Dickie's Quickies

Just a couple today. Yesterday I got a phishing email. Allegedly it was from my bank and it was asking me to update my address. It was a pretty good copy, but I could tell that it wasn't my bank who sent it. This began me wondering what to do in such instances. First thing that I did was report it to the bank. Second thing I did was report it to a new service called PIRT (Phishing Incident Reporting Termination). PIRT is a cooperative effort between Castle Cops and Sunbelt to try and shut down phishing operations as they arise.

The Stranger has a good article on the killing of 7 people at a party in Seattle this weekend. It's a good piece of writing and reporting.
