  • So, what’s the cheapest way to and from New York, I wonder? You know, without selling my body at truck stops … #
  • I could get to NYC via greyhound for $99 bucks, but it takes 3 days! #
  • … 3 days each way, even. #
  • @ursonate $164 each way … $350; or $328 via expedia. maybe. looks like jetblue is pretty identical with all the other lines. in reply to ursonate #
  • Amtrak would cost more than flying, and take days longer … wild. #
  • @ursonate Yeah, it’s kinda looking that way … but, I’m going to keep my hopes up for something! in reply to ursonate #
  • The suite I was trying to remember was PortSentry by Psionic, but going to psionic.com it appears they’ve been acquired by Cisco. #
  • … they were acquired in 2002. #
  • But, the tools were released as opensource at http://sourceforge.net/projects/sentrytools/ #
  • … which have been dormant since May 2003. #
  • Back in the day, I swore by that tool. #
  • Oh, but it looks like only part of the suite got uploaded. The last note from May ’03 mentions uploading more but then silence. #
  • Here’s an article that purports to be from ’08 talking about PortSentry over at Novell, so not forgotten: http://tinyurl.com/la4ors #
