The green gadget

  View Printable Version 
For your next four-day trek in the mountains - however un-geeky it may sound, Motorola's wind-up hand-sized charger developed by Freeplay Energy, is the gadget to bring along on such an excursion.

Wouldn't it be the ultimate irony to charge the Duracell Bunny with one of these?

A LAN tarpit perhaps?

  View Printable Version 
NetworkingEvery one of you that are on the net 24/7 via xDSL, Cable or otherwise, have surely been subject to scanning from the Code Red worms. At least that is true for me. It's annoying. Now, there's a tool out that puts a strangle on whatever thread from a nearby infected server happens past your port 80 - open or not. I'm talking about LaBrea. While not actually a security tool, it can at the very least give you comfort and a soothing feeling only elsewhere found in some Cognac produce.

So, get back on that steenkin' Code Red worm, and jail a worm today!

Zimmermann's woes

  View Printable Version 
Seems like Phil Zimmermann - the original author of PGP - have gotten his share of hate mail after the incidents in New York some time ago, an article in Washington Post says. And with that, the debate on encryption is back to square one.

Next someone will dig up the remains of the Wright bros. to slap them hard on the face for making aviation possible in practice. And finally BIC will be sued royally for making cigarette lighters weapons of war. Sigh.

Your meta tags are too good

  View Printable Version 
The most popular search term on Lycos for the week ending september 15, was "Nostradamus" (Yes. It's that old French drivel-ish guy). If you search for him on Lycos, you get quite a few hits. Now, try clicking on the site that shows up at the top of the list. This webmasters meta tags were simply too good. Doh!
