Xbox 360 Sent (Sending!)

Well I just got off the phone with Xbox 360 support. I got all the info and I'm sending my 360 out probably tomorrow (Yes, I have the Red Ring of DEATH!). Apparently I'll be getting it back in a couple days, hopefully not too long. I guess they're putting in the Opus mobo.

Heh, I just Spore [the game] came out on the 2nd so uhhh let's say I'm 'getting it' and 'numerous other movies' ahem.

Back to Hell (week 2)

Well its the 2nd week of school...and it still sucks. Same as usual I guess, its school. All I can say is that school sucks. So does homework.

On the geek side, coding has been at a stand still. Computing hasn't though. I downloaded about 20 distro's yesterday, mostly firewall ones. Since I have 2 [wait, more like 3] unused computers (I use 5 regularly), I felt like transforming one into a firewall/router.

Anywho, I feel like chatting on IRC, so off I go.

Life with eeeXubuntu.

Well, I finally chose eeeXubuntu. Install was quick and configuring was even easier. After some kernel updates, I did have to recompile the madwifi drivers. I also have to find and compile Ralink drivers, since without them, the other dongle that I use doesn't have monitor mode enabled.
Its pretty minimal right now, I just updated and installed some security/penetration programs.
Anywho, I shall be off (I'm quite tired too)....

New OS?

Well, I've been debating over if I should install a different OS on my Asus EEE. I've tried Ubuntu Eee, Xandros and now Backtrack. I love Ubuntu, so I might try eeeXubuntu, the Xubuntu customized Eee version. The default Xandros is decent, but....no. Backtrack is really cool, but its based on Slackware, so its not exactly user friendly. So I think in the end, I might install Xubuntu, and have Backtrack on a USB jump drive or SD card.
Results to come.

Cracking WPA...well sorta.

I've managed to crack WPA, sorta. Problem is, the passkey must be in the dictionary, which might be a problem. Since some people could use made up words or names.
Nevertheless, I'm still able to crack WEP and WPA [on my eee]. I even get a strong signal from AP's, like yesterday when a AP was a minimum of 300m away!
I'm just blown away from what my Eee can do. I had Xandros in it for a while, then Ubuntu Eee and now Backtrack. It's like my own "offensive security" station, on the go. The only thing I am disappointed in is the battery. Mine, has a 4400mAH battery, but at the time when I got it, I thought it had a 5200mAH battery; The difference is about 30 minutes. If I turn down the brightness, turn off the volume, It lasts for about 2 and a half hours, or so.
