In the last few months, I’ve fixed a bunch of poor design decisions on my part around encoding and
repr() within PottyMouth, and added new syntax suggested by users. The latest version is 1.2.0.
Your Google Voice voice mail might be publicly available. I wish Google would stop screwing up like this so I can go back to the good old days of hating Microsoft.
I wonder how long before something like staple/unstaple gets integrated into a file-sharing protocol:
If [the copyright holder] wants to prove that Bob is violating the DMCA, she must violate the DMCA herself…
Thanks to Jeff Atwood for posting about the benefits of the HttpOnly flag on cookies. Support for HttpOnly cookies has now been added to Python 2.6’s Cookie module, and Paste’s WSGIResponse. Pylons applications can now use the HttpOnly flag to protect cookies, significantly raising the bar against XSS attacks on users of those applications.
Latest versions of Firefox, Opera, and Internet Explorer already support HttpOnly. Now all that’s left is for Apple to fix CFNetwork to support HttpOnly and then WebKit/Safari will be able to support it too.
I’ve ported PottyMouth 1.0.2, my library for transforming completely unstructured and untrusted text to valid, nice-looking, completely safe XHTML, from Python to Ruby 1.9. If you’re a Ruby user or fan, let me know what you think. This is part of a larger project to learn and evaluate Ruby. I’ll be posting my findings soon, so subscribe if you’re curious why I used Ruby 1.9, or if you’re interested in reading my thoughts on Ruby.
And I would like a mint condition German ENIGMA machine for my birthday, please.
