You mean the poor excuse for a rail system in Canada? Via has fallen into near non-existence in recent years. You might as well try and blow up a covered bridge out in the middle of nowhere to disrupt traffic flow.

If anything were to happen to the covered bridge in Hartland, New Brunswick I assure you, it would be very disruptive to the flow of traffic.

Submission + - SIEM Not Dead Yet: Two Big Acquisitions Today (securityweek.com)

wiredmikey writes: "Contrary to what some people are saying, security information and event management (SIEM) solutions don't appear to be dead just yet.

Today, two acquisitions of leading SIEM vendors were announced, suggesting that SIEM is still important and very useful for enterprise security, and something many companies will continue to invest in in the foreseeable future.

Today IBM said it would acquire Q1 Labs, a Waltham, Massachusetts-based provider of SIEM solutions. Additionally, McAfee said it would be acquiring NitroSecurity, a provider of SIEM solutions with a special area of expertise in critical infrastructure security.

These two acquisitions, combined with HP’s $1.5 billion acquisition of ArcSight just over a year ago, make it pretty clear that despite some recent arguments and reports, SIEM isn’t dead, at least not yet."

Submission + - IBM makes SIEM play with Q1 Labs acquisition (itpro.co.uk)

twoheadedboy writes: "A year ago Q1 Labs was adamant it was not for sale. Now it has agreed to be acquired by IBM. Q1 Labs is set to be rolled into the new IBM Security Systems division as part of the proposed acquisition, with Q1 Labs CEO Brendan Hannigan to lead that department once the deal is closed. It marks a significant about turn by Q1 Labs, which claimed it wanted to be the "Oracle of the security intelligence world" just last September. Nevertheless, the big players are making major moves in the SIEM space, with Intel and HP both making notable acquisitions in recent times."

"Even if Smith is lying, it makes you wonder how long it will be until Hollywood starts to recycle actors as well as scripts"

I think that last part should read "to recycle actors like they do scripts". Hollywood certainly doesn't recycle scripts well.
