I'm totally stoked to see Bill Vaughn blogging because he's 1) Irish 2) named William 3) He's a bad a33. I saw Sahil and Rocky chimed in on this issue - and it's one that I feel like running my big trap about too. In the debate between which to use, there...

Considering that lately I'm falling flat on my face in the 'Things I want to do' vs 'Things I actually find time to do' category, the issue of HoneyPots really got my interest up. Just saw Apress is putting out a new book on HoneyPots by Roger Grimes...

The most Disturbing I've seen since the "Gimp" scene in Pulp Fiction.
Published Mon, Feb 21 2005 20:33 | William
Ok, assume Pulp Fiction was real life. Who would you rather be, this poor SOB or Marsallus Wallace? Just like the Bobbit case, I'm wondering how far down the chopping went... but I better stop here because the next stream of consciousness is just too...

http://www.google.com/sms/ is just what I needed to start playing with. Now when I'm SMSing and driving - I can also get responses back on things like directions to where I'm going. This will provide the perfect excuse for SMS and Driving

Irrespective of how much I hate the SOB's, I have to give it to the people that create the Phishing Scams and many of the spammers - at least in terms of technology. They definitely come up with some pretty clever mechanisms for pulling off their BS....

What's the best music for coding?
