I am not alone!!!


One of my pet subjects is swarms, in all their guises... and how they can be applied to computing problems. Well hopefully people will now NOT stop and stare at me anymore... More work is being done in this area... then I rave about swarms.

I have been told to blog more...

So hopefully this is the start of a new blogging frenzy...

I was chatting to friend of mine about stuff I have been thinking about, and adding to my every growing list of to do lists.

One of the things I talked about a long while back now is a utility I wrote to analyse files for their entropy... in an attempt to ID malware using file compressors, and it works pretty well.

I was contemplating another strategy using the frequency of patterns to build an ID for a particular binary, this would be useless on compressed executables but!!!!

It could possibly be used to ID binaries built with different compilers/linkers even! I will report back on the success or failure at some point in the future.

Then today, wow!!! is all I can say.

Finally I can have a full nights sleep!

They found it!!! This had me worried since, 1982!!!
