Cheat codes aren't just for cruising past bosses in video games; there are cheat codes for a lot of cars, too, that can get you past the annoying ping of a seat belt chime, access diagnostic info only your mechanic can usually see, or give you control over features like traction control and GPS lockout. On recent and higher-end cars with in-dash computer consoles, turning off or re-configuring some of these features is just a matter of getting to...

An anonymous reader writes: Bruce Upbin at Forbes reports on a new and insidious way for a malicious website to spy on a computer. Any computer running a late-model Intel microprocessor and a Web browser using HTML5 (i.e., 80% of all PCs in the world) is vulnerable to this attack. The exploit, whi...

Story
Tagline
I'm a Perl programmer and far too educated to be a nerd
Introduction
I am a great believer in Freudian psychoanalysis, swim often, and love dogs such as my Mini Fox Terrier, and Italian Greyhounds.

I read many novels (usually by women of course because their books are much more appealing), science-oriented books, and things like the history of the Maya.

In the distant past I played a lot of chess.

Bragging rights
I'm the president of the Silver Sharks swimming club, and have published about 85 Perl modules.
