Re: 1353: "Heartbleed"

The third Google result for heartbleed is a testing service. The sixth is this comic. What do you have to do? Google, Facebook etc are secure, but if you used the same password on them as on a small site that's vulnerable, you're wide open. Supposedly, Google is actually only secure now . It was ac...

Re: 1269: "Privacy Opinions"

I'm somewhere between the last three panels (not gunna eat strawberries in a sexy way for all to see, but I *may* eat a burrito while searching for some really weird combinations of things, etc) However, I've recently picked up a little of the conspiracist. My mom was given a computer from work - a ...

Re: 1065: "Shoes"

kids and Scottish people lol It's true! We'd been told (by the British people we were staying with) that British people, especially in London, just DON'T talk to you, DON'T look at you, etc... unless you're doing something weird; in which case they stare at you but would still never dream of saying...

Re: 1065: "Shoes"

I just got myself a new pair last night (and I hadn't read XKCD yet!), only to later look down at my husband's feet and notice he'd just ripped the toe off of his XD We've both been using them for a couple years now, including on our trip to England. Boy did we ever get some stares and edging away o...

Re: 1053: “Ten Thousand”

One of my coworkers - who grew up in a beach house in Florida, is an avid surfer, whose stepdad is a geologist (and we work at said stepdad's geology/environmental engineering firm), and has graduated college - didn't know where seashells came from. Seriously. I stared at her when she asked, unable ...

Re: 0913: "Core"

I work for a geologist. He doesn't do that, or really anything other than blather on about politics and how rich he is (needless to say, his politics are NOT what you'd expect a scientist running an environmental firm to have). I think I'm more excited about geology than he, and I'm just a lowly CAD...

Re: "Forks and Spoons" Discussion

So, I've been reading for... quite some time now. Imagine my surprise reading today's comic and going 'holy crap! It's me!' So of course, I had to join, just to do the 'Wow! It's like he lives inside my head!' cliché. *ahem* Wow! It's like he's inside my head! I've had the nickname spoonyspork since...
