Mn Posted October 19, 2008 Share Posted October 19, 2008 I bet most of us on this forum are 20+ (Should be a nice survey to know what type of population views the show...) and by now with all the big changes in operative systems and hardware chances are you have at least 2 computers in your house and god knows how many viable hardware lying around. Take me for example, i sold my old windows & linux desktop + my old acer laptop (never buy one) and bought a shinny new MacbookPro (Im a fan now) plus i got my self an external "Mybook" 500gig hard drive. Another scenario more likely to happen could be you have 1 good computer in your house and a couple of hard drives around with no good use. Here comes the idea for a hack and question... Picture this: Attach your external hard drive to a nintendo DS (its the only relatively low priced gadget that i know has wifi and has been hacked... but it could be anything) used 24/7 as a file repository and a download box (to download huge torrent files) or maybe to have all your most beloved podcasts ready for your return. Basically its a way to give good use to old hardware without the power consumption/price of a real computer or laptop. Sound good? Maybe an project worthwhile to show on a Hak5 podcast? PD: One can probably go a bit more evil and less altruistic with this, lets say the last show (have the girl go by with the DS make them reconnect to the evil pineapple and shortly after that with scripts or anything set it to download all files matching X/Y criteria (idk... ".jpeg, .docx, .xls) leave it on for a day, come back and see what you have fetched. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
