dept. of homepage security?

by Rob Friesel

Via Wired News: “Campaign Sites Lack Security” My favorite part: “Several of the faults are critical; they can be easily exploited with serious repercussions,” said the researcher. “And the fact I could run this scan remotely points to the complete lack and utter uselessness of their network security.” Maybe it’s just me… But if you […]

movin’ on in.

Ah yes… The move. Where did we leave off? I owe pictures (see below). The good: The house roxxors my boxxors. The bad: The couch didn’t quite make it through the 30″ door into the living room (but we’ll just see about that in the long run…) And how are we? Sore-sore-sore. And still “net […]

Seems the only thing that Cory Doctorow got wrong is that it’s “Sister Machine Gun” and not “Sister Machinegun”. Otherwise: B’gock! Timing being what it is, I’d *just*just*just* re-discovered Positron! Records… A & I have caned the Eco-hed album to death for years now (not to mention Micronaut…) and all of the sudden the other […]

When spring sprang, nobody around here noticed it. It was still cold and precipitous and… Well, as my buddy Scott said: “Vermont has 4 seasons — almost winter, winter, still winter, and construction.” But we noticed when summer settled in and stretched its big arms out. In the middle of all this chaotic moving madness, […]
