    Hah. In turn is it sad that I know an operator who has?

    Very cool. You been to the big turbine farm near South Point in Hawaii?

    You don't have acrophobia do ya?
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Actually no I haven't, but my boss has when he worked for GE, I use to work for GE but have moved on since... I'm not scared of anything but spiders really.... I can maybe get some pictures of those turbines tho, i have a nice picture of the site I mainly work on here in IOWA.... In 5 years Iowa will have more Turbines than any other state... Texas is number one as of now.... Also GE's Salem Pitch system uses .tar files.... haven't looked into it much yet tho....

    Oh yes many times, That was belived to be done on purpose, although there was a Siemens turbine that fell over in washington and kill 3 guys but due to inexperience, they locked the blades at 0 degrees and it was pointed into the wind and they had no way of stopping it and it spun and acted just like the video you speak of, you should be able to good that siemens turbine falling in washington a year or two ago... I work on strictly GE 1.5MW Turbines, I know them like the back of my hand......I'm 23yrs old btw....

    Work for a large university managing Cisco switches. Only able to do layer 2 functions as of right now. Trying to get my CCSP and get a promotion next year.

    Ran into BackTrack and the offsec course about 8 months ago (Now I'm hooked). I am having a very difficult time trying to manage my time studying between Cisco and Infosec. Got about 16 books I have purchased recently and read about 1/4 of all of them. Having a hard time committing to any of them

    Just so much to learn and not enough time
