28 August 2006


Just had a nightmare. I don't remember much, but I remember that there was a woman, and she was some sort of time paradox. If I were to encounter her, it would somehow erase my own history--I'd never have existed.

I woke up, and she was standing in my room, talking to me.

That's when I actually woke up, because I think I was moaning and crying out.

What do you do when even your nightmares are stupid?

Defeating locks by 'bumping'

This is probably one of the most interesting things I've read in a while. It's about defeating consumer-grade locks with a method called 'bumping', which I guess is somewhat similar to picking, but supposedly faster and more reliable. Assuming the accuracy of the article, it's scary how easily these locks can be nondestructively defeated.


At any rate, I learned a lot about how locks work.
