Long Catch Up PostOh yea, still busy as hell... I'm doing a little better tho. Lately I've been doing a lot for Murphy--proving his theory true.
Anyway, I'm not sure whether this post is really worth something; but I just want to mark down what I've missed for myself... sorry if it's too long, but feel free to skip it since I'm sure a lot of you have already read/heard most of these.

- New security threat - " 'evil twin' wifi routers. Here's how it works. A criminal rides up and down in the elevator of an office building looking for unsecured wireless routers. When he finds one, he rents an office nearby for the sole purpose of installing a high-speed line, and a super-powerful wireless router. He names it the same as the open router he found. Now when people come into work their computers will discover the more powerful router, and the users, none the wiser, will do their unsecure transactions, entering passwords, account numbers, mother's maiden names, etc, none the wiser that a criminal is recording all this juicy data and selling it to identity thieves in Russia or Nigeria"
