    some ideas (some useful, some well...)


    • PHPBB command line administration tool
    • A prog to email contents of /etc/passwd to an email address
    • A commandline tool for administrating MySQL users

    LOL, J. Isn't that like the software that runs by default on Windex boxen? Email all your security stuff to M$'s home base?

    Hi Kriss
    Could u tell me what is a rot13 encrypter plz?
    big_k u could work on some apps written in C or C++ too for example:
    Gabber is searching some coder and some of the newest distro are searching C coder indeed even debian (cf debian-devel list where I saw they're searching some coders to code in C (instead of perl) adduser...)
    A lot to do lol

    rot13 = a really simple encryption mechanism if you will..

    You take a characther in the alphabet and add add that number with 13. A turns out to be N and hello turns out to be uryyb

    yeah.. butthe point is to work towards something semi-useful/amusing to code in C for practice.. who cares if it's a silly encryption program? as long as you have fun doing it..
