I was just thinking...yeh I know, I shouldn't strain myself ;-)

You guys talk ALOT about pen testing how about some content about the business of pen testing? Like 1. what skills would a prospective pen tester need to acquire? 2. how do you price a pen test engagement...I'm thinking most of these gigs fall in the 25k to 50k range...but I may be totally full of it. 3. how do you promote or advertise your business? 4. advertisement/business development issues? 5. Yeh core impact is great but how do you pass that cost along to your customers? etc etc talk amongst yourselves ;-)

First, a bit of what I hope is constructive criticism. I listened to a couple of podcasts "on the speakers" once, and my wife listened to a bit too. She now calls you guys the college guys (as in, I say "I was listening to the college guys podcast," and she knows what I mean). I don't want to criticize your style, because I like it, but while I realize you tend to have a wobbly pop or three while doing the 'cast, and beer makes one belch, and Larry (I think it's you, Larry) produces some fine ones... I don't think listeners necessarily need to hear that. I'll keep listening, but you may want to consider muting your mic.

[Why do people get so offended with the belching?]

<a whole bunch more stuff followed, mostly for twitchy, and included everything from what operating system planes run, to C vs Java, to the open wireless question, to Stephen Harper's alleged kitten eating, to are honeypots entrapment?, to OS X vs open source, to drive encryption>

[Whew, none of which I really care to discuss on the show because they are not so much security related and more a religious or politcal debate which we are happy to discuss in email or in the IRC channel but not bore the listeners with, its just not what this podcast is about.]

Paul, Larry, Twitch, The Mason

THe Best Buy loacted at 825 Pilgrim Way, Green Bay, WI 54303 - Phone number 920-494-2950 employs Chad Davis (http://www.justice.gov/criminal/cybercrime/davis.htm ) the "Global Hell" Hacker.

I have a friend who also works at the store and has told me stories about what the guy says he does. First thought is -how would you like this guy sent to your home to work on your computer - second thought is - how would you like this guy to take your credit card at the store - third thought is - what the hell is Best Buy doing for a hiring policy.

Great show,

Do you guys know a way to locate and identify servers on the web without scanning? I am looking for publicly accessible databases or search engine queries, that, for example, list all publicly accessible dns servers….

[we do, but if we told you, we'd have to send ninjas to kill you]
