From the article on TechCrunch I’ve learned about new book “The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company That Is Connecting the World” by David Kirckpatrick. They’ve posted two excerpts there and in one of them you can read: “In the first week of his sophomore year at Harvard, Mark Zuckerberg cobbled together an internet software program he called Course Match. The idea was to help students pick classes based on who else was taking them.
Today I’ve read article on Polish security portal Niebezpiecznik.pl about a guy who was searching for information about his debtor and accidentally found a file with list of over 1000 debtors of PKO BP (Polish bank), more here (unfortunately only in Polish). First he was accused that he obtained this file illegally by breaking into bank’s network, but police found no evidence for that and file was indeed indexed by search engines.
I was reading some stories today (as every day) and on some picture I saw Gerardo Medina as infant. From the title one can read that till the age of 10 he thought that girl (Lina Medina) next to him on this picture is his sister. But she was his mother, she gave him a birth when she was 5. Below is the picture I’ve found and you can learn more from article on Wikipedia.
Today is the great moment in history of this blog. I’ve added Facebook’s Like button (). Yes ladies and gentlemen from now on you can easily show which of my posts you like:P I must add that this button is here thanks to article of Mr. Ruhani Rabin. UPDATE: There is simpler way to have Like button on WordPress blog. You can use Simple Facebook Connect plug-in, I’ve added it and it works great, plus it has other functions not only Like button.
Today I’ve found funny picture where present president of USA Barrack Obama says (my own translation): “In the moment of such tragedy and such pain we all are Polish” Although I know what he meant, comment under the picture is still quite funny. Here is what it says: “We’re all Polish… but not all have visas” It’s old subject about Poland having big problem with US visas. I understand my nationals as US has no-visas traffic with smaller countries which sent a lot less army to help the US forces fight with terror.
I’ve seen Cop Out recently. I was really waiting to watch this movie, mostly because Kevin Smith has directed it. But also because of Mr. Bruce Willis, who, by the way, seems to be getting old a lot slower than other movie stars from his era. What can I say about this picture? Well, it was average. Average when comparing to other similar titles. But we’re talking about Kevin fucking Smith here, the man who brought us Clerks, Mallrats and Chasing Amy (yeah, I know that the last one is gay, but I really like this film).
I’ve read about new service provided by GameCrush which is opportunity to play online with real girl, so you can chat with her while enjoying your favorite title (only on Xbox360 right now), more here. You even can choose between “flirty” and “dirty” mode when playing with beauty, interesting. I’ve decide to check it out, but failed. There is so big interest in it that I’ve got this page instead:
I’m watching third season of Six Feet Under now. When I’ve started watching it I’ve felt weird. It wasn’t bad, but also nothing special. I haven’t felt like spending time on this series. Then, after few episodes, I’ve started to like it. Characters are deep, enough. Stories are normal, just life of average family, but have something inside. And the way it’s displayed on the screen is magnetic. So I’ve went smoothly through two seasons, end of second one was amazing BTW.
Looks like really every program can be harm to your computer these days. I’m reading US CERT reports regularly and yesterday I’ve read this one. Long story short software included with the Energizer DUO USB battery charger contains a backdoor that allows unauthorized remote system access. It’s very serious as attacker can gain complete access to machine (however with privileges of currently logged user, so if you’re not using admin account all the time it’s not so serious, but how many Windows users do that).
