Social Engineering, the USB Way is worth a read for anyone who thinks their network is secure, or for anyone who leaves autorun enabled on their PC..

Seeking Rum Recommendations

I read an article in Time Magazine recently about Rum, and how it is apparently enjoying something of a resurgance in popularity. I decided to try a couple of decent rums in different forms to give it another chance. Apparently I'm not the only one! That thread has some rum commentary and recommendations to get you started if you're at all interested.

Tabula Rasa Videos

If you're at all interested in Tabula Rasa, but can't be bothered playing the beta, then you should check out some of these videos. They give a pretty good window into what that game is going to contain when it hits next month. The first video also lets you laugh at Richard Garriott's spectacularly bad double ratstail haircut, so there's some extra value thrown in for free!     Tags: MMORPG, Gaming

Slashdot features in ORLY moment

Some dude wonders when Slashdot lost it's relevance. The answer is actually "a hell of a long time ago", but don't let that stop anyone. Some people maintain the best part about Slashdot is the comments. Some people maintain Slashdot is great apart from the comments. As the group of scientists in Powell Peralta's "BAN THIS" said: YOU DECIDE!

What were they thinking?

I'm simply echoing Volker's sentiment in asking what were they thinking? I've talked about the excellent Notes error messages before - or more to the point, I've passed along the comments of a friend (Mr Sonic, who really needs a web presence, as in yesterday). They really are pretty spectacular - at times Helpdesk operators attempt to get a user to describe an error message "exactly as it appears" for troubleshooting purposes. What's the conversation going to be like when someone tries to describe this:   I'd say "Godzilla pwned my Workstation". But that's just me. Because I loved Sonic's quote...
