“Hacking” predator drones

Friday, December 18th, 2009

This just makes me sad.  Two articles, one in the WSJ, the other on CNN, describing how insurgents in Iraq are hacking predator drones and receiving the video feeds that the drones are sending back to U.S. ground stations.   First things first, let’s fix the headlines.  Both are running something like “Iraqi insurgents hacked Predator […]

Great moments in . . .

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Minor notes, none worth their own Kong: Skull Island 2017 movie online now Traffic management: I get a call from K around 5:30. She’s stuck behind an accident and the cops on the scene, a) don’t tell people to take a detour until they’ve been there for a half hour; and b) once the […]

Friday, March 28th, 2008

A few years ago, I was accused of using the word “interesting” in subtle ways.  Sometimes it means a truly novel idea that I would like to learn more about, other times, it’s a novel idea of which I’m more than a little skeptical.  In both cases, I stand by the description, to me, both […]

Who could have guessed?

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

Gee, nobody could have predicted this I suppose: The FBI improperly used national security letters in 2006 to obtain personal data on Americans during terror and spy investigations, Director Robert Mueller said Wednesday. Admittedly, Mueller goes on to say that the reports were prior to new policies being put into place, but somehow that doesn’t […]

Is this thing on?

Tuesday, January 15th, 2008

<thump> <thump> Is this thing still on? Okay, it’s been about three weeks since I’ve blogged anything.  As I’ve stated before, this tends to happen when I’m too involved in living life to actually write about it.  Fortunately (unfortunately?) it’s nothing terribly exciting.  Let’s see: Guitar: my guitar playing has been scientifically shown to have […]

Two factor authentication

A couple of weeks ago, Hunter and I were talking about passwords. More to the point, the inadequacy of passwords and why we haven’t moved beyond them yet. This touches on several points that I made last year. Specifically, that a password that is secure enough starts to restrict its usability. In a nutshell, authentication […]

The FBI’s national security letters

Friday, March 9th, 2007

Sometime in late September or early October of 2001, I received a call from an individual identifying himself as an agent of the FBI and asking for information about the owner of an email account from the place I worked.  He stated that he believed the account was relevant to a terrorist investigation. Of course, […]
