So I get a text from one of my co-workers trying to set up her mom's new wireless router. She's using her work laptop, because we try to be cool about such things, and recognize that it is unrealistic to expect someone to have a laptop with them all the time and never ever use it for personal stuff. However, we don't give them administrator access. We're cool, not dumb.
So in this text, she sends me this weird error message:
What the fuck? Really Cisco? Someone at a company known for actually having a clue about things like security and best practices decided that authenticating to a security dialog isn't enough, someone has to actually LOG IN AS AN ADMIN.
Fuck man, I beat Adobe over this because it was stupid, and now you do this? Do I really have to start using Juniper gear now? Are you really that fucking incompetent? Just fix this shit. No excuses, no justifications, just fix this bullshit.| Comments ()

I GET MOTHERFUCKING EMAIL!!!
OMFG, this is the best random conspiracy theory shit ever. Posted unedited for your enjoyment:
The primary-school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, approximately 45 miles from the Colt Arms Factory, is just another one in the long line of government psyops designed to persuade the public to allow the government to take away their guns, and their means to defend themselves against the government and the banksters that the politicians really serve.
The small children murders are designed to create hysterical emotions in women to get them to demand that guns are banned. If that doesn‚t work they will continue with their evil agenda with worse and worse atrocities on younger children, until they get their way and disarm the people, so that they cannot fight back against government tyranny.
Newtown is the U.S.A.‚s Dunblane, which was orchestrated in Scotland in 1996 by the British establishment, to whip up hysteria in order to ban all handguns from the U.K. It was a follow-up to the Hungerford Massacre in England in 1987, which was carried out by mind-controlled Michael Ryan, who then shot himself so he could not be questioned, and it was used to ban semi-automatic rifles and shotguns.
It‚s always the same people behind it ˆ the gun-grabbers who want the people to be defenceless against the gun-grabbers‚ employers ˆ the banksters who own all of the politicians. They get their politicians to pass legislation for them, in order to remove the people‚s freedoms and means of defending themselves, and enslave them in a draconian police-state, under a mountain of debt, and then exterminate the useless-eaters.
The Dunblane massacre was supposedly carried out by Thomas Hamilton, who was a paedophile and procurer of children, for a high level paedophile ring involving senior members of the Tony Blair Labour-Party shadow-cabinet and others. The massacre served two purposes, it achieved their desired handgun-ban and killed the abused children, so they could not be witnesses against the elite-paedophiles. They then had the findings of the inquiry sealed for 100 years, which is proof of the above.
Like Newtown there were two shooters, Hamilton and a hit-man who shot Hamilton and made it look like Hamilton committed suicide after shooting 16 children, so that he couldn‚t be questioned. Hamilton was found in the school gymnasium slumped against a wall and still gurgling, when an off-duty policeman PC Grant McCutcheon entered the gym and saw two semi-automatic pistols, one on either side of Hamilton‚s body.
The autopsy revealed that Hamilton was killed with a .38 revolver. These people always slip-up with their crimes. There was no .38 revolver for him to have shot himself with. Thus, there was a second shooter who killed Hamilton.
Similarly, the first reports from Newtown were of two shooters, just like mind-controlled James Holmes in the Denver Batman Cinema massacre, the story then quickly changes to just one.
Columbine was similar, in that a team of shooters in black outfits were seen there and the two accused were on mind-altering prescription-drugs.
Wake up and see the pattern and their modus operandi and don‚t fall for it. Never let them take your guns, except from your cold dead hands.
All of these are staged events to whip-up hysterical public support for banning the people from having guns. It works the same in every country ˆ Hungerford in England, Dunblane in Scotland, Port Arthur in Australia and the list in America is endless, because of the Second Amendment and the people having a pro-gun culture. That makes it much more difficult to break the Americans‚ love of guns and the Second Amendment, which was put in place to protect the people from the government.
Gun bans work well for tyrants. They worked well for Hitler, Stalin and Chairman Mao, to name just three.
If you want to stop these massacres, wake-up and get rid of the banksters, their puppet-politicians and all gun-grabbers; arm teachers and ban gun-free zones.
From one who can see the pattern and hopes to enable you to see it too.
I...i have no words. What else can you say when presented with such shining lunacy?| Comments ()

Why I like "Once Upon A Time"
I didn't expect to like it, but I do, and yes, the show is uneven, acting-wise, sometimes it has a special effects budget measured in "change under the cushions" and an even worse costuming budget. But I like it because the show doesn't turn the women into helpless remoras, always in danger unless they are clinging to a man.
Take this clip, of Snow White defending her daughter:
An ogre is charging her, (at her own instigation to lure it away from her daughter), and what does she do?
Does she scream and hope to be rescued?
Does she run and let some fortuitous accident handle it?
Does she stand there, nock an arrow, and point-blank shoot that motherfucker in the goddamned eye?
"Once Upon A Time" succeeds where so very many shows and movies fail: The women in that show are just as capable of the full range of human behavior including bravery and badassery as the men.
For that alone, I hope it keeps going.

It's really different from the old version, but keeps the principles that make Twitteriffic the bomb-fucking-diggity of twitter clients.
It's beautiful, and I have to say, I cannot think of a single iOS App I have that feels as fast as Twitteriffic 5. It's so fast, it's almost jarring. I love it. They updated the UI without fucking up usability, they made it faster and easier to use, and given the quality of the product, it is dirt fucking cheap. Had I had to pay for the iPad version separately, I'd have done so sans even slight hesitation. The Iconfactory are free to vacuum my fucking pockets.
You know what will drive me to App.net? Apperiffic (CRAIG, PLEASE GOD DO NOT USE THAT NAME!) combined with no more Twitteriffic. Because Craig and his team are that fucking awesome.
GO BUY THIS NOW!!!| Comments ()
