Firstly, I've been getting
While I started my post-college career in software development, specifically COBOL, I figured it was time to learn a scripting language. Currently, I write many of my auditing tools using vbscript, however, it is not portable across multiple platforms. After thinking about it for a while, I've decided to teach myself Python; so there could be some Python posts in the future. Many of the open source DFIR tools that I've seen/used are either written in either Perl or Python, so it's high-time I learned one of those languages.
Finally, if there are (larger than normal) gaps in posting, it is because I am studying for my SANS GCIH re-certification. Without realizing it, I took my GCFA class outside of the window where I could have used it for my GCIH re-certification credits. Fortunately, I really like the material in the GCIH, and I put much of it into practice. It's been fun to read the updated manuals and go through the DVD with new and updated software.
