Big Brother

Ok, it has happend. I was toughed I live in a democracy and now the Belgian State has given the ISPs the order to block a certain website. I don't care about the content on that website. I know people can have their proper opinion about it but the fact that my governement limits my freedom on the internet looks to me that the so called democracy is evolving into a totalitarian system. What will be next? Blocking google because you can find "bad" things as well on the internet or editing Wikipedia because there are some dark pages in the history of Belgium.

The Dude

The Dude is a nice little tool from Microtik that I love to use if I need to see what boxes are on a subnet and I want to see it graphically. It is nothing spectacular and I know there are other tools out there but I simply like it.

According to Microtik you can run it under Wine but I tried a couple of times following their instructions and it failed each time.

Common Weakness Enumeration

At Mitre you can find these nice definitions on common weaknesses in software. I think this is handy if you are trying to do risk management.
