  1. DVD::RIP is an excellent linux tool for the job, I use it all the time, has good quality and works in a decent amount of time.
  2. I was wondering if anyone has heard of the X700 card working? I have found reports of the X800 working fine but I have been having a good deal of trouble getting my X700 going. The configuration util does not seem to detect my card (PCI-E) version, thought I'd ask here in case somebody knew.
  3. Noir, I am not disagreeing with the writing of random values creating security. In fact writing random values repeatedly greatly hinders recovery. Magnets write all the data to zero though, which isn't very random. Sorry if I was not being clear.
  4. Once you read through Learning Perl I would go with Programming Perl, I've heard great things about the book, but never felt the need to read it personally.
  5. If you read the thread you will notice: Yes it sets all values to zero, but there are still traces of all the data beneath the zeros. Degaussing a hard drive is the equivalent to making a picture a bit darker. If you look at it the right way you still see the picture, same for your hard drive data. Degaussing is not a safe method of data destruction. Done.
  6. The code for my bots is on my site: Spidering bot: http://mysite.verizon.net/vze7t8ho/leet/main.txt IRC to AIM and back bots: http://mysite.verizon.net/vze7t8ho/leet/aimirc.txt http://mysite.verizon.net/vze7t8ho/leet/ircaim.txt Email me if you have any questions about Net::AIM.
  7. That is one of the coolest applications of web control I have personally experienced.
  8. Ok it is uploaded, but the host is a little flaky so if it says error 403 or 404 just wait a few minutes and try again, best I could do: http://mysite.verizon.net/vze7t8ho/backslash/gentooetc.tar
  9. I'm about to leave my house, but I'll be back at around eight and upload the tar and send you a link.
  10. OMFG That Permission stack thing would have been useful information. I had to reformat my whole computer, with that being one of the reasons. Whatever though, I'm much happier with my current Gentoo/XP set up.
  11. Mapquest business search is also useful for that, I wrote a spider for that site, I think the code is in the forums somewhere.
  12. I finally gave up on it and formatted my entire hard drive. I reinstalled Windows and just tricked all of my programs into working with some registry magic. At least now I have a good partition table and I gave most of my space to Gentoo. Sorry I forgot to edit that I gave up on it. Thanks for the offer to help.
  13. Just the titles "Educational Efforts" and the "Parent's Help" makes me want to die.
  14. That can't be real. Especially with that whole "This site hosted by 100% solar energy" sign.
  15. Keep in mind robots.txt isn't a mandatory regulation, sure it is rude as hell not to follow but it isn't quite illegal.
