Welcome back from your Memorial Day weekend, kittens! I feel confident over-generalizing like that since most of my readers are US-based and the ones that aren’t probably could use an extra day without more depressing cyberwar stories anyway. But we’re BAAAACK!
Who knows how long we’re here, though, as this week we’re on the move, checking over a potential new mobile HQ in the form of a 30′ converted Ford Schoolbus. ’74, I think. If the whole thing checks out, we will be going mobile, roaming throughout North America looking for news and free wifi. Perhaps we should christen her the HMS Warchalker. In any case, it should be resolved one way or another within this coming week, and then we’ll be back to our regular schedule of posting. Until then, take what you can get, Cryptosphere-wise.
