation and compare/contrast to buying crypto.

There is no doubt in my mind that crypto in some form is here to stay.  This is the pandora's box of finance - I don't see any way that there can be meaningful regulation around this due to the very nature of crypto's design.  There could be United States regulation that makes it hard to access crypto, but I don't see any way that it can be totally outlawed.

Where I am at

I've invested about $200,000 over the last 4 months to create around 450 GPUs of mining power.  At the current set of parameters for ETH, that is yielding about $40,000 per month net profit, so I should recoup my initial investment around June or July.  The payout per card is actually slightly better than what I had originally estimated.

For comparison, if instead I had spent $200,000 on just buying ETH in late November when I started acquiring mining rig equipment, I would have $800,000 in ETH today.  Hindsight is 20/20 and timing the market is near impossible, but that's the financial reality of my choice.

Components of ETH income

There are several factors that go into how much ETH and USD is earned from mining.

The raw value of computing power is the "hash".  Most cards are measured in megahash - millions of hashes per second.  An average card costing $350 will do about 25 MH/s.  Right now my farm is doing about 10 gigahash (10,000 MH/s).  A typical rig will have 6 to 8 cards and do 150 to 200 MH/s.  I have found that 6 cards per rig is very stable, but up to 9 is possible.

Almost everyone mines in a pool.  The nature of ETH is that it's a r

Is it just me, or is Apple's obsession with end-user privacy a huge hindrance in the education and enterprise realm?

Background: I work in K-12 public education managing about 23,000 iPads and 1,700 Macs with JAMF Pro, and about 1,400 iPads with Mosyle that we inherited from another department. Most of the iPads are in the hands of students between Pre-K and 3rd-grade.

In our environment, Apple's stance on end-user privacy is annoying at best, and a gigantic hindrance for recovering lost/stolen iPads at worst. And each successive version of iOS seems to lock out MDM capabilities or annoy sysadmins even more. Then again maybe I'm missing some things, so if I am, please tell me.

IMHO, the owner of a device, especially one managed by MDM in the DEP program, should have almost complete control and visibility to the device including the location at nearly all times, or at least at regularly reported intervals. I'm not asking to see everything (ex: I'm not interested in remotely viewing the photos or videos on the device, I don't want the ability to remotely enable the camera or microphone, nothing like that). But the lack of control over Location Services is incredibly frustrating when it relates to tracking down lost or stolen iPads. We can't even force-enable Location Services to be on during setup through MDM -- we have to trust our users setting up student iPads (mostly school librarians) to remember to hit "Enable Location Services" as they are setting up the iPads.

Little kids leave devices all over the place and sometimes they get stolen. That's just life sometimes. Without a location trail of bread crumbs we can't help frustrated parents find their child's iPad. If the iPad stops talking to JAMF, the most we can tell them is "XYZ date was the last time the device talked to our management system, and it (was, or was not) on one of our school's campuses based on the reported external IP address". Then maybe an IP geolocation lookup for the reported external IP address to get a generalized location at best, if it was off-campus.

I don't have visibility to the SSID the device is or has been connected to. I can't see internal IP addresses. I can't pull a location without it being in Lost Mode and making it obvious to the end-user. I have to get our Network team involved to see the last time a device was on our network by giving them the MAC address and seeing which wireless access point it was most recently connected to.

This past week I had a request to help find a missing child by trying to track their school-issued iPad as a last resort. They

Apollo for Reddit version 1.10.6 is now available! A bunch of new features plus a bunch of bug fixes, what more could you ask for?! Family Sharing for all, a BUNCH of new icons, following, Share as Image improvements, clipboard functionality, and fixes to make things even smoother! 🎉🚀🚀

Hey all!

Been hard at work on this update for awhile now. It's been tricky to split my time between the upcoming iPad version (takes a lot of work!), chipping away at a Mac version, while also keeping the App Store version pumping with requested features and bug fixes, but I'm up for the task!

This update includes a bunch of requested features over the last little bit that should make Apollo even more delightful to use.

Family Sharing

A big one many have requested is that Apollo now works completely with Family Sharing, so if you have other family members on your iTunes account you can pick up Apollo Pro or Ultra as easy as could be. And if you don't have Apollo Ultra or Pro, family members can get together and chip in to buy whatever you desire and all reap the rewards. You're going to want to for the next feature!

Icons

A bunch of new icons! Who doesn't love icons? (If you don't keep scrolling there's lots of other stuff too :P) This is the biggest single update in terms of added icons in Apollo's history. There's two new Ultra icons, both made by the incredibly talented Matthew Skiles, called Space Shanty (a beautiful rendition of our dude in space), and Roary the Dragon, a beautiful rendition of the Apollo icon as a dragon, which nicely coincides with Chinese New Year which is pretty cool. In addition, there's two new icons in the Community Icon Pack, by u/berrymetal and u/johnnysilverpaw, featuring an absolutely shocked version of the Apollo mascot plus a beautiful canvas painting rendition. And lastly, for our Pro users, there's a bunch new secret icons. A bunch of them are based on some video content creators I (and a lot of you) like so I thought it'd be some fun easter eggs, so happy unlocking those, I won't say anymore. :) Apollo Ultra obviously gives you all of the above icons, so it's the best way to do it, but they're available a la carte as well.

