Well that was a real nasty experience…beeing a while without access to internet. You could call me an addict but oh well. Anyways I had some moving in between houses issues and a little problem with my ISP. I’m on temp internet now with some weird usb stick which is treating me pretty good until now. Anyways I’ll get back to posting some random stuff as usual. It feels good to finally have access to internet again.
This is just my little hate/love affair with python. This post will be a bit chaotic but ohwell…
Well when I first read about python my inmediate reaction was: HATE HATE HATE. This reaction was only triggered because of one reason: indentation. This kept going on for a while until I finally decided to try python out and create my opinion based on using the language instead of prejudices. I’ll explain what the word ‘hidden’ does in the title of this blog posting later on.
Well truecrypt 6.1 has been released and I thought it was time to update my machine. Since I’ve started using truecrypt I’ve kept screenshot of the benchmarks so for the ones who love numbers here they are. I’ve also made volume headers backup and disabled the boot message that states the machine is encrypted with truecrypt. I have to admit I’m totally fond of truecrypt it’s easy and good for free. Oh and YES I’ve made volume header backups and rescuedisks, you never know when bad luck strikes.
I love it. It was like so easy to get my internet connection going on my ubuntu through my mobile phone. All I had to do was connect the mobile to my laptop using a mini-usb cable. Ubuntu then automatically recognized it all and all I had to do was choose my provider and it WORKED!!!
I’ve installed ubuntu 8.10 on my laptop just to see how it goes and well I have to admit it works pretty good. Until now I haven’t had any problem with it.
Well so much for my ubuntu experience, I’ll keep you posted because somehow I always screw up when I use linux. So I really hope I hang on to it this time.
Ah man…beeing busy really ***** (sucks). I don’t like censoring words….
Lucky for me this time it was pleasure busy. I’ve been away for a few days in one of the cities famous for their diamonds. It was really impressive to see a whole street with only juwel stores. The funny thing was that the local building for diamond exchange seemed to have better security measure then the bank that was next door. Just to clarify things up , I wasn’t there for the diamonds. Those are boring. They just shine and well shine. So what’s next? I’ve been thinking about posting my todo list but then again…if I do that people will actually see that I never get it done.
So I’ll just post stuff when it’s done.
For the moment beeing I’m concentrating on the latest burp release which is comming up in december I can’t wait till I can hit the download button. Got some nice ideas to expand the current poc’s I’ve written and hopefully abuse the new and improved API.
If you get the impression this was written in a hurry , yes it was. I’m tired and want to sleep but I also wanted to write so this is the end result, I’m now going to sleep.
Well like the title says you can’t always dedicate your time to technical things. I’ve always loved art…it didn’t really mather to me what kind of art it was as long as it really speaks to me.
So lateley I’ve encountered a art form I really like. Abstract expressionism. It’s wonderfull you can imagine all you want there is nothing defined and it really speaks to me.
I’ve encountered an artist who’s art I really like. It’s so full of color and so different. The only down part is , that her page is only in spanish for the moment beeing, I’ve emailed her and the english portion of her website will be published soon. I’ve added a non-technical categorie in the links section so you can all visit her page and enjoy her art just like I did.
Well my old website used to have a single page dedicated to affiliates and people I have met during my online time spent on irc, forums, etc…
On this blog I will maintain a list of friends. So just contact me to update this list. Please don’t be offended if your website isn’t on thislist I probably forgot some…still trying to sort things out.
Welcome to my new blog.
Like some of you know I used to have my own website http://www.kd-team.com. Unfortunatly life goes on and everyone heads for a new direction in life. Because of time restraints and the work it took to manage the website we decided to cancel it.
Most of the old content will be published here, just for archive purposes. The rest of the posts will be about daily security problems I struggle with or just random ideas I get in the middle of the night.
I’m off for some sleep, I’ll continue later on.
