As this Hack In The Box article shows, there is good information out there for those who do not wish to be caught out by forensic analysis of their computers.

Makes relying on forensics that bit trickier...

How to make windows more like Linux

12 steps to becoming more l33t. I think it's supposed to be pro MS, but some of it definitely looks the opposite to me.

This article over on Bruce Schneier's blog is interesting, but what is more interesting is the comment and debate fuelled by this. Remarkably similar to the whole open/closed debate in IT Security but for the physical security world.

Want that one!

Little Britain. Gotta love it. Even the BOFH does!

Wired News: India's Odd Couple: Cops and Tech

Wired News: India's Odd Couple: Cops and TechThis poses some major issues for IT outsourcing! Cripes.

Mobile users need for power

The New York Times has an article: Power Users, Ready for a Refill which points out something I hadn't really thought about - the need for power when mobile. For me, even if I use my mobile all day, a charge lasts a day - more than a week on standby, my laptop lasts 5 hours (if I'm just working on documents etc) and my main mobile mp3 device is in the car so I hadn't come across this issue. But it seems people with high current devices are desperate for a charge:-)

A new year - a new dawn

Finally -after much procrastinating...I am broadbanded. Just 'cos I got Doom 3 and Half Life 2, so I thought I should.

I guess the other upside is the speedy downloading of ISO files.

Need to go and get that linksys box though - blimming Voyager 205 broadband router from BT is a bit pants.

Happy New Year anyway
