It’s finally happened. I knew it was just a matter of time.

Spammers are now guessing account passwords and using authenticated SMTP to send mail.

It’s time to make your password just a little better, folks.

Miscellaneous good news:

  • Inkscape 0.39 has much improved font handling. I think it’s good enough now for my purposes. I miss Corel Draw 7 less with every release.
  • GIMP 2.1.2 is out, with a GUI-less mode. Good news for those who want to have a little gimp-fu on their sites.
  • Why The Lucky Stiff’s site has a new design, as wonderfully quirky as the old one. Kudos to _why.
  • And last but not least, the root nameservers are going IPv6. Maybe we’ll see IPv6 rollout hit the masses this year. Or the next.
