Incheon, Korea (near Seoul)

Flight was good. Good food, Good service. I’m very happy with korean Airlines, and I’d travel with them again, just maybe not from Toronto to Brisbane (Brisbane to Toronto, however, was flawless, arguably the best flight I’ve ever taken in my life).

These are pictures of the free Hotel room Korean Air set me up with. I had to wait 16 hours for my next flight. They provided me with a free lunch coupon, but I got hungry by 7:00 AM and just looked for a decent local joint to satisfy my kimchee and bibimbap craving.

Excuse the poor quality pics – they were taken with my laptop’s webcam.

Saturday night is Poker night

I’m having some people over on Saturday night for a social poker game. I already bought food and snacks, they were on sale last week. Since I couldn’t bring my own poker chips (they weight a tonne), I borrowed some from a friend, but they are only 100! Which means, if there are 10 people, only 10 chips each! Not even CLOSE to enough for a game. I might need 300 or so. I will see if I can buy then return, but that won’t be likely. i’ll just buy and keep very cheap ones. Cards aren’t a problem, I have my own Copags. Chairs could be an issue, but I’ll borrow from the downstairs neighbours just in case there aren’t enough.

Computer Forensics

I am presently working on an assigment I have due on Sunday. It involves located and recoving 9 illegal images from a 256 flash drive image. The image was passed through FTK (Forensics ToolKit) and about 6 images were recovered easily. Another one which took some effort, was only a duplicate of another one already discovered. One more was steganographically hidden, and using stegbreak I discovered the password PANDA. JpHS was used to open the image and separate the two images from each other revealing another illegal image. 8 in total, and I stuggle to find the last one.

News update for 19 March

Homework is catching up with me, but I really like it like that. I’ve got cryptography maths to sort through (I’m a bit slow at maths), I’ve got assignments in Security to submit Friday. My Project Management class has an group assignment due Wednesday, and my group has not yet submitted everything to me so I can stitch all the disparate parts together. Finally, in Forensics class, we have not yet received our assignments, so I’m still waiting there.

What disappoints me is that the assignments ought to be there from Day 1. Continue reading
