Why wasn't I there for the best selfies? Disappointed! Wow, internet hall of fame. Pretty cool to have friends on that list. ;-)

I found this hugely amusing (and informative!) when I first saw it. Very happy to see that it's now public!

+Karl Auerbach I infer the same things from the report, and also, you ask piercingly for more clarity. Google has attempted to quell our curiosity with this show. Being able to know where everyone is, in place and space, is too tempting a knowledge for rulers to have. So easy to abuse, and money is what buys info., unless the info is seized. The joy of having relationships via the net, is being corroded by an obsessed few. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh thanks!

If you use Family Tree DNA, don't use a password that you use anywhere else.
Not only is it a bad (albeit near-universal) habit, they will occasionally email you the password.
In clear text.

Fun. For randon site logins I never use any of my secure passwords, under the assumption they will get hacked (or are idiots)

+Harald Tveit Alvestrand You need to pay a visit to our lab next time you drop by KTH. There is not one interface in it that isn't a little miracle of counterintuitive, confusing design in itself. I am not exaggerating.

You've posted a picture of a place that I don't want to be in during an earthquake.  8-)

Spectacular display, however.

I have seen a suggestion about using 4 channels with planned interference as that will improve planning.. On the other hand.. This might also be an effect of using auto selection of channels in the controller..
