Thar be dust here...

Was looking for a copy of an old script I created and figured it might be here...
It's not. But it's worth writing this:
I CAN'T BELIEVE 64D IS STILL ALIVE!? It's insane. Hell, my last blog post was written 3 years ago. I started here around 5 years ago...
Great job guys. Congrats are in order for being able to keep this site alive (and active) for this long!
Develop games on the 360 for free (and other things)...
Posted on February 25, 2008 at 20:35
Microsoft started a new promotion called DreamSpark. DreamSpark gives all college students (that live in the us, uk, and a few other places) free software that normally costs an arm and a leg for. The software you can get for free includes:
1. Windows Server 2003
2. Visual Studio 2005 and 2008
3. XNA Framework 2.0 (and a 1yr Creators Club subscription)
4. SQL Server 2003
XNA is the framework that allows you easy development of Windows and 360 games. They're giving away Creators Club subscriptions as well, which allow the developer to develop Xbox 360 games.

I'm currently interning at my town hall as an IT tech. I'm helping their shitty website become... Well... Less shitty, in addition to helping solve problems daily on any of the staff member's computers...
I also received a free server (Dell PowerEdge 4300) that I'm currently playing around with...
Oh, and one more thing... My hosting company, CoreFusion (www.core-fusion.net) has kind of stopped growing and I am currently looking for suggestions of things I can add to increase some customer flow. It's a post2host webhost, meaning, post in our forums, and get free webhosting (ad free, FTP, MySQL, PHP, etc, etc). So if anyone has any ideas, just leave them in a comment here.
Unlock GradeBook (GradeQuick) Files!
Posted on January 27, 2008 at 00:21
This is simply the process by which you (without my java application) can add yourself as a user to gradequick, unlock the files, and change grades.
1. In gradequick's main directory is a file called "users.txt". Open it, and at the bottom add yourself a username and home directory (following prior examples).
2. Open up gradequick, and try logging in as your new user. You can create a password now.
3. Open up a gradebook in a hex editor. If the first two bytes read "NO" then the file is not locked, just open it through gradequick and change grades. If the first three bytes read "YES" then simply change the "Y" to a "N" and the "E" to a "O" and delete the "S" byte.
4. Save it and open it in gradequick (file->open gradebook).
I'd be more specific, but I don't have gradequick sitting in front of me. Should be simple enough to follow.
GradeQuick Unlocker v0.1b
Posted on January 04, 2008 at 06:40
Well this has been finished for some time now, but I just haven't the time to post it ^_^.
It unlocks, but cannot re-lock yet (if I recall correctly). Locking will be completed within a week or month or so...
Enjoy! Hope it works for you. To add a user to GradeQuick simply open the users.txt file and add one for yourself. You'll set the password with gradequick.
It's a Java JAR file by the way.
New.Gm - Alpha 1.0!
Posted on November 05, 2007 at 23:53
Just for 64digits members only so far... New.Gm has been released as a shitty hack-job alpha!
Everyone who put in a non-ip address for the nameserver's ip field will be omitted until their account has been updated (just pm me for now, I'll finish the script later).
Also realize that unless your webhost has a dns zone file for your .gm domain then it will NOT work. Just create an addon domain or a new account for your .gm domain name (if your host fails at life, then use coreFusion, http://core-fusion.net/forums
To update local DNS records:
Just leave the client running, or it will update on each startup (of the client). Eventually I'll make it minimize and have fun like that, but not yet... Too lazy so far.
I'll restate this, YOU MUST HAVE ADDED ON YOUR .GM DOMAIN, OR REGISTERED IT WITH A SEPARATE ACCOUNT! If you do not then your .gm domain will not resolve properly!
And don't give me bullshit like "Well thats why we have a DNS system in place... etc", blah blah blah. Just tell me what you think of it.
If you still haven't registered your .gm domain name, then just do so IN FIREFOX ONLY (for now) at:
new.gm - Register your .gm domain names!
Posted on November 04, 2007 at 17:07
I was incredibly bored from re-making my proxy-avoidance site, so I took a break, and am finishing up a program which will allow you access to a new domain extension, .gm.
The .gm domain name was created to allow the users of the GMC to have a "Top-Level domain" (because we all know that Game Maker users are teh broke).
So register your .gm domain names on my shitty registrar (really, i threw it together in like... No time).
Did I mention they were free?
The first release of new.gm is expected tonight, or tomorrow, depending on if I feel like working on it.
In other news, I'm re-writing my proxy avoidance front-end, and giving it the domain name: www.tunnelyou.com
. You'll be able to use the proxy scripts through there as well as download them to host on your own server (if you'd like).
The source code is released under some creative commons license, I'll figure that out when I finish it (probably share-alike).
I also finished the quickbooks unlocker, but I haven't yet made it relock the files... Later on...
And that's about it...

