Re: RUaNinja? Win Signed Copies of Ninja Hacking Book

Wow only 6 made it?  I'll start working on my writeup.

I am also in an organization called Toastmaters, which is a public speaking group.  I was considering doing this as a speech that involves visual aids, so doing a writeup would assist in that decision as well.

I must have fallen out of the dense tree and hit several branches as i'm still getting nowhere with this one, even with the hint :(

After hearing from some out there, I guess we'll have to do a prequel hint. So...


Hint #.5

With all those newfangled smart phones out there, those dang QR Codes are showing up everywhere!

GRRR... Really didn't think that was part of the challenge. Which is probably why I was never able to start it.

For those why don't have smartphones, there are websites with online QR readers, too.  If it makes you feel better, chrisj, I had fits trying to read the code, at first, and thought it might not be a clue, either.  Remember to lower your camera resolution, or it might not be able to read properly.

Re: RUaNinja? Win Signed Copies of Ninja Hacking Book

I came way late to this party. I saw the QR code and figured it had something to do with the challenge but the only thing my phone got from it was an email address so I wasn't sure whether this was part of the challenge or not.

...and then it was time to go back to work.

Re: RUaNinja? Win Signed Copies of Ninja Hacking Book

@WCNA - but isn't the email address, in and of itself, kind of 'thought provoking'?  As it would certainly appear to be, maybe dropping an email to that address would be worth your time.

@Data_Raid - bwahahahahaha - yeah, I spent plenty of time exploring that, too.  (you're too funny)

Learned something new!  I had worked a little with those 2D barcodes before, but only using handheld scanners in a warehouse.  I didn't know that there were smartphone apps and websites that decoded those for you too.

It was. But I've seen some pretty good email addresses over the last couple of years. The guys at Sun Microsystems (Before Oracle bought them) had some great ones.

So while my phone scanned and I saw the address. And I thought, yeah maybe... I ended up not doing it because I figured he got a really cool email address.

I observed it, but figured there was NO way it was that easy to start.
