MD Judge Strikes Down Gay-Marriage Ban!

All the recent news about subdomain hack-protection, now summarized in amusing quick statements:
Malicious Security Crackers: "We used to take an account and try out about 40,000 passwords on it in about 5 seconds to see if it would unlock. LJ doesn't let us do that anymore. Damn that LJ! We'll show them! Here, have a malicious script!"
Malicious script: *takes 5 most commonly used passwords, tries them on 40,000 different accounts*
4000 LJ accounts: *unlock*
Malicious Security Crackers: "Score!"
LJ Geeks: "O RLY."
LJ: *stops allowing even remotely easy passwords*
4000 LJ users: "Hey! That was a perfectly good password! Why'd you make me change it?"
LJ Support: *facepalm*

LJ Geeks: *write more code*
LJ Admin: "Release the code!" *pokes server*
LJ Server: *falls over* "Error 500! Ow!" *can't get up*
LJ Admin: *blush*
LJ Addicts: "OMG ERROR 500!!"
LJ Support: "We know."

Bantown Crackers: "Hey, cool security flaws in Javascript, IE, and Firefox!"
Security Flaws: "How are you gentlemen?!"
LJ: "What happen?"
Bantown Crackers: "All your base are belong to us."
LJ Admin: "Subdomains for everybody! Fuck off, craxx0rbitches."
Free Users: "Yaaaay!"
Paid Users: "...no fair. Like we ever use voice post."
Permanent Users: "STFU, n00bs."
LJ Admin: "What they said. Suck it. Security reasons. Plenty of other sites out there."
Early Adopters: "Where's the LOVE?"
</a></a>brad:</b> "STFU, n00bs."
[info]_____xo_so_em0_x_xx_____: "MY UNDERSCORES! WTF!"
LJ Support: "You got a rename token, so suck it."
[info]so__________gratuitous_x_x_x: "WTF? They got a free rename token and I didn't?"
LJ Support: "It's called restrictions on what subdomains can be named. Your username still works. Deal."
[info]so__________gratuitous_x_x_x: "OMG THE HYPHENS!"
</a></a>note_to_cat maintainer volunteering in Support:</b> "Suck it."

Bantown Crackers: "We still got cookies, yo."
LJ Admins: "Oh no you don't."
All login cookies: *expire*
Bantown Crackers: "Well, fuck. Eh, more suckers to hack out there."
All previously logged-in users: "WTF? We're logged out!"
LJ Support: "Big frickin' deal. Log in again. Duh."

The half of LJ that wasn't paying attention: "...Dude. What did they do with the passwords and URLs and shit? How come I got logged out? Somebody? Anybody? Bueller?"
LJ Support: "OMG HEADACHE."</div>

For the geek inclined, an article/page on Mac's firmware system (equiv to PC BIOS)

...Again, yes, I'll post more about my actual life/current state of being at some near point in the future. Hopefully. I doubt people are actually curious anyhow, but I still need to record what's going on. Somewhat. Brief highlights include Job seeking (one interview, one opportunity missed.), T.I.S. work for 4 hours a day (and developing creative ways to tell the customer, "I don't know."), First week of classes (and several letters warning me of my current class selection)

Local copy? Does that mean a live performance?
ibneko From: ibneko Date: January 22nd, 2006 05:04 am (UTC) (Link)
No, it just means that it's a local files that I have on my hard drive, because iTunes is stupid and doesn't support searching for files that are (or aren't) local, and I have a stuff on DVD and external hard drives.

But yes, I have copies of his live performances (Including Live at El Ray and Superhero, which is also a live recording). I picked them up, as part of his discography... mmm, relatively recently. You want?
crowbaress From: crowbaress Date: January 22nd, 2006 05:10 am (UTC) (Link)
I have Superhero but not Live at El Ray (Isn't that a DVD?)

I've been trying to track down his new CD - The Craig Machine, but so far I only have a few tracks.

Dirty, dirty man. But so damn funny.
ibneko From: ibneko Date: January 22nd, 2006 05:31 am (UTC) (Link)
Honestly, I don't know. The site I get them from doesn't post any video (strictly forbidden).

Got The Graig Machine. Dropping it onto yousendit... er, probably tonight.

But yes, so damn funny~

Hm, ok, found torrents to DVD copies and DVD to avi rips.. will try to download them all~ although I think $10 on amazon would be worth it... We'll see..

Hehe, you're welcomes.

Why would you get letters warning you about your classes? Are they that awful?
ibneko From: ibneko Date: January 23rd, 2006 01:45 am (UTC) (Link)
Just that the workload is expected to be a bit rather tough, and my grades from last semester weren't that pretty, so it's a warning that.. I should do something else instead, but I think there's a pretty good chance that even if I do take a gen-ed class, I'd do just as badly, 'cause gen-ed classes tend to be more memorization-based, which I suck even more at. -.-;;

ok.... yay MD...?

Haha. Victor "officially banned [me] from making anymore faces" after I screwed up this smiley ^_^ and made it into ^_6. hahahaha. He's a fun kid. I ought to get him to come over to our house sometime in the summer =D
... He thinks he's not being a good brother. Says a good brother ought to be watching out for his other siblings (esp. the younger ones) all the time.... which I don't think is true according to our relationship. haha. Anyways, I'm cold. Isn't that nice to know? =DD

Just for future reference, leaving completely unrelated comments will not get you any replies. Post stuff like this in your own journal - that's what it's there for.
