Ask Slashdot: Setting Up a Wireless Catch-and-Release

ldm Captive portal/Hot spot/walled garden hardware (332 comments)

I've used MikroTik hardware in the past to build wifi hotspots for customers. It's pretty easy to use, very friendly command line. You want something like this in an enclosure something like this. They're reasonably robust, and once configured properly, will do what you want (and a whole lot more should you want to change the setup in future) for a good long time.

Ask Slashdot: Inexpensive Anti-Theft Vehicle Tracking System?

ldm Tracking on the cheap (296 comments)

Find a Xexun TK-102 on ebay, they will report back their position via the mobile network (you supply a SIM card, and can send it a request for the current position, it will text you back). You can get large extended battery packs too, or you could wire it into the bike's power. They work well enough for us to track drivers at work. Just make sure you get a genuine Xexun one, the others are less reliable and tend to lie about their position, in my case being offset by about 4 miles. There are separate car sized ones, but I have not used them.

Ask Slashdot: Ergonomic Office Environment?

ldm KAB chair - brilliant (235 comments)

I have been using one of these http://www.kabseating.com/office/product.asp?product=81 for the last ten years. Properly adjusted, they are fantastic. Expensive but I can't recommend them enough! I have no doubt that this has prevented my existing neck and back problems from degenerating further.

The Trap Set By the FBI For Half Life 2 Hacker

ldm Screw the HL2 source code... (637 comments)

... if this really is the guy that wrote Agobot, I'd like to see him behind bars. That has done far more damage to far more machines than simply stealing the HL2 source code; it made machines part of a huge DDoS network. God only knows what that's been used for, how many other people have had accounts compromised, etc.

Free rainbow tables looking for new admin

ldm ldm writes  |  more than 5 years ago

lee (676254) writes "After almost three years online, the admin of Free Rainbow Tables has decided to call it a day, citing a lack of time to keep it running (I'm sure that you all know a rainbow table is essentially a giant list of precomputed hashes). This is a shame, as the site is a useful resource for those occasions when you really need an existing password exposing rather than simply changing it; being a Windows admin, this site has come in very handy in the past! The currently computed tables weigh in at well over half a terabyte, are available as torrents from the site, or from a couple of mirrors (and alternatives are available). As well as being useful in that you can download your own copies of the tables, the site also has a downloadable client that'll put your idle cycles to work computing ever-greater tables, and a space-saving format for storing the tables. It's not all bad news though — he is willing to hand over source code if you wish to take over, though I suspect hosting is not included!"
