"They say there's a lid for every pot. And when a geek has found his lid, there comes a time when he wants to take a soldering iron to it and make sure it's not going anywhere. But a true geek can't just hide a ring in the dessert and get down on one knee. Oh, no. He must pop the question with creativity and flair, to make it as memorable as possible for his geek princess in the only ways a geek knows how. And these days, that means he might just have to do a bit of coding. Read on for some of the geekiest marriage proposals ever..."
Happy Valentines everyone :)
"Next time the Catholic Guilt strikes, you can start the confession process on your iPhone.

"Aaron Barr believed he had penetrated Anonymous. The loose hacker collective had been responsible for everything from anti-Scientology protests to pro-Wikileaks attacks on MasterCard and Visa, and the FBI was now after them.

In a private e-mail to a colleague at his security firm HBGary Federal, which sells digital tools to the US government, the CEO bragged about his research project.
"That's what we are to believe based upon a survey of 14,284 individuals conducted by security vendor Avira.

"Upset boyfriends and girlfriends are nothing new. There are plenty of stories of girlfriends getting back at their ex-boyfriends for mistreatment and visa versa. But in the age where Google ranks supreme, you do not want to mess with a girl who knows how to manipulate Google. One guy learned this the hard way...

"A 10-year-old boy from Loreto, Milan, got a refresher class in ‘watching where you’re putting your feet 101’ when he accidentally stepped off a subway platform. Absorbed in his PSP game, the boy took one step too far past the yellow line and fell onto the tracks. Luckily for him, policeman Alessandro Micalizzi acted fast and hopped down onto the tracks to return him to safety before he suffered anything worse than a couple of bumps and bruises."
"The big ISPs, especially Comcast and Time Warner Cable, have intervened for months in massive file-sharing lawsuits, telling judges that they simply can't drop all of their activity for law enforcement in order to spend weeks doing IP address lookups on behalf of pornographers.
