On a previous post, i talked about my new phone. This post is about rooting it. Why root it, how to root it, how to unroot it and how to check if it’s rooted. Continue reading “Rooting my Samsung Galaxy Y”
My networking teacher said that it would be cool to turn one of the routers that we have been playing with (Asus RT-N16) into an AP so that the class would connect to it instead of the schools network nearest AP.
Why do that? So we can see who is accesing what, get some statistics on that and probably to make a “wall-of-shame” where we could write the students usernames and passwords.
Since we started our database courses (last semester), the teacher introduced us to XAMPP or LAMPP (if on linux) – it is an Apache distribution that contains MySQL, PHP, Perl and an FTP server (proftpd). It’s intended to be easy to install and use and it’s good for developers. Continue reading “LAMPP or XAMPP – How to”
I finally got an Android phone to play with. Welcome to this century, right? It’s, as the title says, a Samsung Galaxy Y S5360. The Y stands for Young. Get your full specs here. Bought it for a cheap price from a classmate. I’ll probably find out the next days why so cheap, but it works. I like it. Continue reading “Samsung Galaxy Y S5360”
I remember my first time doing wardriving (not that long ago). I only used my laptop and my mothers car. Of course i did everything manually, like writing down every AP and MACs and so on.
Since we got some new “toys” here at school, my networking teacher dared me to do some wardriving using a bluetooth GPS and an external wireless adapter. See my last 2 posts for info on them.
I wanted to play with this for a long time, since i was looking for a good packet-injecting wireless adapter (mine can’t do that). It is probably the most recommended usb adapter for doing fun wireless stuff. Now, i finally got it! Ok, not me personally, but the school got it, but it’s almost the same for me. They got it from here , if you were wondering.
Got a new “toy” from the school to work on some projects. It’s a bluetooth GPS. Really small.
I’ve been using Firefox since … well i don’t know, probably since i realised that IE sucks big time (and that’s some time ago). Anyway, we all know that with web-browsing comes along a lot of irritating stuff like pop-ups and gazilions of ads. Besides that our every move on the web si being monitored by different services, which makes things more anoying for IT guys. Common internet users don’t even know or care if they are being watched or not. Continue reading “Firefox add-ons”
I’m currently running a dual boot Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7 but i only use Windows for gaming purposes. Since i got in touch with Linux (almost a year ago) i wanted something automated that would install everything i want, tweak stuff, disable stuff.
Yesterday i remebered that i want this and i started on some scripts. One of my teachers said that, and i quote “bash-scripting is for masochists” and i kinda agree, but i wanted to use a linux standard tool for this. Continue reading “My bash scripts”
Because i came to school 2 weeks late, (because of an extended summer vacation) i already had 2 project going and i didn’t knew what to do. In special subject 2, my coordinator teacher “suggested” (told me what to do :D) to play a bit with RS485 and make a script in Python related to that.
Here is a quick system overview:
