How many people here ever used an EasyBake Oven as a kid?
Not me, although my daughter got one as a gift several years ago. She and a babysitter tried it out the first time, but they weren't happy with the results. That might be due to the fact that we only had compact fluorescent bulbs available in the pantry.

the task of delivering it to the target to infect the new hard drive without the OS noticing

like... packaging it as a critical update from the drive manufacturer... which we regularly install on customer equipment...

You'll need to determine what will work with UK Sky. But in the end if your existing connection gives you an ethernet socket, there's nothing to stop you from putting another router behind the existing one.

Here is a D-Link DIR-615, cost is $25.74 US (at least on my Amazon page). Looks like the hardware revisions from C onward are supported by DD-WRT. Better?

Worth downloading for sure.

Worth using?

So, put the Sky Hub into bridge mode and buy a real router.

You can look here to see if the QoS features of DD-WRT might fit your needs. If you think it might, then check here to see if your router is supported.

OpenWRT will likely do similar things and has a slightly different set of supported hardware, though I prefer DD-WRT's interface. I think Tomato tends to have more limited hardware support than either of the others.

You know, I've used TunnelVision for those purposes occasionally (although it's not the creeping, long term approach that can drive a man slowly mad...)  tongue
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: server 2008r2 x64 VPN to Windows 8.1 Home Premium x64 for remote access on: February 03, 2015, 09:23:10 PM
If you need VPN, how about setting up a pfsense firewall and use it for OpenVPN? There isn't an arbitrary limit on the number of clients, it's just up to your hardware. Surely you have a spare PC with a couple nics hanging around. Give it a reasonably current PC with a reasonable CPU and you ought to be fine. My very modest home network does fine with pfsense even running on an old pc with 2gb of memory and an Athlon 64 3200. Release 2.2 is out, based on FreeBSD 10.1 (current production release).

In fact, I have been using pfsense as my firewall for a year or so now, and I hang my wireless routers behind it - and just use them as access points. Easier to power cycle the wireless boxes when they get flaky, and it doesn't disturb the wired connections. Plus, save the pfsense config, and you can move to a faster box if you find any resource constraints. Or throw in a new pc if the old one croaks, very little down time. Or add a second box as a failover. Or... you get the idea. :-)

For example, I have modified unencrypted messages in programs I used to distribute but which could no longer be compiled from source for various reasons.

I've done the same thing, plus fix some stupid hard coded design/programming choices in a few progs, although I typically use HxD for that purpose. The template thing is an interesting idea, though... I will have to take a look!

Back in the day it was just whip up something by hand... all that newfangled CSS stuff came about after I had quit doing that kind of work. Back when I had a copy of Netscape ready to install, saved on a floppy.  tongue
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is the currently best Desktop Search software? on: January 19, 2015, 10:29:18 AM
Agent Ransack does not build or maintain an index, it searches on the fly. So it can be accurate (at least when I've used it) but don't expect results fast if you're looking through a lot of stuff. It's most useful if you can narrow down the best place to look.
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / HTML table formatting on: January 18, 2015, 01:56:41 PM
So I wrote a routine to pull in some basic "who's where" information from our remote desktop boxes, and I've managed to wrap the output in about the most basic table formatting you could find. For the nonce, the info is there and usable, but it's hardly appealing. Would anyone care to take a stab at making it easier on our helpdesk staff's eyes? The border on the cells is nice to differentiate the columns, but it's very busy. The last time I did any HTML, kernel 2.2 was just coming out... things have changed since then!

Here are a few rows from the table:

Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]

21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Does anyone have know why you cannot map a drive letter to an FTP drive on: January 04, 2015, 07:42:06 PM
I know this is a late addition, but happened to see this comment from Gizmo about NetDrive and thought of this thread:

NetDrive is available at http://www.netdrive.net/download.html and is a 49 MB download.  The program is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust.  Prices start at $40 after the 30-day evaluation period ends. However, after the evaluation period, the program will continue to work and will allow you a single connection. So if you only need to create one external drive letter, such as to your web site or your Google Drive, the program still remains very useful indeed.

Looks fine to me - it showed two items in my system (both had display names like "clsid:etc etc"). So it runs on Win 8.1 x64 without issue.

I did the refresh a couple times, but I was scared to click the red X while I had something highlighted. Might have kicked off the self destruct sequence?  cheesy

If you purchase a license now, you will NOT have to pay any annual subscription fees, EVER!

I bought a Family Pack which I'll install tomorrow on at least one box. The license email did not mention the lack of future subscription fees, though I guess it's just understood.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Et tu, Sourceforge? on: December 20, 2014, 06:46:10 PM
Yeah, the stuff like OpenCandy ticks me off too.

However, part of that is because if I don't want to install the crapware, I have to read the dialogs carefully and click and check the appropriate spots, even if they are grayed out like they're unavailable.  I think that honestly, I would be slightly less annoyed if the crap-wrapper defaulted to not installing anything extra at all unless you explicitly opt in during the process.  (I can't remember, did OpenCandy start out that way?)
