  1. You are looking for tshark (http://www.wireshark.org/docs/man-pages/tshark.html).
  2. Arch FTW. Although, it is high time I work in some BSD.
  3. "The maximum file size for ext2/ext3 is actually dependent on the choice of blocksize and hardware architecture" Why are the maximum file size and file system size dependent on the block size? It appears that 4KB is the standard block size in x86; however, ext4 supports larger files and larger file systems with the same block size of 4KB. Does anyone know the origin of this limitation in ext2/ext3 and/or how they overcame it in ext4?
  4. I second livinded. Competent web designers/developers agree the best practice is to separate your presentation from your content completely. Use external CSS, please.
  5. Ohm, you obviously get off on policing binrev. Seriously, I've seen you crush countless topics with your sense of superior morality. The only thing that impresses me about you is that you always find some way to condescend. You've got a real talent.
  6. I second this. Despite what mirrorshades said, there are fundamental/core material that any self respecting computer geek will know. You don't have to be an expert, but I recommend looking at these five. They are certainly among the most consequential on the web for now. Only learning what you want to learn, or what you are interested in is a pretty sad way to go about it. Learn everything you can.
  7. i work atttt burggaa kinngg... too good.
  8. lol "kill all the .." was really promising.
  9. The hosts file should have been resolving it, there was a valid entry matching that of the ServerName directive in the apache configuration.
  10. I recently updated a system that hadn't been administered for quite some time and apache stopped working properly. After 600+ megabytes and over 400 updates the server started pointing virtual host traffic to https, which the server wasn't using. I checked the config and the virtual hosts was setup as: NameVirtualHost * <VirtualHost *> #... </VirtualHost> After trying the alternative *:80, I fixed the problem by specifying the IP addresses and port instead of using the catch all asterisk wildcard; however, I had to write a search and replace script to fix around 50 virtual host configuration files in a directory. I am plagued by curiosity as to why the configuration stopped working after months and months of proper operation, and need a more concrete answer for my boss. I am leaning towards the deprecation of that method, but even that seems improbable. I have googled (yeah it is a verb) the hell out of it, to no avail. It doesn't help that whoever configured it didn't to do a very clean upgrade to apache2 as per config migration. I realize this is a very specific problem, but if anyone has any ideas or even a better google search, I would be much obliged.
  11. if you know python already you should check out django, its a python web development framework. http://www.djangoproject.com http://www.djangobook.com If you are going to do any type of web development, even dynamic content, you need to learn html and css. They are the bread and butter, and they aren't difficult to pick up. http://www.tizag.com
  12. Everyone seems to be forgetting about the sudoers file. Try looking at the visudo command, which is essential a specialized editor for the sudoers config file. sudo visudo Here is an excerpt that may clarify: # User privilege specification root ALL=(ALL) ALL # Members of the admin group may gain root privileges %admin ALL=(ALL) ALL As you can see this is what governs a users ability to sudo, if you want a user to have full sudo power like the initial user in Ubuntu you can add a line such as 'username ALL=(ALL) ALL' or, if you want to customize what sudoing power a user has, the documentation should be show you how.
  13. hydra -l {USERNAME} -P {WORDLIST} -e ns -f -s -vV {ROUTER IP ADDRESS} http-get / this usually works for me, with a good word list.
  14. Keep in mind that FAT32 can't store files larger than 4GB, which might not be a problem for you, but if you have high quality movies you'll be out of luck.
  15. I'm well aware taping two ninjas together doesn't make one giant ninja. My question is on splitting tasks from a central computer. I am also well aware there are hardware and software limitations. Have you seen the OpenMosix and ClusterKnoppix projects? With all due respect, shut them off and get rid of them is a pathetic response mate.
