Another Wednesday came and went, and with it another episode of Claims of the Normal!
This week, our main news story on the Woes and Winnings of the World was all about The SOEpocalypse! Non-US credit card details appear to have been kept on an outdated database, and are thus the only ones stolen. Arkenor’s secondary account was affected and he is not best pleased. According to some media sources, the service will be down ‘till Friday, possibly longer (link)
About 12,700 credit or debit card numbers, along with expiration dates, belonging to people outside the United States may have been stolen along with 10,700 direct debit records of customers in Austria, Germany, Netherlands, and Spain.
From The Wired and Wonderful this week, we had this:
- Double Entendre Identification gets a scholarly grant. (link)
- International Star Wars day sees all movies finally coming on in a Blu-Ray box set with over 40 hours of special features. There are commentaries on each disc plus a host of new documentaries about the films. (link)
- Teefury had a competition that auto-sent a twitter-message from your account to @nerdist and @wilw. It was not appreciated by the two of them… Don’t be dicks, Teefury.
- Petter has finished Portal 2. What to say without spoiling the crap out of it? Was it good or not? :)
Last, but not least, an exciting general nerd trivia round with questions about Dune, Star Trek, Star Wars and comics saw another exciting result! Listen in and enjoy!
