Heartbleed!  Heartbleed!  Heartbleed!

Nope, no Great Old Ones have risen from the depths and begun to expose  
humanity to unimaginable horrors.  Maybe if I try again with the word  
"Hastur"... [*]

Heartbleed was bad, yes.  However, it's hard for me to believe it's  
"far more severe than most people think."  Being able to read 64k  
chunks out of server memory at-will and on-demand by exploiting  
commonly-used software is already a Chernobyl-level disaster.  Really,  
how's it going to get worse?

If it starts replacing my Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban with Black Velvet,  
okay, then it'll be time to scream, wail and grieve.  But until then,  
let's keep our heads, let's face the future with a smile, let's not  
panic, and let's not think the GnuPG list is censoring anything that  
contains the word 'Heartbleed'.

Now, if you'll forgive me, there's a Great Old One I've been trying to awaken.

Hastur!  Hastur!  Hast--*urgkl* *thud*

[*] if this makes no sense to you, go read some H.P. Lovecraft's _The  
Whisperer in Darkness_.  :)
