Mobile gaming is projected to become one of the fastest growing sectors in the IT industry. In this article, Michael Yuan looks at this exciting new market's characteristics and the opportunities for Java developers. The Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) is the dominant technology platform for the new generations of multiplayer mobile games. In the second half of this article, Michael surveys the latest game-related innovations and APIs in the J2ME world.
The flaw is in a component of the operating system that allows other computers to request the Windows system perform an action or service. The component, known as the remote procedure call (RPC) process, facilitates such activities such as sharing files and allowing others to use the computer's printer.By sending too much data to the RPC process, an attacker can cause the system to grant full access to the system.
Top 75 Security Tools
In May of 2003, I conducted a survey of Nmap users from the nmap-hackers mailing list to determine their favorite security tools. Each respondent could list up to 8. This was a followup to the highly successful June 2000 Top 50 list. An astounding 1854 people responded in '03, and their recommendations were so impressive that I have expanded the list to 75 tools! Anyone in the security field would be well advised to go over the list and investigate tools they are unfamiliar with. I discovered several powerful new tools this way. I also plan to point newbies to this page whenever they write me saying "I do not know where to start".

Others, however, are alchemy in action, the transformation of humble spirits into a nectar not unfit for the gods. Here's how to make those drinks (and some classic variations).

Every man should know how to make at least one drink from a foreign country, preferably one taught to him by a local female with whom he has had a complicated, unresolved, and quite possibly dangerous dalliance.

Fink is a debian-esque distribution of several open source packages ported to OS X. Everything from apt-get to XFree86 is included. If you were a little disapointed at the tools included in Apple's developer package then Fink is for you. Thanks to Jared from the g33ks list for the link.

(The map is big, so use the scroll bars to get around.) When you successfully select two stations, the program will calculate the fastest route between those stations.
