The Geekiest World Record Ever?


Mozilla is having people pledge to download its latest version of the wildly popular browser, Firefox, that will be released in mid June, they are asking people to support "download day" so, since I love my Firefox I am, and you should too.

Firefox is widely touted as being faster, safer, and more secure than Microsoft's IE, and Opera. I have to say i agree, i use a ton of extensions that improve the convenience and usability of just about every website that you visit
Not like any one actually reads this but... Mozilla is having people pledge to download its latest version of the wildly popular browser, Firefox, that will be released in mid June, they are asking people to support "download day" so, since I love my Firefox I am, and you should too.

The Yubikey Via Security Now! 143


I just got done Listening to the latest Security Now! with Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte. The Yubikey sounds amazing. It is produced by Yubico. They are a start up company that is trying to improve the security dongle industry. The Yubikey is a small dongle that will fit on your key chain. The computer recognizes it as a USB keyboard, it generates a OTP (one time password) that can be authenticated via the Yubico server or one you can run your own. I have been using the Yubico server since they have a plethora of applications that have chosen to integrate a Yubikey login procedure. I am still waiting for mine to arrive as it is back ordered, no doubt since it was mentioned on SN.
