Trump Warns That Florida Recount Could Set Dangerous Precedent of Person with Most Votes Winning | The New Yorker

Having just returned from the Armistice commemoration in Paris, Trump said that Florida’s recount has made America “the laughingstock of the world,” adding, “Putin told me they never do recounts in Russia.”

This is satire, but honestly, when Trump's involved, it's hard to know sometimes.


What if the recounts in Florida show the Republicans winning? Are people supposed to trust it?


Midterm elections: the Florida voter fraud allegations, explained - Vox

Republicians would rather take the whole system down with them rather than admit that they lost. This is dangerous and irresponsible.

With the recent IPCC report, we should be paying much more in a carbon tax if we're going to do anything to change the already shifting climate.

The Republican Party has given up on compromise.


The hard drive in my Windows machine that died and that I thought was the drive holding the OS actually wasn’t. It turns out, the surviving drive is the one with the OS, but the drive that failed had the boot record on it which is why I was unable to boot.

I was able to determine this by downloading the Windows 10 USB installer, booting up with that and inspecting the surviving drive. I managed to restore the boot information and boot successfully into Windows 10.

This is a relief. All that was on the other drive was game installs, most of which I can reinstall by downloading them from Steam or similar cloud libraries.


Facebook Is Giving Advertisers Access to Your Shadow Contact Information

The researchers also found that if User A, whom we’ll call Anna, shares her contacts with Facebook, including a previously unknown phone number for User B, whom we’ll call Ben, advertisers will be able to target Ben with an ad using that phone number, which I call “shadow contact information,” about a month later. Ben can’t access his shadow contact information, because that would violate Anna’s privacy, according to Facebook, so he can’t see it or delete it, and he can’t keep advertisers from using it either.

So a person can have nothing to do with Facebook, but Facebook will still build a profile on them. If that person wants to control that information, they have no choice but to create a Facebook account.

At this point I guess we really shouldn’t be surprised by the things Facebook does.
