Dear Santa, thank you for the dolls and pencils and the fish. It's Easter now, so I hope I didn't wake you but... honest, it is an emergency. There's a crack in my wall. Aunt Sharon says it's just an ordinary crack, but I know its not cause at night there's voices so... please please can you send someone to fix it? Or a policeman, or...
Back in a moment.
Thank you Santa.

The Reboot Heard Round The World

There is apparently a security flaw in every recent Intel microprocessor, and by "recent" I mean "since November 1995".

There's a patch, but it's messy, and slows software down by 10%-30%, and requires the server to rebooted.

When you ask "which server", the answer is "all the server".  Alllll the server.

This weekend.

Expect some things to be offline.
