Happy Tuesday, kittens! As long as this computer works, we will be here for you with link roundups and breaking hacktivism and cyberwar news. This computer, however, has been intermittently striking (in solidarity with the people of Greece? we’re not sure, it refuses to communicate with us except via ouija board with a mediator present). So, while we can be here we will. Wish us luck.
