Recently Lots of people ave been asking about using autopwn in Metasploit. It used to be that it used a Sqlite3 database however the folks over at Metasploit say it is unstable and we should use Postgress.

This afternoon I was working on calculating dial-up costs for a specific company who uses dial-up connections for thousands of devices at customer premises. One of the dial-up providers is Earthlink who doesn’t provide an easy method to export dial-up connection details to XLS or even to text so I had to copy/paste the dial-up specifics to a file and run calculations on that file. One of the problems with doing this when copying and pasting to a text file every other line was blank so I decided to try to use Notepad++ to get rid of every other line. Below are instructions on how to do this with Notepad++.
Today I had to use iRdesktop on my iPhone to perform some tasks on a Windows 7 computer at my house via a Remote Desktop Connection. The iRdesktop application allows you to make connections to Windows Remote Desktop on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

After some playing around with the application I figured out how to right click from within the iRdesktop application. Below there is more information on how to right-click using iRdesktop on your Apple iDevice.
We have a Sharp XE-A203 cash register in the shop and haven’t really ever spent the time to configure it all the way. We were pretty amazed when we downloaded the XE-A203 manual and skimmed over it to see what the capabilities of the XE-A203 device were. You can program the XE-A203 cash register to do all sorts of stuff including employee data, department data, etc. There is even a power save mode on this cash register. We rarely deal in cash so we are always clicking a single button to open the register and put receipts or checks underneath the inside cash drawer. The problem with that though is every single time the drawer was opened a receipt was printed thus wasting paper. Below is information about how to configure the XE-A203 cash register to not print a receipt every time the CA/AT/NS button is pressed.
