  1. Personally, I love this Orwell book: http://www.amazon.com/Keep-Aspidistra-Flyi...6989&sr=8-2 Anyway, do you happen to have a link?
  2. "I hawxed your wireless networks for the lulz"
  3. ... i typed this on purpose the other night before i reformatted, all my shell commands were deleted So when you make an alias the command gets executed? Anyway, that doesn't delete all the files on the harddrive. It skips a few, because they are being used.
  4. OH NO! DIFFERENT FETISH OPPOSES MY DEEP MORAL VALUES! Seriously, how is that any different from the KKK burning blacks, gays, etc. alive, for being black/gay/etc. According to the Greek Philosophers, we should be called philosophers, not hackers, if you are going to refer to the "quest for knowledge" type of idea. And if it matters that much, call yourself a "security enthusiast," not a hacker. Don't even mention the word hacker.
  5. Because they obviously only carry one bullet.
  6. I am running Slackware 12.0, and whenever I boot up my system, I can see output that is related to other daemons being loaded (OpenSSH for example), and would like to know how to load my wireless card daemon at boot-time, as I have to run "ipw3459d" after I log in to connect to the internet (because it's just soooo much work). Anyway, are there any files that I should edit to do this, or what?

  9. doc.bughunter.net This site is alright, it doesn't have a huge collection of papers (when compared to some other sites), but it does have a good amount on buffer overflows.
  10. It would have been better if you just said that they forget.
  11. Just about every programming language is like that... Go with either C or Ruby. I decided to start learning C, because its cross-platform and its seems pretty stable. And I learning off of http://www.cprogramming.com/. Does anyone know of a good C Compiler at all? I personally don't like those tutorials on that site. I recommend getting this book: http://cm.bell-labs.com/cm/cs/cbook/

  13. It's only write protected. If you can access it, it's unsecure.
  14. Unless you *need* the screen, don't go with a laptop like that. You have a desktop already (or so I understand), so why would you get a large screen?
