Matt told me to cross post this when I went live with this story. Earlier this evening, I released the details of a cross site scripting exploit in the super popular Democracy 1.2 plugin. Read about the exploit here.
Yesterday I watched the CTV news; just to see what was happening in the world thru the eyes of one of Canada’s largest TV broadcasters. The one thing that struck me funny was the US building a ten meter high fence along the longest undefended border in the world. I became really quiet and sad as I listened and watched. It appeared surreal to me. It still feels that way. I feel like Canada did something wrong, like the US doesn’t like us anymore.
How can this be happening between two beautfiul and great Countries. The fence will begin in British Columbia stretching all the way though to parts of Ontario beginning again in areas of the New Brunswick / Maine border. I feel kind of choked-up. I haven’t been able to get this off of my mind. I have actually shed tears about this and still am.
WordPress just broke a new record having served up over a million downloads. The number will undoubtedly continue to exponentially grow and I congratulate the developers for their hard work and persistance.
Other bloggers talking about this milestone:
More to come as I find them.
Forgive me if this is old news. It appears the first bloggers started writing about it four days ago. It’s news to me, though. The long awaited breakdown of barriers between IM clients appears to have come and gone without much of a peep. The latest build of Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live Messenger (MSN) have been released and with them, the interoperabilty wall has fallen.
I’m not really a Yahoo or Windows Live Messenger user. I have accounts for both and used MSN much more in the past but for now, I’m a Skype man. Nonetheless, the fact that Yahoo Messenger and WLM both work together now is somewhat of a coup for interactive collaboration fans everywhere.
I have not really used the interoperability much so welcome feedback on the feature is encouraged in the comments.
