Another new website layout

I think it's getting to be about time for another layout change on this website.

I've been doing a fair amount of design work on the Cornerstones of Trust website and will be meeting with the San Juaqine Sheriffs Association next month to do some volunteer work on their website.

For my own website, I kind of want to have a media/news style where you get headers and story previews on the main page along with media without having to scroll.

As another friend put it, I want to get more information "Above the fold".

Blogging for Information Security

Martin McKeay has an article Write to learn, learn to progress where he talks about his history of blogging and how it has helped his career, this is a very good post with many good points. I've halfheartedly been blogging since 2004 and one thing I've realized is in order to be a good blogger and get "followers" you need to read other peoples blogs and contribute to ongoing "conversations".

Electric Vehicles are not "Green" (The movie)


This is a presentation I did for my "Language and Communication: Presentation". For my research project I wanted to determine, based on pollution from the generation of electricity if an electric vehicle was any more environmentally friendly than a comparable gasoline engine.

With current power generation techniques in the US, it's not.

Choosing a College Degree Program for Non-Academics

and IT Professionals that don't "Pass Paper"

Edward Frye

Western Governors University




Going back to school, starting Saturday

Starting this coming Saturday, October 1st I begin taking classes again at Western Governor's University.

This will be my second attempt at starting a degree at an online university. The first was through Capella. And as I'm writing this blog entry, there is an advert for Capella right here.

The reason I was not successful with Capella was that the course I took was dependent on time spent "in class". As well as dependent on group projects.

Twitter robot update

Yesterday I decided to see what it would take to get my twitter robot @HackThisOrg up and running again. I found the Net::Twitter perl module when looking for simple OAuth functions. The follow portion of the robot lives again.

When I first wrote the robot, I didn't want to use modules other than the LWP module because I wanted to see if I could get the functions I was looking for in a more simple fashion without having to download and compile a ton of code. I wasn't exactly following the "Be Lazy" mantra of Perl modules.

Cornerstones of Trust 2011

Yesterday was the 2011 Cornerstones of Trust conference in Foster City, and we had a great turnout. There were 29 sponsor booths from various information security vendors. Four great tracks that were mostly full.

During one of the track session that I attended during the event was the Computer Incident Response Planning session presented by Neal McCarthy.

Words with friends update - Android

I was super excited when this came out, however, the last few updates have made this game unplayable. I've been trying to play for several days now and all of my games have blank playing boards and scores of 0.

Today my wife asked me why I resigned all my games. 

I didn't resign any games. Come on Zynga, what's going on with this now?
