Friday Squid Blogging: A Marine Biologist Comments on "Pirates of the Caribbean"

It's got squid:

Danna: As you can imagine, I was pleased with the strong cephalopod theme.

Charles: I thought you might be upset by the reinforcement of negative squid stereotypes.

Danna: This might be another "take what I can get" moment. I was somewhat upset that the Kraken had all those teeth instead of a beak, though.

Charles: Well, lots of teeth are scarier.

Danna: I'd have to disagree, having spent a couple of weeks getting very personal with jumbo squid beaks. They're very, very sharp.

Charles: I'll take your word for it. I've never been personal with a squid before.

Danna: That's probably just as well. Ink and mucus isn't for everyone.

Not completely related to the story ... LOL

I read your latest crypto-gram (as always), where you stated that your wifi network is ultra-secure - as related to the news story at cnet news, where it said that your network was totally open.

Didn't you just mean that layer2 access to your wifi was open, but any traffic coming into or out of the wifi network is appropriately logged and filtered ?
