Webring.com pretty much hijacked the whole webring. I don't know how its being managed. I stepped away for some IRL issues awhile back with the intention of returning to admin the webring but when I got back I found that the Webring.com managers had taken it over due to lack of activity...no notice or anything.

They stated that they had served noticed in the manager forums and newsletters (??). Now, if a webring owner doesn't monitor those media, WTF is one to do...an e-mail to the webring owner may have been much more proactive.

In addition to that, I've Webring Support emailing me back with teenage responses. I'm SOOOO glad I didn't actually spend money on a membership or I'd be pissed (then again, if I were a paying member, this may never have happened...heh).

So, I'm out a webring that I created and managed for years, due to Webring.com being a bit overly zealous in their management. In the meantime, I've no idea how the webring is being managed. They aren't accepting adoptions and even when they do start accepting adoptions, I'm not about to sit there and elect myself when it was mine to begin with. They must be out of their minds. I'm not going to get bent over like that. Whoever wants it can have it. I'm happier without the damn thing.

Yeah, I still have my Zaurus. It hasn't been cranked up in ages. I still use my Axim more (the PIM tools are much better and more compatible with the sync tools and PIM software on my work laptop). Its a cool tool and all but I'm thinking maybe I should've spent my money on something else, or at least waited until the SL6000. I'm thinking on reflashing back to a previous version so I can get Kismet working again...that way I can still screw with wireless pentesting.

AAARRRGGGHH!!! (no, I know this isn't Pirate's Day)

It appears that I lost management of the Zaurus Webring due to me not being diligent enough in maintaining it...that sucks. Actually, I'm still listed as the manager, but I've no management console...weird. I think I'll not pursue regaining management of it, as I think that process will be convoluted.

There've been no updates in awhile, due to the fact that I've moved jobs and been elevated in job status...that means, no time to play with the Zaurus (although I still play around...I have many toys but no cycles to dedicated a bunch of time to one specific platform).

The Zaurus hasn't been powered up in over a year. I'm thinking of restoring an updated ROM so I can access my successful backup of Kismet (and maybe USE Kismet AND the Zaurus)...

Stay tuned!

Last week, I upgraded from to Sharp's 3.13 ROM. I'm attempting to try to sync to the desktop (WinXP). It doesn't seem to be happening. I'll post once I succeed.

Hi all!

Been extremely busy with work lately...and Happy Thanksgiving (yeah, I'm early).

Being interested in a work-related project, I decided to run kismet on my Zaurus instead of running it on my laptop. It's taken quite a bit of time to get it running but I's now operational on my Z!

I'll do a write-up on it soon and provide screenshots of kismet in action. I'll also provide the URL to the kismet.conf file as soon as I upload it to one of my servers.

To secure a wifi connection using a firewall instead of WEP:


Although this guy couldn't type for crap, I think I'll try this (out of boredom).

A note: WEP is better than NO WEP. Also, there's WPA, which is LEAGUES beyond WEP.

I changed the format of this page. I like this theme...alot. Looks nice, not plain, not gaudy.

I've even added comments.

Keep in mind, the archived posts will still show the old theme. Oh well.
