Straight, No Chaser

It's possible I'll change my mind, but at least for now, Straight, No Chaser is the ultimate. Current edition: on 5 by Monk by 5, SACD.

Thelonious Monk rewired me long ago.

I'm alive

The news:

The University of New Orleans is now designated as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Research (CAE-R). We got the news today (April 21).

We have the Scalpel file carving application carving 30 file types at line speed w/ in-place file carving... New release of Scalpel on the way, really. Truly.

I'll be in Montreal at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal for sabbatical this summer and fall (2009).

The reverse engineering class I've been teaching during Spring 2009 at the University of New Orleans has silenced me. Huge amounts of class prep, but a very nice experience. DOS boot sector virus disassemblies, anyone?

French Quarter Festival was super. The Renard Poche band blew my mind. And Bonerama hardly sucks.

Jazz Fest time. Brass pass in hand.

DFRWS / USENIX Security in Montreal during my sabbatical. I'll be teaching at two day tutorial on (teaching) reverse engineering at USENIX Security.

Wear purple.
