Humor

UPPER PODUNK, SOUTH DAKOTA -- It seemed like a simple experiment. Put a million monkeys in front of a million Linux boxes and see how long it would take for them to generate a Shakesperian play or a useful Perl script.

"And now, after six months of banging away on keyboards and making assorted grunting sounds, our monkeys haven't generated anything worthwhile."

Stotime was dead sure that the monkeys would be able to prepare a valid Perl script within a matter of days.

First let's talk about why regulation usually works, then, why it won't work for security.
