The story here is not the arrest of the hackers; rather, it's the sad state of the lack of security of the US military and security websites. A bit ironic considering that US 'intelligence' agencies are spying on the rest of the world.
 
The hacker who broke into networks belonging to, amongst others, the US Army and NASA has been charged along with his alleged accomplices.

Another move to get the masses using Linux. The German government has shown before that it's keen on making its citizens aware of the risks of running outdated software. Over the past couple of years about German citizens have been urged to ditch older versions of Internet Explorer for a more modern, more secure browser. Munich is also no stranger to Linux. Back in 2003, the city began a migration to Debian-based LiMux, citing autonomy and cost-savings as core concerns.

You don't have to sound like an obnoxious braggart when talking about your successes.
When it comes to having a successful career, there's no substitute for hard work. On the other hand, hard work won’t do you any good if your accomplishments are going unnoticed.

Is anyone having a problem with AdSense not displaying on their site? None of the ads appear anywhere on any of my sites. I am in the process of changing over to the new ads but have not implemented any yet.

Not on my server, no. Unfortunately, I am using a shared server (can't afford the expense).

However, I did manage to figure it out. I had made some changes to my hosts file (I run Linux) and blocked a lot of "unwanted" sites, but it also included some that were now obviously "wanted". Back to the drawing board.

This is an excellent article for those who feel compelled to tell people where they are right now or when/where they are going on vacation!

Is a demotion and two years paid suspension REALLY punishment?

Paying high prices for your e-books? You can thank Steve Jobs; he even bragged about it in his bio (not to mention his antics have caused his company to be charged with price fixing).

This is an excerpt from the article linked to below. It's written by an expert in content management, which includes the classification of information, i.e., metadata, which is data the NSA has been tracking. Although many people (who are not experts in the field) are blowing it off as not being anything important, the author seems to think quite different. An excerpt from the article:

"The politicians rush to calm the public by reassuring us that no one is listening to the actual content (data). That only the metadata -- information about the calls is being captured for analysis. I would argue that this is the greater risk. Not because it goes too far but that it permits interpretive bias with the illusion of analytical certainty.

The power of metadata is two-fold. First it allows for classification of information it describes.... The second power is that it makes possible identifying relationships between information that you would otherwise not see as connected.

The potential for abuse is not diminished because the content itself is not included. If anything that abuse is enabled more by the degree to which interpretation must be used to establish the intent of the calls and the relationships they represent. There is clearly a trade-off between security and privacy and this type of collection may be a part of the price to maintain our safety but do not believe it is not a threat if the government does not listen in directly.

The metadata really does matter and is enough to endanger what privacy remains."

Lee Underwood's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
The best plumbing company I have ever used. They have always provided good service and have knowledgeable and courteous repairmen. When we had problems with the toilet, I purchased a new one to replace it. I had to call Frank Gay to do it as I am disabled but when the plumber got here he said he could fix the current one, and we could return the new one and get a refund.
