Find a security hole, get a job?

Some days ago I found a security hole in one of the services that my university runs (UB - University of Barcelona).

I contacted them, and guess what: they listened to what I told 'em!

Well, the problem is solved and now I have a new job. The guy I approached was nice enough, to tell me there was a project to build a website for the catalan chapter of the World Year of Physics. It's just a two-week job, so it won't let me quit my other job (I'll talk about it another day) :( I hope to get a better one and kick it...

So right now I'm learning ASP.NET. I was given the choice to build it either in ASP or ASP.NET (I *do* hate ASP, it wasn't a framework but a nightmare), and since I never looked an ASP.NET line I decided to learn it :)

From what I'm seeing, ASP.NET is really cool, IMHO, Microsoft took it seriously (for the very first time, I guess) and made something that stacks up against J2EE. Java^WC# looks very familiar :>

I'm using Web-Matrix (not so bad), however I'll see if I manage to get mono-xsp running on my NetBSD box (BTW, NetBSD 2.0 will rock)
