If you do a quick google for "ASP.NET PCI DSS training", give the top-listed company a call (starts with J) and ask for Tom, I'd be glad to help....We do Java, and PHP-flavoured secure coding training too, focusing heavily on best practices, and can be tailored for on-site delivery too.
Don't forget to ask for Tom, and mention El Reg while you're at it and I'll bung you a 5% discount off public course prices.
Blatant plug over...you may get back to spluttering over your morning coffee now :-)
If you haven't already, go out and buy Charles Stross' Toast, and/or Accelerando, for some well-informed and thought-provoking ideas on where all this stuff is going. Throroughly enjoyable sci-fi written by a geek, for geeks. This message has been brought to you by the Charles Stross Marketing Board.
I'm in two minds, as (a) I'm lazy...but (b) I'm a tightarse. If I could be bothered, it really wouldn't be too hard to use Sky+ to record the shows I like from my standard Sky subscription, stream the lot to a DVD-recorder, then use a ripper to grab it all and spurt it into my favourite handheld.
...you could get a (not so old) 2nd-hand lappy or slimline PC box with the relevant video-outs and bung a TV-friendly OS on it (and get yourself a generic remote of some kind too I should have thought) ...Share a few folders over your network, perhaps run remote desktop, set up myth, and - ah okay, it's not particularly plug and play, but probably a more involved and pleasing method for a lot of El Reg readers :-)
I'm wracking my brains trying to think of any good films that have come out recently that warrant me spending money on hi-def.
I canceled my Amazon DVD Rental after about 3 months because I'd watched everything I wanted to see. Am I alone in my world-weary cynicism, or do other people also feel that there's bugger-all that's worth watching coming out of Hollywood (or heaven's above, UK cinematography)?
Foolish of me to hold my breath. Tonight I am going to promote (X)Ubuntu from its current position of "Saviour of Old Computer Hardware", to "Wine Gaming Platform Experiment on my Main PC".
Time to reach for Acronis and buckle up. Vista Ultimate 64, kindly shuffle over a bit, you're about to get dual-booted.
My H&B car stereo has USB and SD-RAM slots in it. Best £80 I ever spent. Something tells me that they mightn't have paid any licensing fees for the mp3 codecs though - they don't seem to make them any more.
That's neither here nor there though. Record companies can go stick their DRM-infested USB sticks up their A&Rs.
By the way, get your free, unshackled ambient dub and trip-hop electronica mp3s at http://www.universalconstructors.com :-)
...for MS to get El Reg to get an article up about the wonders of Silverlight
Talking of which, if you want some really good Silverlight training, google "JB International", give them a call, and ask for Tom ;-)
Counting the seconds till my shameless plug gets pulled...
