  1. Getting in on the 2nd. Come find me at the oCTF table or wandering the hotel drunk.
  2. The other thing you should consider is how power efficient your power supply is. There are a lot of lower quality ones out there that use a ton of power which is essentially wasted.
  3. Check out Sleuthkit, it's the best you're gonna get for free.
  4. Get it! http://www.hex-rays.com/idapro/idadown.htm
  5. If it's checking by IP address the only way to really be able to cheat it is to connect with different ip addresses...
  6. Let's see them keep it at $35 with a halfway decent screen and able to do 3d acceleration like the iPad and other tablets can do. For $35 it's pretty cool, but the fresh rate of the screen and the fact that it's not multitouch are the two things right off the bat that kill it for me.
  7. Wow it actually provides Cell information as well.
  8. llvm+clang is starting to pickup steam and will be replacing GCC in OS X and FreeBSD in the near future. It has some really nice features and if you're not in a windows environment should check it out.
  9. My friend was telling me he was having some graphics issues after a kernel upgrade in Fedora 13 maybe a week ago, could be related.
  10. Been looking into learning more about LDAP potentially using it in at least one upcoming project.
  11. ooooooo sexy!
  12. I definitely wouldn't say that open source is taking away jobs, but I don't know that it's specifically creating much in the way of new work. In my own experience I really haven't seen difficulty finding work within the development line of work. Most people I've seen complain about lack of work either don't network well or don't have the necessary skills. I've found myself out of work many time and it's never taken long to find more freelance work or other opertunities.
  13. I'll be in vegas from wednesday - monday running oCTF in the contest room, feel free to stop by and say hello, play, or be a gofer (still need some). Probably gonna be busy thursday with setup but I'm hoping to get to the toxic bbq eventually. wednesday night and sunday are really the only times I'm available.
  14. It's what they do, how else do you expect them to make their money other than their shitty magazine with old/incorrect/bad articles?
  15. lol, so stoked to try this out
  16. The funny thing about Defcon is that so many people are gonna just gonna be like "zomg it's fucking Adrian Lamo", if they even know who he is, and be all excited to see him that nothing will probably happen. Sure there will be a small minority of people there who know who he is and what he's done but still. I still think the funniest thing was last year at the IOActive party the anti-sec guys who got a picture with Dan Kaminsky with an anti-sec sign while he was wasted.
  17. Poorly written article which is obviously biased trying to blame Apple for this. I'm not going to defend everything that Apple does, but the article doesn't even mention the details until half way down the page and until then it's all about how Apple fucked up. When you finally get to how it was done, it's all at&t's fault for having an insecure website.
  18. What does Kevin Paulson have to do with this? They mention him in the article but I don't see how he is connected at all?
  19. ...WTF are you even talking about?
  20. PDANet is available, and I think that android based phones will have this issue much less than other ones that are more locked down by the vendor or provider, but the real issue is the lack of affordable tethering built in to the actual phone itself. Sure I can go jailbreak my iPhone and go grab any of the tethering apps out there, but I shouldn't have to. I understand that it is the goal of the provider to make money off their service, but paying $30 for your data plan for your phone, on top of the standard phone service, plus tethering/data plans for other devices that you own is just crazy.
  21. many new smartphones are coming with the ability for the phone to act as a hotspot, so it is reducing the need to purchace a connection for multiple devices... not to mention many broadband providers offering free wifi to there customers (while wifi coverage can be spotty, it is an added bonus when you see optimum wifi, or verizon wifi etc, pop up when you are scanning for an open hotspot) I haven't heard of any phones in the US that allow the phone to tether without paying a monthly charge without hacking the phone in some way. I know that other countries have cell providers which are allowing this, but from what I have seen all of the ones in the US are trying to squeeze every penny out of their customers that they can while spending as little money as they possibly can to upgrade and maintain their network. Android 2.2 (FroYo) allows tethering, but if that feature is disabled is left at the discretion of the carrier. However, if you buy your phone from Google and buy service from a carrier, they shouldn't be able to prevent you from tethering, or they shouldn't have a way of controlling if you are tethering. Tethering is blocked on the sim card, not on the phone which is why the iPhone isn't able to tether unless jailbroken and done through a 3rd party app with AT&T. Tethering is supposed to be available at some point this year for AT&T customers but will likely be around $30+ for however much actual bandwidth they give you if the pricing is anything like the blackberry plans.

  23. You should probably not publicly speak about breaking into a system, it's just not really a smart idea. Aside from that, if you are going to attempt to break into it, it's probably worth learning a little bit before trying because that's absolutely not an md5 hash. It's obvious what it is, but since you're obviously doing something illegal and don't know what you're doing, you likely wont get much help here.
  24. I'm genuinely interested in where the tablet/os race is going to go within the next few years. I honestly can't say that I'm really happy with any of the products out there right now (hardware or software) but I'm reasonably happy with my iPhone. I think that there definitely needs to be some reform done to the pricing in regard to the mobile network plans as right now it's just simply too expensive to own multiple devices (laptop, phone, tablet) and pay for a connection for each. Hopefully the amount of competition out there right now coupled with the LTE technology that is beginning to be implemented will help to solve these problems.
  25. Just to add to that about CW. My Dad told me of this guy he knew during the Vietnam war. He could copy down CW with one hand, while reading a magazine in the other. But he couldn't understand the first bit of radio theory. That's not all that difficult to believe. Decoding CW is really just a matter of pattern recognition, and being able to do it that fast while multitasking is fairly impressive, but the fact that he couldn't understand any of the radio theory makes perfect sense. Understanding CW is simply pattern recognition while understanding the concepts behind radio data transfer requires at least some slightly advanced math as well as physics. All in all I thought the movie was interesting and it's unfortunate that it wont ever be released officially or in a higher quality/finished state. I thought that a lot of the content was interesting, however I don't agree with a lot of it. There was a lot of evangelizing of Lamo's actions which is really just stupid. Sure his intent may not have been to deface or or disrupt service of any companies, but I think the individual who talked about his narcissistic personality had it right on. It was all a game to him proving that he was smarter than the people getting paid to do it. Learning more about Lamo and what he did, I immediately drew connections to the guy from into the wild who left his privileged, although dysfunctional, life to explore the world. I think that a lot of the decisions made were very self centered with very little consideration into the effects their actions had.
