  • Cisco: We fixeded it!

    Testers were using Curl to exploit an open vulnerability in Cisco routers, so Cisco "fixed" it by blocking web requests that identified themselves as coming from Curl.  This is about as effective as trying to stop a pyroclastic flow with a paper sign saying "Volcanoes Keep Out".

  • PyCharm 2019.1 is out.

    New features include....  Nothing much, really.  But the previous version was already very good.

2 Actually this is kind of serious, since China's government is entirely capable of rounding people up and shipping them off for re-education, for any reason or none at all.

I think you are being optimistic about what Xi's New PRC would do to them.  Given how heavy handed the PRC has been against homosexuality, I would not be surprised at all if the 're-education' part includes a dose of sterilization, to make sure there is no chance artificial insemination might allow those DNA strands to be passed on to future generations.
