Common sense… or the lack thereof.

So walking in this morning from the bus station to my office, I see a couple workers on the 16th St mall area standing by a running truck, one on the phone, one smoking a cigarette… both keep looking under the truck and discussing. I walk by and glance over to see what they’re looking at and notice what appears to be gas dripping from the tank under the rear of the vehicle. Again, I notice one of them is smoking… I hurried myself along.

Epic Fail Sony… EPIC FAIL.

by on Apr.26, 2011, under Humor, Tech Stuff

All I can do is shake my head… really? I’m soooooo glad I don’t use PSN. What a bummer for those “70 million subscribers”….

(CNN) — A hacker has obtained the personal information of PlayStation Network account holders and subscribers of the Qriocity streaming service, Sony said in a message to customers Tuesday.

Sony’s investigations over the past week determined that an “unauthorized person” had obtained users’ names, home addresses, e-mail addresses, birth dates and passwords, according to a statement being sent to all account holders.

The attack also has crippled Sony’s PlayStation Network, which has some 70 million subscribers and has been down since April 20. The network lets customers download video games from the Web and play against each other online.

“While there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility,” said Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment, which manage the two services, in a joint statement.

The hacker could have taken credit card numbers, card expiration dates, billing addresses, answers to security questions and purchase history, but not credit-card security codes, they said.

Sony is encouraging customers “to protect against possible identity theft or other financial loss” by reviewing credit-card statements. The company also suggested that some customers may want to place a “fraud alert” with credit bureaus.

Sony did not say how many accounts had been compromised. A spokeswoman declined to comment Tuesday.

Some subscribers reacted angrily to the news.

“You waited a WEEK to tell us our (personal) information was compromised?” one PlayStation user wrote on a Sony blog. “That should have been said last Thursday” — the day when Sony first acknowledged the issue.

The intrusions occurred between April 17 and 19, according to the statement. On April 20, Sony switched off the PlayStation and Qriocity online services, which have remained in the dark.

Users and paid subscribers were also mostly in the dark until Tuesday about the reason for the lengthy outage or about when services would be reinstated.

Sony initially said its PS network would be be back online within one to two days.

On Tuesday, PlayStation spokesman Patrick Seybold wrote in a statement that it could take another week before they “expect to restore some services.”

Andy’s voicemail…

by on Feb.12, 2011, under Humor, Politics

LOL, so Andy calls me while he’s out driving and leaves me this voicemail:

“So over at like I-70 and Wadsworth, there’s a  guy, you know, protesting war blah blah blah whatever… His sign actually says, and I quote ‘ Half the government is run by Klingons, the other half byFerengi.’ I’m not even joking… Bye.”

I couldn’t help but laugh. I love it it when Andy calls me with these random happenings he sees while out and about. He always finds the funny ones. The sad thing is, this guy’s sign kinda makes sense if you let you geek show a little and think about the implications of what he says. Great stuff Andy… keep it comin!
