A brief history of "perfect security" of locks. #99pi   #fb  
The pursuit of lock picking is as old as the lock, which is itself as old as civilization. But in the entire history of the world, there was only one brief moment, lasting about 70 years, where you...

Quantum Experiment Threat Modeling
I'm enjoying Jonathan Dowling's "Schrödinger's Killer App: Race to Build the World's First Quantum Computer " and it's interesting to read as he describes physicists eliminating not only random errors to their experiments to prove quantum effects versus hid...

As usual after any high-profile event, be wary of phishing emails about it. #fb  
US-CERT is aware of phishing campaigns masquerading as emails from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) or the identity protection firm CSID.

Changing employer is a good time to change your password. #fb  
The F.B.I. and the Justice Department are investigating whether officials for the St. Louis Cardinals hacked into the networks of the Houston Astros to steal information about player personnel.

Agreed - and tired of hacking being used to describe this. Trespass - yes, Hacking - no.

"What leaders do is push decision-making down the organization as far as possible so that the decision is made by those people who are closest to the information. This is contrary to the standard habit of pushing information to those who have the authority for making the decision."

CASC this morning was all about HIPAA. RUCC discussing security nearly in parallel. Cybersecurity risk management around research is hitting the big time.

My TV is getting a client-side SSL path validation error... I guess I'm impressed that it has security implemented.

Excellent store. I often have to get shoes ordered due to having large feet and they always do so happily and without a commitment on my part to buy until I've tried them on. This makes them consistently my first choice for shoe shopping.

Top notch rooms and breakfasts. Sitting out back in the garden was an added treat. J&R are great hosts and take extra steps to make you feel at home. The location, at the transition from downtown Louisville to the historic district, is convient to downtown and the track.

Certainly among the best pulled pork I've ever had and a very good value. Good choice of sides with grits, mac&cheese, slaw, cornbread, beans - all very good, plus some others we didn't try. An out of the way place well worth the effort to find.

A couple dozen beers on tap (a good fraction local) and a large, large bottled selection of beer. Good looking wine selection, plus some infused mixed drinks that were very good. Entrees we tried - fish'n'chips and gnocchi - both very good.

Good chicken salad sandwich, SW BBQ salad, iced tea (some fruit flavor that I now forget) and coffee drinks.

The salad and soup bar was very good with a variety of german and not-so-german salads, a nice Italian Wedding soup, pickled herring, and bread. A good value. The entrees were only OK (Rouladen was not terribly flavorful, sitting too long I think, dumpling was a gooey mess, all topped with way too much heavy gravy; breading on schnitzle was too heavy; red cabbage was good though) and very overpriced. Next time I'd do the soup and salad bar with a simple sausage or sandwich.
