Production Note

We’re very close to going HD now. We have most of the equipment we need. Hopefully by the end of October :) More details.

Show Notes

Chris Gerling describes how we can use the Windows Automated Installation Kit, a free download from Microsoft, to build our own bootable Windows USB key. This tool is great for repairing borked PCs, more securely accessing a public computer, or installing Windows on optical drive-less ultra portables. Submitted by Moonlit – Show Notes.

Darren Kitchen brings La Fonera hacking with a geek friendly cartoon. This simple 20 step guide will have your Fon unlocked and running Jasager in no time! (Pineapples and battle armor optional) Step by Step guide

Christine Bourquin demos a nifty little Windows app that turns your desktop into four independent spaces on a 3D cube. Kinda like Compiz for Windows. Check out DeskSpace and it’s free alternative.

Matt Lestock demos DimDim, a web-based collaboration platform that offers media-rich features. It’s a open source “WebEx” alternative that’ll blow your mind. Run it either hosted or install it on your own servers. SysAdmins look out, this little gem will be wowing your boss so sneak a little OSS in the corporation and save a little green too :)

We’ll be at Day-Con on the 11th, VA Tech on the 17th, Phreaknic on the 25th and finally back in studio and probably HD the very next week. Stay tuned to Hak5.org for all the details and announcements or follow @hak5 on the twitter.

Oh yes, and thanks for all the help with the donating for Hak5 stickers! We’re getting close to our goals. :)

    Can’t wait for HD :O. It’s going to make Hak5 ten times more epic. I loved the segment on Jasager.

  • the show just keeps getting better! can you guys & jinx make up collar hak5 shirts? We have to wear collard shirts to work. – it would be great to sport a hak5 five shirt at work. Also, is it possible to share the hak5 desktop backgrounds all the viewers are creating on your webpage? thanks.

    .NET can be installed under WinPE 2.x (WAIK), all you need to do is to play a little with ImageX. It is almost the same procedure as adding a new Diver. I found out it is even possible to run HTML Applications, VBScript, WSH etc…

  • great episode – good to hear darren will be at Day-Con II .. i’m thinking about making an appearance. will tweet you if i do go. overall great show.
