Site Updates

Recently I’ve been making some updates to this site.  Here is a brief list:

New Theme

If you’re looking at the site right now, you’ve probably noticed that the theme has changed.  I had been using Andreas Viklund’s 1024px for a few years, and decided it was time for something new.  I ended up drinking the kool-aid and went with the Thesis theme.  Thesis is a (very) configurable theme framework.  If you run a WordPress blog, you may want to check out Thesis.

Site move

Welcome to the new Forensic Computing blog ( The old site ( is no longer active, although I will keep it up for archival purposes. I’m no longer on blogger, instead this is a self-hosted WordPress installation.

About this blog

This blog will be a spot where I post thoughts about theoretical computer science (computing theory), digital forensics, information security, and other miscellaneous musings, and optionally their relation to digital forensics
