  1. It's not any of these either: davyjones_ davyjone_s davyjon_es davyjo_nes davyj_ones davy_jones dav_yjones da_vyjones d_avyjones _davyjones
  2. I created a wordlist with every possible permutation of the word arr_pirate (302,400 lines). I ran it through my while loop: while read pass; do rar e arr_pirate.rar -p$pass; done < wordlist It never found a password that worked, though. At some point, the terminal's font turned into hieroglyphics and became unreadable. There must be a better way to check rar passwords than with a simple while loop. Or maybe I shouldn't run it in a terminal... PLuNK, do you care to offer any additional hints to maybe get more people insterested in cracking this again? Can you confirm whether or not the password is a permutation of the word 'arr_pirate'? I would hate to spend 8 hours again trying to crack this password. :) So far I'm still in the game!
  3. I've never needed to crack a rar password so I'll give this a try. I haven't figured it out yet but here's what I've got so far in case this is useful to anyone: Here are the hints provided: ----- I tried rarcrack but from what I can tell there's no way to tell it the password is of fixed length. ----- I tried keeping the format of the filename consistent but changing the placement of the underscore arrpirate_ arrpirat_e ... _arrpirate I noticed the first three letters could be changed to say "rar" so I tried the same with rarpirate: rarpirate_ ... _rarpirate I tried the same with piratearr and piraterar. Neither combination worked. ----- Next, I wanted to get a list of all possible permutations of the word arrpirate. I found this script: http://www.daniweb.com/code/snippet540.html I had to install the perl module List::Permutor You can find instructions here: http://www.livejournal.com/doc/server/lj.i...up.modules.html I changed my $word = 'perl'; to my $word = 'arr_pirate'; I also changed print "One order is @set.\n"; to @set\n"; I saved the perl script as permutator.pl and ran it (using time to see how long it took): time perl permutator.pl > wordlist real 1m16.998s user 1m16.765s sys 0m0.208s The resulting file contained a space between every character which you can fix like this: sed 's/ //g' wordlist > wordlist2 mv wordlist2 wordlist The file was 3,628,800 lines long: wc -l wordlist 3628800 wordlist I noticed duplicate lines in my new wordlist: grep irarrpate_ wordlist 12 So I sorted the list using the -u (uniq) flag (again, using time): time sort -u wordlist > wordlist2 real 0m36.180s user 0m35.942s sys 0m0.220s mv wordlist2 wordlist wc -l wordlist 302400 wordlist That's a bit better. Earlier, I was using this command to try my variations of arrpirate_ on the rar file: while read pass; do rar e arr_pirate.rar -p$pass; done < wordlist There were 10 lines in each wordlist and it took roughly 1.2 seconds to go through each one. If I were to apply the same crude math on my new wordlist it would take around 8 hours to go through the whole thing 302400/10 = 30240 seconds 30240/60 = 504 minutes 504/60 = 8 hours Not bad but I want to try something else, first. One thing that PLuNK said was "The password has ten characters including one underscore." Does he mean that the password is a word and then an underscore? If that's true it would drastically cut down the size of my wordlist. I went back to the original perl script and removed the underscore from the word variable, which produced a much smaller wordlist: sed 's/arrpirate_/arrpirate/g' permulate.pl > permulate2.pl perl permulate2.pl > wordlist wc -l wordlist 362880 <-- already 3 million lines shorter sort -u wordlist > wordlist2 mv wordlist2 wordlist wc -l wordlist 30240 <-- that's better This shouldn't take near as long to go through: 30240/10 = 3024 seconds 3024/60 = 50 minutes Let's put an underscore at the end of each word: sed 's/$/_/g' wordlist > wordlist2 mv wordlist2 wordlist That's much better. I'm going to split the wordlist in half and run 2 simultaneous threads to shorten the time: 30240/2 = 15120 mkdir thread1 mkdir thread2 cp arr_pirate.rar thread1/ cp arr_pirate.rar thread2/ head -15120 wordlist > thread1/wordlist-thread1 tail -15120 wordlist > thread2/wordlist-thread2 In terminal 1: cd thread1 while read pass1; do rar e arr_pirate.rar -p$pass1; done < wordlist-thread1 In terminal 2: cd thread2 while read pass2; do rar e arr_pirate.rar -p$pass2; done < wordlist-thread2 I also opened 2 more terminals and ran this command in each one: cd thread1 (obviously using thread2 for the 4th terminal) while true; do sleep 5; ls -ltr; done Each one took roughly 30 minutes (I forgot to time them) but neither extracted the contents of the rar file. So, either I did something very wrong (which is possible) or the password does not end with an underscore. BTW, some of you guys are using older versions of WinRAR which might cause problems extracting newer files. I think Winzip versions earlier than 10 can't open encrypted zip files created with version 10+. Just a thought. Sorry for the long post but I wanted to be as thorough as possible.

