Last weeks winner is Tim Furlong, who stated the correct answer, "From wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth) : [Bluetooth] operates in the license-free ISM band at 2.45 GHz. In order to avoid interfering with other protocols which use the 2.45 GHz band, the Bluetooth protocol divides the band into 79 channels (each 1 MHz wide) and changes channels up to 1600 times per second." He is the proud owner of "Nessus, Snort and Ethereal Power Tools". Congrat to Tim!

You guys did an awesome job with the video (or are doing, I haven't finished it yet)! However, I just wanted to ask:

Does Nick have a gun in his pocket? I think it's his cell phone clipped to his belt, but I'm not sure...

I have a Windows XP Home 802.11b/g laptop (recent purchase) WinXP Pro desktop am thinking about a MacBook Pro to run Windoze (sorry), Linux and Mac OS

Any purchasing advice on a good wireless router/firewall that might also have support for 802.11n would be great, to somewhat future proof.

Hey Paul and Larry,

I just finished listening to the last podcast on my lunch break and I have to say that it was excellent. I especially enjoyed the conversations about the number of cats at someones house as well as story time with Nick. I do enjoy story time :-) I was wondering if you and Larry and Nick could give kind of a history of how you guys got to where you are right now from a knowledge standpoint. I am currently moving into a new consulting position at my company where I will begin doing pen tests and compliance work for banks, hospitals, ect. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, BJ
