So I’ve been playing around with one of those recent Facebook features. That’s called “Did You Know?” aka Fun Facts.
I kept tapping on “New Question” most of the time because I wasn’t sure what to do with the most. You really need to think more than twice before posting anything on social media these days. Some questions like “A flaw of mine…” are too dangerous to answer unless you’re being sarcastic or posting some smart answer. Also, I my gut feeling tells me that Facebook may use some of the intelligence gathered through fun facts for targeted advertising and marketing. Who wants to be a target, eh?

I screwed it up again.
I logged into one of my e-mail accounts from a shared computer owned by someone else. This is something I never do (unless there’s a top urgency) because I fear keyloggers. So now, time has come to change the passwords. Next factor of two factor authentication will keep me protected, but still need to fix the first factor.

These days I’m working on a JIRA project which may require working with XML backups and project import tool. The JIRA instance I’m currently working on has over one million issues in thousands of projects (including defunct) – that collectively make the XML backup gigantic.
