Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.
We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.
The snark is back! New version of MST3K is coming back to television!
It sounds too good to be true, but the Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew is coming back to television. It’s about time.
Zap2it is reporting that National Geographic is prepping three episodes from the guys of RiffTrax, which is the online snark track project the MST3K stars put together after the show was cancelled (for the last time) in 1999. The episodes will feature the ole’ gang: Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy (as Tom Servo) and Bill Corbett (as Crow T. Robot).
Dubbed Total Riff Off, the special will find the gang poking fun at National Geographic programming and footage of animals. A little outside their typical wheelhouse, admittedly, but it could be fun. The episodes are reportedly dubbed “Pig Love,” “Demon Bat,” and “Badass Dino Bird.” So, take from that what you will.
Though National Geographic is an admittedly strange landing spot for RiffTrax, the network has been branching out with its programming like most cable nets, and RiffTrax definitely brings some geek cachet. Here’s hoping we’re on the verge of a snarky renaissance.
The three episode special is set to debut on April 1. So, make a note to set your DVR accordingly.
Could this be?! Could this really be????
We have a toxic relationship with failure. From an early age, we are taught in school that mistakes are bad. Mistakes on papers and tests are marked with a red pen and points are taken off. As a result, school teaches us to avoid mistakes rather than to make mistakes and then learn from them.
Failures are actually brilliant opportunities to learn. It is often easier to diagnose what went wrong after a failure than to figure out the key elements that lead to a success. By avoiding failure, then, we are removing an important tool from our mental toolbox.
