  • Xata is a serverless database for serverless apps. (Xata.io)

    Serverless is one more step of wishful thinking beyond cloud. There's no serverless, there's just someone else's servers and you have no control over what happens on them.

  • People said I was mad to embed SMB in the kernel, but I embedded it all the same. It sank into the swamp. (Phoronix)

    It has - surprising no-one - a security vulnerability. Involving .. which is the first thing you check when handling a file path on Unix-like systems.

    And the patch to fix that has a buffer overflow bug.

  • You can no longer run Windows 11 in VirtualBox. (Bleeping Computer)

    Funny thing, I was checking my desktop system for that AMD chipset driver bug yesterday, and I noticed that it has TPM 2.0, the critical requirement for running Windows 11.

    I still can't run Windows 11 because it doesn't support my CPU either.

  • The Surface Pro 8 may or may not have leaked. (Thurrott.com)
