Semi-Daily, Bunches of fun!

Security ‘n stuff

Yet another Security post!

So, I was snooping around the net the other day and i ran into this nifty lil’ anti-virus software called “Threatfire”. Love it. It keeps a realtime  scanner up and running and will stop, and bring to your attention, any weird processes. yay!  http://www.threatfire.com/

 

Well, thats all for today… (not much going on really.)

M.T.E.

Get it While it Lasts

Since (Obviously,)  we need more people on a plane no matter what,  these designers have created the new “economy seat”  *shudder*  where your pretty much standing up the whole trip.     As one person said to me, “That way we’ll get better Disasters.” yeah,  i’ll bet.  These seats look like someones attempt at  making everyone swear  off planes and buy a suv.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/travelnews/8001351/SkyRider-new-saddle-seat-allows-airlines-to-cram-more-passengers.html

And on that subject,  hypocrisy at its height. Harry Reid showed up at a clean energy summit in los  vegas. And instead of walking  100 yards, he drives it in a fleet of suv’s. While condemning said vehicle.  Argh.

If  that wasn’t enough,

Remember that bill trying to give Obama the power to shut down the internet?  Well, their trying to get it passed before the end of the year. Ugh, if Skynet doesn’t get us, these jokers will.

And, Finally,   The worst one so far, (and thats saying something.)

A British teenager, (17) has been Deported and banned for life from ever entering re-entering the U.S.A. after sending  Barack an email criticizing the U.S. goverment and calling obama a “p***k”.   Should I start planning on seeing “Dr. Breens private reserve” soon? Or does that come later?

OMG, IT’S SHINY!

While i was looking around today I found this handy little “desktop enhancement thingy”  called “rainmeter”  its free and quite the handy little program. Although you will wanna reconfigure the shortcut icons since it comes with shortcuts to itunes, picasa, firefox, notepad, and trillan. Along with that, i also found another program called “Dropbox” its a  data backup system and it seems pretty good.    chao.

TrueCrypt, For the truly paranoid computer nerd.

So,  Here’s another useful little program to help keep your drives and other stuff   secure.

It’s called  “Truecrypt” and it provides quick, easy, on the fly encryption.

The one thing you have to make sure of, is that you NEVER lose the password to the thing you’ve encrypted,  Since that pasword is the only way in. No backdoor at all.  It’s a nice little program to have stored in a box for a  rainy day.  It’s free and open source so pick it up today!   http://www.truecrypt.org/

‘Till the next time!

First Security Post

Alright,  i found this little gem a while back,  It’s called “Threatfire”   its like a fire wall with some anti virus software thrown in just to cover the rest of your bases, you will definitely want some other software like kapersky (I use avast) or avast.  you can lock down you system entirely if you think you have some kind of worm (which protects you from having to rebuild windows from the ground up. It really sucks. Trust me.)  so that’s  my first lil’ bit of  security stuff.  I’ll post more as i find the time!
