Did you come back to make a single post? >.>


#97250 I return - An introduction likely needed.

Posted by K_N on 22 November 2015 - 02:56 AM

I don't believe I've graced these forums with my presence for some years now. There's a few thousand more members then back when I joined, so I may as well start over.


Hello dear forumites!


I am K_N, I am a software developer and infosec analyst from Phoenix, Arizona.


I am a big fan of butts, I am 2 meters tall and built like a grizzly bear.


That's all you really need to know about me.

Had my first girlfriend at 15. It was awkward, she cheated and as far as I know contracted HIV, never confirmed that, but I never had anything physical with her because I was too awkward at the time.


Dated a 28 year old for a while at 16. That was.... weird.


Had a series of short term infatuations and a couple online "relationships" if you could call them that.


Eventually I started talking to someone I'd lost touch with that I'd met online and discovered we had a whole lot in common, and that she was adorable ( and slightly evil ). We sort of fell into a relationship for a year and a half, had some troubles and broke up over a few months, then got back together and I eventually moved to be with her. I think it's been going on 4 or 5 years now, we just recently moved into our second home together and it will most likely last until one of us is assassinated by ninjas.

#44091 Hacking

Posted by K_N on 25 February 2013 - 04:12 AM

Malware has very little to do with hacking.

That point aside, there is no middle ground as far as I'm concerned. You either have permission, or disclose what you find to the operator of the software, or you're doing wrong.

White hat is a viable industry and one that those of us working in IT rely on every day.

There's no such thing as "grey hat" hacking - either you're breaking someone's shit without permission, or with permission. It's just a term black hat hackers use to justify doing shit that no one really cares about and pretending it's legal.

Black hat hacking is just the same as any other crime.

That is not what I meant to post. I'm leaving it there though.

#39840 Engine

Posted by K_N on 29 January 2013 - 09:04 PM

I don't recommend using an engine until you have a very solid grasp on the language, or you're going to end up hitting very hard, very frustrating roadblocks.

I would however, recommend learning basic C++, and then learning something like the SDL library, which provides image, animation, audio, video and OpenGL layers for you to use.

Here is a beginner's tutorial on SDL - If you have a mind for OOP Development, you may be able to pick it up with no prior knowledge of C++. I'd still recommend learning the basics first.

#39437 Dice roller for the boards

Posted by K_N on 27 January 2013 - 12:24 PM

Pretty easily done, actually. If it doesn't already exist, I could implement it in a couple minutes time.

You could just use this function on reading posts so people can do [roll]12[/roll] for a 12 sided die.

function dice_roll($post_text, $user) {
if(strpos($post_text, '[roll]') {
	$start = strpos($post_text, '[roll]');
	$end = strpos($post_text, '[/roll]');
	$roll = substr($post_text, $start, ($end - $start));
	if(is_numeric($roll) {
		$result = mt_rand(1, $roll);
		$roll_text = $user . ' rolled a ' . $roll . ' sided die and got ' . $result;
		$post_text = str_replace('\[roll\][0-9]+\[/roll\]', $roll_text, $post_text);
	} else {
		return $post_text
} else {
	return $post_text
Haven't had my coffee, so not the most efficient job and the regex is probably wrong, but you get the idea....

Usage would be just to run this function on the post body before echoing it. Could also stick a while loop in it to catch every die roll in the post instead of one.

#37733 Freedom of information?

Posted by K_N on 16 January 2013 - 03:39 AM

If I spend a million dollars conducting a study the results should be mine to do what I please with. Would the right/ethical thing to do be to openly distribute this? Of course. Should anyone be forced to disclose this kind of thing? Nah, I don't think so.

The problem with that line of thinking is that nearly all of the research contained in the JSTOR database is publicly funded. It comes from taxpayers in the majority, the minor portion comes from the university.

In other words, we, the public spent millions to conduct the research and are not being allowed to see it.

So I worked an 11 hour shift my first day. I didn't have to, but I wanted to get the codebase I was working on solid before I left. It felt like 2 hours. It was awesome. I love this.
