The big Hiatus
By Bri Hatch.

Summary: Bri take some time off writing about SSH ... to write about SSH.

Several folks have written in the past few weeks wondering where I've gone. Here I started a nice SSH thread about SSH 'Bouncing', and seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth. Some reader's questions included

  • "Hey, Where'd you go? Did you lose your Internet connection?"
  • "Lemme guess, your dog ate your articles?"
  • "Did you go off and get a job with Microsoft or something?"
  • "Why the huge break in articles - don't tell me you had another kid!"

Well, truth be told I was asked by SecurityFocus to write some articles on one of my favourite topics, SSH. For the last month and a half I have been writing, just not here -- I simply don't have the time to do both. Writing for SecurityFocus does have some advantages, such as

  • Folks to remind me to get my butt in gear and write.
  • An editor who fixes my typos before I publish them.
  • It pays...

That last one is really the biggest one, to be honest. All that baby food is expensive! And babysitting ain't cheap either. Man, we need to have our relatives closer, and I never thought I'd say that.

Anyway, just wanted to let'cha all know that I'm alive and well.

If you want to read the SSH articles at SecurityFocus, here are the links thus far:

I'll be writing on this topic for SecurityFocus for a while, so this list will be rather quiet until I'm done there.

Also, if you're interested, I'll be participating in a Live Chat at http://www.linuxsecurity.com on December 1st at 4pm EST as they launch the new version of their website -- I've seen a preview, and it's quite cool. For more information, go to http://www.linuxsecurity.com/
