User agreement for itunes on the iphone

(e:terry) showed me this earlier. The user agreement for iTunes on the iPhone is 62 freaking pages long. Talk about fine print, no one reads that.

Dancing at the cosmopolitan on genesee

Went dancing at the cosmopolitan on genesee. It was awesome again. I think this might be the first time I was in a place with a real candle lit chandelier.

I had a lot of fun dancing to perceptor and sweated up a storm. This time we took the cherry bridge there but genessee to Michigan walking home. It seemed pretty safe both ways.

The art was much more expensive this time. One painting was $7000. It was pretty cool but $7000 is $7000.

spam ! = ham

I was at north campus today and decided to go hit up the Korean restaurant for some kimbob. While there I saw a sign with a picture of "Ham sushi" considering I like the kimbob which is already practically Ham sushi I thought I would giver it as try. What camera out was not a little slice of hamsteak but a chunk of spam.

This is honestly even worse the the crab -> krab

Great Analogy

copyright infringement != theft
Theft occurs when one deprives the owner of the original.

Taking a picture of art in a museum can be considered copyright infringement, but it is certainly not the same thing as thieving the original.

Drawing With Math

I needed to take a break from programming content systems. These pictures are formula driven and took random color samples from the pic of (e:mike) high fiving the skyway , and were inspired by that guys parasol.

When passwords are usernames

This is a stupid practice for anyone. Never make your username/password the same thing, never make them both tiny numbers.

I can't believe there is this commercial paging and directory software for hospitals/government organizations that exists where the vendor must be encouraging customers to use login/password combos that are both that same publicly available ids.

Its so silly because the numbers are so low, even if you didn't have the lookup ability you could just guess, say 4004/4004 until you got it right. Clearly, you can't 100% blame the vendor on this as anyone in their right mind would recognize that is not a secure setup. Especially for an app on the open, public web.

It kills me because I want to tell the people so bad that their data is totally vulnerable but at the same time, I don't want to get involved. Its a real moral dilema.

Even worse, older versions of the software simply let you set the cookie to the ID you want and you are in. That is just lunacy. They fixed the cookie issue after I contacted them by phone a couple years back. Looking back it was so funny trying to explain to their software engineer how insecure using that cookie was - he was not getting it at all.

Sadly, some of their customers haven't upgraded. If I was the vendor I would give away free upgrades because if anyone does exploit this, they will lose all of their credibility.

Its even worse because the vendor lists the organizations right on their homepage.

Libertad's Dragon

By the time I unlocked my phone and got the camera ready (e:libertad) was already almost gone. The pic still came out pretty cool with Lara and Cindy in there. In the large size you can see (e:libertad) pretty good.
