Air Force to Get “Cyber Sidearms”

Shouldn’t the Air Force have more than this already implemented? Hopefully this software doesn’t take lots of tax money and never go anywhere or even get implemented.

Air Force to Get "Cyber Sidearms"mlbtaz writes to mention that techs working on Air Force networks will soon be getting “cyber sidearms” to help alert them to potential security breaches. “The tool could be a small piece of software installed on Air Force computers or it could be a simple mechanism for taking a screenshot and relaying it to security experts, said Maj. Gen. William Lord, who will soon take command of the Air Force’s provisional Cyber Command. In an interview this week, Lord said service officials have not made a final decision about which technology they will use for the program. “

I don't understand why Microsoft has such a lazy stance on security, I want to use Internet Explorer just as securely as any other browser.

Samsung’s Sexy Hybrid Hard Drive

Good Idea, but is it practical? Will there really be a difference while booting and loading data? Waiting for Solid State Disk's will be a better choice, Dell's new M series laptops will have 32G SSD's.
Samsung’s Sexy Hybrid Hard Drive -

hybridhdd_lg.jpgNo, this hybrid hard drive isn’t actually sexy (though it is topless) and it is difficult to get excited about hard drives in general. But, since Samsung’s still an underdog in the category, the company’s doing its best to innovate the space instead of just cranking out larger sizes (though it did that, too). The 2.5-inch MH80 notebook hard drives feature 256MB of integrated flash memory to help you boot faster (though only about 10 seconds faster), wake from hibernation mode faster and get up to 25 percent more battery life for your laptop (though that’s compared to Samsung’s own M80 HDDs).

lighttpd won’t start and doesn’t output or log any error message

I was working on a server and for some reason lighttpd wouldn't start for some odd reason. Running it via Debian/Ubuntu "invoke-rc.d lighttpd start" or "/etc/init.d/lighttpd start" wouldn't reveal an error message or anything in the log.

I hop'd on irc.freenode.net and put some information about my problem in the channel #lighttpd channel.
