I am Spartacus^H Rhys Morgan.

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.)

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."

Rob Pike, memorial thread
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.
