  • How F-Response Saved Christmas

    Those who know me will attest to the fact that I love F-Response but today it really came to the rescue. I’m doing an imaging job in the Dallas area. The client wants me to image four servers, three of which are business critical and can’t be out of use between 6am and 7pm. So, […]

  • Gadget Show Appearance

With Football (soccer) season just around the corner I have been bombarded with requests to join many different fantasy football leagues. While I […]

The picture below is taken from a video in which Martin attempts to perform a hex dump of a Nokia phone using Micro Systemation’s modified Panasonic toughbook that is strapped to his chest while, wait for it… JUMPING OUT OF A […]

  • Sometimes I Wonder

    I’ve been doing Forensic 4cast for over 2 years now. In that two years I’ve always done what I think is right and appropriate for those people that enjoy listening, reading, and participating in the podcast and website.
