Looks like, despite all the bitching and moaning, Carnivore works the way the FBI said it does. There’s such a fundamental distrust of law enforcement in this country; the only way that the independent review of Carnivore would have mattered is if Perritt concluded that it violated basic tenets of security, in which case people would have trumpeted the finding as proof of their suspicions. The fact that the review found no major problems will go mostly unnoticed.

From Luke today comes news about a new O’Reilly book, this one on securing Windows NT and Win2K servers on the Internet. The first chapter is online; time to do some reading!

For those New Yorkers who don’t know, tomorrow night all the floats for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade get inflated on the roads surrounding the Museum of Natural History; from 6 PM to 11 PM, you can walk around and watch ‘em grow. I found out about this years ago, and try never to miss it — lots of kids, and you can see the floats without having to freeze your ass off at the godawful Parade.

I was wondering why Gwyneth Paltrow was on the last Saturday Night Live! (And since we’re on the subject, can anyone give me a good reason why Gwyneth and I aren’t dating?)

Cheney’s Wyoming “residence” has again been challenged, this time by three Texas residents. It turns out that the suit filed last week by a Florida resident was dismissed; the most recent suit was filed hours after that dismissal.

eBay took quite a hit today, although being one of the few profitable dot-com businesses, this may be more part of the general dot-com fear rather than realism.

From the CNN homepage today — buy more than $40 from Barnes & Noble (through the end of November 24th), get $10 off with coupon code ZZJ8KSW. (I mention this because I know I need to get cracking on the holiday book presents, so I assume others do too!)


Gwyneth? Because, Jason, she’s mine, all mine! (Nah, I prefer brunettes … the field is clear my friend. From my point of view anyway.)

The crumbler? The most disturbing thing in the article was the assertion that the true bread-squeezer may still be on the loose. (I’m sure that Malcolm Gladwell is on the case.)

Alas, it appears that Chris Heinz, heir to the ketchup fortune, has beaten me to the punch… whimper.
