Fluffy links – Monday October 1st 2007

Annie’s got another blog. This one is on moviemaking.

Joe took comprehensive notes (as usual 🙂 ) at the latest training session from the Irish Venture Capital Association on how to raise VC money. Well worth a read.

So yeah, it seems if you have an eircom Netopia wireless modem, the password or “WEP key” can be found out in seconds. 150,000 customers affected?

    Hi 73man, um, comments on my blog are working for me when not signed in. Did you have lots of links in it about performance and girth enhancing drugs?

    Regarding the: eircom Netopia wireless modem.

    This is good. Wireless should be freely open and available.

    And if your wireless signal enters my building then I should damn well be allowed to use it. (and if not, then you’ll find that MY wireless jammers are more powerful than your wireless transmitters)

    Penn & Teller’s Bullshit can be a fantastic show, really opens your eyes to some stuff. PETA episode is legendary.

Some episodes are really, really weak and/or obvious (eg bottled water, feng shui, alien abductions), but episodes like PETA and Profanity are worth their weight in gold.
