Good summary of the “competing” HTML/XHTML “standards”. There’s the engineering side of my brain that loves the ‘you have to close every tag’ tidyness of XHTML, but let’s face it, the pragmatic reverse-engineered-tag-soup approach of HTML5 is going to win this one.
Back in the third year of my CompSci degree, there was a class that was around personal development and teamwork — presumably to help tweak out the Asbergery tendencies of CompSci students — and part of it was the Johari Window (which I largely remember because its name comes from the fact that its inventors were Joe and Harry). If you know me, go pick five or six adjectives to describe me, and see how self-aware I really am.
Those anti-phishing “pick a photo and a phrase that must be displayed when you login to your bank” systems? Work-aroundable by smart-enough phishers. Wonder where the arms race goes next?
WEEI and ESPN Radio were both handing out Japanese signs for the crowd to hold up. No idea what they say, though. (Outside the park after the game, the Sully's Tees folks were selling shirts that said "YANKEES SUCK" in Japanese. Some things are universal)
I love this billboard on the Mass Pike. It's for Bank of America who are the "official" bank of the Red Sox.
It's designed to resemble the manual scoreboard on the Green Monster, and says "Official Sponsor of" before being completed by topical slogans, which change about once a week.
Today, it reads "Official Sponsor of The Gyroball". Prior to Opening Day, it was "Official Sponsor of Best Day of the Year", and before yesterday's Home Opener it read "Tuesday Homecomings".
Makes me smile every time I see it, even if Bank of America are evil incompetent buffoons who I wouldn't bank with if you paid me.
