Is Algeria Deleting Facebook Accounts?

Brian Blessed Re:Unencrypted cookie auths (217 comments)

The problem is that ridiculously entrenched tin-pot dictators continue to believe that they can control to populous like they did in the pre-Internet days when all you had to do was shut down a few newspapers and "disappear" their enemies.

Enemies like Julian Assange? Despite not yet managing to disappear him, the US has had some success in controlling the bulk of the population to view him as an evil figure.

Red Hat Sued Over Hibernate ORM Patent Claim

Brian Blessed TFA seems confused (170 comments)

It says:

The complaint centers around JBoss 3

JBoss 3 was released in May 2002.
However, Hibernate wasn't a JBoss project until September 2003.

I'd guess that the claim relates to Hibernate 3, but they are desperate to mention JBoss as much as possible for the FUD value.
