Hackaday Links


though we may be hackers in one way or another, we still must think of the ones who put us here..
…so, a huge happy mother’s day to all and go spend time with your mother or at the very least, call them up and let them know that my birthday is friday how much you love them!

now that the links are off the grill and onto your plate, let’s see if you can stomach the fact that google probably got hacked, but they claim it was a DNS error (read: something bad happened)

this has to be one of the best things yet. remember that talking parrot at the toy store you’d always go up to and whisper some expletive in it’s ear? well now you can make it gawk away from the web.

who thought a worm could be responsible for 5% of all e-mail out there

and we end this mother’s day with what else: another exploit found in Mozilla browsers.

hot links tomorrow and by looking at the weather for this week, we might be in for some very lazy afternoons.

  1. Even though you will probably delete this comment once again.. here’s an excerpt of the original article.

    “The Sober.P worm is still spreading fast and made up almost 5 percent of all e-mail traffic on Friday morning, according to a U.K. antivirus company.”

    And yes, I still think it’s bad journalism not to verify the sources. And no, it’s nothing personal.

  2. The “web parrot” isn’t anything super new, just a nice front end to it. I had something very similiar working back in ’97 when I had my webcam up and running in my house. I had the camera remote controlled via the web and a speaker connected to it. The operator could control the camera via the web, which would send signals to the pan/tilt control via serial signals and a perl script, and also play out any type of text typed in by the user through another perl script. It was always a joy to hear “get up you lazy sack” in the middle of the night by a psuedo british (the accent I picked) female computer voice.
