try2hack.nl... Fun? Too easy? Or just silly?

I could get flamed for this, I don't know... But what does everyone think of http://try2hack.nl ?

I've heard a few people say that it's too easy and not realistic and various other things along those lines... But I thought it was actually a good bit of fun :)

I'm not sure it's all THAT easy either. I've got to level 10 and I'm stuck. IRC is just not something I'm very good with. CTCPs, CTCRs, Eggdrops... It's all foreign to me :P

Have you tried it? What did you think? What level did you get to? How did it's challenges stand up to the high caliber hackings around here?

(Any anyone wanna help me figure out what I'm doing wrong with level 10? haha)

These types of sites are ok for killing some time but are way too easy and 9 out of 10 are pointless. You would learn more from picking up 10 or so boxes (dumpster diving) and building yourself a small network with a selection of operating systems and setting up your own mock corporate network, running everything from mail servers to VOIP servers, then you can test attacks and techniques to build up your skill set.

Hey metatron, how do you recomend controlling all the computers?

One big ethernet KVM switch that will do about 12 computers?

I only have room for one monitor keyboard and mouse.

I would go with a KVM, but once there set up you can do most things remotely.
