Define a True Geek(81 posts)
jack, that's my credit card number! Don't post that! :-)
Hashing algorithms like MD5 are supposed to be one way only, so you can't decode them. However, I have heard that there are attacks for MD5 and it is considered by some to be partially insecure. So, if you can read it, you are a cracker. Or a security analyst. How do you crack it?
Oh, and since Lighthouse brought it up, WEP is really, really insecure so never use it unless you have no choice. These days if you forget a WEP password, it's faster to crack it than reset it.
Rainbow tables? Oh, come on. Any true geek worth his salt can work around that. (get it?) ¡Gracias, Señor Geek!
Lighthouse, what is the territory where you have to use WEP? BTW, we've hijacked your thread. Mwahaha!
I guess there really is no uncrackable crypto, only crypto that hasn't been cracked yet.
What's a true geek? Me. I'm a geek. Let me say it again:
* Yo no soy marinero, soy geek
* Je suis geek (tres chic!)
* Ich bin ein geek, ich bin nicht ein Berliner.
* Geekito ergo sum
Pardon my French (and German, and Spanish, and Latin)
I have it: the answer is 42.
After all, this is the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. The definition of a true geek must be in there somewhere.
Lighthouse, so if you hadn't mentioned 42, that would be the correct answer? I think you are making up the rules to this so-called "contest" as we go along. Your $100 is very safe.
