    "not everyone who has a vagina is a woman, and not every woman has a vagina". Jeez, I wish they'd told me that at school...

    What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

    Get Carter 1971 Another Michael Caine movie. Very good. Some observations. The nudity reveals that the girlies didn't know about preternatural youth, silicone implants and muscle tone, back then. And if you've seen any of Guy Ritchie's films, like "lock stock and two smoking barrels", you'll understand that this movie, is English, gritty, and makes Guy Ritchie's efforts, look like, amateur hour.

    Liz Elizabeth Warren - does not have the Hillary face or unlikeable attitude - has a brain If you've been following the 'Wait but Why' guy's posts, you'll see that the 'thought pile' has moved.

My limited exposure to the processes that run in the background of Mac OS X gives me to understand that there are multiple security efforts that run, separately in the dark, to keep Apple's stuff relatively clean. I often see, when my desktop slows down, a process, cleaning malware, that is not normally visible to the user.

    Lao activist vanishes in Bangkok

    And another reason not to engage with the Lao authorities :: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/1750409/no-proof-in-jailing-of-engineer-in-laos No proof' in jailing of engineer in Laos PUBLISHED : 15 SEP 2019 AT 06:41 NEWSPAPER SECTION: NEWS WRITER: ANUCHA CHAROENPO Kittidet (right): Thailand won't help him Lawyers are calling for the immediate release of a Thai engineer who has been detained in a Lao detention centre for over 10 months after being accused of causing about 1.7 million baht in damages to a Lao company's business. Kittidet Latthi, 48, was arrested and detained last October in Vientiane. His lawyers say the statutory period of his detention has now expired. Peerapat Thongteerasakul, a lawyer for Mr Kittidet, said Lao police have been unable to provide the engineer's legal team with clear evidence to substantiate the charge that his client had acted illegally as accused. "The investigation into Mr Kittidet's case has taken over 10 months, but they [the Lao police] can't provide evidence to confirm Mr Kittidet did anything illegal. He should be released as quickly as possible," said Mr Peerapat. He added that he had appointed a Lao lawyer to act on his behalf in defending Mr Kittidet and provide him with legal advice. The Lao lawyer informed him the statutory period of Mr Kittidet's detention expired on Feb 24, and Lao authorities had not issued a warrant to extend Mr Kittidet's detention. This means his client should have been freed or granted bail if the authorities did not want to conduct a further investigation into the matter, he said. Mr Kittidet should have the right to a fair trial in Laos' justice system, he added. "The Lao laws should apply equally to all nationals, and he should be able to bring his dispute before a court. "He should not be detained illegally to compensate for damages that have not been proven," Mr Peerapat said. "Over the past months, the Lao lawyer has submitted letters to both Lao police and prosecutors, calling for justice and fair treatment of Mr Kittidet. We have also asked them how much progress has been made in the investigation. "The Lao police told us they had forwarded the case to prosecutors for consideration, but all we know is that there is still no clear evidence or witnesses to substantiate the charge against Mr Kittidet," he said. "The damages to the business he was accused of harming were also not specified in the police case report that was sent to prosecutors." Mr Peerapat added the prosecutors informed the Lao lawyer that Mr Kittidet is a foreigner, and the company he worked for issued a letter to them, that he has caused 1.7 million baht in damages to the company's business. They decided not to release him on these grounds. If he fled, they would have to take responsibility. He said the Lao lawyer repeatedly asked prosecutors to provide him with the evidence and witnesses that would specifically support the allegations made against his client. He said the lawyer also questioned the prosecutors about what types of damages were involved. However, the prosecutors did not reply or issue an indictment against him. He went on to say that his Lao representative has also sought bail for his client, but has not received a response on that request either. Mr Kittidet was hired by the Lao company to work as an engineer in 2013. He was arrested on Oct 20 last year at a Lao immigration checkpoint in Vientiane while travelling back to Thailand. He is now being detained at Phon Tong detention centre in Vientiane. His wife, Khwanta, 47, a native of Buri Ram's Nang Rong district, has been travelling between Laos and Thailand to visit her husband at the centre throughout his 10-month detention. "I still don't know why my husband is being detained. What is the particular offence that he committed? We miss him so much and we worry about his safety," Ms Khwanta told the Bangkok Post. She said she has spent several million baht on lawyers' fees and travel between the two countries. "How much more money will we have to spend in the future? My husband is the main earner in the household. "If the case remains unsolved and he is not released shortly, my family will be in trouble," Ms Khwanta said. Throughout the ordeal, she and her legal team have sought help from state organisations including the Royal Thai Embassy in Laos, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Prime Minister's Office, the Office of the Ombudsman and the Office of the Attorney-General. It is unclear what actions they have taken, but the family appears to be getting little help. Last month, they sent another letter to request the assistance of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Thailand to help Mr Kittidet. They asked the commissioner to address Mr Kittidet's unfair detention and help facilitate his urgent release from the Lao detention centre, and help him undergo a fair justice process. "I also want to ask the Thai agencies: Why are they not giving a helping hand to Mr Kittidet after learning of his plight?" said Mr Peerapat. ---

