The Spam Thread!
Well, Windows 8.1 is out. May as well upgrade tonight......

Oh, and Windows XP is dead.

Right now, Busy as a beaver. On one end, I need to field an application for a job at a local dollar store... on the other end, I have to clear off my Dish DVR to make room for all the C&L episodes, the stories of Little Nutbrown Hare, and to possibly sample 3rd and Bird.


Oh, and Greta is my music PC now. It's thanks to Doris, my awesome new Cassette player radio thing.
Named after Doris the Duck from 64 Zoo Lane, for those wondering.

Doris is also responsible for helping Audrey in the conversion of old audio cassettes to MP3 format via Adobe Audition.

I just thought of another thing.... remember how licensed characters had storybook cassettes back in the 80s? Now I can convert them, especially if there are any from the 80s incarnation of SSC. I did have a storybook record from 80s SSC, but the record broke before I could convert it. Sad

In my case, I had to use a TRRS-to-RCA cable when I plugged in my PC to a stereo/component tape deck. It was lulz, especially as I could record my MP3s to a blank cassette.

I can do the same myself. Greta's audio output is sent through Doris' AUX input, and the cassette deck can record from that input. I plan on doing the MP3 (or whatever digital format) to cassette thing myself, for lulz, and also because I still like old antiquated audio formats somewhat. Tongue

BTW, forgot about what kind of stereo Doris is.

Sharp CD-BA150, released in 1999 or 2000. I found her at a local Rummage Sale, in brilliant condition. Only issues are that the CD player doesn't work and there is no remote. For one, I hardly listen to physical CDs anymore, so the non-functional CD player is no biggie. I can also source a remote from eBay as well, but that may have to wait a while.

Someone please explain about the recent Heartbleed issue. Do I need to change password on every single site I have an account on?

This article should be simple enough to understand. As for changing your passwords, I would play it safe and change them all, as you don't really know if all the sites you use have the bugged OpenSSL or not outside of the ones that they announced.

It's also worth noting that security researchers found the bug and exposed it, not through an attack by criminals. However, that doesn't mean criminals have been using the bug or didn't know about it beforehand, thus everyone worrying about their passwords and such.

I would think so.
The Best Medicine > Magic. Because SCIENCE! can prove the former.

If the short comic is correct at explaining the heartbleed bug, doesn't that mean the people who changed their passwords recently or more frequently are the ones who are at higher risk?

Heartbleed Bug is very confusing, even to me. I did have a link to a good article that explains the Heartbleed Bug in easy-to-understand detail, but I lost it at the moment. Sad

I still have yet to change my passwords. Sad Sad

And PB&J Otter does not exist on Disney Junior anymore. Sad Sad Sad








Ah well.
