    From the guy that risked his manhood for putting RGBs in your microwave oven, here comes again, this time... defeating DRM on a dishwasher?!

    Let me understand this: some French entrepreneur deeply into IoT shit came with the brilliant idea of pulling an NintendoHP, but on appliances: a countertop dishwasher that takes proprietary cartridges with dishwashing fluids. And instead of letting you, the dear consumer, refill your own carts with whatever cheap dishwash soap you can find at your nearby store ("rinse aid"?! I'm a dinosaur, I still use a rag and soap for doing my dishes and pots, like an animal!), he instead believes into DaaS ("dishwashing as a service") and tries to get you enrolled into a dishwasher cartridge subscription. And of course, the machine has WiFi for Internet access, because that's what your cellphone needed: yet another app for tracking your appliances!

    Fret no more, as our intrepid hacker quickly cracked the DRM (a lame XOR'd single-byte counter, no bounds checking, no checksums!), and also the PROPRIETARY DISHWASHING FLUID SEKRET FORMULA (turns out that it's nothing but commercial-grade stuff you can buy for larger machines for dirt cheap), so all you need is a syringe... and a "chip reset" contraption. Because we're totally living in the future, where our appliances believe they're inkjet printers :/

    We're in Weirdest Timeline Ever, so here is one of the few good things coming out of COVID-19: a new Touhou game is getting a same-day launch on both physical AND Steam, for the first time EVER (since there will be no Reitaisai or Comiket for quite some time to come, thanks to China Pest):

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/1566410/__Unconnected_Marketeers/

    ZUN is desperate for beer, it seems.

    Anyway, onto the new girls! Here is the definitive Class of '21:

    - Catgirl! (with money, even!)
    - Yorihime 2 Weed smonking dragon (because Yachie was feeling lonely)
    - CoD/fintech kappa
    - The girl where Cake gets her shiny glass beads
    - Foxgirl! (Touhou was seriously due for a new one, leaving aside the manga one-offs)
    - Blue Aya
    - ZUN doing hard drugs instead of beer (poor Hecatia...)
    - EXTRA STAGE: Minecraft, the 2hu (Oh, and she eats dragons. Poor Yachie...)

    Oh, and the whole card system, because that's the rage on videogames nowadays. Bring on the pr0n!

      This does not actually go there and I regret nothing.
