I’ve lived a pretty good life so far. Somehow I’ve made it to every state in the USA except Alaska. I need to get there sometime!
This is great. I’ll have to remember this resource for images
Every day, we make decisions that have good or bad consequences for our future selves. (Can I skip flossing just this one time?) Daniel Goldstein makes tools that help us imagine ourselves over time, so that we make smart choices for Future Us.

In news of stuff and things and things and stuff, I just purchased two monumental sock orders from everybody’s friends at Sockguy, both of which are probably my most favorite socks ever. The problem is, I still have a smattering left of the S/M Department of Awesome sock;
“After looking at the technical specs for Ohio 2004, there is no doubt in my mind that the election was stolen. The system was designed to facilitate it. At one point, the vote count in a particular county was going for Kerry, then a fail over occurred (for no reason that I could discern), and control of the vote count was handed off to a backup reporting server hosted in another state by a partisan Republican consulting firm who had been found guilty of electoral fraud previously. When the system came back up, Bush was suddenly winning.
No valid reason for the fail over was ever presented. The case died, because two years after the fact, what are they going to do? They got away with it.”

A simple way to send a shit in a box around the world.
How does it work:

DNS cache keeps an IP address stored in your computer. If you’re doing web development and you’ve moved your content to a new server sometimes you can’t reach it. The DNS entry needs to be changed.
In Mac OSX 10.10 Mavericks open up your terminal Application located in Applications/Utilities/Terminal
One Simple Step to Clear DNS Cache on OS X Yosemite:
sudo discoveryutil udnsflushcaches
Now, ping the domain that was cached and the new IP should show up for you.
In previous versions of Mac OS X you defined the default browser inside of Safari. In Mac OS X you set the default browser inside of System Preferences -> General -> Default web browser.
Step 1: Open Up System Preferences and click on the “General” icon
Step 2: Select your default browser. I am switching from Safari to Google Chrome Canary
Now when you get a link in your email or any other place your new default browser will open up. Happy web surfin’.
You’re developing a site on a sub-domain or development server that is setup something like this, dev.YourDomain.com and you want to see if all the files and paths are correct. You’ve moved the site to a new server and IP and you want to check YourDomain.com there without disrupting the live site. Simply edit your /private/etc/hosts file on your Mac OS X box to reflect the new IP you want to test.
Real Live Site: YourDomain.com IP 220.127.116.11
Dev Site: dev.YourDomain.com IP 18.104.22.168
DNS Masked Site: YourDomain.com IP 22.214.171.124
Simply edit /private/etc/hosts and add the line
126.96.36.199 yourdomain.com www.yourdomain.com
Now when you ping yourdomain.com your system will return 188.8.131.52. Open up your browser and test your new site before making the DNS switch on the real DNS servers.
The hosts file is used to map hostnames to IP addresses. With the hosts file you can change the IP to which you resolve a certain domain name.
This is particularly useful when you wish to see how a website will look when hosted on a different server without having to wait for a DNS change to propagate, or avoiding any DNS changes at all.
These are pretty awesome. I need to cop this guys idea and make sum dees. Yeh, whenIGetSomeTimeToDoThisStuff();
Say Goodbye to SSL 3.0
Today we are publishing details of a vulnerability in the design of SSL version 3.0. This vulnerability allows the plaintext of secure connections to be calculated by a network attacker. I discovered this issue in collaboration with Thai Duong and Krzysztof Kotowicz (also Googlers).
