Something to play with later...
The Aurullia series are Tom Beddard's interpretation of a fractal formula called Mandalay, a specific type of Mandelbox with additional parameters that allow scaling of the folding on individual axes, either in parallel or one after.

So I read the Kaspersky report about a Linux Turla, and decided the report was either incomplete or mistaken.

In short: ordinary Linux users don't have access to raw sockets.

An acquaintance pointed out that Wireshark's dumpcap could be a vector, if set up IAW BCP. So, I set up my own wireshark/dumpcap to require a password with "sudo -g". Blogged it here:

#linux

Okay, just did some playing around, and I now have wireshark/dumpcap configured to use a password from my user account. (This is to prevent someone from using a trojan running as you to sniff your packets, if you've set up dumpcap to run setuid root, or with linux capabilities.) ...

HD 219134: Three Super-Earths Found Orbiting Star 21 Light-Years Away

The planetary system HD 219134 hosts an outer giant planet and three inner super-Earths, one of which transits in front of the star.

The transiting super-Earth, named HD 219134b, is approximately 4.5 times more massive than the Earth and 1.6 times larger, and orbits its star once every three days.

The planet has a density similar to the Earth’s. It is by far the closest transiting planet known today.

FALLACY REF is the best collection of memed logical fallacies in the history of memed logical fallacy collections.

I did some quick Google sleuthing and could not find the original source, but [EDIT] I have been told it was Glen Welch, to whom my sincerest thanks.

Now go. Share. Fill the internet with logic awareness. Future generations will thank you.

H/t to +Jane Skau​ for bringing this wonderfulness to my attention!

Ross 780 has an unusual gas giant...: http://youtu.be/qNcnNkJKT2E

Okay...today I learned about "Hot Jupiters" that are gas giants that are close-in. More astronomical fun from Elite:Dangerous. :)

Unlike any other life on Earth, these extraordinary bacteria use energy in its purest form – they eat and breathe electrons – and they are everywhere

I like it. I like it a lot.
 
i realize that this rant was targeted at SDN, but it applies equally to the security industry.

EFF defends What's Her Face? from Facebook's bogus trademark claims.
Back in the fall of 2011, some undergraduates at Yale created a cool class project. As part of their law and technology class, Bay Gross and Charlie Croom built a website and game that allowed Facebook users to discover how many of their “friends” they really know.
