Windows 7 is identical to KDE4?

February 7, 2009 – 17:37 by Adnan Hodzic

Since everybody and everything keeps talking about Windows 7, here's what I've got to say :) I said it tons of times, that new Windows looks is identical to one if KDE4 (posts: Gnome vs KDE … after release of KDE 4 and KDE 4) Nevethless, these guys went a step further with this same thought, Is it Windows 7 or KDE 4?

Zeitgeist Addendum

February 4, 2009 – 14:39 by Adnan Hodzic

I've been using this day to chill, go over some movies and such, neverthless Zeitgeiest Addendum, for all the fans, I just thought you might want to know something: From: Adnan Hodzic <adnan@> Date: Wed, Feb 4, 2009 at 11:06 AM Subject: Few technology questions from a "fan" To: Hello, I've been watching and been enjoying it. But, now in Zeitgeist Addendum I've come across a thing I cannot simple pass by. If I haven't made it clear so far, I'm not a "standard" critic, I'm more of a guy who pretty much diggs your stories, since I myself have come to pretty much same conclusion on most of the things you're talking about in Zeitgeist. But without further ado, here's my question, in Addendum at the end of the movie (1:55:39) where you're saying what we (the people) should do to prevent what's going on, you mention from quitting our job to what to watch and what not to watch, and it's all ...

Live Linux today

February 2, 2009 – 21:42 by Adnan Hodzic

Since, from time to time I use FoolControl as my best hate catalyst ... well I'm gonna go ahead and hate one of the things I love the most. Couple of years ago, I did one pretty unusual thing, my hdd died and I didn't swap "my computers", instead I actually powered it on without hdd using live linux distributions and used my usb stick to imitate my hard drive. Since it took awhile to get my new hdd, I went through many live linux distros and what I did is I tested their uptime :) Now I thought I had these results recorded/stored somewhere, but sadly couldn't find them. All I can remember is that among many I think Knoppix scored the best results and managed to stay up for 8 days. I disliked Knoppix back then and I still dislike it today, but I remember at the time I was ...

Ok, after my post about Forum, take two, soon enough I got pissed off and completely removed the forum, including database. There are two reasons I acted the way I did, first one is that there was not enough of traffic and I had to keep coming back to see if anything is new and moderate it. Second reason is that I actually dedicated one (hidden) part of the forum to the university it club, so ... I didn't like that. So I pretty much snapped and removed everything, havoc :) But after I see (from your comments) that there's still need for the same, forum is back up, with new database so you'll have to everybody will have to register agian. Also let me note that this reason is up because Reece (Rolyin) agreed to help out and he'll be moderating it, thanks! :) In case he decides to quit his position, ...

Social engineering and networking, exploited

January 27, 2009 – 16:23 by Adnan Hodzic

This topic has been "looping" inside of my head since April, 2008. During DORCS/CLUC on one of the breaks between the lectures, few of us engaged into a pretty elaborative discussion regarding Social Engineering and the Internet itself. Main points of the whole discussion was ... do the kids, the users of those same "social engineering" sites actually realize that all their data remains stored on someones server, even after they have removed their account couple of years later, once they have figured what an ass they were; probably still are, just in different form. How or has internet changed? In beginning of mine "internet career" (late 90s) there was this merely dark but comforting place. To best describe it I'd like to use some of the words other then my own: "Back in the old, dark days of the internet when men were men, women were men and children were FBI agents, no ...
