Not much posting lately. I have been busy preparing my next big venture, the CyberSecurity Testing Association. The site is up, the methodologies are coming along, and there is definite interest from both potential members and vendors to be tested. I hope to launch fully (that is, with both members and tested systems) in about a month.
Over on Surfin' Safari, Dave Hyatt talks about how hard it is to detect and fix browser bugs, and gives good math for the reason. However, now there is talk on the net that Safari 1.1 has the old cookie-stealing bug that plagued Mozilla and IE off and on for many years. If it is true (I can't easily test it myself), that would be a Safari bug that I hope would be fixed ASAP.
Went to see the Indigo Girls live last night, and am still singing. Their energy was great, and so was the set list. The last time I saw them, they were pretty much just promoting a recent release by doing most of its songs; last night, they sampled from possibly all of their albums.
If you have ever liked the IGs but haven't seen them live in a while, definitely go. They played a couple of songs from their upcoming album, all of which sounded like they could have come from their first four albums (which means: great). Last night was all acoustic, and the venues on this tour are pretty small. It was no problem to get up close and dance.
If anyone has any tapes from this tour, by all means let me know.
Backup Brain points to a long, complicated article about how to run multiple versions of IE/Win on a single PC. No, no, no. Do it the safe and simple way. Yes, it costs US$300, but it is incredibly useful for a zillion things. And safe. And simple. One word: VMWare.
