Well it's no wonder that they hand it out for free then, eh? https://letsencrypt.org/

TempleOS was supposed to be the prophesied Third Temple of God, how dare the heathens call it a mere shrine?!

Heck yeah. Then you only have to tape over their webcams with one layer of tape and not two :)

Most offensive is that this is the reason I keep my 2006-build(yeah graphics card upgraded in 2014, but cheap ass) updated but only in the end of the month. After check for this kinda sh*t. I am afraid of mah games, but Steam Play is shaping up so I might stop caring....

Post-mortem: MRI disables every iOS device in facility : sysadmin [The sequel/update/post-mortem] by Mnemonic in SYSADMIN

Yes, exactly what it was according to this article about it!

It has a experiment video (i put it below) and a little more info in a nice article form.

I saw the original post. I was certain it was EMF and that the helium theory was nonsense.

But damn, it actually was the helium. This is one of the best comments of the thread:

In the original thread, the suggestion was MEMS resonators. The iphone 7 uses one of those instead of a quartz crystal for the 32kHz oscillator. Someone suggested it could be using that (which is time keeping accurate) to regulate the main clock. Get a little He in the package, and it might even just stop resonating altogether. no clock, no processing. you couldn't even wake the device from sleep or put it to sleep. It matches what is shown in the video very well.

Now, finding info about what resonators / oscillators iphones use has proven difficult. I've been looking for a phone to test this with, but finding a 7 or newer has been tough.

https://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/9si6r9/postmortem_mri_disables_every_ios_device_in/e8pak41/

So there's a micro-mechanical-electrical device that acts as the system clock instead of the typical quartz oscillator. And it needs a near-vacuum to work, and the helium fits through the seals and gets in to the oscillator, which in turn breaks the whole phone until the helium eventually escapes. Because that particular oscillator isn't the main one for the CPU, but does govern the power supply.

The best to me is the absence of safe mode hot key in 10. You have to do 3 ungraceful shutdowns to get a damn menu with anything useful. Really intuitive MS...
