The internet has grown to be a very plentiful place, and like the real
world, it's mostly full of trash.
A peaceful refuge was needed for just a few maverick survivors of the
internet boom - this is .aware, and all you need to
enjoy yourself is an icy can of coke, with all the fine data on this

We got defaced? by on 08/06/14 05:46
Someone defaced the beta zine index. I can't be bothered to find out how, but honestly it's no surprise. If you could see the cancerous ulcer of a php script I wrote? Well, let's not go there. To the one who did it: I'd still be curious to know the attack vector. Or not. Whatever you want.
Christmas Time! by on 12/25/13 06:53
This year, we won't be around CCC, because most of the talks are really boring and the few good ones can be streamed. The rotting meatsack that I am will be tossed carelessly into a padded room where I'll hack mindlessly at my laptop in a dazed effort to relive my long gone glory days as a truly elite c0der wannabe.
Fixed the site by on 02/04/13 12:46
The hideous abomination of php code that riddles this website with security holes has been given another sloppy, quick and dirty fix so the site looks nice to the casual observer. At least you can browse the archives again.
Downtime for Christmas by on 12/30/12 10:48
So, it appears the site was down for christmas. I could try to find out why, but I don't care enough. Went to 29c3, didn't get much done, ate a lot of fast food. I'm old, fat, and boring now. However, I found out about Edwards curves, that shit is rad.
This is the win32 prototype of my big integer library. Because of the inline assembler, it will not compile with gcc, as I pointed out before. Sooner or later there will be a written article about this library and a documentation, remember that this is just a preview.
At home, I have static IP's - and everyone else is using DHCP for their phony little plastic routers. Even I, on occasion, have to switch my network interface to DHCP. Now I finally sat down and wrote a VBScript that allows you to easiely switch a network interface from static to dynamic IP configuration, bypassing the long way through control panel etc.
Be warned: The script stores its configuration in itself. Basically, whenever you enter something in a prompt - it gets written back into the script (check the UpdateSelf routine). So - make sure you have no quotation marks in your IP address.
