excelente SPA! greeting - terapyspum
that reminds me of my spa story, it's sorta Seinfeld-esque..."it"...moved...and yeah... - sofarsoShawn
Hahahahaha - Charlie Anzman
Ha,ha, it is the idea of development of the guys in article, when they become residents of urbanized clusters of places in a high developed state. Hi, sofarsoShawn, I like ScFi, very much :-)Have a good Sunday! - Slavomira

I don't know why this is kinky. I'd like to get some :) - See-ming Lee 李思明 SML
not this necessarily, but I was referring to my own spa "experience" above, annnnnd I wasn't even in Thailand etc! And that's not even the weirdest part, but I'm too proper to say - sofarsoShawn from iPhone

:( They are making cost savings everywhere. now if they could take the money saved and get the rest of the 2012 F1 season, that would be great. - Roberto Bonini
Hehe, Roberto, I wish it worked like that. Unfortunately the Trust/government have said they need to cut costs, so not really their fault. It's a real shame but some of the cost-cutting makes sense. Like sharing new bulletins across radio stations. The BBC have far too many news people, so much duplication. This, at least, is one good thing. - Kol Tregaskes

I made a small journey through FF-sphere. Just to see what other people did theme-wise. Whether they had wanted to be original or liked it more the way it was. So I jumped from 1 account to another by going to the 1st person that had liked or commented on an entry. Does it say anything? Do you have a theme that's especially YOU?

I like Canada's best out of these - RAPatton
Go see the FFundercats-theme! Great that one is. - Ton Zijp
This gives me some ideas...... - Roberto Bonini
No, I probably made a mistake here. FFundercats is not an open account. It should be another one with green toy thingies. - Ton Zijp
That one for the field bg is quite nice. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
my beach background was a pic I took in 2004, using an old 2.1 Olympus digital camera (1999) Topsail Island, North Carolina. Wish I was there now.... - Mike Nencetti
Zee is having a nice one too at this moment: - Ton Zijp
I have a theme I also use on Twitter, My Name is E, my personal url and is in another form on my blog. You could call it branding :) - Ruud van Wijngaarden
They are all nice :) - Jemm
A bigger monitor: I needs it. :p - Franc, a rememberer
I like Angelica's, Canada's, Holden's, and Mike Nencetti's themes out of that group, with perhaps Mike Nencetti's at the top of the list. None of the themes I've seen so far really stand out to me, though. - John (bird whisperer)
And John, you maybe like a little tiny bit of my theme on the Wonderful Weird Weblogs group . Pleassseeeee... :-) - Ton Zijp
He doesn't say it himself, but Francs theme is lovely too - Ton Zijp
I hate custom themes. Seriously i do. It's *never* better than the original design. - Nik
Luckily Nik, FF allows you to turn them off so you never have to see any custom themes. - FFing Enigma
I love them, Nik, because that's the way you can add a personal touch to the design that's all ready-made. They don't have to be beautiful to me, as long as they say something about the person who is using it. - Ton Zijp
Mike, I'm in wilmington, topsail is cool and all, but the beaches are almost floridian when you get down to the lower half of cape fear... (figure 8, a gated community barrier island then wrightsville, then masonboro a National Estuarine Research Reserve, and then carolina beach/pleasure island and then bald head island with the frying pan shoals just off it's tip...) Next time you're in the area throw up the bat signal! - Chris Heath
I just have a basic custom that reflects my "personality" - ‘-.-’ Tutivillus Grift
here's a photo of figure 8, wrightsville, and the tip of masonboro - Chris Heath
Luckily, with Google Chrome most custom themes are just black on white ;) - Nik from BuddyFeed
really? i'm using chrome and i'm seeing all the custom themes... - Chris Heath
i have a custom theme job- just a wallpaper that i like looking at. - Nathan Eckenrode
Chris, i use dev release. You? - Nik from BuddyFeed

ah, well i'm just using plain ol' chrome - Chris Heath
@chris i need something called 'time' never seem to have any... I've been to wrightsville beach - but there are many more beaches I would like to visit. one of these days. - Mike Nencetti
Ton Zijp - The theme definitely fits the group's content. :-D - John (bird whisperer)
John, you're making me the happiest person in the world. A weird world, that is, but still a world. :-) - Ton Zijp
Nice, FloH! - Ton Zijp

