Homebrew: Colorado entrepreneur steps out of the hack-for-hire closet

Hack job

Need a hacker? Check out hackerslist.com. For months, this hacker-for-hire site has been shrouded in mystery, but the wizard just stepped out from behind the curtain, and it turns out to be Colorado tech entreprenuer Charles Tendell, reports The Gazette.

Glass houses

The story of the shattered windows gets a fuller treatment from The Coloradoan: In April, according to reporter Jason Pohl, Weld County Sheriffs “tallied 22 incidents involving shattered or broken vehicle windows. Sixteen of those incidents were due to rocks, road debris, excessive vibration or temperature changes… Of the six other incidents, two involved shots fired by a BB gun at vehicles not on highways or freeways and one was traced to a ‘wrist rocket-style slingshot’ along Interstate 25. Two more stemmed from ‘unconfirmed incidents of weapons discharged along Colorado Highway 14.’” There is much speculation but, so far, no credible links have been reported connecting the incidents.

Melting down

Think climate change is a joke? Up, down and all around, the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica is thinning, says a new report co-authored by a CU Boulder researcher. Via The Denver Post.

Cop watch

On the whole, this would be good news: “Fort Collins’ new police officers will face more intense psychological screening and background checks after officer Jarrett Branson’s stalking conviction, said Chief John Hutto.” Via The Coloradan

Water meter

Rain kept falling, rivers kept rising, crucial state alarm gauges kept failing. “Missing the live information on water levels… raised concerns about the state’s ability to anticipate flooding and likely harm to roads, housing, farms and industrial facilities. Local authorities said they rely on foothills water data when deciding whether to evacuate.” Via The Coloradan.

Show time

Looking forward to basking in the moonlight while watching classic movies and listening to local bands? Red Rocks’ Film Under the Stars schedule is out, and summer is looking good. Via Hey Reverb.
