For purposes of this series I am assuming you are starting vi from a terminal emulator for the purposes of this post. Terminal in OS X, Konsole, Xterm, anything like that will work.
One of the my more annoying traits is that I get distracted by new and shiny things. Especially when it comes to technology and the skills it requires to do my job. I get my hands on some new piece of tech, learn just enough to get the job done/be dangerous, then get distracted and move on to something else. Sometimes that is just the nature of my job, but other times I could be leveraging what I learned into other areas to be more productive/better.
So at work we are providing a mirror to various software projects via FTP. We want to get a better analysis of what is happening with our FTP server so I installed awstats. Holy crap is it awesome!
The evil SLO has had the shit kicked out of them. Not revenge but Justice has been served.
O.k., URL Scan is a great tool. I personally think it is stupid that it is a separate download for IIS, but I am not the one releasing it so whatever. Here is my major confusion though.
On the left there is a link called "Images". That is where I post pictures. Let me know when links in blog posts are incorrect.

I have been messing with lock picking since this years Defcon and have gotten alright at it. Yesterday it saved the day for me. I had a used Minidock for my T40. It was locked and I could not find the keys that came with it. Out come my picks I got at Defcon and about 2 minutes later of playing with it and I am in. Bam! I feel like Napolean, I have lock picking skillz, now I need to work on my numchuck skillz.
So it is Halloween and that is awesome and all, but I am not in the mood this year for doing much for it. Nekkid time with Charlize Theron maybe. Anyway, I was just getting lunch and I see a dude walking up to the same taco stand I am at from a mile away, wearing a Star Trek uniform. He has the full on outfit, not unlike the picture above, but way worse because you can tell he spent a lot of money and time into it. Now, I am not making fun of the fans of the Star Trek, I have seen every episode of the original at least four times, one of my fondest memories I have is me and my dad watching Next Generation together. I like the series, I am a Sci-Fi fan. But I am not down with people into the cosplay. I do not know why it is, but when I see people do it, it makes me beat up on 'em. After I remind myself that it is not socially acceptable to destroy a member of the Federation, Captain Virgin has ordered with his friend and they are eating right next to me so I cannot help but hear the conversation that they are having. I think Nerd-boy's friend is as astounded as I am with his friend's outfit, because that is what the conversation is about. Apparently the uniform the guy is wearing is from the Star Trek movie "First Conact". As soon as I hear that I think to myself "Man, I really liked 'First Contact', it is good even if you are not a Trek fan. In fact, I think it is the second best of all time, right after 'Wrath of Khan'." Right after I think that I hear this from the guy who still lives in his parents' basement (*cough* trailer *cough*), "Yeah, First Contact is the second best movie in the whole franchise, right after Wrath of Khan." Sonofabitch! Proving again how in tune I am with the No-Getting-Laid community. Goddamnitalltohell, just sign me up for some AD&D 3.5 Edition rulebooks and I will pen & paper your ass to death.
The above is really not that awesome of a video, the sound is horrible. I just wanted to play with Youtube. I go there everyday, yet never add anything to it. Now I have. Eh.

Vegas for teh win. Vegas: 1, me: blegh
I still ache a bit and it has been more than 24 hours since I left. Yesterday was much worse, I could not function as a human being when I woke up, until about 3PM. Some things I am documenting for the next trip:
Also, knowing people who know people is key. I need to work on that, I have too many friends who work in the hotel industry to not take advantage.
UPDATE: I also added some pictures link
