+ - rubyonrails.org squatted->

Submitted by tck44
tck44 (1399467) writes "According to a tweet [ http://twitter.com/dhh/statuses/12538753566 ] from Ruby on Rails' creator, David Heinemeier Hansson, http://www.rubyonrails.org/ was paid up but its registrar allowed it to lapse anyway. Unfortunately, it was quickly scooped up by domain squatters and now hosts only the typical ad page that one sees everywhere. WHOIS information for the domain reveals that it was reregistered yesterday [ http://www.whois.net/whois/rubyonrails.org ]. Meanwhile, users can still use http://rubyonrails.com/ and DHH claims that the situation will be resolved by the registrar."

The best part of this story... "Officers discovered the computer would no longer turn on but a year later police forensic experts recovered 64 images of cartoon child exploitation material in the machine’s recycle bin." So, it took officers a year to mount the hard drive in another system, and take a look in the recycle bin.

+ - Girl electrocuted and dies tweeting in the tub-> 3

Jeff Shantz writes "A 17 year old Romanian girl is dead after being electrocuted while tweeting in the bath tub. Apparently, she plugged in her laptop after her battery started to die, and it is unclear as to whether or not she dropped the laptop in the water, or simply dripped enough water on the device to cause the shock. Needless to say, it is probably good advice not to tweet in the tub."
