Maybe I shouldn't have heard of Murphy's law, because ever since I heard about it, I will get extremely paranoids about any potential bad situation, even a small one
The A380 is ahead of its time. With the resilient passenger traffic growth for times to come (reference from Airbus's Global Market Forecast), plus congested airports, the A380 could not be ignored.

By any chance if you have Instagram, please drop a follow on @rv_aviation02 and if you have Twitter, please drop a follow on @vhaq_aero. Appreciate that!

That part of getting older where I would rather munch on a bag of carrots at 11pm than that box full of brownies I got.

Somebody somewhere got a hold of the password I used for several of my social and media accounts and started logging into Twitter, Hulu, Spotify, and Twitch. All sites that use a certain e-mail address as the sign-in name. I was lucky to catch them as they were happening, no serious damage seems to have been done. I went through and changed passwords to pretty much every account I have that I wouldn't want to lose. I've also started setting up two-factor authentication for the sites that have that option.

All of this leads to my thought of the day. Your data isn't really safe. Two-factor authentication goes through a service that can be compromised. Password managers can be compromised. Far too many sites that operate using financial information (Hulu, CBS, Pandora, etc.) do not have two-factor authentication as far as I can tell. Am I any safer now than I was before this happened?
