All this New Orleans News

The Mayor's bright idea of emergency recovery was to have everyone go to the Superdome. Well that's fine, but where was the water? Food? Electricity? Lights? Security? I mean, come on! Your one (or two, the convention center) buildings that you wanted people to go, and you don't have a way to help the people that go there? You don't have a way to get them out?

The buses! Oh, the buses. Everyone has seen it by now, but in case you haven't, I stole this picture from "impeachblanco.org" (which IMO, is not a bad idea, impeach the chick who was at fault) That was the way to get ev…

Steve Gibson is a tool

Steve Gibson, grc.com is a tool.

Exactly. EXACTLY.

Comment Spam

It started the other day, about the 2nd of September, I started receiving Comment Spam hits. Hundreds of them. Just shy of a thousand hits a day. It's crazy... Of those of you that don't know what a comment spam hit is.. here's a traffic dump:

See the wierd "x-aaaaaaaaa" user-agent string? See the referer? Some blackjack site? Welp, I don't know why they have suddenly followed me over here, but they have.

I'm considering doing one of several things.

B) Changing the DNS name to something like esler.is-a-geek.org
C) I don't know.

In the meantime I have made some changes to the IDS.

A) A secret

Busy

I haven't written anything in awhile. Been a bit busy. I'm in Portland, Oregon right now, enjoying the nice weather. Looking out my window at Mount St. Helens and Mount Hood. (yes, it is very nice)

Apple released their iPod nano yesterday. Very nice Click here for a picture Thing is sweet.

I just confirmed my reservations on Delta and I already have my first class seats. Quite happy about that. I think I will get promoted (ehhh) to Diamond Status through Hilton next month (if I keep this stay rate up...)

*yawn* hungry..