Following Users

You can now follow users easily within Apollo. For those of you wondering what that means, if a particular Reddit user (say, a celebrity) has interesting content they can post it to their own profile. It's kind of a hybrid between a subreddit and a user. So now you can follow that user and posts made to their "own subreddit" will show up just like any other subreddit in your feed.

Little Reddit Experiments

There's been some little Reddit experiments they're testing out in some communities with "Snoomoji" (basically Reddit renditions of emoji) and inline GIFs. They

How we almost got acquired by Facebook and failed. Here's what I learned.

This is not a happy ending story.

The beginning

It all started back in 2014. I had a startup whose clients were advertisers. It was a platform for users to review video ads in exchange for online points that could be redeemed for money or coupons. Watch and ad; rate it; be rewarded. Simple.

After 100 campaigns I kept hearing it would be wonderful to connect their offline ads (e.g. TV ads, billboards, magazines, etc) with our platform. Advertisers wanted real insights and analytics from their offline advertising investment.

As dedicated founders we started working hard on this concept: “from offline to online with your phone”. Within 4 months we had our first version. I remember showing it to our friends and constantly hearing “Wow this is brilliant! It’s like Shazam but for videos”. I was ecstatic!

The investment

The revenue was coming in but it wasn’t recurrent. It was difficult to enter the yearly advertising budget. Advertisers assumed our platform as an experiment (mainly to get feedback) and not as a serious distribution channel — despite the fact we picked at 100,000 registered users.

We needed investment to grow and build the new technology’s infrastructure. It wasn’t cheap to maintain a technology that recognized millions of videos within 4s. More on this latter.

In 2015 we raised $0.5M from angels and led by a VC. This allowed us to grow our team to 7 members and accelerate product development.

We were ready to storm the world!

The pivot

In retrospect, our product decisions after the investment killed our startup. We shifted our focus from the local videos ads review platform — where we had 100k users and 60 clients — to a global video recognition consumer product.

We created an App — like Shazam — that recognized millions of videos. Our goal was to have advertisers make their offline assets interactive and invite their audience to download our App and use it to unlock “something”. The practical end was the same as the QR code. How cool is that? Scan a video and “magically” show related content on your screen? Exciting, right?

Wrong. Very few people downloaded the App. It turns out the barrier of downloading the App was too much for the reward (whatever the brand wanted to offer). Don’t get me wrong, we did some cool campaigns with Kia, Unilever, or Volkswagen. But again these were one-shot campaigns. Basically an investment in innovation from the brands.

After long days discussing our future, we thought of somethi

100% FOSS Smartphone Hardening non-root Guide 3.0 (for normal people) ft. some advanced tricks

NOTE (June) 15/06/2020: r_privacy moderator trai_dep revengefully deleted my highly gilded 1.0 guide post before.

EDIT 14/03/2021: Adding back "Privacy Indicators" as less buggy alternative to "Vigilante" app for camera/mic indicator. Also adding "Standard Notes" for people who want a cloud sync notepad app.

#NOTE: I will NOT respond to prejudiced and political trolls.

Hello! I am back with the third version of the guide I started last year with the aim of getting nearly top grade levels of privacy in the hands (pun intended) of all smartphone users, focused on steps that normal, average people with basic tech knowledge can apply.

This version of the guide is fundamentally an incremental improvement, so some parts of the guide may seem copy pasted, but they are supposed to be that way for obvious reasons.

A kind request to share this guide to any privacy seeker.

#User and device requirement

  • ANY Android 9+ device (Android 10+ recommended for better security)
  • knowledge of how to copy-paste commands in Linux or Mac Terminal/MS-DOS Command Prompt (for ADB, it is very simple, trust me)
  • For intermediate tech users: typing some URLs and saving them in a text file

#What brings this third iteration? Was the previous guide not good enough?

No, it was not. There is always room for improvement, and it has been 6 months since the last edit I made in the 2.0 guide. The new changes warranted a new version of the guide, as lot of things changed. If I simply made the edit in previous one, people would have skimmed, glossed over or not noticed.

A basic summary of new additions to the 2.0 guide:

  • A better photo collage of and how to create a DIY camera cover for notched phones
  • introducing an app that locally shows history about lock screen, permissions, 3.5 jack plug and camera/mic access, thus replacing "Privacy Indicators" app
  • how to block trackers for any app in the future using an app/database called Exodus
  • how to get KDE Connect working for your phone to connect to computer, to avoid using SHAREit, AirDroid and such programs
  • how to debloat Work user profile in Android, which is separate from the main admin user profile we use

Wine release 6.0
The Wine team is proud to announce that the stable release Wine 6.0
is now available.

This release represents a year of development effort and over 8,300
individual changes. It contains a large number of improvements that
are listed in the release notes below. The areas of major changes are:

  - Core modules in PE format.
  - Vulkan backend for WineD3D.
  - DirectShow and Media Foundation support.
  - Text console redesign.

This release is dedicated to the memory of Ken Thomases, who passed
away just before Christmas at the age of 51. Ken was an incredibly
brilliant developer, and the mastermind behind the macOS support in
Wine. We all miss his skills, his patience, and his dark sense of
humor.

The source is available from the following locations:

  https://dl.winehq.org/wine/source/6.0/wine-6.0.tar.xz
  http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/wine/source/6.0/wine-6.0.tar.xz

Binary packages for various distributions will be available from:

  https://www.winehq.org/download

You will find documentation on https://www.winehq.org/documentation

You can also get the current source directly from the git
repository. Check https://www.winehq.org/git for details.

