Dead but not dying, Gone but not leaving. 2006/9/23 1:36 AM
That title pretty much sums up the state of my website, does it not? I still keep an eye on it and obviously I have secured some form of hosting for it since moving into my first home, though I have yet to actually do anything with it. I guess it takes

Development Teams: Help or Hindrance? 2018/6/22 4:05 PM
This week I've decided to tackle a topic which has been in the back burner of my mind for awhile: Whether or not development teams are a help or a hindrance. Why now? I was asked some questions which revolved around this as part of a job interview I had

Ding Dong the Trump Regime is Dead 2021/1/20 12:08 PM
I have been waiting to write this post for the last four years and I'm so happy that the moment is finally here. If you still worship at the altar of Trump, you will not like what I have to say. I am not pulling any punches. The time for a reckoning has

Ding Dong: The Internet is Dead 2020/6/24 7:53 PM
In today's world with everything either burning or smoldering, it can be distressing to wake up each day and face the latest developments. Everything that is happening now is happening because, like the Empires of yesteryear, systems rise and they fall.

Dumb Homes For the Win 2018/6/2 4:01 PM
This morning a young man knocked on my door with the goal of selling me on a Vivint Smart Home System. Needless to say that if you know me at all, you know I put the kibosh on that in a hurry. My opposition to this idea springs from more than my fear of

Election 2008: Abstinent Again 2008/7/10 4:50 AM
Well frak. It looks like the failure of Barack Obama has become complete. The idea of a change in Washington has obviously transitioned from a way of doing business to a catchy slogan. That slogan kind of reminds me of Google's "Do no evil" sl

Election Day 2008 2008/11/4 6:25 PM
So what's going to happen today? It's anybody's guess. So let me make mine: I predict a landslide electoral win by Obama today (+100 margin between him and McCain). I'll go ever further and make a wild guess for a 55%/45% popular vote split in Obama's

Ethical Quandary: Is it ever responsible to irresponsibly disclose? 2018/2/8 12:35 AM
Today's post is going to examine an ethical grey area that I currently find to be very relevant. Is it ever okay to ignore responsible disclosure standards for security related issues? Spoiler alert: I'm going to argue that there are cases in which ignor
