This is one of the reasons why it's a bad idea to give users domain names under the same namespace as your production domain. The other one being potential theft of domain cookies.

Also, another CA added to my personal list of to-be-avoided.

What a bunch of losers. Both the CA and us for thinking the webpage loaded is legit if the green lock is present.

Nu-s eu mare design guru, dar toate mi se par cam meh. Ala cu protocolul e geeky intr-un fel da' nu spune nimic si ala cu ochiul e singurul care aminteste de soparla, dar in vremurile astea, ochiul ala are conotatii negative. Restul mi se par niste chestii absolut oribile (ceea ce probabil inseama ca cu siguranta o sa-l aleaga pe cel mai gretos).

Update: so it's apparently satire. Awfully believable satire. The fact that so many people (including myself) fell for it speaks volumes of the quality of the ecosystem.
 
Color me surprised. A scaffolding of dependencies built on the principle of "I don't care about dependencies" is rife with bloat.

Cum e la moda sa se manance popcorn pe baza campaniei electorale din US, dau de o gramada de insi care se uita la metricile gresite (aka. popular vote). Pentru ca acu 8 ani am avut nefericirea sa halesc CNN pe paine (ca era singurul canal urmaribil), am invatat inutil de multe chestii despre sistemul electoral american cat sa stiu ca "it's complicated".

BTW, recomand http://www.electoral-vote.com/ pt. urmarit cursa, la fiecare alegeri au rezumat foarte bine poll-urile si diversele evenimente.

On a recent trip to Cuba I brought with me a smartphone and hoped to get Internet access either via WiFi or 3G. I managed that (at a price) but also saw for myself how Cubans get access to an alternate Internet delivered by sneakernet. Cuba is currently poorly served

Large companies being badmouthed by disgruntled former employees are not something new and these need to alway be taken with a grain of salt, but I've recently been reading dozens of similar accounts from Amazonians (or people who pretend it).
