Lumpy’s Links for 2015.12.20
Here they are:
- Ludicrous – While a 19 year old hacking an airline to commit 150,000 dolars of fraud may not be ludicrous, the fact that “he hack was not highly sophisticated and was a result of a loophole in the airline’s computer system"
- Useful – For you Windows users a list of 2015’s most popular Windows downloads
- Music – This week, I am going to mention Victory Kicks, a London-based indie alternative band witha great sound. They also offer their 7 release discogrophy at 50% off!
- Photo – Fish-eye View of Gemini North Telescope
- Yours (Something tweeted to me, shared on FaceBook, or emailed)- The West Jet Christmas Miracle from Dick Debartello on Facebook. (Yeah, that is the Giz Wiz and Mad Writer.) Be sure to check out the video after the break. The five and a half minute video is entertaining and touching.
- Science – The long delayed DSCOVR satellite is sending back amazing images
With only 5 days to Christmas, I thought some of you might like to know about the Santa Tracker
