A Who’s Who Guide to ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’
BBC Blogs- America - almost 5 years
The cast of 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' - including Bill Nighy (left) Dame Judi Dench (center), Dev Patel (6th left) and Celia Imrue (right) arriving for the UK premiere. (Yui Mok/AP Images) How many recognizable British stars, senior division, can you cram into one movie? The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel manages to feature more than a half dozen, and since most of these stars are getting on in years, better to praise them now rather than wait. The movie is a fun romp about a group of English geezers who move to a dilapidated hotel in Jaipur, India in hopes of living more cheaply in retirement. It opens today (Friday, May 4). Its impressive cast includes Dames Maggie Smith and Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Penelope Wilton, Bill Nighy and Celia Imrie. (As a bonus, Julie Christie puts in a brief appearance near the end.) At the opposite end of the age curve is Dev Patel, the young Anglo-Indian actor who became a star in Slumdog Millionaire. In Marigold Hotel, he plays an ambi ...

IT engineers ponder fix to dangerous Internet routing problem
Tweak Town - almost 5 years
While it's great that the internet is an open, widely available network, this openness yields some security flaws. Most have been dealt with by encryption and other security measures, but one gaping hole remains unfixed. This major hole can cause massive, widespread outages or allow your data to be snooped on.     The problem resides in the routers used by every corporation or company who owns a block of IPs. These routers are constantly communicating with other routers in order to update internal information. This internal information, some 400,000 entries, contains the best routes to get to other networks using a protocol called Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).   According to InfoWorld, "BGP enables routers to find the best path when, say, a network used to retrieve a web page from South Korea is not working properly. Changes in that routing information are distributed quickly to routers around the world in as few as five minutes."   The flaw resides in the fact that the r ...

Golf boys overcome nasty conditions
Hometown Source - almost 5 years
FL earns pair of runner-up finishes The Forest Lake boys’ golf team is two meets into the season and it has two runner-up finishes under its belt. The results are especially encouraging considering each event had a field of 20 teams. Most recently, the Rangers came up seven shots shy of champion Hastings at the Blaine Invitational at TPC Twin Cities this Monday. Forest Lake shot 335, finishing directly in front of Section 7AAA rivals Elk River (338) and Andover (340). Section member Duluth East took fifth with 344 strokes. On a day in which baseball and softball games were postponed, the golfers played on through hostile conditions. “We weren’t able to dodge the doubles, triples and quads in the wind, sleet, snow and in the ’20s wind chill,” said coach John Buck. Only four golfers in the whole field broke 80. Osseo’s Dalton Charboneau took medalist honors with a six-over round of 78. Forest Lake junior Trevor Thompson tied for eighth with 81. Senior Taylor Bisbee carded 83. ...
