    When is shit going to hit the fan? I’m waiting. I’m saying by the end of April just in time for the warm summer. The tanks can roll cleanly though the streets.

    Hey Mike, Thanks for the update. (I didn’t realize the Irish had been downgraded. Didn’t see it in the States’ news yesterday…) Have fun in Paris:)Love the travel footage.

    Mike, I use OpenBSD and PF as a firewall. Nearly all attacks on my firewall originated in China. Mostly they are dictionary attacks looking for ssh accounts.

    I finally got fed up and grabbed a list from IANA of all China ISP IP address ranges, and created a blacklist, and blocked all of China. You could say, the Great Firewall For China.

      A very good idea! I too have noticed the same activity – I have a secure FTP and the number of attacks is unendingly funny… Yep dictionary attacks, not very good if you know how to craft a password

        Do you think this worm was really a huge problem or just PRS? Problem reaction solution. See the article here. Imagine all the possibilities with this authority, considering that a large percentage of Americans get their phone service through the internet now. Do you think could impact personal communication? Control water etc..?? I don’t get it, provide insight please!

        Rules for Private Networks Also Proposed
