When you watch Skyfall with three fellow networking researchers, comments such as the following ensue:

“Why is the list of all agents on a single file, on a single laptop hard drive, and encrypted so weakly that it’s crackable in less than a week?”

“Wait. How can you even trace someone after you strip the headers off the packet?”

“That’s a CISCO switch in that data center! … Huh? What terrible wiring. Where’s the cooling system? Is that a data center built with raspberry pies?”

“I can see assembly code on that terminal.”

“Who the hell plugs-in a terrorist’s laptop to your security sensitive internal network?”

“From where does that little radio transmitter’s antenna get that much power to transmit such a signal in the first place?”

I love being around fellow nerds.
