Southpark Stdio

I guess we all have to do this now, so here's my self-portrait. After pointing my kids to this, they and their friends spend a whole afternoon creating images of themselves, their mothers and fathers. Well, I preempted them and did myself before they had a chance.

Blowout!



Sometimes completely unexpected events take place such as this little mishap with our car; modern MPVs are pretty forgiving and you might not immediately notice that you've got a flat, especially not if the driver hasn't driven the particular vehicle for a while, you have the fans blowing and are playing music at the same time. Until you hit the highway, that is. So, what happened next? A lot of noise and a rather poignant smell of burning rubber before we even hit 50 or 60 and in the few seconds we figured out that we had to pull over, the tire give way ; it had half left the rim before we came to a full stop on the hard shoulder. And here's what's left of it:
blown out tire

With cars zooming past at 120kmph(75mph) on a fairly narrow stretch of highway on a cold dark night with wife and kids in the car, you feel like someone has just painted a target sign on you and you anxiously wait until the help arrives. And they did, within 5 or 10 minutes.

As_I_Ve_Been_Posting

As I've been posting to Usenet since 1988, I didn't think it would be so hard to start a weblog; but in Usenet I have been mostly reactive, replying to other people's questions, answers and thoughts.

A weblog feels like talking into thin air.

As I work specifically for Solaris Security I will be focussing on a few things that I have done for Solaris 10 which I think are neat. I'll try to explain some of the design decision we made and how and why they are different from, e.g., Trusted Solaris and other systems with similar features. Stay tuned.

(And yes, I will update the Solaris FAQ too, in a while)
