Japan photos: first set.

So, where are all the photos?

I’ve actually been back 3 weeks since my trip in Asia and I hadn’t yet uploaded the photos to my photo site… that’s mostly because the application I wrote to upload photos to it is broken these days (I changed web hosts and changed the structure of my site). I am currently rewriting it, but it takes time.

In the meantime I got an invite to Picasa Web — Google’s new alternative to Flickr — so I decided to go ahead and up load my photos there. I’m not putting them up all in one shot, but you can see the best of the photos I took there. The first installment consists of photos I took in Kyoto and Nara.

It’s like asking a car salesman if you should buy that new coupe.

The dark and questionable world of computer malware research. When one thinks about it, does it really make any sense to completely trust information on malware that’s published solely by companies that know they can make a buck by selling you the cure to the problems they discover? Wouldn’t it make perfect business sense to make up “new vulnerabilities” out of thin air so they can scare more people into buying their wares?
