Almost Army Proof.

Yoga Babes Included or Yoga by Diamond Dallas Page


Walking through the local BX (Base Exchange for those not in the military, think tiny wal-mart) I happened upon this book Yoga for Regular Guys.
Now I have been going to the gym for the past 3 months lifting weights, working the abs, doing a little cardio. But I had not added anything to my workout to promote balance and flexibility. Yoga provides that, and the best part about this particular book (aside from the fact that it's written by a pro wrestler and has a forward by Rob Zombie) is the use of yoga as an exercise and not a path to enlightenment. Granted many people may take offense at my last statement but yoga, as a functional approach to balance and flexibility should not be underestimated.

It's here!!


Apple just released it's new laptop the MacbookPro . . . drool.

It sports a new dual core intel processor, built in video camera, and a much improved power connector (and those who have used and abused a laptop know sometimes the power connector is the first thing to go). And if the rumors are true, there is a utility that runs windows apps in OSX that does not require an emulator or other trickery . . . mabye WINE?

Just saw this over at MAKE:, a podcast devoted to security issues.

"SploitCast, the podcast for hackers, geeks, and the security paranoid. We are a group of students and IT professionals that have decided to start a downloadable talk show. SploitCast will discuss a wide variety of topics; these include, but are not limited to, new vulnerabilities, exploit code, security and technology news, and possibly even cute little bunny rabbits (but don't hold your breath). The SploitCast crew will also be conducting interviews and round table discussions with other members of the security industry."


NIST Securtiy Checklists


Well, yet another site devoted to security guides and procedures, this time it's from NIST: National Institute for Standards and Technology. [link]

It occured to me one night (after spending 36 hours installing XP on user laptops) that there has to be a better way to install windows. Not only windows but applications patches and service packs. Well msfn.org comes to the rescue with their "Definitive How-To Guide: Unattended Windows". This is a must read site for anyone who installs windows more than 2 times a month. This will save a lot of time and heartbreak. Not only is How-To full of great information it is also the best looking guide I have seen on the internet and other faq and guide writers could do far worse than mimic it's style.

Here is a neat little service that allows you to "email" attachments upto 1GB . . .
It works by allowing you to upload a file to the yousendit servers and then emails a text message with a link to that file.[link]
