  • Still Alive

    Posted on October 1, 2012 by Lee Whitfield in News.

    It has been almost a year since we moved to Texas. Life is certainly a lot busier than it used to be. In the last year I have managed to record only one episode of Forensic 4cast and do a live show. Also we had another baby, which took (and continues to take) a lot […]

  • The Unofficial Forensic 4cast Awards

    Posted on May 29, 2012 by Lee Whitfield in News.

    Mark your calendars! The Unofficial Forensic 4cast Awards are set for June 17 2012. Unlike the official awards, which will take place at the SANS Forensic Summit in Austin, these awards are going to be tongue-in-cheek and will be poking fun at deserving people in the field.

  • Dr Evil Works at the RIAA

    Posted on May 24, 2012 by Lee Whitfield in News.

    72 trillion dollars. That is the amount of money for which the RIAA is suing Limewire. What does 72 trillion looks like if you take the American definition of a trillion? 72,000,000,000,000 According to some sources this is more money than exists in the entire world.

  • Strange Artifacts – Wubi

    Posted on April 7, 2012 by Lee Whitfield in Technical Articles.

    I don’t speak French. I learned it at school and don’t use it much but, if it was a pinch, I could probably remember enough to get by. The same goes for using linux. I know a lot of the basic commands and how to set things up so that it is usable, but I’m […]

  • Digital Forensic Examiner of the Year

    Posted on April 3, 2012 by Lee Whitfield in News.

    I’ve been asked to explain why, specifically, people chose to nominate the three forensicators below. I have posted some of the comments made by those who nominated them. Personally I’m torn. All three are fully deserving of the award this year (yes, even Cindy). Kristinn Gudjonsson “Kristinn is long overdue for some public recognition for […]
