  1. thanks man, I wish it would clone the entire drive, including the MBR. Ah well. Hopefully I'll figure something out.
  2. If i use rsync to back up the entire contents of a mounted boot drive to an external drive, will it create an exact clone of it? For Instance, if I typed... sudo rsync -xrlptgoEv --progress --delete / /Volumes/BackupDrive would /Volumes/BackupDrive be a perfect replacement if my primary drive croaked?
  3. Man, if i could find a mini PCI express card other than the airport card... I'd be ecstatic. If you manage to track one down let me know.
  4. I was just at best buy, I should have tried it out on the macbooks/mbp while i was there.
  5. I'm running a completely patched ibook g4 and this still doesn't work. Looks like another reason I should be upgrading to a macbook pro. *sigh*
  6. I ended up picking up a usb dongle last summer. It worked. But, was super annoying. lol
  7. This does not work for the wireless card. ibook-g4:~ apex81$ sudo ifconfig en1 ether de:ad:be:ef:ca:fe Password:************** ibook-g4:~ apex81$ ifconfig en1 en1: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet6 fe80::211:24ff:fe26:8134%en1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x5 inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast ether 11:11:11:11:11:11 media: autoselect status: active supported media: autoselect Apple does not let you change the wireless card MAC's with their proprietary drivers. Talk about a PAIN IN THE ASS. The real kick in the nuts is that you can change the MAC of the ethernet device (en0 usually) using the aforementioned command.
  8. I did some research on this last summer and found that for some reason apple has locked down the drivers for the wireless card. This is why 'ifconfig en1 ether aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff`doesn't work. From what I can remember their is apparently a couple third party wireless drivers floating around on the internet that will allow you to change the MAC address, but I found that it was much simpler to use the software mentioned above, spoofMAC being the best imo. I was trying to create an apple script to connect to paid wifi access for free... but ultimately it didn't work because I couldn't change the MAC address. On a side note, spoofMAC isn't scriptable... just in case you were looking for that type of functionality.
  9. I too own a mac and would like to both contribute, and read a mac oriented hacking mag.
  10. I don't post very often... But I had to say... OMFG I own that calculator... http://www.bergoiata.org/fe/tech/16c3q.jpg
  11. I rarely post on these forms, but I do read them quite often. I have learned quite a bit from you on hacktv and binrev radio, and i'm greatful for all the work you have done. Thanks to your efforts my love for techonolgy was reignighted. I'd also like to give a <sarcasm> Huge Shout Out! </sarcasm> to the asshats who are responsible for this. Thanks again Stank for everything, Apex81
  12. on the note of samInside, I ran it on my pc for the first time and see seven users come up, of which 4 are unknown to me. They Include: HelpAssistant IUSR_APEX-DESKTOP (apex-desktop being the name of my pc) IWAM_APEX-DESKTOP SUPPORT_338945a0 Anyone have any idea what these are? Why they are on my machine? And are they installed on all XP machines? Some insight would be really helpful. Thanks.
