So the hacking group Impact Team lived up to their threat and released 9.7GB of Ashley Madison (ashleymadison.com) website data to the Dark Web. Ashley Madison is a dating site geared towards people in relationships who want to have an affair – their motto is “Life is short. Have an affair.”
Last week I got myself a Raspberry Pi 2, the credit-card sized computer-on-a-card that can run a number of operating systems and comes with a 900MHz CPU, 1GB RAM, Ethernet port, HDMI output, 4 USB sockets… it’s an amazing little gadget.
So I got sick of waiting for Windows 10 to download, I saw it had appeared in a hidden folder, but was waiting on Microsoft to flip the switch for New Zealand. A bit of googling revealed that you could download the installer from Microsoft’s site (if you already had your computer approved). The trick is that you have to make sure your locale/region/language etc is set to English (US).
Once that was done, the install went well. We can’t use Cortana in New Zealand, which sucks, but then I have gone off Windows over the years, I’m happy with my Mac. My PC is for gaming, so the next step is to test all those games out! If only I had time… :/
