Soldering your own 6502 together: Ben Hack creating an Apple I, others doing NINA65, Loom 6502, etc.

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/17

Some great links posted last week by mos6502 about soldering your own 6502 based computer.

The videos are of Ben Heck building an Apple I replica. But others did similar builing of NINA65, Loom 6502 and others.

Great viewing those links and videos.

Introducing nogotofail—a network traffic security testing tool for TLS/SSL – via: Google Online Security Blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/07

Great! And it is open source at

The Android Security Team has built a tool, called nogotofail, that provides an easy way to confirm that the devices or applications you are using are safe against known TLS/SSL vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. Nogotofail works for Android, iOS, Linux, Windows, Chrome OS, OSX, in fact any device you use to connect to the Internet.

There’s an easy-to-use client to configure the settings and get notifications on Android and Linux, as well as the attack engine itself which can be deployed as a router, VPN server, or proxy.

Max OS X: Tunderbolt Ethernet trouble shooting (via: Ask Different)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/10/20

Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet AdapterEvery once in a while my Gigabit Thunderbolt Ethernet adapter would show this in the Network Settings:

Status: Cable Unplugged Either the cable for Thunderbolt Ethernet is not plugged in or the device at the other end is not responding.

That’s not much use: it does not tell if the Thunderbolt or the Ethernet side has a problem.

Luckily, the How to force Thunderbolt-ethernet connection when switching networks without restarting computer? at Ask Different indicates the System Information will give you more information about the Thunderbolt side of things. Read the rest of this entry »
