Paranoia Agent

Got to be one of the more psychological, twisted anime series I've seen for a while. It hits you, kinda like Fight Club does, although it's obvious halfway that...Collapse ) The animation is not "pretty", people are not "perfect". That's not what the focus is.

But yes, it's recommended, if you want to watch something that'll make you think a bit...

--Series: Paranoia Agent.
--Length: 13 episodes (25 min/eps)
--Total Size: 2.21 GB
-> can send, upon request, via YouSendIt (e-mailed to myself, and forwarded from there, since we're not sure 'bout YouSendIt's privacy policy.) - essentially, via HTTP.

Dang... $4 per disk... I think I'll stick with my single layer <$1 disks, and sacrifice some time in compressing movies before burning.. Movies? Wait, no, I mean, um, anime! Yeah! >.> Besides, I don't have a dual layer DVD burner anyways...

(Just watch, someone's going to give me grief over the above statement of pirating movies.)

Mmm, I look forward to thee~ http://www.apple.com/macosx/upgrade/compare.html = comparison chart.

T-10 days. I haven't been this excited for an OS update for awhile. Then again, this is the first time I'm paying for it (via school's subscription, so it's only slightly less than $30), instead of getting it illegally.

Proof-of-concept code targeting security holes in Firefox and the Mozilla Suite have started appearing on public mailing lists. An attacker could exploit the flaws to launch malicious code. But users can protect themselves by updating to Firefox 1.0.3 and Mozilla Suite 1.7.7.

...

Specifically, the concept code targets:

A glitch where the URL of a Web site "favicons" icon is not verified before being changed through JavaScript. An attacker can exploit this to launch malicious code with escalated privileges using a specially crafted "javascript:" URI. According to Favicon.com, a favicon is a customizable, multi-resolution image included on nearly all professionally developed sites.

An issue in the "_search target" function sites can use to open links in the Firefox sidebar. Two missing security checks allow malicious scripts to open a privileged page [such as about:config] then inject script using a "javascript:" URL. This could be used to install malicious code or steal data without user interaction.</>
