"Pyra sparked up its popular site again Friday after shutting it down earlier in the day in response to a hacker attack.
The hack compromised individual accounts, locking out site users from their blogs.
Pyra has taken the machine that was compromised offline and restored the Blogger site from its redundant servers, said Jason Shellen, the company's director of business development. Users whose accounts were compromised should be able to access them again, he said. "

The Logical Volume Manager for Linux
Topic: Computers 2:01 pm EDT, Oct 21, 2002

"LVM supports enterprise level volume management of disk and disk subsystems by grouping arbitrary disks into volume groups. The total capacity of volume groups can be allocated to logical volumes, which are accessed as regular block devices.
Further, LVM provides logical separation of storage, the ability to move data from one physical device to another while on-line, and dynamic block device resizing. LVM also enables system administrators to upgrade systems, remove failing disks, reorganize workloads, and adapt to changing system needs, through a minimum amount of time and effort. "

Microsoft: Does it pay to be safe? - Tech News -
Topic: Computers 10:14 am EDT, Oct  9, 2002

Microsoft posts four security alerts - Tech News -
Topic: Computers 1:06 pm EDT, Oct  3, 2002

"Microsoft issued four security bulletins overnight, related to its Windows operating system and SQL Server database software.
The company said late Wednesday that a bug in a Windows help file could let a hacker seize control of a person's computer. The bug affects most currently supported versions of Windows: 98, 98 Second Edition, Millennium Edition, XP, NT 4, NT 4 Terminal Server Edition and 2000. Microsoft reported two separate problems with the help file system, which warranted issuing a "critical" alert.
Microsoft also issued two "moderate" alerts, one identifying two separate security bugs involving compressed files and the other three problems with Microsoft's Services for Unix 3. A fourth critical alert advised of a cumulative patch for protecting SQL Server 7 and 2000 from hackers."

What horrible products they sell.

Mac OS X Switcher Stories
Topic: Computers 3:08 pm EDT, Aug 22, 2002

A few weeks ago, I wrote a weblog entry about Microsoft's perception that Mac OS X uptake is too slow, versus my experience that users are moving to OS X in droves.

I decided to do an informal poll. I sent a message to Dave Farber's IP (Interesting People) mailing list, asking:

I'd love to hear from IP readers who have adopted OS X. Were you switching from OS 9, Windows, Linux, or Unix? Are you still using your old system as well, or fully switched?

Read the results...Most people I know is all saying the same thing. /me licks Mac OS X. :)
