Yay! Other ribbons found!, assorted links and other news.
Not as thick as I'd like, but maybe I could be creative and make it larger, using twice the amount of ribbons?

Found the spiffy Origami book as well. Am probably ordering it.

Props to Michael for covering for the hardware engineer. I'm just amused that they were able to sneak the server back in. And then say, "Oh, we just rebooted it".

Facebook information could be sniffable: http://www.theregister.com/2007/06/26/sniffing_private_facebook_info/

It only implies that someone could guess and check to see if you have some specific words on your profile. So they would have to know you, and then maybe have something specific they're looking for. Which could or could not be a problem. It's a bit like bruteforcing a password: trying different combinations over and over, but unless bruteforcing the password, a correct guess only tells you that it's correct, and does not grant you access to the account.

That's one heavily indebted hardware engineer. =:D As one commenter noted, why on Earth wasn't there a fail-over in place? This time, it was just the server going AWOL, but it could easily have been a fire in a power supply, or some other catastrophic failure. Still, everyone lived happily ever after. ^_^