Wine is available thanks to the work of many people. See the file
AUTHORS in the distribution for the complete list.

----------------------------------------------------------------

What's new in Wine 6.0
======================


*** PE modules

- The core DLLs, including NTDLL, KERNEL32, GDI32, USER32, etc. are
  built in PE format. This should help a number of copy protection
  schemes that check that the DLL files on disk match the in-memory
  contents.

- There is a new mechanism to associate a Unix library with a PE
  module, to make it possible to call Unix libraries from PE for the
  functions that can't be handled with Win32 APIs.
  These libraries are found by replacing the PE module file extension
  with .so, for instance ntdll.dll -&gt; ntdll.so. They have to be
  located next to the PE file on disk.

- Winelib modules no longer link against libwine.so, or require it at
  run-time. This is a backwards incompatible change, meaning that
  modules built with Wine 6.0 won't run on older Wine versions.

- The libwine library is no longer used, but it's still provided

Recommended Readings: books, podcasts, and more

Note: this is from my personal blog here.

Prologue

When I finished writing “Some things I’ve learned in college,” I thought it was one of my least interesting posts to date. Surprisingly, it was one of my most viewed and has generated the most discussion of all (as measured by Reddit comments, here).

As has been noted by many a wise sage, page views and comments are not a perfect measure of a piece of writing’s quality, or overall value. However, the value of writing to someone who never sees it is zero, so the two do have something to do with each other.

In hindsight, this shouldn’t have been so surprising. Of course I already know what I’ve learned in college, so I’m not going to find it particularly interesting to write down. On the other hand, I often learn quite a bit by writing blog posts, both through object-level research and simply by spending time thinking about a topic.

But, of course, no one else knows I learned in college. So, I am currently trying to consider which aspects of my own life, despite being “obvious” to me, others might find interesting. The lowest hanging fruit is media recommendations. Tons of blogs have lists of favorite books, articles, or other blogs, and, as I’ve noted before, I spend a little too much time listening to audiobooks and podcasts.

So, here are some things I recommend you read or listen to. But first, how to listen to them:

Programs

Pay especially close attention if, like me, you prefer listening to reading.

Libby

  • A gem of the internet: tens of thousands of free books and audiobooks, and not just boring old ones in the public domain.
  • You need a library card, but it took me about five minutes to get for someone else when helping him set up the app.
  • Digital copies are limited for most books, so the popular ones can take a while. But there are always quite a few good nonfiction audiobooks available, and some have unlimited copies so there is never a wait.
  • Also, it lets you adjust the reading speed in 5% increments (1x, 1.05x, 1.1x, …), which is surprisingly useful. Any app that still limits you to 1.25x or 1.5x speed needs to learn this lesson.
  • Most of the books below I listened to on Libby, so I won’t bother finding the link to the

Please help me figure out how to access my old BTC and BCH

Hi all, I'm hoping some of you can help point me in the right direction. *disclaimer, I am trying to be secure with my information so apologies if I am being vague

I recently found my old laptop (macbook pro) + USB sticks which I used to store BTC and BCH wallets back in 2017. I also found seed words and passwords written on paper. It appears that I used electrum (version 2.9.2) for 2 BTC wallets, and electron cash for 1 BCH wallet.

When I installed the latest wallet from electrum/ electron cash, they don't open - I think this is because the MacOS is out of date.

I am able to open electrum wallets through the old version of electrum on my USB stick. I use the password I have written on paper and I am able to see my wallet as it was in 2017. Electrum cannot synchronise - I am assuming because the version isn't supported?

As I said before, I cannot open electron cash on my mac, so I downloaded electron cash wallet on android and tried to restore from seed. For some reason I have 24 words written down (not 12), and when I open the wallet there is nothing there and no transaction history.

So now I am not sure what to do - and I'm not sure why I even have the wallets on USB sticks? I have so many questions but I'll try to minimise:

  • Is it not safe for me to open the wallet (old version of electrum) while my laptop is connected to the internet?

  • What would be the safest way to gain access to my wallet again? I am considering purchasing more BTC.

  • Is there some way I can check if the BTC/ BCH are still in the wallets (not hacked)?

I've been out of the crypto game for so long now I don't even know where to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

EDIT

Thanks everyone for your help! I've now managed to access my old wallets and they are synced to the network - woo! I even managed to open my BCH wallet, which I couldn't access due to 2fa issue - but I followed another tutorial and now moved the BCH to a new wallet.

Next thing I guess will be to try and claim some forked coins that I am owed!

Thanks again everyone :)

Autochess: Market Status and Design Analysis [effort post]

This article was written with the feedback of ~300 highly engaged players from the different autochess reddit communities (TFT, DOTA Underlords, Chess Rush...), which participated in interviews and on a poll whose results are available here. They’re especially thanked by name at the end of the article.

In January 2019, Drodo Studio’s Dota Auto Chess mod became insanely popular. Many companies (including household names like Valve, Riot, Ubisoft and Blizzard) rushed to release their own versions.

