The New Linux Encoder Ransomware And Rising Data Hostage Crisis
By firstname.lastname@example.org (ScriptRock) on 2015-11-18
At the start of the year, the FBI issued an alert warning internet users about the rising threat of ransomware, detailing its dramatic increase in both frequency and sophistication. Looks like the feds were on point: as it stands, 2015 has turned out to be a record year for data hostage-taking. So what can be done to defend oneself against this new insidious threat to data sovereignty?
Second installment of refactoring code into data
I now move onto the second, more awkward, section of the imperative code to refactor to an adaptive model. This shows how I need to massage both the imperative code to make it fit the model's structure better, and the model to support more capabilities. I then finish by comparing the imperative and active model approaches.

Updating Our Search Quality Rating Guidelines
By Google Webmaster Central (firstname.lastname@example.org) on 2015-11-19
Developing algorithmic changes to search involves a process of experimentation. Part of that experimentation is having evaluators—people who assess the quality of Google’s search results—give us feedback on our experiments. Ratings from evaluators do not determine individual site rankings, but are used help us understand our experiments. The evaluators base their ratings on guidelines we give them; the guidelines reflect what Google thinks search users want.
In 2013, we published our human rating guidelines to provide transparency on how Google works and to help webmasters understand what Google looks for in web pages. Since that time, a lot has changed: notably, more people have smartphones than ever before and more searches are done on mobile devices today than on computers.
We often make changes to the guidelines as our understanding of what users wants evolves, but we haven’t shared an update publicly since then. However, we recently completed a major revision of our rater guidelines to adapt to this mobile world, recognizing that people use search differently when they carry internet-connected devices with them all the time. You can find that update here (PDF).
This is not the final version of our rater guidelines. The guidelines will continue to evolve as search, and how people use it, changes. We won’t be updating the public document with every change, but we will try to publish big changes to the guidelines periodically.
Lightroom Lua script to select a repeating annual date range
I need to find all the photos that I've taken in November over the last few years. I can't express this query easily in Lightroom, so I figured out how to write a Lua script that would make this query. These notes describe what I did, as someone who had never before programmed with Lua, nor used the scripting environment in Lightroom.
