Last month's contest: What's your favorite app?
Last month's contest asked readers to tell us about their favorite application, real or imaginary. We had many entries for the trustworthy bash, screen, and ncftp. In the end, the choice was clear. Kevin M. Gill won for taking security seriously, his active imagination, and his optimism:
Favorite Application: The Punk Monkey Firewall
Program Description: In today's networks, we face a slew of security threats, mostly from well-meaning users of the Windows OS. With the Punk Monkey Firewall running, the host PC or server will be actively scanning for threats. Upon finding any, the application will dispatch a few monkeys to visit and punk-slap our well-meaning Windows user. This is a _very_ important component to my network, but may not be available to users not living in close proximity to a zoo.
Kevin will receive a $20 Cool Stuff Store gift certificate for his winning entry. Thanks to him, a few more monkeys are employed and happily contributing to society.
