Hyd yo kids, hyd yo wives, and hyd errything behind yo images!

•August 9, 2011 • 8 Comments

I sometimes enjoy messing with files, binary-ly. Many times I end up having chunks of binary files that are meaningless which once were texts, images, and archives. Though last time, I decided to get something out of the act.

I’ll be honest and tell you that at the moment I remembered Antoine Dodson and his advice to humanity “Hyd yo kids, hyd yo wives, and hide yo husbands”. That gave me the idea of hiding files behind other files.

The idea is not securing or locking files, GPG can do that perfectly, the idea is hiding it. Meaning that if one takes the cover off, one will probably see it! Though hiding files might be useful in some cases.

A quick real-life example: One person is refilling his fountain pen in his room and accidentally squirted his wall with the black ink. He brings in an extremely interesting painting/poster and covers the mess. Now, the mess still exists and can be seen once the cover is taken off. This approach is safe and practical whereas locking the room might bring suspicions and curiosity.

Caution: if (self.fearOfLongTexts): exit(); else: continue;

Some of them are quite tools!

How much are you dependent on productivity online services and tools? For how long can you work productively without internet connectivity? Nice questions, eh? Well, if you said “Not dependent” or “Forever”, I salute you, buddy.

So what is it that today’s internet provides besides Trolls? Almost everything, from tips on buying PC’s to books on system hacking to videos on GTK programming to online tools. Screw the first three, let’s focus on “online tools”, online services, and cloud computing.

If you’re a person who says “tl;dr”, don’t click!

“I LIVE AGAIN!” — Future Cop LAPD

… Did you too think I was dead? Two guys actually told me -in the face- that they thought that I died in real life. Well, I am alive – unless if this blog-post was scheduled. But believe me, I’m alive (proof: 2.6.39.1 on Jun, 3rd).

Any reader would probably ask: Where the heck were you all that time? My answer would be: In a grave, dead; I was a ghost, I could see you but not vice versa. Wait, … am I contradicting my own words? Okay, let me put it this way, I was adj(internet) dead then became an online ghost.

It’s true that I, many times, peeked, but I wasn’t active like I used to be (obviously). I only checked emails, read Q8Geeks blog-posts, uploaded some photos/digital artwork. I was trying to avoid interacting with online communities as much as possible.

Srambler v1.0, because he wanted one!

Years ago, my brother, Q8BKman, and I were watching National Treasure 1 on TV. Everything was cool till the scene where they were hacking their way in; their method got them a set of keys that the password is made of. In the movie, they had a made up application that would let the user enter those letters and it would get you the possible words made of them. That is what my brother liked and wanted!

Here’s the exact clip I mentioned: ClickMe!

A Chatroulette-like website

Usually every once in a while, a friend tells you about another online service and suggests that you take a look at it! I was suggested to take a look at Omegle.com, being told that it’s a text-based Chatroulette-like website where trolling is something common!

I always leave these kinds of suggestions to the time when I get really bored. The time came, and I’ve been unleashed! First thing I realized is that the majority of the community are perverts seeking for perverted chitchats! However, there’s also another group which just wants to waste time and have fun and/or trolling! Although I was disgusted, I though a place like this should be investigated.

I might not watch Tron: Legacy!

Tron got in Kuwait theaters a short while ago and ever since then friends kept suggesting me to watch it! I know Tron, I know what it’s about, and I know how much I will enjoy it since it’s geeky movie! However, there is one thing that keeps me from watching it – although I’m dying to watch it, Going Electronic: Enter Kay!
