Security: Linux vs Windows, administering Windows over telnet report just out by Nicholas Petreley takes a good hard look at both OS's from a security standpoint, comparing design charateristics and the way vurlnerablilities en inherrent buildup of the OS influences the actual severity of exploits and how this is messured most effectivly.Though the arcticle is clearly anti-MS biased, I found it a insighfull read and will be using its many facts and figures often. I must also say that I agree ......

Ughm... *rubbs head*
Well the last week has been colorfull. Started the new job at the media company, and feelings are still mixed. First of all, the positive points.This is a big operation. Its a very cool enviroment to work in. Round the corner of this office is the cotrol room for our national television channels, and upstairs are the newsrooms themsselves, that we had a walk though. When I go to lunch I see people I previously only new from TV. Yesterday I got the grand tour from one of the network guys. I visited ......

Show us your rack!
Cool. Kevin over at Kevin's Stuff featured me on his podcast.. twice! I'll be working on some feedback for the topics he shouted out. He was thinking about a catch-frase for the show, and he came up with "Show us your rack!" .. which I think is excellent! I switched back to ipodder for my cast feeds, on account of Doppler not having any kind of history functionality... yet. You see, I will listen to a cast, and then delete it strait out of Media Player. Ipodder keeps a little text file with url/names ......

Title: Podcasting - Another cool thing I (and everyone else) just discoveredDate: 10/10/2004 3:40:00 AMFirst thing first: Here is a link to a small tutorial by Jake Ludington on how to set up Ipodder and Media Player 10 to get you started with easily listening to podcasting on the Windows platform. I missed this.. perhaps not that suprising considdering no one was talking about it since just a week or so ago.. at least according to my feed ......

MSDN Technet brief in The Hague
Today I attended the fall MSDN/Technet brief in the Hague, Netherlands, which is a free event. It was, therefore, nice to see Steve Balmer make an appearance. The theme was 'Security eXPeriance' and the sessions centred around ISA 2004 and MOM 2005 mostly. I attended the hands-on lab for ISA and was quite impressed, even given my limited experience with ISA 2000. I like the fact that MS is now basicly moving towards a single interface that is a lot more intuitive than MMC.. everything now looks like ......

Experimentations in my computer usage behaviour
Well, I have now basicly given up the use of sysadmin privilege as default, resolving to use admin rights only when needed. In order to actually acomplish this best-practice behaviour, my resource is primairily Aaron Margosis' blog, and some of the tools he has published there.And on top of this, I have switched my primairy user account for my laptop to a domain account on my home domain. The reason for this is to familiarize myself more with all the issues one can encounter as a mobile user in an ......

Ignoring 'Generation Techs' at your own peril | CNET
Ignoring 'Generation Techs' at your own peril | CNET News.comDidn't spend much time reading news today, as I usually do. This article caught my eye though.It actually summed up quite nicely the troubles I too have encounted in the workspace, with regards to people not being able to deal with my way of working and communicating. Its always been a bit of a mystery to me why I cant often get the "older" generation interested in things like Instant Messaging, Blogging (though I am relativly new to it ......

Objectives for near future
My tech objectives for the near future:-Start to run as a non-admin user by default on all my computers.
