Justice and reason are on the side of the couple, but this is South Carolina, where justice and reason don't often count for much. http://www.thestate.com/2013/09/03/2958262/same-sex-marriage-suit-haley-likely.html

Gradually building up working environment based on Debian stable on my Nexus 7. Got ratpoison and emacs23 working; got package.el and melpa installed for emacs23. Becoming usable.
- “Lest we forget at least an over the shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins - or which is which), the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom - Lucifer.”

I'm not sure why Chrome storing passwords in plaintext is making the round of the news right now. It was reported as a bug in 2008 and marked “WONTFIX” in 2010.
I understand the Chrome devs' point about leaving security up to the OS, but on Linux they just punt and don't encrypt at all (compare Windows where they encrypt in a way that's probably safe (only) for logged out users). If they can't be bothered to do the minimum here, where else are they cutting corners?he is right in sense encryption or master password means false security you plugged one end but others are open so users believe they are safe when actually they aren't he is wrong, when he says we don't want to plug it because there are other ways to get access, he's right when saying master passwd is not the way to do it, devise newer, safer ways to encrypt, twitter's 2-factor security is a good example. while encryption means machine, master password means high order of error, and locking self out

Nice quote from @cstross about royal crotchfruit: “Amiable couple distantly descended from red-handed mass-murdering hereditary dictator who invaded nation in 1066 succeed in repeating a process that every last one of their ancestors managed to accomplish (i.e. producing a child). News media feeding frenzy ensues …”
