Kano: hi Deanjo , did you find an option to show normal hdparm results?
Deanjo: No Kano, I didn't bother, because despite what you think, getting the same results across multiple OS's, on multiple boards, on multiple chipsets, with multiple tests (hdparm,sisoft,hdtach) I'll believe believe the results are correct.
Kano: Deanjo: you can be sure they are incorrect
Deanjo: I can be sure that they are correct.
Kano: nope, your hd was never that fast
Deanjo: believe what you want
Kano: i know, i dont believe
Kano: ubuntu must be really unstable, or lightrush ;)
lightrush: I am trying to make Xinerama work the way I want
Kano: maybe use weechat in screen ;)
lightrush: ok NVIDIA's xinerama extension sux
lightrush: as soon as I turned regular one on - everything worx as expected
lightrush: any idea why Alt-tab refuses to work ?
khaije1: lightrush: if u use compiz u should check the config
khaije1: anyone know how opensync shakes out, or relates to conduit? that might be an interesting article comparing synchronization options and such
lightrush: I use metacity + xinerama and alt-tab does nothing
lightrush: other combos with Alt work
khaije1: not sure, does metacity have a hotkey config option?
lightrush: only u can change the key to move windows
lightrush: its weird - once xinerama is off - everything is back to normal
lightrush: it is not mapping
khaije1: i'm not rly familiar w/ xinerama, is that analogous to compiz?
Kano: michaellarabel: do you want to know, when splashtop is a REAL security hole?
mha: when you use it to extract your precious crypto keys from RAM after a reboot
Kano: as long it is running you can access the drives via a running http server at port 1080!!!!!
Kano: very nice without a router
mha: what does a router have to do with anything?
Kano: everybody can look at your data
Kano: with direct connection
mha: do you mean without a firewall/packet filter device?
mha: pretty much all computers on the internet are reached via routers
redeeman: he means people without NAT
mha: and your NAT-gw at home is not as a definition a router
mha: it's a NAT-gateway
redeeman: a router merely routes packages :)
Kano: you dont need a router for cable modems and splashtop has pppoe config tool too
Kano: you can access the usb stick and the drive where splashtop is installed
Kano: when you used the win installer
Kano: you can basically browse the whole partition
maligor: what's this turned to... a splashtop ad?
Kano: you can not access winhdd when booted from usb,but when you used the win installer
Kano: and thats a MAJOR security hole in what they call express gate lite
Kano: not a small, a really huge one
Kano: at least you can access usb data
Kano: when you modded it try localhost:1080,or check from other pc
Kano: at least 22.214.171.124 has that problem
Kano: do you see what i mean
Kano: that was completely unmodded
redeeman: yeah i understand it perfectly
Kano: reinstalled without any of my mods
redeeman: all you need now is for it to automagically call to a webservice to log the url
redeeman: and asus to start leeching automagically :)
redeeman: that'd be so fun
Kano: i tested 126.96.36.199 in win first, there was no apache running, but at least 188.8.131.52 has it active
Kano: i guess i should add nmap ;)
Kano: well there are live cds with ssh running and known user/login
redeeman: that seems unwise
Kano: but when they market this thing as save variant to surf the web and so such major faults..
Ivanovic: hey, it is save
Ivanovic: asus will even check your comp for you!
Kano: i would say thats worst case for splashtop ;)
Ivanovic: this is just the start of a great freature
Ivanovic: that is: it will allow the whole community to scan your system for malicious programs
michaellarabel: Kano, can you resend pic?
Ivanovic: a great step forwards in regards to security
DaskReecH: anyone can point me to some good articles on Cinema 2.0 and Fusion?
Kano: michaellarabel: with 184.108.40.206 i did not see a running apache at that port,but with 1.2.31
Kano: but will do portscan ;)
DaskReecH: gentooer: Which distro do you use?
michaellarabel: Kano, DeviceVM is investigating the hole
Kano: sure, then they could verifiy it ;)
michaellarabel: Yeah, had just communicated with them
Kano: in the meantime just boot one of your boards with it
Kano: michaellarabel: it is partly open on 220.127.116.11
Kano: when you know the filename
Kano: the server runs,just listing is blocked
Kano: redeeman: the problem is in 18.104.22.168 too, just without file listing
Kano: is always there ;)
Kano: well you could get the whole system registry too *g*
Kano: hopefully with some serials ;)
sabbath: hello all
Kano: hi sabbath
sabbath: hi Kano:) i just read ur topics, u did great job
Kano: yes, some problems are solved with 22.214.171.124 but basically the use of a webserver is not really a good idea. it is only used as picture viewer anyway
Kano: the pic viewer is just firefox pointing on a local url
Kano: 126.96.36.199 had upnp running too, but dont know what do to with that ;)
sabbath: yy okie but at first i have to dload some image of this OS :D
sabbath: anyone have link to that?
Kano: michaellarabel: i am looking forward to see the next splashtop blog entry ;)
DaskReecH: I want to get a splashtop AMD Mobo :(
DaskReecH: finding it hard to locate one
Kano: you can run it with any new board, at least with many of em
Kano: just fetch splashtop from those boards as download
Kano: if you have it running in a virtual machine with added xterm looking into /etc/models.d wil show you some ;)
Kano: or i can give you that too
netsurf3: anyone having perculuar ati activity with the new drivers
netsurf3: i get instability but things that it does work on are bloody fast
Kano: well for wine i prefer 8-5
netsurf3: 160fps as opposed to a normal 20
netsurf3: xpress 1100
Kano: what a card ;)
netsurf3: its a horific piece of cat spew
Kano: at least you can add a nvidia pci-e card ;)
netsurf3: how? its a laptop
netsurf3: spooky glitch on splashtop btw kano :)
