  • Fedora Core 4 and Enlightenment E17

    November 28, 2005

    It has been a while since I messed with a Windows Manager and I have not ran Enlightenment in ages. So I figured I would give E17 a spin, this is what I did in order to get it up and running.

  • Using VI to search for specific patterns

    April 17, 2005

    So this is a short little something I was working on tonight. Yes tonight as in a saturday night. I am a workaholic.

    Anyway, if you would like to search for the following pattern using VI or if you would like to use syntax highlighting using your own vim file.

    Patter: ##/##/##@##:##:##

    Search command:


    or the much cooler one


    For all your wildcard needs, remember to refer back to the awesome VI doc site here. Enjoy.

  • MandrakeSoft out of Chapter 11 Protection

    March 30, 2004

    Just saw on /., that Mandrake is out of their Chapter 11 like protection which they filed some months back. Good to hear for my favorite linux distribution. I have some reservations over the new Mandrake, however I will not pass any judgement until I get the official release from the MandrakeSoft store.

    Support your linux companies, time is not free and their efforts are definetly appreciated.

  • Awesome article from SecFoc.com

    February 5, 2004

    Definetly a great article about Low-level enumeration (port scanning). Talks about some of the techniques everyone’s favorite scanning software (NMAP) uses, which gives you a great insight to all those little commands like:

    nmap -v -sS www.microsoft.com

    Read all about it, I found it more than informative.
