Default The Internet is a dangerous place

This will be especially noteworthy for those of you who use Java :

Java, the coffee or the software?

Time to port BSD into it and use a cron job to make coffee during the morning.

Distributed Denial of Coffee (DDoC), ROFLMBO !!!


When it comes to the language: I like Java a lot design wise, I've just avoided writing code in it as much as possible over the past 3.5 years or so ;-)

When it comes to the beverage: I don't drink coffee or caffeine.


Guess I am safe <_<

Craig Wright just re-sent another e-mail to bugtraq explaining in details the problem. I see no mention of Java anywhere. It looks more like an input validation issue. Java or not, if input is not validated, security flaws appear!

See definition 2, stukov. It will help you get the joke:

java

noun

  1. an island in Indonesia to the south of Borneo; one of the world's most densely populated regions
  2. a beverage consisting of an infusion of ground coffee beans; "he ordered a cup of coffee" [syn: coffee]
  3. a platform-independent object-oriented programming language

This coffeepot is a complex commercial one. The interface was designed, I think, primarily for remote technical service.

Hey, with a coffee maker like that people can finally add a set of *-coffee-maker macros to emacs ;-)

In high school, I was in a physics class that was rather, uh, different. We had our own marching band; need I say more? (Oh, and there is more!)

Our teacher was a Canadian who had problems with the US military draft back then (didn't I say there was more?). He was showing how the solution to a problem made no sense because it ended with 11 joules of energy being driven into the ground and "Of course, why would we need to drive 11 joules of energy into the ground?"

After a very brief pause as we all looked at each other, "Leaf" said, "Well, now, wait a minute..."

To be safe, you'd have to network the coffeepot to the toaster, and be sure to run NetBSD and pf on the toaster.
