not as many as i’d like (that i know of) but it is broadcast widely, its community radio so its a bit different than normal but its been sounding amazing lately ‘best i’ve heard’ so i am really happy the station has gotten better
@Daze it could be nice to see what happens, what if there was no internet? like i’d be ok but the youngins might have a meltdown idk
There was a segment on 60 Minutes about a Facebook whistle-blower who revealed some of the algorithms are aimed at angry posts. Something about hate posts not being taken off. Maybe some hacker collective brought Facebook down?
Facebook is “down” because they need to change their algorithms in light of the 60 Minutes interview last night with the whistleblower. Also, Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify before Congress this week (I’m sure Instagram is also down(Facebook owns Instagram)).
The news just said it was down due to DNS issues, but I wasn’t paying attention so I didn’t catch all the details.
DNS is the Domain Name System. In a nutshell every computer on the Internet is identified by a number called an IP address, but it is hard to remember all these numbers so they invented the DNS system because domain names are easier for humans to remember (eg: facebook.com). When you type in a domain name it is associated with an IP address so your browser knows what website (server) to access.
If they have updated their DNS information it can take up to 48-72 hours (theoretically) for that DNS information to propagate around the planet to all the other DNS servers, so Facebook could be down for a while for some people…usually it doesn’t take nearly that long though.
