Fun VB .exe

I decided to sit down and try some Visual Basic stuff today, and I came up with this.
It’s basically a local pic surfer, especially made for surfing your porn pics. Of course, I can’t let this thing view .png files >.>

R.I.P. HD-DVD

So it seems the HD format for DVDs is no moar. Blu-Ray is now officially the format.

Toshiba, the leading backer of the HD-DVD format, has decided to officially back out of the competition. Looks like now we’ll be downloading our warez in the Blu-Ray format and on-demand shows will now be in the same format.

This of course comes right after Wal*Mart decided to drop HD-DVD. Oh, and to all that I’ve argued with over HD vs. Blu-Ray, I know… you told me so, now stfu!

Arch Linux

I tink it is about time I try a new Linux distro out, and I’ve been told that Arch Linux is a fine damn OS. Now, I am a Windows fanboy, but I’ve never been one to shun out every other type of OS.
I’ll be using VMWare to run this, mainly because the room I have my computer in does not have an ethernet jack and my wirless key does not support Linux.
I’ll be sure to tell you how this turns out!

Restricted Computer & Internet Access

It seems that my dad has all of a sudden decided to start installing parental control programs along with Norton Anti-Virus, -Spyware and Firewall on my computer. He’s using the Verizon Yahoo! Suite, too, which lets you limit internet access time. I’ve got 2 hours a day.
So, because my dad does not know about half the stuff I do, like code VB, PHP, HTML, use mIRC, “hack”, etc. and Norton logs all this stuff, I have to stop it for a while. I will also be posting here a little less often for maybe the next month.
If there are any tips on how to get rid of this stuff (and don’t say disable from start-up, I’ve already done that and he put it back) post in the comments or reach me via WLM!
I would also reccommend people not to use Norton, it messes with the Sys32 files and just sucks major ass. Use NOD32 or Zone Alarm.

VB Script Error Message

This is a fun small script you can use on your friends, family, enemies, or whomever! The instructions are pretty simple and it takes about five minutes at most to make this.

1. The first step is very simple. Open up Notepad, or (what I use) Notepad2

2. Type in the following:
prank = msgbox("title",16,"message")

3. Before we continue, take another look at what the code. It’s extremely simple to understand. Everything before the parenthesis is telling the script what type of *.vbs this is about to become. Everything inside the parenthesis is what you or the person you’re doing this to is going to see.

4. Now replace title and message with whatever you want. Remember, the title is the area with minimize, maximize, and close buttons. The message is the area where the actual message is written.

5. You’re just about finished. Your complete code should look something like this:
prank = msgbox("All your base are belong to us. [~subz0r",16,"MaD owns you.")
Just hit “Save As…” and put the file anywhere you want. Make sure you have the “All files (*.*)” option selected and save it as *.vbs.

And now you’re done! If you want multiple error messages to pop up with just one execution of the file, copy and paste your line multiple times throughout Notepad[2] and hit save.

Linux Kernal 2.6 Local Root Exploit

“This local root exploit (Debian, Ubuntu) seems to work everywhere I try it, as long as it’s a Linux kernel version 2.6.17 to 2.6.24.1. If you don’t trust your users (which you shouldn’t), better compile a new kernel without vmsplice.”

It’s no surprise that Linux has an exploit, I’m just a little shocked that this is getting so much attention. All OS (yes including Macs) have numerous backdoors, exploits, etc., though usually you only hear about ones for Windows.
