Washingtonpost.com has a good, wide variety of comics.  Not as good as Ucomics, but you can get a great home page with headlines and comics to start to, which I really like.  I always check it first.  They're doing some system maintnence right now, but will hopefully be back online wi...

I've been telling a bunch of people about Introversion (people on my MUDs and chat channels, helping a friend write a review/news item for his web site)... I hope I get the bonus CD too.  :)

I got my copy of Uplink today!  I ordered it Friday night.  Introversion kicks ass- from the UK to New York in five days for $4 postage is not bad.

Use File Deleter, only on your own Memory Bank, not a server.

Linux (and FreeBSD) are fully downloadable, but it's often advised to shell out the couple bucks to get a full retail copy.  You can get a lot of useful stuff there, in both software packages (SuSE Linux comes with 4 GB of software alone, along with the OS) and documentation.

Hard copy's always cooler.  Two prides of my collection are the Linux Bible and a spiral bound, early decade hard copy of Zen and the Art of the Internet.

Still seems sorta silly.  We'd at least go into the terrabyte and petabyte range before even thinking into quads.  Quads would be, like, twenty years from now, not ten.  ;)

Not too sure about glue.  Get some hot/cold aluminum duct tape and you can put it on your case's outside easily.  Regular duct tape (at least on the inside of the case) doesn't stick as well, but the metal stuff will work.

UNIX is still the backbone of a great deal of the internet, and just understanding the system will give you a great deal of zen sense of computers and their function as a whole.   The Rainbow books were true old school hacker schwag- free mail-order security books the DoD would send to people w...

Er, yeah.  You can get a window kit from them, too.  They also sell precut cases, but they're Lian-Li aluminum cases, so they're more expensive than your regular stuff.  

If you donm't have aw indow or at least a hole in the system, the neon is sort of useless.

Ah... so it's sort of useless unless you have a confirmed secure channel anyway (because the key would be at least as necessary as the data itself for transfer), while there can be free sharing of keys with all those $_-bit algorythms... cool.   Just seems sort of silly if, even if it's so grea...

Bah!  True hackers (and I'm not one of them) don't ask for or even download programs to hack.  That doesn't make you a hacker, that makes you a smegging scriptkitty!  

I miss the old school.

www.pcmods.com.  It's very low on the electricity drain, and uses a pass-through electrical hookup so you don't have to waste an entire plug on it.

I dunno, if it uses the same algorythm it would still be crackable, wouldn't it?
