I do agree with making memorable passwords like this, but this doesn't perfectly align with password attack techniques. Bruteforce is generally a last ditch effort. If someone chose to do an attack where they combined 3-6 words from the English dictionary, they may crack a password faster than a completely random one… Read more
Where do you find VPSes with that much storage and what's the pricing look like?
Generally stores need proof you had the card in the store so simply giving them the information wouldn't work. If you can't swipe your card, usually they enter it and then make a physical copy with carbon paper and the machine or a shading. Probably your only option would be to buy a giftcard at an in store computer… Read more
I think the link at the bottom is wrong. It goes to another Lifehacker article
My grandpa (an electrician) used to wire the bottom plug to the switch and leave the top plug off so you could have your lamp plugged in along with other things you didn't want turning on and off on the same outlet. That way you wouldn't have to run extension cords or move lamps where you didn't want them.
Hopefully people also understand the limitations of WiFi. Per channel, only one decide can communicate with an access point at a time unless there are very high end access points with features like beam forming. It's possible you happen to be in a room next to 4 other rooms trying to stream HD Netflix and the access… Read more
Anyone know how these compare to Kii keyboard? I've been using it for a while (before Google Keyboard supported swiping) and really like it. It's pretty similar, but I like the setup and way it works a little better.
I don't think that would have helped for this one. This attack allows a middle man to force weak ciphers then crack the information after the fact since they can recover the key easier (since weak encryption was forced/used)
For cell phone problems, filing an FCC complaint can work wonders. I read about the idea in a forum post somewhere. Cincinnati Bell raised my rates in contract—of course their worthless contract doesn't lock in rates—and I filed an FCC complaint. Within a couple weeks I had a permanent credit on my bill bringing it… Read more
Of course, don't forget none of this matters if you're using a severely outdated computer. Those update boxes nag you for a reason
Just text it or save it to a text file and upload/send it from the computer. If you're worried about the security implications of texting a password, just leave a little bit out (preferably parts easy to put back in with the keyboard). Native apps will typically leave you logged in for a long time. Read more
The only way to check the transmission fluid on my Chevrolet Cobalt is through a screw on the bottom of the transmission. To get to it, the car needs to be jacked up on a level surface. Changing it involves some cycle of turning the engine on, running it for a little bit, replacing a little fluid, and repeating. Not… Read more
I got a SAS to 4x SATA breakout cable from Ebay. Turns out it was the reason my hard drives keep falling out of the RAID array. If you breath on the connectors too hard they'll slip enough to drop the hard drive. (Which I found out after I tested each hard drive thinking one of them might have had some problems. I was… Read more
I like Monoprice, but I have had some issues. The end fell off one my coax cables pulling it through the wall (not abusing it, it just broke). The other cable and ethernet wire held up fine. I had a slim micro USB cable that almost broke off at the connector. They replaced that one no-hassle for free. I didn't bother… Read more
