I'm a software developer working on a social-networking site. I work mainly in J2EE, SQL, HTML, JavaScript and CSS. My free time is spent raising a daughter and a son and indoctrinating them in the cult of Lego.

comment Can HTTPS traffic over an unencrypted wireless network be viewed by others?
@Pieter: If you visit the same domain using HTTP and HTTPS at the same time, the traffic over HTTP and any cookies that aren't marked as SSL-only will be visible. The unsecured Wifi is equivalent to the unsecured internet: people can see your traffic. SSL encrypts between the endpoints: the server and the browser, so if you are actually talking to the server then your traffic can reach it unmolested.

comment Is open id secure?
@Evan: anyone can be a bank but banks often have some level of responsibility for their clients money even in the face of mistakes made by the client. In that case the banks would need to be very careful about letting customers choose any random openID provider, whose password policies they can not change and can not provide support for.

This doesn't work on Fedora 10 or 11 by default because NetworkManager is installed incorrectly for some reason.

comment Why can't I print from Windows on CUPS from a single application?
@DR: Difficult to say, except that it may depend on what drivers those workstations are using and what they are printing.
