…sorting your socks you realize you have at least 5 different brands/styles of white socks and you actually say out loud before thinking… “I really need to standardize on a single vendor and style for these white socks.”…

Then even as you think how sad it was that you came to that conclusion about something as simple and fun as socks you are trying to come up with a remediation plan and determining the features to standardize on… which ones do I like the feel of, what brands have the better quality, what socks seem to stay “whitest”, etc…

Sadly that is a true story.

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. 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.
