For any object moving through a fluid, forces are applied to the object as the fluid moves around it. A fluid can be something like water, or even something like the air around us. When the object is specifically designed to maximize the forces that the fluid can apply, you can designate these designs as airfoils. A more common name that most people would use is a wing. The shape of a wing, or airfoil, determines the forces that are applied to it when it moves through a fluid or the air. These forces also depend on the speed of motion through the fluid and the direction of flow around the airfoil.

Conference season is here. And, with it comes a barrage of swag just waiting to find its way to bottom of our bags or a pile on the top of our desks. But we love our swag, don't we? We redistribute it later to friends and collegues we think could really use another sticker for their laptop or another T-shirt for their T-shirt drawer. Maybe another water bottle for all those hot summer days ahead or an umbrella shant we get caught in the rain! Oh, and the beloved collector's item, the lanyard. How they grow and heave wherever they might collect year over year of our attendance to conferences far and wide.

A year ago today (April 7), I first saw the OpenSSL advisory about a new security vulnerability identified as CVE-2014-0160 and titled "TLS heartbeat read overrun." When I first wrote my article for eWEEK on the issue, I identified the flaw as the Heartbeat SSL flaw.
