On Deprecating HTTP

Mozilla announced: There’s pretty broad agreement that HTTPS is the way forward for the web. In recent months, there have been statements from IETF, IAB (even the other IAB), W3C, and the US Government calling for universal use of encryption by Internet applications, which in the case of the web means HTTPS.

Still Alive

Posting suddenly got very sporadic since I’ve been so busy. Going to work on getting it back to normal real soon.

NASA’s Rubber Room

Under Pad 39A and 39B at Kennedy Space Center NASA built a complex of tunnels and bunkers for in case the Saturn V rocket that would bring Apollo astronauts to the moon exploded.
