December 2nd, I drove down to Williamsburg VA to meet up with the guys from Hak.5 and Frank Linhares. For those of you who don’t know. Hak.5 is an IPTV (Vidcast) show, which basically boils down to a TV show on the internet. Anyways, I got to meet up with these fellas and a couple other interesting people. While I was there, I had the privilege of helping out not only in the live techPhile podcast by Frank Linhares, but also the ‘glue’ segments of Ep 5 of Hak.
Well if you were wondering about me, I didn’t die. I am working on a super secret project for Frank Linhares of techPhile.ca But don’t tell anyone! That is secret squrrell news. I have also submitted some logo ideas for the new Auditor Security Collection. You can vote for me: HERE I also got a HP dv1420us which, so far, I really like. It doesn’t like linux too much, but it is challenging me to learn more about the kernel and other aspects of linux to fix the problems.
Today was Brandon’s first birthday that he has missed. I hope that he knows that I love him very much. I have just written this on the 30th and back dated it. I miss my brother.
I was promoted to the Rank of Sergeant. Just wanted to let people know. And the reason why this entry is so short, is NOT because I am not excited about it. It’s because I have better things to do right now ;-) Sgt jd.mubix

Most of us in the industry know what the slashdot effect is. But for those who don’t. Slashdot.org has such a following, that, when a news article is posted on Slashdot, so many users click on the links provided that a unintentional DDoS or Distributed Denial of Service attack is created, where the news site is taken basically killed by all the traffic that it instantly has to deal with. Well Digg.
I did a search on Digg.com and was suprised to see that not a soul has written about ShmooCon 2006. I guess all you west coasters only care about DefCon. That is discrimination and WE DON’T HAVE TO TAKE IT!. Back to reality. Well if you don’t know ShmooCon is basically the DefCon for the east coast and is being held in Washington D.C. . Registration is limited, unlike DefCon, so hurry and whip out those Paypal accounts.
For those of you who do not know Whitedust.net is the leading independent ‘hacker’ portal. Yes that’s right! All of you Skiddies out there, you may not know who you are but WE DO, this site is NOT for you. Now that that disclaimer is over: Ladies and Gentlemen, If you have been luck, you’ve already seen them on /. or even on digg.com. Whitedust.net is an awesome site that has great articles relating to security and other such things.
Security oriented Linux Live CD “WHAX” is supposedly merging with Auditor. Quick history of WHAX: Whoppix based off Knoppix: Awesome CD Whoppix gets a name change and base distro change: Not broken, don’t fix it. New WHAX website gets hacked: ironic. Sep 9th… We (WHAX) are merging with Auditor, we need a new name: Anyone up for a downhill run? STILL NO UPDATE! What’s going on guys?
I have stolen a sneak peek at one of the errors that have ALREADY come up in Microsoft Windows Vista. Take a look: scary eh? jd
