    Well, so long as we have that newfangled hyper-threading it should be golden, right?

    I wonder if it is actually related to the Steam incident or if that is just an example to set the scene.

    and eventually, someone fixed it ... by making sure to spin up a new thread before calling GetUser

    A truly :wtf: fix for a truly :wtf: situation :rolleyes:

    "Boring stuff here" ...

    I am reading that as though it is an actual comment included in the code that Belle inherited, in which case it gives one a wonderful opportunity to rant and rage against the sort of academic airhead Dunning-Kruger rejects whose Barbie dolls quack at them "Math is boring. Let's go shopping!"

    Thinking's boring, skool's boring, education's boring, learning what ADHD stands for is boring, everything's boring except the exploits of the Kardashians.

    Talking of which, Mummy Kardashian had a scare the other week when she was subject to a blackmail threat. Apparently someone had got hold of pictures of her, bare, taken when she was changing in her closet. This is wrong on so many levels you'd need an elevator to comprehend them all, but the chief WTFs here to my mind are:

    a) What on earth is she doing with cameras in her closet? What possible security violation are they supposed to catch? Are her children in the habit of raiding the rags she drapes over her scrawny body? If so, WHY?

    b) Having established that, okay, she does indeed have cameras in her closet, how on earth can someone from outside get hold of the pictures that have been taken while she was within? (For a start, does she not know how to turn the cameras off while she's changing?) Is it that the video feed is stored in the Cloud? If so, who's in charge of this aspect of security?

    c) Okay, now we've answered the question of how someone's managed to get hold of these pics, the next question to be asked is: who on earth is going to be interested in looking at pictures of her ugly carcas in the first place?

    Work is boring.

    This is quite clearly the same type of error as the Steam incident, but if it is the exact same company, it was anon'd well enough before submission that I can't tell :)

    It wouldn't be a problem if the thread-local cache was unbound when the session ceased to be bound to the thread. Except then you'd be using thread-local storage for no good reason at all. (Also, I suspect there's places in the guts of major frameworks that are almost this bad, though not with user session identification, thank god!)

    That was "logic," and changing programming logic belonged to the team that wrote the code: offshore.

    This is the reason websites typically don't display the full card number, even when you're logged in.
