Link Logger can use Yahoo to send alert emails. Of course you need a Yahoo email account and configure Link Logger as shown during our testing. Note the use of port 587.

Linksys WRV200 - Link Logger and partial logging routers 
Thursday, May 22, 2008, 02:38 AM - Link Logger From the Inside
I am often asked if Link Logger supports the Linksys WRV200G which always poses a dilemma for me as currently Link Logger doesn't support the WRV200G. The reason is the WRV200G doesn't have complete logging, as it only logs outbound traffic and not inbound traffic (if a port is forwarded it logs it). So for example scans against your WAN IP are not logged by the WRV200G.

Now the sad reality is the WRV200G has more complete logging then just about any other newer Linksys product. Fortunately you can run DD-WRT, Tomato etc with a number of Linksys products (but not currently the WRV200G) and they support syslog and Link Logger, but otherwise for the most part Linksys has drop traffic logging in their newer products.

So the question remains do I support a router with partial logging or not, what do you think??

Wow Blade Runner in HD DVD 
Tuesday, January 8, 2008, 01:54 AM - Cool Things, Places and Events
Today was a good day as Amazon delivered my Blade Runner (Five-Disc Ultimate Collector's Edition) [HD DVD] (2007) today as a late Christmas present. Blade Runner is my all time favorite movie and to be able to see the original North American release (yes I like the narration as it gives it an old Bogart feel) in HD using my Xbox 360 Elite and the HD player was simply WOW!! I own the VHS original, the DVD director's cut, but when I saw this, I had to get it as I've been waiting a long time for a DVD version of the original film and to get it now in HD is exactly what I would have asked for. I'll be watching it again tomorrow night, the only question is what version but I'm thinking the Workprint version, and then the next night the International version and so on. This is going to be a great week of movie watching.

If your a Blade Runner fan like me then perhaps next time your in Seattle you should check out the original Flying Spinner and other movie props at Experience Music Project / Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame in Seattle. Experience music is simply amazing, but I was hugely surprised at how good the Science Fiction Museum was. Toss in the Museum of Flight and the Seattle Underground and Seattle becomes a very cool place to visit. So I will be going mid April for the MVP Summit Conference at Microsoft, but I'll be visiting some of my favorite museums again as well.

My First Webcast 
Wednesday, December 19, 2007, 11:37 PM - Security Pings
On November 20th I did my first webcast as part of the Microsoft Ignite Your Code Webcast series (ya I know that is a suckie picture of me, just there are not many photos of me in existence) . I did the presentation on Windows Security Essentials . You can download my demo code from here

The Demo Code includes examples on how to code DACLs/SACLs, Impersonation, Implicit/Declarative Code Security, Code Access Security and Asymmetric/Symmetric encryption.

The webcast includes an introduction into how Windows implements security and then how to include security into your code. I hope you enjoy and learn something helpful.