    wow, that looks good! I might have to try this one.

    Neowin is the best place to go for customizing Windows. http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showforum=34 customize.org is a good place, too, but neowin.net tells you HOW to do it.
  6. I've always used AVG and I've really liked it. It's very simple, it has real-time protection, and it's ALWAYS found software that I knew was bad (even when downloading zip files). However, I'm always on the lookout for something better so when I built my new box I installed Avast. I used it for about 4 months or so and there's not much about it that I like. I just recently uninstalled it and switched back to AVG.
  7. holy crap that's fast! your ISP should have a newsgroup server that you can download from and since it's on your local network you should get incredible download speeds.

    If you've never used Linux, then stick with Windows. You can just as easily run Apache on Windows as you can on Linux. Check out xamp http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html It's everything that you'll need to get started with Apache, PHP, and MySQL.
  9. According to Google you can get a copy here: http://jkp-se.lunar-linux.org/lunar/cache/...ique-1.0.tar.gz and here: http://tx-us.lunar-linux.org/lunar/cache/s...ique-1.0.tar.gz and here: http://vxj-se.lunar-linux.org/lunar/cache/...ique-1.0.tar.gz and finally, here: http://www.slacky.it/download/multimedia/s...ique-1.0.tar.gz All I searched for was the filename so if there's a newer one than that, you're on your own. :)
  10. wow, freaking sweet, cooper. man I wished we used the metric system over here ... it just makes more sense.
  11. Are you talking about this: http://directory.fsf.org/all/sharpmusique.html And here's a little history of the program: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PyMusique

    good luck with that :)
  13. vi is hardcore? I thought emacs was hardcore? vi is freaking easy once you learn the basic commands. Even bloglines recognizes vi commands!
  14. First of all, the Enterprise version of Exchange doesn't have an IS (Information Store) size limit. Perhaps you can upgrade? To help you out with your issue on visiting every PC when you make network changes, consider the following: UltraVNC - it gives you session encryption, which WinVNC doesn't offer and it lets you authenticate based on your AD credentials. VNC is fine but that's only slightly better than physically visiting every machine. Roaming User Profiles or Folder Redirection - This would give you the ability to add a script to everyone's startup folder to automatically map printers. This requires Active Directory. Some sort of PsExec script to run a NET USE command on everyone's PC - look into the /persistent command parameter to make sure the printer mappings aren't deleted when the user logs off. Easy to script to run on every machine on the network using psexec parameters. and last but not least ... Startup / Logon scripts - your best friend when managing a network ... maps drives, printers, creates desktop icons, loads registry keys, runs other programs at startup. There is one BIG difference to keep in mind regarding the difference between a Startup script and a Logon script. Startup scripts are found in the Computer section and are ran with Administrator privileges when the computer is first booted. Logon scripts run with the user's privileges when the user logs in. You can't install programs or update HKLM registry hives in a Logon script unless your users are local administrators (BAD BAD BAD). For example, a simple Logon script that maps a printer: http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/Logon...ipt_Printer.htm Easy stuff. Do more Google searching to find how to make different printers the default printer based on the computer name. I wrote this in kind of a hurry so there might be a mistake or two.
  15. cs1.6 works perfectly using cedega, and if you're going to pirate it, make sure you stick with cedega 4, and don't upgrade to 5. As for ads in the game, are they limted to 1.6? I haven't read the article, yet, so feel free to flame me. I haven't played 1.6 in quite a while ... once you go source, you don't go back! :)
