For those curious: Kolab Now was not vulnerable to the recently revealed "FREAK" SSL vulnerability.
Companies and U.S. agencies scramble to fix a newly discovered security hole. Hundreds of thousands of sites such as Whitehouse.gov, NSA.gov and FBI.gov are vulnerable.

As a swimmer, I totally get it.
 
I'm either a genius or a moron. I can't quite decide which. I guess time will tell.

I obviously work in front of the computer the whole day, and it's not healthy. I tried the zombie shuffling desk, but after a couple months of walking, I got plantar fasciitis and had to take a break. And while I was proud of doing it while I did it and knew I needed to, it was never really something I enjoyed doing.

In fact, I've never found an activity that I like doing. I know people who run, and get that "runner's high", and they try to explain that I must be doing things wrong. 

The one exception is swimming. I actually like swimming, and while I'm only slightly faster than a snail (yes, I googled "worlds fastest snail" just to make sure - I can take on any snail and win, dammit), I actually like it. And there's a pool just a mile and a half away from my house.

But parking there is just not worth the hassle, and while I've tried biking there, when I did that I noticed that I just absolutely dreaded the ride back. There was no way I was going to enjoy swimming for an hour without constantly knowing that after I'm done, I then have to bike back in our hilly neighborhood.

I know, a mile and a half is nothing, but several years ago I did it a few times and just stopped.  It wasn't going to happen. I wanted to swim, not ride my bike.

My trial solution right now? To try to get in shape (or rather, not get in worse shape)? 

An electric bike.

So yeah. My solution to try to get in shape is to get a bike that I don't need to pedal.

That's really some "special" genius right there.

I really like how the staircase is in the tree.  However, it doesn't look structurally sound with the trunk being hollow.

Now would be a good time to adjust the theory.
 
Multi-threaded programming, theory vs. practice.

Have you received a text offering you a $200 +Amazon gift card? You may want to think twice before clicking that link.

ESET detects this #virus  as Android/Gazon.A worm. #Android
Fake Amazon gift cards are being sent to Android devices via text message, but it's malware not discounts that is being spread among the recipients.

At this point, we understand RadioShack is throttling down for a massive shift. There’s too much evidence that Radio Shack as we know it has to go away, making room for something else. It could be a partnership with a carrier like Sprint, wherein…

Probably the same reason apple has stores dotted around the globe.  So, you can walk in and play with the latest Amazon goodies - see if its for you - maybe even walk out with one.