It seemed like the beginning of something big like MOBA or Battle Royale. But it has been more than a year now and the hype seems to have vanished completely. As quickly as it rose, it went away…

This is the first on a series of articles where we will analyze the autochess genre. Here we will be exploring the genre’s history, its current market situation and its audience. And also, what are the core design issues that autochess suffers and that no one has been able to solve yet.

https://preview.redd.it/tc2c19k4ipg61.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=487539f51e104ee7d1aae1a6ded7447b1dee11ca

It really helps me if you check this article (or similar content) at my blog https://jb-dev.net/

A HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE

This wasn’t the first time that a mod got the spotlight and ended up becoming the foundation of a genre. It happened in several major, industry-defining cases before (some of which are Team Shooters, MOBAs, Battle Royale…).
But on some of these cases events unfolded differently. So we identify 3 distinctive eras related to the evolution of the industry:

1st Era (2000s): Assimilation

The company whose original software had been modded (or had a close enough game, like Valve) moved quickly to absorb the successful mods and turn them into even more successful products.

Since at that point creating a major game release was very complex (required an expensive development, publishing deals and an infrastructure to distribute the product), the deal was profitable for both sides.
But it meant the dissolution of the identity of the original creator team, which became embedded in the bigger company culture.

Cut-It Beta is now open!

Hey y'all,

My name is Sam, CTO at Offtime Roadmap. We just finished our first beta release of Cut-It and wanted some testers to give us feedback. Currently, we have a list of things to improve on (see here), but we're trying to get the program tightened up prior to our public release in June. With that being said, if you're interested, you can sign up here and you'll receive a download for Windows (Mac OS coming soon). It's free, and you can check our Virus Total listing here. If you have any questions, DM me or email [email protected]. If you want to leave feedback on the app itself, use the 'submit feedback' feature in the settings section.

Offtime's goal is to democratize debate, so we made this tool to make cutting cards faster and easier, so you can spend more time understanding your arguments and less time formatting them. We do this in 6 ways:

  1. AutoCite - gets a Debate-style & MLA citation in as little as sub 1 sec.
  2. AutoPoll - Grabs the full text of the article (w/o those pesky ads) in as little as sub 1 sec.
  3. AutoFormat - 3 different emphasis levels that have unique key-bindings for easy cutting.
  4. Card History - Easily search through any evidence you've cut to edit or export it - never lose a card again!
  5. AutoCopy - auto inject the latest version of the card into your clipboard - click free! No more Ctrl+C :)
  6. FULL Customizability - Set your own font, highlight color, keybindings, and more! Cut-It works for you, not against you.

Cheers & Happy Cutting,

The (possibly) most detailed guide on keeping your privacy, ever, for teenagers by teenagers.

TL;DR: The (probably) most detailed guide you have ever read on this subreddit regarding keeping your online (and offline) life private from friends, family and other people, whether that’s through the tor network, utilizing advanced windows utilities or by creating a “decoy” operating system, hiding your real one, protected by full disk encryption. We will go through encrypting files, circumventing parental blocking of your internet connections, hiding your internet traffic and reinstalling Windows. While I truly do urge you to act responsibly and consider that oftentimes there’s a reason for your parent’s actions (which surprisingly often just is that they care about you), I do also believe that online (and offline) privacy is absolutely critical (Trust me, I do; Otherwise I wouldn’t have written a 40 page guide on how to do it). Find it here:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mU8DGL57xspZvFsCzlrW90kq8W6LkLWz/view?usp=sharing

You have read the TL;DR yet? Well, ironically I do realize that it’s probably a little long, but it’s a good introduction to the monster I’m just about to present for you.

So now that you have just a little bit of an idea of what you’re about to read, let me try and describe as shortly as possible what this post is about. I sometimes wished that I personally saw some more content on this sub, that wasn’t just purely low-effort, reposted (and sometimes horribly awful) memes. Don’t get me wrong, those are the main reason that I’m in this sub, but just every once in a while it is nice to find something that was put a little bit of effort into.

So, well, I decided to try and create some of that. How successful that was, I will let you decide, but this was quite a bit of effort actually, so I hope some of you get to appreciate it. Originally this was supposed to be a not to big post about a few not to know tricks to have some privacy on the computer, but as some would argue I have a tendency, it quickly grew out of hand. So much in fact it exceeded the post limit of “only” 40.000 characters nearly 2.5 times so I had to supply a link to an online hosted PDF instead of just putting the text in here.

Now, you might be curious about what’s in the guide? Well, before we get to that we first have to make sure that we’re on the same page about a few things:

[Press Release] Taking your Engine Prime collection “On the road” has never been easier, even on M1-powered Macs!

With the increasing popularity of Denon DJ Prime players, more and more artists are choosing Engine Prime as their primary DJ preparation software. Engine Prime works fine for those who exclusively use Denon Prime gear. However, if an Engine Prime artist occasionally uses other brands of DJ software and players, they were faced with a challenge. Being locked into Engine Prime meant having to redo all the track preparation work for that other DJ software again.

The release of the overhauled Denon eXtractor Tool (DeXT) version 3.0 makes redoing preparation work a thing of the past.

The original Sync-back roots

Syncing back any cues/loops set on Prime gear to the artist's core DJ software was always the primary function of DeXT. This sync was limited though to history- and prepare lists, because these lists contain the tracks that are modified on the player. Another specific function of DeXT was finding the original tracks instead of using the tracks on the Prime performance drive (e.g. Prime 4 internal drive).

