This year's winter weather is a mere dusting compared to the winter storm that college students are grappling with this weekend at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. Eight teams of students are fending off a massive cyber attack in the midst of a storm more devastating than Maryland's blizzard of 1993, prompting the governor and president to declare states of emergency and deploy aid to residents. The scenario provides the backdrop for the teams competing Friday and Saturday at the ninth annual Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition.

William Troxler to share an inside joke: "There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary code and those who don't." For the technologically challenged, "10" represents the number two in binary, a computer language. Welcome to "geekdom," as Troxler -- who keeps a cookie jar marked "geek repellent" on his desk -- affectionately calls Capitol College, a Laurel institution that markets itself as Maryland's only free-standing science and technology school.

As a program manager, the 41-year-old Clarksville resident has a dual role that requires her to work internally and externally.
