Anybody got a spare god lying around?

I kid you not, godchecker.com will give you the scoop on Norse, Greek, Roman, Native American, Incan, Mayan, Aztec, Chinese, African, Australian and Finnish gods .. OK, mythology, but they're there. Ever wonder what Freya was really all about?

Bringing the Internet to its knees?

No doubt you've heard about this "new vulnerability" that can "bring the Internet down". The real scoop is in US-CERT's TA04-111A. Well, first, it's not a new vulnerability, it's an exploit of an old one that was published back in 2001. Next, the chances of any of the major hubs NOT addressing this issue is almost nil.

So, what's the deal? I dunno, a slow newsday and the hounds were looking for anything that'd move product, I guess. I'm not saying it's an inconsequential flaw, just that it doesn't foretell the end of the world or anything like that.

Free site: store files for 48 hours for pickup

The Dropload.com site says:

"Dropload is a place for you to drop your files off and have them picked up by someone else at a later time. Recipients you specify are sent an email with instructions on how to download the file. Files are removed from the system after 48 hours, regardless if they have been picked up or not. Recipients can be anyone with an email address."

Pretty neat. 50M filesize limitation and, of course, you shouldn't use it for illicit purposes.
