OpenID Again

Well I've upgraded to a later version of Drupal and this version conveniently has a nice third party module to support OpenID. That's good because the provider I used originally seems to have dropped off the face of the earth. Now I can use my website as my OpenID and have the whole thing handled by VeriSign. Yea!

Apple's iPhone OS 2.0

Well one year into the iPhone era. Millions have been sold and now the next generation is cheaper and better. The issues that enterprises were unhappy about seem to have evaporated in this new version of the phone. Software developers finally have an API that can be used to write more than a simple widget and a store to sell and download their applications into people's phones. GPS has been added. All that seems to be missing is a video camera function and voice dialing.

I Told You So

Well it looks like "Kato" Kaelin has competition for the lowest form of bipedal life. Unfortunately, this guy has reproduced, which puts him out of the running for the Darwin awards. Sad to think that he will be entrusted with a child's welfare. Let's face it, it is all about the money. My favorite comment was heard on (Fox?) news where the newscaster said "anyone could be the father". That's right, everyone has had sex with Anna Nicole. 

OpenID

OpenID looks like something worth investigating. I have signed up for a free OpenID with Videntity, and I will use their server to make this website function as my own personal OpenID. There is a Drupal module under development (but not yet upgraded to 5.1) so I hope that my site will become OpenID enabled in the near future.

BS blogs moved!

The website has been installed on a new server. Instead of just copying it over I rebuilt the website with more CSS and no tables. If there is anyone out there who reads this stuff, please bear with me as the posts were copied over one by one. Most comments are gone and trackbacks are not (yet) implemented. And I'll post some new entries soon, of course.

Mac OS X Security Challenge

Recently there has been a lot of news about the security of Mac OS X. A lot of the press would like to sell the idea that the Mac isn't fundamentally any more secure than any other operating system (read Windows). The reasoning is based upon popularity. Surely the less popular operating system has fewer problems because it naturally has fewer attackers.
