  1. Hi Tech Paul… This crap never ends.

    T-Mobile has confirmed a data breach affecting more than a million of its customers, whose personal data (but no financial or password data) was exposed to a malicious actor.

    Hope all is well…

    • The least secure code (easiest to pwn) is database software. So we put more and more info into databases.

      Happy Holidays to you and yours, Rick.
      And yes I’m good. 10 years without a television. Keeping tech at arm’s length. Focusing on living things/creatures. Life’s good.
