This explains a lot about why I feel I am the only one who cares about security. Most appear to want someone else to take care of it... which is a sad reality not only in my daily work but people actually trust router builders, etc, with ongoing maintenance and support for very little money. This will eventually explode in consumers faces and they will have no one to blame but themselves unfortunately.
Shodan search engine is only the latest reminder of why we need to fix IoT security.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens officially hits the big screen tonight. Therefore, I am putting all of you on notice.

The name's Shane Birley. But everybody calls me Mr. Fett. Any of you guys call me Shane, and I'll kill ya.

And I don't like nobody tellin' me no spoilers in person! So just keep your spoilers to yourselves. If I catch any of you guys postin' spoilers to your timelines, I'll kill ya.

Also, I don't like nobody postin' spoilers on Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus, or Snapchat. Now, any of you weirdos... post spoilers anywhere on the Internet, and I'll kill ya.

And if anyone here hasn't seen the film Stripes... I won't kill ya. I'll make you watch it because it is awesome.

Living His Way

This makes me sad. Lemmy has passed away from an un-diagnosed cancer (apparently, only discovered a couple of days before he died).

If you don't know who Lemmy is, you really ought to take a bit of time and read up on him. He was a fascinating guy because he is someone who seems to have lived his live the way that we all should.

Just live it... no regrets.
Ian Fraser Kilmister, widely known as Motorhead vocalist and bassist Lemmy, died of cancer Monday in Los Angeles. He was 70. The band confirmed his death on its official Facebook page, saying, "The...

It isn't unusual to find myself imaging myself doing this exact thing... usually in the shower. Very cool

This is my go to bookstore for everything from literature to graphic novels. But those things are just books. The greatest thing about Pulp Fiction books is the people who work there. They are knowledgeable, friendly, and are happy to help when I need it. Don't judge this bookstore by its cover. This is the Cheers of bookstores. I wish there were more like it.

I am a regular here. The place is clean, the staff are friendly, and it is priced decently. It isn't perfect but what place is.
