I live by the coast. I think 3-D S.F. Bay Area Fog Forecast is neat.

Creating our First Podcast

07/01/05 | by Clarise | Categories: In real life
It took us some time to publish our first podcasts. We recorded it live at the Uptown Cafe in San Carlos, CA and there was a lot of background noise. :lalala: So, we had to do a lot of editing to minimize that authentic cafe noise using Audacity.

Joseph, in his blog, Podcast Open Source Conversations mentions what we did to publish it. So, I won't repeat it here ... &#59;D

I created the elements for the Podcast image, making sure that it uses our colors ...

Joseph chose the elements and put them together.

I thought the final design turned out well.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy our podcasts.

Security of Personal Information

06/27/05 | by Clarise | Categories: On the web

Reading Computerworld this morning, the common theme of two headlines struck me most …

UConn server breached; data on 72,000 people exposed

Kaiser Permanente Fined $200k for Patient Data Breach

A few weeks back, Citigroup lost computer tapes that had customer data including Social Security numbers.

According to the February 1, 2005 report published by the Federal Trade Commission, National and State Trends in Fraud and Identity Theft January - December 2004, “Between January and December 2004, Consumer Sentinel, the complaint database developed and maintained by the FTC, received over 635,000 consumer fraud and identity theft complaints. Consumers reported losses from fraud of more than $547 million.”

Are there stricter government policies governing how banks, creditors, insurance companies and other groups, store and transport information?


Longest Day of the Year

06/21/05 | by Clarise | Categories: General Thoughts

Today, June 21, if I am not mistaken is summer solstice in the USA. For people living in the Northern Hemisphere, it is the longest day, i.e., most daylight hours. Most daylight hours, more work can be done &#59;D

If one of my younger nieces or nephews asks what the astronomical term Summer Solstice actually mean, I can point them to the Summer Solstice Wikipedia Entry and yes, maybe show them the cool picture below ....
