In 1952, Queen Elizabeth became The Queen Mother. 
When we get King Chuck, what will we call Philip? Will he be "Prince Philip, the King Father"?

Marty, Levana, JenW and I played a game called 7 Wonders, which has a somewhat complicated scoring system. The scoring app on my phone has a "share with social media" function, so I shared the game results with G+. I was surprised that I won, and most were surprised that Levana, who hadn't played before, beat Marty.

When I was a kid (well, probably early 20's), I loved Tim Hunkin's TV series The Secret Life of Machines. I didn't know until today that the theme wasn't Dave Brubeck's Take 5, but rather this reggae cover by Val Bennett.

OK Cupid Warning: Their "Instant Login" feature is a massive security hole.

OK Cupid regularly sends me a list of "Recent Matches", a collection of profiles they thing I'm a match with. Today my "Recent Matches" included my girlfriend. So I forwarded her the email, saying "OK Cupid seems to think we'd be a good couple."

She clicked on one of the profiles OK Cupid sent me, and found that she was logged into my OK Cupid account, with no request for my password, or any indication that she was logging out of her account and into mine, other than the "you are logged in as" indicator being different.

I googled the problem, and found an article from 2013 in The Verve which said that (a) this has been an issue since 2009, at least, (b) OK Cupid has been told this is a problem multiple times, but does not respond to emails about it, (c) the links work even after passwords get changed, but will eventually expire (when? who knows), and (d) people have been burned by posting the links on blogs or other public sites without knowing that they will log anyone into their account.

This is bad. There should not be magic links sent out without notice that will log anyone into someone's account. This should not be a known exploit for 5 years. This should not be considered a desired "feature' by OK Cupid.

OK Cupid sends me emails, with links to profiles it thinks I would like.

I sent her a copy of one of these emails.

She clicked on one of the links in the email I sent her.

She was logged into my OK Cupid account.

At no point did it ask her for my OK Cupid credentials. At no point did I tell her my OK Cupid credentials.

The comments do contain more examples of the problem discussed in the article. Very educational.
 
…and do read the comments…at least some of them. 
There has been a lot of talk among Christian bloggers lately about modesty and ways to combat everyone's favorite evil: lust.

So, +Allison Kaese, what do you know about Kirby Delauter? I hear he's in the news lately.

Ignore the thumbnail picture, watch the video, and don't read the YouTube comments.

Oh, and Google+: Stop crossposting my G+ shares of YouTube videos as comments on the video!

Whoever did this mashup did a fabulous job. I am not all that familiar with either song, or their videos, but I would think their two styles would clash more than they do.

I don't know if Taylor Swift and Trent Reznor would be pleased or appalled; it could go either way.

+Martha Smith Poor cat? Psh! Poor people who get scratched every time trying to help the cat. I've seen so many cruel cats that I no longer feel sorry for them, because it's not like they're in physical pain.

At work, we have one of these: http://www.cuisinart.com/discontinued/tea_kettles/kua-17.html. It's a good, fast, tea kettle which has served us well for several years. It's one major flaw: no whistle. The only indication that it is done heating is a rather quiet "click" as it turns off.

Does anyone know where to get a 3rd-party whistle for this thing?

How long it takes is dependent on starting water temperature and amount. Heating a pot full of fresh-from-the-tap wintery cold water takes a lot longer than reheating a pot that's been off the hob for 10 minutes after someone made their cuppa.
