Swamped

Icon 3 Comments
I have been completely swamped at work the past couple weeks. I'm even at home right now reading over user manuals in preperation for a software demo in the morning. I've been put on a tiger team to evaluate and recommend a solid data collection and analysis tool for my organization as well as configure and demonstrate a real time collaborative environment. Both of these projects require me to work from a computer with no internet access so I haven't had much time to keep up with things on the ole' interweb.

I've learned that no matter how cool it can be, java is ALWAYS a pain in the ass no matter what. Even when 99% of stuff works, there's always that one applet that won't load no matter what you do. It's either the wrong JRE, some sort of connectivity issue, or something unknown to even the developers. The bottom line, Java is cool, but damn does it suck sometimes. I'm not even talking about the language, just what some companies have created with it.

Hopefully next week things are a little less eventful. It'll be nice to have a slow week before things pick back up again. I was informed last week that I'll be traveling to Atlanta in late October to a conference, so I need to book tickets and get all the pre-arrangements for that put in motion.

no, tiger team is a military term for a 'point team', its usually security related, but not necesarily. blame the military dudes we work with for calling it that :P

I knew I was a military term, I've always heard it referenced as a group of friendlies penetrating firendly installations to test the security.

When applying it to computers, hacking/ pentesting
