Milkymist 0.3 release announcement

It is with great excitement that I am announcing the release of Milkymist 0.3. This release marks a significant milestone for the project: since now, it’s no longer tens of thousands of lines of code for nerds only. It’s also an actual MilkDrop implementation, rendering good-looking visual effects that EVERYBODY can appreciate. But, see for yourself. If you have a Xilinx ML401 board, grab your JTAG cable and fetch a

Police raid in hack labs? is it still the 80s?

Disturbing, this is the most appropriate word. It feels like the 80s again. When the hackers were the big bad people in politician’s, media’s, general public’s… and police officers’ heads. A swedish hackerspace was raided last week, for no apparent valid reason (illegal bar investigation in a punk concert next door, and they came with IT experts and seized computers..). Is swedish administration so retarded that it didn’t evolve and

New code at /tmp/lab: ss7calc

You certainly know about ipcalc, this simple but pretty utility that enables people to calculate netmasks and IP addresses notations easily? What about ss7calc (download)… Well, to start with, SS7 is even more complicated than IP netmasks. SS7 is the network protocol that enable you to send SMS, to receive calls on your mobile and even to change location while staying on the line. But SS7 “addresses” are not like

Workshop announce : BootstrapPIC

Summary The goal of this workshop is to build and burn the usbpicprog PIC burner, using nothing but resources available at the /tmp/lab (excepted the electronic components, of course). As you can see, this burner uses a PIC, meaning we need a PIC burner to build the device. Depending on the available resources, we’ll use a pre existing PIC burner or we’ll build a JDM burner to burn the first

HostileWRT presented at Hack.lu

This week, HostileWRT is going to be presented during Hack.lu in Luxembourg. Eugene Parkinson and Philippe Langlois will be presenting on Thursday 29.10.2009 their new development on their “Fully-Automated Wireless Security Audit Platform on Embedded Hardware” and will release HostileWRT version 0.5.0 for the conference.

Looking for multimedia artists

We are looking for multimedia (mostly graphics) artists for a democompo project. You do not need to have an expert level in programming to participate (if your only contribution is good looking bitmap images, that’s already a lot!), even though a little background is advisable if you want to do animated thingies or some rendered effects (we could help you however). This mini-project consists in developing a compo on the

FPGA Workshop 4: Behind the Scenes (November 8)

DESCRIPTION In the previous workshops, we have seen that FPGAs can emulate any logic circuit without moving (mechanical) parts. FPGAs are however not magic nor mystical devices and this workshop will shed light on how they work internally. After theoretical explanations on their functioning, we will program them very close to the “bare silicon” by configuring manually each logic element on the chip, without any Verilog or schematics. This will