This "sync back" function is still available in DeXT, but now there also is …

… going from Engine Prime to Rekordbox.XML

We have updated the Denon Extractor Tool (DeXT) so it can now convert any selection of crates and playlists from an Engine Prime collection to Rekordbox.XML. Maintaining all DJ metadata including cues, loops, grid/bpm, star ratings etc. DeXT also maintains the selected crates, play-, history- and even prepare-list structure. The resulting XML file can be imported in Rekordbox directly. Using the additional DJ Conversion Utility, conversion to Serato, Traktor, VirtualDJ, or Algoriddim's djay is also possible.

All ATGR apps are now M1 compatible

Our tools were already Big Sur compatible. The new Apple M1 CPU, aka Apple Silicon, made a few apps not compatible with Macs using this processor. With the most recent updates the following apps now also work on M1:

▪ Rekordbox 6 to XML

▪ Denon Conversion Utility

▪ DJ Conversion Utility Streaming

We are proud to announce that all ATGR apps, including the ones above, now also run smoothly on Apple M1 equipped Macs.

The YouTube tutorial for DeXT is here:

Epic Cash network is back online, please read!

Dear Epic Cash Community,

We are bringing the network back online! Link below includes the necessary technical steps to get you reconnected to the Epic Cash blockchain. Please follow the instructions carefully and do not improvise:

# Summary

This release rolls back the chain to the last good state (height 861141).

This requires you to synchronize your wallet. In order to do this, perform the following additional step.

- The package contains an additional executable: `epic-wallet-tool`;

- **After** you have the new server version running normally;

- (windows only) Place the `epic-wallet-tool` executable in the same directory as your wallet executable;

- Execute the `epic-wallet-tool`.

# Epic Server 2.15 Release Notes

With this release, we address the issue of corrupt blocks that were found a couple weeks ago.

We do this by rolling back the chain the last good state (height 861141).

Because of the periodic compaction, we cannot roll back to this height directly.

Instead, we replace the existing chain data by a "canonical" one.

Instructions and details below.

## What's new?

- Automated chain data rollback using canonical chain data
- Check for bad headers and ban peers who send them
- Avoid loading subsequent chunks if headers_received returns false
- Update build instructions for macOS
- Fix graph weight for cuckoo cycles
- Change version checker domain name

## Update instructions

Please follow the instructions below when installing this new version.

Contact support if something seems wrong.

### Server

  1. Download the 2.15.0 package
        - Windows: https://d1ftoepmu0es39.cloudfront.net/epic-server-2.15.0.zip
        - Debian (Linux): https://d1ftoepmu0es39.cloudfront.net/epic_2.15.0-1_amd64.zip

23/M/🇧🇷 — Just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies, if these wings could fly...

Hello folks, welcome! (yes, Sherlock! I know, it's a very long ad)

I don't know exactly how to start this message, but let's try. I'm a normal guy, maybe with an above average curiosity. I live in a city called Belo Horizonte, it's the capital of the state of Minas Gerais. I love classic art and cities that preserve the traditional architecture of their people. Today there's a term for that, "Dark Academia". I sympathize a lot with this "movement", but I don't follow it to the letter. I'm too eclectic to fit a specific group.

I have already studied some French, Italian, German and Norwegian. Don't be surprised, it was just the basics. I have also studied the Hebrew, Russian and Korean alphabet. I didn't keep them for lack of practice, but they are easy alphabets, I want to return to studying these languages ​​(and many others) in the future. At the moment, the languages ​​I speak are Portuguese, English and Spanish. A secret: sometimes I think about the possibility of creating a conlang.

I still don't know which way to go academically and professionally, despite having many options in my mind. I have a hard time making decisions, depending on the subject. It's bad to feel paralyzed, but it's something that happens sometimes. And the worst part of it is that time doesn't stop, it's a little distressing.

I'm a communicative guy, I like to talk about a lot of subjects because I have several interests, from philosophy to cooking. From sports to video games. I consider myself both an introvert and an extrovert, and I know this can seem like something strange. It varies according to how comfortable I feel. When I’m in an environment where I don’t know anyone, I act very discreetly. But, next to friends, I’m a very charismatic person. If you send me a message, I’ll be talkative with you, after all, we will both be in the mutual interest of getting to know each other and consequently building a friendship, right? There’s no reason to hide in this situation. Besides, I’m also a great listener, I’d love to hear about your day, hear interesting stories that you have lived, hear your dilemmas and etc.

Believing that "tomorrow" will be a better day is not always an easy task, on the contrary. But honestly? I'm an optimistic person most of the time, I try to learn from difficult situations. Overcoming anxiety is a long journey, but I'm taking my steps in the right direction.

If there's one thing that I think is incredible, it's the possibil

A brief history of the Bulgarian personal computers ( IMKO - Pravetz line)

A short introduction.

Due to popular demand (in this post) In the following lines I will try to summarize the history of personal computing in Bulgaria. I will try to make it easy and entertaining to read but also informative. If I fail in doing so I beg your forgiveness as I am neither a writer nor a native English speaker. I will give some very basic information on the beginning of Bulgarian computing then jump to the era of the "Microcomputer"

The Beginning

As some of my compatriots will proudly (and in my honest opinion wrongly) point out that a Bulgarian is actually responsible for the invention of the first electronic computer - namely John Atanasoff. I find this statement wrong on several counts. First of all it is debatable whether the Atanasoff-Berry (early 1940s) computer was truly the first automatic electronic computer, as it was not programmable or Turing capable. And secondly that John Atanasoff did not consider himself to be Bulgaria. His father was.

