Got me reminiscent of a client that we needed data off. As part of some archaic business process by them they had to encrypt the data they sent to us.

So we wait a good 24 hours wondering where it is. So were just playing nethack to pass the time. Someones already made their base in Minetown.

Finally we get an email. With two attachments and 1 line in the email.

Attach #1: data.zip.enc
Attach #2: data.key
Line: keypasswordincleartext

Mozilla just laid off 70 fantastic people. If you can help them - open positions, offering helpful conversations and references, anything else - please say so.

Use #MozillaLifeboat as an umbrella tag for easy finding. (It's already flowing on the birdsite.)

If you've been affected, I'm happy to chat directly. Also have some open positions (see rest of this thread). But doesn't have to be today - take time to recover if you can.

Most of all: thank you folks for making the web better.
