Probably recent serious (insecurity) hardware bugs discovered in CPUs 
from last decades.

If I install intel-microcode (CPU from a year or two ago) can I still 
use Management Engine Cleaner? ( https://github.com/corna/me_cleaner .)  
Now that the truth about Intel running a secret entire other CPU with 
operating system in your CPU has come out, not sure they're going to 
still let ME Cleaner work, and also, if ME Cleaner is not perfected yet, 
what a potential side effects may be.

Another topic, but as a subscriber, can't I still post (same email 
address) here on Gmane, or I have to email now?
