Article Roundup

The US is unprepared for a major attack on the Internet infrastructure.

A good tutorial on Securing Apache with mod_security.

Tim O'Reilly comments on recent high-profile switches from Mac to Ubuntu.

Captchas are slowly but surely falling prey to computers.

The shock of using IE when you are used to Firefox.

Randsinrepose brings us A Nerd in a Cave. Interesting commentary on Geek work habits. Those of us who are knowledge workers can relate to this:

Once I've successfully traversed my morning routine and have entered The Zone, I am OFF LIMITS. I mean it. Intruding into The Cave and disrupting The Zone is no different than standing up in the middle of the first ever showing of The Empire Strikes Back, jumping up and down, and yelling, "DARTH VADER IS LUKE'S FATHER! DARTH VADER IS LUKE'S FATHER!" Not only are you ruining the mood, you're killing a major creative work.
