I was in Birmingham airport at the end of March this year in WHSmith looking for a magazine to read during the flight. I was in the middle of editing the company web site at the time, an on going project but I was doing it all on XP, my company PC. That months Linux Format magazine had an article on Google web master tools and Java script and after a brief flick threw the magazine I bought it. I read the article on the plane and a bit more besides. The free CD had PC Linux OS on it. I had a go of...

Kismet An 802.11 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system

Posted 09-02-2009 at 08:12 AM by sridhar11

Kismet is a 802.11b wireless network sniffer. It is capable of sniffing using almost any supported wireless card using the Airo, HostAP, Wlan-NG, and Orinoco (with a kernel patch) drivers.Kismet identifies networks by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks, detecting (and given time, decloaking) hidden networks, and infering the presence of nonbeaconing networks via data traffic.

Trouble loading surveys

Posted 09-01-2009 at 10:36 PM by Bixie

Hi, I am a newbie, so I do not have much computer savvy, so here goes. I have been doing online surveys, most go ok, but I can not get some to load. I have Linux, Firefox3.0, if that helps any! When I click on "take survey" the left hand corner says Done, and the arrow is spinning, but the blocks on the right remain empty and will not load. Is it my browser? I would appreciate any help.

Thank You so much

Converted Slack64 to multilib today, following the procedure in the article by Eric (Alien Bob), which is excellent - clear and informative as usual. As far as I can tell, everything went OK. I could do with finding some means of testing it, but my knowledge of programming is limited to cut & paste, or just copying programs, to compile. I have edited "Hello World" programs in several languages to read "Hello, Brian! How are you today? You're looking GOOD!!", but that's the...
