Looking at the Wikipedia page, the two EOL'd environments that stand out are:

- Android browser on Gingerbread (and older) - hopefully this'll be solved soon, Gingerbread is finally disappearing but it's taken a while.
- Internet Explorer on Windows XP.

Everything else seems to be the kind of environment where if you're still using a browser that cannot support SNI then you're probably running into all kinds of problems anyway.

(I would like to think that Windows XP users are using Firefox these days, but...)

Question: aren't there privacy issues associated with SNI? shows no attempt to munge the server name. So even though a third party might not be able to determine what content you're trying to access, they probably can intercept - albeit with the victim experiencing an interuption in service - the hostname and determine whose content you're trying to view.

Goddammit, if I weren't already ideologically minded, I would despise conservatives for their crimes against the english language.

When the best you can manage is passive-aggressive solipsism and intentionally petrified bawdy humour, PUT THE KEYBOARD DOWN.

Another fucking coder thinks the right side of his brain is worth a damn...

GM does major weapons systems contracting.

GM built the engines for Grumman aircraft, and won a good deal of the Pacific theatre in 41-45.
GM provided the industrial manufacturing capability to produce the M16 A1 variant for southeast Asia.

Look who's talking.
Somebody from a 'Killer Brand'.

Guy from GM - one of the most heavily subsidized corporations in the HISTORY of CAPITALISM has something to say about building a business and a "brand"?

Donald Trump has good advice on how to be born rich, and pretend you are a financial wizard, too.

Kinda. With "Mark 2" it becomes considerably more difficult, as you have to find a way to set an environment variable to the same name as a command that'll be executed - at least, from the proof of concept exploits I'm seeing. So even if a badly configured webserver sets HTTP_HOST to "() { wget ; chmod +x; ./; }", unless your script actually tries to run a program called HTTP_HOST it shouldn't be called.

(If I'm wrong, expecting angry flames now ;-) Please though include details of why.)


Scientists Seen As Competent But Not Trusted By Americans 420

cold fjord writes The Woodrow Wilson School reports, "If scientists want the public to trust their research suggestions, they may want to appear a bit 'warmer,' according to a new review published by Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. The review, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), shows that while Americans view scientists as competent, they are not entirely trusted. This may be because they are not perceived to be friendly or warm. In particular, Americans seem wary of researchers seeking grant funding and do not trust scientists pushing persuasive agendas. Instead, the public leans toward impartiality. 'Scientists have earned the respect of Americans but not necessarily their trust,' said lead author Susan Fiske, the Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology and professor of public affairs. 'But this gap can be filled by showing concern for humanity and the environment. Rather than persuading, scientists may better serve citizens by discussing, teaching and sharing information to convey trustworthy intentions.'"

Exxon and Russian Operation Discovers Oil Field Larger Than the Gulf of Mexico 197

An anonymous reader writes The state-run OAO Rosneft has discovered a vast pool of crude in the Kara Sea region of the Arctic Ocean, arguably bigger than the Gulf of Mexico. From the article: "The discovery sharpens the dispute between Russia and the U.S. over President Vladimir Putin’s actions in Ukraine. The well was drilled before the Oct. 10 deadline Exxon was granted by the U.S. government under sanctions barring American companies from working in Russia’s Arctic offshore. Rosneft and Exxon won’t be able to do more drilling, putting the exploration and development of the area on hold despite the find announced today."

System checkpoint complete.
