Sharpening The ACKs?

I heard a famous quote from Lincoln a while ago and it basically summaries the point of this blog.

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.

I hope to use this a means to document my various attempts to master IT security. This is going to be my personal resource to reference for things I find noteworthy on the net or things I have tried that are worth documenting or doing again. The first few posts I plan on doing are about my lab setup at home. It is shaping up to be pretty spiffy. From there I plan on posting something at least once a week or so to justify the blog's existence and keep me motivated. We'll see where this goes.

For those of you that don't know why I spelled ax wrong, feel free to bone up on TCP/IP.
