Find the Man

Apr 30

I got this in an email and thought I would share it. Post your results in a comment.

Find the guy hiding in the beans

This is bizarre – after you find the guy – it’s so obvious. Once you
find him – it’s embarrassing, and you think, Why didn’t I see him
immediately? Doctors have concluded that if you find the man in the
coffee beans in 3 seconds, your right half of your brain is better
developed than most people. If you find the man between 3 seconds and 1
minute, your right half of the brain is developed normally. If you find
the man between 1 minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your
brain is functioning slowly and you need to eat more protein. If you
have not found the man after 3 minutes, the advice is to look for more
of this type of exercise to make that part of the brain stronger!!!

And, yes, the man is really there!!!

Can you Find me?

Second Day of Security Training

Apr 24

The second day of training is already looking better. The last half of the training yesterday was cool. We learned how to use some hacker tools, Brutus, WebScarab, transcoders, the list goes on. Today we are going over SQL Injection techniques and HTTP based attacks and session hacking.

Fun Fun Fun…If your a geek, haha.

Security Training

Apr 23

I’m in Austin right now sitting in the Austin Convention Center listening to a long lecture about security for applications. So far this has been a very basic training but it has potential to really get hard soon…at least I hope it will. We are learning about WebScarab right now…very cool tool.

Also learning about SQL Injection…this one is scary because I’m sure that I have this problem.

Happy Birthday Zoe

My little girl turned five two days ago, April 17th.

She is growing up so fast it makes my heart hurt to just think about it. We are going to have a keg party for her this weekend…;)

All Grown Up

Look at her…all grown up.


Days of Our Lives

Apr 19

I have a question for my readers out there. Have you noticed that the price of gas, groceries, utilities, and I’m sure that I’m missing something else, have all gone up in the past three months? I know that there has been a slow and steady increase in price over the past two years. But it sure has become noticeable to me lately.

When does it stop?

Will it ever stop?

When will salaries increase to match inflation?

Am I just dreaming to think that pay will match the cost of living in the United States? I pray that we can just get a little closer to the cost of living. Living pay check to pay check is not fun but it has become a way of life for me. Every day I hear somebody else complaining about the pay versus the cost of living. I hear “pay check to pay check” entirely too much these days. In the middle of the month I’m thinking about what bill we can hold back and send late just so we can float into the first of the next month…haha. I bet you haven’t heard or done that before…haha.

I was talking to Mari the other day about some of this and she straightened me out. She said that no matter what, we should look at our blessings and not our problems (bills). She said we have a roof over our heads, food in the pantry, vehicles to get us where we need to go, two wonderful children, and each other. I wanted to grip some more but how do you argue with that. Once again she is right. It never ceases to amaze me how she can stay on the positive side of life.

Anyhow, let me hear your thoughts about these days of our lives. The cost of everything versus the salary that we get paid.
