Wheee!

Ok so the Firefox Flicks competition is over, some of the enteries were hillarious, such as Wheee! It featured IE, Netscape, Safari, and our favorite, Firefox.

CSS Reboot, Ye! Or Nay?

Well the CSS Reboot thingy is May 1st, many websites and blogs will be doing some spring cleaning on their designs. Weblogs.us could be one of these sites, just it would be allot of work and I feel that there are too many loose ends to get fixed. Honestly, this very minute JD could take my weblogsus/ directory and set it as the main page, do a few minor adjustments to fix intentionally broken links and all would be good. But it wouldn’t be ‘live’, and all the goodness that I am trying to put into it will be overshadowed for its incompleteness.

The crib won’t be getting any drastic design changes either; I’m far too busy working on the Weblogs.us front page and preparing for AP tests. Nighttime complements the crib better right now than the day header, that’s the explanation for the ‘change’.

The Crib: 365 Days Young

One year ago, I posted my first entry on this blog, marking my transition from Blogger to WordPress. Much has changed in a year, more frequent posts, a custom layout, a work-in-progress plug-in, and much more. Currently the new layout for Weblogs.us, my awesome blog host, is in the works of being written in xHtml and CSS. Hopefully there will be a super-sneak-preview available in the not so distant future, besides I need to upload it somewhere to get some of the features to work. I have a tad bit more xHtml to write and its styling and I will be done with all non-dynamic design, with the exception of making Internet Exploder listen correctly to my CSS commands.

Stupid Phishers, I’m No Idiot

Today someone claiming to be part of the Chase-Security Support Service sent me an e-mail claiming that they ‘discovered’ recent activity on my account and that I had to log-in to my Chase Online account to resolve the issue. Funny how they ‘knew’ that I ‘have’ a Chase card, which I don’t.

Hovering over the hyperlink, which they tried to discreetly insert a bit of cover code so the average moron would think it was valid, but instead of going to https://chase.com or some related URL the hyper link pointed to some adsl-numbers link and then the cover http://chase.com/… Knowing that this was definitely a scam, which Thunderbird warned of, I clicked the link. Firefox displayed the address as http://jaew.us/login.htm with additional variable passing in the address, defiantly a scam. I tried the https version, and got an access forbidden.

I have taken the liberty of contacting JPMorgan Chase, notifying them of this scammer, which wants your name, credit card number, mother’s name, social security number, and CVV2. After collecting this information, which I provided fake information such as 123 12 1234 for the social security number, and [Expletive] You Scammer as my ‘name’, I was sent to Chase’s real website, which is not entire secure as it redirects https traffic to its http server.

Happy Easter

Sorry that I don’t have a special header for Easter this year, I’ve been busy with other things. Expect to see a new layout mockup for Weblogs.us by the end of the week, and possibly implemented by May 1. Cribsense development has been paused at build 0025 in order to allocate time to get the Weblogs.us project done. Development resumes in May for Cribsense, and expect my blog to be buggy during that time as I implement it as a easy to install plug-in, that’s incase if I can’t get WordPress to install on mtekktux.
