Mighty cool :-)

Stéphanie showed me this site today… I’m glad someone finally found out! :-D

Beautiful weather

I just woke up and found that it’s raining… That is so nice, I’m getting rather bored with all the sunny weather and all the extreme temperatures.

Oh well, now it stopped… too bad that it didn’t last longer.

Raptures of Berry

Yummy! If you haven’t done so already, then please take a moment to stop by at Stéphanie’s homepage — she’s made a new theme filled with summer joy (a.k.a. strawberries). Lovely, isn’t it? :-)

She did the graphics using some beautiful stock images from Stock.XCHNG. There you can find excellent quality photos of almost anything and it’s all for free. They’re being used in professionel publishing too, I’ve seen Linux Magazine use them several times.

CPT exam tomorrow

I have my exam in CPT tomorrow — Thomas and I have been practicing all day and it have really helped. So I now feel pretty confident that I know what I need to know about commitment schemes, zero-knowledge interactive proof systems and arguments, Σ-protocols, electronic voting, electronic cash, and secure multiparty computations. That was the six exam topics :-)

By the way, I believe Rune is still accepting bets in the Exam Game

Running out of Internet :-(

StofaNet at the limit! Mikkel is going to love this… :-)

It seems that Stéphanie and I will be running out of bandwidth in a week or so… We only have 10 GB/month, and we’ve already used up 6 GB in the first 11 days. When we hit the bandwidth cap we can buy extra capacity at the hefty price of 0.10 DKK/MB (about 1.5 €-cent or 2 $-cent). Ugh!

We’ll probably have to upgrade our subscription for next month to the 4 Mib line with 20 GB/month bandwidth. That would cost us 400 DKK/month compared to 350 DKK/month right now, so it’s actually quite a good deal. The problem is that it might not work — twice the bandwidth, but also twice the speed… We’ll see how it goes.
