Looks like the reincarnation of the old ScanEye site.

I've posted 'Riddle', here;
https://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=50099.msg439664#top

So far, no one has cracked it.
Maybe the right person hasn't seen it yet.
So I'll post this link to it here,
with another 'hint';
Original: and 2 + 3 = 5 it's true,
but the way they're meant 2 B.

Hint: and 2 and 3 are 5 it's true,
but not the way they're meant to be.

Given the right visual cues, I suspect a kindergartener -albeit perhaps an especially  bright one- could find the answer.
But nobody has figured it out yet.

That's in the wrong board to post in if you want responses -- it probably had about two views before you posted this link.
@moderators, would you consider moving the thread to the living room board?

Looking at the contents of the 'riddle', I think it was in the right place.

Tired of the real world's shabby tirade of false 'virtue signalling'?

Any time that phrase is used unironically it's a red flag to me.

Sorry, I should have looked closer...

Thank you. You're right, the Basement wasn't giving 'Riddle' enough exposure. Now that I've 'surfaced', I would like very much to try returning there again, at least, for the time being.

Huge BootHole flaw in GRUB2 bootloader leaves millions of Windows and Linux systems at risk from hackers


To my understanding, the people behind the discovery of this flaw found out during testing/auditing the Grub bootloader. And then found out the same flaw exist when using Windows as well. Yet all reporting "blames" the Grub bootloader, while the main issue here is that protecting files during the boot procedure is a good idea, but that it is poorly executed. And that too much trust is placed in Microsoft as a certificate signer. Security conscious people warned against this from the beginning days when every computer manufacturer implemented this security feature in their hardware.
