Links from 2012-04-15 is a less than 200 lines of Python code to demonstrate the danger of password reuse

The grid below illustrates the list of Twitter accounts (passwords intentionally removed - if we didn’t, anyone viewing this page will be able to login into any of the accounts below!) that was able to login to using email/password combinations from the leaks described in our disclosures. We have listed only those accounts that have at least 1000 followers to reduce the load time of this page. But this just shows how easy it is for anyone to pick a list of email/password combinations and programmatically attempt to use them to login into other popular sites and these may include your email accounts on Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail.

Don’t docwrite scripts | High Performance Web Sites

In yesterday’s blog post, Making the HTTP Archive faster, one of the biggest speedups came from not using a script loader. It turns out that script loader was using document.write to load scripts dynamically. I wrote about the document.write technique in Loading Script Without Blocking back in April 2009, as well as in Even Faster Web Sites (chapter 4). The problem with document.write for script loading is: Every DOM element below the inserted script is blocked from rendering until the script is done downloading (example). It blocks other dynamic scripts (example). One exception is if multiple scripts are inserted using document.write within the same SCRIPT block (example).

Ich heb dann mal ur | Spreeblick

Wir geben jeden einzelnen Tag Geld für Unterhaltungsinhalte aus und ich bin es verdammt noch mal leid, mir dauernd vorwerfen zu lassen, ich würde Urheber nicht respektieren, während ich selbst einer bin. Nur eben einer, der nicht rumheult wegen des Internet, sondern anders Geld mit seiner Arbeit verdient als vor 20 Jahren. Insert Bob Dylan quote here. … Und wenn ich eine englischsprachige TV-Serie oder einen Film wegen bekloppter und überholter Regionsabkommen nicht legal bekomme, dann dauert es trotzdem keine halbe Stunde, bis ich ihn habe, und DAS, liebe Industrie und liebe Leistungsschutzrecht-Journalisten, ist nichts anderes als völlig grandios und daraus wäre ein so unfassbar großes Geschäft zu machen, denn nicht nur ich würde dafür bezahlen (und tue das an den Stellen, an denen es möglich ist bereits), … Ich WILL den Urhebern und Produzenten der Inhalte, die ich mag, mein Geld geben, denn sie haben es verdient.
