Is the week over? Are we there yet, kittens?

We at The Cryptosphere Global HQ are somewhat distracted lately. Between hardware crashes and CMS’s failing to M, let alone Control S, we’re about fed up with technology lately, and if we see The Cloud, we’ll expect it to rain on us and not in a good way.

As well, we have to admit we’re looking forward to our one-week vacation coming up Monday, and we may be neglecting our usual cyberwar and hacktivism research in favour of perusing pumpkin ales on Pinterest and selecting the perfect oxblood colour for our sweater and matching leaf-scuffing boot ensemble, but we’ll try to focus long enough to deliver the top news headlines today.

To the headlines! With a steaming hot pumpkin spice latte, harmonizing beautifully with this fabulous oxblood sweater I just bought on Amazon. Where was I?

Oh, right, focusing!
