Tech News Hiatus
« on: December 06, 2009, 07:38:40 PM »
Hi all,

This week marks the start of the Tech News Hiatus as I leave for the USA in two days and I'm afraid I just don't have the time (I've also had food poisoning for the past few days, so my preparation efforts have been hampered).

Mouse Man has asked me to inform you all that you will need to "seek your tech news fix elsewhere" for the coming few weeks, but hopefully we will be up and running again by the weekend of the 9th and 10th of January.

Enjoy the holidays everyone!!

Ehtyar.

Hehe, thanks guys.

If it helps any, I was totally (blissfully?) unaware of Google DNS until April mentioned it in passing on the IRC channel. How could I possibly help all you guys stay informed when I'm not even remotely so myself?

Interested readers could and should just go over your previous posts and go to the sources, then add the sites' feeds to their feed reader.

That way they won't miss as as much, at the price of having to digest much more than before.

People will miss the intelligent filtering for notably that you have provided...

Thanks House Man.

My suggestions would be:
ArsTechnica (of course)
DarkReading
SANS ISC
The Register
H-Online
and of course, for the security minded among us, just about anything from SecLists.

Enjoy the holidays guys!!
