As Peterson and industry colleagues at companies like Cloudflare, Akamai, Flashpoint, Google, and Palo Alto Networks began to study the new malware, they realized they were looking at something entirely different from what they’d battled in the past. Whereas the vDOS botnet they’d been chasing was a variant of an older IoT zombie army—a 2014 botnet known as Qbot—this new botnet appeared to have been written from the ground up.

That’s when the case went to the appellate court, which upheld the lower court’s decision, saying in part that the case didn’t fall under the anti-slapp-suit law and that the defendants “did not demonstrate that the posted message is free speech.” Judges Robert Mallano and Jeffrey Johnson, writing for the majority, said the messages revealed a harmful intent and were not protected speech.

It took me the entire mocha cappuccino to calm down enough to go survey Waldo Pizza, where they served the only gluten-free pizza in Kansas City. From the entrance, the restaurant is divided into three parts – a walled, private dining room to the right, an area with a tall half-wall to the left and an open dining area in the middle.

I peered around the doorway of the private dining room and saw five older ladies at a single table as the only diners. I looked to the left dining area and saw a table of people who were not Evan. It was late for lunch and early for dinner, so I sat at a table in the middle section where I had a view of the front door, then ordered a pizza in the mostly deserted restaurant. Not hungry, I nibbled at a single piece of non-gluten-free pizza as I tested myself with the worn Trivial Pursuit game cards on the table and tried not to look out of place.

“The Earth Simulator is essentially a big computer grid,” Catlett says. “A bunch of computers put in a grid to get the power. It’s a short step from putting supercomputers in a grid across the room to doing it across the country, or across the world.”

Barclay says people are also finding matches in order to swap links from the stainless steel bands. One user went to the site for as much because his large wrist required additional links, and he hoped someone on the site with smaller links might swap or sell him their additional ones.
