When you go into the @TMobile store and every customer in there is dealing with the same bricked @LGUSAMobile V10 issue...

Ugh. My @LGUSAMobile V10 is stuck on the LG boot screen, even after hard reset. Googling says it's common failure mode. Bummed.

Hanky code for cybering

Dan Lyke comments (0)

Obama Created a Color-Coded Cyber Threat 'Schema’ After the DNC Hack. FACT SHEET: Presidential Policy Directive on United States Cyber Incident Coordination. U.S. issues guidelines for responding to major cyber attacks.

Whoah, wait: "white" is "an unsubstantiated or inconsequential event" and "black" is "poses an imminent threat to the provision of wide-scale critical infrastructure services, national government stability, or to the lives of U.S. persons"? Who wrote this, metropolitan police departments?

(And it's the Inkernet: The threat level is *always* high.)

Latest "Why Are People Into That" observing that blowjobber isn't an identity people use. Always thought provoking about subtle semantics.

It's been a while since I registered a new domain, so I naively thought I could use my real contact info, like I have in the past... Sigh.

What science says to do if your loved one has an opioid addiction:
