Oddball: Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
from the movie “Kelly’s Heroes” (1970)
I’m Hal Pomeranz, Independent IT/Computer Security Consultant, Author, and Instructor. There are many places on the web where I cover technical subjects (including my home page, the Command Line Kung Fu blog, the SANS Forensics blog, and the Ubuntu Forum community), but this is the outlet for my opinions about the Information Technology industry issues that we all deal with every day.
Most days I try to be Oddball and try to “say something righteous and hopeful” to combat the concerted attempts of clueless IT management, sleazy vendors, and desperate users to suck the souls out of my fellow IT workers. But some days, my inner Moriarty will not be denied.
