second the motion. I enjoyed learning to code and learning to troubleshoot code and logic at the same time.
Since I have a security angle to my job, I wanted to ask: if you are practicing your coding at home is your home system secure? will your home coded app be put into the production system 'as is'? (creating a back door if your system is already compromised.) maybe it's a dumb question and a moot point, but seeing how a home brewed app (read developed in-house) used by a major commercial entity just gave up 400K credit cards, it leaves me to wonder what the process was all the way thru the development process, which we may never fully know. on the other hand, my hobbies tend away from system administration so I have pretty good separation, or I would be typing this in from the loonie bin.
I don't want head phones, or ear buds. How can I eavesdrop on all the fun conversations going on around me, and make my snide comments if I cannot hear what others are saying? And, once the pun war starts, how would I ever keep up...
that was the first thing that jumped out at me. 'looks like a couple other news sites I've seen...' I actually like
/. the way it is currently. It took me quite a while to get over the most recent change. but I'm used to the way the stories are presented and I don't need pics with the stories on the font page, if I want pics, I'll click thru to the story! I really like the distinctive look Slashdot.org owns in this current iteration. please keep it the way it is. thanks!
I have a daughter attending Utah Valley University (blatant plug) in web development. (I tried to discourage her being a system admin and all...) And she's been involved in projects dealing with reformatting for tablets and smart phones, html5 and so on. So I think you should check out the schools available to you and their curriculum to achieve your goals. I know when I went to college, there wasn't a web without a spider and computer science was learning programming languages and defining OSs and nitty gritty stuff like that. (yeah, dinosaurus irrelivantus and i did take a cobol class right after pascal and fortran) Of course, as stated above, get an account and put up a site. show the world what you've got, but try to keep it from the hackers who love to fix your site for you...
Trailrunner7 writes "A new Linux rootkit has emerged and researchers who have analyzed its code and operation say that the malware appears to be a custom-written tool designed to inject iframes into Web sites and drive traffic to malicious sites for drive-by download attacks. The rootkit is designed specifically for 64-bit Linux systems, and while it has some interesting features, it does not appear to be the work of a high-level programmer or be meant for use in targeted attacks. The Linux rootkit does not appear to be a modified version of any known piece of malware and it first came to light last week when someone posted a quick description and analysis of it on the Full Disclosure mailing list. That poster said his site had been targeted by the malware and some of his customers had been redirected to malicious sites."
Seems to me one could spend 80-100 hours a week trying to instigate culture change...

Derek's boot and nuke. cleans up everything. the other thing that you shouldn't really ever do is store debit/credit card numbers in browser cache. it's almost like giving away your money. good luck!
we should shoot a water cannon at that crater and store some frozen water for later use!
I'm a System Administrator, you insensitive clod! or is it I'm an insensitive clod, you System Administrator! eh, either way...

Major software updates include Gnome 3.4, GIMP 2.8, and GCC 4.7. The full feature list can be found here. Personally, I still find Gnome 3 to be an 'unholy mess' so I'm loving XFCE with Openbox."

from the Blade Runner mythos. Pris and Rachel especially. But I did enjoy Rutger Hauer's work as Roy... 'time to die...'
I thought it said excrement and got all excited, then I read it again and didn't vote.
