Almost forgot

Almost forgot: yesterday marks exactly one month since my accident. Still on crutches, still on heparin, paracetamol, mefenamic acid and pantoprazole.
Never felt the sentence: “one month I’ll never get back” so true than today.
All the more reason to do the things I wanted to do before it’s too late (read: before I’m too old).

Funniest comment

On the Diginotar-breach debacle, on slashdot:

Personally, the breach leaves me a bit speech- and helpless.
Currently, there does not seem to be an easy solution to the problem.
In theory, we can’t just shrug it all off and continue the SSL-Certificate security-theatre like we used to do in the past.
In practice, we lack a scalable alternative. Also lacking are educated users.
In fact, the only reliable factor in the SSL-Certificate circus seems to be the ignorance and stupidity of users who click and accept any modal dialog that opens on the screen.
