    » In his recent Bangkok concert, Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman, Oscar-winning actor and all-around woman-melter Jared Leto said it was “interesting” and “inspiring” to see “democracy at work” in the city’s Lumpini Park. He was, of course, referring to the camp-in protesters backing Suthep Thaugsuban’s plan to oust caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and install an unelected “people’s council”, which would choose the country’s leaders.

    » Toot Yung Art Center’s current resident artist Maja Hurst thinks it’s for other people rather than herself to decide what type of artist she is.

    Heartbleed causing heartache

    Life, James Hein, Published on 23/04/2014

    » One of the hottest topics in the computing world over the past two weeks has been a problem with the security of OpenSSL named Heartbleed. The short version is that this popular security layer has had a bug for the last couple of years that allowed people to grab not only information from a computer, but also passwords and decryption keys. The fix is to go to the OpenSSL site download and apply the latest version, anything past 1.0.1f, from here, www.openssl.org/related/binaries.html. If your Android phone is 4.1.x, then download a Heartbleed detector from the Play Store and check your exposure. For the technically minded, the problem is a missing bounds check so that the attacker can grab 64KB of memory. There are code samples on the net if you want more details. I suspect that system administrators have been busy all over the world patching their machines, generating new public and private keys and notifying all users to change their passwords on affected systems. I also suspect that there will be administrators and users who will not take any steps at all, either due to laziness or hubris. There is strong evidence that you should change all your important passwords at places like banks.

    Turning trash into treasure

    Life, Sasiwimon Boonruang, Published on 23/04/2014

    » Since yard and car-boot sales are still not very common in this country, it had never occurred to Bangkok businessman Veerapong that he could sell all the junk cluttering up his house, items which he hadn’t used for years and probably never would again. Until the day his daughter pointed to a set of golf clubs that had been leaning against the wall in one room, untouched, for ages and suggested that he should try to flog them online at a website called OLX.
