On this day of Thanksgiving in America, I'd like to take the opportunity, and give you the readers the chance as well, to express thanx for the tools that exist that make our lives easier.  I am talking about the software tools that we all know and love that enable us to do our jobs, such as packet sniffers, syslog servers, intrusion detection systems, etc., etc. 

My personal thanx goes out to all those who have created, and kept updated, traffic sniffers.  Whether I have been working as a network admin, system admin, or security admin I have found the sniffer to be the first tool I go to in my toolbox when I have a question about something cooking on my network.

Now it's your turn; what are you thankful for?  Maybe the security information manager that helps consolidates all the events in your world for easier analysis?
