My education is in Computer Network Technologies. I use my free thought, when any thoughts are present, to write and produce content in a wide spectrum format flow. One day I may explain a method for accomplishing a task on a BSD operating system, or spewing about my latest Sandalwood acquisition, and other times I will keep my thoughts I put to the screen more personal and opinionated with my current gush of text in relation to my tempered mood.

Geeky, Funny & Strange
One should not doubt the intellect of animals - this intellect may not coincide along the lines of your best interest. Take a squirrel for instance; you mostly see them testing the relationship boundaries between humans and their like, but if you think about it, those damn four legged creatures limp up to you for a peanut with acts of fear every time and never adapt friendly during all those wasted years spent perched a park bench with free food that is frankly rather tasty to us two-legged kind alike. I can get a goldfish to eat out of my hands after a short amount work so why does a squirrel still hesitate? Because you otherwise wouldn't be offering the nut - squirrels are not cute.
This particular evil four legged squirrel shown in the video hijacks an airplane, takes flight, maneuvering loopies, dives, and bombs, without any fear and strangely somewhat opposite, with great joy. For the kick out of feeding a squirrel a few nuts, let it be known that the four legged would carry a heavy bag load from our side if they did not find us humans so greatly amusing themselves.
I was digging through some archives and found the PHP source code for the article published as "Simple Authentication using a Variable Length Random Challenge" found at http://myspew.com/projects/simple-authentication-using-a-variable-length-random-challenge
The code is from 2005 and is available here: Simple Authentication

The Rosetta spacecraft is set to wake up after three years in hibernation as it continues to move towards a joining concert with Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. After nearly 10 years traveling the stars, the components traveling with Rosetta will gently warm and progressively put itself into a state of function as the ship adjusts its antenna trajectory towards earth using a star map and a little luck. In the process of finding Earth, a speckle of sand at roughly 500 million miles away, Rosetta will adjust for optimal solar panel exposure to get a little sun, and make a weekend morning for waking up with the only task of sending a carrier signal in our direction and soak up energizing rays.
The mission is the first of our kind - travel great lengths to orbit a strange asteroid that may be remnants from the creation of our little pocket in space, and eventually lower a robot onto the surface to further examine this existence from both touch and observation. It has just a small trek until the time it reaches Comet 67P in August of this year compared to the total time of journey it has completed thus far.
- Rosetta will be the first spacecraft to orbit a comet's nucleus.
- It will be the first spacecraft to fly alongside a comet as it heads towards the inner Solar System.
- Rosetta will be the first spacecraft to examine from close proximity how a frozen comet is transformed by the warmth of the Sun.
- Shortly after its arrival at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the Rosetta orbiter will dispatch a robotic lander for the first controlled touchdown on a comet nucleus.
- The Rosetta lander's instruments will obtain the first images from a comet's surface and make the first in situ analysis to find out what it is made of.
- On its way to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, Rosetta will pass through the main asteroid belt, with the option to be the first European close encounter with one or more of these primitive objects.
- Rosetta will be the first spacecraft ever to fly close to Jupiter's orbit using solar cells as its main power source.
At 10:00 GMT this morning the alarm clock will awaken the mission, heating its components, testing with checks and balances. Any anomaly will take a step back to the previous QOS (quality of service) check on the payload and then continue once again until its only mission for now, send a simple carrier signal in our direction, is completed. If no signal is received on Earth, the ESA will attempt communication from the ground on Tuesday. Monitors on several continents of our planet are expecting to hear Rosetta yawn by 18:30 GMT.
To follow the ESA operations, The Guardian has a live Blog trickling with images and updates as information flows in. A live video feed from the European Space Agency Operations Center may be the way to go for joining in the excitement of contact in real-time, as we all hope will be the case. In addition to the control room footage, interviews and presentations will be played throughout the day.

Tis the season for drunks and nuts. If you had a girlfriend or boyfriend in 2013, 2014 may be lacking if you joined in the new year celebrations together. In general this may be short lived. However, if the strike of midnight brought upon the black eye and massive hangover like it did for this evil four legged squirrel, your bed may be as cold as a squirrel's ass. Never mingle with a squirrel's ex.
Random thought...  Happy New Year!

If you are repeatedly running your portable electronics dry of precious battery life, a portable battery pack might be the pick-me-up your gadgets need while away from an electrical outlet. The UNU Enerpak Extreme (UNU-EP-02-14000BS) is one hell of a deal on Newegg.com if you are in need of high capacity portable power.
This portable batter boasts a 14,000 mAh lithium polymer battery good for at least 500 full charges. It is able to charge both small electronics such as smartphones and large gadgets such as tablets using either the 1 amp or the 2.1 amp USB charging ports.
The UNU battery pack can be fully charged in 8 to 10 hours. The device has 3 LED lights indicating the amount of power available: LED (1) 5% ~ 33%, LED (2) 33% ~ 66%, LED (3) 66% ~ 100%. The battery pack is charged using a micro USB cable that may be plugged into any USB power source such as a computer or an AC adapter. An AC adapter is not included with the device though the UNU does provide a charging cable.
The control button for the UNU is located on the side of the device. Pressing this button once will turn on the device and provide USB power to both the 1 and 2.1 amp ports. Pressing the button twice will turn on its integrated LED flashlight (great for camping). The device will power off after 1 minute when their are no devices attached or the attached devices are not drawing power.
I was able to charge two cell phones and several e-cig batteries non stop for 4 days including night time smartphone stand-by with power still remaining. It is capable of fully charging an iPhone 5 to 7 times. In addition, the UNU battery able to keep a smartphone charged in standby mode for 1,700 hours or more. To note, the 1 amp port is designed to be greatly more efficient than the 2.1 amp port if you need to prolong the life of reserve power.
This portable battery is a bit larger and heavier than others on the market, however it provides more push than these alternatives. You may still be able to fit it in your pocket, but wear a belt. I would consider the UNU battery a base station so to speak. The 14,000 mAh battery capacity reflects its size and weight respectively.
