Hell Yes I'm Still Alive

At least I'm updating my Diverts section of this blog right?

Simple Pleasures from Neal Boortz

Would it not be to our advantage to capture or kill the people who would do that to us before they come here? Isn't it better to mow down the insurgents in Iraq before they can build a training base and recruit more jihadists to come and kill Americans?

Ahh, the master of the logical fallacy, the guy that claims James Blake Miller will be a movie star (or would be by now), strikes again with more stupidity. I don't disagree with some of his points but his tone is that of a pompous asshole and his listeners are close to the same.

Let me just open this one up to comment from my fine-ass readers. But noodle this one; the concept of striking an enemy before "they come here" is many times called forward defense. Here's a link. Enjoy the context and feel free to point out your favourite ass goblin moment in this link or others.

...Boortz' next paragraph is too obvious but you can take a stab if you like.

Monterey and Salinas

Saturday Mrs. Ober and I traveled down the Pacific Coast Highway to Salinas and Monterey. The reasons for traveling to Monterey are many and somewhat obvious. The reasons for a trip to Salinas are not.

Salinas is home to a fertile valley, a rich agricultural tradition, and The National Steinbeck Center. The center was an obvious choice for me as I came all this way and he is my favourite author. However, I have to admit, The National Steinbeck Center was a bit of a disappointment. Not that I didn't enjoy it. I'm just not sure that, 1) It was worth the $10 and, 2) there was much there for those that aren't fans or at least familiar with his work. More importantly, I didn't feel that I came away with a better or more in-depth understand of the man, his life, and his work.

Monterey is simply Monterey. It's a beautiful seaside town nestled on the bay. Mrs. Ober and I climbed down a few rocks, strolled the beach, chatted with some hermit crabs, and shouted slogans at seals. Surprisingly, we actually recommend paying the $8 and going out to Pebble Beach. Gorgeous coastal views, flora and fauna, and wildlife make it well worth the time and money. Slogans optional.

Our drive home featured me familiarizing myself with the "speed limit optional" 101. At about 90 mph, Mrs. Ober, I would later learn, started feeling uncomfortable. Also, mad props to us, for putting "the" in front of the highway numbers. We're locals!

How Liberal is San Fran?

So liberal that a few of the street lights (specifically ones close to the San Fran side of the Bay Bridge) have not one but two yellow lights. Now that's a liberal model for traffic control!

Cisco's IPv6 Cat Out of Bag

Ahhh, the stink; a presentation on a known vulnerability from a company that sells security products and fancies themselves as a security-driven company.

Oh yea, a presentation that Cisco censured. Sweet, sweet, disclosure.

Thanks for the reminder Frodo. Oh gentle hobbit of IT security.

This greeted me this morning.

Good thing my password was Cisco123.
