Yesterday our boss stopped by and was spreading the panic that someone in our security department started about the Acrobat 8.1.3 update. According to the release notes it addresses a number of vulnerabilities and Adobe classifies the update as "critical".

Early Friday afternoon I received a political robocall. I hate telemarketing of any kind, especially on my mobile phone. I don't pay for my phone so that you can advertise your products or opinions at your convenience.

Within a few minutes I Twittered a few details more to vent than anything else: "Received political robocall from R.T. Rybak, mayor of Minneapolis, MN. Caller ID just showed 224. He is now on my shit list."