Generally speaking the history of computers in Bulgaria begins in the late 1930s. When various IBM punched card mechanical and electronically-mechanical devices were imported in Bulgaria and used for accounting and statistical data. Those devices were used until the 1960s. In the said 60s Bulgaria acquired more machines like the French Gamma 10, and IBM 1460. The true beginning of Bulgarian computing is considered to be the establishment of the "Computing center, of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences" (Изчислителен Център при Института по математика на БАН) in the year of God 1961. Three years later in 1963 the first Bulgarian computer was born - Vitosha (Витоша). It was a machine with 1500 vacuum tubes/valves/lamps (depending on where you live and how you call them), it had 32 instructions using indexed registers and the main storage was a magnetic drum with the capacity of 4096 words.

Fast forward.

To understand what happens next we have to go back. And start with this man:

He was born in 1911 in a town whose name will be revealed later in our story in what was then the Kingdom of Bulgaria. Now the Kingdom of Bulgaria will enter WWII and will exit as the People's Republic of Bulgar

Unc0ver status for iOS 11-14.3 for ALL devices. I'll update this as it comes.

Edit: Unc0ver v6.1.1 has been released.

Current status: 100% - It's out now!

Tips:

This is for EVERY device. This is ONLY up to iOS 14.3 and there is NO way to downgrade/upgrade to this iOS unless you have blobs saved. If you don't have blobs saved, you cannot, by any means, save them. Which sucks, but whatever iOS you are on, just stay put (14.4 for example, just don't update your iOS).

Secondly, its the easiest to download this and install it using AltStore. Get AltStore from the official website, then download Unc0ver v6.0.0 from the official website.

Lastly, there's been known issues with jailbreaking a device because certain settings are on. If you're having trouble with jailbreaking, make sure you:

  • If you are using AltStore, make sure you ENABLE YOUR CERTIFICATE! Do this by: Settings > General > Device Management > Tap your Apple ID (it was used to install AltStore on your device) > then tap "Trust Developer"
  • Delete any downloaded iOS update and disable any future updates on your device.
    • Delete any updates from: Settings > General > Storage > then look for the iOS software download > Tap "Delete Update"
    • Disable future updates: Settings > General > Software Update > Automatic Updates > Turn off "Download iOS Updates"
  • Turn off Find My iDevice: Settings > Top button (should be your name/Apple ID) > Find My > Find My iDevice (iPhone, iPad, etc) > Then turn off "Find My iDevice (iPhone, iPad, etc).
    • You can reenable this after you jailbreak!
  • Turn off Siri: Settings > Siri and Search > Make sure you turn off:
    • Listen for "Hey Siri"
    • Press Side Button for Siri
  • Try turning Airplane mode on, and ensure that WiFi is off.
  • Try deleting Safari data: Settings > Safari > then tap "Clear History and Website Data"

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How can I downgrade/upgrade to iOS 14.0-14.3? >> You can’t anymore without blobs as those iOS versions are no longer signed.
  • I have blobs saved, how do I upgrade/downgrade with blobs? >> No idea :/ there is a post on r/jailbreak though that describes how someone did it! Found it: Direct link to the post for convenience: [https://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/comment

I knew I wasn't crazy ─ Fast Startup is likely the culprit of all your Windows 10 Updates issues. I have been saying this for months but never had the proof to post with it. Having trouble with Windows Updates? Here's a guide for making Windows Updates a worry of the past.

^(Last Updated:) ^(January 8th, 2021 at 3:04PM EST. •) ^(Revision:) ^(3 •) ^(Reason:) ^(Fixing grammar, spelling and punctuation mistakes)

Part 0: Introduction

This blew up overnight while I was sleeping so I'm just now getting back to everyone. Before we get started, I want to address some items the comments have brought to my attention that I maybe should've included in the initial post.

Let's start out with some details about myself:

  • Who are you?
    • I'm 30 years old, I've been in IT for almost 15 years and I'm currently a Cloud Solutions Engineer for one of the larger capital cities in the United States. I'm studying now for my final certification which, if passed, will allow me to become a Microsoft Certified Cloud Solutions Architect. My day-to-day tasks almost always include one-on-one collaboration with Microsoft employees who are already Cloud Solutions Architects as we work to design and build out both new and existing cloud (Azure) infrastructure. This includes SCCM, Intune, AAD, Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD), VPN routing, etc.
  • Why should we trust you?
    • You most certainly don't have to. In fact, I recommend double-checking my research and coming to your own conclusions ─ as with everything else in life, do your own research and don't blindly trust people you don't know. But, if after your research and your testing, you come to find that everything I've said is both accurate and helpful, then the ball is in your court to share that below.
    • All that said, amidst the items listed above, I'm also responsible for ensuring the stability, reliability and performance of almost 10,000 Windows-based devices and close to 1,000 MacOS-based devices in our environment. These devices can be found at our airport, E911 centers, Police precincts, in the Ambulances, Police cars and Firetrucks. Understand that I cannot make changes to these machines that will risk the abrupt halt of operations for any of those people or places.

Okay, enough about me. Next, let's discuss what this post is and what it isn't:

  • What IS this post?
    • An attempt to alleviate some of the issues causing the seemingly endless Windows Update posts we see here.
    • Suggested settings configurations that I have found, through my career in IT and (especially) what I've learned throughout the process of stabilizing a sea of 10,000 machines.

