  • Re: This.... from a bank.... I'm.... WTF?!

    [quote user="Buttembly Coder"] I think the argument is that XORing results reduces the entropy of the overall process, essentially "averaging" the entropy of each part. Imagine I had two sources of randomness, one produces 0,1,2,3,0,1,2,3... And the other produces 0,1,0,1... XORing...

  • Re: Secure webmail

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]Anyway, seems like having email that's encrypted client-side and which doesn't need special software to use would be cool, but why store the key in the browser cache (I'm assuming they mean "cookie"..)? You'd be way better off having them...

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]Off-the-cuff, that sounds like it would substantially weaken the algo. Do you have a cite on how this works? It's probably just me being paranoid, but I'd like to see a crypto professional explain it.[/quote] [quote user="From wikipedia"]Although...

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"][quote user="ObiWayneKenobi"]As a pet peeve I really hate sites that impose a password maximum. A minimum is bad enough but understandable at least, but a maximum? What if I want to use an actual phrase/sentence as my password versus some wonky characters...

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]How is it possible to fuck up that badly?[/quote] More importantly, why is Mole's money in a bank that does this that badly?

  • Re: Long Life bug : Do not use the letter 'j'

    [quote user="Snooder"]I actually like online monopoly. Mostly because it's the only way to get a game together without having your friends tar and feather you afterward for being "too cheap" when you stack 5 hotels on Baltic and Mediterranean avenue. Plus, it's much more difficult...

  • Re: What web develpment basics are worth learning for an amateur programmer?

    [quote user="javert"]I’m now assigned to deliver the contents to a website via an admin account[/quote] My understanding of this is that you are throwing the data into the webserver so that it can then serve up reports on it or whatever. Depending on how you are throwing the data at the webserver...

    This actually sounds like a really good way to get back at whoever is making you play 20 questions, I need to remember it.

    [quote user="boomzilla"]Yeah, still plenty of big company / government customers who are still dragging their heels and using IE8. Once they get past that, quality of life improves, but we're not all there yet.[/quote] IE8 is dragging their heels? I still need to support IE6 for my big...

  • Re: Security by space bar

    I wonder why they weren't just doing a try again on password failure. I mean you keep count of fails with the server to catch brute forcers, but otherwise you normally just give the same password stuff again. Anyone with an Xbox account have an explanation as to why the verification would have been...
