  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    I've read a bit on nuclear war planning (mostly Daniel Ellsberg book), and what I remember from it is that there's no such thing as a "limited nuclear exchange". Pretty much all plans were something like "up to this (very...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    That is precisely what I am afraid of, and why I have been going on "For Heaven's sake, defuse this - DON'T push it in that direction" for 8 years now. And, while few people would say openly that...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    Two extra things: Cogent stops providing IP transit to Russia: https://www.kentik.com/blog/cogent-disconnects-from-russia/ (and some extra analysis) Russian entities are hijacking IP space: https://twitter.com/SpamhausTech/status/1499061697243459590 The last one is considered abuse, and a termination reason in pretty much all ISP contracts. And routing...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    It tells me something about how these young men were treated by the Russian Army that they were expecting to be abused by their captors. The russian/soviet army and command are pretty well known for their treatment of their...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    How easy/difficult is it for the Ukrainians to make use of the abandoned and captured military equipment of the russians? Should be easy, they inherited the same stuff from the USSR and it seems that they're still using it....
  • Commented on Bad news day
    This just in - in Bulgaria, the ministries have sent a list with 46k IPs to be blocked. The law used is the one for cybersecurity, and the exact part from it is for protection against cyberattack. This is the...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    One of the things I do with the older of my kids (who's almost 5) is to watch planes on flightradar24. These tankers have been there in the last few months, first above/near the Channel, and now almost exclusively around...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    There's something can't understand, and here could be someone who can enlighten me. It's said that Putin wanted/expected a "short victorious war", and it doesn't seem to happening. My question is, WHY isn't it? Russia has a tremendous army, all...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    This is also a reply to MattS. People try to compare EU with USSR. As someone living in the "most loyal soviet satellite", there is pretty much no comparison possible between the two. There is still no idea how long...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Can't comment too much on the unemployment in Western Europe (which, looking in EuroStat, doesn't seem to be exactly right), but being from Eastern Europe, there's basically NO similarity between USSR and EU. For Eastern Europe, EU is basically a...
  • Commented on SF For Nothing, Stories For Free
    Seconding "oh my god, Worm". I pretty much read it non-stop for two weeks, almost everywhere, and it was worth every minute and hour of it. "Pact" is somewhat less polished and not that fun to read, but "Twig" is...
