    Hmmm, looks like it's time to start shopping for used cf, sd, and memory sticks on flea-bay again.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    ...this information can be turned off. Which is kind of a smart thing to do.


    excellent read, AA.
    thanks for your time.

    Nice read, very hefty tool. But the question is, what is the line between investigating and stalking ?

    Well IANAL so it's hard telling. My best guess would be it depends on many factors, such as local, state, and federal laws, country notwithstanding.

    Yeah, there are a lot of tools that many dont' realize are included I have stumbled on some of them myself. Most people seem to see the big three or four (MSF, SET, Aircrack-ng) and think that's it.
    But glad you guys enjoyed it.

    Nice article. It is always amazing to see how much can really be discovered with something so small.
