    I have my old Palm IIIc around here somewhere. It had a cool fold out keyboard. I used that thing back in high school to take notes in class!

    Uh. Apparently no one with a Twitter verified blue check account can tweet right now. This is slightly hilarious. Reporters are using other people's accounts.

    This has to be a compromised admin account. My money on the tech bros at Twitter not having a way to track changes made by an admin account. So they can't tell which account is compromised. Or they don't have the ability to override an admin account from a different account.

    Good thing it was a pretty calm weather day over most of the country. Pretty much anyone giving out reliable severe weather info on Twitter is a blue checkmark, including the NWS.

    Either that or they have a special auth service for the blue checks and that was compromised.

    I wonder if Trump's twitter account has some additional security on it to make it more difficult to breach.

    Because if the hacker did get access to Trump's account, I could see them easily raising money with:

    @realdonaldtrump: WE NEED YOUR BITCOINS! ANTIFA AND BLM ARE BRINGING IN 10 MILLION ILLEGAL GANG MEMBERS OVER THE BORDER AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. DONATE BTC TO HELP BUILD THE EMERGENCY WALL AND STOP THEM FROM INVADING AMERICA

    or possibly just

    @realdonaldtrump: I HAVE DECLARED THERMONUCLEAR WAR ON ALL COUNTRIES. NUKES ALREADY IN THE AIR. EVERYONE WHO LAUGHED AT ME AND AMERICA WILL PAY. VERY BIG, VERY GREAT NUKES.

    and just wiping our species out in one swoop.

    I mean that's what I'm thinking. Seems really curious that his wasn't overtly hacked and also maybe Twitter should get rid of him for that reason alone

    I am going to awesome that because Twitter is a plague that needs to be cleansed from the earth and if this gets things moving in that direction I am all for it.

    Probably worth an update, since some people were worried that the hackers had got through MFA - looks like the method was social engineering + Twitter giving their admins a backdoor into accounts, so no actual password hack or authorization bypassing needed. this thread is pretty thorough:

    I don't understand why the admin functions are just...open to the internet or part of the Twitter interface when logged into an admin account or whatever.

    It’s not really IoT, it has a very limited proximity based comms option.

    As hackathon entries go, I’ve seen a lot dumber.

    Seems like just another method to collect more in depth data on people, without actually providing it's intended benefit. But I guess that's most IoT stuff

    About a hundred years ago near the end of March, I ordered a replacement bracket for the wrist rest on my keyboard. Since they're a UK company, they gave me the part for free but charged about ten dollars for shipping. Reasonable, and this wobbly wrist rest has been bothering me ever since it broke.

    It seems like it should be here by now, but I kind of feel like a dick emailing them about it. "Hey, I ordered a non-essential overseas plastic widget during a global pandemic and it isn't here. Is that...is that because of the global pandemic? I just want to make sure it's because of the global pandemic and not because someone forgot to click a button. Not you, probably. Someone else."

    But, you know. I did give them ten bucks.

    I suppose it's possible it arrived and someone in this neighborhood is the most disappointed package thief in history.

    I emailed them again and it turns out they don't have any tracking information on my bracket, and they're all out of brackets.

    So they're going to send me a whole replacement wrist rest.

    This is theoretically a good outcome, but I've been hurt before.

    Day 108. After waiting a month, I emailed them back to let them know I never received any tracking information. Apparently my order got screwed up again, but they're pretty confident they'll be able to ship it out in a couple of weeks once they finish moving warehouses.

    I think we're both just grimly interested in how long we'll keep pretending this is ever going to happen at this point.
