Physical Security (Bug Id: LUCA)

My kids are – of course – “button freaks”: they both love buttons and keys and knobs, and all of that category of things… and of course you could not expect anything different from a family of geeks with all sort of devices in the house.

Having said this, I figured out again that I must re-implement “physical security” measures (read: plastic tape on the ON/OFF switch on the computer case to avoid it from being pressed…) to maintain “high availability” and block these “kiddies” from running “Denial-Of-Service Attacks” against my test servers….

Of course I’m having fun on Luca’s behaviour now, but Joshua (the older boy) used to be just as enthusiast as his brother is now and he shut down my firewall and several test machines in more than one occasion….
