  • Re: Identity Tokens - facebook/google/flickr

    [quote user="flabdablet"]Then why not add a table of session IDs to the user database, instead of all this fartarsing about with stuffing possibly sensitive things into tokens? If you're going to have to hit the user DB to authenticate the username and password in the token anyway, why not just authenticate a nonce?[/quote] Each ...

  • Re: So... about that Heartbleed

    [quote user="flabdablet"]Mocking other coders while making no contribution at all to their code is better?[/quote] Honest question: would you feel better if Morbs started contributing to OpenSSL? Because me? I'd take the mocking.

  • Re: So... about that Heartbleed

    Someone wanna tell me what FIPS actually stands for? Blog doesn't bother to define it. Googling brings up something about Federal Information Processing Standards, but why would that be a "mode" in SSL?

  • Re: The things people do for money...

    [quote user="joe.edwards"]So if 1% of the developers have less freedom to not distribute their source code, but 99% of the users have additional freedom to access source code, is that more or less free?[/quote] Access to the source code is entirely useless to the vast majority of people. If you want to empower people, we already ...

    [quote user="Snooder"]So, tell me, is a country where a landholder has an unrestricted right to kill, beat or torture his tenants more or less "free" than a country where serfdom is banned by law?[/quote] Less. Because if 1% of the population has more freedom, that doesn't outweigh 99% of the population having ...
