    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    This is terrifying... not that I have anything to hide jesus ... but it's just going to spiral from here to the next giant privacy violation.. we'll probably be using China's facial recognition social punishment system in 10 years probably too.. or some form thereof..

    Happy Quakiversary!

    Quake was the game which got me into the voodoo1 card - used to play three player DM at my friends house over coax... We all had voodoo1's and p90s... I liked quake but didn't get super into it like I did Quake 2 (on a Riva 128 back in 97 but was still playing when I had a Celery 450 and TNT2..)...
