  4. Check out jEdit: http://t.co/HGycoGnQ It close to my old fave BRIEF where got my first job in computer biz.

  5. I used to support Borland Turbo C a great tool in its day. Borland eventually released Turbo C to the public domain so if you google for it you'll find it on many sites for download. It's old, but C hasn't changed that much. Otherwise the GNU C is available and will be more current.
  6. Keep learning about networking and how OS's are designed. Learn to program in a low level language that puts you more in touch with the system like C. That will help with understanding buffers, stacks, and so on. The more you learn the more you find there is to learn.
  7. The return of the dumb terminal http://t.co/7WPpJ7wZ Just replacing Token Ring with Wifi. Booooo!!!!

  8. Al reet, up early & to the gym a lot less crazy. Now rev'ed up and ready to code all day. w00t-w00t!!

  9. I've done it in the past and its not fast and with OS's getting bigger and bigger I wouldn't try it these days. It was a popular way to install Debian and I believe you can still do it. You have to boot a minimal installer then pull all the packages across the net. A place I worked at a couple years ago they made custom Windows installs and would distribute the ISO to all the remotes sites. They experimented with network install. Again it required a special boot disk that connected back to HQ and then pull all the CAB's and config info across the net. It was a slow process so ended up only used it later for very special install they didn't want to distribute ISO's for.

  19. After latest iPhone hack, Charlie Miller kicked out of iOS dev program http://t.co/NpJT7th5 Should embrace not turn away!

  20. Excellent post. I would only add check the software you are going to use most is it multi-threaded, in other words is it written to take advantage of multiple cores. If it isn't then the extra cores won't be as much of an advantage. If you really are into gaming check out laptops designed for gaming they tend to be higher priced, but generally are high-performance systems with the video for gaming.
  21. As an Sys or network admin scripting is very important so keep working on that. I would say a popular language these days is Python and it is very versatile. Perl is good and most Unix systems come with perl support by default, there are extensions to do just about anything with Perl.
  22. In that budget you can get a lot of laptop these days, Darren and Shannon use Acer's TimelineX. If you want a desktop (more bang for buck) then do as other say and build one yourself. You can find deals on bundles of parts or start getting your Google-fu together and check out hardware sites. If you're going to be running Linux then you can use less expensive hardware and get two or more computers so you can setup a small test-lab. These days everything is done over networks so good to have a network to test on. Getting your search skills together is as valuable as your hack skills there is a lot of info available, but you need to learn how to get search engine to do what you want. There is ton's of info at all levels once you learn how to search it out. Remember the doing is the real teacher making mistakes and fixing them teacher more real world skills than reading a stack of books.

  23. Wireless on a server, that is a scary thought! Pick a card based on chipset that way you avoid driver and app support issues/hassles. I think it was the most recent Hak5 show Darren says same thing, use a supported chipset and the rtl8187 is one Linux has supported for years.
