NSA-proof email encryption? Cobblers, sniff German hackers

Andrew 99

another (mostly) secure email

While a user is below the radar, www.hushmail.com offers that email is encrypted on the server, and sent with pgp. It isnt helpful to anyone who is in trouble with Canadian law, though.

word press admin

so as an admin of a small wordpress site, how would I know if my site has been compromised?

I've bought space from a hosting company, I dont have access to network traffic monitoring tools. Any suggestions?

'Silent but deadly' Java security update breaks legacy apps - dev

Andrew 99

stuck with it - for now

I've tabled a motion to our dev team to consider removing Java as a client side requirement from our businesss app. Their response is that java is the only (free) tool that allows access to the client local path from the browser. So I guess we're stuck with it for the time being.

Joke

logical deduction

Its suggested that to reduce the risk of cancer, one might stop smoking.

Does the logic follow that if one stops wearing underwear, your cancer risk is reduced? Is it reduced more if you're female?

non hiding

@AC Monday 21st February 2011 17:06 GMT- while fetlife.com is good, there is a certain sense of "non-hiding" that goes with having a BDSM group on FB. Not to mention the ease of keeping up-to-date with all one's social group and gossip, even if some beat each other from time to time.

BDSM is just another special interest group, like flyweight boxing or australian abseiling. But it can overtly involve sex, which does seem to scare the pants off the powers-that-be.

World braces for Lindsay Lohan sex tape

Andrew 99

bi-sexual

she's bi-sexual, so says wikipedia. As I understand it, bi-sexuality is a spectrum, rather than an orientation.

Anyway, I've often thought the sex hormones were raging for celebs. why else would they forget knickers and other undergarments on a regular basis. And in my narrow minded view, such talented folks can be a bit - unbalanced. So I'd rather view them with compassion rather than salaciously.

I really wonder why its important enough for everyday folk to think its news?

anyway, as its been already noted, better variations of the said act can be had on late night tv.

I suspect that I'm being naive. It seems that Governments dont fear the ballot box anymore.

@ Christopher P. Martin

I'd expect a tinfoil on cardboard sheild would do the same job. Refraction around the edges would'nt be too much and easier to keep whole in a rioting mob than a tin foil suit.