    Yes, Bolton, (John not Michael) is a warring arsehole. I didn't know he was a shirker in the Vietnam thing. As opposed to a peacenik, whom I would have some sympathy for. After all, North Vietnam wasn't threatening New York. And setting the rights and wrongs of that war aside, I do have sympathy and gratitude to the ordinary people and those who did serve, respectively, for what happened, as that conflict defined the modern world in my opinion, certainly changed Laos. A note on strategy - I think that maybe the Dems are deliberately confusing the issue on Trump/Impeachment/etc etc. With the intent together Trump to explode and take down the GOP with him. Long game.
  10. Just when we clever clogs computer fellas think we know every thing :: Apple has issued a response to the reports of a vulnerability in its iOS operating system, saying the attack affected fewer than a dozen websites that focus on content related to the Uighur community. Google researchers found that a set of websites hacked in February were being used to attack iPhones, infecting them with malware. The iPhone malware implant, which has not been given a name, was able to escape the iOS sandbox and run as root, which meant it has bypassed the security mechanisms of iOS and has the highest level of privileges. It was capable of stealing: All keychains, Photos, SMS and email messages, Contacts, notes, and recordings, It can retrieve the full call history and is capable of doing real-time monitoring of the device location. It also includes the capability to obtain the unencrypted chat transcripts from a number of major end-to-end encrypted messaging clients, including Messages, Whatsapp, and Telegram. This means that if you’re infected, all your encrypted messages are not only collected by the attacker, but they’re transferred in clear-text across the Internet. https://securitybrief.co.nz/story/apple-issues-clarification-on-extent-of-ios-malware-infection ___ Worth a read, someone, presumably the Chinese, can fuck with you, from a website. SO, imagine that Thai360 says 'click this to log in' to you, one day...

    I thought is was just that Trump liked the way Bolton appeared on TV, with some small reservations about the moustache, but overall he appeared good and tough on FOX

    You know things are going badly pear shaped when the bad man fires the other bad man :: Trump fired his national security adviser John Bolton. "I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House," Trump tweeted. Bolton offered a slightly different version of events shortly after Trump made the announcement. "I offered to resign last night," Bolton tweeted, "and President Trump said, 'Let’s talk about it tomorrow.'" Bolton is the third person to have served as Trump's national security adviser since his election. The two have had a series of disagreements during Bolton's tenure, including over how to handle sensitive foreign policy matters involving North Korea, Afghanistan, and Iran. Trump did not name Bolton's successor but said he plans to appoint someone "next week." (New York Times / NBC News / CNN / MNSBC) I'm sure the Taliban are happy with "next week" - time to blow up some more people with car bombs. I'm sure little Rocketman is happy with "next week" - time to set off some more missile into the sea. I'm sure the Iranians are happy with "next week" - time to enrich up some more Uranium.
