Re: Rant - Best Buy return Policy

I read that it is best to provide your passport as the photo identification. That is more private than driver licenses.

Re: GOOG/GOOGL

This is what I did.

1. Split the shares I had.
2. removed 50% of them
3. Added in the new shares with the new symbol at the price of the split - I THINK it was 568.0999.

Hope that is clean. But it works for me.

Re: Detect sites vulnerable to Heartbleed

Could not the damage already be done ? Before the patch was released, user IDs, passwords,etc.. could have already been collected.

Re: Learning coding in elementary school

Maybe by teaching coding at such an early age, by the time the students get to college, they will be speaking binary !


What fun that will be.

Re: If you're receiving a pension, heads-up.

As I recall, a few months/weeks ago, there was a proposal that the Gov was going to cut military pension cost of living hikes. After some exposure in the media, Congress reversed that decision.
