Internet Down

         The Internet at my house is down, so I mostly like won't be updating for a while. I guess it is no big loss, but I wanted to let you guys know. I'm probably going to have to get a new computer and I do not have the money right now. Hopeful, I'll work hard all summer and get the money I need and it won't be a summer long blackout.

UPDATE [6/5/11]: The Internet connection in my house is working somewhat, but it is still dropping out 
                               on a daily basis for some time (though not as severe as it was). So... I will update
                               the site sparingly.

Sony Hearing: Threat of Data Theft

          This is a very insightful hearing on the dangers of data theft. It was suppose to be the Sony hearing for the breach of the Playstation Network, but Sony didn't show. The expert gave insight on what company can do to stop this from happening in the future and some reasons to why companies don't have proper defences already in place. It is really interesting and not boring and most of all give you a lot of information on the matter. I suggest giving it a watch. The run time is 1 hour 54 minutes, so don't start it five minute before your favorite show starts.
