Visual Authentication?

Writing about web page http://labs.mininova.org/passclicks/

This is a clever method for authentication – instead of getting a user to remember a password, it gets the user to remember 'clicks' on a photograph.

I doubt it would prove to be very secure (as the overlay on the site seems to suggest) but its definitely a novel idea…

Ill stick to passwords for now I think.

Resnet Problems Again?

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/its/facilities/studentcomputing/

When exactly are they going to fix the issues with ResNet?

To reduce the risk of a re–occurrence of Internet connectivity problems the ResNet firewall will be power cycled twice daily at approximately 07:30 hours and 19:30 hours from Friday 28th April.

I call bullshit on this. Fix the underlying problems and there is no need to power cycle the damn firewalls… I repeat – where is the redundancy? ITS in case you read this blog, redundancy:

Duplication or repetition of elements in electronic equipment to provide alternative functional channels in case of failure.

There you go.

Replacement hardware will be delivered in the morning and should it become clear that this upgrade has been unsuccessful the new hardware will be installed. (regarding the upgrade of the "code" in the firewall)

Unbelievable
