Starting this coming Saturday, October 1st I begin taking classes again at Western Governor's University.
This will be my second attempt at starting a degree at an online university. The first was through Capella. And as I'm writing this blog entry, there is an advert for Capella right here.
The reason I was not successful with Capella was that the course I took was dependent on time spent "in class". As well as dependent on group projects.
It seems that after a few module updates, I am no longer receiving the Share to Facebook function when updating stories and blog postings is no longer available. I see that the code is in the modules contributed examples, but not fully integrated. Also the examples enable too many features that I actually don't want or have found a different/better looking way to provide them.
Yesterday I decided to see what it would take to get my twitter robot @HackThisOrg up and running again. I found the Net::Twitter perl module when looking for simple OAuth functions. The follow portion of the robot lives again.
When I first wrote the robot, I didn't want to use modules other than the LWP module because I wanted to see if I could get the functions I was looking for in a more simple fashion without having to download and compile a ton of code. I wasn't exactly following the "Be Lazy" mantra of Perl modules.
Yesterday was the 2011 Cornerstones of Trust conference in Foster City, and we had a great turnout. There were 29 sponsor booths from various information security vendors. Four great tracks that were mostly full.
During one of the track session that I attended during the event was the Computer Incident Response Planning session presented by Neal McCarthy.
I was super excited when this came out, however, the last few updates have made this game unplayable. I've been trying to play for several days now and all of my games have blank playing boards and scores of 0.
Today my wife asked me why I resigned all my games.
I didn't resign any games. Come on Zynga, what's going on with this now?
I am still seeing and hearing a fair amount of tweets and speculation about what the RSA Breach that was announced by Art Coviello, Executive Chairman, RSA.
There seems to be a lot of people worried about this particular breach stating that the RSA SecurID tokens have become "useless" or advocating that you request that RSA replace every one.
If you're a member of the Information Security community, you're probably already aware of the breach that occured to RSA Security with regards to their SecureID Token two-factor authentication solution is used by millions including government and private sector organizations.
Over the weekend, I started to integrate my website EdwardFrye.com into social media sites and added icons to the site so you can find me on those social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
Now I have enabled my website so you can sign into it using your Twitter or Facebook account to post comments directly on my site if you want.
So I just learned today that they are mostly done with the construction in my office, but I won't likely have furnature in there until next week. Have cabin fever really bad need to get out of the house this weekend.
I want to get up to either SF or Yosemite again to get some images.
