Bouncing email messages that are infected has to be the stupidest thing ever.Repeat after me, “the From: address can be forged, the From: address can be forged……..”.

If you are not the intended recipient, please contact the sender by reply e-mail and destroy all copies of the original message.

Why? Because of Winders, Outlook and OE crap.Not only do I have to deal endless virus spam, with my email address forged as the sender of the virus, but I have to put up with 7+ line sigs. Sigs that ask me not to read this message, in fact prohibit(haha) me from reading, if it happens to be something unintentionally spewed by the senders infected box.

Please, make the stupidity stop!


User contacts the lab, complaining that they can’t SSH to one of our servers. The user in question claims to be a programmer and Unix knowledgeable. After going back and forth, we finally find out whats going on.Lab: “What happens when you SSH in?”.User: “All I see is luser@labserver:~$_“.


On a whim I ran Kismet on my laptop during the drive home today. To my amazement it logged a total of 35 access points.

  • 21 of which are unencrypted
  • 17 logged driving from the Lab before crossing the Ashley Bridge
  • 4 from MUSC
  • 8 in my neighborhood

I think I will do some more driving around downtown tomorrow.

Yes this is from /. and yes it’s old

Story time again

A friend of mine has a few chickens the live around his house. One day he hops in his truck to go workout at a Gym ~5 miles from his house. He stays at the Gym for ~1 hour. Then heads to run a errand(another ~7 miles). Both of the trips involve speeds 45-55 m/hr. On his way out to his truck from his errand, he notices movement behind the back wheel of his truck, looks down and finds one of his chickens perched on the axle.The chicken is panting and looks very frightened(can you blame her).

“Trading Spaces”/”While you were out” why must you haunt me?First we run into Leslie(on the left) at Home Depot a few months ago. Then last night we go to a River Dogs game and it’s “Trading Spaces” night. With no less than Doug throwing out the first ball. OYE!I did find more proof that these shows are more about T&A than remodeling
