ex machina

so, it looks like bestbuy have left their wlans wide open:

"Well after sorting out my logs I noticed what looked to be like SQL queries and table headers in my logs ... things such as CUSTOMER_ROUTEID, BANKNAME, REGISTER_ID and things of that nature... luckily no where in that data did I find my own credit card. Non the less I decided to run to the store next to BestBuy while I left me PC on grabbing packets. Well yesterday I sorted through the data collected and this time I did indeed find a RAW clear text credit card number....not mine ... but definately a credit card number.

... I checked out a few of the other best buy stores for "beacon packets" and everyone I drove by was sending them I assume all BestBuy's are wlan enabled."

that popping sound you hear is the sound of pringles cans being opened.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
