Having previously developed a program that could display a calendar X seconds in the past back to the Julian calendar, I really loved this video. However it seems this little rule was skipped over:

I'm just going to go watch your video. "This video is currently unavailable. Learn more". changes the url to use the embed url instead and it starts playing Oh.

Scary quotes from the owner of Lavabit (a secure email service that decided to shut itself down instead of compromise it's users):

"I wish that I could legally share with you the events that led to my decision. I cannot. I feel you deserve to know what's going on - the first amendment is supposed to guarantee me the freedom to speak out in situations like this. Unfortunately, Congress has passed laws that say otherwise. As things currently stand, I cannot share my experiences over the last six weeks, even though I have twice made the appropriate requests."

"This experience has taught me one very important lesson: without congressional action or a strong judicial precedent, I would strongly recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States."

The Guardian published another fantastic article on this.

"A perfect source would be /dev/urandom"

However your code appears not to make that it's first choice. Is there a reason for this?

Right, now do the test again outdoors and see how much they like that glossy screen on their super portable ultrabook.

Without Steve Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) we would have:
• No iProducts.
• No over expensive laptops.

✔ Without Dennis Ritchie (September 9, 1941 – October 9, 2011) we would have:
• No Windows.
• No Unix.
• No C.
• No Programs.
• A large setback in computing.
• No Generic-text Languages.
• We would all read in Binary.

✔ They died in the same year and the same month but it seems only few notice the death of Dennis Ritchie compared to Steve Jobs.
✔ It won't cost you anything to press the share button so spread it ! :)
