    This was fun :) Ideal break while working on my thesis.

    Re: +1 for closed source proprietary software!

    Why would it be better if it was open source? One could just give 'innocent' source code along with an infected binary (and since almost nobody compiles from source...).

    That's what I was saying? Okay, maybe we were having a misunderstanding :)

    1. I talked about 'learning about anonymous networks', because you seem to think your ISP can simply look at your traffic and find out who you're communicating with. In circumstances without...

    Yes, I know that... Like said, that's still not useful to them if you use an anonymous network (edit: it does have some use, to find out if you're running Tor, and to find out about the first hop....

    What exactly are you saying here? I assume with 'identify you at a packet level', you mean you can check what the packets look like and see that you're running Tor or I2P. That's correct. Still,...

    Poll: Re: Networking and being anonymous

    Yes, it's (relatively) easy to hide on the internet. Use something like Tor or I2P :) It would be extremely difficult to trace communications back to you then.
  9. Re: I need a definite answer to the Linux virus question

    -after reboot, sound no longer works when using headphones
    -my motherboard is...

    Re: Now I'm taking wine seriously

    There's nothing wrong with Cedega, and I'm sure it helps lots of Linux users.
    But this person was talking about supporting the wine developers, and getting a Cedega license is NOT the way to do that.

    Re: Now I'm taking wine seriously

    Cedega has nothing to do with Wine, they forked from Wine long ago ;-)

    So getting a Cedega license won't help Wine at all.

    It was of course much simpler (but it still looked wicked cool :) ).

  16. Re: Microsoft also knows windows server sucks, according to netcraft lol :)

    This is simply because they asked Akamai to do load balancing for them, and the Akamai servers run Linux.
    The Microsoft servers do run IIS on Windows.

    I know it would suck, especially for something like Tic-Tac-Toe, but I figured the idea would be interesting :)

    Or if you want to make it really complicated without reason, you could create a neural network and train it to solve the Tic Tac Toe game :-D
  21. Re: The new Firefox 3 Beta 2 Fails Acid 2 test!

    What happened is that something changed on the server hosting the test, so when it can't find a page, it returns a 200 status message, instead of a 404.

    It's actually the Acid2 test that's currently broken. Try in Opera, it'll fail too.

    Re: Programming kernel modules

    Okay, I checked /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.22-14, and there's no README file there. I also tried various includes with gcc, and they all seem to fail.
    I'm kinda lost here, I'm afraid.
    Any hints?

    Re: Programming kernel modules

    Ah, I didn't know that.
    I had a class today, in which we compiled the same module, with the gcc -c -O speaker.c command, and it worked fine. I assumed it would be the same here.
