Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

2007: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5105#section-7

The concept of the validation token may be useful in other registry-type applications where the proof of an underlying right is a condition for a valid registration.

An example is a Top Level Domain (TLD) where registration is subject to proof of some precondition, like a trade mark or the right in a name. Such situations often arise during the introduction of a new TLD, e.g., during a “sunrise” phase.

I thought the IETF discouraged re-inventing the wheel?

History and future of copyright

I’ve written on the subject of copyright and the upheaval in that space before. Here is a very good contribution to that discussion, from medieval Ireland to file-sharing: https://www.australianbookreview.com.au/feature-articles/1295-344-features-rubinstein

Adobe Flash Updates

Today we’ve seen yet another Adobe Flash Player update due to serious problems. So be it.

One thing always sets my teeth on edge when doing/verifying it: The number of clicks it takes me to check the version of the currently running Flash plugin. It would be far too simple if the download page (which is prominently linked everywhere) would just tell me if I need to upgrade. No, I have to click on “Learn more about Flash Player”, then “Product Page”, then “FAQ”, then scroll down to “How can I tell if I have the latest version of Flash Player installed and whether it is working correctly?”, click to reveal the answer, then click “Testing page”.

And then I have to manually compare the version shown above with the latest version listed by operating system and browser beneath.

What the fscking hell is Adobe thinking? They’ve been a top reason for PC infections for the last years (Flash + Acrobat) and still they don’t tell their web-visitors as quickly and efficiently whether they need to update.

Can someone please administer the necessary clues with a suitable LART?

I had no part in building this one: all credits go to Clemens.
