One fine Monday morning, Ars Technica Senior Technology Editor Lee Hutchinson came to me with a problem: the colors in his text editor, in his humble opinion, had Begun To Suck. In Lee's 20 years or so of Vim usage, he'd gotten accustomed to comment lines in his code and configuration files being rendered in dark blue. But after upgrading a machine to Ubuntu 20.04, Vim started rendering comments in cyan—and since the "Identifier" syntax category also rendered in cyan, he was unhappy enough about it to decide to change the defaults. At first blush, Vim seems to adhere to roughly the same configuration standard that many if not most Unixlike systems and applications do—there's a set of systemwide configurations in /etc , which can be overridden individually per user by changes made in an optional configuration file in that user's home directory. In Vim's case, that's ~/.vimrc —just like Bash configurations can be overridden in ~/.bashrc . But when Lee tried to make his One … [Read more...] about Configuring vim: The right way, the wrong way, and the Hutchinson way
The family of a 20-year-old man filed a lawsuit against the investment Robinhood on Monday, saying its popular investment app was responsible for the student's suicide. Alex Kearns, who was studying at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, killed himself last June after he believed he had racked up roughly $730,000 in trading losses on the app. The distress caused by the apparent loss and automated responses from Robinhood prompted Kearns to take his life, the lawsuit says.

Internet voting for American citizens is exceedingly dangerous. That's the opinion of David Jefferson, a computer scientist and chairman of Verified Voting, an election watchdog group based in Carlsbad, Calif. "I consider voting security to be a national-security issue," said Jefferson. "So it has to be treated with that level of seriousness." Special cases only, for now Members of the U.S. military and private U.S. citizens who live abroad can submit absentee ballots via email to 27 states and the District of Columbia, according to Verified Voting. Two more states are considering accepting emailed absentee ballots from those groups. Arizona allows members of the same two groups to upload scanned images of completed absentee ballots to a state website, which then routes the images to county election boards. No one can yet simply log onto a website and click on his or her preferred candidates, but some states are considering developing such systems for military and … [Read more...] about What’s Wrong With Online Voting?
