Breitbart News "censored" itself in protest of the sacking of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich over gay rights issues. Because of course they did. Their point? “Firefox is now a company that censors.”
Firefox isn’t a company.

Poor Mickey Rooney: Despite his massive fame, he died nearly broke

  • $18k the size of iconic actor Mickey Rooney’s estate upon his death over the weekend. Rooney, who won an Honorary Academy Award “in recognition of his 50 years of versatility in a variety of memorable film performances” three decades ago, had fallen on somewhat hard times, with one of his final film roles being a 2012 documentary that exposed how he had been manipulated by his own stepson. Rooney, who will star in the upcoming “Night at the Museum 3” according to that film’s director, left his full estate to another stepson who took care of him during his twilight years. source

Star Trek’s Kate Mulgrew says she was tricked into narrating film that argues the Sun revolves around Earth. On the other hand, it does offer explanation for why the vessel of Star Trek: Voyager became so irrevocably stranded.

TIL Janeway is in Orange is the New Black. 

There’s a great paragraph in this:

However, one of those physicists, Lawrence Krauss, has already come forward to say he has no idea how he ended up in this stupid Geocentrism documentary. In his Slate article, titled “I Have No Idea How I Ended Up In That Stupid Geocentrism Documentary,” Krauss claims that producers must have taken clips of him that were in the public domain, purchased the rights to them from some other production company, or simply deceived him as to what their project was about—a misrepresentation that he sees no need to sue over, lest it “elevate the profile of something that shouldn’t even rise to the level of popular discussion.” Unfortunately, Captain Janeway is in it, so here we are.

It’s a serious bug in that it doesn’t leave any trace. Bad guys can access the memory on a machine and take encryption keys, usernames, passwords, valuable intellectual property, and there’s no trace they’ve been there.
Codenomicon CEO David Chartier • Discussing the nature of the “Heartbleed” vulnerability, a security hole located in SSL services that allowed people with not-so-nice purposes to tap into data meant to be secure. How big of a deal is it? Let’s put it this way: You know how your web addresses sometimes say “https” instead of “http,” and how that’s meant to ensure your data is encrypted? That, friends, is what we’re talking about.

So Wikipedia redesigned last week, but you’d never notice on your own because all they did was barely change the fonts (old version above; new version below). Why didn’t they go much further than that? Because EVERYONE WOULD NOT STOP COMPLAINING.
