Currently four machines fight for space on my desk: an Amiga 3000, running AmigaOS 3.5, a small WinNT box to install all types of software on and try out exploits, a FreeBSD server and a Mac OS X Dual G4/400.
One has to go, between coke cans and ashtrays space becomes scarce and I need at least some inches of air to stack CDs and other crap I buy at Weird Stuff. Guess I'll relocate the BSD server under the stairs, next to his already relocated brother, even tho I'll miss my X Window system.

Six hour debate why releasing the source of something does not make it less secure - and unexpected help from the finance department ("Imagine, 200 unpaid developers....").
Turned in my vacation days for Q1/2001 - Boss not happy, does not accept my request for time off for LWE and DefCon as "required training".
Going public while hundreds of dot.coms file Chap. 11? Are we crazy? Analysts ask strange questions, especially me.
