Hats off to Ellen DeGeneres for exposing a useless and insecure product–Internet Password Minder–and doing it in an amusing way while helping to raise awareness of password security issues.
And thanks to Naked Security for bringing it to my attention. Seriously funny.]]>
If you’ve ever used a Microsoft Windows OS over the last decade or so, you’ve undoubtedly come across the infamous blue screen of death, more commonly referred to by the acronym BSOD. Arguably the most famous BSOD sighting was at Comdex in 1998, when Microsoft exec Chris Capossela — now Microsoft’s Chief Marketing Officer — was demonstrating the still-in-development Windows 98 to an assembled throng of Comdex attendees, with Microsoft co-founder and then-CEO Bill Gates by his side. The rest, as they say, is history, as shown by this humorous video clip:
If you are looking to thoroughly and securely wipe a hard drive, here’s how to do it:
Tablets, of course, are a vital component of Christian iconography, as the Old Testament tells us. On Mount Sinai, God gave Moses two tablets (of the analog kind) upon which the deity had inscribed the rules for his creations, a process which saw Moses on the mountain for 40 days and 40 nights without food or water.But when Moses came down the mountain and discovered the Israelites cavorting around a golden calf, he smashed the tablets, burnt the idol, ground it up, mixed it with water, made everyone drink it, then ordered the killing of 3,000 of of those Israelites who didn’t immediately side with him (Exodus 32:19-28).Moses was then told to carve a new set of tablets, and upon them God restored the sacred text files from what was presumably a celestial backup, thus retiring history’s first recorded tablet tech-support ticket.

Have a great week!
Tá sé an joke d’aois agus is dócha caite amach go hiomlán, ach ní raibh mé in ann resist scríobh faoi. Tar éis an tsaoil, tá mé ar Geek agus Ríomhchláraitheoir ó bhealach ar ais, agus mar sin bhuaileann sé sa bhaile.
C. Cén fáth a bhfuil mearbhall ríomhchláraitheoirí Oíche Shamhna leis na Nollag?
A. Tá Toisc 31 Deireadh Fómhair agus an 25 Nollaig an gcéanna; dá bhrí sin, Oíche Shamhna = Nollag!
Mura ndéanann tú é a fháil, ní bhíonn tú ar Geek fíor. D’fhéadfaí a thabhairt Geek fíor gur míniú níos ciallmhaire ar an gcaidreamh Deireadh Fómhair 31 = Nollaig 25 ná “Oíche Shamhna = Nollag!“
An féidir leat freisin a mhíniú cén fáth 16 = 20 = 10? Cad é faoi 86 = 126 = 56?
Stuif spraoi. Geek siamsaíochta.
BTW, tá Googling Verboten! Iad siúd a fhaigheann Beidh Google Schlag i nead Arsch!
Iar do fhreagra sa tuairimí.
Q. Why do programmers confuse Halloween with Christmas?
A. Because Oct. 31 and Dec. 25 are the same; therefore, Halloween = Christmas!
If you don’t get it, you’re not a true Geek. A true Geek could give a more sensible interpretation of the relationship OCT. 31 = DEC. 25 than “Halloween = Christmas!”
Can you also explain why 16 = 20 = 10? How about 86 = 126 = 56?
Fun stuff. Geek entertainment.
BTW, Googling is Verboten! Those who Google will receive a Schlag in den Arsch!
