Well, it’s about goddam time that Lizard People cough it up like the rest of us. But just out of curiosity: Where are they supposed to store their Clipper cards? Admittedly, I know little to nothing about LP anatomy.
A message saying, “You hacked, ALL data encrypted” appeared across computer screens across Muni stations yesterday, reports the San Francisco Examiner. Fare systems crashed Saturday, which meant everyone rode for free until the system was restored. SFMTA confirmed with ABC7 that the system was indeed hacked and went back online on Sunday.
The Examiner reports that the message read, “You Hacked, ALL Data Encrypted. Contact For Key(email@example.com)ID:681 ,Enter.”
In case you missed it, your favorite hot sauce is ready for all your travel needs.
Muni rider Derek sends in this important consumer reminder:
Some time ago I was riding home on an outbound 38 Geary. As I took in my surroundings I happened to glance what at first I thought was a little bottle of hand sanitizer. On a closer look I saw that it had the coloring and logo of siracha (sp?) sauce. I just had to ask the guy who’s backpack it was clipped to if it was what I thought it was and he said that yes, it was siracha sauce!
He said that he’d bought it on Amazon for adding some more kick to falafal.
Just hope he doesn’t one day get it mistaken for Purel and rub his hands near his eyes.
Typically, it’s cars that end up on Muni Metro tracks, eliciting a nails-on-a-chalkboard reaction … in me, anyway. What?
This time, as Streetsblog SF reports, a Muni bus made the boo boo. To be fair, it was hella raining Sunday morning. Which means what, I am not sure.
It’s unclear how the bus ended up on the tracks. Paul Rose, a spokesman for SFMTA, only said that, “The operator of the bus drove on the tracks at that location. We had to get a tow truck to remove it. Shuttles provided service through the area to West Portal.”
