Nerd Stuff

Hey Everyone!

I have been quite busy today. Over the holidays we get a lul in the workplace. No one really wants to do anything, we have short weeks and a ton of food. That doesn’t mean that people aren’t having issues with their PCs, it just means that they don’t care enough about those issues to report them haha. After the holidays we see things spike up for a while then return to normal. Right now I would say we are in the spike up part. On top of that my co-worker and I are working on slowly (by department) implementing group policies to map network drives to all the employees. It is keeping us busy.

I have also been messing around with hacking tools on a Windows platform. Everyone always says that if you truly want to be a hacker you have to learn Linux, and while they may be correct you still have options to get and keep you interested. There are tools that you can use on a Windows platform like Metasploit that will help you ‘exploit’ weaknesses on a network and allow you to implement a backdoor into the system. There is also a  really neat tool called Wireshark, that analyzes network protocols, hacks wifi, and acts as a sniffer to capture bits of data called ‘frames’.  What is nice about Wireshark is that it works for Windows and Linux, so if you ever wanted a smooth transition into a Linux world you would instantly know how to use a tool of the trade.

Today is the day that our dining room rug is to be delivered. I can’t wait to see it and get it all laid out. We will be waiting about a week longer for the table and chairs to come but it will be nice to see some of the rooms come together in the near future. We both really want to start on the nursery for obvious reasons. The rest of my day will consist of answering some phone calls, and putting out small fires around the office. When i get home it will be time to do some laundry, if there is any, and chill for a bit.

I hope you all have had a great week so far, I know I have. I’ll see you again tomorrow! 😀 😀
