Easter eggs, fun little references or surprises hidden just below the surface, are practically a given for modern movies and video games. But they aren't the exclusive domain of entertainment media, and they go back farther than you might think. Programmers were hiding undocumented responses to software input commands as far back as the late 60s. Apparently someone at Microsoft was doing so in the 80s, too: A recently uncovered easter egg in the very first Windows release may have gone undiscovered for 36 years, complete with a surprise appearance by Valve chief Gabe Newell.
According to self-styled Windows archeologist Lucas Brooks, there's a short list of Windows development team members encrypted into a bitmap file in the original Windows 1.0 release. Subsequent updates of the OS would have allowed users to reveal the “Congrats! The Windows Team” credits with some complex keystrokes, but there doesn't appear to be any way to show it in version 1.00, either by design or error. It's possible that no one ever found the message in the original software before Brooks did.
The Easter egg is simply a list of thirty-six names without job descriptions. Tech historians will immediately recognize Steve Ballmer, Microsoft's CEO following Bill Gates' retirement. But there's another name that's perhaps even more famous today, as noted by PCGamer. Gabe Newell is in the list as well. Yes, it's that Gabe Newell. He joined Microsoft after dropping out of Harvard in 1980, going on to work as a producer on the first three versions of Windows.
Newell co-founded Valve in 1996, published Half-Life in 1998, and lead the production of the Steam PC gaming distribution platform in 2003. In a Code.org interview with students in 2017, Newell said that he “learned more in three months with those guys at Microsoft than I did the entire time I was at Harvard.”
The biggest mystery for any investor is to know the best entry points in a current market cycle. For a Bitcoin maximalist, the $34,000 range was the most rewarding point of entry for opening long positions. Notably, in the market-wide capitulation event on 24 February 2022, the weak hands gave in to FUD. Simultaneously, high […]
Roketo, the crypto-streaming solution built on NEAR Protocol, has announced DeBio, an anonymous-first appchain for medical and bioinformatics services and data, will be rolling out the company's payment service to all their accounting and payroll.
DeBio is a public project and transparency of transactions is the main reason why it turned from traditional banking solutions to Roketo. Currently, DeBio is using the streaming solution to pay more than 200 advisors and investors working on its project. Next month they are planning to roll the service out to all of their accounting and payroll.
“Roketo takes transparency to the next level compared to competitors. In services like Blockchain Explorer or NEAR Scan, we can see the list of transactions and content of the wallets but we don't have a view of where the tokens will be allocated. And in Roketo we see exactly how many tokens are allocated for the investors. Currently, we have 200 investors and it's important for us to be able to set hundreds of streams automatically, through a script, for them,” says DeBio CEO Pandu Sastrowardoyo.
“We're happy to have DeBio's trust as they're rolling out Roketo's crypto-streaming service to all their accounting and payroll. They've been with us paying a number of investors and advisors, and clearly, they've valued the transparency and ease of use of using the system that we've developed. Congratulations on further developing our relationship together, we look forward to it being a long and successful one,” says Roketo CEO Taras Dovgal.
DeBio is an anonymous-first appchain for DNA sequencing and medical and bioinformatics data management. DeBio utilizes its native token as payment for genetic and biomedical services provided by its partner labs. The team is also working to supplement its platform with additional payment options to cater to its diverse user base. They launched in Octopus Mainnet in December 2021. The Octopus Network is backed by the NEAR Protocol, which provides multi-chain computing and collaboration. DeBio tokens ($DBIO) have been minted in NEP-141 format in November 2021 and can be bridge to Substrate via Octopus bridge. For more information about DeBio visit debio.network
Roketo is a real-time streaming solution built on NEAR Protocol, which creates the ability to transfer funds in very small batches every second (in reality even less), so it looks like a stream of liquid going through a pipe. It creates new opportunities in the field of finance and provides plenty of ways to improve today's payment systems. It has achieved more than +6k streams and users and has more than $1M streamed value. For more information about Roketo visit roke.to

How cool would it be to have to actually physically go into your computer and destroy the viruses that infect it? I would be downloading trojan horses left, right and centre if I got to do that. Thankfully though now I don’t need to risk the integrity of my computer. That’s because Devastator is out today on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo and PC and offers that same experience in a much less hazardous way.

AXEL, the leading technology company optimizing data privacy and security through its enterprise software solutions, announces that its AXEL Go app, the secure cloud-based file sharing solution for legal professionals, is now available through Clio, the world's leading provider of legal technology. Starting today, Clio's 150,000 users can collect and share files of any size, all within the Clio platform using AXEL Go, the secure file sharing and transfer software.
AXEL Go's unique security features can provide stringent defense against cyberthreats, while also helping to maintain proper workflow management. With its newly launched metadata preservation feature, AXEL Go is a defensible, cost effective and easy-to-use option for legal professionals to collect evidence, while preserving crucial metadata and for smaller document collections, AXEL Go eliminates the need for costly forensic examiners.
“We're excited that Clio's legal professionals can now experience AXEL Go and benefit from this intuitive and secure software that addresses their most important cybersecurity issues,” says Ben Ow, President and CTO of AXEL. “According to the ABA TechReport 2021, 25% of respondents reported that their firms had experienced a data breach at some point. AXEL Go is an easily implemented solution to help legal professionals organize their digital workspace, as well as keep their clients and practices safe from security risks.”
Clio, the most connected legal technology, is transforming the legal experience for all through cloud-based and client-centered solutions that integrate with 200+ apps. Firms of all sizes and practice areas use Clio to manage firm operations, improve client experiences, streamline billing and payments, and automate legal documents—saving lawyers valuable time and resources.
“AXEL Go deeply aligns with Clio's values of delivering cloud-based and client-centered technology for legal professionals— securely and from anywhere,” says Jack Newton, CEO and Founder of Clio. “This integration furthers our dedication to helping app developers build new experiences, launch their app with impact and reach more customers. We're thrilled to work with the whole AXEL team to bring this exciting integration into the Clio app ecosystem.”
While designed to be user-friendly and easily implemented for individuals and businesses of all sizes to protect data privacy and security, AXEL Go offers significant value to the legal industry in particular, where unique ethical, legal and confidential considerations are a major part of their day-to-day business. Built with blockchain technology and military-grade encryption, the mobile, desktop and web applications include a digital safe for highly sensitive documents with no size limits when sending or sharing files.
When files are shared with AXEL Go's secure sharing, they are split into small “shards” and distributed to various servers closest to the recipient. This process, which uses the same encryption technology that government agencies and the military use to secure their most confidential files, has no file size limits, doesn't require the other party to have an AXEL Go account to receive files and greatly reduces the risk of a data breach when the files are in transit. Users can also access reporting to show when their shared files were viewed and downloaded. And with the “Secure Fetch” feature they can also proactively request files from others through a secure channel with just a simple link, and in turn, recipients of a Secure Fetch link don't need an AXEL Go account to send any number of files or volume of data back.
Clio is transforming the legal experience for all by creating the worldʼs leading cloud-based technologies for law firms—to keep lawyers and their clients better connected throughout the legal process. Firms of all sizes and practice areas use Clio products—Clio Manage, Clio Grow, and Lawyaw—to manage firm operations, streamline billing and payments, automate legal documents, and improve the client experience.
