So I had another one of my harebrained ideas and it goes something like this: Do you use your “DMZ” feature on your router at home? If you do, you shouldn’t. It’s like putting your computer directly on the net. Bad idea all around. Well, instead of having all those packets hit a brick wall, why not put them to good use? So, create a Virtual Machine that you have running on your system and point your DMZ switch at.
So I was at a ‘talk’ recently where the topic was geared toward technically inclined, but the whole talk was geared toward managers and low level IT bubbas, if you will. But as I sat there stabbing myself in the eye with my pencil (hence the mad cow reference) I can up with some hair brained ideas. Now, some of these ideas might already be out there or thought of, and I haven’t googled any of them, just wanted to write them down somewhere for people to comment on.
This was originally posted at http://www.jpugh.org/2008/01/vonage-and-ekiga-on-suse-linux.html I had to find it via google cache as the page is no longer there or has just been down for the past week. So I am reposting it for reference: Vonage and Ekiga on SUSE Linux For the first time ever, I lost my cell phone. No freakin’ idea where it went and this IS the first time I have every lost a phone.
A low doorway in the east wall allows access to the example room, a glowing portal in the north wall leads to the mortal start area, and to the northeast is the quiet room, the door of which is currently open. The LIMA mudlib greeter stands here, smiling politely. There’s a Camaro Z28 parked here. Sco’s Pet There are many clear bottles here. A map of Lima Bean is pinned to the wall.
So, I have to apologize to the whole Security community for my idiocy. Yesterday I was made aware of a post about Backtrack 3 Final coming out. The link I received was a link to Mut’s blog. While reading the post it mentioned something about an early IRC release. Proceeding to IRC I found a direct link to the ISO in the topic. Excited about the release I failed to read the rest of the topic in IRC mentioning that they wanted it to stay within the IRC community.
Recently I have been hearing a lot of innovators posting to their blogs that they are pursuing new employment with Microsoft, and I wonder if they are making sneaky power plays into the Open Source market. Taking it’s best projects and plucking their leads. For example: KnoppMyth Creator: http://mysettopbox.tv/index.html#News EDIT: The above article seems to be an April Fools joke that I was late to the party on. Thanks to Mark for calling me out.
What happens when the lights go out. Power is gone and all you have left is your thoughts and a laptop that’s battery is quickly dieing? You write. Movies will take up too much power and it’s too dark to read so you write. What do you write about, does it really matter? You write. I am a part of a great many projects but I can’t say that I have contributed to them very much.

Wow. I have to admit, they did the Facebook chat right. I like how it looks and how it works. I would only change one this and allow chats to disembark from the status bar, but other than that, congrats. It is actually keeping me on Facebook longer. Enough brown nosing, here are the pros and cons: PRO: very well done layout - clean, crisp and not in the way
