Without? knowing it, apparently my post of yesterday that mentioned on-line access to eBooks through the Boston Public Library exposed a security hole in their system. It’s plugged now, so that only library card holders registered with the BPL can access the eBooks system.

I can imagine it right now – "Oh my goodness, Quincy!? We’re being overrun by a mob of book-crazed knitters!"? "Batten down the hatches, Sam!? We’re leaking access bytes right and left!"

Oh well. At least our stampede helped them solve an oversight?that might have developed into a more serious problem.
