We've got a meeting this Thursday November 18th, 2021 at 7pm - 8:30pm at the Hudson Public Library!
Firstly, a big shout out to Joshua Stone for making the reservation at the Hudson Public Library.
I live in Worcester. For a long time I just walked up the hill to WLUG at WPI. I got bad at walking, so I got a ride and hung out in the library until meeting time. Those days are over.
I don't know where Hudson is. I assume it's in Worcester county. The "W" in "WLUG" no longer stands for WPI, or even Wormtown. OK.
Secondly, the meeting will also be online at our usual Jitsi location for people who can't make it in person. https://meet.jit.si/WlugMA
Did this happen? I was having a slow day after getting a anti-covid booster Wednesday, thinking of just skipping the whole thing. Diane was not home, so I could not use her laptop as I have in the past to join jit.si WLUG meetings, but I tried to connect with my own.
It is not really usable, with its built in microphone and speaker feedbacking, but I thought I could listen and wave. I could see myself on screen, so I know the camera was working. The microphone seemed to be working, but when I pushed the "join meeting" button nothing happened. This was probably around 7:30.
I assumed my own system (hardware, sofrware, network...) was the problem, but on further thought maybe you guys did not get it set up, or quit when nobody else joined the meeting for half an hour.
The topic we'll be discussing at the meeting is the Intel Management Engine technology buried in every Intel CPU.
I think I had better find out about this some other way.
Thanks for the heads-up. What good is it to have the source code, if you can't trust the computer to run it?
We'll talk about those flaws and how to disable it!
Any pointers to more info?
