Couldn’t put a finger on why every page on the web looked like shit today, then realized I’d accidentally disabled AdBlock. Oh the humanity!
Hey fellow Vermonters, tune to VPR at noon today to hear @amy_harmon of NYTimes and @savortooth of Grist talk GMOs: http://digital.vpr.net/post...
Don’t open any PDFs, JPEGs, or webpages on Mac/iPhone/iPad until you’ve run Software Update to apply today’s patches. http://seclists.org/bugtraq...
great customer service from @nytimes today. print may be dead to me, but my love for the gray lady is eternal.
well looky here: a shiny new release of ubuntu LTS this week, perfectly aligned with my plan to deploy new servers this week. coincidence???
1Password says I changed 32 of my 433 passwords today. Next person who says OpenID is a solution to a nonexistent problem gets face-punched.
My my, the web is just full of crappy UX for changing one’s password. Individually they seem benign, but this week it just feels metastatic.
Yes, heartbleed may be over-enthusiastically branded, but discussing vulns with laypeople is a lot easier using names instead of CVE idents.
.@1Password feature request: button to automatically change my passwords everywhere. Even if it only handled popular sites I’d be grateful.
It’s time to Fire All The Service Providers and Bring Everything Back In House (yes, I realize the irony of this declaration coming from me)
It makes me sad that I still see sites go down over single points of failure. It’s 2014, people: multi-region cloud setups are cheap & easy.
When the “Senior Sysadmins” for your client’s “Fully Managed Servers” don’t know how to run tcpdump, it’s time to find them a new provider.
The only easy day was yesterday.
So, I was just off by 3 orders of magnitude when dealing w/ tech support regarding bandwidth issue. Oops. I swear I know this stuff, honest!
either i’ve been targeted by the most elaborate phishing scheme ever, or 2 dudes from Dubai keep accidentally CC’ing me on business dealings
so much wrongness on the internets… do not engage… must put down the keyboard, back away slowly… aaahhhHHH, my preciousssss!
Public Service Announcement: if you use Adobe products, don’t just change your password at Adobe.com. Change your password on every website where you might have used the same password. And then start using a password manager that generates random passwords for you, such as iCloud keychain or 1Password. - http://brandtkurowski.tumblr.com/post...

This is a dialog box that no Mac user should ever see. I know what lsboxd is, but most Mac users don’t and they shouldn’t have to. So most people should click “Don’t Allow” here, despite the fact that doing so will break opening calendar invites from sandboxed apps.
