Herbivore is similar to GnuPG or PGP, except that it is intended to operate totally automatically. So if you and me both have a Herbivore-enabled email client, any email that travels between us will automatically be encrypted; Herbivore will automatically generate public/private keypairs, exchange the public keys, encrypt on transmission and decrypt on receipt.
A Comparison of Popular Online Fonts: Which is Best and When? Me thinks tiggersol will find this one intresting.
The dailies in the central European city where I'm writing this comment are full of bloody photos and articles decrying the "massacre." Meanwhile here on K5, someone said he's turning his homepage black in Giuliani's honor. What folly!
I too was horrified at the imagry from G8 in Genoa. I don't know if the article has any merit, but it does pose a slightly different viewpoint on this situation, and warrants a look-see. Is it possible to mitigate such a gut-wrenching act of violence?
I wasn't going to say anything on the Life and Death Struggle in Genoa, but not only was the ductape wielding protester shoot to death but he was then ran over by the police.
The pornolize'd version of fozbaca.org, found this through the refer logs.
Joel on Software - Good Software Takes Ten Years. Get Used To It. Good food for thought. Start small, release often in the beginning, and listen to the users. Then after 10 years go on to make the next great product.
Securing Connections to Your Web Site, a little intro to Symmetric Encryption , Asymmetric Encryption With PKI, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and HTTPS.
It seems like Web developers would have less trouble supporting standards if they didn't insist that their sites look absolutely identical on every browser. Consider this site; it renders correctly (yet differently) in every browser I've seen with no workarounds, because my definition of correct rendering is reasonable. Maybe we'll have to wait for the print designers to die off.
I can't agree more, though tiggersol will probably disagree. I just find so little of the "it has to be just like this" camp's work all that useful, or even good looking design.
Dubbah might have cause at least one good thing since taking the US Presidancy, The Wired Left Awakens.
I usually ask permission when quoteing email or icq/jabber/irc but as a courtsy not a rule.
The only time i would definately require permission is if the message, email or icq etc, was sent encrypted. The rational, anything sent in clear text is already kinda public. If you don't want something public then encrypt it.
AMD Athlon Multi-Processor Under Linux dual Athlons are definately on my wish list.
A Study In Scarlet: Exploiting Common Vulnerabilities in PHP Applications
I haven't seen anyone fall for Microsoft's concession to the OEMs yesterday. Got a little bit of pushback from Microsoft PR. They said that Passport wasn't in the box. Oh. Really. OK, it's actually there. Take it out? No. OK. I get it. It's only the old bits that are semi-optional, the ones where the competition is dead. Ahhh I see.
Like all "we are really nice guys" from Microsoft, a meaningless gesture. Just like one of the local dealerships they are "Giving It to you straight".
The problem of Persistent Domains
This is a proposal to address the problems with the persistence of HTTP URIs. It introduces the concept of a datestamped domain name with associated rights and obligations of ownership.
CyberPounce.Com so all you people owned by cats can have a little fun with your masters.
A better idea...
Build a content-management system geared towards porography with an e-commerce engine, graphics-rendering system, tracking system, etc. Once the software is in place, charge for the class as this fellow is doing and also have higher-end classes for customization of the backend (Interwoven & Vignette rack in alot of bucks doing this). One could also then hire out consultants for customization which the less tech-savy would need (such as WebCrossings does).
Which would sure make for fun consulting jobs.
It is only fare to mention, Independance day flag jam for some prespective on where we have come in 225 years.
