I'm guessing Pinkie Pie is not a "brogrammer"...

...and likely neither "bros down" nor "crushes code".

A teenage hacker who identified himself only as PinkiePie said he spent the past week and half working on the attack. [...]

"These kinds of things are finicky" PinkiePie told reporters as he finished a blueberry yogurt just minutes after making his booby-trapped website display a picture of a pink pony wielding a medieval axe. He said he "got lucky" because he found a way to break out of Google's sandbox relatively early and then spent the rest of the time identifying vulnerabilities that allowed him to remotely funnel code through the system.

Stephen Wolfram's Epic Analytics are EPIC.


Let's start off talking about email. I have a complete archive of all my email going back to 1989. Here's a plot with a dot showing the time of each of the third of a million emails I've sent since 1989:

OK. So email is one kind of data I've systematically archived. And there's a huge amount that can be learned from that. Another kind of data that I've been collecting is keystrokes. For many years, I've captured every keystroke I've typed -- now more than 100 million of them:

He what? He what? He archived every keystroke for a decade.

I am in a great deal of awe and not a little bit of outright worship at this project. Holy shit. Why didn't I do that?? Look at those fucking graphs. Just fucking look at them.

DNA Lounge: Wherein we're hiring!

Jay, who has been managing DNA Pizza since we opened almost exactly a year ago, has decided to step down to a less life-consuming role. He's not leaving us, but we're now looking for someone else to fill the General Manager role at the pizza place. Got any leads? Here's our Craigslist ad. It's fairly direct:

  1. Must have experience in 24 hour restaurant management or coffee shop management.
  2. Must be computer literate and good at communicating online.
  3. Must be creative and self directed.
  4. Must provide references.
  5. Email plain text resume. Word documents will be ignored.

We're specifically hoping for someone with more experience in the "cafe" or "morning" side of things than the "pizza" side, since we've pretty much got the whole pizza thing down. It's the other stuff we're still struggling with.

We're also still looking for more non-management employees at DNA Pizza, both in-house and delivery folks. That ad is here.

Hey look, more photo galleries:

Have I mentioned lately how much I love Mortified? So hilarious.Tonight was an extra-long show as they were filming a documentaryabout the show, which should be out by the end of the year. If youmissed this show, I'm sorry, because it was great. But it sold out!So, many of you are right-thinking individuals, and we thank you foryour fine taste.

Felix da Housecat tomorrow!
