Submission + - XKCD 'Dream Girl' Meetup (

Fireflymantis writes: "In yet another example of Randall Munroe, author of the popular webcomic XKCD manipulating reality. A large meetup in boston was spurred today due to one of his comic strips which turned a small park in Boston into a bustling center of geekdom. Check out the photos and smile.

Everything went smooth, no velociraptor attacks occured (though there was one there, it seemed to be just want to dance), and it goes to show that sometimes wanting something actually can make it real."


Submission + - Thwart the Three Biggest Internet Threats (

Fireflymantis writes: "An interesting look at the three biggest Internet threats of 2007 and how to protect yourself from them. Presented by the MSN network, we find that the greatest web danger is nothing other than IE itself:

Internet Explorer heads the list of top Internet security attack targets in the most recent joint report of the FBI and security organization SANS Institute.
When recommending automatic updating to make IE and Windows safer, the MSN presented guide has this to say:

If you trust Microsoft implicitly, Download updates for me. Let me choose when to install them if you trust the company a little bit, or Notify me but don't automatically download or install them to play it safest.
Very interesting as it is on MSN, but openly makes hits against IE, ActiveX, and the integrity of Microsoft."
