I need to go out in a few minutes and do some final Christmas shopping before the rest of the crowd wakes up and realizes shops are open. But before I do I wanted to take a few minutes and share several of the articles I’m reading right now. If I actually had the time to blog about everything I read, I’d have to get paid for it because I wouldn’t have time to do anything else.
- Budgeting for Web Application Security – You mean just saying “I need more” isn’t a good answer?
- Software [In]security: Software Security Top 10 Surprises – I think Gary, Brian and Sammy will pull some more information out of the study they’re doing, but even if this article is it, I think it’ll be time well spent. I like point 9, which states that you’ve actually got to think about the metrics you’re using rather than just throw up some numbers to see what sticks.
- How to Rebuild your Computer and Reinstall Windows Without Headache – I’d personally say it’s impossible to rebuild a computer without any headaches, but this article shows you how to minimize them. I may be doing this in the not too distant future myself as my wife’s computer ages.
- Why do Undersea cables seem to get severed in bunches? – This article isn’t much by itself, but it points to a really long article that does explain how the undersea cables go in and why they seem to be delicate. Plan to have an hour or so if you’re going to read the whole story.
