Daily Tech News 5 March 2022

Top Story

  • Weekends are Question and Answer time, unless I have to work, or I just worked two 18 hour days back-to-back, or I need to pack up and move house to a house I don't have, or my internet is down again, or my entire state is under flood and storm warnings, or every gluten-free foodstuff I normally eat is out of stock at the same time (possibly related to eastern Australia being underwater right now), or it's freaking World War III, but if it's all of those they cancel out somehow so Q&A is on.

    Drop your tech questions in the comments today and I will attempt to answer them tomorrow, unless I am struck by lightning. Again.


  • In the first sensible move of any of the participants in this whole debacle Russia has banned Twitter and Facebook. (CBS / MSN)

    And over 140 other domains including the BBC. Sadly we are not on the list, but this is just new additions and we may have been blocked previously.

    The BBC has responded by restarting its shortwave news broadcasts. (The Verge)

    Everything old is new again.


  • Russia doesn't have anything like China's Great Firewall but US companies are stepping up to help with leading provider of bad internet backbone connections Cogent cutting off access to Russia. (ZDNet)

    They're justifying this by a broad reading of new EU regulations, but the regulations never actually say Russia has to go back to acoustic couplers and hope.