IPad and MIFI, fresh out of the box. Just like fresh bread out of the oven.
Not sure if I will have time to use it today. There is always the evening. - Mike Nencetti
not pictured is a Verizon iPad sleeve with a pocket for the MIFI 2200 - Mike Nencetti
This is how green I am to Apple. I did not know there was 64bit Itunes. downloading it now. Also did not know you *have* to connect an iPad to a computer with Itunes to use it. 80 meg download. wow. - Mike Nencetti
First connect to Itunes, and I am asked to upgrade the iPad from 3.2.2 to version 4.2. I say yes. The download appears to take 1 hour. another wow. - Mike Nencetti
success. now to activate the MIFI. (edit MIFI up and running, I like how they put the install in the device) ready to start testing. - Mike Nencetti
I don't think my wife has connected her iPad to her computer since she first set it up weeks ago. - Bruce Lewis
the MIFI is easy to setup. To change the default settings you need to go to and log in with a default password of admin, however the directions make you go to a Novatel wireless page, and look for the PDF, scroll to page 26 to find this simple fact out. - Mike Nencetti
Testing on a bumpy commute home. Connects fast. Not sure where to put the mifi device...tonights testing will be printing to wifi and pc connected printers. - Mike Nencetti
Apparently my HP Photosmart Plus 209b is not compatible... 210b is. May buy a 4$ printing app, as the list of air printers is rather small. - Mike Nencetti
Yeah, we're using a linux box as a print server. With it works well. - Bruce Lewis
installed airprint on my windows 7 PC. Took a while to find links were not working.... I found it on 4shared. I had to manually add airprint.exe to the firewall, was not prompted. when I connected to each printer on the ipad, I had to sign in with my local userid and pw for the home computer. it works! - Mike Nencetti
As a test, I printed the instructions off of the web page. Then I realized it is 85 pages, 500 meg. the local computer can cancel the printout, fortunately. - Mike Nencetti
Thanks for that link mike. Will get AirPrint running ASAP. - Roberto Bonini
Printing to a laptop on a Domain, running Win 7 64. I was able to print, by authenticating to the laptops local admin account, with the laptop's wifi off of the corporate network. it was not letting me authenticate to my domain account. I prefer it connecting to the local account. - Mike Nencetti
I don't get the archiving Gmail to the All Mail folder, instead of deleting. That threw me off. fortunately you can set it to delete. The default is archive. - Mike Nencetti
Signed up for my first NetFlix account. I played a documentary about parking lots. the movie froze up 15 min in, then was grainy. I accidentally exited the app, apparently this ends the movie, and signs me out of Netflix. Netflix has no record of me watching the movie. I will experiment with this more, but it is not easy with very few good movies to watch. - Mike Nencetti
We had a similar experience with our first attempt at Netflix streaming a couple months ago. It's been a lot better since then. Just bad luck I guess. We really like it now. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Purchased first iPad app WinAdmin, to use with VPN. This is a Windows remote desktop protocol (RDP) client. definitely worth 9$. (works fine over the MIFI) This is something that the Android platform cannot do. Cisco IPSEC Group Authentication. Maybe someday they will add it.... it's not on 2.2 - Mike Nencetti
Tested Print Bureau. This prints directly to my wifi HP Photosmart Plus 209b. There are more features like file sharing that I have not tested, as I use Dropbox. Recommend this for people with WIFI printers that are not Airprint compatible. - Mike Nencetti
Watched Star Trek on Netflix. no pauses, no grainy video. Maybe Netflix isn't that bad. - Mike Nencetti
Testing Winadmin and VPN at home. Rotating the IPad 90 degrees disconnected me from my remote session, but not vpn. I just had to re log on to the remote computer. need to disable rotation or look into the Winadmin options. - Mike Nencetti from Android
Done most of my iPad testing. Weprint and the service airprint both seem to cause freezeups on the computers I loaded them on. Windows Defender thinks Weprint could be malware, most likely due to its file share feature. Another interesting point I need to document. I bought 2 apps using my cc, and the transactions have not shown up..... - Mike Nencetti from Android
Mike, try OurDoings on the iPad now. It's better on every platform (other than FF3 or IE7), but especially improved on the iPad. You can swipe to switch pictures. The photos fill the screen. Controls disappear after a few seconds, and reappear on a tap. - Bruce Lewis
Great thanks! Will do - Mike Nencetti

