Today was less of a fire drill than yesterday, though I did spend all morning holed up in a wiring closet gathering Sniffer traces of traffic from the schools. I found more compromised PCs at Hartford High, and a little nest of 'em at Annie Fisher. The desktop guys made it out to HPHS and brought back word of the worm's identity: W32/SdBot.worm.gen. I'll probably do more surveillance Monday to gage just how far this has spread among the several thousand unprotected PCs out in the schools.

That being said, I have the following words for the thought-to-be Russian who laid down the code of the original SdBot, and all of the people who have created the four thousand plus variants:


Fuck you, the horse you rode in on, and your little dog Toto too.

Get a life. Get a hobby. Get a cause that does some fucking good. Howzabout volunteering to code systems for charities. All of them need IT 'cause all of them have to report to their funders on a bloody Byzantine array of data points. Don't you think that helping a Methadone clinic or an AIDS hospice keep its funding (or maybe, even help someone) is worth bragging rights?

Or maybe there's only about three worthwhile virus and worm coders out there and the rest of you are a bunch of me too pussies who make minor tweaks to someone else's work, but couldn't code your way out of a fucking paper bag. Hang up your spurs people, they're made of tin anyway.

Say, it suddenly occurs to me - want to take your frustrations out on a wall? LOL

I'm being recruited to help with carpentry at my brother's house tomorrow, so I'll have the opportunity to beat things with a hammer. :-)

*grin* This is a good thing. Enjoy!

Man, it is damn scary what termites can do to a house. A couple of section of the wall we took down didn't need much pursuading.

Ohhhh -- *that* kind of carpentry. Damn shame -- was it an important/load-bearing wall?

Yea, it was one of the exterior walls of the kitchen, with the master bedroom above it. Kinda made you wonder "what's holding this up?"

We figure that the termites found a point of entry in the East end of the wall, part of which was in contact with the ground. So, the end of the afternoon was forming up and pouring a new concrete sill. Ok, pour is probably the wrong word — glopping is probably a better word when you'r mixing concrete in a wheel barrow and delivering it with a flat shovel!

We learned an important lesson — don't put your jacks and temporary truss too close to the wall you're taking out: you'll get in your own way when you try to put the new header back in!
