:: Hacking ::

I've been awake for two days learning stuff. I'm so happy I got together with the right people, and I'm learning more stuff in a couple of days than I ever learnt in my life. The topics of learnt/searched for the last two days were:

- shadow passwords: manually creating and decrypting
- SSHd security related stuff
- Network programming (Doc: Beej's Network Programming)
- protocols with things, other than computers, via C programming

:: eBeatrix ::

The system can already look for another gateway, in case the one predefined is down. It can go through a list of gateways stated on a file.

The script to decode the emails to real actions is being recoded using C code. It's almost done :)

The project is now "co-sponsored" also by another "company", and will be released by two different sides, with two different codes, as I'm now developing it for two differente purposes. Details soon.

:: Casual Life Causes ::

There is a group of people that will start to get together frequently for computer investigation, at my house. It will start next sunday. As so, the network in my house is being re-thought and now there is an independent server/firewall, which is not used by noone. Port forwarding is one of the next things to study. I already got the pdf's and the apps :)

:: Music ::

Pink Floyd - The Wall
Velvet Underground & Nico - The Banana Album
