Stuff to install and play with

I need to update LiveJournal on my iBook and play around with it.. it's been a while since I've played with my installation. 'course, it's rather boring when there's no one else in it.. kinda like playing God without little critters to poke at and ask for opinions.

I should install some other blogging tools. Done it before, but meh.

Need to install Tripwire, Snort, and Nesses. Maybe Linux as well, on my Desktop box here.

Oh, and while I'm on security, this is pretty sad:
DHS Gets Another F in Computer Security

DHS, if you don't know, is our lovely "Department of Homeland Security". Somehow, I get the vaguest feeling that they just sorta sit there and get paid to look pretty.

"It turns out that the vast bulk of the federal information security money is spent on documenting these systems, not on securing or testing them against attacks," Paller said. "Most [agencies] are spending so much on the paperwork exercises that they don't have a lot of money left over to fix the problems they've identified."
:: sighs:: This is why, while I'm interested in security, I'm not too enthusiastic about working in the sector. Well, that, and there is SO MUCH I still need to learn.
