12 years ago, Twitter’s office used a Mac Mini to tunnel into the servers. One day, an IT guy found it in the closet. “Anyone know who owns this?” “Unplug it. Someone will show up.” Everyone lost access to servers. Huge crisis. It became known as the “Load Bearing Mac Mini.”
The driver was not given a summons for having an illegal plate. When I asked the NYPD about why they did this, they responded with a basic narrative of what happened, only they referred to the driver as the "victim."

Jack Dorsey has nothing to do now. The SF Police Department is on unofficial strike. Why doesn't Jack become San Francisco Batman and fight the crime the police refuse to fight?
Incredible. The Chief Executive of Hong Kong says police are investigating whether rugby organizers in *South Korea* who played a protest song violated the national security law. Remember, the NSL is written to apply globally, not just Hong Kong or China. scmp.com/news/hong-kong…
