The Ultimate DNS Bug?

I subscribe to a lot of tech blogs. I’m sorta amazed that I didn’t hear about this sooner and I’m somewhat confused now that I have!

I saw it on Chris Blizzard‘s site and he links to the O’Reilly article about it.

The jist is that there’s some “holy shit” bug that threatens every single implementation of DNS and that the dude who found it will be letting the cat out of the bag on Aug 3 of this year.

The video is a bit weird though. The panning of the audience and the guy’s delivery almost make it seem like a parody or a joke. It can’t be, though, right?

Fallout 3 and Wii News

Fallout 2 was a really really great game. It had it all. Louis Armstrong, Tool references, oh and great gameplay and story too. I’m really looking forward to Fallout 3 and I hope it’s not too FPSy. The video looks pretty kickass.

I also saw, but was confused by the announcement that Nintendo is releasing a new version of the Wiimote that’s more sensitive(?) or something. The video seems fun, especially since they play the Mario theme which I love.

I’m really surprised at how much I like the Wii. The WiiFit is especially nice given that it’s the first time in my life that I haven’t absolutely despised exercise.

Top Ten TED Talks

I realize I’m way late on getting this published, but it’s just so good I don’t mind being late.

I saw this on Boing Boing and I don’t really have time to add a lot to it right now, so this one goes out to the folks who can’t handle the traffic of megablogs like BB. Every one of these is simply great. Well worth your time.
