Just in case the installation is a failure...

I had "plans"


After a closer look at the websites and search terms used by my boss's son, I think I learned a few things about him that otherwise were unknown to me.

Most notably, I could tell that he was a very big fan of older music and specifically Bob Dylan, and that his other interest fell into older film and actors.

Some of his links went to Bob Dylan forum sites, and I believe that the Yahoo group page was probably at one time linked to a Bob Dylan yahoo group, however, there were no saved cookies to help me find the truth to that.

The only site that was off-topic was the site Obscure Store, which seemed like a list of random stories...

As far as the Google search terms, Michael Landon was someone he searched for that was a star on the show Bonanza...maybe a favorite?

Also, when I went into work today, I found out that my boss's son had left this week to go and visit his girlfriend who lives in Illinois.....I guess we know her address now huh?
After 2 attempts at following someone for this assignment, and not being very happy with the results, I went in a different direction.

I decided I would try to follow someone on the internet instead.

My first attempt, was to disable all the preferences in TUCC room 415 on the computer I use that would automatically clear browsing history, cookies, saved form data, etc.

After monitoring this for about 2 days, I came to the realization that I was most likely the only person that uses that computer....

So I went to the Tech center and spent a half hour scoping out people who would get up and forget to log out, but for some reason even if they didn't log out, their browsing history was gone.

So finally, I pulled this off in a place where I could have a little more job.

My boss's son comes in often and sits on a computer in the back after hours to use the internet, so today, I checked that computer after a few days use, and logged the browsing history and Google search terms.
This site was no longer active, however after some quick research, I found that it was a Bob Dylan fan site of some sort, and was shut down due to unpopularity.
