So I'm getting spammed by what appears to be a reputable blackmail-extortion site, "MyLife.com". They are telling me that they can help me control my online visibility, and that people are searching for me, that I have been "exposed" on various online sites, etc. I can even go to them and look up the profile they have on me (which not only lists what they know, but where they got it... places like my public G+ profile, my public LinkedIn profile, etc).

What they don't tell me is what these "threatening" sites which are "Exposing" my data is, or who is searching for me, or any useful information -- unless I sign up for their service for $5-10/month, depending on how long I sign up.  That's why I'm calling them a blackmail/extortion site.

Has anyone else been hit by these guys?

We (me and my girlfriend, whom G+ inexplicably won't let me link to in this message) went to Lick Brook today and hiked down and back up to the falls in these pictures. One of the pictures has had effects auto-added by Google, and I think it looks nice, albeit a bit more red than it looked in real life. It's a nice location, although there's about a 1000 ft vertical change from the trail head to the falls that was much easier going down than back up.

I went to Ithaca Falls today and played around with the panorama photo feature of my phone

SCOTUS affirmed that same-sex marriage is a right.

When you receive emails from a website which someone signed up as a member using your email address (perhaps they mistyped theirs, perhaps they picked a random throwaway address which happened to be yours), would you feel it acceptable to screw around with their account? Cancelling it?

Last week Nicoise S used the car sharing service BlaBlaCar to hire Nancy to take him from Orleans to Paris (a 90 minute car ride for under 10 Euros, not bad), and both thought the trip went well. How do I know? I received the trip confirmation notice, the receipt (including about half of Nicoise S's credit card number), the reminder email, and the evaluation confirmation emails.

This happens to me constantly. There are two Susan Dennis's - one in Chicago and one in Georgia who use both my gmail address and my yahoo mail address (which I do not even use but have ported into gmail) constantly.

The Chicago one got married last year. I got a lot of her wedding receipts and even some of the stuff from her realtor about her new house. The Georgia one got a new dog and signed up for every freakin dog website in the world. PLUS got a new credit card and used my email address.

In the beginning, I tried to do the right thing. I tried to let the places know they were barking up the wrong susandennis tree.  But finally I just started screwing with as many as I can and want to.  It's now my hobby.

RIP you glorious gentleman.

I'd say he had a good run. And right now I imagine Satan reading the news, realising he's going to get his ass kicked AND be dethroned by the biggest badass of them all.

This is amazing, I didn't know he did all of these things.

This was an experiment that didn't go quite right. I'm not sure what would have made it work better. Probably asking +Jenn C  to move at different times. At least this picture has the whole of the falls in, unlike the previous one.+

Tonight was the monthly Electronics Meetup at the Ithaca Generator, and I worked on the Concertina project. I have a modicum of success! I can now read a button, and play a MIDI note based off of it. I can even do that with two buttons! Yay!

I do not have dyslexia[1], so this is not directly pertinent to me. But I like the concept.

[1] That I am aware of. I have never had a reading problem, so I've never been tested to my knowledge.
From Dezeen:"What I wanted to do was recreate or simulate the emotions of reading with dyslexia to try and put across how frustrating it is to try and read something simple," Britton told Dezeen......
