Tracy's HackMoor Campaign 2015/12/01

Due to the absence of one Player (the one who won't eat plants on a pizza, including mushrooms even though we keep explaining they are not plants, let's not mention the bread it is baked on is made from wheat flour), we had a combination pizza without pepperoni (because we DID have the Player who won't eat pepperoni).

Games are on Tuesdays sometime around 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

We had a new walk-in Player and we spent the evening rolling his Character up.

C10K - Hook, Line, and...

This chapter sees them bait the hook in the style of "The Sting." It also shows us the moral code used by protagonists in Spider Robinson's Callahan series.

There are some neat interactions and I laughed out loud three times while reading (much to the chagrin of someone sleeping beside me).

A book that makes me laugh is worth it's weight in gold.

Shiny!

This time my group had an large meat-lover's pizza with the pepperoni out and that meat they use for philly-cheesesteak in.

C9K - Carping the Diem

This chapter took us a little further into things; just a little. It was so awesome to see...

C8K The Prose and Cons of Rape Fiction

This story jumps off with rape, but the consensual kind and later mentions it again in the non-consensual way. 

There is more description of the House layout and why it's the best whorehouse ever built. Truly a house of pulchritude. 

This first chapter is the setup. Can the next fulfil expectations? My cup is ready.

C8A: Professor Who?

I finally willed myself to crack Callahan's Lady open again after that disturbing 'The Paranoid' story.

The first chapter was more to my liking and what I was used to from the first story in the book.

I enjoyed Sherri's explanation of her 'scene' with the Japanese businessmen, such polite rapists!

This time my group had an extra-large sausage pizza. I had originally ordered a large but it turns out one of my sons was working the pizza parlor that night, so the mystery is assumed solved.

A Picture is worth a thousand vulnerabilities...

Recently I went into a business that was moving. They had various posters and brochures touting all the advantages of this move to a new building. The building was apparently brand new, still under construction and to provide customers with some insight the business posted the new buildings floor plan. It showed the new layout of the business as well as entrances, bathrooms, staff rooms, a security room, the server room, etc. My focus immediately went to the security room, server room and other secure rooms.

Security FAQ

I received some questions about cybersecurity and made up a mini-faq to answer them.

What is Phishing?

Phishing is someone posing as a legitimate company/person to gain sensitive information from a user for malicious purposes. (Think of when you fish with fake bait, the fish thinks it’s real so it bites.)

When I join a website what do they do with my personal information?

Every company is different, when on their website, look for their ‘Privacy policy’ and it will indicate exactly what they are doing with your information.

A Security Primer

Physical Security

This includes things like not having papers on desk after you leave work, visible passwords or other confidential information.

Lock your computer when you leave, even for a few minutes, especially if there is someone else in your office . Privacy screens can be helpful for this.
