How the first gen ipod was reverse engineered to run #Rockbox:
1. Someone figured out that when loading a particular HTML page (for viewing on the device), the device would reboot. It crashed. A buffer overflow in the HTML viewer!
2. The device remembered what it did before the crash, so it would reload the HTML page again after boot. Unless you connected to it over USB and removed the HTML file it would stick in this cycle.
New @lickability blog post from yours truly: Designing Mastodon’s reply safety features
I have been having some trouble charging my EV at home. So far I have telephoned:
* The manufacturer of the unit (a small company in Wales).
* My local plumber (yes a plumber).
* A local EV charge point installer (electrician).
* and finally today, the manufacturer of the protection electronics for the charge point.
All have been exceptionally helpful and offered advice over the phone, the plumber even visited my house.
Now can anyone figure out why I called a plumber?
It is hard for us to identify our biases…why we demand more, scrutinize more, communicate less to one group over another. A good place to start is to be honest about the material harm this causes.
I am utterly burnt out from discussing these issues over a number of years but we are here talking about them some more.

Massive story coming from this one later - thank you for Senator Wyden for blowing this up. Apple, follow through with public disclosure so this doesn't get lost.
Part of the US (and other) governments spy worldwide using push notifications. That popup telling you your friend messaged on that super secure encrypted messaging app? Yeahhhhh.
