So true. Mrs. Geek knows ladies who fled their country to get away from domestic violence situations where local laws gave them even fewer protections than we have here in the US.

Here are some of the shots I got of tonight's Lunar Eclipse before the marine layer of low clouds moved in. What an amazing thing to watch!

Heartbleed from The Codeless Code

A novice asked of master Bawan: “Say something about the Heartbleed Bug.”

Said Bawan: “Chiuyin, the Governor’s treasurer, is blind as an earthworm. A thief may give him a coin of tin, claim that it is silver and receive change. When the treasury is empty, which man is the villain? Speak right and I will spare you all blows for one week. Speak wrong and my staff will fly!”

The novice thought: if I say the thief, Bawan will surely strike me, for it is the treasurer who doles out the coins. But if I say the treasurer he will also strike me, for it is the thief who takes advantage of the situation.

When the pause grew too long, Bawan raised his staff high. Suddenly enlightened, the novice cried out: “The Governor! For who else made this blind man his treasurer?”

Bawan lowered his staff. “And who is the Governor?”

Said the novice: “All who might have cried out ‘this man is blind!’ but failed to notice, or even to examine him.”

Bawan nodded. “This is the first lesson. Too easily we praise Open Source, saying smugly to each other, ‘under ten thousand eyeballs, every bug is laid bare’. Yet when the ten thousand avert their gaze, they are no more useful than the blind man. And now that I have spared you all blows for one week, stand at ease and tell me: what is the second lesson?”

Said the novice: “Surely, I have no idea.”

Bawan promptly struck the novice’s skull with his staff. The boy fell to the floor, unconscious.

As he stepped over the prone body, Bawan remarked: “Code as if everyone is the thief.”

Great tech.

Probably not much lighting the road, but headlights do that. There's a lot of road which isn't busy, and can't justify the cost of streetlights, for which this would be a great thing.

Senator Scott Ludlam in action, grilling Ian Robertson from the Abbott governments Dept. of Communications, on details of our new, inferior NBN.

Scott Ludlam would make a great PM.

Oh man. Comforting to see the NBN is in good hands
