Endive Wombat: So everyone's porn searches were revealed?

Should have been using

Sources say they were relieved, however, when 99.9% of the search data started with "How to download chrome"

Let me guess, several million searches for the word Google.

Hehe. Meow Attack. Never heard of it before, it sounds awful. But the name amused me. Now I feel bad.

Mugato: Bing sucks aside from all of that.

I find that rarely and by a very slim margin, slightly better at finding really technical Microsoft things. YMMV.

"yoga pants sheer bend over busty milf" user unavailable for comment says Bing spokesman...

The data appears to be generated by the Bing mobile app

Whew.  Okay, folks, it's alright.  Fewer people use Bing than Google, and even fewer are such total nerds as to download the Bing App.

Hot on the heels of the "sure, you can completely take over our entire Windows Enterprise Domain without a user account" bug?

Microsoft is really nailing that whole "security" thing this year.

Considering that Microsoft has done Bob and Bing -

I'm surprised it ever had authentication to begin with, given their entire security apparatus is an afterthought anyway.

Guess I'll go back to debugging today's issue with one of our IIS servers.

Hey, Destructor,thanks for the month of TF!  Glad I was able to provide a smile or two.

It's been a long day, but the hospital finally cut my bro loose, and I was able to get him back home.  His wife, his Mom, and his dog are all very happy.

Even better, he now has an endocrinologist who thinks she knows what's going on with him.

It seems that the adrenal glands do more than make adrenalin - they also make Cortisol.  Her theory is that Jubal's adrenals are cranking out way too much Cortisol.  This has the effect of blocking his ability to process insulin.  So a lot of the time, it doesn't matter how much insulin he injects, he ain't burning sugar.

She's supposed to be one of the tops in her field, so if she's right - and if they can get Jubal's Cortisol production under control - this could have significant implications for his health and quality of life.
