Thanks for the shout out! I'm happy to help set up meetings like this so long as there's interest! I've also informed my colleagues today (admittedly on short notice) about this meeting, so we might get some more attendees or listeners this time around!

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.
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
The topic we'll be discussing at the meeting is the Intel Management Engine technology buried in every Intel CPU. This technology includes a version of Minix running on a separate core inside your CPU you don't control. Moreover, with the right software, changes to your machine can be made remotely, even when the system is powered off (but connected to power). As with all this stuff, of course since the whole thing is cooked into the firmware, it's full of security flaws, etc.. We'll talk about those flaws and how to disable it!
We'll also likely touch on the Tesla Dojo D1 processing unit. They've made some claims that I've posted to the mailing list. Logan did some digging and it turns out their claims are not as blow your mind as would be first interpreted.
The Hudson Public Library does allow food and drink, so I will bring the usual pretzels and snacks. Afterwards we will be going to Rail Trail Flatbread https://railtrailflatbread.com/for dinner.
Toss me a line privately if you'll be attending so we've got an idea of how many people will be going out for dinner.
I look forward to seeing you there! Later, Tim. -- I am leery of the allegiances of any politician who refers to their constituents as "consumers". _______________________________________________ WLUG mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Create Account: https://wlug.mailman3.com/accounts/signup/ Change Settings: https://wlug.mailman3.com/postorius/lists/wlug.lists.wlug.org/ Web Forum/Archive: https://email@example.com/message/XG3JH3...
