Low-level password protection

QT:{{”
You set up two pages (e.g., page.html and protectpage.html). page.html has the javascript code snippet within the tags. protectpage.html has the protected information. If someone enters the correct password — ‘letmein’ in the example — the protected page opens in a new browser window.

Of course, the password is identifiable by viewing page source. Also, a webcrawling bot will probably index or scrape protectpage.html at some point.

Anything more sophisticated is challenging.

Tabula Muris is a compendium of single cell transcriptome data from the model organism Mus musculus, containing nearly 100,000 cells from 20 organs and tissues. The data allow for direct and controlled comparison of gene expression in cell types shared between tissues, such as immune cells from distinct anatomical locations. They also allow for a comparison of two distinct technical approaches: “}}

Bluetooth was named after a Danish King (but just bad tooth?)

Saturday, August 3rd, 2019

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harald_Bluetooth

“The first documented appearance of Harald’s nickname “Bluetooth” (as blatan; Old Norse *blátǫnn) is in the Chronicon Roskildense (written ca. 1140), alongside the alternative nickname Clac Harald.[5] Clac Harald appears to be a confusion of Harald Bluetooth with the legendary or semi-legendary Harald Klak, son of Halfdan. The byname is given as Blachtent and explicitly glossed as “bluish or black tooth” (dens lividus vel niger) in a chronicle of the late 12th century, Wilhelmi abbatis regum Danorum genealogia.[6] The traditional explanation is that Harald must have had a conspicuous bad tooth that appeared “blue” (i.e. “black”, as blár “blue” meant “blue-black”, or “dark-coloured”). Another explanation, proposed by Scocozza (1997) is that he was called “blue thane” (or “dark thane”) in England (with Anglo-Saxon thegn corrupted to tan when the name came back into Old Norse).[7]”
