DarkSide 'till I Die...
The Last Hope Conference started today in New York city. I'm not there.I've been walking around Norwich pretending that I am, obviously that's not going to work. The conference is for three days so if it's not too late you might want to listen in on 'Radio Statler' a live stream from the conference at Hotel Pennsylvania.( Radio Statler )
I was pleased to read during my morning coffee an article in the Guardian newspaper, about user updates to the firewall 'ZoneAlarm' to patch a recently discovered design flaw in DNS (Domain Name Server), of course it is all thanks to Dan Kaminsky that people even know about this. There was even a link to his website Doxpara.com
I walked to the University again today to try make my formal application to the Computer Science course. There were lots of Graduate students in their degree gowns floating about campus. It was a wasted journey.
I did some meditation practice today and it helped me understand that my previous plan of telling everyone I meet to Fuck Off was not a good one. Why the hell is everyone saying I want to go to Japan and, "I'm interested in the culture"...wtf ?
I forgot to look for a part-time job..
Coming out of the Buddhist Centre I was still in a mild daze, when I heard someone call my voice. I recognized the face but I could remember how I knew the person. I assumed it was someone I had worked with previously. He started to talk about motorbikes..heh, I suddenly remembered he was the other guy I did my Motorcycle CBT with. It's so strange that he still knew my name after meeting for like one day in the beginning of the year....Heheh!!
WIMAX promises longer range and greater bandwidth at a lower cost. It is used to deliver last-mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to wired broadband such as cable or DSL. The take-up of WIMAX subscribes seem to be coming from Asia Pacific countries with Europe as always lagging behind. Countries like Japan and South Korea seems to be leading the WIMAX way. March 2008 saw 'UQ Communications', a new Japanese mobile WIMAX service provider, announce it intended to deliver a nationwide comercial WIMAx service by 2009. A trial service is to be set in February 2009. They predict that 90 percent of the population will be covered by 2012. Japanese consumers should be able to enjoy high speed 20 Mbit/s from the computer or mobile device whilst on the move.
In the UK no date has been set for 2.5Ghz auction, yet alone a defined process, making it impossible for UK service providers to plot a next generation wireless service.

Each modules is pre-programmed and unique :D The 32-bit encryption creates more than four billion hop-codes with 15 user-defined control lines.
I bought my train tickets for Wolverhampton tomorrow, home to Knife crime.
