  1. Funny; title says parent, grammar says 13-yo.
  2. Is this packet type often used for MITM attacks? I may not have a good understanding of the protocol, but what stops someone sending one of these to anybody they want, then redirecting traffic to somewhere they can sniff?
  3. There is this presentation which does essentially that. Unfortunately it seems whoever the presenter is he hasn't gone anywhere with the technology. It's an interesting concept and I'm absolutely sure commonly used by people that aren't mentioning it to anyone. Probably healthy to leave your phone in aeroplane mode whenever you can.

  5. > Under the new rules, cars will also be fitted with compulsory data recorders, or "black boxes". I just don't see this playing out as a system that automatically controls your car's speed. No government wants that. There is just too much revenue collected from speeding fines. Instead, a government wants to be able to record where you were at every moment in a completely opaque black box. Then, whenever you come in for a service just download your driving habits and fine you for each time you sped. Much easier than installing cameras all over the place and only getting you on rare occa
  6. Hi, The best way to get a response if you need help is to ask specific questions regarding the particular issue you have.
  7. Sorry if this seems too critical or is too much, but a few quick points: Personally, I wouldn't use "from module import *" if I'm just using a single class, once. If anything, you can "from irc import IRC", which would work in just the same way. In fact, what I would do is "import irc" then use "irc.IRC()". Having those namespaces can be useful when you are using more modules. I noticed a lot of try: except:. You probably can do this in a better way. I haven't looked too closely, but it looks like your error is an index error for a list/tuple. I'm not sure what your algorithm is, b
  8. I haven't seen this yet. The trailer is here. From what I can see it looks a little cheesy. Mac is a cliché action hero whereas RDA was more humble and I think it worked better. That's why using his smarts made sense and fit into the character. Will have to wait and see after I have watched it though.
  9. Has anyone heard of this show? The promotional page here is also kind of cool, IMO. I think it fits with the usual audience here.
  10. There's something I don't really get about this. In the Samsung case it's a little different because they're taking audio and it's leaving your TV to the Internet, but when the Xbox one was supposed to always be listening people got really freaked out about spying. I don't see this as any different to any microphone connected to software. Everybody with a mobile phone is taking it on faith that the software in the phone isn't switching on the mic and sending that away or doing something nasty. Similarly, the xbox one is listening, but you're taking it on faith that it's not doing anything nast

    Hi, Does anyone have any experience with these? I have been told that it's a good idea to get a cheaper ~$50 one to practice my piloting. I expect that I will probably be terrible and crash it often. Is it as fun as I imagine it will be?
  12. Not entirely relevant, but I have noticed that people will *almost always* click on links. It's a weird fetish the computer using world has. If you want to mask something, use a URL shortener first. Most of the shortening services offer a simple http based API, if you need it to be automated.
  13. I just recently bought a laptop. I wanted a large one that I could work on, so got a 15.6'' Asus. I can't remember the brand name, but it's part of their "ultrabook" (but not nearly as nice as the macbook air) series. It has an SD card reader, i5 processor and 4GB of RAM, 3 hours of battery at regular use (this is my experience, rather than the 5.5 promised). Debian installs without problems and all of the hardware works without any issues. For what you want, I don't think you need to get anything better than what I described above. Perhaps get one of the alternatives with a proper video card
  14. I have been using 7zip and Winzip recently. Neither however perfectly hits the spot in terms of what I want from a file compression tool. I would like: Something where I can compress/decompress on both Windows and Linux. .zip files are OK for that. Random access. .7z files do not allow this, so if you have a really big archive, it has to look through serially to find the one file you want to extract. LZMA and PPMD. Both Winzip and 7zip support compression and decompression of these. 7zip is no longer being maintained and I'm concerned that all of my .zipx archives will be inaccessible to me