African Americans Air-Brushed Out of Movie Poster | The Crusty Curmudgeon -
African Americans Air-Brushed Out of Movie Poster | The Crusty Curmudgeon
"Here in the watch-dog offices of The Curmudgeon, we love to expose misleading and downright criminal advertising. For example, when a soup ad shows a vegetable soup in a bowl that appears to be packed to nearly overflowing, which then turns out to be because they put marbles in the bowl first so the vegetables would be pushed to the top. Makes a pretty, appetizing picture, but unfortunately, a crock. And it’s not a crock of soup. But the “it” it is a crock of also begins with the letter “S.” So my curiosity was peaked when I learned that Universal Pictures had airbrushed out the two black actors who appeared in the movie out of the posters which were used in Europe, whereas the American posters clearly have the black actors in them (albeit way in the back). At first, I was surprised at Europe and wondered why they would find this necessary. But it was Universal Studios who made the decision." - Me from Bookmarklet
Someone doesn't know what airbrushing is. It's completely different shots, with a different composition. Yes the black actors don't appear on the alternative poster, but that doesn't instantly mean they were airbrushed out; it's more like they weren't added in the first place. Alternative posters are pretty common. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Exactly Jimminey :) - Roberto Bonini
Jimminy - both of those shots are composited out of many different shots (the couples were shot together, but the group of all of them were not). The decision to leave them out was likely very deliberate, though not necessarily racist, if one wants to be charitable. - Jennifer Dittrich
Uh. - Derrick
This was written by a self-proclaimed professional writer who thinks curiosity is "peaked"; that irritates me. - Mark H
Jennifer, that's exactly what I just said, that still doesn't warrant the use of the term airbrushing. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Jimminy, you might be focusing on the wrong thing here... - Andrew C (✔)
Sorry, I was quibbling with the use of the word 'shot' in what you said, if we want to be that specific. Neither photo is really a 'shot,' with all of the actors in place, or not, but many different shots composite in one picture. Airbrushing as a term is often used carelessly, as physical airbrushes are rarely used now. That notwithstanding, they still decided to deliberately leave out the black couple. - Jennifer Dittrich
Dan: Bibrarian
Huh, looks like FF is no longer pulling my Twitter feed... again.
May I suggest Advanced Tweets? ( If you use it, you'll need to stop publishing FF to Twitter and turn off your Twitter imports. Other than that, it works great. :) - That's So CAJ!
Actually I rarely tweet from FF to Twitter, it's usually the other way around. :) I'll give it a shot when I get home! - Dan: Bibrarian
I'm pretty sure pushing things to Twitter actually still works, even if you use Advanced Tweets. The one thing I find annoying about Advanced Tweets is that you no longer have a link back to the original tweet (it would be nice if the "Advanced Tweets" attribution link either lead directly to the original tweet, or at least a page on AT with the link to the original tweet). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Oh, that's right. I did forget about that limitation as well. As always, everybody uses "social" differently. Twitter for me is just a transport service. - That's So CAJ!
Curt, or it could put it in the first comment. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
That lack of a link back is exactly why I rarely interact with Advanced Tweets posts. Seems pointless. - Anika from FFHound!
o_O - Derrick
Advanced Tweets had some issues for me when I used it. It seems it would take my tweet, post it into FF...and then post back to Twitter. Despite the fact that Advanced Tweets said it wouldn't do that. So yeah. - Mike Nayyar

