Posted the wrong thing before.

As part of my learning experience, I've been using TiddlyWiki, a great tool to keep notes (it's essentially a single-html file Wiki app).

my website, shayshaked.com, includes a blog which has the somewhat more "human" and, you can say, "user friendly" posts, and then there's SSTech, where I dive right into stuff that I do and how I use it.

I am not an expert, but I enjoy exploring. I sometimes to the hard, long way, just because I want to learn how something works. I recently updated the Wiki with a nmap section, where I explain how I used it at work. To see this part, you need to nevigatge to my wiki (http://www.shayshaked.com/TW/SSTech.html) and then find the "Using Nmap Example" link under MacOS on the nav bar to the right.

Any feedback is welcome. I'm open to criticism as well (even though I hope at least some positive feedback...). The IPs in this post have been changed.

So eh, enjoy? And thanks!

Hi! I know this is not exactly the community, but I was hoping to get a direction to the right one.. many of you are at least familiar with someone who dealt with this.

Thank you in advance! 
Hello! Today I have a question for those of you in religious schools who fall into the non-profit category.

First: does Google offer non-profit (= free) services to religious institutions?

Second: the whole TechSoup thing... did you register? Is that the only way to gain it? What can you share about the process?

Third: when approved, who did you contact to install infrastructure (network, cables, equipment, etc.), and, is there a way to reach out to chromebook vendors where you get a discount?

I know these are huge questions! Just trying to figure out what can be done. Thanks!

This is Exactly why the Government Must Not Have Access to Smart Phones

"It's important to demonstrate that when you create these tools, they will make it out. History should make that clear," the hacker had said. 

Now imagine what would happen if Apple was legally obligated to create a special opening (called backdoor) to all of its iPhones. This hacker would now have the ability to access your bank account, address, your children names and the schools they go to. The company who created the hacking tools (which it sold to the FBI) has also sold the same tools to other governments, like Turkey and Russia. 
 
Remember the silly propaganda like campaign the CIA and the NSA desperately spammed all over the news, telling us the Russians hacked us? Well, the Russians don't need to work that hard. They just need to pay the same guys the US government pays for. 
 
With Trump as the president and Giuliani as a cyber-security, we might soon see a push toward such legal constraints toward Apple and Google, the world dominating smartphone makers. Such tools will be created, and then end up falling into the wrong hands. 
Hacking tools are weapons, and just like there's a bit underground market for guns, there's a big market for hacking tools. There's a whole world out there of hacking groups making millions for zero-day exploits. We must not make it easier for them.

Some Tech Rants

All politics and no fun? Nah, doesn't sound like me.

So Apple surprised everyone included Wall Street with the earnings from the iPhone 7. What does it mean?
 
 
>
 
a.) Personally, I don't get it. I mean I do.. but also I don't. The iPhone 7 is a big compromise in terms of hardware. But, people buy what they are used to and people are used to Apple. the new Macs are horrible compared to what Apple used to make in the past (I work with Macs every day all day) but they are still grabbed like there's no tomorrow. For even more money. 
>
>b.) Becuase this is encouraging Apple to continue with its strategy, I think we're going to keep seeing after-thought designed new Macs. The only sure thing is that the new iPhone is going to be good (arguably) because that's where their effort is. Apple's core services, like Photos, Contacts, the App Store, iCloud -- these are a mess compare to the competition. Do you use Itunes or Spotify? iCloud or Dropbox? Mail or Gmail? Come on now. 
>
>So people like me who just scratch their head and get a good deal for $30 - $40 a month will keep doing just that, and those who have a contract with Verizon for over $100 a month will stand in line for the next iPhone and shell out even more money. Oh well.

LastPass - Make it a 2007 Resolution

I decided to write a piece about why LastPass is one of the best decisions you can meke for 2007. I'm assuming most of you already know/use a password manager, but in case you don't...

Just starting another website...

Hey all, I have a new site, shayshaked.com. Domain has been mine for a while, but I lately decided to shut down SquareSpace and go back to "regular" which gives me the ability to use different tools: Wordpress, TiddlyWiki, Google Apps, and more.

Check it out!

*Testing Personal Tech Wiki - Feedback Wanted! *

Hello all,

I've had my personal Wiki for about a year, and I've used it (among other things) to record some of the technical notes. I decided to post it on my website in the spirit of free sharing tips and tricks and also, well, it's a lot of fun.

Would you mind taking a minute to view the Wiki? It doesn't have a lot of content yet? I'm particularly worried some sensitive data might have "slipped," I have checked a couple of times and had a couple of eyes looking at it, but nothing like eyes of a trained expert, right?

While at it, feel free to give me your feedback about the Wiki itself: do you think this is a useful tool for a knowledgebase? What do you like about it, what don't you like about it?

The wiki is built entirely in javascript and HTML, so you could save a copy (if you'd like) and mess with it as much as you want on your own machine. Have a go!

Thanks in advance!!
