Sky High
Really fun 2005 superhero movie. Son of famous heroes goes to superhero highschool and starts with the side kicks but gets catapulted to popularity when he discovers his powers.
This movie was really fun and had a really good cast! My first time watching it and I was quite charmed.
Oh wow, that's the Korean one, right? Haven't thought of that in a while, but I remember it fondly.
"Sky High" starred Kurt Russell, IIRC.

Well, I think I just deleted zoom from my two Mac laptops.  I deleted the Application directory using the rm command.  I then executed the command `sudo locate zoomus`, which found .zoomus directories in the home directories of two users on each laptop, which I then deleted using rm.  Updating the locate database and running `sudo locate zoomus` a second time turned up no more files on either computer, so I think all traces of the app are gone.

That's plan B, but he's a busy guy, didn't want to bother him if anyone else here knew already.

Has anybody read "Disrupt, Discredit, and Divide: How the New FBI Damages Democracy" by Michael German?
I just listened to an interview of the author on the https://podcasts.google.com/?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9yZWFzb24uY29tL3BvZGNhc3QvZmVlZC9yZWFzb24tcG9kY2FzdC8&episode=aHR0cHM6Ly9yZWFzb24uY29tLz9wb3N0X3R5cGU9cG9kY2FzdCZwPTgwMjM1OTE Reason Podcast and he sounded like an excellent skeptic, except that he characterized Edward Snowden as a whistleblower. (Snowden's method for "blowing the whistle" was improper and damaging, verging on treasonous, IMO.)
Is this book a worthy read?

Zoom is now safe.

This was fixed a few months ago.  We use it ALL THE TIME to talk to developers in India.

Can you completely remove it from your mac?


How could you not be able to completely remove it from a Mac?

After attempting to uninstall the Zoom client on macOS, the software will keep on re-installing automatically in the background, using a hidden web server that is set up on the machine during the first installation and that stays activated after attempting to remove the client. As of July 2019 the software offers no method for complete removal on macOS and will re-install itself when following Zoom meeting links, using the hidden web server.[34]

That's interesting, but "offering no method" of removal is not the same as there being no way to remove it.  In fact, an article linked from the wikipedia page explains how to completely remove it.

I should add that a few of you were not the target of my rant which I wrote in 3 different sections at three different times while working and I didn't press send till I got home.
