Blog relocated again

Just a quick update, to make sure everyone knows. I’ve moved my blog from MSInfluentials to WordPress.com. Please update your aggregators/bookmarks/favorites to http://stvrly.wordpress.com. I’ve posted the reasoning for my move, as well as a description of my personal foray into the cloud, over there.

Comments, administrivia, and the future of the “infosec professional”

Back when the spam was spiraling out of control, I configured my blog to close comments after 90 days. I’ve removed the limitation now, for two reasons: the spam is under control, and I wanted to reply to a comment made to my post on IPsec/IPv6 direct connect. On 13 August, jcorey asked about how…

Tweet!

The other day an office mate asked, "Do you twitter?" Sorting through the various snarky remarks that immediately popped to mind, I replied that I didn’t think anyone would find my routine bits all that interesting. He suggested otherwise: that it would be a convenient place to record quick ideas. So I am now indeed…

Playing around with my blog

In the right-hand column I’ve added a new section with four interesting bits of info for you: A ClustrMap, that shows the locations around the world where people read my blog from. I registered the thing back in December 2006, but just figured out how to add it to the blog software a few days…

My blog is not a forum for advertisements

It’s bad enough that the blasted spammers pollute the value of blogs and open forums by hijacking them with their nefarious comments for questionable pharmaceuticals claiming to extend particular body parts.

This is a test…this is only a test.

Ah, it’s a wonderful Saturday afternoon here in Singapore. I just finished up some customer meetings in Bangkok and Manila this week, and TechEd Asia starts next week in Kuala Lumpur. So I’m hanging out Singapore for the weekend, spending some time with friends and relaxing between events. Thought I’d give the new Windows Live…

F*#$!@g spam!

Yeah, it’s been a while since I’ve written a post, and I have some ideas I’ll get to once the prep work for TechEd this year settles down a bit. But look — why in the world do the freaking spammers have to start targetting blogs now? I keep my comments open and unmoderated because…

www.steveriley.ms is down

That web site runs on WinISP, an experimental ISP hosted for Microsoft employees to use for testing. WinISP is having problems of late, as many of you have written to me in emails. I’m looking for a new home for my PowerPoints and recordings; once I find it, I’ll post a note here in the…

There you’ll find PPTs for most of the sessions I’ve delivered in the past couple years. If you need something you can’t find, just let me…
