(I could be wrong, but...) You really don't need a tool, unless you're going to be doing a large number of them at once. It's really just a matter of doing a search on the given target site to see how they pass in the search string to what. Then set the @ value to that string, give it a new alias, and reapply the new .reg patch file.

So, the moral of this story is: Never use a production db server for a honeypot...  cheesy

Atheist also, but...
I think it might be a good idea to put that pic in a spoiler, considering dc's

Um, Yeah ... Not everybody is going to find that funny.


On a side note, isn't Tapping Out just a Pro Sports way of crying uncle/ to concede the match and avoid further injury?

Security companies that get hacked by SQL injection deserve it.

They had an update mid way through last month that suddenly decided my Win7 computer was suddenly non-genuine.

You got that one too?!? I thought I was special...  Sad

It showed up on my Win7 x64 Pro dev machine about the same time, but revalidated after a reboot or two (I'm thinking at some point it reinstalled part of the WGA stuff, but I wasn't really paying attention).

Wow - That's completely mind blowing - I will never feel guilty for harping about the 80/20 rule ever again.

I'm just after the with SP1 install images to eliminate a few hours of update downloading on reinstalls. smiley

Other than that I don't recall hearing of anything earth shatteringly new in it.

They were SSD's. There is a link at the bottom to a pdf of the quite detailed research paper.

Zoiks! That is a bit of a disturbing revelation. Apparently the only truly safe way to dispose of an old thumb-drive is with a hammer...  undecided
I wonder if thumbdrives employ over-provisioning? The recent fast ones might have taken a few clues from how SSDs work, but I wouldn't be too worried with older/slower drives.

It seemed (to me) to be what the closing statement of the article was implying:
Quote from: From the Article
Right now, SSDs are most often encountered in USB thumb drives, and it's not unusual for them to hold as much as 32 GB of data. An increasing number of laptops by default ship with SSDs installed as the primary storage mechanism. Flash storage underpins that vast majority of smartphones, as well.

Sure it could be a bit of a (sensational) stretch ... But there are just some conversations I don't want to have... Wink
2961  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Why is Software for Hardware Always Sucky? on: February 22, 2011, 12:26:55 PM
I've rather assumed that it's because those companies are hardware oriented and see user interface software as just a last minute chore that has to be undertaken before rushing to market.

I always assumed it was to be flash, i.e. you couldn't possibly interact with our shiny new hardware through some drab efficient interface, here use our custom UI.

Put these two together and I'd say that nails it. Engineering is guilty of the first one, and marketing the second.

Maybe they need to have the women stare at the men's crotches to have the same effect.

I was wondering about that one myself - invalid "test" - a break in eye contact is usually more a sign of weakness/uncertainty. It's not going to un-nerve anybody; especially a guy...as we're chronically "thick" about subtleties.

But what if we say that everyone who donates (either a new donation or sending existing donationcredits to site account) can enter into a drawing to have an idea turned into an application?

...I hate to be a pest...But does that mean we can do the 50/50 thing?

Let us not forget the fact that Chrome forced every major browser to have an overhaul in their interface in the attempt of mimicking Chrome's slightly more screen real estate

Fact? Really? ...So, it didn't have anything to do with the vertical resolution of the suddenly mandatory wide-screen monitors causing the real estate shortage to start with? Which forced everybody individually to dive at the same obvious solution.

This is a project I play with from time to time, It's a windows service that pings a listening app with info about the sending machines status. It's a bit crude but shows the basics of the back and forth socket handling stuff. It's written is pure Win32 API C++. Hopefully it may be helpful.

So it was finally decided that the company website was indeed horribly dated. As I don't have the time, or art skills necessary to do it properly (I have several failed attempts as documented proof) ... We're having a third party do it. This requires adding a CMS system (CMS Made Simple), which I'm on the hook to install. Okay...

I don't even remember what the exact chain of update requirements was ... But I'm currently working on doing a test upgrade to PHP v5.3.5 (VC9 - Thread Safe) on a lab server so I don't completely torch the production server, and things do seem to have changed quite a bit.


At the moment I'm running the new PHP installation under FastCGI with the php-cgi.exe instead of the ISAPI DLL. On my other server I use the ISAPI. Both are the ZIP file and not the installer. FastCGI is supposed to give far better performance (20x?), so that's why I'm running with that.

20x?!? (Damn) ...I'll have to investigate that one myself. I actually don't recall why I went the ISAPI route originally, but it was several years ago when I first set up an IIS5 (Win2k) web server and I've just been replicating that config ever since.

I do. Because the CGI extension just didn't work reliably! cheesy

Seems ok now though. Microsoft is recommending FastCGI and the php-cgi.exe binary. They've got a whole truckload of open source stuff available at the MS site. Have for a while now actually.

I tried doing a manual install (without-a-net) first and that went badly mainly due to the (save for the many folks complaining about it) seemingly undocumented decision to do away with the (key Web Services Extension target file) php5isapi.dll. It is no-longer part of the package. So apparently the CGI route is now stringently recommended by way of mandate.

I ended up (just to get something to work) going the installer route, and discovered that the Web Services Extension entry is not automatically added by the installer. I went with plain CGI as I hadn't added FastCGI (testing...) yet and the server responds noticeably slower (with CPU usage spiking) even though I'm the only requester ... Zoiks!

I'll update this later with how/why/what happens info. as the story unfolds. smiley

Once you know those two things then what I would do is:
1) BIOS settings for the particular ports should already be AHCI but it doesn't hurt to check.
2) Download the 7 x64 AHCI driver for the Intel SATA ports from ASUS and copy the contents of IMSM_V8901023\Driver\Disk to a flash drive.

Just on the odd chance that the directory structure has changed, make sure that there is a txtsetup.oem file as that is what Windows setup will be looking for.

You two ain't never been in jail, have you?

I thought that having one life to live at a time was enough. It seem that many want to also have a virtual life.

I would totally jailbreak my pacemaker and have it do some cool shit.

yet the Apple fans mock it because they feel IBM is lumbering and "so yesterday."

That's because IBM used the wrong name and avatar for their project. They should have given it a cutiesy name and a doe-eyed fawning imbecile avatar. Then the Apple crowd would have bought millions of them overnight.
