There is something to be said for the sound of a new SuperMicro 2U Server with 2 x Intel Hex Procs and 128 GB of RAM spinning up in your basement… Probably be joined by it’s twin in a few weeks or so.

I need a name… I was thinking Thunder, to be followed up by Lightning.

Every direction I look I see another form of stupidity or cluelessness…

Every direction I look I see another form of stupidity or cluelessness. It is like everyone is standing around saying what they will do and no one is actually trying to figure out what we need and making sure what we do aligns with what we need.

Security is a journey that never ends…

by @ 7:09 am. Filed under quotes, tech

Security is a journey that never ends, it is not a goal that you will complete by Wednesday at 2:48PM. You must be constantly looking at all aspects of things to make sure they are being handled in the most secure manner possible. Treat the resources you manage as if they were your own.

Just in under the wire…

by @ 2:24 pm. Filed under general

Signed up 2 weeks ago because I heard a price increase was coming… Got it in just under the wire and saved myself $24.

In order to continue adding more movies and TV shows, we are increasing our price from $7.99 to $8.99 for new members. As a thank you for being a member of Netflix already, we guarantee that your plan and price will not change for two years.

Great Cause – Science / Tech / Engineering / Math camp for Detroit Public School Girls

by @ 10:55 am. Filed under general

This is a great cause because it is about science, tech, engineering, and math which we all need more of. I personally know one of the co-founders and she is a great person and wouldn’t be involved with anything BUT a great cause. If you have a spare dollar or three please consider sending it that way. I would love to see them hit their goal by this weekend and if everyone who reads this blog or who has ever used one of the many free tools I openly provide and has saved them hours or days of work gave $5 they would go WAY over their goal and be funded for even more and better things.

This summer we are hosting our first Science, Tech, Engineering and Math (STEM) day-camp for young Detroit Public School girls. Help us excite and inspire this generation’s innovators! 100% of donations will go directly to our campers.

Anyone who donates anything has my thanks! I wouldn’t ask except I know I have a lot of very good people following this blog who want to see improvement in our world and are generally in a position to share some little bit. :)


SPECIAL JOEWARE OFFER FROM ME TO ALL OF YOU…. Anyone who donates $250 USD or more to the cause that I can validate as being received ping me on my joeware email address with high priority (if you can) message with the subject of STEM ROCKS with an address and any proof you have and I will validate the donation and then have a joeware t-shirt in the size of your choice sent to you in addition to any perk you get from the site itself. This isn’t through the co-founders or their project, this is completely between you and me and my pocket because I believe in this cause.




P.S. I know I have been very quiet lately and you may be thinking, "Piss off joe, I didn’t even read this!" However I am close to releasing a new version of AdFind with the 2012 R2 updates and some other fixes and additions and I also have been working on a tool to detect network usage on a machine (based on windump/winpcap) specifically to easily capture in a lightweight summary manner what clients are hitting a DC for LDAP, etc.
