Just as a quick followup on yesterday's post, James has now posted a nice Q&A with the most frequently asked questions. The Gmail Help Center also has an excellent security checklist (https://mail.google.com/support/bin/static.py?hl=en&page=checklist.cs&tab=29495).

And just to add one more point: account hijacking is not a theoretical possibility. Every day we thwart tens of thousands of hijacking attempts where the hijacker has the correct account password. We've occasionally had attackers with hundreds of thousands of correct passwords (usually from users who use the same password and user name on other sites). Think about it--you could be one of them.

Is it cumbersome? No, I use it and I rarely notice. As James puts is: "It's a five-second chore each time you do it [when you use a machine other than your own]. .... It protects you from what my wife encountered: the loss of six years' worth of mail, documents, photos, life. Take your choice."

Eastern European Sex Trafficking?
-

I live on the 7th floor of a slightly odd apartment block. The other night I popped down to the roof garden on the first for a sneaky cigarette. On my return the lift took me via ground. It stopped and two slightly rough looking chaps walked in. Faded jeans, worn trainers. They were accompanied by a tall, quite striking blonde. The guys, English accents, talked loudly together, actively avoiding eye contact with me. That's standard lift protocol, but from the blonde I caught a slight hint of a smile. She sounded strongly eastern European.

All three got off at the 5th, where she seemed to be leading them quite excitedly down the corridor.

Now the flat I'm living in is no family location and it's a tad on the plush side. I don't mean to sound a snob but these guys didn't seem the sorts who live around here.

My deduction, if not already clear, is that I'm extremely close to at least one brothel. Do I have corroborating evidence? Well my neighbour the other week suggested she'd heard a rumour of that sort.

Now I don't need to explain to anyone here that strumpet houses really aren't my scene. But this does make Milton Keynes seem a slightly less dull place to be.

Aye - I remember the security there being pretty tight!

This is a fantastic clip. Not only does it explain why we have blind spots - you probably know that already - but it also explains how you can see the vasculature of your own eye.

Burzynski:
You are an amoral fake, preying on the desperate. You're scum.

Marc Stephens:
You are either deranged or vile. Either way, please f**k off.

(By the way Mr Stephens, being abusive isn't illegal in any of the jurisdictions I'm associated with, just in case you want to pretend you're a lawyer again. Pretending you are a lawyer, however, and issuing threats, is a different matter entirely.)

Rob Pike, memorial thread
Rob Pike originally shared:
 
I just heard that, after a long illness, Dennis Ritchie (dmr) died at home this weekend. I have no more information.

I trust there are people here who will appreciate the reach of his contributions and mourn his passing appropriately.

He was a quiet and mostly private man, but he was also my friend, colleague, and collaborator, and the world has lost a truly great mind.
