damn you, target…clever hackers

so i mentioned my credit card info was hijacked…apparently those who shopped at target, some 40 million plus, had their card information lifted…and i went black friday shopping at target. crap.

target confirms point-of-sale breach

it’s a pain in the ass to have to cancel your card and then await another card. now i have to go inside the bank for money. inconvenient, yes, but not the end of the world.

but what about the hack? seriously, this is like a train carrying gold…the timing of these guys, the influx of credit cards being used. talk about a haul. hats off to those hackers. shame on target for not being more security-aware during one of the biggest credit card seasons of the year.

can you lend me a hand…or a finger?


sometimes reading comments to an article are way more interesting than the article itself.

i got a good chuckle out of this article: no, a severed finger will not be able to access a stolen iphone 5s

first of all, this is a legitimate concern i guess. although i’m not sure i’d trust my fingerprint security to some vendor, so it’s most likely a feature i’d never use.

but the comments regarding this article are kind of funny…haha…here’s a few:

-there’s reference to a ‘freshly chopped finger’ and that it could successfully unlock the phone

-trying to convince your kidnapper that severing your finger will not work…didn’t you read the article?!

-if it works off heat detection, heating the finger up in the microwave

-and this classic spin and twist: “so… if a thief attempts to access my stolen iphone, their finger will be severed, correct?”


i suggest that if your fingerprints are stolen, maybe apple can offer you replacement fingerprints through some sort of ifinger device 🙂


soylent…say what?!


perusing through my nerd news, offered by ars technica, i ran across this article on soylent. i started reading it and besides being funny, it’s quite interesting. i’m looking forward to reading more of the author’s upcoming days while on soylent.

i first had to google soylent to find out more. soylent is a ‘food substitute’…which is crazy. can you imagine blending some powder together with water and that being your entire meal plan for the day?!? definitely not for me. i gotta have a tasty meal, outside of my smoothies, to put the ol’ taste buds to work 🙂



test…looks like the image upload from the wordpress app was stripping some html so the images wouldn’t display properly. found a plugin fix and now it’s fixed 🙂 #nerdnation

public restrooms


public restrooms can have some cheap toilet paper. one-ply, thin, or rough, it can be down right horrible. it’s also a good indicator of how the business cares about you as the customer or employee. sure in the end it’s all about cost, but a lil comfort for a few pennies more isn’t that far fetched.
