Category: Just For Fun has implemented it’s “Naughty List”! The list should be visible on the right side of the site and scrolls through attempted attacks on our servers. The information is released to illustrate just how frequently bad people try bad things. We hope this will provide some entertainment while also encouraging others to be diligent in keeping their network assets, especially those facing the internet, safe and secure. We are working on building statistical analysis and graphs to represent the scrolling data in real time as well. Check the list frequently to get an idea of where typical attacks are coming from and what protocols they are going after! The List updates about every 30 min.


Wish I got the cover out last night…

Nope, not going anywhere today. In my previous posts, I mentioned there are only a handful of weather conditions I won’t ride in. The last few days I have discovered two more.

1. Freezing rain – there is almost no hope for keeping a bike upright in freezing rain conditions.
2. No plowed roads – I don’t know what is going on with the city of Provo, but it has been snowing for almost 10 straight hours, and I haven’t seen a single plow or salt/sand truck. Snow is compacting on the road ways and refreezing. That spells disaster for a bike.

Headed off to work today, after an un-eventful MLK 3 day weekend. Most of you reading this probably don’t know I like to ride motorcycles. I like riding motorcycles so much, I do it year-round! I have been scoffed at for declaring my devotion to two-wheeled motoring for some time now. People just don’t believe you CAN ride a motorcycle year-round. Well, you can! And I have been doing it for years! There are days, temperatures, weather and road conditions that make one-wheel-drive more of a death trap than a challenge, on those days, I ask the wife to drive me in her car. For all the other days between late October and early April, there are some tricks to get by.



That, is my ceiling fan. In all of it’s glory. I am sentenced to my bed with Gatorade and Vics until I get better. Yup, I’m sick. So I figured now is a good of a time as any to try to post from my tablet using my WordPress app. So far I really like the way WordPress integrates with my android devices. I am a little worried that I am quickly approaching the limitations of WordPress. One of the main reasons I stuck with Drupal for so long was the decent IRC chatroom support by other Drupal community members. Today I spent some time on the #wordpress channel and found a lively bunch of WordPress users also willing to help a n00b out. Continue Reading
