Stack Overflow is a Q&A archive, not a personal debugging helpdesk. Your question is expected to contribute to the knowledge of humanity by being useful for someone else at some later date.

Upvotes are not for "correcting" downvotes. It is not your job to take away somebody else's right to vote. Only upvote if you thought that it was a great question/answer, not because you disagreed with somebody else's downvote.

I will not work for you if you or your recruiter requires CVs to be presented in Microsoft Word format.

comment This JavaScript code is injected on my hotel Wi-Fi: should I be worried?
@ignis: That's ridiculous. Sure, we already know that an untrusted network is untrusted in the general case, but why should that prevent us from being able to ask specifics about a specific network's behaviour?

comment Is all data sent over SSH encrypted?
@IQAndreas: Your login key is not the same as the server's SSH key. No matter how you login, the SSH session has already been established.

@Nick: It's an analogy. Without technical detail. As requested. If you want the technical details then they are available all over the internet.

Yeah, this is a great explanation of Heartbleed, but not for a layperson.

comment Can anyone provide references for implementing web application self password reset mechanisms properly?
@AndrzejBobak: Two values are equally as easy to break through brute-force as one value double the length of either.

comment If I visit a HTTPS website when using Tor, is my IP exposed?
@Boogy: It did not sufficiently answer the question, which argues that HTTPS, being end-to-end/user-to-service, could prevent Tor from performing magic to mask your IP. The answer is that the Tor magic doesn't work this way, and the secure connection here is not really user-to-service.
