Congratulations Dermont. The former Ironforge Sentinel gas hit the big eight oh. Good work Johnny. He’s working on the video now. I’ll post it when he gets it done.
I’m having a grand old time leveling another frost mage on WoW. I really enjoy the lower level content. The zones and quest lines in the old world are really well done. I’ve been trying to explore new zones and follow different story lines than other dwarf or gnome characters. Once I hit level 25 the world became very huge and there were a number of places to choose from.
While I’d like to see new content in the old world I don’t think there is a shortage of things for people to do whe leveling an alt or a new character on another realm.

Executive summary of the article: Audio recordings of security clearance interviews are stored on an un-encrypted hard drive that goes missing…
This illustrates a break down in not just one system, but several. The obvious failure to protect physical security is bad. The hard drive should have been a controlled item, with proper labeling, and inventoried with the rest of the equipment.
The infosec controls were bad. You’ve got sensitive data on a drive, you should encrypt the drive.
The admin controls were also bad. Why is the material recorded? Why are the recordings kept?
All this badness combines to create a really horrible problem for the RAF. Someone, somewhere, now has audio of RAF employees that can be used to discredit the service or to exploit the individuals. Even if the RAF pulls the clearances and re-assigns the employees, now the RAF has to scramble to replace people in trusted positions. It’s a bad day for the RAF…
After listening to The Instance #145 and doing a little browsing, it seems that Blizzard is issuing some strangely unBlizzard-like take down notices. Mod writers are being asked not to ask for money, iPhone application developers are being told to cease and desist and a German web comic was told to take down a comic.
I’ll miss the Character app for iPhone. It was really sweet and worked much better than trying to use the Armory from mobile Safari. The link to the iPhone Character’s App notice is here:
Is this the end of Blizzard as we know it? Is the Activision culture finally taking hold and changing the company? What does this mean to WoW and Blizzard?
I don’t know. I hope not. I like what Blizzard has done and I haven’t played anything from Activision since Pitfall (Yep, I’m that old.)
I’ve entered in grades for all lab write-ups that I have found in my inbox. If you still don’t have a grades for something, send me the write up tonight or tomorrow. If you are having troubles with my VTC email account, use my gmail jackfs4 at gmail.com.
I will do one last round of lab grading tomorrow night and then Thursday is the day I submit final grades to the registrar.
- If you have already sent it, send it again.
- If submitted with a partner, send it with your name on it
- Don’t ask for a reply, I’m grading too many to honor requests for “can you let me know you got it,” sorry.
Thank you all students who are emailing me lab reports. Please email me anything you don’t gave a grade for in BB. Don’t fret about being late. We’ve had a number of mail server and BB issues this semester. The key here is to get credit for work done.
The final for CIS2230 is posted on blackboard and ready for students. You can take the exam early if you wish. Please work alone. The exam is open book and open note. Do not share answers or questions with other students. Select the BEST answer for the question. Good luck and please email me if you cannot see the exam on blackboard.
