Www that’s the coolest license plate Magoo has ever seen except for Magoo’s license plate which sez “Magoo”. Magoo.

You said you were taking a break for the summer and possibly for good.

By no metric is summer over and I will take this moment to reiterate my request for you to take the option of dropping this annoying persona permanently.

Reminds me of this one I had seen a few years ago in my neighborhood

For a more local reference, who has IHTFP?

Up Mass Ave a bit, 1636 was grabbed by said university's president.

What about all the insecure license plates like HTTP, FTP, TELNET, and WEP?'

IHTFP is a 2008 Mazda Miata.

NULL is a 2012 Chevy Volt.

EMAIL is most likely the INVENTOR OF EMAIL™ SENATOR SHIVA AYYADURAI

Jesus wasn't all that practical. His feeding-the-multitude method, for example, has failed in many subsequent trials.

Used on the Web to encrypt traffic between you and a Web site, so that even if somebody intercepts it, they can't read it (think about making a credit-card purchase over the Web while somebody is tapping into your communications at your favorite cafe).

In more detail.

Unencrypted data can be caught in transit and easily read. While seeing your credit card number or bank details would be horrible, so would seeing the sorts of websites you go to or what your private emails say. With access to enough web traffic you'd know a lot about a person.

Additionally, if I can read your web traffic, I can also manipulate it. Now, I can do a "man in the middle" style attack where I make your browser say or do whatever I want even though you were just trying to load a news website. And the best part is you'll blame that site not knowing it was me in the middle. That's why HTTPS is the recommended mode over HTTP for pretty much any web traffic these days, even UHub (as Adam knows).

HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure.

It's the standard for transferring what makes websites display the way they are intended within your browser.

The Secure means the data is encrypted in transit across the network.

Adam should put an alert or dibs on GNOMES whenever someone lets go of it.

He should probably ask for DRUPAL first.
