Still concerned about TrueCrypt development, though...
 
Mostly good news for TrueCrypt and VeraCrypt users:
TrueCrypt, one of our favorite encryption tools of the past few years, has finally finished undergoing a security audit. Here’s how it fared, and what that means for you.

I wonder when the Dutch government will follow suit...
 
Germany pushes for widespread end-to-end email encryption - https://gigaom.com/2015/03/09/germany-pushes-for-widespread-end-to-end-email-encryption/ can't see the UK gov encouraging this, somehow
The biggest webmail providers in Germany will soon encourage their customers to use full-blown end-to-end email encryption. The providers, including Deutsche Telekom and United Internet, will next month roll out a browser plugin that’s supposed to make traditionally laborious PGP technology easier to use – and in the process, they’re addressing a key concern about…

Interview with Chris Hedges, 20-year war correspondent with the NYT, and his warning about the surveillance state that we don't seem to care enough about...

"What I find disturbing is that although the revelations of Edward Snowden are known, we're not reacting. We don't understand the danger that's in front of it, when you talk about a population that is watched and tracked 24 hours a day. The relationship between a population that is monitored on that level and knows that [the government watches] them is a relationship between masters and slaves -- you can't even use the word liberty anymore and we're already at that point."

GPG was een prachtig experiment, vindt cryptografiedeskundige Moxie Marlinspike, maar het is te log geworden, gebruiksonvriendelijk en niet meer van deze tijd.

We had a friendly waitress and the food was good for the price. No complaints.

The aquarium is pretty small so you don't spend an awful lot of time there. Therefore, it is hard to justify the $23 admission fee per adult. That being said, if you really take your time and enjoy looking at various species of fish and other sea life, the submarine tunnel is a great place. It's quite long and very pretty, though there were maybe a bit too many sharks there.

We stayed here for several nights as Royal Beach Club guests and we were very satisfied with the hotel, the facilities and amenities. The staff was friendly and service was excellent. Only two small issues to report, actually. One is not even something the Westin can help. That is that the Guam Reef hotel next door looks grubby. The other is that the breakfast buffet in the Royal Beach Club lounge is a bit limited. Some more things to choose from would be nice.

Don't believe the boast that the Sea Grill is one of Guam's finest restaurants. It isn't. We had dinner there as a small family on a week night. The restaurant was fairly full with tourists like us, the majority Japanese. Hardly surprising, since the majority of tourists on Guam are Japanese. Despite this, the restaurant did not serve a decent sashimi. The quality of the tuna meat was poor and I had to eat it with a fork. The salmon was tasteless so we were grateful that the sashimi had come with soy sauce. My main course was not what I had ordered but to be fair, this was cleared up quickly. Staff was inattentive at best, indifferent at worst. The only thing that came fast was the bill. One customer dropped his hat behind his seat. It was there for nearly the entire dinner, while staff stepped on it. Worst of all was the price, however. The food was of below average quality at best yet prices are steep. More like highway robbery, really. The Sea Grill is a pretentious family restaurant, nothing more. Cross the street and go to TGI Friday for the same quality and a fair price.

We went here for a quick meal and were pleasantly surprised by the food and the friendly service. For the type of food offered, quality was very good. The fries with cheese and bacon were very tasty! Next time I will definitely eat here again.

The place is modern and stylish in decoration, also friendly to children. Prices are a bit steep for the style and quality of the kitchen. The restaurant is ideally located in the middle of town. Perfect for a quick meal. Sadly though, quick is not possible at this place. We've visited twice. The first time we ordered just drinks. After 15 minutes our drinks still were not served so we ordered a second time with a second waitress. When our drinks still failed to arrive, we got up to leave. Our order then arrived, twice. The second time we went there for a quick lunch. We ordered basic food which took 40 minutes and a complaint to arrive. To their credit, the staff apologized for the delay and our drinks were on the house, which is a nice gesture. To make things worse, the restaurant was swarming with flies, which is not very hygienic. The quality of the food is reasonable but nothing special.
