Somewhat Interesting Infographic

It seems that password theft is up. I’m not sure this is a surprise to anyone who reads this site, but it is so much easier than it used to be with all of the malware out there, better compute platforms, botnets, phishing, etc. It has gotten to the point where I have had to start using a password manager, simply due to the sheer number of passwords I need to track and the complexity rules I choose to use implementing passwords.

2012 SysAdmin Day

Image located via google image search. I have no idea who owns it, but it does sum it all up. This Friday (tomorrow, July 27, 2012) is System Administrator Appreciation Day (SAAD acronym). While not a well recognized event outside of the community, it’s our day and we should celebrate. I sent a note to the mailing list for an informal get together after work on Friday and it looks like a few people will be there.
