Useless hacking: libTorrent spoof version

Posted 07-22-2010 at 07:36 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

For my own part I made many useless creations/hacks.
One of most recent, absolutely simple and useless is a modification of libTorrent local_id, in order it to appear in other torrent clients as "libTorrent"
Stupid, isn't it?
But for those who are interested(you really are? :DDDD), it's statically defined in makefiles, to be more specific: in "configure" and "" files, as "PEER_NAME" and "PEER_VERSION"...

debian lenny - STABLE bug.

Posted 07-21-2010 at 12:21 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I have just lost my backup data thanks to STABLE versions of stupid GUI "xfburn".
Of course it was mainly my fault I didn't check if it was written okay or not and just put that away then removed source files from hard disk. Im now wondering what's on that DVD disc, some space looks to be non-empty but mounted disc is empty. Quest for future. Luckily, the data wasn't that way important so that's why I didn't check it, in oppose to other discs I've written that day.

opera 9.64 on gentoo x86_64, and other issues

Finally I've managed to set this up.
Putting my experience here, hoping it will help someone and would be on top of google results.

There are reasons for me to keep 9.64 instead of using 10.x versions. The one reason is that opera 9.64 is somehow more secure, since, most users usually upgrade to newer version (since opera is not windows/linux-bundled) and newer versions look nicely. I don't need new functionality that is bundled with 10.x tree, the other reason for why I'm...

My next impression by Linux

Few days ago I've been into some C coding and again got impressed by how greatly linux is organised! Dependencies are written the clear way. The "./configure" script is a standard. The "Makefile" is a standard. and so on... they aren't strictly linux-related but I mostly work in Linux environment... I actually refer to UNIX standards I guess. It is so simple to create and redistribute own application using standard utils, making it easily-installable! I love this!

Charles Chaplin's "The Great Dictator"

Posted 04-22-2010 at 07:22 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I was watching "The great dictator" again tonight.
No need to say it's simply a MASTERPIECE.
Once more it's a beautifully placed sudo wall.

If you never watched this movie, I strongly suggest you to see it. Especially for the speech in the final part. As well as I suggest you to see other movies by Charles Chaplin. They are all full of such a simple thing we are losing now. A thing that can be a way to new, better life on Earth.

What I can't...
