@steveway7 Yeah it’s looking pretty intense as that storm cell moves through.

It’s not branching lightning, either. Just big fat orange bolts with biggish gaps between them.

Bear in mind, this was taken on an iPhone zoomed in maybe 400%, so 1/16 of the frame area. Roughly. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

Now, of course, everything’s in Python, so the whole thing is mis-indented by definition.

That would’ve been a fair call though.

I dunno that this DeMorgan is exactly the same corporate entity as the one from years ago. I suspect not.

via TweetDeck

“The results of this research is what Bitcoin and the Blockchain are about. A free system to transfer and maintain property.”

via TweetDeck

“There is a reason we have been building supercomputers and haven’t been bitcoin mining.”

via TweetDeck

“Freedom is the core of what bitcoin … is about. [We] have been working for several years now on solutions to the issue of property.”

This is the only blog post on DeMorgan Ltd’s website: “Human rights and property”, dated 23 Oct. demorgan.com.au/blog_151023_hu…

But The Media etc go on and on and on and on and on about every single problem without waiting for a coroner’s report.

It was a simple calculation, I recall. Police estimate of E trade -> number of pills per year -> c.f. no of problems, and same for aspirin.

via TweetDeck

As a @newscientist editorial said years ago, MDMA is safer than aspirin. Drug safety alone, it’s corner-shop stuff. twitter.com/SnarkyPlatypus…

via TweetDeck

That probably means he was working for the secret alien conspiracy, and I blinked slightly as they erased my memories.

via TweetDeck

I don’t know what I mean by that, precisely. You know when you have an emotional memory, but nothing specific can be recalled? That.

via TweetDeck

But it triggered my vague memories of Wright as being seen as a curious figure in the infosec community, even back then.

via TweetDeck

It really wasn’t much more than meeting with a friend who worked at DeMorgan, visiting their office, and laughing at the whole idea.

via TweetDeck

Should I mentioned the discussions I had about maybe working for DeMorgan back when it was your usual sort of infosec outfit? Nah.

via TweetDeck

So @GizmodoAU also has a “Craig S Wright is Satoshi Nakamoto” investigation, linking to DeMorgan Ltd. gizmodo.com/this-australia…
