While a bit off topic I thought I'd share this security related piece of news. If you are signed up to Troy Hunt's Have I Been Pwned service you may have received an email in regards to this. Basically a large database was found online unsecure containing 1.2 billion records - these records seemed to be mainly public available information e.g. email addresses, social media accounts, basically things that people can possibly find but all included together. It doesn't seem things like passwords where included.

It does show something interesting - even though that information is available and most people know this, most people aren't happy discovering their information is available and being used like this.
