oooooooh lawdy, doncha spoof my mack adresses!

It's good listening to geek talk and having no clue what they're talking about. I mean .. yeah .. I get the hacking the wireless thing... but the actual terms..woohoo. Much silliness.

Wish I'd been around last night. I definitely would have called in on this show. I dunno what I would have said... but I'd have thought of something. Maybe just point out that because a large segment of the population isn't prepared to use wireless doesn't make it evil. It just means that people need to learn more. There was a point in time not too long ago when most people weren't equipped to protect themselves when using a usual dial up connection.

Paranoia is okey dokey and all. But the idea that someone would target a private individual for hacking (someone who isn't a script kiddie who's just scanning ports randomly.. and hopefully if you're running wireless, you've got a firewall that can deal with that) is absurd.
Unless you've pissed off some hackers who just want to piss you off or get retribution.

I dunno.
You geeky people tell me how wrong I am.

    I think I need to remember to keep the LJ open in the background. Download another client for it and actually run the thing. Maybe that will increase…
