NAND Gate Computer
Posted: Wintermute @ Fri Mar 29, 2013 8:00 am

I love all the action going on in homebrew computing. Kinda reminds me of the early days. And here’s another one, using nothing by NAND gates.

Link changes *after* user clicks on it!

One of the most common pieces of advise we give is to be careful what you click on, right? Apparently, someone made that piece of advise moot, as there is a way to change the link *after* it’s been clicked.

Remember the IBM M keyboard?
Posted: Wintermute @ Mon Mar 25, 2013 8:00 am

Anyone else have fond memories of the IBM M keyboard? Apparently, there’s a company that makes keyboards with the IBM M keyboard feel. Personally, I’ll just keep trolling the thrift shops for an actual IBM M keyboard and save the cash 😉

Going Google-free
Posted: Wintermute @ Sat Mar 23, 2013 12:26 pm

So, Google has decided to kill off it’s popular RSS tool, Google Reader. As a result, I’ve decide to stop using Google services, as I cannot trust them to be around when I need them. As such, I’ve stopped using Google Analytics for the blog, and only use what’s built into the Jetpack plugin. Also, if you’re reading this via Feedburner, please subscribe directly, as I will eventually kill the Feedburner feeds completely. I’ll also be pulling the Adsense ads from the site as well. Not sure what I’ll replace them with yet. These changes are similar to the changes Bruce Schneier made to his blog (though he did it for privacy reasons, which is also a motivating factor here as well).

On the non-blog side of things, I will probably go back to using Bloglines for my RSS feed reading, though it’s changed drastically since the last time I used it. I’m also using DuckDuckGo as my primary search engine. I haven’t decided on e-mail yet, as Gmail offers the most convenience. I may go back to hosting it myself, though, and using one of the many wonderful open-source webmail interfaces for it. The other Google services? I can live without or find other replacements that are more privacy-respecting than Google is.

Weevely is a stealth PHP web shell that provides a telnet-like console. It is an essential tool for web application post exploitation, and can be used as stealth backdoor or as a web shell to manage legit web accounts, even free hosted ones.
