All Splunk platforms need to be patched due to two bugs that result in wrong parsing of timestamps and possible data loss:


– This issue affects all un-patched Splunk platform instance types, on any operating system.
– Splunk Cloud customers will receive the fix automatically; on-premises customers need to update or modify their setup.

It bothers me a little every time someone calls me a software engineer. I'm not an engineer. What I do is not sufficiently based on actual science, research, and solid, tested formal models to be called engineering.

"Software developer" and "hacker" and "klutz" are all accurate.

Folks, I’m seeing a lot of people recommend setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false to fix the Firefox extensions issue.


It disables signature checking on extensions which means that you open yourself up to malicious extensions if you install any new ones or if you have auto updates on.

Either follow the instructions here nixnet.xyz/ by @amolith

Or go the officially recommended (but less private) route: mastodon.ar.al/@aral/102039553

Have to say that this New York Times Article pretty much sums up modern capitalism.

Boeing wanted to make sure that their new non-union shop in S.C. remained non-union, so they didn’t bring in any experienced staff from their existing plants. Now their planes are flying time bombs.
