The Process Of Making Things.

What do you want to build? Anyone and everyone can build something. The first step though is to decide what you want to make. It could be as simple or complex as needed to achieve what you want. It could be mechanical, cosplay, baking: anything your mind can make up! Once you have an idea, start jotting down what you want to do and figure out your process. I’m going to talk through what I doRead More…

Why I Started Using “Poop” As Variable

Not very many are going to understand this unless they’ve worked at a startup or at a company that pushes their workers to get code working with very little testing. The “poop” variable in coding is very funny and very real. I personally started using this out of anger and i know other programmers have done the same. Several companies ago I was pushed to build something per customer expectatRead 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…

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…

Flipper Zero — Tamagochi for Hackers

A super cool hacking tool that I just backed.  The basic’s, It’s like… a digital skeleton key. Kinda. But for everything from TVs to front gates. That being said, it can do a lot more from the looks of it. U2F, RFID Reader, and what I’m very excited about is the GPIO functions.  For people talking about “Is it Legal” It’s just a piece of hardware. Legality is determined by your usage. Read More…

Failing

It happened. You finally landed that next large project, the one that you think will defend all of your decisions leading up to this point. The big one that will redeem all of that hard work during the years leading up to it.  But the fact is that there is no one project that will do that. No one project will ever do that because that’s not how life works. All these projects really are is a waRead More…
