Security Inside Out #USGRockEagle13

Eddie Carter and Orrin Char, Oracle Identity management and security and access management. Eddie wore a UGA shirt. Guy in front of me made fun of him obviously not wanting to sell to Georgia Tech. Turns out he’s from  Kennesaw. The GT-UGA rivalry knows no bounds. Love it! Handout: Database firewall more auditing and ACLs… Continue reading Security Inside Out #USGRockEagle13

Conservatory A Perspective

Conservatory A perspective Originally uploaded by Ezra F Today is a Baha’i holy day. So I took the day off from work. Rather than sleep in throw off my sleep schedule, I ventured over to the State Botanical Garden of Georgia during the morning wonder light.

Relative Truth

Found an interesting comment on an article the state of Georgia observing the Confederate Memorial Day…. The truth of history means very little to those who are dead set against learning anything from it. No matter what the history books used in our public school system say, most will never believe anything other than their… Continue reading Relative Truth

Resolutions For 2009

See Reading for last and this years’… Continue reading Resolutions For 2009

Insect-ival

Got some pictures down at the botanical garden today. Reviewed a few and posted them over at Freelove Photography (tagged Insect-ival). I’ll get everything on Flickr eventually. Insect-ival was cute. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but 400+ screaming kids wasn’t it. The best part was the butterfly release where the few stragglers who could… Continue reading Insect-ival

Public Performance and Universities

Since restaurants get sued for not paying royalties for public performances of copyrighted music, it seems likely playing a song at an athletic event is a public performance. I wonder how much the UGA Athletics or just UGA pays ASCAP for the ability to do this? Certainly, its not academic use. 🙂 Youuuuuuu – Red… Continue reading Public Performance and Universities
