I use their server product at work and love it. Images the system while its up and running etc. So I talked to Acronis and got a discount for listeners of our FriendsinTech podcasts.
So how about one of these external firewire Raid carriers. Plus two 200GB drives on sale at Compusa. At the time of this writing all was on sale for one amount or another. But I am drooling thinking what that would do for my data backup on my mac or maybe stripe it and get performance for my audio work.
Remember Ken Ray from Inside Mac Radio? His cool sense of humor and light touch to Mac News? Well seems Ken has moved on from IMR and is doing his own podcast. If you miss his brand of news telling check out his new site and podcast.
Way cool! Victor from over at Typical Mac User found Apple is offering 35% off on their books self learning on their Pro apps.
Also Apple is giving a heck of a discount on owners of any of the single pro apps to the studio in February. In my case it wil be just $200 to upgrade to the full studio from Soundtrack Pro.
We have all heard of malware catching everything a user types. A lot of us have even seen the PS2 connector keystroke catcher.
Now there is the USB keystroke catcher for USB based keyboards.
Always keep your hardware positioned so you can spot added dongles or cables if you work with sensitive information and systems.
If you do not read all bulletins that Microsoft releases and just trust in automatic updates you could face a problem. For example if you still run Exchange 5.5 on windows NT 4.0 you need to apply this one by hand. MS06-003 will require a reboot so be prepared for 15-30 mins down time for Exchange services to shut down and your server restart.
If you do not apply this one you may be facing a time bomb since any mail message crafted with an exploit for this flaw could hit each server it passes through.
Thank you. Seems I am not alone among security professionals who thinks Steve Gibson can sometimes go a bit overboard in his claims. Paul, Larry and Mason think he went a bit far in claiming intentional backdoor written into a windows flaw by Microsoft.
Don’t misunderstand. I think he has done a great deal for awareness of some issues and makes some good tools. He is an amazing assembly programmer. A skill I have not used since I was 16. But I think he should take a step back before making such a claim. We all have to take a deep breath on occasion before we share information particularly about things we are passionate about. I too think this should have been one of those times.
