  2. oh.... snap.  Didn't see that one coming. :-/

  3. Being Pythonic about things.

      So long as you're being completely pythonic and not being 3-5 python 2.7 modules sprinkled into a larger project written in some other language like C.

    I actually worked in tech support for AOL back in those days. At 19-20 something was the best job ever. Not only did I get free "all you can eat" Internet back in the early 90's; but they paid me overtime to browse the web all day/night long while helping people put a CD in a computer and configure a modem. There really was no downside until they finally went out of business.
  5. A noob could spend 10-15 years in sheer frustration, if they start out with coding exploits from scratch. :-P
  6. "Conjunction, junction - what's your function?".  Dang I loved School House Rock!

  7. This thread has inspired me to purchase a huge CRT Sony Trinitron from 1994. Then set it outside some apartments just to watch people try an lift up. The only flaw is, I will need to carry out there.
  8. Imagine if the Internet regressed back to 24.4, 33.6, or  56K for 24 hours?  Will never happen, but made the start up sound on meh Windows to a 56K modem connecting. The memories. :-)

      Frontier's just as bad. 4 DSLAMs in a city of 36k and 45 Mbit/s in backhaul to each one of them, haven't been upgraded since Verizon's wireline glory days. Don't have to worry much about that since Comcast quietly launched gigabit DOCSIS here :D

      I pretty much have a choice between Clink and Comcast. Clink is 1.5Mbs and limited because I am right at 5 1/2 Kilometers from the C/O. Had to have Clink set my speed at the C/O to about 850kbs,  stopping the modem from retraining every 45 minutes.


      Which really sucked on anything streaming or needing longer than 45 minutes to download. Also, didn't like the fact I had to tell the techs exactly what to do, "trust me, reseting my modem will not work. Let's set my link down until it needs stops retraining the modem, I am too far for 1.5Mbs.".

      Have you tried service with Comcast? Out here they have a cable node hanging off a pole damn never every other block, so you're always close to the point where copper connections get muxed onto the fiber network. Internet is unironically great, customer service not so much

  9. I have been working on Facebook password, online generator. It makes a unique password that is hard to guess but easy to remember by permutating part the user's full email address and phone number. The funny thing is, people would actually use this with their Facebook email address. haha
  10. http://lifehacker.com/5505400/how-id-hack-your-weak-passwords?skyline=true&s=i Fairly basic stuff, but still interesting. Sorry, if this article has already been posted, did a quick search and couldn't find anything.
  11. Learning R. :-)

  12. DMZ on your Internet with exploitable services and an IDS in place to see if people are still scanning for these?
  13. Haha! Hardware and software condoms! If I am not mistaken, there is a pretty serious security issue with the way USB works. The firmware pretty much needs to be signed or read-only and signed. Not that I could exploit it. But underestimating cyber-criminals is how Admins get burnt, usually. :-( EDIT: apologies to BinRev for misuse of the term "hacker" on here.
  14. Seriously, sounds like a fun. But would need some kind of USB Condom. This is why Admins need to be a hardass with USB drives and personal computing devices plugged into a corporate LAN. :-P
  15. No. Before my tenure the entire company was down for 48 hours due to cryptolocker from a ThumbDrive. That was inconvenient for the owner who lost 48 hours worth of business. Of course Managers, Owners, IT people, and senior sales staff received training from IT and were in allowed security groups. Honestly, it worked out great for end users and IT. They had reliable systems for work and IT was able to provide better IT services w/o needing to worry every time Randsomeware was headlined.
  16. Mainly for booting Linux and repair utilities. Never bring them to work anymore unless they are property of my employer. Too much crossing lines with corporate computing policy. For moving stuff around between computers, an Android phone with a web-based file browser is the way to go at work, IMO. Never need to plug into a computer and is ok by most any corporate computing policy with employee wifi My last job as a sys admin, actually locked USB Storage in Group Policy for all but two or three privileged security-groups. Too much can go wrong, and if I saw someone who was not authorized plugging in a thumb drive, it was mine to interrogate for security including: virus, illegal downloads, or any other illegal activity or violating policy defined by corporate computing policy. Event Viewer would tell me who and where these were being denied by GPO as well. For personal use. I do always have a low-profile 32GB thumb drive plugged into my laptop, though. Gives another 32GB of storage that can be faster via sneaker-net than most crappy WiFi networks. Agree 100% with glitch on using non-trusted computers. Also, bonus points if those are 5" floppy disks.
  17. I didn't get it either. I usually don't click on Glitch's links, though. ;-)

    2. tekio


      You are assuming someone doent use quotes to avoid playing games with SQLi filters.

  21. Does drinking Rum all day make an alcoholic or a Pirate? 

    1. scratchytcarrier


      It's your funeral.

    2. tekio


      Yes. Lots of Rum there, too. Thank you. 

    3. tweeks


      since most pirates are alcoholics anyway, i vote for it making you a pirate.  ARRRRRRRRRRRRR 


  22. Tiger poking! Now that is a sport amongst men.

  23. I see. We prefer Wordpress. Do you have Wordpress experience?


    Yes, I do. I can fix your Wordpress issues without a "plugin". :-P
