Who me ? Welcome all readers to another episode of Who, Me? in which we tell stories of technical problems (and occasional triumphs) that our precious readers can’t wait to get off their chests.

This week, meet a reader we’ll rename to “Walt” who ended up working in tech support at a theme park. His role was to solve the myriad IT problems of various staff members, including engineers, cleaning staff and park management, who used a range of iDevices to coordinate their workdays. Life on a roller coaster isn’t just about the ups and downs, you know – there’s technology too.

Well, that day, Walt was alone in the help desk when he learned that the president’s personal fondleslab refused to connect to the network. The aircraft was shot down and Walt found out, lo and behold, that was it.

At that point, Walt had what he generously describes as a caffeine-deprived cerebral fart and decided the solution was to create a rule that meant the President’s iPad would always be allowed to log in, essentially forcing the network to see it. It worked, and Walt then escorted the functional slab to the president.

Upon returning to the office, he was confronted by a crowd of disgruntled engineers and bigger-than-line cleanup staff for the river lap. Their devices could not connect to the network. None of them could.

It turned out – as Walt realized even before inspecting a device – that by creating an allow list just for the boss, he had unwittingly created a deny list for all other devices on the network.

Worse still, it had disconnected hundreds of park visitors from free Wi-Fi.

You know that feeling in the pit of your stomach right after the first big fall on a roller coaster, as it comes back up and you realize it’s going to get worse before it gets better and you start re-evaluating your life choices. ? This is where Walt was at the time.

He immediately reversed the special rule for the chair’s iPad, restoring connectivity with the park and its many employees and guests. But of course, that meant the president’s iPad disconnected again, and that problem would require a less flatulent fix — while requiring Walt to tell the boss what happened.

Have you ever found yourself plummeting from the pinnacle of victory to the abyss of despair because of a single mistake? Brought a company to its knees with an idea that seemed smart at the time? Tell us all about it in an email to Who, Me?

Adding new routes is one thing, but having operational aircraft to serve them is critical. Korean Air is grappling with safety issues related to its aging wide-body aircraft, including Airbus A330s and Boeing 777s, some of which are 18 to 23 years old. The airline recently announced that it is carrying out a full inspection of 24 of its A330s and retiring six older aircraft. Data from ch-aviation.com shows the airline has eight A330-200s and 21 A330-300s in its fleet, as well as an A330-300 that was written off following a runway excursion in the Philippines on October 28.

Currently, fleet data shows the Korean has 131 of its 159 aircraft listed as active. The active passenger fleet includes nine Airbus A220s, one A321neo, 20 A330s and five A380s. The Boeing aircraft are 23 737, six 747-8s, 30 777s and ten 787-9s. The airline also has a large freighter fleet of 24 freighters, a mix of 747s and 777s, and three VIP business jets.

Various reports suggest that the Korean plans to add 90 new planes by 2028, including 30 Boeing 787 Dreamliners. Current events in the fleet suggest that some of these new aircraft could be on the fast track to kick off fleet renewal.

CULLOWHEE, N.C. (AP) — Jalynn Williams rushed for two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score with 2:53 remaining, and West Carolina rallied late to defeat Wofford 36- 29 Saturday.

Ryan Ingram’s 2-yard touchdown 57 seconds into the final quarter gave Wofford a 29-26 lead.

Richard McCollum’s 19-yard field goal capped a nine-play, 60-yard drive and took West Carolina (4-5, 2-4 Southern Conference) to a 29-all tie with 6:55 remaining. The Catamounts defense forced a three-and-out and Landon Parker’s 28-yard punt gave West Carolina a first-and-10 at the Terriers’ 40-yard line, setting up Williams winning score.

Wofford (2-7, 2-4) led 14-12 at halftime after Jimmy Weirick connected with rookie Kyle Pinnix for a 13-yard touchdown with 4 seconds left in the second quarter.

An emergency update was released for all Lightning Network LND node operators on November 1, after a critical bug knocked LND nodes out of the sync chain. This was the second critical bug encountered by the network in less than a month.

According to Lightning Labs, developer of the Bitcoin Lightning Network, some LND nodes have stopped syncing due to an issue with the btcd thread analysis library. The patch (v.015.4) was released almost three hours after the break. The statement stated:

“This is an emergency patch release to fix a bug that may prevent lnd nodes from parsing certain transactions that have a very large number of witness entries.”

According to the issue on GitHub, unupdated nodes will be vulnerable to malicious channel shutdowns once channel hourly locks expire in two weeks. The bug only affected LND nodes, rendering the current state of the chain obsolete, although payment transactions are still available. Some versions of electrs have also been impacted, according to another issue on GitHub.

The bug was triggered by a developer nicknamed Burak on Twitter, with a message in the transaction saying, “you will run cln. and you will be happy”.

Burak was also responsible for triggering a similar bug on October 9, when they created a 998 of 999 multisig transaction that was rejected by the btcd and LND nodes, causing the entire block and all blocks following the transaction. On the same day, Lightning Labs released a patch to resolve the issue.

Related: What is the Lightning Network in Bitcoin and how does it work?

On Twitter, users suggested it was time for an LND bug bounty program:

The hacker Anthony Towns too claims disclosing the vulnerability to LND developers two weeks ago, noting that “the btcd repository doesn’t seem to have a security bug reporting policy, so I don’t know if anyone else working on btcd has it discovered”.

The Lightning Network is a second layer added to the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain that enables off-chain transactions, i.e. transactions between parties not part of the blockchain network.
