It would certainly be nice if this turned out to be a cure. I'm tired of avoiding the sun and being ultra pale.

After botching the 10 mile run that was actually supposed to be 11 this weekend, I feel a little better. Not eating at all the day I run before I run helps hugely.

Computer Forensics

I'm taking a course on how to ferret out malicious wrongdoers all week. Sometimes it feels more like a course on how to do bad stuff and not get caught. It's all how you look at it I guess. Have you ever heard of Alternate Data Streams? Super scary fun way to hide data on Windows in a way that no normal users can see it. I'm thinking they'll be a great way to hide TrueCrypt executables.

LTO Label Notes

LTO tape cartridge standard label dimensions are 3.11+/-0.031 by 0.669+/-0.031 inches. The barcode should be horizontally centered and 2.74 inches (maximum) by 0.437 inches (minimum). It should use Code 39 and be 8 characters long not counting the stop/start character (when using the code 39 font, make sure to surround the other 8 chars with *, eg *L3FULL01*).
