Getting Out Alive

They say half of the battle is in your head.

Have they been in my head?

Ain’t nobody getting out of there alive…

The End is Near

And today’s statement from Corvette-Crazy while on the phone with Make-it-so-Mike….

“Your desktops weren’t ready. So I reverted. OH! And, your directions have a word wrong!

One word!

The desktops not being ready, and a reversion, eh, no big deal. But, one word wrong in the directions and the world ends!

Geekin’ Out

Normally, you’ll find me posting about funny crap that happens at work. Today though…I’m going to truly geek out on you.

I have been a HUGE fan of  Hak5 since I first discovered them. I found them in my search for a method to test our companies Cyber Security Awareness. I had been struggling to find a successful way to raise awareness about inserting jump drives/thumb drivers/etc. into the machines at work. We could do USB drops and see how many were returned but, we didn’t know the statistics on how many were being viewed on machines at work.

My search led me to the Hak5 Rubber Ducky You have to check it out! Especially if your job includes any kind of Cyber Security. You also have to check out their other cool toys. You will not be disappointed!

Let me say right now I am in no way affiliated with Hak5. I make no money from sending you to their site. In fact, I go extremely broke every time I visit their site….It’s an addiction…I will seek help…eventually! 🙂

Don’t go to their site just to buy the fun stuff either. They have tons of videos, pod casts, their forum is a wealth of information and has some pretty awesome people. If you’re a pentester, network admin, systems analyst, heck, anything IT related you will find something useful on the site.

Check it out! You won’t be disappointed.

I’ll end my geek-out there 😉

Team Effort

On days the IT team is feeling semi-social we venture forth into the great unknown of Lunch!

Doesn’t sound exciting, I know. Until you realize the average lunch escapade for any IT member involves:

  1. Bringing your own lunch from home – and eating at your desk.
  2. Hitting fast food drive thru as quickly as possible – and eating at your desk.
  3. Keeping snack items stashed away in various drawers and cabinets – and eating at your desk.
  4. Running home to escape people and grab some yummy vittles – and avoiding your desk.

On this, day of days, however, the entire IT team decided we’d harken forth to a local eatery. Traveling, en-pack, to El Torito we left the dark recesses of our caves.

During lunch we unanimously decide there would be no talk of work.

It may not have been the wisest choice.

Our topics of conversation ranged from politics to midget porn to watcher programs to nanny cams to graveyard shifts to computer forensics to Corvette-Crazies latest date….

The poor gentleman who sat across from us spent much of his meal shaking his head. At some points I think he actually wanted to chime in….at others….I’m sure he questioned how our minds work.

Still….a break from the office, with the crew, especially on a Monday, is always welcome.

Pirating in a Whole Other Light…

I woke up in the middle of the night to see the silhouette of a skull and crossbones hovering above me.

It didn’t take long to realize what this means: I am a pirate.

After a little bit longer, I realized that it was not a skull and crossbones, but the shadow of my ceiling fan on the ceiling.

So, um…

1.) Does anyone need an eye patch?

2.) What’s the best way to get rum out of a pillow case?

3.) Can you get a CAT scan on a Sunday?

Have a good day, wherever you arrrrrrgh.
