One of our daughter’s friend’s moms comes over every Sunday for 4-5 hours of couch co-op. Our house spends a *lot* of time in the Borderlands. Even more than Dragon Age or XCOM.

I just got my flu shot! Please get one this season, no matter your age or health. Getting a flu shot doesn't just protect you, but through herd immunity protects babies who are too young to be immunized, ill folks with things like cancer, and old folks who are at extra risk.

Per Zetter, saying that voting systems behind a firewall don’t connect to the internet is ‘like saying that the Golden Gate Bridge isn’t connected to San Francisco, because there’s a toll bridge that you have to cross to get to the bridge’...” 31/

“...ES&S claims any equipment behind that firewall is not connected to the internet. But according to Zetter, ‘It’s a definition that is unique to ES&S, and of course it serves their purpose of wanting to insist that the systems aren’t connected to the internet.’” 30/

“In plain language, Jones explains, essentially all elections infrastructure is online — from computers that program voting machines and by extension voting machines themselves to the server that receives the votes to reporting systems that decrypt and tabulate the tally.” 29/
