Do you guys know any good places to spend crypto? Like airplane tickets and hotels?
https://www.cheapair.com/

I buy all my plane tickets with bitcoin (and buy the coins right back on kraken, of course).

It always says no flights on my route. I wish I could see the German flights, if there are any....

Absolutely cannot find any flights whatsoever. The UI/UX of the site is so screwed up and inflexible, you type in something and hope they have that exact something available. What a crapshoot.

Even though real demand fell off a cliff quite a few years ago. Americans and much of the world citizens are completely tapped out, from all the personal household debt, student loan debt, and lack of income growth. They can't consume any more stuff. And they are starting to not even desire any more stuff, willing to live and be happy with less.

Yeah, nobody needs a faster computer or better smartphone these days.

Tech companies saw this years ago, and desperately tried to invent new types of products: smart watches, fitness trackers, VR... but nobody needs this shit.

Now they're trying foldable smartphones, ha!

Exactly. Not only that, but as a prerequisite to buying more stuff (e.g., furniture, household accessories, pictures/paintings, collectibles, etc.) you need somewhere to put all that stuff, i.e. a sizeable house like people their age bought back in the early 2000's. But with house prices doubling in just the last 5 years, young and middle-aged people can't even afford a nice/big house any longer. So they settle with a small apartment, where space is limited. Likewise many retirees are downsizing or have already downsized. People have cut waay back on buying more of everything: new clothes, new gadgets, new jewelry, new household items, new cars, etc.

It could literally be another decade or two before people start buying stuff again, but that would be predicated on income growth actually moving up again. Don't see that happening any time soon either.

With such rapid climate changes, it is best to collect money not for a big house, but for a ticket to another planet

 Based on what we currently know, you'd be best to take your chances here with your stash.  There's nothing out there for us - at least not for another 7 billion years or so until the sun torches earth and mars... scientist believe that by then some of the moons of Saturn and Jupiter may be inhabitable.

Just checked prices for local hotels on cheapair. It... appears that I have been overpaying.

What about the air tickets at cheapair? Have you been overpaying for them too?

 I have - quick and painless.  Also Bitrefill.com which I used to top up my Romanian phone before I arrived so that when I landed I would have phone and internet Smiley  Worked like a charm.  They have a pretty good selection of gift cards.  Coincards needs an e-mail address but so far I haven't been asked for any personally identifying information - same with bitrefill.

They're fucking useless if you're European. They don't list any of the most used airlines. You'll be able to fly from London to Oslo direct for $60 with Ryanair or Easyjet or go through them and spend 190 hours waiting in Baku for a legacy airline connection and pay $500 instead.

They can also stick $20-50 on most long haul flights too. One thing I'm not going to do is pay more for the honour of paying in BTC.

We might be on the cusp of said global economic reset now.

Everyone is worried about the virus, but the irony is that the second and third order effects would kill a lot more people than the virus.

Everything successful scales in layers.

plot twist (((they))) had a head start
Just got lucky in the lab they said.  Roll Eyes


"“Let’s call it pure luck,” he said. “We decided to choose coronavirus as a model for our system just as a proof of concept for our technology.”
But after scientists sequenced the DNA of the novel coronavirus causing the current worldwide outbreak, the MIGAL researchers examined it and found that the poultry coronavirus has high genetic similarity to the human one, and that it uses the same infection mechanism, which increases the likelihood of achieving an effective human vaccine in a very short period of time, Katz said.
“All we need to do is adjust the system to the new sequence,” he said. “We are in the middle of this process, and hopefully in a few weeks we will have the vaccine in our hands. Yes, in a few weeks, if it all works, we would have a vaccine to prevent coronavirus.”
MIGAL would be responsible for developing the new vaccine, but it would then have to go through a regulatory process, including clinical trials and large-scale production, Katz said.
Akunis said he has instructed his ministry’s director-general to fast-track all approval processes with the goal of bringing the human vaccine to market as quickly as possible.
“Given the urgent global need for a human coronavirus vaccine, we are doing everything we can to accelerate development,” MIGAL CEO David Zigdon said. The vaccine could “achieve safety approval in 90 days,” he said."

Indeed, I’ve shipped devices that provided canned boot sector data before - not as an exploit, but because the operating environment needed such in order to function. Of course, that was a ‘from the factory’ thing, not a field exploit.

Yeah, that's exactly what THEY wanted you to believe Tongue

Just kidding. Or maybe not... Was that "canned boot" somehow easily replaceable with a different one afterwards? Ie: the canned boot residing in another area of the HD which could be updated or using a custom tool? Or just reusing all the developed firmware, replacing the "canned boot" and generating the payloaded firmware?

Well, the canonical example would be to package a disk with a 'paddle card' protocol converter which sits between the drive and the system's SCSI | ATA | Fibre Channel | 1553 | Ethernet | InfiniBand | whatever bus. The canned boot sector would be resident in the FW of the paddle card. Used for things such as allowing contemporary HDDs to be used as boot devices on legacy systems built before the dawn of large HDDs.

When did scientists stop working to cure diseases?

Is it because they can make more money injecting the 99.99% of people that do not have the disease than they can make curing the .001%?

Yeah, well, THAT doesn't look like it would be so easily repurposed for malicious intents. But anyways, the point stands, not only it is theoretically possible but also psycodad has provided some links that would suggest it being exploited in the wild.. even if rare and requiring the exceptional talents and resources of the Equation Group (the malwaretech PoC was not even close).
