For those that know me I am not a very religious person, but every year I share the following video from Apollo 8 and their Christmas Eve message. Please take a few minutes minutes to watch it and reflect about all the goodness that is around us.

Merry Christmas everyone.

This is most excellent news. We have had several of our partner agencies get affected by this and now there appears to be a solution to recover files. (sorry if this has been posted previously. this piece just came across the state of texas security wire) http://krebsonsecurity.com/2014/08/new-site-recovers-files-locked-by-cryptolocker-ransomware/
Until today, Microsoft Windows users who've been unfortunate enough to have the personal files on their computer encrypted and held for ransom by a nasty strain of malware called CryptoLocker have been faced with a tough choice: Pay cybercrooks a ransom of a few hundred to several thousand ...

You know the one thing I think could keep anything from being moved to IT just to use up money would be the phrase: "You know if we use this money for blank we will not be able to fix anything that breaks, since we will not have money for parts."

has anyone else been flooded with new G+ followers the past week? I've been averaging 10 to 20 added followers ever couple of days. Most of then are SPAM.

A few weeks ago there was a run on 'people' following then upvoting my every post. I checked the content of their streams and bios and most I did not return the favor due to content free bios and streams. I wonder if the number of follows is related to the number of who you follow which may mean they are spidering through peoples relationships here. Seems like they follow at the same ration of who you follow (I follow fewer so I got fewer bot follows). This may imply that these bots are the work of a coordinated group.

If MicroShaft had a viable solution to upgrade existing systems on XP, through Vista, then Windows 7, this would be a non-issue.
Summary: [UPDATE: Microsoft response] A single registry setting makes Windows Update think your XP system is Windows XP POSReady, which will receive updates for another five years.

Keep an eye on the new Fraking POS Adobe Flash Update that's out there. This POS didn't give me the option NOT to install McAfee Security Scan Plus. This crap reminds me of the days of installing Real Audio and all of the CRAPWARE that went with it.... I really don't need this sh!t today.

If you sign up for a Flash Distubution license you can actually download and deploy the Flash msi files.

I am looking for an advanced authentication solution for Windows (7 and 8). What I have are several non-domain laptops that need access to remote secure resources. The requirement is that I have to have advanced authentication deployed in my environment. This could be candled via bio-metrics, proximity card, USB token, or one time password via a key fob or smart phone application. I would be interested in hearing from those that have deployed such a solution. I have a few vendors in mind but before I get a sales person involved, I wanted to know how things are working out.

I like citrix xenapp/receiver storefront with VIP soft token. You could also deploy a domain joined VM to them with XenClient or DesktopPlayer.

If this were in the U.S., I bet they'd be in jail. Now the boys just need to use their l33tness for good.
A couple of 14-year-old computer whizzes have the Bank of Montreal upgrading their security measures after they hacked an ATM machine.

Yes, not really a hack. Pretty bad that they can get at surcharge amounts without needing physical access inside the machine (I assume they didn't jimmy a lock). I used to service ATMs at this bank, but they have changed ATM manufacturers since.

Info for those that use Nitrodesk's Touchdown as I do. I don't think I'm too happy about this....

I'll reserve judgement to see what they do just because I don't want to have to give up my Touchdown. Next to Tasker, this is my favorite app.

Why should I invest in a Surface Pro 3 when I can get a comparably equipped laptop for the same, if not less, money? Seriously, why would I? What big bang features does this give me that a laptop can't? The only things I can think of are thickness and weight. I'm willing to be educated but I am not really on the tablet bandwagon for production work.
The Surface Pro has never been a bad idea. One device that's both your laptop and your tablet! Sounds great! The problem was that it was just never quite either; it was awkward on both counts. The new, bigger Surface Pro 3 though, might have actually pulled it off.

Regional business jet service for less than 1st class - Peter Schmidt, COO

Just picked up a new to me 20100 Miata Grand Touring fully loaded. The sales staff were fantastic. There was zero pressure to buy. The sales manager Lee Pollock and my salesman Kirk Manias were great to deal with, even allowing me to look at and test drive the car even before it was ready to go on the lot. The F & I manager Courtney was zero pressure as well. He gave me some options, I politely declined them, and he was fine with that. Well worth the 1.5 hour drive to do business.
