wannabe nerd's wannabe nerd blog

i'm really interested in how technology fails people, and how people fail technology.

so infosec, user experience, mangled hardware and software, and the intersection of humans and computers in general.

i also like making dumb jokes.

Criminal Minds S03E09: A Hacker is searching for files and then later doing a Hacker battle.
FAIL-Quote from the  scene:
"Wow!…. This system is insane…Its completely linux based…..open source programming…….you don’t see this in government systems in outside of like Switzerland!"
The code on the left side is from an IBM guy, using linux as a screensaver with qemu inside windows. http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/jp/linux/library/l-scrnsave/#ibm-pcon  Scroll down to “QEMU” and you see the code.
The code on the right is some VB code for ejecting a removable media. I could not find a source for the code. A few seconds later you see this kind of VB code:

You can watch the complete scene at youtube.
