California wants WiFi warning stickers

California wants WiFi warning stickers: "California wants WiFi warning stickers

8/31/2006 11:58:08 AM, by Nate Anderson

California is getting serious about network security—well, serious enough to legislate stickers. AB 2415 has cleared the General Assembly and now heads to Governor Schwarzenegger's desk for his signature. It's an attempt by the state to make sure that consumers know how to activate security features on their WiFi routers in order to prevent personal information from being accessed 'by unauthorized users who piggyback onto their network connection.'

The bill requires that all WiFi routers manufactured after October 1, 2007 and sold in the state of California come with a prominent warning about the dangers of unsecured routers and include instructions for password protecting the devices. While most manufacturers include this information in the product manual, this will no longer be enough. Instead, the state wants the warnings to be impossible to miss, and that's where the stickers come in.

Vendors are given two basic choices: 1) they can include a security warning in the software setup routine or they can 2) attach a 'temporary warning sticker' to the device that must be peeled off before the router can function.

Eight Ways to Quickly Resize Images: etc: quick links to good stuff

Eight Ways to Quickly Resize Images: etc: quick links to good stuff: "Eight Ways to Quickly Resize Images
September 20, 2006

Image resizing tools aren't just for people who don't have Photoshop, or the non tech savvy. I often take screen capture snippets for posting to this blog and if they exceed the width of my content area, I need to resize them. And I don't want to open up Photoshop (or another image program) to do it. Call me impatient or lazy or whatever, but that just seems like killing a fly with a hammer."

Powers of Ten Day

Powers of Ten Day: "CELEBRATE OCTOBER 10, 2006
Why a Powers of Ten Day?

EarthIn 1977, Charles and Ray Eames made a nine-minute film called Powers of Ten that still has the capacity today to expand the way we think and view our world. Over ten million people have since seen the film and it continues to be shown in classrooms, business meetings, festivals and retreats everywhere. Starting with a sleeping man at a picnic, the film takes the viewer on a journey out to the edge of space and then back into a carbon atom in the hand of the man picnic, all in a single shot. It is an unforgettable experience."

Darik's Boot and Nuke (Hard Drive Disk Wipe)

Darik's Boot and Nuke (Hard Drive Disk Wipe): "Darik's Boot and Nuke

Darik's Boot and Nuke ('DBAN') is a self-contained boot floppy that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.

DBAN is a means of ensuring due diligence in computer recycling, a way of preventing identity theft if you want to sell a computer, and a good way to totally clean a Microsoft Windows installation of viruses and spyware. DBAN prevents or thoroughly hinders all known techniques of hard disk forensic analysis."
