Transgendered Folks Encountering Document/Database ID Hassles

Golthar Re:Bigots who think this is a joke - shame on you! (814 comments)

Apple Criticized For Not Blocking Stolen Certs

Golthar Re:Not just Apple... (154 comments)

At the request of the Dutch government, Microsoft is delaying the update in the Netherlands (home of DigiNotar) until next week, to avoid confusion (and to buy the government more time to roll out new certs).

I feel much safer now, knowing our government has the power to stop Microsoft from rolling out security updates in a country.

I'm in the Netherlands and I got the patch just fine.

Schneier on Un-authentication

Golthar Re:Effective way to keep screens locked (336 comments)

Yes, we do that too at a bank I work for.
Even better is that the appointed AYIC officer for our office has been caught twice not locking his desktop.

And yes, it's easy to retaliate by forging email, but it loses it's effect in an IT environment.
