    From Sean Hannity: Sean Hannity 01/20/2021 @seanhannity I’ve spent my entire career fighting for free speech, even for those I strongly disagree with. We stand with Parler in the fight for free and open dialogue. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ From Senator Rand Paul Senator Rand Paul 01/20/2021 @RandPaul Competition is the surest means to preserving free speech. Everyone, left and right, should be horrified at Big Tech’s attempt to stamp out speech. I wish Parler and all other innovators success in keeping the marketplace of ideas open and uncensored.
  • The lie that lingers: 3 in 10 Americans falsely believe the election was riddled with fraud (only because it was)

    01/20/2021 4:20:33 PM PST · by Libloather · 76 replies
    There are millions of Americans who will refuse to believe this sentence: There is no credible evidence of any significant fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Different people will take issue with different words. Some will reject the idea that the evidence that’s been presented by President Trump and his allies in conservative media and on Capitol Hill isn’t credible. But it isn’t; amateur affidavits aren’t credible evidence any more than tortured numerical analysis is. Others will debate the word “substantive,” willfully claiming that the existence of any fraud - which exists at a small scale, as it generally does...

    I have a home network consisting of my main router (wifiMain) and 2 additional routers connected as access points (WifiHome & WifiOffice). Both access points are wired into the main router. However, I have the access points named with a separate name (WifiHome & WifiOffice). When I travel to different parts of my house I have to manually connect to the one with the strongest signal. If I name all 3 of them the same, will I stay connected without having to reconnect to the appropriate one? In other words, will I stay connected regardless of where I am in...
  • Ebay blocks seller from providing pdf manual from potential buyer

    I've been an ebay'er since 1998. Never have I encountered so much censoring and blockage from ebay as there is now. I ask the seller for an install manual, iow in pdf form. Ebay blocks my message. Seller wants my email address, ebay blocks. Seller wants to post it in the listing, ebay blocks. There is no way that I can see to learn more about this product and its application for me. So I cannot buy. Any freeper have a suggestion ?

    Newsweak via MSN ^ | 1/17/20 | Benjamin Fearnow
    Colorado Congresswoman Diana DeGette, one of nine House Democrats selected to prosecute President Donald Trump's second impeachment case, said her argument is simple: he told the rioters where and when to stage the insurrection. "Donald Trump told those people to come to Washington to stop the certification of the election. Then when they all got to the White House, invited by him, he told them to march up Pennsylvania Avenue and to stop the count and he had all kinds of references to violence and everything else. So, they're all guilty," DeGette told MSNBC Sunday. "We can't let this go,"...

    In yet another inciting tweet from left-wing celebrities, far-left actor Alec Baldwin chose civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday to describe a “dream” he had which included a noose hanging outside of a courthouse during President Donald Trump’s “sedition” trial. Inciting his radical Twitter following, the progressive activist and Saturday Night Live and Boss Baby star took to Twitter on Friday to share his vision which included the president undergoing trial for sedition while a noose — made of recycled protective masks — hangs from a makeshift scaffold.

  • Russia mulls fines for citizens using Elon Musk’s StarLink internet

    01/16/2021 10:31:40 AM PST · by BenLurkin · 45 replies ^ | 01/13/2021
    Elon Musk’s ambitious StarLink programme—which envisions a network of satellites beaming internet to every point on earth—challenges this ability of the Russian state to self-isolate its internet at demand. With over 900 satellites already in orbit, StarLink conducted a beta test of its ability to beam internet terrestrially in October last year. Now, Russia is mulling a fine on citizens who dare to use Musk’s space-beamed internet, as the national Duma view it as a threat to national security, according to a report published in the Russian edition of Popular Mechanics. The fines could range from $135-405 for ordinary users,...

    In the summer of 2014, I gave birth to a baby boy. He was born with a perfect Apgar score, after a very easy delivery. But my labor had not been smooth—in fact, throughout the day and a half of contractions, I believed there was something decidedly wrong. I also felt that way as I held him for the first time, and he writhed violently under my hands. In a video taken about 10 minutes after he was born, he can be seen lifting his head up off my chest. “Ooooh, look at how advanced he is!” someone can be...
  • Windows 10 (and prior) bug corrupts your hard drive on seeing this file's icon (Zero-day, not fixed)

    Bleeping Computer ^ | Jan 14, 2021 | Ax Sharma
    An unpatched zero-day in Microsoft Windows 10 (and prior) allows attackers to corrupt an NTFS-formatted hard drive with a one-line command. In multiple tests by BleepingComputer, this one-liner can be delivered hidden inside a Windows shortcut file, a ZIP archive, batch files, or various other vectors to trigger hard drive errors that corrupt the filesystem index instantly. "Critically underestimated" NTFS vulnerability In August 2020, October 2020, and finally this week, infosec researcher Jonas L drew attention to an NTFS vulnerability impacting Windows 10 that has not been fixed. When exploited, this vulnerability can be triggered by a single-line command to...
