URLs du Jour (and a Joke)


Argh, I think I overdosed on politics. Some Obama-free content for you today:

  • I previously mentioned Hard Case Crime and its delightfully retro covers. Browsing through their website, I found this upcoming title by a promising writer.

    I already own a … more sedate version of the novel. But this is mighty tempting.

  • Adrian Beltre is coming to the Boston Red Sox. Read this story from Surviving Grady and try to pick the place where I started laughing. (This shouldn't be hard, if you remember that my sense of humor is about the same, maturity-wise, as when I was nine years old.)

  • A co-worker (who blogs here) passes along the following computer security joke:
    During a recent password audit at a company, it was found that a [person presumed to be stupid regardless of hair color] was using the following password: "MickeyMinniePlutoHueyLouieDeweyDonaldGoofySacramento"

    When asked why she had such a long password, she said she was told that it had to be at least eight characters long and include at least one capital.

  • Ever wonder how a web design goes straight to Hell? To find out, I suggest reading How a Web Design Goes Straight to Hell.
