In much happier Nmap news, I'm pleased to report that the Nmap projectnow has a public SVN server so you can always check out the latestversion. Due to a bug in SVN, we use a username as "guest" with nopassword rather than anonymous. So check it out with the command:
$svn co --username guest --password "" svn://svn.insecure.org/nmap
Then do thenormal:
$cd nmap
$./configure --prefix=/opt/nmap
$make
$sudo make install

converting 3gp movies to flv

In todays mobile phones the 3GPP standard is widely in use for videos on the phone.
we use two tools mencoder (from mplayer) and ffmpeg (from mplayer too)

we extract the movie without sound
/opt/mplayer/bin/mencoder movie.3g2 -nosound -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -o movie.avi
then we extract the audio file into audiodump.wav
/opt/mplayer/bin/mplayer -vo null -ao pcm -af resample=8000,volume=+4db:sc movie.3g2
we combine the two stream into an flv moovie
/opt/ffmpeg/bin/ffmpeg -i movie.avi -i audiodump.wav movie.flv

then you can put the movie on your server
http://jan.kneschke.de/projects/flv-streaming/

Here is how i compiled the ffmpeg
follow the steps from this tutorial
http://howto-pages.org/ffmpeg/#build
here is my final configure command
./configure --prefix=/opt/ffmpeg --enable-amr_nb --enable-amr_wb --enable-libogg --enable-vorbis --enable-libgsm --enable-xvid --enable-a52 --enable-mp3lame --enable-gpl
make && make install
for mplayer here is how i did it
wget http://www2.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/MPlayer-1.0rc1.tar.bz2
wget http://www2.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/essential-20061022.tar.bz2
tar -jxvf ../essential-20061022.tar.bz2
tar -jxvf ../MPlayer-1.0rc1.tar.bz2
mkdir /usr/lib/codecs/
cd essential-20061022
mv * /usr/lib/codecs/
./configure --prefix=/opt/mplayer

some debian packages are needed before all of these
apt-get install libgsm1-dev toolame libtwolame-dev libgsm1-dev libvorbis-dev libfaad-dev libogg libogg-dev


lame and xvid were installed from source

how to speed up dns for faster browsing

[i use this tip for speeding up dns resolving when i access zapp network wireless or romtelecom adsl ]
You can run a DNS cache on your computer. This will speed up the process of looking up domain names when browsing. The difference is about 30-60 ms. Multiply that difference by the number of websites you visit a day for an approximate estimate of the speed improvement.The following instructions are for someone with a broadband internet connection, where the computer gets it’s local IP address using DHCP from the router in your home or office.

wee until you die for an wii

[If you drink too much water , it can happen that you die , at least he won a WII console]Jennifer Strange, 28, a mother of three, died from water intoxication after taking part in a "Hold your wee for a Wii" competition on a morning radio show on Sacramento station KDND-FM Friday. She was one of about 20 contestants who tried to outdrink each other without going to the toilet and was reported to have drunk about seven quarts (6-1/2 liters) of water in a bid to win the Wii for her children. She was the runner-up. After the contest she called in sick at work and was found dead at her home about five hours later

the truth about hills and mountains

PENIS ENVY may be a thing of the past. The clitoris, it turns out, is no "little hill" as its derivation from the Greek kleitoris implies. Instead, it extends deep into the body, with a total size at least twice as large as most anatomy texts show, and tens of times larger than the average person realise [another text by Helen O'Connell]

The clitoris rivals the penis in size.

"she has found that the live clitoris is even larger than she first thought."
"There's nothing quite like the shape of a clitoris," she said.
[ED: i guess we have to study more clitoris ]
"The original anatomists weren't interested in the clitoris. The penis was much more interesting."
[ED: i guess they were males and it was easy to study that first, I wonder where i can find more papers by this doctor]
