In hubby's office, these two tsunamis have arrived with sentiments that appear almost like Fukushima. "What? NOW this one too?!!"
The UBUNTU publicity arrived a week after the facts were original distributed, and routine security functions were merely stepped up a day or two. No big deal. At least not yet!

And the threat that these incredibly-overpriced developer-fee IDs could be compromised, or lost, or mis-used... well... "3/11 and Fukushima" is probably a worthy parallel.
Dial-up BBS, anyone? EEeee-SQWAAAAWWWK, EEEeeee Squaaawwwk...
