Albany Artifacts Sale: May 18 at Lost & Found

If you haven’t see the insane Albany memorabilia @hemstitchmill has been posting on Instagram, take a look. There’s an intense amount of really cool and weird Albany-themed artifacts. And as it says on the flyer, they’re all for sale. There’s clearly been an intense amount of work put into finding and curating all these Albany-related items.

Dig through the Instagram, make some mental notes, and on 5/18, head to Lost & Found to celebrate/gawk at/buy all the weird and cool stuff that will be on display.

Former St Rose student destroyed $58,000 worth of computers, facing 10 years

From The Verge

Vishwanath Akuthota, the former student, now faces up to 10 years in prison (with up to three years of supervision after release) and a fine totaling up to $250,000. He was arrested and taken into custody in North Carolina on February 22nd, just over a week after he went on a spree of inserting the “USB Killer” device into 66 of Saint Rose’s computers around various locations on campus. Such devices can be easily and freely purchased online and can overload the surge protection in many PCs.
“Akuthota will pay back the college for the damaged computers”

Akuthota, 27, apparently made video recordings of himself inserting the malicious USB device into the computers and said “I’m going to kill this guy” as the PCs were overloaded and permanently ruined.

Yikes.
