  • Commented on Trust Me (I'm a kettle)
    Late to the show as usual, but I recently came across this article describing how bog-standard MicroSD cards (not the fancy ones that phone home to the cloud) can be hacked as well. As it turns out, those cards have...
  • Commented on Making history personal
    Slept in as a tourist: I'm pretty sure this is the (cheap and nice!) hotel in Bytow Castle in Poland, dating to the late 14th/early 15th century. Lived in: My old apartment in the centre of Utrecht in the Netherlands,...

    A couple of years ago, you said that over 50% of the predictions in Halting State had come true. How much is that now? Haven't read HS in a while yet, but I did recently read Rule 34 (signed by...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Merchant Princes
    I bought the full set of three on May 31st at Waterstones in Amsterdam (ABC had run out so I got an autographed Rule 34 instead :). Then I went on to visit Brouwerij 't IJ for one of the...
  • Commented on It's a Wonderful Life
