p>However, if you need to train your mind for facing Cthulhu, then 4chan is a good place to start.

I don't think looking at tentacle porn can be considered "training your mind for facing Cthulu".

TSA Nominee's Snooping Raises Privacy Concerns

PK Tech Guy Re:Learned from his mistakes? (134 comments)

IANAL but TFA states illegally accessing records is a misdemeanor not a felony. Perjury is generally a felony, but proving his original statement were lies and not mistaken recollections of 20 yr old events might be difficult.

Hackers Broke Into FAA Air Traffic Control Systems

PK Tech Guy Missing Forest for the Trees? (124 comments)

from the CNET article "Last year, hackers took control of FAA critical network servers and could have shut them down, which would have seriously disrupted the agency's mission-support network, the report said"

"However, Brown dismissed the notion that hackers could get access to critical air traffic control operational systems."

It's OK everybody, the hacker's have shut down the network but they havent gained any critical access.

"How Facebook Was Founded" and EMail Hacking

PK Tech Guy PK Tech Guy writes  |  more than 4 years ago

PK Tech Guy (1310715) writes "Nicholas Carlson of Business Insider.com has a story on the lawsuit filed against Marc Zuckerberg by 3 Harvard seniors for theft and fraud over the creation of Facebook. Skipping to the end, Carlson posits:
"Bottom line, we haven't seen anything that makes us think that, whatever Mark did to the Harvard Connection folks, it was worth more than the $65 million they received in the lawsuit settlement. In fact, this seems like a huge sum of money considering that the entire dispute took place over two months in 2004 and that, in the six years since, Mark has built Facebook into a massive global enterprise."

Then Carlson drops an interesting bit about Zuckerberg and hacking:
"that said, in the course of our investigation, we also uncovered two additional anecdotes about Mark's behavior in Facebook's early days that are more troubling. These episodes — an apparent hacking into the email accounts of Harvard Crimson editors using data obtained from Facebook logins, as well as a later hacking into ConnectU — are described in detail here"(links below)
