Initial release of Herbivore

Initial release of Herbivore software

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.

What Would Jesus Do?

If you're a Christian, or if you�ve tailgated one recently, you understand that when faced with a moral challenge, you need only ask yourself, "What Would Jesus Do?"

Funny...too funny. Slumites, a new topic for discussion...."What would Bob do?"

Carlo Giuliani: From Lyncher to Martyr

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.

Wes on Standards group ignites common-code war - Tech News - CNET.com

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.

When should blogs publish private

When should blogs publish private e-mails?
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.

Dave on Microsoft's recent OEMs

Dave on Microsoft's recent OEMs can put other apps on the Windows XP desktop.

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".

Notes towards a CMS

Great comment to the How

Great comment to the How To Make Money Online or "the secret of making money in the skin trade".

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.
