Just type harder on clicky keys

Definitely the way to go.

I think most of them these days also have bluetooth built in, allowing you to set up speakers or headsets or whatever in a clean way.

Actually, setting up "the rig" is not a problem, because I have a dock. Dell has been excellent about keeping the same dock connector on all laptops for a long time now. I simply dropped it into the dock and my big monitor, clicky keyboard, trackball, speakers, and headphones all came up.

I have a decent headset. It is wireless but non-bluetooth. It's a Plantronics Savi W720. This headset wouldn't have been my first choice from a comfort point of view, but it's reasonably comfortable, and there was one available in the office for the taking. The cool thing about this headset is that the base attaches simultaneously to the computer via USB, to my desktop phone using its headset port, and to my mobile phone using bluetooth (so I guess it technically does have bluetooth, but not to the headset itself).

Which ultrabook did you get? I've been running a Dell 7370 (a bit of an upgrade from the XPS, but a similar chassis) for about 9 months now. It's decent, but it doesn't feel like a computer if you know what I mean.

I have the 7470, which has a 14" screen. My last two laptops had 17" screens so I'm still getting used to it. When it's docked at my desk it is faster than the machine I had before, mainly because of the SSD. On my lap it feels a bit less-than-computer-like, and the small keyboard does slow me down. It's an acceptable compromise considering the light weight. As a daily driver without an external monitor/keyboard it would probably drive me crazy.

I'm listening to the "DEFCON RADIO" channel on SomaFM, and the bumper just played that says "We all know DEFCON doesn't slow down much until it's over" ... and at the same time I'm reading the announcement that DEFCON has been permanently canceled (now and in the future). The announcement is so much prattle about how the world needs security professionals and not hackers.
DT sold out :)

I don't think I can fit that many syllables into the song, though.

"What the world... needs now... is security professionals... sweet security professionals... it's the only thing that there's just too little of...

Most security "professionals" really do need a hole in their head. I know a few good ones, but most are just fast talkers who know how to print a Nessus scan report onto their own letterhead.

Younger security professionals want to do the hard-core stuff they aren't qualified to do. Consequently, they half-ass the grunt work because it's boring, and they're above all those tedious procedures. Which constitutes almost everything about handling security, heh.

But, because 'cyber security' is such a buzzword, and people need to be fully buzzword compliant, the clueless hot-shots (or, as I mistyped earlier, hot-shits) manage to get that sweet lateral promotion propelling their mediocrity by rewarding their bullshit behavior.

There are, fortunately, saner heads out there, but you probably want to, say, hire my company to test your prospective employee to see if they're a hot-shit-head, or if they really can do what you need of them.

Heh. Of course, you can tell I'm not a shill here because I am not saying where you can go to purchase our services. If you can't find it, then my company has problems, and you probably don't want to use us anyway.

No argument with that.  My team would likely be a lot smaller without those Hot Sh1ts, tho, since fixing their "good works" makes up about 1/3 of our business.  :-D

I should probably talk with our folks here about that.

It is possible that we're a threat to the business model of most cybersecurity firms, if we seek to help said firms determine the competency of their staff, thus reducing the amount of fixing, and thus reducing labor in general. We probably need to consider a different business model.

OTOH,  you could probably partner with a cyber sec consulting firm and make it a consultative offering.....then they may even sell it for you.

So, for those of you who aren't in on the joke ... DEFCON announces its cancellation *every* year. It's a running gag.

I keep reading that as "Grelf" instead of "Grief"
