I was coding an elegant solution for a redirect script that required my normal coding stack: HTML5, CSS, PHP, jQuery, MySQL, MSSQL. More than often I may refer to or get a random musing on an premiere SQL solution. An like always, the stack to the rescue.

I read an article on slashdot this morning. It was about the new authors/coders of a tool that would act similar to SnapChat. The premise seems legitimate, however we live in a digital world.

And do we think that even though data will be deleted after a duration, can it still not be captured and cracked? Also, do we trust that these companies are actually 'purging' our data?

Updated! from Slashdot:


It has only been recent that articles have been flowing on Netflix's slowdown on major internet providers. Truthfully, this has been happening much longer. I can tell you Netflix has been slowed down over a year ago.
