Not as thick as I'd like, but maybe I could be creative and make it larger, using twice the amount of ribbons?

Found the spiffy Origami book as well. Am probably ordering it.

Props to Michael for covering for the hardware engineer. I'm just amused that they were able to sneak the server back in. And then say, "Oh, we just rebooted it".

Facebook information could be sniffable: http://www.theregister.com/2007/06/26/sniffing_private_facebook_info/

It only implies that someone could guess and check to see if you have some specific words on your profile. So they would have to know you, and then maybe have something specific they're looking for. Which could or could not be a problem. It's a bit like bruteforcing a password: trying different combinations over and over, but unless bruteforcing the password, a correct guess only tells you that it's correct, and does not grant you access to the account.

Not bad. Took me about... probably an hour to two hours to finish it. It's rather pretty, actually. The original design [6 - see the original paper copy I built at someone else's house] called for a larger ribbon to be slit into parts, but leaving a joined section for the wing. Since the ribbon I picked up wasn't big enough to slit at all, I had to use binder clips (err, I think that's what they're called...) to hold it together until I could get enough weaved together.

There's also a fish I want to build, but... it calls for ribbon of nearly double the thickness. Or I'll have to get creative about the design. I can probably do it, shouldn't be too hard.