Tdarr V2: Distributed Transcoding System

Overview

Hello!

As promised, Tdarr V2 is now out. You can find the setup instructions here:

http://tdarr.io/docs/

Reasons for V2 here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/44029503

For those on Docker, from 31st Jan onwards, the 'latest' tag will contain Tdarr V2. Until then it will contain V1. Giving a 1-week heads-up.

It's been a pretty intense couple of months of working on V2 and I know that this release won't work for everyone but, as long as the Server and Nodes can read/write from your libraries and transcode cache, it's running pretty well. I already have a version in development with some new stats for Patreon supporters but for the next couple of weeks, I'll be focusing purely on bug fixes from whatever weird situations come up.

Here is a quick rundown of the features:

  • A new modularised system whereby Tdarr Nodes can be placed on multiple machines (cross-platform) which work together with Tdarr Server to process your files.
  • 'Click- to-run' binaries for Windows, Linux, macOS and Arm (no need to manually install extra dependencies)
  • An updater module which makes upgrading to the latest version much easier.
  • Embedded database with live backup (no need for MongoDB)
  • GPU and CPU transcode workers so you can maximise hardware usage (there's an option to allow GPU workers to do CPU tasks too which pretty much turns the worker into the old 'General' worker type from V1)
  • If using multiple plugins, files are fully processed in the transcode cache before being moved back to the library or output folder (instead of the 'back and forth at each plugin step' method of V1 )
  • New files are kept in the cache until you accept them so you can review them (there's an auto-accept option).
  • Plugins can now auto-install any required external dependencies
  • New UI and themes
  • New API endpoints (see the docs for more details)
  • A tonne of bug fixes which plagued V1 (see the changelog for more info).

Due to a large number of changes, V1 is not compatible with V2, sorry about that.

I have worked on this every day since mid-November. Here are some insights:

~ 400 hours (would like to have done more but I have to work around my full-time job)

~ 900 commits

~ 70 PRs

-15 iterations/versions

- What seems like a tonne of pizza

Building a cross-platform application like this is incredibly time-consuming - you imple

Looking for light weight desktop VM and container host

I've been a Mac power user and administrator for 20 years. I've been running Mac servers and pretty much skipped the virtual machine revolution until about 5 years ago when I finally got a VSphere server going. I've only got 1 Mac server left (running in a VM on Mac hardware running ESXi) and migrated the rest to CentOS or Ubuntu. The Mac server hasn't been migrated to Linux mainly because of COVID-19 and everyone working from home put that project on the back burner.

I have been trying to switch to a Linux desktop too. I have been running different Linux distros as VMs on my main computer and every blue moon try to migrate everything I do over but I've never gotten there. I have at least settled with Lubuntu because it's the most responsive distro in a VM I've tried but I think it's because it uses LXQt. Moving over has really stopped at this point: finding a fast enough VM distribution (for comparison, I also run a Mac VM on the same computer and it's slow too, but it's more usable than some Linux distros).

I've never tried any SUSE distribution and I've only recently even looked into the distribution, mainly because they purchased Rancher and I was looking into RancherOS but was told that product is dead and that MicroOS is a close replacement.

I see there's an LXQt version of GeckoLinux and I'm wondering if it will work as well. I will try it out tomorrow probably.

Anyway I'm wondering if anyone knows if GeckoLinux with LXQt would have comparable performance to Lubuntu and if not if it's possible to get better performance by changing things around.

Next. A few months ago I finally figured out Docker enough that now it's all I want to work on. I want to switch all of my Linux VM servers to containers now. But I don't need the scale of Kubernetes. I finally set up a Ubuntu production server to do this. However the last step was a security audit (there's a Docker container that does it) and there were so many issues I decided maybe a general purpose OS might not be best. So I decided to look into dedicated container operating systems.

I really liked the idea of RancherOS and I wanted to use it but I couldn't really find any instructions how to get it going. I was told on the Rancher Slack that I shouldn't go that route and to look at MicroOS. So I started looking at it and SUSE in general.

I'm still a little overwhelmed with it all. To be completely honest it leaves a really bad taste in my mouth that Red Hat just killed CentOS 8 and basically brok

Stardew Valley 1.5 with splitscreen co-op released on PC!

Stardew Valley 1.5 is now available on Windows, macOS, and Linux!

Feel free to ask here if you have questions about the update. Remember to use &gt;!spoiler here!&lt; to mark spoilers (it'll appear like >!spoiler here!<). Please be aware that thread titles cannot be hidden by a spoiler tag and must be kept spoiler-free.

About the update

  • What changed in 1.5?
    See the announcement for a spoiler-free summary, and the release notes for a detailed list including spoilers.

  • How do I download the update?
    Steam and GOG Galaxy will automatically update the game. This may not happen right away for everyone, you can restart Steam or GOG Galaxy to force the update to download.

  • Do I need a new save?
    Nope, older saves will update automatically and all new content is available without starting a new save, with some small exceptions:

    • If you want to use the new Beach Farm it's easier to start a new save, but you can migrate an older save with save editing and temporary mods.
    • When creating a new save, you can now set advanced options like randomized community center bundles. You can't enable these for an existing save without modding or save editing.
  • How does splitscreen co-op work?
    Setting up a save for splitscreen is the same as online multiplayer, you'll need an empty cabin for someone else to join. See the wiki's multiplayer page on setting up a farm for multiplayer if you need help.

