Season Finale' of 24

Everything worked out in the end. However, I don't know how Jack Bauer will be in next season.

For those of you that didn't catch it. Jack Bauer is dead. Or is he? But he's not. Or???

You'll have to wait for the DVD. I love 24. I'm going to have to buy all three seasons. That's a great show, and is severly underrated.

I love this show as well and had never seen it before this season. May also have to purchase the previous ones on DVD. But wasn't the shooting down of the nuclear missile a bit anti-climactic? I was a little disappointed at that point.

BUT, to counter that, I loved it when that evil b*tch terrorist got punched in the face when they caught her... I actually cheered from my couch.

And of course the deal w/Jack... I wonder how they will handle that... IS there another season? (I hope so!)

Yes, there is another season.

I thought the missle thing was climactic... however, the stuff after was "tying up lose ends".. really no way around it as a director, but I love the show now, and my wife hated it at first "because it's so SLOW!". But at the end of the show, she said "We have to wait until January!?!"

I watched the show through Dilauded colored lenses. Kidney Stones you see.

As I watched the past couple of episodes something about that "evil b*tch terrorist" kept creeping into my head. I honestly believe she's been a recurring cast member since season 1. Palmer must have dogged her in high school or something.

At any rate, I think it was alittle anti-climactic as well but else do you get a missile outta the air but shoot it down? I didn't think Chloe would be breaking out another proprietary encryption algorithm to defeat blowfish...hehehe...that just killed me.

As to how do we get Jack back in the show next season? Easy. Agent Bern has to be rescued and who better to do it than a dead man.

Oh, and Joel, glad to see you adopted Johannes' anti-spam measure. The simplicity is WONDERFUL! Mike Poor was my favorite before Johannes jump over him.

Offset, Depth, Distance, and Within

Without going off the deep-end here and discussing every single Snort rule keyword, I just wanted to touch on a few modifiers that people sometimes misunderstand.  They aren't difficult, and hopefully after this explanation and a few examples, I can clear some of the air around these five modifiers.

The five modifiers that I am talking about are
OffsetDepthDistanceWithinnocaseThese five modifiers are not keywords of themselves, but rather they apply as modifiers to another keyword.  That keyword is "content". The content keyword is one of the easiest pieces of the Snort rules language as all it does is look for a particular string.  So for instance if I wanted to look for the word "joel" within a packet.  A simple:
content:"joel";Would allow me to do that.  The interesting part comes into play when you want to specify where inside of a particular packet you want the string "joel" to be looked for.  If you are running just a plain content ma…

Writing Snort Rules Correctly

Let me start off by saying I'm not bashing the writer of this article, and I'm trying not to be super critical.  I don't want to discourage this person from writing articles about Snort rules.  It's great when people in the Snort community step up and explain some simple things out there.  There are mistakes, it comes with the territory.  If you choose to be one of the people that tries to write Snort rules, you also choose to be someone who wants to learn how to do it better.  That's why I write this blog post, not to bash the writer, but to teach.

I noticed this post today over at the "Tao of Signature Writing" blog, and to be honest I glanced over most of it figuring it was a rehash of things I've already read or things that have already been written from countless people about "Here's how you write Snort rules!".  I scrolled down quickly skimming, not reading at all really, and noticed this part:
Now, let us look at the second questio…
