  1. Hacker - Someone who likes full control over everything techie they (or others) own. MacOS - An operating system that is the complete opposite of control, striving to lock down every little thing that a user should be able to do, but now can't. No thanks, I'll stick with Linux.

    You're better off writing your own nowadays. They can't fingerprint what they don't know exists
  3. The link is now broken. Can anyone provide a new link to the firmware? Thanks.
  4. This. Wiping my PC is almost an annual spring clean thing for me. I accumulate too much crud, plus it 99.9% guarantees to remove any dodgy stuff that AV didn't pick up. I like to wear my tin foil hat whilst doing it, too.
  5. I'm one of these nutters that wipes their PC more often than they need to But yes, good point!
  6. Someone comes in with a Windows 10 PC that they can't remember the password for? Use the Utilman.exe > cmd.exe trick to get root CMD prompt. Reset the password for the user you need to log in to. Create new user. Log in with new user. Grab all data the owner of the PC wants to keep. Wipe machine and reinstall Windows 10 from scratch. Replace saved data. Profit. No need to over-complicate things. The majority of users that forget their Windows password are going to be the kinds of people who only have family photos and save game files (etc.) that they want to keep, which you can pull using the above. Anyone who wants deeply-embedded, admin-only-accessed data will probably not be forgetting their password in the first place. If you really do need admin login, you can grab the SAM files using the above method and then crack using HashCat/John etc.
  7. Back in my teen years, Wing Commander Prophecy was absolutely brilliant.
  8. Do you parents have the same WiFi router? Sounds like the router is doing something to make the Tetra hang. Maybe a security feature, or simply the way in which it transmits it's data. Try your hub elsewhere?
  9. Whilst I agree that this antenna is excellent once you know which AP to target, pinpointing the direction of an AP is no good with this. The beam-width is too wide, around 100-120 degrees. I believe what the OP is looking for is an antenna with as narrow a beam-width as possible. Yagi is the way to go, unless someone can find a panel antenna with a really narrow beam. Another option would be DIY. Use a panel antenna and design an aluminium / copper casing that narrows the beam down.
  10. This is fantastic; https://www.amazon.co.uk/Aukey-Powerpack-Portable-Powerbank-Smartphone/dp/B00SR5N5HU 20000 mAh. I get a full day of power for the RPi from it, plus I can use it to charge a multitude of other devices, 2 at a time. It's rugged and solid, a little weighty but not too bad, and certainly not a Chinese rip-off. I've had mine a year and it's still just as good. It's a good price too. £20, or around $30.
