The Matrix: The Future Will Not Be User Friendly

The Matrix, my favorite movie ever.. is [#34] of the IMBD Top 250 movies as voted by users..
The movie has a rating of [8.5] from votes of [189,223] users..

The Matrix is produced on (1999) with a budget of $63,000,000 and earned $631,000,000..

The film:
A computer hacker Thomas Anderson has lived a relatively ordinary life--in what he thinks is the year 1999--until he is contacted by the enigmatic Morpheus who leads him into the real world. In reality, it is 200 years later, and the world has been laid waste and taken over by advanced artificial intelligence machines. The computers have created a false version of 20th-century life--the "Matrix"--to keep the human slaves satisfied, while the AI machines draw power from the humans. Anderson, pursued constantly by "Agents" (computers who take on human form and infiltrate the Matrix), is hailed as "The One" who will lead the humans to overthrow the machines and reclaim the Earth..

Awards: The Matrix won 4 Oscars.. another 28 wins & 35 nominations..
Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself..

Half Of Domain-Name Servers Are Open To Attack

Half of the web's domain name servers are wrongly configured, leaving companies and large sections of the internet infrastructure open to attack. Infoblox, a developer of security appliances, and The Measurement Factory, a performance testing company, have just released their "2006 DNS Report Card". DNS servers map domain names into IP addresses, directing users’ internet inquiries to the appropriate location.

Should an organization’s DNS systems fail, all internet functions, including e-mail, web access, e-commerce and extranets become unavailable. The DNS survey was based on a scanned sample of systems consisting of almost 80 million DNS devices, or 5% of the main IP version 4-based devices being used on the internet. The survey found that 50% of DNS servers allow recursive name services – a form of name resolution that often requires a name server to relay requests to other name servers.

This leaves many networks vulnerable to pharming attacks and enables their servers to be used in DNS amplification attacks that can take down important DNS infrastructure, said the two companies.

In addition, more than 29% of DNS servers surveyed allow zone transfers to arbitrary queries, enabling duplication of an entire segment of an organization’s DNS data from one DNS server to another, and leaving them easy targets for denial of service attacks.

Micro$ Redesigned

In early November Micro$oft plans to release the new design of the Micro$ home page to the general public.

They must be hiding some AJAX scripting to make it so discreet.

I guess we’ll all know in early November when it launches.

Micro$oft updates their website favicon

Micro$oft has updated their website in the most subtle ways possible, by adding a new favicon..

The new favicon portrays the letter "M" negatively imposed on a blue background, thought to be similar to the blue color from the website header..

The favicon is only limited to 256 colors, it is unknown why Micro$oft did not generate a full color icon instead of the 256 colors icon which cannot accurately recreate the blue used on the rest of the website..

12 Lessons for Those Afraid of CSS and Standards

The cries of frustration I hear from other developers about CSS are only an echo of the ones I made for years. As a result I like to think that I can relate, and I’m writing to convey the most important lessons I’ve learned so far.

1. Everything you know is wrong.. sort of..
2. It’s not going to look exactly the same everywhere unless you’re willing to face some grief..
3. You will be forced to choose between the ideal and the practicable..
4. Perfection is not when there’s nothing to add, but when there’s nothing to take away..
5. Some sites are steaming heaps of edge cases..
6. Longer lead times are inevitable..
7. Coherent and sensible source order is the best of Good Things..
8. Descendant selectors are the beginning and end of genuinely powerful CSS rules..
9. In the real world, stylesheet hacks will get your project across the finish line..
10. Working around rendering bugs is like playing Whack-a-Mole..
11. When you’re drowning in CSS layout problems, make sure of the width and height of the water, float without putting up a struggle, and get clear of the problems..
12. Background images will make the difference between the plain and the tastefully embellished..

Don't Make Me Think

Never been in a meeting like that. The solution to this problem, by the way, is usability testing. Imagine that: making decisions based on actual data instead of never ending, last man standing filibuster style religious debates. Revolutionary!
