On the first day of Christmas my fandom gave to me....  Jack O'Neill and team, all gift-wrapped and under my synthetic and gaudily decorated tree!

Yes, folks, it's that time of the year.  Well... almost.  In the lead up to the day where the jolly old guy gets himself all choked up on soot and stuffed on cookies and milk, we at Debrief HQ decided we would get the celebrations started by putting together a special holiday debrief newsletter. 

Queue carolers.

This newsletter, which will be unparalleled in the amount of decorative skill two fandom artists can put together, will be released on Christmas eve.   Now, before you all get think-y on us and state the obvious-- that your awesome debrief-ers live in a time zone far, far away-- we promise to bend our nintendos, practice some string theory and jump through a time-dilation field to US time!
Now, what is this all about?  I'm glad you asked.  Between now and Christmas eve, we would like you to post any SG1 Christmas stories you might have (your own or rec if someone elses) or artwork or vids or.... anything Christmas and fandom related.  New or old.  Fluffy, cheesy, angsty.  Any genre, any rating... any candy cane in a snow storm.  All entries will appear in the weekly debrief, but will then be compiled into a special Christmas edition.

Let's make this year a very merry SG1 Christmas for everyone!

Hi all,

Today another SSL vulnerability was announced. This one is named POODLE and is, while serious, much less serious than the Heartbleed event from some months ago.

Unfortunately, the only real way to fix the problem is to disable something called "SSLv3" entirely. Basically, this means that we instruct our servers that they are no longer allowed to speak version 3 of the SSL protocol (you can think of it as a language -- we ban this language from our servers). It turns out this is generally OK since most browsers don't actually speak using SSLv3 these days -- you actually use what's called TLS, which is a more modern, better way of protecting the stuff you send across the Internet.

The SSLv3 protocol is actually around 15 years old at this point, and TLS has been out so long that nearly every browser out there supports it. However, shutting off SSLv3 does mean that very old browsers -- IE6, for one -- can no longer talk to Dreamwidth using encryption. In this case, since the encryption wouldn't actually mean anything, we think it's better to not even pretend that it works.

I will be making this change sometime in the next hour or three. This really should impact almost none of you, but there might be one or two and, in that case, I'm sorry. We think it's better to do this so you know you're not actually secure than to let Dreamwidth pretend to be secure.

Edit: This has been deployed. SSLv3 is disabled on Dreamwidth.

Comments and questions welcome, as always!
