# TheNewMusic

I bought five albums today ...

Billy Talent - Billy Talent
311 - Evolver
Dashboard Confessional - A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar
John Mayer - Heavier Things
Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head

I almost bought the new A Perfect Circle album until I saw the "This Disc is Copy Protected" warning on it. Forget about that -- if I can't copy my own CD it's useless to me.

I'll let you know how the rest are on the media blog.

# Breach!

So for my security class I have to write about a system attack that happened within the last two years. I thought about writing about DVD/DeCSS but that happened more than two years ago. Same with the Sklyarov/Adobe thing ... so I'm looking for ideas. The word "system" is pretty loose as well -- the example the prof gave in class was the 9/11 attacks.

# Changing Gears

It always takes a week or two to completely switch gears between work and school. Work is great because it's regular -- you know you'll have nights and weekends off. School is great because you don't have to show up on Friday until 2:30 -- but you might be there until midnight. ACK. Hopefully not much this semester ...

On a side note, during my work term evaluation my boss reminded me of something I sometimes take for granted: I get paid to do something I love to do ... and that's fortunate. Do what you love, you'll be happier in the long run.
