Blizzard Authenticators May Become Mandatory

Oxide The Authenticator is a good idea (248 comments)

I have been using Blizzard's Authenticator on my iPhone for a quite a while now and I'm very pleased with it. I can't imagine the devastation I would be in if my wow account got hijacked. I've spent days and nights developing my characters and It would be a huge loss if I lost them to some script kiddie.

The iPhone Authenticator is like you holding a physical key to your account. Good idea.

Favorite on-screen calculator?

Oxide KDE's Run Command (776 comments)

Simple and effective for quick calculations. Just press ALT+F2 and then instead of typing a command type your calculation string like: 12*3/2+2 and hit enter. WALAH... the answer is in the same run command. Can't beat that.

Kuwait sentences two men to jail for tweets crticizing ruler

Oxide Oxide writes  |  about a year and a half ago

Oxide (92607) writes "A Kuwaiti court sentenced a man to two years in prison on Monday for insulting the country's ruler on Twitter, his lawyer said, the second person to be jailed for the offense in as many days. The Gulf state has clamped down in recent months on political activists who have been using social media websites to criticize the government and the ruling family.

What's interesting is that the tweets in question did not mention the ruler directly but just indicated it might be him it is referring to."
