A few people pointed out that it's eBay Australia's 15th birthday, and you can get things cheaper today and tomorrow. As part of saying thankyou to buyers and sellers, there will be 15% off site wide, completely funded by eBay. Max discount $100, $50 minimum spend, 3 transactions per person.

Google says we shouldn't worry about the recent password leak. “We found that less than 2% of the username and password combinations might have worked, and our automated anti-hijacking systems would have blocked many of those login attempts. We’ve protected the affected accounts and have required those users to reset their passwords.” There's also some concerns about the "isleaked" site some people are recommending to check addresses. Why could this be? Because isleaked.com was registered on the 8th, 2 days before the story broke anywhere else. It may be fine, but I'm always suspicious of those "enter your email" sites - which is why I didn't link it on the news page.

Boingboing report on some slightly alarming comments from the BBC. BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the UK public broadcaster, has told an Australian government proceeding that people who use VPNs a lot should be assumed to be engaged in piracy, that ISPs should surveil their users, that websites should be censored by Chinese-style national firewalls, and that the families of people accused of watching TV the wrong way should be disconnected from the Internet.

RAAF fans will enjoy this video sent in by Sciby, showcasing our Hornets. The Royal Australian Air Force has had a proud tradition of Hornet flying since 1984. Now operating both F/A-18A+ and F/A-18F variants, the land down under is most definitely Hornet country.
