  1. Thank you for this, I didn't get a chance to play over the weekend (too much DIY to do around the house!). Much appreciated, and good info :)
  2. Thief is a PC game. Not sure if it was ever ported to any other platforms, but it was definitely designed for PC originally. Completed 'Life of the Party' last night. God, I love that mission.
  3. Hi all, Any other players of Thief 1 (Dark Project) and Thief 2 (Metal Age)? I'm playing them both through for the third time in my life now. My God, what amazing games, even over 10 years later! I haven't yet played Thief 2X or any Fan Missions, going to give those a good go after completing The Metal Age again. My favourite games of all time, by far.
  4. Thanks. I'm looking to not have the wireless on at all, until I require it. At the moment, the Alfa external Wi-Fi card comes on as the Raspberry Pi boots up, and stays on until it shuts down. I don't use the Wi-Fi card all of the time, so rather than a 'low-power' mode when it's not in use, I'd like to literally just switch it off / supply it no power at all. Basically, the equivalent of unplugging the Wi-Fi card from the USB slot, but without having to physically unplug it. To give a better overview; This is for a home automation project where the Raspberry Pi will be switched on pretty much all of the time, but I don't want the external Wi-Fi antenna to be kicking out a signal all of the time, as it's a quite high powered antenna and I'd rather not sit in the radiation 24/7, no matter how small. For peace of mind, I'd rather just switch it off when not in use. Plus it also does use a battery back up, and if it's in this mode, the battery will be drained pretty quickly.
  5. Thanks, I'll have a play this evening.
  6. Hi all, I am creating some shell scripts that occasionally need to use an external Alfa WiFi card, but not all of the time. Rather than leaving the Alfa card enabled constantly, I would like the script to bring the card online when it is required, and switch it back off when it is not. I have read various methods to do this online, but none seem definitive, so I would like to ask which method I should use. So far, I have seen suggestions of; Using WLAN# up and WLAN# down Disabling USB ports using Hub-CTRL Using hardware add-ons This or this (unknown what is being done here) Even people saying it's not possible. What would you suggest? Has anyone else had any luck with switching off and back on an Alfa Wifi Card from a Linux command line/script? I haven't yet played around, as I'm not at home, but I don't want to waste my time trying a method that won't work as well as something else. Thank you.
  7. I hate to be cliché again, as I always mention them, but a Raspberry Pi can do all of this.. A little extra leg work in the beginning, but you can have a bridged AP, router and a Ethernet AP in one, as well as the capability for so much more. Add a battery pack of choice and it's good to go. Bonuses are that it'll cost you $40 for the Pi and $30 for a good battery pack. And you can also use it as anything else you want at a pinch, just swap out the scripts / SD card. Not for everyone, but personally, home-built is the best as you can get exactly what you want. Plus, it's satisfying doing DIY. https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/onion-pi-tor-proxy/ https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-wifi-bridge/ http://www.raspberryconnect.com/network/item/315-rpi3-auto-wifi-hotspot-if-no-internet
  8. You win at being a dad.
  9. Happy Father's Day!
  10. No one? Surely there must be some Unix admins out there!
  11. 203D3536BD62AD33AC70B7EA3D4F5E10B6D52EBD0CB7582841A053AEBB7186A3 Good memory, and tricks on creating long, but memorable passwords [1] [2]. People should take the time to learn their passwords, the same they do with phone numbers, addresses, exams etc. I don't write mine down, but one could also argue pen and paper is safer than storing your password on a computer [3] [4] [5] [6] , even if it's hashed. Pen and paper has an air gap, password managers do not. I'd trust my password on some paper more than I'd trust someone else's program.
  12. My 2 cents - I don't use password managers. I've never seen the appeal of having passwords either stored locally on a computer (whether encrypted or not), or under someone else's control using their application or service. No thanks. The best manager? The human brain. Secure as it can get.
  13. Technically it would be the best operating system for after the World ends, too. Less power required, smaller footprint and can be installed on almost any device Not sure pentester would be a viable career though!
  14. I think you're misunderstanding how they check your phone/laptop at the airport. Generally, they won't just boot it up and look around it using a GUI. They'll plug it in to a computer that will pull all of the data from it, including files located in 'another launcher'. Having multiple launchers will not hide the data.
  15. The 'home page' to the dark web? It's not a single website or location on the web. The term 'Dark Web' is simply coined for any websites that aren't indexed by any service, such as Google. It's just websites, like anywhere else, except you can't access them through the usual 'public' search engines.
