  1. I use the command line irc client, irssi, and I frequent an Amateur radio irc, the TwiT.tv irc, and the nouveau irc. all three very lively
  2. What the hell?? So...how is this even possible? The network in my house, is reading -63 dDm... So according to the wiki, that's about 1 nanoWatt. I'm not an electrician obviously, but how on earth can my wifi router only put out 1 nanoWatt?? That sounds microscopically small? Doesn't the radiating antenna need lots of power to pump out that wifi frequency throughout my house? It sounds really bizarre that the power from the wifi router is only operating with such a small weak signal. Infact looking up on the chart on the wiki, it shows that WiFI bands b/g/n use about 200 miliWatts. and
  3. So I noticed that all wifi analyzers, and readers, display the signal strength of wireless hotspots, and wireless connections in decibels, but in miliwatts. Furthermore, no matter what signal I look at it's always a negative number. I've seen ranges all the way from -23 down to -78 dBm. At first this confused me as I never saw any positive numbers, I assumed that the negative was bad no matter what... But thinking about it.. One the receiving end of an analyzer..the signal strength must ALWAYS be negative right? If I put it like this, you can't hear something louder than it was originally sen
  4. Wow, Digip, fantastic and hopefully not time consuming for you, explanation! I wasn't the one who requested it, but this is a benefit to us all...
  5. Cipher downgrade during negotiation?
  6. Honestly, this guy hamzaabdullahmoh should be banned...
  7. Furthermore...do any of these firmware support UEFI? And more specifically, secureboot?
  8. Lol, I dub it the "smoke 'em out" method
  9. Hey everyone, while taking my morning and going through the GRUB manual: Grub Install I came across two questions that are picking at me. This is in regards to an MBR partitioned disk. There are apparently two "main" methods to installing GRUB to an MBR style disk. We can insert GRUB after the leading chunk of MBR on the disk, and before the first partition. Or we can install GRUB to a specified partition itself. (Usually the first). Do i have this right? So my questions are thus: 1. If the first option is chosen, to insert the bootloader after the MBR, would we still have a /boot/gru
  10. Most likely network-manager? Not 100% sure on your system. Run : sudo systemctl status networking.service and then run: sudo systemctl status systemd-networkd.service One of those should be active and the other should be dead. Whichever is actice is most likely handling your interfaces
  11. Lol, Cooper, why am I not suprised :P I'm currently using openbox as a DE so it's fairly minimal as well, but the OS I use comes with Terminator, which in turn uses xterm by default. To supplement what you said Cooper, I present this: http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/93376/which-terminal-type-am-i-using
  12. Hmm I see... So, most "terminal emulators" (guake, terminator, termite etc..) will always use some other predefined "terminal type" (xterm, vt100, ) I'm assuming that xterm though was at once point a terminal emulator as well though, because it's listed here as an application: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Category:Terminal_emulators I'm also assuming that the terminal emulator applications can support multiple and different terminal types? So in general, we people fuss over what terminal emulator they like best.. does this mean that they're actually arguing about the terminal typ
  13. Hey everyone, So I'm a bit confused about the settings of linux terminals. I have two terminals installed on my system. I can open either. I have Guake and I have terminator. But when I do echo $TERM, on both terminals it displays that the terminal is xterm. It was my understanding that xterm is a much older console, so why are both terminals displaying that they're xterm? Are they both using the xterm source or something? I don't have the experience, but do other terminals like rxvt, wterm, konsole etc... do they all use xterm as well? Why does xterm seem like the "base" for other termin
  14. Cooper, your devotion to providing quality, well thoughtout answers to our questions is remarkable...You really should start like a blog or compedium of all of the information you provide to the curious minded noobies like us lol. Seriously though I'd hate to think all of this information you take the time to write and think about, going to waste... Anyway thanks for the answer, that cleared up a lot! You say: Team A is potentially legally fucked - the maker of the original device can sue them claiming Team A somehow had access to confidential documents so they must disappear Wow... serio
