Project Pi-Up

Intro The idea here is to run a Rasberry Pi for as long as possible. I got the idea after finding a couple of different Reddit posts where people were comparing the up-times of their Raspberry Pis. This is a fun, silly little project, and so far, it’s been showing me some engineering challenges that I didn’t expect. A long time ago, I had purchased a specific module that allowed for dRead More…

Why The Empire Will Always Lose At Data Security

***MANDALORIAN SEASON 2 SPOILERS AHEAD*** For those of you familiar with season 2, episode 7’s Mandalorian face reveal, the internet and data nerds are having a field day with it. People are saying this is a “captcha” in order to detect if a droid is accessing Imperial data. I would fully believe this if it didn’t also scan for New Republic agents/associates and listed criminals. No ties to Read More…

Com64 Part2

Why a Commodore Rebuild? I’m not even really sure why I wanted to do this project to begin with. One day, I get this random idea that I want to turn an old Commodore into a current working Hardware. Seemed like a fun challenge and I needed a silly project to get me through COVID-19 Quarantine so I started planning it out. I think I should note and say that when I got this Commodore 64, it diRead More…

Commodore 64 Rebuild – Part 1

This is part one of my Commodore 64 rebuild. I really didn’t know what I was getting into with this project, but I wanted to rebuild a Commodore into a RetroPi machine. I wanted this cleaned up, remade, and have a new look. I also wanted the keyboard to work and not replaced. Part one is me getting started on the project, part 2 will be paint and electronics.

Smoke Master 9000

So for a while, I really wanted a smoker. But I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on one, especially if I didn’t know if I would actually like doing it. So when one of my buddies gave me a really crappy smoker that he found on the side of the road, I decided I was going to make my own to try smoking out for myself. The grill (s) Here are the initial pictures of the smoker I was given. As yRead More…

How I Found An S3 Vulnerability.

It all started back in 2018 with the below email: I selected the link within the email it brought me to the following URL. Notice it’s a straight S3 link to a public S3 URL, with PII in it. (Take my word on that) :). So I sent this email: To which they responded: Now, remember, this is 2018: right at the height of the S3 bucket madness. You couldn’t go a single month wiRead More…

Dell N Series – No Free IP Address To Offer In Pool

At this site we installed a new Dell N Series core replacing a bunch of old junk. As I’m doing the new build I moved all the DHCP requests to the core and away from windows which took care of all the DHCP requests. This was on a off day with no one around (Duh replacing the core) and I was not really worried. After about 30 minutes my console is filling up with the below messages. Note: Yes it’Read More…

Flipper Zero — Tamagochi for Hackers Backed.

With 37,987 backers and almost 5 million dollars (the original goal was $60,000), I’d say they did exceptionally well. They added some new features from when this Kickstarter began. One significant addition is an SD card slot! With that addition, it would be a good guess that this device will be able to be used as a jump drive. The Flipper will have an NFC and Bluetooth, regardless ofRead More…

Can I have pumpkin spice yet ?

An overall silly site I made. It was built out of anger when I started to smell Pumpkin in the middle of summer.. What makes the magic happen (Code below). Just a simple script that changes the content of the site from 9-22 to 11-01. <body> <div id=”answer”></div> <script> var answer = “Fuck it, Its 2020, Go Nuts.”; var today = new Date(); var nowRead More…
