Tech - Madpenguin

This is slightly techhy-geeky. Some of you may know I am going to Las Vegas this week. There are several reasons, the two major ones being our friend Tracie is getting married on Monday (Christine is the Maid of Honor), and my wife and I celebrate 15 years of wedded bliss on Thursday (by seeing Penn and Teller). But on Tusday, I am seeing Madadmin, CTO of Madpenguin.com for no other reason that for great minds to meet (but he'll have to do with mine). Madadmin, aka Adam Doxtater, is one of the authors on THE definitive books on Snort, an open source network intrusion detection system, ""Snort 2.1 Intrusion Detection". I'd love to say we'd discuss all manner of IDS, but he said a few months ago... after banging his head to get the new edition of the book out on time... "I don't want to hear anything more about Snort ever again!"

Actually, we're probably going to shoot the bull and talk about all manner of nothing, which is fine with me. He works security stuff at the MGM Grand, which I'll love to hear about. I'll tell him about where I work, and wait for him to eventually stop laughing.

Another reason? Sean and Louann are coming to Vegas with us! Woo-hoo!

Punkwalrus.com and this blog probably won't be updated during the week (depends on my Internet connectivity at the Luxor). I'll be back Saturday, but due to a serious red-eye flight and time zone hell, we're leaving Vegas near midnight (PDT) on Friday, and arriving at Dulles at 8am (EDT) on Saturday.... which means I'll probably sleep all Saturday when I get home.
