It is just small sliver of the thousands of attacks per second against Norse global sensors.

Thus, certain sensors in the dataset are highlighted on the map, but is not indicative of the true distribution.

Seattle is also popular it seems of late.

There exist millions of Norse sensors throughout the darknet and internet, showing all would clutter the map :P

Can he help in recruiting Ireland's top hoopsters? Don't know if they have any, but it wouldn't hurt to get a recruiting call from the US Ambassador. Also, soccer talent should be on his radar.

SLU grad James Gunn's new movie - Guardians of the Galaxy - comes out this weekend.

Take your kids, grand kids, wives, Jimbo's hos, I own Disney stock and it took a hit today. Along with everything else, so I won 't be joining the SLU millionaire's club anytime soon.

You should invest your money with Willie. He'll get that portfolio turned around.

Guardians of the Galaxy raked in a record-setting $94 million over the weekend, and it's looking like it will become a franchise.

Time to hit Gunn up for a donation.

Just about the entire Gunn family has attended SLU, including a couple at SLU Law School

The list of politicians and judges (past and present) could go on page after page. But here is a small additional sampling to those listed in earlier posts:
