1. Writing Hacks: The Legendary Lester Dent Pulp Master Fiction Plot

    Adafruit Industries " Makers, hackers, artists, designers and engineers! | 17 Oct 2017 | 4:30pm CDT

    Language is a technology. It’s a particularly strange one that’s made of squiggles and sounds and maps of meaning, but like any other technology, it’s hackable. So’s writing. A long time ago, Lester Dent made his living writing pulp fiction. Then he wrote a formula for salable pulp stories. What is pulp fiction? From Nomadic […]...

  2. This SpongeBob SquarePants Squidward Costume Is Ready to Meet Everybody in Town

    Adafruit Industries " Makers, hackers, artists, designers and engineers! | 17 Oct 2017 | 4:00pm CDT

    Redditor netrunui’s dream cosplay is a deep cut from SpongeBob SquarePants. He’s dressed as Squidward Tentacles, a main character in the series, but Squidward’s in a salmon suit. As far as I can tell, the ensemble is a reference to a couple of lines from a single episode where SpongeBob says he wants to introduce […]...

  5. Vizio/WiFi Struggles

    RobOHara.com | 17 Oct 2017 | 7:19am CDT

    The earliest reference I can find to “PiVo,” the first PC-based DVR I built, is from 2007. Although I had ripped DVDs to my hard drive prior to 2007, after I set up PiVo, I went all in. I decided the future of home entertainment would be streaming movies, both over the internet and...

  6. The Death of a Chair

    RobOHara.com | 13 Oct 2017 | 6:06am CDT

    A common phrase among writers is “butt-in-chair” time. Websites offering writing advice are particularly fond of the phrase. At its simplest, it means to write, you have to be sitting in a chair, in front of a computer. That’s hard to do for hours on end when your chair hurts your butt after only...

    My dad used to say that slot car racing wasn’t any fun unless the cars could go fast enough to fly off the track. If the cars were permanently stuck to the track and there was no chance of them going airborne — no skill involved in keeping them on all four wheels —...

  8. Retiring from Podcasting

    RobOHara.com | 25 Sep 2017 | 6:06am CDT

    I have decided, after nine-and-a-half years, to take a semi-permanent break from podcasting. I realize that in the big scheme of things, I am nobody. For me to publicly declare my podcasting retirement is the equivalent of your drunken neighbor shouting from his window at three in the morning that he will never eat...

    My wife once told me we shouldn’t have a television in our bedroom because Oprah said so. That’s not the real reason. The real reason is because Susan can’t sleep with the television on, and it doesn’t bother me at all. If it were up to me, I’d start a movie every night before...

    Received the question about blogging. More specifically:How and WhyHow to benefit from bloggingHow to be consistent with postingIn my mind, the key to success and blogging is to be totally selfish in its planning and execution.Blogging is a personal activity/journey that you allow the public to be a part of. What I mean by this is that the main audience for your blog should be YOU. My blog is a place where I take notes and occasionally try to talk about a more touchy-feely topics or issues. Th...

    Summary of responses from this post: http://carnal0wnage.attackresearch.com/2017/06/vulnerability-disclosure-free-bug.htmlI wanted to document/summarize some of the responses I received and some of the insights I gained via self observation and my interactions with others on the topic.I received a few replies (less than I hoped for though). To summarize a few:-I'm not a greedy bastard for thinking it would "be nice" to get paid for reporting a vuln but I should not expect them.-Bug Bounty awards...

    Carnal0wnage & Attack Research Blog | 26 Jun 2017 | 8:04am CDT

    Backstory:Most of my life I've been frustrated/intrigued that my Dad was constantly upset that he would "do the right thing" by people and in return people wouldn't show him gratitude... up to straight up fucking him over in return. Over and over the same cycle would repeat of him doing right by someone only to have that person not reciprocate.The above is important as it relates to the rest of the post and topic(s).I was relaying some frustrations to a close non-infosec friend about my experien...

    Carnal0wnage & Attack Research Blog | 20 Jun 2017 | 5:54pm CDT

Falls es jemanden interessiert, ich bin ja Fan des Uferwegs (beispielhaft rudimentär am Verdi-Gebäude umgesetzt), erinnert mich an das Pariser Seine-Ufer. An den Berges de Seine als ein wirklich nutzbarer öffentlicher Raum modernisiert,...
