So Many Songs. So Many Steps.
There have been a lot of AskMe posts lately (just a few examples) asking for music recommendations, and I'm once again thinking how much I'd like to listen these songs while I walk. Like on a playlist I could easily download and listen to offline, on my Android phone. [more inside]

Heartbleed SLL bug vulnerability
I've got the Chrome addon for the Heartbleed server test site and it's just given me a message saying that is vulnerable to the Heartbleed SSL bug. More information about the bug.

Train pass or student MetroCard?
Based on the participation in this post about the specialized high school system in NYC, it looks like a whole bunch of MeFites graduated from one of those schools. So I figured it'd be fun to have a MeTa thread to sound off.

Well have I got just the thing for you! [more inside]

I'm looking for a post with a non-linear dissertation
Some years ago (2007-10, I'd guess) there was a post to the Blue which linked to a dissertation. The dissertation was non-linear and the reader would choose the next part of the dissertation to read, and while that was happening, the dissertation wrote itself. Each part of the dissertation was in a little box, and the reader would choose which part to read by clicking on a box next to an already read box. I remember a black background with yellow boxes.