Rudi Dekkers drops some bombshell 9/11 revelations on the tenth anniversary of the attacks « Exposing Faux Capitalism -
"Rudi Dekkers, the owner of Huffman Aviation, the flight school where alleged 9/11 hijackers Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi trained at, dropped some bombshell revelations on the September 11, 2011 episode of Erskine Overnight, in speaking about his new book, Guilty by Association. He said he never saw Atta and al-Shehhi ever pray when they were at his flight school, and that the voice purported to be Atta’s from the alleged cockpit voice recorder didn’t sound at all like Atta’s to him. He also said that Atta was a mediocre student and was warned six weeks into his training that he would be kicked out unless he shaped up. Ultimately, upon graduation, Atta and al-Shehhi were only qualified to fly a small plane with a few seats, and not a Boeing 767 jumbo jet, as he and al-Shehhi are alleged to have flown so skillfully into the World Trade towers." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
The mainstream media will not utter a word of this, even though Rudi Dekkers is one of the most important and credible sources of information on Mohamed Atta. - Sean McBride
IIRC, it was pointed out pretty much since 2001 that the hardest parts of flying are the landing and takeoff, neither of which was a factor for the 9/11 hijackers. - Andrew C (✔)
I am inclined to put more stock in the judgment and instincts of someone who is an experienced pilot, who taught Atta how to fly, and who had direct personal interactions with Atta than in the judgment and instincts of someone who isn't an experienced pilot and who had no contact with Atta. Rudi Dekkers doesn't believe the 9/11 official story. He is just one more skeptical voice on 9/11... more... - Sean McBride
What Andrew said anyone that can drive a car can fly a plane once it's actually airborne. Skillfully would have been landing in the Hudson, safely shortly after takeoff with no engines. - Key West
Hitting a particular building is more difficult than simply keeping an airplane in the air. If this were the only problematic issue with 9/11, it would be inconsequential. What is consequential is how hundreds of problematic issues with 9/11 hang together to undermine the credibility of the official story. Even Bob Graham is now calling for a new investigation into 9/11. - Sean McBride
Of all the odd loose ends about 9/11, this may be the most important one: a few sentences that appeared in the New York Times on September 13, 2001: BEGIN QUOTE Separately, officials said a group of about five men were now under investigation in Union City, suspected of assisting the hijackers. In addition, the officials said the men had apparently set up cameras near the Hudson River... more... - Sean McBride
Anyone with a couple of hours in Microsoft Flight Simulator would know what to do once a plane is airborne. - Roberto Bonini from iPhone
Regarding Dekkers' observation that he never noticed Atta praying: 1. Atta was also into alcohol, cocaine, gambling, jewelry, pork chops, the Beastie Boys, strip clubs and strippers. 2. Atta was seen visiting Jack Abramoff's SunCruz Casino six days before 9/11. 3. The Pakistani ISI (a close CIA ally) wired Atta $100,000 a week before the attacks. And on and on it goes. Not to mention Able Danger. - Sean McBride
Roberto -- is it in fact easy to hit a real building with a real large jet after a couple of hours playing with Microsoft Fight Simulator? Quite a few pilots disagree with that assertion. And Atta's piloting skills were weak even for the small plane for which he qualified. - Sean McBride
Interesting discussion on these issues here: Google [ flight simulator] Example: "If jets have to land precisely on a runway, why would it be hard to steer one into a skyscraper?" - Sean McBride
"Mossad Truck Bombs on Sept 11" - Sean McBride
It's easy to fool most of the people most of the time: [1] Saddam possessed WMDs [2] Saddam was behind 9/11 [3] Saddam and Osama bin Laden were allies [4] the Iraq War would be a cakewalk [5] Saddam was behind the 9/11 anthrax attacks [6] Osama bin Laden was behind the 9/11 anthrax attacks [7] Muslims were behind the 9/11 anthrax attacks [8] Steven Hatfill was behind the 9/11 anthrax... more... - Sean McBride
An experienced pilot on the difficulties of hitting a skyscraper while traveling in a large jet at a high rate of speed: BEGIN QUOTE To answer your question in the simplest of terms, imagine trying to park your car in your garage at about 150 mph without hitting the sides of the car on the opening of the garage. Better example... Ever been to a Jiffy Lube or similar place to get your... more... - Sean McBride
Another comment: BEGIN QUOTE Would it be correct to expand the example to include the following? - You're a novice driver essentially still on a learner's permit with limited skills and driving experience to the point of recently having failed your license test because you couldn't properly identify the gauges and controls or safely operate the vehicle - You've only ever driven small,... more... - Sean McBride
Come on, there has to be *some* persuasive pushback arguing that it is reasonable to believe that the hijackers (especially Hani Hanjour) could hit their narrow targets at an exceptionally high rate of speed. :) Regarding Hanjour, Google [9/11 hani hanjour spiral] That Google search statement cuts nicely into the heart of the problem -- a single five-letter word is key: "spiral." - Sean McBride
The Australian Federation of Air Pilots (AFAP) was rightfully suspicious of early simulators and contracts annotated that no pilot could be dismissed solely on flight simulator results. Because it was easier to fly the real aircraft than the simulator, there was an industrial agreement that anyone failing a simulator check should be afforded the opportunity to prove his skills in the air. - Key West
Some interesting discussion on 9/11 here at Democratic Underground: "Ex-FBI Interrogator 'Gagged' Over 9/11 Backstory - Democratic Underground" But I doubt that the proceedings will reach nearly 3,500 comments, as on NPR's On Point. :)... more... - Sean McBride
Belief in the 9/11 official story, like belief in Saddam's WMDs and the wisdom of the Iraq War, is gradually morphing into the fringe position. Too many reputable people with impeccable credentials have switched over to the side of the skeptics during the last few years. - Sean McBride
Comment counts are the new veracity meter ? - Key West
The comment count reveals that there is extremely intense interest about the veracity of the 9/11 official story among thinking Americans -- the number of comments on this show broke all records for On Point, which is renowned for its sobriety and level-headedness, by a long shot. But what really matters is the quality of information and arguments in that discussion on either side. Judge for yourself. Exercise your independent intelligence. - Sean McBride
Andrew -- by the way: I feel increasingly confident about challenging the 9/11 official story (not that I wasn't abundantly confident years ago :)), because so many reputable people, who do not lightly put their credibility on the line, have joined the ranks of 9/11 skeptics: 1. Alan Sabrosky 2. Anthony Summer 3. Bob Graham 4. Coleen Rowley 5. Curt Weldon 6. Daniel Ellsberg 7. John... more... - Sean McBride
Who told you the end was bitter ? There is intense interest in sweet endings based on my observations. I am confident that romance novels will continue to outsell books about the events of 9/11. - Key West
9/11 is one of the most important events in American history. The policies for which 9/11 served as the pretext have done enormous damage to America, possibly fatal damage, to its economy, traditional rule of law, and standing in the world. All the unresolved controversies concerning 9/11 continue to simmer and percolate just under the surface of American society, and could explode into... more... - Sean McBride
Key West: what do you make of Urban Moving Systems? - Sean McBride
Key West: you should get Cristo to add his two cents. :) He has been somewhat curious about this topic in the past. (I unblocked him some time ago.) - Sean McBride
I used White Glove Moving personally and the kids that they sent over to actually do the work where in fact Jewish. * scratch's head* They took my stuff to a warehouse in N.J. to store it. Then shipped it back to Florida when I moved into my new place. Cristo does not follow this account. I see him on Google+ mostly. - Key West
I will ape him for you, please read the above post TIA. - Key West
So you think it is *not* a matter of huge importance that a foreign intelligence agency that is infamous for running false flag ops may have been set up to film 9/11 *before* the first strike? Do you have any idea of how big a story that is potentially? I know you are a serious person. Be serious. - Sean McBride
Seriously though Rudi Dekkers bombshell is a dud. I learned to fly a small plane before I could legally drive a car. My daughter recently learned Aerobatics in a Bi-Plane after 15 minutes of instruction. She flew it, the actual pilot just told her what to do through a headset. She had to where a parachute. She loved it and I am pretty sure she could hit any building on the Island quite simply. - Key West
Side note: I haven't revisited Google+ for quite a few weeks. Can you sell me on its virtues? - Sean McBride
Experienced pilots who know the performance features of these particular aircraft well beg to differ with you. But in the big picture in trying to understand 9/11, this is a relatively small matter. The much more important issue is the identity and objectives of the lead financiers and controllers behind the hijackers. - Sean McBride
I rarely use any of it anymore. I enjoyed some of the debates including some of the mud slinging. I still read things that interest me here, there and everywhere. I think it's interesting, I believe in the JFK conspiracy. I just happen to be a 9/11 skeptic agnostic. :D - Key West
You strike me as being a skeptic on the world in general, with a mischievous streak, which is why I enjoy fencing with you. - Sean McBride
The simulation argument definitely intrigues me :D Have a great day !!! - Key West
Regarding Google+: it struck me as being a weak version of Friendfeed -- clumsy, cluttered, cramped, claustrophic, not agile, not nimble, not swift. If it gets better, I hope someone on Friendfeed will let me know. But if Google in general continues to move in the direction of becoming Ultimate Big Brother, I may drop all my Google accounts. Lately Gmail has been nagging me relentlessly for my phone number -- they've got to be kidding. Ask once politely, take no for an answer, then buzz off. :) - Sean McBride
If you have the ability and means to fly over Miami, Key Biscayne, the Everglades and Key West on your own, I really envy you. - Sean McBride
Spot on Cristo parody, btw. He should hire you to man his social media chit chat when he's busy with other matters. - Sean McBride
"All the unresolved controversies concerning 9/11" -- have you looked into any other major historic moment that you consider reasonably settled? I mean, do you think there are fewer 'unresolved controversies' with those, or have you just not looked in those cases? (followup: is there a single 9/11 "controversy" you've looked into and dismissed, or has _every single one_ triggered your false-flag-ometer?) - Andrew C (✔)
A car garage would indeed be hard to hit at 150 mph but - and I can't believe I have to point this out - the Twin Towers were rather larger than car garages though. - Andrew C (✔)
Well, Western intellectual history and American studies is my primary field, so, yes, I've looked into quite a few historical controversies in depth. But none of them are as important for contemporary Americans as 9/11 and the incredibly self-destructive policies it spawned -- a regime in which we are still embedded. So it's on the front burner. - Sean McBride
I look at historical controversies holistically, trying to connect all the dots and to uncover the most important patterns in the data. The main problem with 9/11 is the overall pattern of facts and evidence. Yes, I've dismissed quite a few theories about 9/11 that strike me as not believable, and probably insane -- like the no-planes hallucination.

