    Canada's government shut down our CRS (Canadian Revenue Service) because of it and they're saying that it could be down till the weekend and it's tax return time. Hope they extend the deadline.

    That's the point. IN German news they stress the point that it was a German programmer who made the mistake leading to the bug. This is to counter the assumption that the NSA was responsible...

    This site was not affected by this problem. So no need for password resets here unless you used the same password elsewhere on a compromised site.

    Hi Russ, glad to see you are still around...sadly so many of my old buddies have mostly come and gone including me for a long spell. Time to make a few more. Still a beautiful site. Good work my friend.

    Hi, yes, I'm very much still here...right now just bogged down in quite a bit of unreleased work...which can make it appear that I have vanished as I tend to focus on the current task at hand.
