Just finished watching the Black Box [worth it!].

I've noticed a few scenes related to IT&Dev. I thought I'll share them here.

So the BlackBox system runs on Fedora 32 with what was the Mainline kernel at that time - 5.76.20. And some HTTP webserver (nginx) for some reason... go figure!

And for some reason, the Black Box keeps making requests to https://www.rescuetime.com . IDK why nor how it's related, but it's there.

And it's got quemu installed (there is a virbr0 bridge and vnet0 listed).

    And the doc is writing something that I would call a dead code. Although it's been a while since I've touched C++.. Perhaps there's something I don't know :)

    Well ofc exit() could be loaded from some other library. But that would mean the code smells.

    Either way, I'm not sure I'd like to work on the BlackBox :/ The code is just too fishy

    Calling a time tracking site seems supremely odd.

    Cool box though.

    @SortOfTested Also I was under an impression there's some kind of a requirement to NOT use real IP addresses, phone numbers, etc in the movies. I guess I was wrong then? is NOT not real :)

    Blackbox is using very close to the ASCII "Slant" Font.