"Serious researchers have focused strongly on WTC7." - or alternatively, even quacks can't come up with plausible alternative theories for the twin towers' collapse. - Andrew C (✔)
If WTC7 was a controlled demolition, and the best science is on the side of that assumption, that is the only fact you need to bring down the entire official narrative on 9/11. - Sean McBride
Conversely, if WTC7 wasn't a controlled demolition... would there still be enough other controversies for you? I'm curious as to what it would take for you to disbelieve the Truther story. - Andrew C (✔)
There is little doubt among those who have studied WTC7 and understand the science that it was a controlled demolition. Check out the debate on that subject in that 3,500-comment discussion on On Point Defenders of the official story are barely going through the motions now in trying to support their position on WTC7. - Sean McBride
There is no "Truther story" to disbelieve -- just a great deal of solid research to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that many important particulars of the 9/11 official are false. We no more know the true story behind 9/11 now than we knew the true stories behind Watergate or Iran-Contra before they were properly investigated. - Sean McBride
Just a few of the major controversies: 1. WTC7 (controlled demolition), Larry Silverstein "pull it" 2. Urban Moving Systems (Israeli foreknowledge?) 3. anthrax attacks (inside job, false flag op, neocon agenda) 4. CIA/bin Laden relations (Sibel Edmonds) 5. CIA/hijacker relations (Richard Clarke) 6. leading 9/11 financiers (who were they?) 7. NORAD (stand-down?) 8. decision processes... more... - Sean McBride

