  1. I usually hate those captcha requirements, but this latest bit of bafoonery gives a good reason why they are necessary. Imagine sending spam like that to a message board full of hackers!
  2. Kubuntu 9.10 Also running Windows XP Pro "Bitch Box" using Virtual Box. The image is so wide because I'm using two monitors. Here's my workstation
  3. SWEET JEBUS! Is that an actual Amiga?
  4. I'm not using their VPS. I'm using the Deluxe web hosting service for my personal web site. So far, I'm not very impressed. The service seems ok, but their customer service sucks. It takes several days (if not a week) to get answers to our support questions. When you do get an answer it's a generic nonsense answer that you can tell someone just copied and pasted out of the FAQ, and it doesn't answer the question you asked in the first place. The only reason I'm sticking with them for now is I needed somewhere to host the Windows based web applications I'm working on so I can demo them for my clients.
  5. PHP is pretty good. I created a web site for a local community band in PHP using MySQL on the back end. It's a powerful enough language, and best of all, it's free. MySql is definitely an excellent choice for your backend database. It too is free. It's super fast, secure, and multi-user. PHP and MySql can be hosted on Windows and Linux web servers, and Linux web hosting is pretty cheap.

  8. There's no big trick to being a hacker. We're just people who have a natural understanding, and curiosity, of how things work. We get the most out of a thing by learning everything we can about it. Use it to it's full extent, and try to make it better than it's original design. Sometimes we cause a little mischief, just to let the world know we're here. There are those of us who cause damage, and steel in the name of hacking. We look down on them. Because they make us all look bad. If you're serious about learning more about hacking. Go to Eric S. Raymond's web site. He's an author, one of the original hackers, and a heck of a nice guy. I met him at last years Penguicon.
