I'm not sure how many of the puzzles I solved the way they were intended, but this is a fun little game.

+Erik Pasternak Yeah, same here. Or, rather, I was trying to figure out how it worked and then I passed it by accident.

Dear Aetna,

If you truly believe that a secure way to send email is to have your customers type their passwords into a random HTML form you send attached to an email, you really should consider hiring someone who knows anything about computer security.

No way would I trust that particular scheme to be legit. That is such an easy thing to fake. The metasploit kit ships with the tools to do that. Insurance companies have terrible IT practices, I would assume a data compromise and spear phishing.

This guy takes some pretty nice pictures.

I'm slightly tempted to go back to using background pictures rather than a solid color, but with a tiling window manager I hardly ever see the background anyway.

I just noticed Go 1.2 started enforcing memory safety while calling it a backwards compatible change, since it only breaks already incorrect code.

Can we start enforcing memory safety in C too? It would only break already incorrect code.

+Ivan Jager the first one I poorly worded. I referred to the trick of e.g. arranging things such that the logical start of an array is before the region you actually allocated. It is true that as I wrote that it didn't make sense.

The rest of them I found in the spec I linked; yes, most of them are implementation-defined.

I mean, I think you and I agree about the world we would rather live in, where C compilers check memory constraints usefully.

Does this double-billing thing happen anywhere other than in US telcos? (and now ISPs?)
 
I was not expecting the Washington Post to have such a lucid, well thought out, and clear description of how internet peering works. This is the article to read about Netflix's peering woes.

Argh, add +Pinterest to the list of negligent/idiot spammers. They don't verify the email address when signing up, so you can just create an account with someone else's email address and they'll happily spam away.

It's not like they didn't think about it either. At the bottom of the emails, they have a link for "Didn't sign up for Pinterest? Please let us know!", but clicking it ends up requiring 7 pieces of information, including your name and pinterest username. How am I supposed to know what pinterest username the other person picked?

I'd like to see some of those numbers replaced by constants  - "1 + 2 + 16" is pretty opaque (though it is documented by comments elsewhere)

I just watched Gravity for the first time. Unfortunately, it was the 2D version, so everything was constrained to the same orbital plane. The special effects were pretty good though. :/

Funny business meeting illustrating how hard it is for an engineer to fit into the corporate world!

I don't agree with everything he says of course, but I am often saddened by the state of systems we build on.

This also reminds me of a talk I went to (in the late 00's) where the speaker talked for an hour about how this new thing called virtualization was the way of the future and how he expected we would eventually run all our programs in VMs without an OS.

I still have mixed feelings about virtual memory. When I was in college, I thought it would be awesome to integrate the OS and a good programming language so the OS would know whether a program was safe and could run it in kernel mode, avoiding the overhead of context switching, virtual memory mappings, or even having to copy data when two programs wanted to communicate. I've since come to realize virtual memory is still really important as a means to detect and isolate hardware failures... 
 
+David Dalrymple  wrote a great rant recently about the roots of modern software conventions, and how maybe we should make some new conventions.

We stopped by this Chick-fil-A for lunch on the way back from GA. The service was way better than you'd expect for fast food. The manager went out of his way to help us, and Cari was very friendly and helpful.
