re: Lollipop frustration - Korkstand
[quote]It's the opposite, IMO. [/quote]Well, I'm sorry that you are of that opinion. [quote]Native functionality for exchange is about as basic as you can get in terms of expectation. For 6 years my native exchange has worked virtually impeccably. I'm struggling to see what the upside is to taking...

re: 100K Net Worth - Korkstand
[quote]The bank owns the house if you still owe $180k on it.[/quote]Uh no. I owe money on my house, but it's mine. I own it. I can sell it and collect the proceeds, the bank can't. The bank owns my debt, not my house. My house is my asset, my debt is the bank's asset. [quote]Honestly wtf am I readi...

re: 100K Net Worth - Korkstand
[quote]Haha. That's the problem with people. Your net worth isn't 100k if you just put down money to take on more debt. Nice try![/quote][quote][u]Put another way, net worth is what is owned minus what is owed.[/u][/quote]Do you not understand the part that you underlined yourself? If he put 20k dow...

[quote]Why eliminate customization from the native app. Why force me into something 3rd party?[/quote]I think the point is to eliminate complexity and smooth over the whole experience. This leads to fewer bugs, which is good for everyone, and those who want the customization and/or complexity can st...

re: Question about Gmail security - Korkstand
[quote]It's just crazy to me that this (seemingly) has never happened. [/quote]Well, there are a lot of ways to minimize the chances of someone stealing data, even internally. I said that "anyone with the [b]necessary[/b] access", which would probably mean admin or "root" privileges. Very, very few ...

re: Question about Gmail security - Korkstand
And I guess I will explain password hashing (and salting) a little bit more. Have you ever downloaded a large file, and were provided with an MD5 sum? It just looks like a long string of nonsense characters. Anyway, MD5 is just one of many hash algorithms, and what they do is take an input file ...

re: Question about Gmail security - Korkstand
[quote]So in plain English...is that identical to them having your password?[/quote]No. Storing a hash of a password is not enough to be able to login to an account normally. You need the actual password, which Google doesn't have. [quote]Do they even need your password to access your account?[/qu...

[quote]Has there ever been a known case of a person's entire Gmail account being "leaked"?
