I will be talking on 3 conferences during next month:
Maybe we could meet there 🙂
I just bought new wifi card for my desktop computer. Like in topic, it’s Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 for Desktop.
I was searching for card that:
This one is the only I found that comply my expectations.
I found time to play with `kismet` and `aircrack-ng` and it was working fine. Card works without problems on kernel 4.2.0. Highest transfer on my net I could get from my NAS – about 23 MB/s (megabytes per second) – much better than on my old N router (approx 6,5 MB/s).
Here’s information from

If you’re thinking about buying any Linux friendly AC wifi card – this one is worth it’s price.
After long break I'm thinking about writing more on my blog. I was reviewing my favorites/bookmarks and half of them was broken, so I can't rely on them in case of knowledge management.
I think I will write shorter, less descriptive articles just to be pointers to useful solutions from past.
Yesterday, my server that was hosting this website and few others for more than 5 years, simply died. I’m moving things right now to VPS service.
If you’re searching for cheap and powerfull VPS look at lowendbox.com. This site helped me most.
Sadly, I can’t run some of my websites on VPS (ex. md5crack.gagor.pl) because of their space requirements (database needs about 30GB), high CPU load and memory usage when cracking hashes. I hope to buy new hardware in month or two.
I’ve crated this blog to get feedback from other IT guys about what I’m doing wrong (or not good enough). But this idea failed…
I have only few comments on my blog (and about thousand and a half spams per month) – so, no feedback in my national language at all.
Switching to English should make my audience bigger and I hope to have more attention thanks to that. This will be also a good practice of my English skill. I hope to find enough free time to translate some of older articles, but for now I’m thinking rather about changing engine of blog – to something more convenient. Maybe Octopress or Ghost.
I hope you enjoy a little more.
