Software engineer. I write telecoms software in C by day, write Python and hack around with shell scripts when nobody's looking, and still play with Haskell by night.

I take LARP too seriously, have been an Android fanboy since my Dev Phone 1, and still use IRC.

Next question?

comment Apparently PayPal-affiliated site with very suspect security
I very much doubt that PayPal will be paying the full $3000 off-the-shelf price for that certificate. They'll get discounts because they buy lots, and discounts because they have a lot more clout to negotiate. And even if they did, I wouldn't assume PayPal think $3000 is a significant amount of money.

comment How can I identify my phone call is being tracked or tapped?
@kunle: source? From what I know about smartphones, that seems exceedingly dubious.

comment Does naming sensitive things discreetly provide protection?
+1 for noting the risk of confused developers further down the line misunderstanding the need to handle security sensibly.

comment Reminder: Reset your password - phishing or genuine Facebook email?
"Never"? Not even if I've legitimately forgotten my password, and was expecting the reset email?
