Right now personally I should be doing research towards metasploit. I really want to learn it, but I feel uninspired.

Are you guys focused on anything particular at the moment?

To be honest with you not really. I should be continuing work on git://repo.or.cz/hrr.git but I haven't really been feeling like it. Over all I've been kinda lazy for the past few weeks. At the very moment I'm reading about the x font server protocol and listening to someones speech about plan 9. I'll probably just surf the interwebs tonight and not really do anything productive.

Trying to make a portable wood stove that'll actually work decently.

Fire, more complicated then you think.

In the fifteen minutes of spare time I manage to scrap up every week, I work on my tool that makes runtime process infection easy.

Hmm, sounds pretty neat. How satisfied are you with it so far?

Pretty satisified. There's still tons more work to do, but it does all it's originally designed to do. It's public, you can find it on my site (Retoros, linked to in my sig).

Hmm.. *snoops around source code* Looks pretty neat! Here, I added a configure-script to libhijack libhijack-0.3.tar_.gz I hope that didn't break anything. You can now ..

./configure
make
make install

.. in the distribution root directory

For the last few months I've been part of a research group at my university working on developing an interpreter to help research provable program correctness (programs that use pointers in particular). In the next couple of weeks I am going to be applying for PhD positions, most likely in the field of systems biology, although it's very in demand right now so it might not be possible. Then over christmas I will be doing some more work on a project I started last year that involved modeling the reactions inside a biological cell.

toooo much work :(

Doing some work around the home; rewiring with Cat6a-STP, rolling out Cisco IP-phones and configuring Call Manager and Unity.
After that, replacing the wireless cards in the laptops with Wireless-N, no more of this silly wireless-g + speedboost. :thumbsup:

Way freaking cool, dude. Thanks a lot. I've been using pmake, simply because it's all I know and have focused more on the code than the Makefile. I'll take a look at your additions tonight and might release 0.3.1 this week with that. Thanks again. :)

Wow, that actually sounds pretty cool! For myself personally I've always wanted to build a keyboard-mouse that just has an ethernet jack and speaks synergy's protocol. Best of luck with your project! I've been shy of the arduino myself but it looks pretty leet.

I am working on getting my MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional) certification so that I can get my MCSA certification. This will hopefully lead to me being a drone in the corporate world somewhere where I can make lots of money. Not having an income sucks.

I'm working on designing an RFID-authenticated alarm and home control system for my parents' house. We're out in the country, but there have been a lot of break-ins to our neighbors' houses lately. Besides alarms, it will also control HVAC and hot water service, so that we can minimize energy useage when no one's home (vacation, et c.) Right now, I'm working on OpenGL code to display a wireframe floor plan of the house, with beacons for the various alarm sensors. I got a really good deal on flush-mount Honeywell magnetic door/window sensors, so every opening to the outside is on its own monitoring loop, rather than having a handful of "zones" with the sensors wired in series.

I'm also working on the hardware that interfaces the sensors to the control computer. It's Microchip PIC based, and also controls the RFID access. I've got some RFID radio chips coming in as samples from Texas Instruments, so we'll see how that goes -- time to learn to solder QFN!

Until the real alarm system is finished, I've got a relay logic state machine put together to sound an outdoor annunciator if anyone trips a sensor.

After working in the IT field for well over a decade I quit IT for good this summer. I had become so burned out and sick of computing that I figured that after leaving IT I would never want to touch another computer again.

To my surprise, now that some months have passed since quitting IT, I am finding that my interests in computing and the h/p scene is slowly coming back. :smile:

So as far as projects, I am trying to get the basics of how Slackware does things down (currently running it in a VM) and once I feel competent with it I will install it on my main laptop as my main OS.

Switching from Delphi (pascal) to C# as my language of choice. I love Delphi, but there are so many more code examples for c# out there. Also, learning PERL and C as well.

Just getting tired of looking for the right app all the time, when it would be so simple to develop one that will do exactly what is needed.

All of our business software at work is custom stuff written in Delphi...between that and using Novell NetWare over IPX on Linux machines, no one will ever figure our network out.
