Radioactive materials ionize the air, so it starts conducting currents between the wires. :)

Well fuck. I've had fears of government influence of open source projects, but I've always felt tin foil hat about it. #truecrypt

Not sure if being trolled or hacked. Never good. Thoughts?
####

The message on TrueCrypt's new website got me thinking:
Using TrueCrypt is not secure as it may contain unfixed security issues

Let's isolate the first letter of each word:
(U)sing (T)rueCrypt (i)s (n)ot (s)ecure (a)s (i)t (m)ay (c)ontain (u)nfixed (s)ecurity (i)ssues

Result?
utinsaimcusi

Let's spread that!
uti nsa im cu si

That is latin for
"If I wish to use the NSA"

Stay away from future Truecrypt releases. This is clearly a warning from the developers.

When you follow a terrorist on Twitter, Twitter suggests other terrorists you might want to follow.

If you want to discover the Twitter accounts of mass-murdering, child-killing psychopaths, Twitter can help. 

If you follow a terrorist or terrorist organization, Twitter will suggest others for you to follow also. Gosh, thanks, Twitter!

We have always believed that it's important to differentiate between different types of government requests. We already publish criminal requests separately from National Security Letters: http://goo.gl/OCFck Lumping the two categories together would be a step back for users. Our request to the government is clear: to be able to publish aggregate numbers of national security requests, including FISA disclosures, separately.

For more background please read this New York Times piece: http://goo.gl/t5P7e
Google pressed the government to allow it to publish more granular data on national security requests than Facebook or Microsoft published, and said anything less did not provide enough transparency.

C rocks

Sitting in a day-long meeting about various security things, tuning out the presenter as i have to work on some crazy kernel compression code with "tricky" code like:
  latest += *ip++;
and I totally get it right.

Next presenter puts up a slide with some C code and a security problem in it as an example.  I've been doing this for decades, it should be trivial to find:

int foo (...)
{
    unsigned char key[KEY_LENGTH];
...
    memset(key, 0, sizeof(key));
    return 0;
}

I speak up, say "the problem is..."

Get it toally wrong.  Would never have figured that one out.

Time to go eat good cheese and drink wine near the Flatiron to drown the problem of having to live with C for many more decades to come.

C sucks.

Update: fixed the trailing ')', that wasn't the issue...
