  1. I can boot from an external Firewire drive. Not a problem. I was thinking it would be nice to be able to take a Linux drive and plug it into my other computers that have Firewire, so I could boot up into Linux on any of the machines. But, I sorta answered my own question this morning by slapping myself in the forehead and letting out a deafening "DOH!". Since I use Macs, I've been playing with a couple of PPC-based distros, namely Yellow Dog (basically Red Hat 7.2 ported to run on a PPC processor), and Mandrake 8.2 PPC, which I installed this weekend. Both run well, but I thought it would be nice to play with some straight Wintel-based Linux....but I realy don't want to buy *another* computer. Then the light bulb came on and I remembered that I have Virtual PC on all my machines. Sooooo.....I downloaded the ISOs for Red Hat 8.0, burned the CDs, set up a new virtual machine in VPC and installed RH 8.0. It runs really well and it'll be fun to play around with. The cool thing is that I can copy the Linux disc image to any of my other machines with Virtual PC. I can tinker and experiment with Linux all I want, and if I screw up and hose something, I just have to recopy the disc image into Virtual PC from a backup copy. But it's good to hear that at least some Linux distros do support Firewire, cuz that opens alot of other possibilities.
  2. Are there any Linux distros that would support booting from an external Firewire drive?
  3. Here's one I just did. Let me know if the animation is too fast or two slow and I can change it.
  4. I think it says "All your privacy are belong to us."
  5. I was going to suggest you go to linuxnewbie.org. but I see they are now called JustLinux and have totally redone the site. I've found alot there (the old site) that has helped me in what little Linux I've played with. It looks as if just about all the stuff from LinuxNewbie is still there. It might be worth a look.
  6. Ahhhh....THAT's where I heard it. So, I wasn't completely insane afetr all....
  7. The link to the AP story on the 2600 site says "The 11-year-old sixth-grader at St. Lucie West Middle was arrested Monday on a second-degree felony charge of offense against intellectual property." IMHO, the kid's grades are his own intellectual property. They're HIS grades, right? How more "intellectual" can you get? Can some one explain how the fuck it can be a felony to change or alter your OWN intellectual property? Gawd forbid he actually did something malicious. He'd probably be up for the death penalty. I hope to hell that the parents in that school district are smart enough to see the insanity af all this. This sort of thing sets a BAD precedent.....
  8. Thanks for the links. Yep...the Gateway call on ugo.com was the one I heard. I thought it was part of whatever show I was listening to on Rant Radio, but I must not have been paying attention.....wouldnt be the first time. Guess I can't play UT and listen to the radio at the same time. DOH! Thanks for info.
  9. I recall hearing an ep sometime back in the fall where there was a phone call made to some software company using the Arnold Schwarzenegger Soundboard. I laughed my ass off and would love to hear it again. Problem is, I can't rememebr if it was RFA or Hackermind. I've listned to all the RFA episodes and havent heard it. Well, I'm FAIRLY sure I've listed to them all and I haven't gotten to the older eps in the archive yet, but I don't think it was that far back. Guess I'll have to listen to them all again. Darn the luck. Anyway, can anyone help me track this down? I've listend to the eps on the Hackermind site but they have a big void (nothing posted) from during the time I think I heard it. BTW, congrats on the big FIVE-OH.
  10. Hmmm....I hadn't though of that. Today I didn't have time to go into the building, but just tried to get on from my car in the parking lot since I was in the area. But, I parked to as close as I could get to the room I was in on Monday night when I got on the first time. I'll hazard to guess I was only 75 feet or so from the room, as it's on the outside portion of that wing of the building right next to the parking lot....I could see inside the window from my car. But that might have been just far enough to put me on another WAP. But if not, and they did change the PW, I guess I can't take it personally *sniff* They just did the right thing......but DAMN them for doing the right thing!
  11. SHIT...I just remembered....I don't think he actually changed his grades...I *think* he forged his parent(s) signature, not wanting to show then the report card. But still, the premise is the same.
  12. I went back to the college this morning, and have to say I'm impressed. They changed the password. Go fig. Next time we have a comittee meeting I'll have to see about trying the wired network. I think my Ethernet port will be "fixed" by then.
  13. A felony? Fer chrissake. These people are fucking insane. Back (way back, before the Atari 2600 even came out ) when I was in 5th or 6th we had to take our reports cards home, have our parents sign them and give them back to the teacher the next day. Don't recall the details (can't even remember what I had for lunch yesterday, anymore) but some kid in my class got caught changing his grade(s) in some form or another. They used something called a "pen" to fill out report cards back then. Anyway, from what I remember this kid's punishment was that he got sent to the principles office, got stuck staying after school for a week or so, and I *think* he ended up going to some sort of counseling. I agree, if there was no computer invloved it wouldn't have been considerd a "crime" and we'd have never even heard about it. He'd have gotten the "That's wrong, don't do it again" speech , and that would have been the end of it. This is someones way of making an "example" out of this kid, and it's fucking sickening.
  14. This might shed some light: I did a Google search for Robert Stank. (I have way too much free time today) Here's the first listing: http://www.seancohen.com/projects/dan/stories/30.htm I lopped off the last sub-direcotry from the URL and ended up here: http://www.seancohen.com/projects/dan/ It's a tribute site for a guy that died in the WTC attack. Robert Stank wrote two of the tribute articles on the site.
  15. Interesting. Hopefully I'll get a chance to get back over thre this week to explore around a bit. I'd aslo like to try and get onto their wired network and see if it's set up the same, but as you said, it depends on the setup.
