I'm devastated to hear that William Cook passed away on Wed. Much of 1990s OOP was defined by his seminal papers. When he returned after a decade in industry (AppleScript!) I invited him to @BrownCSDept (where he got his PhD from Peter Wegner) and we became friends. Tragic.

IT-dept @UiB: we're doing a #security sprint, requiring 2FA, firewall, #VPN and such! Also IT-dept @UiB: to access your email etc through VPN, please download this shell script and run it as root. 🤦‍♀️

Also, for fun, @UiB's VPN setup will: route all IPv4 and IPv6 traffic through itself (it takes over the entire internet) – but it doesn't really do IPv6 (??), so it just drops those packets. Fortunately, it seems emails and such do get sent once IPv6 times out...

Well, at least you get the shell script from a secured website that you have to log in to through a totally unfamiliar login form instead of the usual Feide SSO.

Well, *at least* I can (reasonably) hope I didn't just give my username and password to a random guy who managed to insert a fake record into @UiB's DNS :)

Through a multi-step process, an individual took the records of at least three educators, decoded the HTML source code, and viewed the SSN of those specific educators. We notified the Cole County prosecutor and the Highway Patrol’s Digital Forensic Unit will investigate.

Happy 75th birthday to @UiB! 🥳 The picture below is from the opening ceremony, 73 years ago. From the left, Crown Prince Olav and Rector Bjørn Trumpy. The pretty lady in the center is my grandmother, Gunvor Bagge.

Apparently I also did a proper, clean scan of the photo. (This is not exactly an anniversary photo, since it's from @UiB's opening on Aug 30th 1948 – today is the 75th anniversary of the Act of Parliament that established @UiB – exactly six years after the Nazi invasion)

Oh good: all CS departments that are hiring are doing so almost exclusively in machine learning and cyber security. All other CS problems must be solved. And no other CS teaching must be done. That’s a relief. #phew

Understanding how people learn computing should be considered part of the computing discipline itself. @guzdial makes the case ...
