Six Dumbest Ideas in Computer Security

From the Apple Server list, someone posted a link to this article. Great piece of you're interested in computer (specifically server-related) security at all. Any article that can legitimately use the word "badness" gets a thumbs-up in my book.

We're off to Vermilion Bay this weekend for the annual meeting of Cambrian Presbytery (church stuff). Gorgeous location that I'm looking forward to exploring. We're hooking up with our usual group of teens from across NW Ontario for the annual fall youth retreat.

EBay: 800/322-9266