It's surprising there's not a feature in Gcal (or any that I've seen) to say something is tentative.
most important things missing is a meeting follow up. Nothing gets done in 1 meeting. follow ups are needed. - ThinkEzy

He's blocked Leo too? You are in good company Bonini :) - sofarsoShawn
Ha! LOL :) - Roberto Bonini from iPhone
I don't know if he still has. But last year Leo called him arrogant on the Gilmore Gang and Arrington went into a bit of a hissy fit. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Ooooo i remember that Jimminy. That was one heck of a tussle. Leo threw GG off his network. I should get a "Mike Arrington Blocked Me" T-Shirt. And send Leo one :) - Roberto Bonini

"According to sources at the company, Yahoo’s Carol Bartz is no longer CEO of Yahoo. CFO Tim Morse has been named interim CEO. The situation around the departure is unclear, but more to come. Bartz has had a rocky tenure in her 30 months at the company." - Me from Bookmarklet
Shouldn't this have happened about 18 months ago? - OCoG of FF, Jimminy

(Some dumb Turkish "hacktivists" manipulated a DNS provider's records to point to a server hosting a crappy Word-generated page from 2005).
I thier point is that Word makes for a crappy HTML editor, point well taken. - Roberto Bonini
Nothing against Word if you need instant results for something incredibly basic, I guess. Still, attacking a DNS provider, and gradually poisoning cached data is a pretty stupid idea, in the grand scheme of things. - Tyson Key
I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't just use an existing exploit script, and hoped that the organisation in question had poorly configured their infrastructure, either. - Tyson Key

A friend is looking at the D7000. Apparently Nx Capture and NX Capture 2 can't read the RAW files. Any truth to this? CC @frederickvan
I have a D7000. Raw files readable in v2.2.6 - Johnny from iPhone
Right. Thanks Johnny. - Roberto Bonini
Ignore me... stupid question Johnny.... - Roberto Bonini
It wasn't. They weren't supported in 2.2.5 and below and since most people just install the disk and don't download the updates, this effected a great deal of people. - Johnny
Thanks Johnny :) - Roberto Bonini
