Is by Greg Bear. I recommend all of you go to your nearest bookshop and obtain said book. It's more about social issues than evolution or mutation. Excellent use of the science as detective genre. Bear is my $DEITY, except when Mr Banks pops out another one. Then he is my $DEITY.

Working on lukemftp has all but stopped (as predicted).

Working on auDA stuff. Make a submission if you are interested in Australian DNS futures.

Posted a little collection of XFree86 exploits (no new ones, just collecting knowledge together) to the devel list for testing.

If you use any form of XFree86

Upgrade to 4.0.3 (due soon) as soon as you can. For those of you in the dark ages, 3.3.7 will be out shortly as well.

If you can't go to 4.0.3 for the only valid reason (4.0.x doesn't support your card), go to 3.3.7. All known serious security flaws are fixed for the first time in this new stability release.
