Photo ressources;

In 2011 I bought myself a DSLR camera and during this process I did a lot of research, I found the links below very helpful

CameraLabs

http://www.cameralabs.com/
A great and easy to understand site with tons of reviews, tips and tricks and other information

DigitalRev

http://www.youtube.com/user/DigitalRevCom
This is a cool YouTube channel for people interested in Cameras.  Lots of reviews, tips and geeky/funny stuff in general.  Even if you are not all that into cameras then this is worth a visit.


Security Links;

A bunch of links to various security related sites and services

HAK5

http://www.hak5.org/
Hak5 is mostly a monthly webcast about security and hacking, it is perhaps tending to be a bit on the ‘black hat’ side – but this offers great insight into the ‘enemy’ and is thus very interesting.  It is a geeky show with tons of tips, tricks and reviews.  The quality has lowered slightly after the staff has been reduced, but it is still worth a visit if you are interested in ‘the dark side’ 🙂

Secunia

http://secunia.com/
Secunia offers among other things a security scanner for your pc that will evaluate the software on your pc (version and vulnerability wise).  Other than that it is one of the more famous security companies so they are likely to have other goodies or news lying around.

Threat Expert

http://www.threatexpert.com/
This is a cool service where you can upload software for analysis, you will get a report that show what the software does upon execution (what files are installed, which registry keys are modified etc. and a general thread assessment) – it is very useful if you suspect mischief from some software you download or find installed on your pc.

Virus Total

http://www.virustotal.com/
This is an EXCELLENT site, you upload an executable or other file and it is analyzed with numerous antivirus scanners (20-30 different scanners).  Thus if you are in doubt if a file is infected upload it here and get a ‘second opinion’.  They also offer emailing service (you can email files instead of uploading) and a right-click option for windows (so you can right-click any file and upload it without having to visit a web-site).

 


Podcasts I listen to;

I recently bought an Ipod Touch 16gb, now this is a cool device it seem really well thought out and the finish just blows you away, the only thing I’m not that impressed with is that I’m forced to use ITunes to manage it, it would have been great with just pure USB access, but other than the ITunes ‘infection’ its really cool.  I added an FM transmitter for car usage, so now I can combine the commuter trip with e-learning (or just plain podcasting).

http://www.twit.tv/sn – Security Now
Security Now is a weekly approx 1 hour security briefing with focus on new technology and current issues in the security world.  This show is fine both for persons with just a basic interest in security as well as the security professional.

http://itradio.com.au/security/ – Risky Business
Risky Business is like Security Now a security podcast, the focus on this show is however more on the commercial/business side.  This podcast is likely more interesting for the IT Security Pro than the home user.

http://www.twit.tv – Various
On Twit you will find numerous interesting shows staring Leo Laporte, along these I’d mention “Windows Weekly” and “Security Now” as definitely worth a listen.  The site’s focus in mainly on end users and not limited to IT news, there is also shows on cooking and parenting.

Quite a few additional Security Podcasts can be found here;

Art;

Http://www.sinus-art.com  –  Sinus-Art
I would like to promote a small art gallery in Germany, I have bought a few paintings from this place and they are great.  Paul Sinus can really do something with colors, its really fascinating and at a fair price even.
