as the scope of authority or privilege by user agents. Typically,
user agents isolate content retrieved from different origins to
prevent malicious web site operators from interfering with the

to determine the origin of a URI, how to serialize an origin into a
string, and an HTTP header, named "Origin", that indicates which
origins are associated with an HTTP request."ietfreferencetechnicalwebbrowseruser-agentwebbrowserorigin
2011 Jun 20, 2:36A mix of 36 YouTube videos of various people playing Radiohead's Paranoid Android. It sounds good but the video too is very compelling. Also I would be psych'ed if it were my video picked to

2011 Jun 20, 2:25I knew it was a game but still felt bad war-dialing and otherwise messing around in there. What if I accidentally find a way out? "Telehack is the most interesting game I've played in the last

lulzy to one person could certainly enrage another. In honor of its 1,000th tweet, the witty wankers of LulzSec released a manifesto of sorts, defending their actions to the angry Internets."internetsecurityprivacyhacktechnical
2011 Jun 12, 3:48Charles Stross puts parts of his new book Rule 34 on his blog: "By kind consent of the publishers, I'm
able to give you a sneak preview of the first few chapters. So I'm going to roll them out on consecutive Fridays. Here's the opening."
As it turns out the WPAD Server Fiddler Extension I made a while back actually has a non-malicious purpose. Apparently its useful for debugging HTTP on the WP7
phone (or so I'm told). Anyway I took some requests and I've fixed a few minor bugs (start button not updating correctly), changed the dialog to be a Fiddler tab so you can use it non-modally, and
the WPAD server is now always off when Fiddler starts.
