recovery and response is a broad topic, and there are many opinions on the proper methods to use and actions to take once an intrusion has been discovered. Just as the debate rages on regarding vi versus emacs, Linux versus Windows, and BSD versus everything else, there is much debate in the computer forensics crowd on the clean shutdown versus pull the plug argument. Whole books have been written on recovering from and responding to incidents. There are many things to consider when doing so, and the procedures you should use are far from well defined.
With this in mind, this chapter is not meant to be a guide on what to do when you first discover an incident, but it does show you how to perform tasks that you might decide to undertake in the event of a successful intrusion. By reading this chapter, you will learn how to properly create a filesystem image to use for forensic investigation of an incident, methods for verifying that files on your system havent been tampered with, and some ideas on how to quickly track down the owner of an IP address.
Some people have called the Theology of the Body a “revolution.” George Weigel, author of Witness to Hope, a biography of Pope John Paul II, claims that the Theology of the Body is a “theological time bomb waiting to go off.” In this chapter, I will outline the basic method the pope uses in his Theology of the Body. Then I will introduce the four original experiences Pope John Paul II develops. You are probably already familiar with Original Sin, but you may not have heard of the other three original experiences. These three other original experiences constitute part of the “theological time bomb.” In chapter two we will discover the other parts of the “time bomb” when we examine the qualities of the human body. Now let’s look at how the pope develops his Theology of the Body and follow his method.
The Bible and Human Experience
In the Theology of the Body, the pope makes extensive use of the Bible and human experience. First, he uses the Bible, which is the word of God. God actually speaks to us in many ways. Above all, he speaks through his Son, Jesus Christ. The four Gospels tell us about Jesus’ life. In addition—and this is important—they make Christ present to us now, in the twenty-first century.
Something we were withholding made us weak, until we found out that it was ourselves.
It is no longer surprising news that rational “book smart” intelligence is not enough to live successfully. Our hearts as well as our brains are critical. In fact, it is EQ (emotional intelligence) rather than IQ that has become the recent center of attention for those wishing to be more effective in their work and life.56
Daniel Goleman popularized the concept of emotional intelligence (EQ) in his best-selling book.25 According to Goleman,
emotional intelligence refers to the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well in ourselves and in our relationships. It describes abilities distinct from, but complementary to, academic intelligence, the purely cognitive capacities measured by IQ.26
Research suggests that EQ is every bit as important as IQ (intelligence quotient) for determining our effectiveness. It can help us to be more perceptive of hidden opportunities and interpersonal challenges. EQ can allow our emotions to become sources of useful information and even wisdom, as opposed to being distracting intrusions, and thereby can significantly increase our capacity for success. And it can help us be more resilient in the face of life pressures. For example, research has suggested that a higher EQ can help us to have less severe emotional reactions and to respond more constructively to the threat of possibly losing our jobs in the face of downsizing or corporate restructuring.2757
If youre looking for the best place to go for at-a-glance
information about the current state of your PCs maintenance and
Internet security, open the Action Center (it was called the Security Center in
Windows Vista). To open it, click the tiny or on your system tray.
Here, all in one place, are all the security and maintenance
messages that Windows wants you to see. Be grateful; they
used to pop up as individual nag balloons on the
system tray all day. Now they accumulate here.
Color coding lets you know what steps Windows thinks you should
take. Messages marked with a red vertical bar are
things you should fix right now, like not having a virus program
installed. Items with a yellow bar are less urgent; theyre
maintenance recommendations, for example.
You can read the full scoop on the Action Center on Action Center. For now, its enough to remember
that heres the place to check to see how your Windows Updates and PC
backups are doing.
MSBuild Sidekick simplifies the task of maintaining a solid build process, providing easy access to each of the build’s sections and properties. Its support for custom tasks and multiple project files guarantees it can handle even the most complex builds.
Release managers will definitely benefit from the increased access it offers to their
MSBuild scripts, allowing them to tweak the scripts at will without going through infinite lines of XML code.

12.6 Shortening the Development Cycle with CruiseControl.NET
Integration can be a very difficult portion of a project. Waterfall-style projects leave integration until after the majority of development is done, sometimes resulting in horrifically long integration phases. Integration can be a very complex process, and it can point out problems causing ripples all the way back to the system’s design.
Martin Fowler, in his seminal article “Continuous Integration” (see the site http:// www.martinfowler.com/articles/continuousIntegration.html), writes about his experience as a summer intern at an electronics company where a large project had been underway for years. Fowler’s guide told him the integration phase had been going on for several months, and that “nobody really knew how long it would take to finish integrating.”
