Cup of warm strong coffee, organic half and half, brown sugar. Cool morning, first cool one since I returned here from AZ. I clipped the grape and wisteria vines back from the deck already, as I've been working on kayaks out there and the tendrils are a bother. The spiders will hopefully recede a bit also, now that there is less to attach to. I ate one egg a la Bill (on a corn tort with cheese, green onion and garlic) and am saving the other one for dinner. My appetite has been almost gone in the hot weather, but the coolness incited me to cook eggs.

An anonymous reader writes "A message saying 'I just got the Dislike
button, so now I can dislike all of your dumb posts lol!!' is spreading
rapidly on Facebook, tempting unsuspecting users into believing that they
will be able to "dislike" posts as well as "like" them. However,
[0]security researchers say that it is just the latest 'survey scam',
tricking Facebook users into into giving a rogue Facebook application
permission to access their profile, and posting spam messages from their
account. The rogue application requires victims to complete an online
survey (which makes money for the scammers) before ultimately redirecting
to a Firefox browser add-on for a Facebook dislike button developed by
FaceMod. "As far as we can tell, FaceMod aren't connected with the scam —
their browser add-on is simply being used as bait," says Sophos security
blogger Graham Cluley."
