I'm planning on either writing this up in detail or maybe doing a screencast about screencasting, but I'll give a short version here.

On sound quality:

This matters a lot. In decreasing order of importance:

  1. Remove echo. You have to hear this to understand. Set up a mic in front of your mouth and record a sentence. Then, put a thick comforter over you and the mic and say it again at the same distance. Listen to

OpenWrt support for Netgear WNR1000v2
View README.md

Install

As usual, use it at your own risk. I am not to be held responsible for your actions.

Supported devices: WNR1000v2 (tested by me), WNR1000v2-VC (provided by Comcast for free; tested by Douglas Fraser)

Notice: Upgrade WNR1000v2 to the latest factory firmware: 1.1.2.58. Otherwise, the power LED may not behave properly.

You need to place the device into failsafe mode. For booting into failsafe mode, you need to power up the device while holding the reset button with a pin. The power LED should have an amber colour. Hold the button until it is starting to flash green. It starts to flash green after it flashes the amber LED for six times. After that, the device is in failsafe mode, accepting a firmware via its TFTP server. The device should respond to pings at 192.168.1.1, although the responses may be malformed.

My OSX PF config for #30C3.

My OS X “VPN only” Setup For #30C3

You should never let passwords or private data be transmitted over an untrusted network (your neighbor’s, the one at Starbucks or the company) anyway, but on a hacker congress like the #30C3, this rule is almost vital.

Hackers get bored easily, and when they’re bored, they’re starting to look for things to play with. And a network with several thousand connected users is certainly an interesting thing to play with. Some of them might start intercepting the data on the network or do other nasty things with the packets that they can get.

If these packets are encrypted, messing with them is much harder (but not impossible! – see the end of this article). So you want your packets to be always encrypted. And the best way to do that is by using a VPN.
