About Technology or Die

Technology or Die started as the personal blog of Adam Schaeffer. The goal of the site was to be a central point for documenting and sharing projects and ideas about various networking technologies.  The name for the site comes from the “die” function that is typical of various scripting languages. Perhaps you have seen syntax similar to this before?

technology() or die;

With out the “function” of technology succeeding the script would exit; or die.  Similarly, without technology working smoothly anything and everything dependent on it would die in an ugly way…

    Hi Adam,

    I thought you’d want to know about a broken link I found on this page – https://technologyordie.com/verifying-cisco-ios-file-integrity

    It’s the link to Microsoft’s File Integrity Verifier tool (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841290) which I’m getting an error on.

    Perhaps if you are open to updating the page you could point people to my colleague’s list of file integrity monitoring tools instead?

    Here’s the link – https://comparite.ch/file-integrity

    I hope that’s helpful.
