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.
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.
Well I'm back to that thing called school so I'll probably end up not doing as much coding as I do. Although, I did off school early today (camping) so I might work on something. Anywho, I'm off to mess with my EeePC (Which is running BT3) now, and crack the WEP here...again...for fun.
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)....
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.
Anyone use their Nintendo WiFi [USB] connector?
Neither did I, until I found out that I can use it on my Windows machine. Never the less, I inserted it into my Eee (running Backtrack 3) and it worked, instantly. Now, I made my own Pepsi can dish and a LEGO tower. EDIT: I finally booted into Fluxbox :D
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.
I'm upgrading Drupal to 6.4 right now, so I might lose some blog posts and other content...
Upgrading was easy, and for once I didn't lose any data.
