  1. edit the rc file? like ~/.cshrc just put at the end: bash to have a more modern shell. I had a shell on a BSD machine that kept giving me csh and that's what I did. Then you'd have to type exit twice. I talked to the administrator about it and now I'm a proud user of zsh. Yeah! Fucking shell party! LOL! who types "exit" when they leave a shell?? CTRL+D FTG!
  2. Which Wintermute does cool Wii/DS hacking? Cos i want your autograph <3
  3. Yeah seriously, that host sucks.
  4. i felt shitty all day about that post, then i read that he IS alive! That seriously must be intense to be that successful StankDawg, if you ever need any more help, you can scream at me. I'll try to help.
  5. i don't think i was ready to read that this morning. wholy shit. :( rest in peace str0ke <333333333333333333 i hope his family is okay.
  6. If i were to start over I would have just explored more than read. I read a lot and simply forgot most of it since it dealt with a lot of acronyms and the like. By exploring, I mean calling a LOT of numbers and just finding cool things. If you do it right and fully absorb yourself in what you have a passion for you will learn most of the technical stuff along the way. I don't think there is an eBook about Phreaking, unless it is very dated. You can also learn by simulation.. like the Project MF community. They used Linux to simulate old phone technology that allowed you to "phreak" from your home phone line with blue-boxes, like back in the tim of old. You can also do some phreaking right from your Nintendo DS (if you have one) by learning about payphone phreaking - I would also spend more time listening to the Phone Trips here: They are good quality and the narrator tells you exactly how the old phone system worked along the way. For newer stuff, i recommend maybe reading O'reilly books on VoIP or Asterisk (the software PBX (answering machine / switching system)). Maybe even learn more about the languages used while designing those applications so you can hack them even further. Try finding local hacker-spaces in your area too, or 2600 meetings where you can mingle and talk with people who are also into phreaking. That's where I'd start.
  7. hey buddy, To install the theme, simply click on the menu at the top on "System" then click "Appearance." Now a new window will open up and you can drag your new theme file into that window and it will install by itself. If you get an error, it could be that the theme was packed twice (I have seen that happen before). To get transparent windows, you need to click the extras tab in the appearance windows and choose it. You may need to install the video driver for your particular system to use extra effects. open a terminal and type sudo lspci and look for the exact model of your video adapter there. If it's NVIDIA you can install nvidia drivers right from their website, or by allowing restricted drivers to install, or add the multiverse in your apt repositories. open up a terminal and type sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list and remove any pound signs you may have there at the beginning of the lines. Then run: apt-get update while you are connected to the internet. Then you can run: apt-cache search <string> where "<string>" is the word "nvidia" or "ati" etc. I have never used an ATI card before so, I am not sure how to install drivers for them. You can get cool transparent effects in terminal by editting your "profile" and clicking the "background" tab and then choosing solid color and "enable transparency" I think.. I am doing this from memory. Hope that helps a bit. Compiz is awesome, absolutely awesome, and there are tutorial on the Ubuntu forums on exactly how to install it and get it working etc: If you have any further questions, i might suggest you ask them on their own forums, they are quite knowledgeable about the topic you seek! ~Trev
  8. Yes, I deal with foreign people who say "rooting" so I just figured she must have been foreign.. I absolutely LOVE her voice, and hearing all of those words like that in a single song makes my heart warm.
  9. LMFAO okay, so do they know what a barcode scanner even does?? it reads input from lines, like 7bits each er something right? Im talking about the traditional barcodes.. whatever. it takes in the lines which are translated by the scanner into ASCII and sent out through the USB cable to the system with a trailing newline. you can go to the WASP website and make a free barcode out of any words you want to, thus using pieces of paper with printed barcodes [use a printer at a library] and a $70 scanner for a keyboard. Is that why you said that? cos neither of them said to do that? Uhh thanks, but I think we know what barcodes are. That wasn't directed to you at all.. can you not read as well? You quoted me and wrote a reply beneath, that generally signifies a direct response I thought that you were tacitly implying that they [others in posts with barcodes as avatars] were missing an obvious solution [that was in their avatars]. See how I say "so do 'they' know what a barcode" and "Is that why you said that? cos neither of them said to do that?" It wasn't directed towards you at all - your comment could have been taken in a different way, that's all.
  10. 'There have been a lot of good updates lately with security based applications (Nikto, Metasploit, Kismet, etc), i am quite stoked!! thanks for the heads up!
  11. That's AWESOME!! I love the poster and the way you got it is incredible - i loled at your plight though. you should frame it. i waltzed into a hotel here in pittsburgh not mentioning names, and started going into rooms and such and ended up in a conference room that had just let out of meeting i guess, papers and pencils and cups where still there, and I found this on a huge pad in the front of the room: and i took it and just walked out of the building, no one said a word to me except the guy who help the door open when i left the building! I framed it, just cos of my troubles. You should too!
  12. This one i keep close to my heart <3333333333333 I swear i could listen to that song anytime to calm me down... You guys ever hear that one? I have a nice AAC version that was online on their site (before it became a 404) if anyone wants it. ~Trev
  13. Ndiswrapper? awe man, Ndiswrapper is lame with BT4. BT4 is an awesome distro for wireless hacking! BCM can now inject but you need to patch and recompile te kernel, which i think Off-Sec actually did. You should run lspci and get the actual information of the Atheros card. and use modprobe -l to list the driver modules available. then install it with modprobe as well. Finding out stuff in manpages ias just discouraging to people new to Linux so i never refer them to it, if you do a simple Google search you can find out more about Linux and Wireless (but you said you figured it out already). ~trev
  14. all you would need to do is determine what information that they use to verify that you are an instructor, and social engineer them into giving you an account... You could try brute force stuff too, like i saw in the first second of being there that the server responded with a unique error page saying "directory listing denied" when it actually hit a directory on the server and not when it was a 404. Try some web tools like Nikto if you really DO have permission to test their security.
  15. Hi Silence! Hey Trevelyn, I think I remember hearing about you PLA Radio a few years back. In fact, I think I still have some of you music on my iPod... unless that's a different Trevelyn? No that's me, I have made a lot more on my website by now.. I like your blog <3
