Further consolidation in the security industry

In the beginning, there was iSecure, and it was purchased by SecureNet shortly before I came on board. Shortly before I left to go back to University for a year, Betrusted bought SecureNet, and then bought SecureNet's main competitior, 90east. Now, Betrusted and some company called TruSecure have apparently merged and will become Cybertrust.

Quite the consolidation. Film at 11.

Sudo bites

Well, it's really more of a PEBKAC issue, or proof that one should not attempt system administration after running a Fun Run.

I noticed that the broadcast address on daedalus was incorrect, so I added a broadcast line to my /etc/network/interfaces and went sudo ifdown eth0; ifup eth0 and immediately went "D'oh!". Not the best thing to do on a Sunday evening to a box a 1000 kilometres away in an unmanned (on the weekend) datacentre.