The most recent "hack" I've done is to GradeQuick, a software used by schools to digitalize grades, attendances, etc. Teachers using the software input the grades, assignments, etc and GradeQuick does all the behind the scenes calculations.
I'm currently working on an easy to use Java application that will take care of the unlocking/locking process, but it's a relatively simple thing to do by hand.
Speaking of school-related hacking, I've gotten control of the highest network privileges that one could get on my network, and have created a backup admin account that I use whenever I need to access people's personal folders or whatever ^_^.
Our school allowed full (besides porn of course) access to the web for all teachers. I've recovered a few teachers username/passwords so I've basically got unrestricted access to the interwebs.
And that's about it... If you'd like more information about my GradeQuick unlocker, I'll be posting betas and that up at: http://steverolfe.com/blog/
(which is brand new as of a few days ago).
"Hack" Joomla Gallery 2.x
Posted on September 17, 2007 at 07:48
I've been trying to get full-size images from a site that uses Joomla gallery for a bit now, and finally found a sort-of flaw in their system. I've only tested this on a handfull of sites so far, but here's the process in which you can... Well... Get full size (un-watermarked) images in Joomla Gallery 2 (don't know the version).
1. Find your picture
2. Get the image's address
3. Paste it in your address bar, and remove the serialNumber and GALLERYSID (just the junk)
4. Now, move back a few numbers on the itemId. The gallery creates a thumb, a smaller size, and a few for actual downloading/buying. On this specific site, they had 4-5 pictures of each (thumbnails, watermarks, etc)
And you have officially saved some cash lol. Enjoy, and tell me if you have any issues. Remember, this ONLY works for sites using "Joomla Gallery". I'm guessing the entire 2.x series, but i dunno... I have to test it some mores to get specifics.
While i'm on the subject, i just finished an 80 mile bike tour. The people in the pictures are me and my dad, biking on day one in the pouring fucking rain...

Bleh, I haven't posted here in like... Too long, so how about another hacking article?
This is meant to be used for security reasons, so don't go and hack the next site you find, but still it's pretty usefull for that sort of thing.
Instead of copy-pasta ima link directly to the article so it's not teh broke and i don't have to make it work here:
GURGLE SCHMERGLE... Aparently you need to be registered? Grr... I'll fix that... FIXED!
So instead of me randomly coming on to dig up my article on Fonera hacking, you get another one. Lucky you, just don't blow it all in one place ^_^.
What am i currently up to? About 5-ish freelance jobs, and a HUGE website that will reel me in a few grand. Besides that i'm in exams now, and i fucked up my computer again (thanks to winblows for being gay when i decide i want to try linux <_<).
Thats mostly it... Beryl didn't work on my PC so i'm a little pissy... I was pretty excited to play with the awesome effects, but no <_<...
And... Err... Yeah, thats about it.
Basic DOS (net) commands explained!
Posted on March 23, 2007 at 23:28
[l]I[/l][sc]'ve taken the liberty to post some common dos commands i use to find specific information on a network...[/sc]
NET USER /DOMAIN
This command allows you to get an ENTIRE list of usernames on the network, great for seeing, and zeroing in on admins. If you add a username to that command then you will get specifics on that username (example: net user /domain Default)
NET USER is a powerful command that will allow you to make changes to an existing user: net user /domain username /field:new_data, or even add a user of your own: net user /domain username /add
NET GROUP /DOMAIN
Net group will get groups on a network. If you add a group's name to it then it will get you a list of who is in the group.
NET USE U: Path/to/server (64D messed up the slashes... they should be NOT /)
Excellent command that will create a networked drive. In this example it creates the "U" drive that connects to the Path host and then the folders o and then server.
More commands to come later, but these can get you started with hacking your school's network. Also realize that you NEED to make yourself an admin to use most of these commands. A local might be sufficient to use some of them, such as the ones to find information on a user.
