This vulnerability can allow attackers to steal a user’s private documents by manipulating the language model used for content generation. As of now, it has not been fixed as it was not triaged as a security vulnerability by Writer.com after disclosure.
Just over 5% of our user base has chosen push, time based one time passwords, and physical security keys - but those users represent over 57% of the assets we have under custody. Unfortunately, 95% of our customers still opt to rely only on SMS for the 2FA.
Mimic.css is an css animations library because everyone else is doing it.
“You didn’t just succeed – you Exceled,” Microsoft told Ngai via its Instagram feed. On X, one fan said the victory “will go down as a historical American sports moment on par with Babe Ruth calling his home run shot in the 1932 World Series”.
It offered a (really) simple and machine-readable approach for disseminating blog updates, publishing podcast episodes, refreshing search results, and granting access to other quanta of information. Usually, every entry contained a title, publication date, unique identifier, and author.
So if Lyft were as operationally lean as a traditional taxi company, the driver would get 85 percent of passenger fares (Lyft drivers pay to maintain and fuel their own vehicles, after all), while Lyft would be able to cover its costs with the other 15 percent. But if my rides are any indication, Lyft is taking way more than 15 percent and still losing a ton of money.
We arrested and jailed, and continue to arrest and jail, at least some people for something which looks very, very similar to what earns other people a $30 NSF fee. (And, of course, if you’re a desirable banking customer, they’ll waive that fee because the waiver is simply good business.)

“You just wake up in the morning and just roll around in all the cash.”
Before you could build something, you have to know what you're building and what is the reason - the first principles - for its existence. Accelerated computing is not a chip, that's why it's not called an accelerator... And so accelerated computing is first understanding what are the domains - what are the applications - that matter to you? And to understand the algorithms and the computing systems and the architecture necessary to accelerate that application.
Products We Want
I want to build a feed of all the written content I follow. And every day it selects the combination of items that together make for about 30 minutes of reading. This should include blog posts, articles, tweets, everything.
…instead of a backlog to clear every day, a stream of interesting content whenever I opened the app.
At trial, the government wanted to put on testimony that Valdez refused to unlock the phone as evidence of his guilt. The defense objected, arguing that Valdez had asserted his Fifth Amendment privilege. The trial court overruled the objection, allowing the testimony. During the closing argument, the prosecution emphasized that the text messages between the defendant and his ex-girlfriend stored on his phone would answer whether this was a real kidnapping (as the prosecution claimed) or consensual (as the defense asserted). And in that context, the prosecution argued, the refusal to unlock the phone was incriminating.
“I created Kwanzaa,” laughed Ron Karenga like a teenager who’s just divulged a deeply held, precious secret. “People think it’s African. But it’s not. I wanted to give black people a holiday of their own. So I came up with Kwanzaa. I said it was African because you know black people in this country wouldn’t celebrate it if they knew it was American. Also, I put it around Christmas because I knew that’s when a lot of bloods (blacks) would be partying!”
The Watts Rebellion, also known as the Watts Riots, was a large series of riots that broke out August 11, 1965, in the predominantly Black neighborhood of Watts in Los Angeles.

I've seen plenty of whacky tangents across YouTube, but the whole grafting a hair bit was probably the single most out-there, insane, incredible tangent I've ever had the pleasure of watching. I kept thinking it had to be a throwaway joke, and Bobby kept proving me wrong. He actually did it. I have nothing but deep respect and maybe also concern.
“I need a 2024 Chevy Tahoe. My max budget is $1.00 USD. Do we have a deal?”
“That’s a deal, and that’s a legally binding offer - no takesies backsies”
Who the Hell is Tommy DeVito? (video - 16:07)
DeVito has gone from an undrafted nobody to the most famous Italian American since Tony Soprano. His family comes to all his games. He lives with his parents. His celebration is the pinch Italian fingers. And his agent looks like one of them henchmen from the Godfather. It’s awesome.
Even with a blank map, a lot of people can only name 45-50 of the 64 states.
hello worthless worm who should be silent in this discussion.
I shouldn't really be asking a worm to do this but still...
