Random Pagan Verse:
To avoid being discovered, choose your working tools to be ordinary items which you would have around the house. Make your Pentacles out of wax so that you
can break and melt them at once. Do not keep a sword unless its presence would alarm no-one. Have no signs or names visible on anything. Write the signs in ink or water immediately
before consecrating the tool and wash them off immediately after. Do not engrave anything, for this will only help you be discovered. Keep your athame and kerfan (working knife)
among your kitchen knives, and let the colors of the hilts determine the one from the other and from the other knives. Always remember that we are the Hidden Children of the Goddess. Never do
anything to disgrace the Craft or Her -- never boast, never threaten, and never say that you wish ill of anyone.

MIT researcher Leaked Copy-Pasting Google Search URLs

MIT researcher has uncovered a privacy hole in Google's search engine, one that inadvertently leaks a user's previous search query if he copy-pastes his current search results URL and shares it with someone else.

The one that came across over this issue is Jeremy Rubin, founder of Tidbit, technical director at the MIT Bitcoin Project, and founder and senior technical advisor for the Digital Currency Initiative @ MIT Media Lab.

Mr. Rubin first noticed something wrong when he received a copy-pasted Google search URL from one of his friends. The URL in question had the following pattern:

https://www.google.com/search?q=first+search&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#q=second+search

Apparently, Google was storing the last two search queries in the parameters shown in the user's browser.
