Cleaning my home office.

I have finally made a decision; I will be cleaning out my home office. Around my desk there are a number of piles of documents, printouts from articles, magazines, books, etc etc. The problem however is that in most of the magazines and articles there are parts I still like to keep, maybe I will read them somewhere in the future and maybe I like to refer some of them in the future.

So as I am not able to just get rid of them I will be starting to scan them or create text documents of them and store them on my home file server. Some of them I think will be nice to share so I will post them on my blog and some of them I will incorporate on my website (which is still not finished) .

Break web security

Mike Andrews a senior software security consultant from Foundstone gives a lecture during a Google TechTalks in April. He is talking about how to break web security. A nice introduction but not very much new stuff.

dc0de on outbound content manager

I just found a video archive of PhreakNIC online, yes using On the website you can find out more about the PhreakNIC conference, at you will be able to find all the video archives.

As an example of what you might find dc0de explains the importance of and the basic workings of an outbound content manager. Presented at PhreakNIC 9. PhreakNIC is an annual hacker/technology conference in Nashville, TN, put on by the Nashville 2600 Organization and Nashville Linux Users Group.

SNORT presentation

A 30 minute presentation about SNORT from the guys of the Chicago 2600 meetings. As most about SNORT will be explaind during the presentation I will not go to deep into snort itself.

A quick introduction to SNORT.Snort is an open source network intrusion prevention and detection system utilizing a rule-driven language, which combines the benefits of signature, protocol and anomaly based inspection methods. With millions of downloads to date, Snort is the most widely deployed intrusion detection and prevention technology worldwide and has become the de facto standard for the industry.

Documentary 2600

I have been searching again. It is becoming quite a habit to do this when I have some time to spare. Some people have a preference for YouTUBE because of the fact it is more easy to place your own video on the internet. As I do not have any need to put a video of myself online, and I think a lot of other should not have these desires to put a video of themselves online, I stick to the Google video section.

And again I have found a good documentary which satisfied one of my interests. This documentary is about the New York hacker culture and about 2600. I would like to invite you all to devote some time to it and take a look at it. It is quite a good documentary.

You might have noticed some advertisement on the menu side of my weblog by now. To give you explanation, this is a new webservice I learned about while listening to the “Inside Silicon Valley” podcast where the creator of was giving an interview.

ThisNext provides you to search for products by means of tags and a social structure. Something like is doing with music. If you like this product/song you most likely also like this product/song. This is the way it is working and it gives you the option to see what people are buying whom also like products you like. This way you can discover new products and services in a quick and easy way. You also have the option to see what people think about those products.

The side banner that is now on this weblog is showing some of the products that I have recommended and/or are on my whish list. This way I can give the people visiting this weblog some insight in the products I like. I do not know how long this will be there, it is a test, I like to try this for a couple of weeks to see if it is a real gain for this weblog or not.
