San Francisco

So today being Saturday, the start of the long Labour Day weekend in the US, we made our first proper trip out somewhere to San Francisco as the title kind of gives away!

We had to change the rental car this morning because Hertz where charging a $25 per day young driver excess so we picked up a new car from Enterprise in San Jose Airport and then drive in convoy to San Francisco Airport to drop off the old car, the old car being a Pontiac G6 which was pretty nice in exchange for the new Ford Fusion, although it’s nothing like the Ford Fusion on sale in the UK.

San Jose Here We Are

So we flew out of Heathrow Terminal 5 on Sunday at about 2pm, landed at San Francisco about 4.45pm, 8hrs behind UK time after a traumatic demon child filled 10hr flight here, but that said the flight was great. We flew British Airways on a 747 which was an experience being on something that big, and I have to say I was most impressed by their in flight entertainment service which was an on-demand video, music and TV service meaning we could watch what we wanted when we wanted and it worked really well. I’d love to know what they had running that for a media server because it must have had a hell of a lot of horsepower under the bonnet!

DNS Exploit Now Officially Breeched

Recently a DNS exploit was discovered by Dan Kaminsky. This exploit was reportedly so big that he decided to keep the details close to hand until everyone had a chance to plug their DNS servers, however this plan failed somewhat and details of it got online.

Whilst most people fixed their DNS some major players like AT&T and Apple are still yet to fix the issue, and the first released reports of the exploit being performed came to light today.

Whilst there are incidents prior to this known by Dan Kaminsky he has signed NDA’s to keep the details quiet.

Lets hope people start to look more seriously at fixing this one huh.
