No, seriously... what kurds?!

It's an electronic circuit. That poo poo can actually break. I presume my ISP is a cheapskate in that regard, or whatever. That said, one replacement was because they stuck some more of whatever provider information is on there, needed for proper operation, because with the older one, the phone wouldn't hop onto the HSPA network. --edit: Also, SIM format changes. I went to get proper ones, instead of cutting these down to fit whatever SIM slot du jour.

I've literally never had a Sim break on me in the 13+ years of having a mobile

I've broken one before but it was just stupidity (sim tray has room for 2, was replacing one of them and didn't entirely reseat the other one before shoving it back in and ended up scratching it horribly)

I've had a SIM die on me before.

Now if my e-SIM broke, THAT would be a feat.

This particularly rapid unintelligible patter isn't generally heard, and if it is, it doesn't matter.

what?


Luckily for those with PA gear it seems that this one was fixed in the same versions that fixed the last one, so anyone who's already handled that last one shouldn't have anything to worry about.

Not a huge fan of the random Furry stuff included in that article. Definitely takes away some of the credibility behind it.

On the contrary, you can trust what they say precisely because someone had to agree with what they said enough to transcribe it?

Does anyone have an opinion on running phishing simulations, specifically whether suppressing Gmail's security warnings on messages sent by the simulation is good or bad?

Send it so it appears trusted. You do not want users to learn to always look for a machine learning applied "this might be phishing" banner, instead of looking at warning signs like the body of the message, wording, what it's asking for, mouseovering domains, looking at email domains, etc.
