I don't think its possible for my head or ego to swell any more than it is right now!!
I can't believe those old and outdated videos are still helping people today! Thats great!
I have found that when new people are exposed to something they don't fully understand, and they don't get it working they way "it should"..people will become frustrated easily or worse...just give up. Thats who I designed those videos for. The COMPLETE no0b. Knowing what your working with, the mechanics behind, and WHY it works in a specefic way is the only way to truly "master" anything.
And your absolutely right .K.S. I did make those videos for you...And for You people reading this right now. I don't really think that what I showed everyone was really that great, but apparently it has helped several thousands of people (if not more). I see my videos posted on you-tube, others security sites all the time,...and yea...it does make me feel "popular" and makes me feel very appreciated and needed, but that wasn't the purpose of the videos. Its purpose was to "enlighten" and guide people who were frustrated,...cause I saw "those other videos" posted speratically over the web,... that quite honestly...they all just sucked. It was like all they were doing was a "speed competition" on who could crack WEP the fastest. No one taught how to do it though...and I wanted to be known as a "teacher". And I believe I accomplished that...thanks to people like you .K.S. Yes, BT was meant for people with experience with Linux and preferably people with pentesting knowledge, but lets face it....I'd dare to say that 60% of all of our new members had no clue what Linux was or how to use it. Believe it or not, just under a year ago..I was one of these ignorant people.
And your right..I'm not always going to be here...I just came back to stop in to say hi to everyone. Ive been away for a month...and I'm not always going to be around like I use to be. Hell, I could even drop dead before I push the Submit reply button! But...I'm not the only one here who likes to help others and to help the average everyday noob. There are SEVERAL people here more than willing to help out their fellow pentesters. SEVERAL.
Thank you very much for lifting my spirits.K.S. I really needed this after the day I've had today.