    Splitscreen or local co-op is a new feature in 1.5 that enables multiple people to play together on one device. You can play a single save in both local and online multiplayer, the total limit for players remains 4. Here's how to set up local co-op:

    1. Connect a controller to your computer.
    2. Open the save you want to play on.
    3. Press E or Esc, then select the Options tab. Scroll down to the Multiplayer section and select Start Local Co-op.
    4. Press start on your connected controller.
  • When will 1.5 release on console and mobile?

How we almost got acquired by Facebook and failed. Here's what I learned.

This is not a happy ending story.

The beginning

It all started back in 2014. I had a startup whose clients were advertisers. It was a platform for users to review video ads in exchange for online points that could be redeemed for money or coupons. Watch and ad; rate it; be rewarded. Simple.

After 100 campaigns I kept hearing it would be wonderful to connect their offline ads (e.g. TV ads, billboards, magazines, etc) with our platform. Advertisers wanted real insights and analytics from their offline advertising investment.

As dedicated founders we started working hard on this concept: “from offline to online with your phone”. Within 4 months we had our first version. I remember showing it to our friends and constantly hearing “Wow this is brilliant! It’s like Shazam but for videos”. I was ecstatic!

The investment

The revenue was coming in but it wasn’t recurrent. It was difficult to enter the yearly advertising budget. Advertisers assumed our platform as an experiment (mainly to get feedback) and not as a serious distribution channel — despite the fact we picked at 100,000 registered users.

We needed investment to grow and build the new technology’s infrastructure. It wasn’t cheap to maintain a technology that recognized millions of videos within 4s. More on this latter.

In 2015 we raised $0.5M from angels and led by a VC. This allowed us to grow our team to 7 members and accelerate product development.

We were ready to storm the world!

The pivot

In retrospect, our product decisions after the investment killed our startup. We shifted our focus from the local videos ads review platform — where we had 100k users and 60 clients — to a global video recognition consumer product.

We created an App — like Shazam — that recognized millions of videos. Our goal was to have advertisers make their offline assets interactive and invite their audience to download our App and use it to unlock “something”. The practical end was the same as the QR code. How cool is that? Scan a video and “magically” show related content on your screen? Exciting, right?

Wrong. Very few people downloaded the App. It turns out the barrier of downloading the App was too much for the reward (whatever the brand wanted to offer). Don’t get me wrong, we did some cool campaigns with Kia, Unilever, or Volkswagen. But again these were one-shot campaigns. Basically an investment in innovation from the brands.

After long days discussing our future, we thought of somethi

23/M/🇧🇷 — Just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies, if these wings could fly...

Hello folks, welcome! (yes, Sherlock! I know, it's a very long ad)

I don't know exactly how to start this message, but let's try. I'm a normal guy, maybe with an above average curiosity. I live in a city called Belo Horizonte, it's the capital of the state of Minas Gerais. I love classic art and cities that preserve the traditional architecture of their people. Today there's a term for that, "Dark Academia". I sympathize a lot with this "movement", but I don't follow it to the letter. I'm too eclectic to fit a specific group.

I have already studied some French, Italian, German and Norwegian. Don't be surprised, it was just the basics. I have also studied the Hebrew, Russian and Korean alphabet. I didn't keep them for lack of practice, but they are easy alphabets, I want to return to studying these languages ​​(and many others) in the future. At the moment, the languages ​​I speak are Portuguese, English and Spanish. A secret: sometimes I think about the possibility of creating a conlang.

I still don't know which way to go academically and professionally, despite having many options in my mind. I have a hard time making decisions, depending on the subject. It's bad to feel paralyzed, but it's something that happens sometimes. And the worst part of it is that time doesn't stop, it's a little distressing.

I'm a communicative guy, I like to talk about a lot of subjects because I have several interests, from philosophy to cooking. From sports to video games. I consider myself both an introvert and an extrovert, and I know this can seem like something strange. It varies according to how comfortable I feel. When I’m in an environment where I don’t know anyone, I act very discreetly. But, next to friends, I’m a very charismatic person. If you send me a message, I’ll be talkative with you, after all, we will both be in the mutual interest of getting to know each other and consequently building a friendship, right? There’s no reason to hide in this situation. Besides, I’m also a great listener, I’d love to hear about your day, hear interesting stories that you have lived, hear your dilemmas and etc.

Believing that "tomorrow" will be a better day is not always an easy task, on the contrary. But honestly? I'm an optimistic person most of the time, I try to learn from difficult situations. Overcoming anxiety is a long journey, but I'm taking my steps in the right direction.

If there's one thing that I think is incredible, it's the possibil

CLI & GUI v0.17.1.8 'Oxygen Orion' released (includes patch for memory exhaustion attack)!

This is the CLI & GUI v0.17.1.8 'Oxygen Orion' point release. This release predominantly features bug fixes and performance improvements. Users, however, are recommended to upgrade, as it includes further mitigations for the issue, caused by the recently observed misbehaving (malicious) nodes, where the daemon (monerod) reports that the sync has 1-2 blocks left (whilst actually being fully synced). Additionally, a patch for the monerod OOM (out of memory) issue is included.
