I bought an OpenWRT-compatible router and put OpenWRT on it. Anybody have preferences/opinions about OpenWRT versus Tomato versus DD-WRT?

I swear I am not making this up. I just got a error message from an internal application that said "package names are case insensitive and must start with a capital letter."

I'm traveling for work next week to a customer office I've never been to. A guy named Stephen sent me this note about my arrival:

“Check in at reception and ask for Hrvoje or myself”.

I’ll probably be asking for Stephen. 😀

You know what I get from European companies that I NEVER get from American companies? Unsolicited email telling me that, since I haven’t done business with them in a while, they’re going to drop me from their mailing lists unless I ask to remain. did a lot of good.

and because not everyone knows all the history, its not like there weren't people trying to help make this work out right over time.

see, from just the last year, this example that was made public

it wasn't all enablement.

So these guys at Greenbone found millions of medical images freely available online. Sounds like they were super careful not to do dubious things (e.g., download images and test uploads). Sounds like DICOM (which I knew as an image format, never as a network protocol) is one of these legacy things that falls over as soon as someone actually looks at it.

I just got spam at GMail that had "Viagra" in the subject line and actually had an attachment that was named like Viagra&Cialis.html. It was in my spam folder, but I'm suprised it arrived at all.

a fun thing to do when someone corrects you is to say "ugh; you're such a pendant"

then watch as they struggle and ultimately fail to resist the urge to say "I think you meant pedant?" then you say "SEE WHAT I MEAN"

Ok folks, help me out. I’m moving to a new house in the US. I will be replacing the ordinary household deadbolts with a lock that hopefully doesn’t show up in the “easy” pile at your local village. What brands/models should I look at for a normal US front door?

This is a beautiful and diabolical collection of dark patterns and broken user interface elements. It’s awe inspiring in its awfulness.

Check my math (I wonder if I'm missing something). $480K after taxes, minus $117K restitution and $55K fine still leaves $308K net proceeds. Divide that by 4 (number of months in prison) and he's getting paid $77K per month of prison. Imagine he paid $100K to his lawyers. He's STILL getting off pretty damn good. I must be doing some of the math wrong.

Colleague just stuck a meeting on my calendar right between 2 other important meetings. Then he messaged me to ask if it was ok. I said "it's fine as long as we are strict on time". His reply: "We are in Switzerland. We will have no trouble being on time." :) I'm sure he's right.

I have a call in 5 minutes, I desperately need the loo, and my laptop seized up and needs rebooting. Ugh

How many votes can I get on this poll if y'all boost it?

This headline is kinda garbage. Let me try rewriting it: "Confirmed: 20 years of consistently cutting NASA funding left an agency that can't do all the thing we want it to do."
