I recently had the honor of being brought on to blog on the Geekend. As with my previous blog, for those two people that read it, I’ll be Linux focused, but I will probably post on all things geek. As a matter of fact, I’ve been working on a hack for my 1970 VW Bug to put in a little more sound dampening and a couple more speakers. ‘Course, that means I actually have work on my Bug and that seriously cuts into my World of Warcraft time.
Since this is my introduction, I thought I’d post about the recent court case: http://www.securityfocus.com/columnists/421 that basically says you can do anything you want on your employer’s network. What really baffles me is this happened in the DoD! The defense basically said that if you change your password, you have a right to expect privacy. I’m not sure in what universe this makes sense, but the judge bought into it! If someone could explain this to me, that’d be great; as it stands right now, I’ve no idea what’s going on.
I’ll be posting probably a couple times a week and I can’t promise there’ll be any continuity. I look forward to posting more and having fun with the blog!
