Secure beneath the watchful eyes..

I want one of these:

It’s a poster from the government body in charge of transportation in London, these were put up all over London back in 2002 when they first introduced CCTV cameras on all public transportation (?). As you might know, England is the country with the most surveillance in the world (1 CCTV camera for every 14 people) – 500.000 cameras in London, and 4.200.000 cameras in the entire country. The poster is like straight out of Orwell’s 1984, and I want one! I wonder if the people that made it were playing on the Big Brother theme, I hope they meant it sort as a joke.. There is apparently also a similar poster made by an american bus company, it looks more like a war poster though. If you have any idea where I can get these, please let me know!

Norwegian online banks..

You should be able to afford something better than the cheapest SSL certificate when you’re a BANK, come on, get at least the wildcard one.. and preferably one with Extended Validation so that people get that fancy green validation line in modern browsers.. Cheap bastards.. Also, the two last days most of the manjor banks in Norway have had big problems with their net bank service. According to Norwegian newspapers this problem was caused by a piece of hardware malfunctioning at EDB Business Partner.. You’re the heart of Norwegian Internet banking and you have a single point of failure?? (if the newspapers are reporting this correctly.. who knows..).. But anyway, you should have multiple redundancies in every possible point of failure when doing something like this.. .. today’s little rant
