Apparently, and I have no reason to doubt it, I have, in my room, a connection to the UCC network. That should be fun to explore I was told that it was a satellite connection, but that seems a little over the top to connect to a network that’s less than a mile away. I’m guessing it’s wireless. Possibly… that might be my link to the internet as well… Hm. Fast + Always On = droool.
I’ve been working on securing my own little network, exchanging telnet with ssh, and turning off unnecessary services. There’s some I can’t figure out, but in time I’m sure (How often do I say that, and how often does it become true? Lets see, GDAM, no. MOL, no. DRI… no. Do I suck or am I just lazy?) I’m sure there’s lots of other stuff I should do too. Lots. I don’t want to mention them, because then I’ll just feel bad when I don’t do them.
I’ve been messing around with nmap and ethereal a bit. They’re great fun! I can’t wait to unleash them on the internet.
Gonna buy me a webcam too. A cheapo one. Hopefully it’ll work.
