  • Posted to The Hamburger Menu Doesn't Work, Aug 11, 2015

    I would have liked to have seen some quantitative evidence to present the failure of the hamburger menu. Although I agree with the sentiment, it just seems like this is a re-hashing of other articles.

    One step further and you can use z.

    Awesome tool that makes working in the terminal so much faster.

    These aren't just DDoS attacks I don't think.

    I read before that they setup honeypots around the world and then just log incoming attacks.

    There are plenty more than that... WordPress has a pretty big VIP side, with some pretty big clients. As you can see though, the service doesn't come cheap.

    It's a bit disingenuous to compare a self hosted blog to what is being offered from WordPress VIP.

    I'm not sure I've ever heard anyone say that WordPress being easy to pick up is a downside of it, if anything that's a massive benefit. However, once you want to take hold of some of the more advanced features it does get slightly more complicated.

    Also, stating that there are security issues with "pretty much any Internet facing computer system" is just wrong. WordPress does have a larger share of issues in this area, especially once a user installs a bunch of unknown plugins. I think that having sections dedicated to securing your install - as an extra to what is done by default - proves this (especially the parts about obscuring the wp_content parts of URLs).

  • Posted to Let’s Boycott Passwords, May 10, 2014

    This already exists with password managers though. For example, I use 1Password, and remember the one password for that. A keyboard shortcut fills in all my details when I need to register for a site, and any time I need to login I use another shortcut that fills the form automatically.

    The only small problem with this is that I need to login to sites on other computers. But the solution is the iPhone app that shows me all the saved passwords. I feel this is a much better solution than having to "forget your password" any time you need to login somewhere unfamiliar. And then again, once you log out of that place and you get back to your original machine you'll have to reset your password again.

    2 step authentication is definitely interesting, but I would imagine it would make a lot of people who aren't used to not having a password nervous.

    Another +1 for dragdis. I love the fact that it takes screenshots of the pages you drag to it.
