Can't find on Google If you can't find something on Google, it should be either out of Internet or you search for it in a wrong way. Well, nowadays everything is on the web, isn't it? :) Amazingly there is a community of people who honestly confess, that they can't use the search engines.
Most of the time, you punch what you want to know into Google, and you instantly get what you're looking for. But have you ever had that experience, where you try query after query and no matter how hard you try, you just can't find what you're looking for? That's what this site is for -- because the things Google can't find is more interesting than the stuff Google can find.

The Six Dumbest Ideas in Computer Security

The Six Dumbest Ideas in Computer Security. An amazing article that should be of interest for the network administrators. Pay attention to the "The Minor Dumbs" section - it is the funniest part of the text.

And, thanks to the fact that it's a topic of public concern and a "safe issue" for politicians, we can expect a flood of computer security-related legislation from lawmakers. So: computer security is definitely still a "hot topic." But why are we spending all this time and money and still having problems?
