Leo and Steve have joked about renaming the SN podcast to "We are all doomed" or something Similar. How about "Everything is broken". There is already a catchy Dylan song that could be used as a theme.
I like the blues versions of the song best. If you are musically inclined you should be able to replace all the Dylan broken items with broken IT/Security ones, but you would probably have to make the song a lot longer. :giggle:


What could possibly go wrong?

that would get around the 3 digit dilema. Start a whole new podcast. If they are sweet on the name Security Now again?

Simple enough, when you reach 999 you have the next be A00, and count up on hex to FFF. When that is done easy enough to have the next be 0001, which will be both sequential, and also not confused with 3 digit numbers.

Why stop at base 16? That'll only get you to FFF, then an ultimate FFFF, and the one after FFF would be the first four-digit episode, 0000, anyway. Still, FFF is 4095 in decimal and would suffice for the foreseeable future.

But I talked about that months ago. I proposed some things back then. Remember that the final line in my linked post is a joke (regarding octal and lower bases)!
