I'm going to threaten to kill myself so the admin increases the uptime.
I wonder who could be behind this
They targeted traders.
We're a group of people who will sit for hours, days, even weeks on end performing some of the hardest, most mentally demanding tasks. Over, and over, and over all for nothing more than a little digital token saying we did.
We'll punish our selfs doing things others would consider torture, because we think it's fun.
We'll spend most if not all of our free time min maxing the stats of a fictional character all to draw out a single extra point of damage per second.
Many of us have made careers out of doing just these things: slogging through the grind, all day, the same metrics over and over, hundreds of times to the point where we know evety little detail such that some have attained such trader nirvana that they can literally win these trades blindfolded.
Do these people have any idea how many beers have been smashed, systems over heated, disks and evidence destroyed infrustration? All to latter be referred to as bragging rights?
These people honestly think this is a battle they can win? They take our high frequency trading? We're already building a new one without them. They take our devs? Traders aren't shy about throwing their money else where, or even making the tech our selves. They think calling us racist, mysoginistic, r*pe apologists is going to change us? We've been called worse things by our upper management. They picked a fight against a group that's already grown desensitized to their strategies and methods. Who enjoy the battle of attrition they've threatened us with. Who take it as a challange when they tell us we no longer matter. Our obsession with proving we can after being told we can't is so deeply ingrained from years of dealing with big brothers/sisters and friends laughing at how pathetic we used to be that proving you people wrong has become a very real need; a honed reflex.
Traders are competative, hard core, by nature. We love a challange. The worst thing you did in all of this was to challenge us. You're not special, you're not original, you're not the first; this is just another SEC investigation.
Backstory: HW4 is the latest hardware revision for Teslas. This revision is included with the newest cars, and will probably drop with the cybertruck. Elon also dropped a program that lets you transfer your lifetime FSD to HW4 a while back (useful to know).
List of HW4 seethe:
So the Model S Plaid (HW4) I bought 2 months ago and paid $15K for FSD is essentially useless for another 6-8 months. The free 3 months for FSD for my wife (male)'s Model X (HW4) is going to expire before it's even capable of being used. As much as I love all of my Teslas, that doesn't sound right.

Updates on Summon, Auto Park? These are also missing alongside FSDBETA.
He usually say “2 weeks” to mean “6 months”… “6 months” might mean “3 years”
you need more engineers. 6 months… what about all the people that paid for $15k FSD. I'm a huge supporter, but this is half a year more than what we have already been waiting.
Looking like at least another year for HW4 cars to get FSD Beta keyed on prior missed timelines. Sucks if you updated to a HW4 car and expected parity with HW3.
There's a lot more drama in the thread but I'm tired tbh.
HWc3ls stay winning
What's the rules on linking malware for research? I get hit up by sexy Indian dudes and Nigerians tryina get me to open malware, and I like to upload it to the cloud and open it with a VM to see what it looks like. I assume the answer is "nope" but thought I'd ask. This stuff just interests me and thought I'd share if others are interested.
Screenshot is an example. Sexy Indian Dudes have been making the rounds with malware made to steal FB accounts so that they can run ads on your account under your CC. Some white woman reported losing $10k overnight after being dumb enough to run this shit on her PC. This one could just be a keylogger, but I haven't even looked at this one at all. I'm kinda bored with them, but I know some nerds here might like to look at the code. This one seems like a Word macro that probably downloads malware.
They didn't write down the password or any recovery phrases. This may be the stupidest way to go broke.
Or the smartest way to have $39M after your company dissolves and you retire to Peru.
