Harley Quinn has taken down the Joker and Gotham City is finally hers for the taking...whatever's left of it that is.

Harley's celebration in this newly created chaos is cut short when Penguin, Bane, Mr. Freeze, The Riddler and Two Face join forces to restore order in the criminal underworld. Calling themselves the Injustice League, this group now stands in the way of Harley and her crew from taking sole control of Gotham as the top villains of the city.

Resident Alien: Birds of a Feather

“Birds of a Feather” is a beautiful love letter to family and community. The show is doing an excellent job of incorporating human-like nuances into Harry’s character. Little by little, he’s starting to acclimate to his surroundings and, well, become one of them. Naturally, this will provide fodder for internal conflict when Harry inevitably finds his device. Can he really decimate the planet after befriending some humans? (geekgirlauthority.com)

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Unemployment

This week from the white void: The Democrats pass the COVID relief bill, although a few (like Manchin and Sinema) prevented it from containing a minimum wage increase. The FBI identifies Trump-supporting white supremacist groups like the Proud Boys as the ones who stormed the Capitol building. And Now: Neil Cavuto Really Loves Adele. Main story (21m): Unemployment in the US, and how terribly it serves people in need. And Now: Rachel Ray's Complicated History With Baking.

Thanks for all the FanFare discussion about WandaVision

For the past nine weeks, I've been eagerly looking forward to reading and discussing WandaVision episodes with y'all and it's been the most fun I've had on the site in while. Tons of insight, jokes, links, backstory and viewpoints in lowkey, yet engaging way. Thank you so much!

Lastpass replacement with specific needs

Lastpass, my long-time password manager, is starting to restrict free accounts to only desktop or only mobile. This is inconvenient but perhaps it will result in a better user experience since Lastpass stubbornly refuses to autofill my bank app. What I'm looking for is a password manager that syncs between desktop and mobile, and can autofill Android apps (my bank app), Windows apps (like 365), and within desktop and mobile browsers.

Fun uses for a NAS?

I recently bought a Synology NAS to use for storing backups and serving media, but I’m still sitting on lots (& lots, & lots) of unused space (and a smidge of RAM). While I’m very happy with the NAS doing exactly what it’s doing, I’d also like to play with this toy a bit. Do you have a NAS / know a NAS owner that has done something a bit more intense and interesting with their device?

Advice please on plans to "pivot" email service and cloud storage

I currently use Google email accounts with Android devices and Thunderbird on Windows 10 machines. I have Dropbox free level. I'm planning to abandon the paid Google emails and Google Drive storage and go to Fastmail, and also upgrade to Dropbox Plus level. Questions within about pros/cons of my proposed approach, and I welcome any other advice or tips.

NP Complete

Zero Knowledge Proofs - "By their name, they are proofs that reveal absolutely no information to the verifier... at the end of it, you know nothing more than you knew before except that the claim I made was true... It seems counterintuitive to say the least because we somehow associate conviction with information transfer."[1,2,3]
