This is your Tech Tidbits Daily for Monday, April 25th, 2005. Today's podcast contains two technical news items, and one subscriber feedback.
First is that W2K News recently had a pointer to a new column on SearchWinSystems.com called "Beginner's Guide to Scripting" by Christa Anderson, a noted authority on the subject. The first article for this column covers: Objects, properties and methods; Scripting hosts and the interpreter; How are scripts interpreted?; and Data types you'll use. This seems like a great getting started resource.
Next is eEye has announced a new free wireless network scanning utility called Retina WiFi that can detect wireless devices connected to your networking environment. It can also find rogue access points or improperly setup transmitting laptops. In addition, there is also advanced reporting capabilities enabled so you can better access your security posture. Currently the released versions are for Windows, an optimized Japanese version for Windows, and PocketPC.
