    Off topic: Scott’s girlfriend, Ozy, has her own blog now, and is hosting the [race-and-gender open threads](http://thingofthings.wordpress.com/2014/11/11/open-thread-2-the-amazing-race/) that Scott doesn’t want in his blog. If you still want to talk to the SSC crowd, you could post there.

    Come on Jim, put some suggestions forward. The illiterate masses look up to you.

      All suck. Linux is theoretically safest, in part because people focus their attacks on windows.

    All the apple users are wondering “what’s a string? and what’s a domain?”.

      I wonder that too. I am frequently amazed at how many people on this site seem to be computer gurus.
