In Wired.

Wow, it looks like I haven’t touched my site for a while, based on the dates on here. But, in reality, I’ve just been updating my cphack page.

And it looks like I’m insulting Symantec and McAfee, but that’s my fault — those words did come out of my mouth. I like these companies, for the most part. Peter Norton’s snazzy duds suck me in every time.

Anyhow, it’s just another piece where I insult somebody’s product and say how Linux rules. Yup, I’m a opportunist lamer. :)
