book meme

When a MySpace user visited Samy's page, that user would execute the attack code.

From"Hacking Exposed Web 2.0" by Rich Cannings, Himanshu Dwivedi, ZaneLackey

  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open it to page 56.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

powell endorses obama

i was just chatting with my dad the other day, about why it is taking so long for colin powell to endorse obama.

the wait was worth it though:

“He has both style and substance,” Mr. Powell said, speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” He added, “Obama has displayed a steadiness; showed intellectual vigor. He has a definitive way of doing business that will do us well.”

“I think that Senator Obama brings a fresh set of eyes, fresh set of ideas to the table. I think that Senator McCain, as gifted as he is, is essentially going to execute the Republican agenda, the orthodoxy of the Republican agenda with a new face and a maverick approach to it, and he’d be quite good at it, but i think we need more than that.”

Mr. Powell told the reporters outside the studio that he still considers himself a Republican, despite his decision to vote for Mr. Obama.

Randy Moss' agent on why he resigned with the Patriots:

"Oftentimes, when people judge whether a contract is a success, they look at how much it's worth. But there is more to life than just pure money," DiPiero said, according to The Globe. "In this case, Randy experienced some intangibles during the year, from his friendships, to his relationship with the coaching staff and others in the organization. Those intangibles had some value here."

"I think Randy saw that he was in a great situation. Sure, he could have made more money, if that was his only consideration. I think he's more mature now. So once we were able to work out some details, we got it done. We weren't going back and forth trying to play games with the Patriots. The negotiations were done in good faith,"

"I think Randy and coach [Bill] Belichick developed a mutual respect that is kind of neat,"

Yep. Can relate to that.
