Bit old I know but just installed that Chrome extension which replaces "the cloud" with "my butt" & made my morning.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y && sudo shutdown -r now
(thanks #ansible  for a few-minute fix, I love you)

Afterwards can confirm in /usr/share/doc/openssl/changelog.Debian.gz line containing "SECURITY UPDATE: memory disclosure in TLS heartbeat extension"
#heartbleed  
 
New OpenSSL "Heartbleed"  vulnerability announced today.

+Nick Doyle  I didn't get the Gitolite connection, but thanks -- sounded like a compliment :)

I do like the web interface too, and I do use it when I am away from my main computer.  I guess you could say using IMAP+TB(or whatever your client is) reduces your exposure to this sort of thing to some extent at least.

Introduction
Hi I'm Nick. Born and live in Melbourne Australia. Love it here but like many of my fellow isolated islanders also love travel. I lived in Germany for a while, also Niu Zillund, Japan's pretty high on the to-visit list. I'd like to get a motorcycle and tour around it.

For a crust I do IT, a "generalist" I guess. If I was to put a few keywords of stuff I'm strong on and enjoy: architecture & design, open source, web, networks. Currently I'm leading an engineering team building an online Movie, TV & Digital Rights system. It's interesting being such a new area, one that is changing rapidly and only getting more and more important as time goes on. I've learnt a lot, and basically put together most of the system, now oversee a small team on continuing new development. Our newly-launched very-basic site is here: https://cumulusmn.com

Some things I enjoy & am interested in:
Gaming
I'm still playing heaps of Battlefield 3, and still have terrible k:d. I like to say I'm great on the strategy but terrible on the aiming.
I love adventure games, like Space Quest. I'm actually playing Monkey Island on the PS3 for the first time(!) atm.
Also love the Fallout series, and new beautiful games like Journey.
Most recently Double Fine's "The Cave", loved it.

Motorcycles
I ride a Daytona 675 (if that means anything to you reader :) If not - "It's red and showy and sexy", which I normally wouldn't expect of myself, but there you go. Perhaps I'll also end up marrying a starlet. With a husky 3-cylinder voice. I made some videos of my ass riding it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbByp7pKRxw

Reading
I've a modest bookshelf containing the small amount of great books I have so far managed to find. At time of writing, enjoying Carl Sagan's "Pale Blue Dot". He's one of my heroes. (along with Alain De Botton, Richard Feynman, Mark Twain ...  others)

Music
Generally electronic, afro, soul, dub, house (real house, not 'progressive'). I love and support community radio; it's true that PBS in Melbourne is one of the best radio stations on the planet. It's impressive the breadth of music they play (check them out, you can listen live here: http://pbsfm.org.au/)
If you share similar interests and want to hit me up, my Soundcloud is here: https://soundcloud.com/nick-p-doyle/following

I think that's enough to give you a picture.
Hello and pleased to meet you!

Charlie gives friendly, honest, service for a reasonable price. He's also obviously very experienced with Triumphs in particular. Got the 30k on my Daytona done there and it felt great afterwards (I was having the common problem with the stiff suspension). Going back there for a checkup soon.

The couple that own Meccanica are really friendly and personable, always up for a chat (particularly if it involves bikes). The bike decor and big screen are very cool. They also make a pretty good coffee, great place to stop in when riding Reefton. I'm thinking of going up there right now to watch Moto GP =)

Have used these guys a couple times to get tyre changes done on the vtr 250, as well as fixups on a friend's cb250. For the cb250 work they helped source a second-hand tail light for me, fitted etc, all good. So unlike the other extremely disgruntled guy above, I've been pretty happy with them.
