k2h @ blogshares

It looks like blogshares spider for finding things is better than googles submit engine. you see, I submitted k2h.blogspot.com to googles search engine awhile ago, and you'd think that since blogger.com is OWNED by google maybe they'd at least list their own pages but apprently not.

so I finally get linked to by SOMEBODY and it turns out to be blogshares. you can see me for sale at k2h on blogshares.

embedded ethernet

I have recently worked on some projects that involve ethernet on the embedded level. I think this technology [old as it may be] deserves some attention. in my off time I'll read the following

Deeply Embedded networking [berkly class]
Toms Networking, hacking linux on a linksys NSLU2
Ethernut, hardware, RTOS solution

Remove the blogger bar

Someday I may want to remove the blogger toolbar. if or when I ever do I think i'll check diaphaneity or I'll try remove the bar.

Gmail, already hacked?

It seems some group AusPhreak wants to assist the general public in cracking gmail passwords. Thats nice of them. with the lack of anything else to crack. check out the heads up at Bonar Media.

Gmail Hack 0.9b
I really don't think THIS gmail hack is the one that lets you use a perl script to save all of your 'useful data to your gmail account for free web storage' that you've already heard about.

I also don't think its the one that tells you to SHIFT+F to forward a message.

someday I'll check it out and assess its threat. until then I think i'll stick with somewhat of a secure password for Gmail. something along the lines of:

1) much longer than the minimum
2) must contain at least one 'special' character (yeah.. I don't use that yet either)
3) must be a good mix of alpha / numeric

if your still a stranger to strong passwords, get started at your local microsoft site.

Gmail, a social virus

Gmail is most definatetly a social virus if I've ever seen one.

I remember the good old days of the origional bots on aol. The thinking was if you could JUST GET YOUR NAME ON ONE you'd have 560 emails [or whatever it was] that contained up to 15 meg each of 'warez'. yup.. those were the days.

Then we all moved on to IRC, then to crappy P2P networks like kazaa/grokster/k++ (all same thing by the way) and most reciently bittorrent. yup. maybe the good old days are back. if we want them secure maybe we'll give WASTE a chance.

Until then I wonder how long it will take for people to revert back to the click and send mentality that AOL had us nursing on. With Gmail I don't think it will take long to find out.

If you look at the bottom of Gmail you'll see something like this:

You are currently using 0 MB (0%) of your 1000 MB.
