    Facebook is one of my contracts, security is tougher than NASA. Which I work at constantly. The campus in Menlo Park is pretty cool.

    pretty sure the NSA doesn't work in php. probably c++. i wonder what they use for their databases. could be fun working on their stuff, although not sure i like the idea of govt pay grades.

    Somehow they can capture all Internet traffic now and store it.

    facebook is all C++ as well. php is only at the very edge of the presentation layer.

    there were some interesting slides which sort of hinted at what the NSA was using for data analysis . . . it looked like they were using in-memory nosql databases heavily. and yes, they don't pay for crap. you can (or could) make decent money there as a contract employee working for a third party like Northrop but those days may be ending soon.

    I remember about 6 mos ago, the rest of the world wanted the us to give up control of the internet & we were all worried for censorshjp reasons...we now know that will never happen.

    FB keeps prompting me lately to add my phone number.

    Fuck that shit.

    I'd give it to all of you crazy-ass motherfuckers, before I'd put it on Facebook. :no:
