Home

Welcome! This is the professional web site of David A. Curry, CISSP. Please use the links in the Navigation bar on the left to browse around this site, or to visit my presences on other sites.

PDF copies of all of my publications, including all three of my books (Using C on the UNIX System, UNIX System Security: A Guide for Users and System Administrators, and UNIX Systems Programming for SVR4), are available from the Publications page.

The source code for some of my more (in)famous and popular software applications is available from the Software page. For various reasons, I no longer maintain any of these programs. However, in cases where somebody else has picked up support for one of the applications, I have provided a link to their site.

There's some other stuff on the Miscellaneous page; most of this stuff is not related to my profession, but is shared for one reason or another.

If there's something else in particular that you're looking for, please feel free to contact me.

Bits in the Wind "Theme Song"

with apologies to Kerry Livgren and Kansas
Sung to the tune of "Dust in the Wind"

I click my mouse, Google’s feeling lucky and the search returns
All these sites, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Bits in the wind, all they are is bits in the wind

Blogs and Tweets, adding to the drivel in an endless sea
Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, LOLcats, torrents, spam, and porn
Bits in the wind, all they are is bits in the wind

Once it’s linked, a posting lasts forever on the World Wide Web
A zillion sites, sucking all your bandwidth till the end of time
Bits in the wind, all they are is bits in the wind

Bits in the wind, everything is bits in the wind
