  1. "Deflowered". ooerr :)
  2. Well it's arrived from that site and working nicely. Also didn't need any converter like the other big omi-direction tube one I've got. Thanks for the help and suggestion :)
  3. Cool. Might give them a try. Have you used them before? I normally only like using sites I trust but they appear to have a paypal option so should be safer.
  4. Would the 3db extra make a difference? Can't seem to find that based in the UK. I'd rather get one from the UK than shipped from the US.
  5. Just wondering if this would be any good for my Alfa Awus036h? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Solwise-2-4GHz-15db-Yagi-Antenna/dp/B001LDZLMW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335922575&sr=8-1 I have a long pole omi antenna but signal isn't that great (guess probably would be if I bothered to put it on the roof). But just wondered if this Yagi would be good. I assume I'd also need this?

  6. Old thread but still. R-Studio is what I used. Saved me big time when my NAS drive decided to wipe both drives.
  7. I think the point is, most of the stuff Apple release, he NEVER invented. Steve Wozniak made the first Apple computers, Steve Jobs was just the marketing man that saw something he could market and make money off. In the early days he ripped Steve Wozniak off in a business deal. Agreed to give Steve W half of the contract, which was about $5000 in the end. Steve W got about $250, because Steve Jobs said the deal came to $500, so lied to his mate. Never like him when he was alive, so not going to suddenly respect him now he's dead. I wonder if the same praise will be given to Steve Wozniak when he dies. I bet not, despite him being a better and nicer person.
  8. Not an exciting or funny story at all but thought it a bit interesting, maybe cause I knew to security :) Was on Game's wifi the other day (store in UK) because it was open and free. Then decided to pop onto the router page to see if they'd secured stuff properly. Was nice to see DD-WRT was on the router. Cool. So looks like someone in that store knows what they are doing. Or do some routers come with DD-WRT now?

    I have recently purchased BackTrack 4: Assuring Security by Penetration Testing by Shakeel Ali and Tedi Hariyanto looks like a good read and good way to learn BackTrack. Also have BackTrack 5 Wireless Penetration Testing Beginner's Guide by Vivek Ramachandran of Security Tube. And that looks just as good and simple to follow. The 2nd book isn't really for learning BackTrack but it's helping me out with a few things in BackTrack so it's a bonus. And I like Security Tube so good way to support Vivek.
  10. Was never a fan of the man and here's a balanced article on why http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/technology-obituaries/8810037/Steve-Jobs-obituary.html#disqus_thread Only good thing to come out of Apple is Steve Wozniak. He seems genuinely nice.
  11. I might of mentioned a while back about getting ripped off or an attempted rip off (I got my money back via PayPal) on Ebay with a Nokia E71. But I recovered data on it and was able to recover images and 3 phone numbers. But just brought a N900 and haven't been ripped off. Was a decent guy it seems but, it's in my nature, I WILL try and recovery every time. I've found his porn clip collection :) nice. I haven't warned him about that, I don't want to embarrass but told him if he sells any more phones he needs to secure wipe them. As he sent it to and had forgotten to remove all his contacts, phone numbers and e-mail address'. I've told him it's fine, they're safe as I'll secure delete it. So have you found anything interesting when doing data recovery?

    ? more info would be helpful.
  13. So been using the Alfa for some time just fine. Messing about changing the MAC to something easier to type. In Windows I used/use MacMakeUp to change the MAC. Has been fine and the MAC stuck to what I changed it to, even after reboots etc. But yesterday I reset trying to change it to something else. But it just won't seem to stick. The new Powershell script version of MacMakeUp says it's changed the MAC but it tells me Windows still thinks it's the original MAC. I try in XP, same issue. I try in Backtrack 5 and MAC seems to change and BT see it as the changed MAC. But Windows seems to refuse to see the change. Anyone else run into this issue with the Alfa before?
  14. I shouldn't of come into this thread. I've now just paid £150 for a second hand Nokia N900 :) sadly, the main selling point was it can do RDP or VNC :)
  15. Sounds like the convector I posted images of in that other thread. Crazy thing is, I brought the long tube aerial in the other thread but now can't remember what online store that was from.
